I thought I would post a few interesting stats. For the gazillionth time, I've been asked/told what the Democratic Party (or as the people who are trying to be smart-alec say, "The Democrat Party" LOL) carries the burden for creating. I came across a few interesting facts. Please, please, check out the information received. It really doesn't take that long. Knowing the truth is worth the time invested.

Engel v. Vitale, 1962. Here, the Democratic Party is supposedly the one who "took prayer out of school." A look-see into the case shows several points of interest. First, prayer was not taken out of school. Forced prayer was. Prayer shouldn't be forced. I would think there would be no argument there - even amongst religious people. For instance, I'm not Catholic. If a school teacher wanted to pray to Mary, which would be considered "school prayer," I would be against it for my particular child. But, the most interesting part is this: The case was decided by six Supreme Court justices. Three were Republicans and 3 were Democrats. Huh? I thought the "Democrat Party" did it?!?! You don't mean that mass email was wrong? Yep, I mean just that.

Roe v Wade - we all know what this one is, right? Ab0rtion. Forever, we've heard how the Democratic Party is evil because of this issue. Well, in actuality, the Supreme Court majority vote came from 5 Republicans and 4 Democrats. What? Also, the year was 1973 when Nixon, a Republican, was in office. Are you kidding? No, I am not. But, But, today Republicans are the ones who want to abolish it, right? You tell me. During six years of total control, they didn't even try. So........

The next claim was that schools in Mass. could take girls for ab0rtion without parental knowledge if a certain bill went through. I looked up the bill. The bill says that the school can take children to the doctor under special circumstances and pregnancy is one of those special circumstances. I would assume that if the girl went into labor or started bleeding, everyone involved would hope the school would get her to the doctor. Thatís the extent of the bill. Mass. State Law says that no unmarried girl under the age of 18 can obtain an ab0rtion without the written consent of both parents, the guardians, or the court. The Mass. State Law would not allow a school to do what was claimed.

The specific language of the bills & the law are as follows with links to both:
The document says this:
"MGL Chapter 112, Section 12F allows a minor to receive treatment without parental consent in special circumstances:
Any minor may give consent to his medical or dental care at the time such care is sought if (i) he is married, widowed, divorced; or (ii) he is the parent of a child, in which case he may also give consent to medical or dental care of the child; or (iii) he is a member of any of the armed forces; or (iv) she is pregnant or believes herself to be pregnant; or (v) he is living separate and apart from his parent or legal guardian, and is managing his own financial affairs; or (vi) he reasonably believes himself to be suffering from or to have come in contact with any disease defined as dangerous to the public health pursuant to section six of chapter one hundred and eleven; provided, however, that such minor may only consent to care which relates to the diagnosis or treatment of such disease. All information and records kept in connection with the medical or dental care of a minor who consents thereto in accordance with this section shall be confidential between the minor and the physician or dentist, and shall not be released except upon the written consent of the minor or a proper judicial order."

Massachusetts Law states that a minor under the age of 18 MUST HAVE consent of both parents or guardians or court.
