A Strange World

I saw this story of Savana Redding (the 13 year old who was stripped searched by the school nurse) in the news recently and most recently on Good Morning America. I'm split over this issue of children and teens being stripped seached at the mercy of school officials. I'm hoping there wouldn't be need for it in most schools. As a parent, I would want to be present and notified if strip searches were allowed in schools. I feel bad for Savana Redding. I really do. This has obviously impacted her entire life. However, it just makes me think about another issue. Just wondering . . . why should parents be called if your child's going to be stripped searched for drugs at school? BUT if your underage daughter wants to get an abortion her parents don't need to be notified? I'm just sayin', if we really wanna protect our children maybe it's something to think about.

Wow! I had no idea. It makes the mama bear in me roar. I want to protest and scream at the top of my lungs that it has to come to this. Makes me think even harder about homeschooling.

Man, I've always hated that a child can have an abortion with out the knowledge of her parents.

Makes my blood boil just to think about it!
