    Have we beaten this one to death? I think we have. I guess it can sit for awhile till somebody gets stirred up again.

    but it is cut and dried, though not the parents. it is an out and out denial of the privacy of the teen, and the position of the anti-abortionist lobby to deny abortion one way or another. it doesn't matter who gets in trouble, abortion has to be stopped and parents are the suckers that have been chosen to stop it no matter what. any other reason is just what the anti-abortion lobby want you to think, but their plan is clear and woefully well on the way to stopping anyone from having an abortion no matter. as you should know, the lobby will stop at npthing, including murder, humiliation, and forced birth to get what they want. those are the facts and they cannot be denied.

    According to some parents I've heard, a teenager has no right to privacy. But I am in complete agreement with you on this.

    many parents i've talked to also say that teens have no privacy, but many say they do. i may be mistaken, but i believe the courts are also divided on it. so the question seems to be in limbo when a teen is involved. mayhap things will change directions once the election is over, but i doubt it will, at least not in the forseeable future.

    i am of the opinion this thread is about exhausted. anyone else feel that way?

    Now bring on the apologists.
    I just have to comment here............did anyone at FG ever have unprotected sex in their teen years? What are you going to ACC......kepp all your teens housebound until marriage? You cannot control them...........So give them good birth control advice.........YES that means abstension!!!!!! Yes that means not doing drugs or alcohol so they do not lose control of what they feel is right..

    What are you going to do after that? Trust and hope!!!!!!!!!!

    Parents have a responsibility to their kids and society to raise responsible adults. You can't raise responsible adults by keeping them housebound until marriage; you have to teach them responsibility. Teaching them responsibility and allowing them limited freedom within your set boundaries in no way relieves the parent from full responsibility.

    I informed my kids last night that I am implementing a "Don't ask, don't tell" policy to ensure their absolute right to privacy. I will no longer check to see if they done their homework, if they are eating right, or if they are practicing good hygiene. If their eyes glaze over I won't check to see if they are doing drugs since it's really none of my business. If they suddenly have new clothes, I won't check to see if they are shoplifting with their friends. If I've been a good friend to them, then they'll come to me with their problems, otherwise they always have their crack dealer to fall back on. We all know the crack dealer will give them good advice.
