The Associated Press headline screamed “Pivotol decline in child obesity.” The article declared, knowingly, that “after decades on the rise, childhood obesity rates recently have essentially been flat.” The article makes the assumption that this is as a result of governmental involvement with nutrition programs. Actually it is a non-news item because it says that obesity levels aren’t going anywhere.

Another AP headline declared “How old is too old?” The opening statement proclaims to reflect the public’s opinion on aging: “Ninetieth birthday, maybe okay, but not 120,” according to a Pew Pole. There were no quotes from 95 year olds, for example, especially any saying “I’m too old to still be living.”

The point here is not whether the stats on obesity are declining or whether one or another age is too old. The point is that each and everyone is constantly being evaluated and analyzed with data recorded and reported somewhere. Then it is turned into what is now referred to as “best practices” which becomes government iron-clad policy.

How did we let ourselves get into this position of being, basically, guinea pigs for the government?

The Assembly returned from recess on August 5th and produced its latest long list of (Senate originated) bills approved for passage to the next committee or to the Governor.

On Monday, August 12, beginning at 10:00 AM in the State Capitol, another huge long list of (Assembly authored) bills will be heard in the Senate Appropriations Committee.

An online search of legislation for bills related to expanded abortion access or mental and physical health services administered by nurseing but non-physician staff brings up a total of 15 related bills; anyone of which could be last minute amended to incorporate portions of all the other bills before the Governor signs anything.

That is why it is so very important for a huge show of opposition on the lead bill, AB 154.

All of these bills are supported by stakeholder entities with the same generic purpose, expanded access to expanded government services, taxpayer funding, no supervision.

For our purposes the most infamous of these are:

AB 154, Tony Atkins, Abortion performed by non-physicians. The House Speaker, John Perez, (D-L.A.) has spoken publicly about the necessity of passing this bill in order to further enable women broader access to abortion. It’s as though aborting one’s child is looked upon by these legislators as a required Rite of Passage into socially responsible adulthood for women.

AB 980, Richard Pan, (D) Building Standards: Abortion. Not only must women be encouraged to fulfill their social duty by aborting their progeny, the perpetrators of abortion must be allowed to provide this “service” with unlimited authorization, supervision or oversight in either the personnel or the facilities used.

AB 174, Bob Bonta, (D-Oakland), Public School Health Centers. Establishes a grant program in the Oakland, Ca. School district for a pilot program of mental health services to students and their families “impacted by trauma.”

Two federal bills, HR 320 and HR1100, have similar goals.

This bill started its life as a weapons bill and within a month was gutted and amended into a mental health-4-all pilot program. This bill provides every stakeholder agency within travel distance to have access to students and their families to convince them that they need professional services to overcome trauma. Trauma will be re-defined to include, apparently, bullying, family violence, mental and behavioral health, ooutreach, education and counseling by a vast array of community health care workers, social workers, licensed and unlicensed “mental health professional(s)” and community non-profit agencies.

Here, especially, is where a rich supply of personal data will be collected, analyzed, researched, compared sent to scientific bodies to analyse, and selected for Best Practices.

Here is a statement provided by the National Assembly on School-Based Care (NASBC):

  • There are currently 200 SHCs in California.
  • Forty-four percent of SHCs are in high schools.
  • Thirty-one percent are in elementary schools.
  • Thirteen percent are in middle schools, and twelve percent are "school-linked" or mobile medical vans.
  • About 70 percent of students receive free or reduced price meals.
  • Since 2012, CSHCA estimates that 13,500 children have gained access to health care in their school through the expansion of SHCs.
  • SHCs are administered by a variety of organizations, including school districts, Federally Qualified Health Centers, county health departments, hospitals, community-based agencies, and private physician groups.
  • They are financed through grants from state, local, and private sources as well as reimbursements from public programs, such as the Child Health and Disability Prevention Program and Medi-Cal.
  • According to CSHCA, more than half of SHCs recover less than 50 percent of their operating costs from billing sources.

SB 491, Ed Hernandez (D) Nurse Practitioners. Amends the Nurse Practice Act. “Authorizes a nurse practitioner to perform certain acts such as medical diagnosis, prescribe drugs or devices refer patients delegate taks to medifal assistants, order hospice care (or no care) without physician supervision or family or parental knowledge.

This vastly amended bill actually failed passage in its Senate Business, Professions & Consumer Protection hearing last week mostly because of the unknown costs of administering, but was authorized for re-consideration.

The Irony? Patients who sign DNRs-do not resuscitate- forms can’t get a reprieve, but bills that carry a DNR order can be resuscitated apparently.

SB 493, Ed Hernandez, (D) Pharmacy Practice. Among other expanded scope of practice issues, this bill authorizes pharmacists to furnish “self-administered hormonal contraceptives.

Hearing pending in the Assembly Health Committee.

SB 494, Bill Monning. (D-San Luis Obispo) with Ed Hernandez, (D) as co-author. Health Care Providers: California Health Benefit. As stated in the bill “Authorizes assigning health care enrollees to a primary care physician if that physician also supervises one or more non-physician medical practitioner. Defines non-physician medical practitioners as a physician assistant or a nurse practitioner.”

In other words, instead of a primary care physician, the bill would add non-physician medical practitioner to the definition of a primary care provider such as a physician assistant, or nurse practitioner.

The bill is awaiting a re-hearing in the Assembly Committee on Health.

Heavenly Father, with confidence and firm trust we come
to you in our great need. We thank you for answering the prayer
even before we ask, because we know that it is your Holy Will.
Remove from our county the scourge of abortion. Change the
minds and hearts of all who promote this evil, or who seek abortion
as a remedy. Make us willing to make the sacrifice of
prayer andpenance necessary to obtain this grace from you.
Heavenly Father we ask you this, through the intercession of
Mary, and in the name of Jesus, Your Son. Amen

Take away God, all respect for civil laws, all regard for even the most necessary institutions disappears; justice is scouted; the very liberty that belongs to the law of nature is trodden underfoot; and men go so far as to destroy the very structure of the family, which is the first and firmest foundation of the social structure.
- St. Pius X, Jucunda Sane, March 12, 1904
