July 14, 2019 - San Francisco - California Right to Life News - The most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help, the sage coinage of which is attributed to Ronald Reagan and first used during a campaign speech.
At the time everybody laughed, but in the years since it’s become obvious that the government wants American citizens to cede our rightful, God given freedoms, responsibilities and even our children over to them.
During the first part of the 21st century they have, most notably under successive Obama Administrations, doubled down on their headlong push towards supervising and planning-for-all by creating public private partnerships, joining government and non-profit i.e. non-elected private community groups into ventures with profit making results. These groups include Planned Parenthood , school-based health clinics, PTA’s, LGBTQ advocates and dozens of non-profit Social/emotional learning groups who now, thanks to legislation, have access to the schools and to the training of teachers .
Legislators, media, are constantly employing fear tactics about the physical and mental health and well-being of our children, that is ifwe fail to let the elected officials and their cohorts run our lives for us. This is all caused, so they claim, by parents and citizens who fail to realize the benefits to be derived from a gracious government wanting to “help.”
The edutcratic-political elite have created a legislative mandate that will require that every child receive a mental health or trauma-post traumatic stress disorder [PTSD]-experience evaluation.
For example AB1005, by Democrat Joaquin Arambula seeks to create an extensive bureaucracy to help foster children and youth through what he calls a “Family Urgent Response System.” This would follow the guidelines set for the Continuum of Care legislation created previously to help children, “heal from trauma and thrive”
Yeah that last part is a direct cop from the famous Kaiser-Permanente Medical advertising “tag line."
Governor Newsom used the Mental Health hook during his campaign for office. An Executive Order followed requiring the departments of Health and Education to formulate “ Master Plans ” covering the Mental Health issues for “ Cradle to Gr ave.”
Thus invested and if put into effect California’s Democrats will wield the type of power that would be the envy of a Lenin or Stalin.
This is NOT a misprint, fully 480 bills on the Mental Health subject were submitted just this term . So far 37 have passed their house of origin. Our organization California Right to Life Council has been closely following 8 of them. The 5 listed below are the most insidious. The vast majority of the remaining Mental health and Master Plan Bills carry the funding and the subject matter and citizens in need [the state’s call of course] in need of ”counseling.”
As least one bill regarding trauma would have a cadre of “peer counselors” receiving trauma training, including the training of Janitors to recognize abuse in their peers. When they talk about counselors they don’t mean psychologists or medical doctors.
Due to the already huge financial demands on California’s budget placed by just this kind of utopian social engineering by the Democrat Party, this meddling will be enacted using a bare bones regime with the “caregivers” - hold on to your hats - chosen from non-professional, self-declared former druggies and sexual abuse “victims” who might receive a couple weeks of [state approved] training before counseling your grade level or high school students to deal with their traumas.
A few more of these gems:
AB 547 , Lorena Gonzalez, (D)/SB10, Jim Beall, (D), Mental Health Peer Support certification, in Assembly Health Committee as of 7/2/19. Passing unanimously through 4 other committees.
SB 228 , Hannah Beth Jackson, (D), Master Plan on Aging, This is the Authorizing bill. This legislation also requires the Governor to appoint a Master Plan Director and establishes an Aging Task Force for the purpose of developing a Master Plan on Aging, “as specified.” This bill also requires the Office of the Chancellor of the Community Colleges and California State University to develop, and authorizes an Aging Task Force of 13 members or agencies. (representing non-profit community agencies and stakeholders)
AB1287 , Adrin Nazarian, (D), Universal Assessments: “No Wrong Door System. “Navigators” will assist the seniors or young adult crowd to find the right services for their special needs.
AB1382 , Cecilia M. Aguiar-Curry, (D) Master Plan for Aging. This would appear to be requiring the unionization of all childcare workers including private and in-home care.
The Cult of Death :
Ron Panzer of the Hospice Patients Alliance, author of the highly regarded book: Hospice and Palliative Care: Stealth Euthanasia. Has this to say about assisted suicide or “palliative” care services: Any time the government controls health care, and not the patient and physician, it becomes a matter of economics, budgeting, and cost control…Therefore, the costly elderly and disabled are to be euthanized/”assisted” to commit suicide . He, further, urges all of us to educate the public about the reality that left unchecked it will be the government and un-elected advocates - will “ease” people into death one way or another.
Death FROM a Salesman :
Be advised of the support by the Democrat controlled House for a new approach to encouraging patients to accept a planned death - Palliative Care Hospice Education Training Act. This program [if enacted] will be used to “train” the heretofore mentioned rag-tag- gaggle of assisted suicide supporting counselors, teachers, medical personnel, former drug users and petty criminals on how to “encourage” patient acceptance of assisted suicide and or palliative care - the latter being the ground floor level entry into assisted suicide.
If you frequent the obituary columns in your newspaper you may have noticed that some obits carry profuse thanks given to patient care groups such as Vitas Care, a major provider of hospice [non] care. Not all hospice or elder care programs, either at separate facilities or in-home care, are the same. They all need to be thoroughly checked out to insure that one’s family member does not become a victim of a planned, scheduled death, as a result of removal of nutrition/hydration from the patient.
The number of bills and their increasingly intrusive nature have expanded, making it almost impossible to keep up with them. It takes huge blocks of time to read the bills, research the subject matter, look up the supporters and opposers, write the position papers for the legislative committees and track the constantly amended bills.
An army of researchers is needed.
The fact that, apparently, the California Catholic Dioceses, by educating their parishioners to the dangers of some legislation, have succeeded in getting SB 360 [mandating that priests break the seal of Confession] was pulled from hearings, shows it can be done on other issues. Be aware, though, that this bill is not dead. It has become a two-year bill meaning it can be brought up again in January of 2020.
We at California Right to Life Committee, hope that the information we have been providing is of help to understanding the public policy arena trust that it has given you a sense of confidence to take your own stand in the public realm and defend your rights… God given and Constitutionally-protected.
