Apparently we condone criminal acts.

In the paper today there is an article     Schools arrange secret abortions   the feed back  was requested  I wonder if they will  include my response  or will we allow schools and Councillors to make up their  own law. my response is as follows

Under 16  year olds are not old enough to make decisions on their own  and    having to keep the secret of an abortion  from their mother is massive.

In no other aspect does a person under 16 have the  right to sign a contract  ,they can’t get married get a loan  drink   without parents’ consent. Where is the  exemption that says that they can when it comes to  abortions?

If they had to have their appendix out they would have to have parental consent   so why should  the decision to terminate be  any different, it is after all a surgical procedure  one which carried its own risks.

Then when we get to the person who had sex with the girl  .. and yes it still is an offence under the age of 16   we encourage silence   there by making the councillor   a party to the offence by covering up  and enabling the offender to go out and destroy some more lives.

Consider the crimes act Section  134 Sexual conduct with young person under 16 carries a penalty of 10 years   for  this offence

Section 71 Accessory after the fact-    (1) An accessory after the fact to an offence is one who, knowing any person to have been a party to the offence, receives, comforts, or assists that person or tampers with or actively suppresses any evidence against him, in order to enable him to escape after arrest or to avoid arrest or conviction.

It is for this very reason that we have legislation why can these councillors make up their own rules? It is not  up to the parents to demand a prosecution  it is  mandatory  .

Does this mean that   the privacy act over rides the crimes act ?   I think not

No one ever considered the long term effects on the girl  and the family  by keeping it quite.

And no one considers  that what they are doing is re writing the law.

  1. My responsibility as a parent is to care for my children until they turn 18. No-one else has a right to interfere with my responsibility. If I need help, I seek it. If the authorities decide I need help, they need to communicate. No-one has the right to go behind my back.
