SACRAMENTO, August 7, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The board of Roseville Joint Union High School District has voted to require parental notification of student medical appointments. The move upset liberals because it overturned a policy allowing confidential medical visits, including “reproductive health” such as contraception and abortion, during school hours.  Trustee Dean Forman, who supported the change, said allowing students to obtain medical treatment without their parents knowledge is a “crime against families. Let’s get rid of [the state] being in our business and tend to our own business as parents in our local jurisdiction,” he said.  Many parents were relieved. “I don’t want my role usurped just because some parents aren’t caring for their children,” said Karen England, a mother of two alumni of Granite Bay High School.  For local coverage:  https://www.sacbee.com/content/news/story/7171635p-8118763c.html
