Lake County Right to Life will be holding it’s next Educational Forum on School Based Clinics. The Forum will be held in the Conference Center of St. Joseph’s Church in Round Lake. Our presenter will be Lori Higgins from the Illinois Family Institute, who is an expert on schools.
Round Lake Area School District 116 has announced that planning is almost complete for a School Based Clinic (SBC) in the high school. An SBC provides many basic medical services, such as physicals and immunizations for low-income students. However, over the last 25 years, they have been surrounded by controversy because the primary reason SBCs exist, is actually to provide reproductive health care, which includes birth control, abortion pills and abortion referrals. The objective of SBCs is to make contraceptives and abortion available to all teenagers, regardless of their religious or cultural beliefs, without parental knowledge or consent.
This event is open to the public.
Event: Educational Forum on School Based Clinics
Where: St Joseph’s Conference Center
114 Lincoln , Round Lake, IL,
When: February 25, 2012 8:45 AM – 11:00 AM
There are several videos on this blog regarding the proposed SBC. I have featured one of them in the right hand column that emphasizes the fact that parents WILL NOT be notified once they sign the master consent agreement. This is a very important event that you should plan on attending even if you do not currently have children in the Round Lake Area schools since once it gets a foothold, the SBC will be hard to remove for future generations.
