I doubt I am the only one that has read about this story before? A different time and place and the story didn’t end well. The ultimate intrusion by the government. Not just “at risk” babies, but every single baby born in Oregon.This is only the beginning. Next will come the determination of a safe home. I am sure guns will be next on the ban for any baby in a home. ultimately government raised children.
Oregon Governor Kate Brown introduced a new bill that will allow in-home inspections and ‘guidance’ of the families of newborn babies. It is another costly Big Brother initiative to butt into the lives of every family with a newborn in Oregon.
IT’S AN EMERGENCY FOR PUBLIC SAFETY
They describe it as an “emergency” to preserve “the public peace, health, and safety.”
“This 2019 Act being necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, and safety, an emergency is declared to exist, and this 2019 Act takes effect on its passage,” according to the bill.
It’s an emergency, suggesting it will be required, with no opt-out, and who knows where the buttinskys could eventually take this.
The study must be completed by December 2019. The Governor and 18 others sponsoring the bill want it to result in universal home visits for all newborns, including adoptions.
IT’S DONE IN THE NAME OF CARE BUT IT’S REGARDLESS OF NEED
All parents would receive a series of two or three visits by someone like a health care practitioner. The visits could include basic health screenings for babies; hooking parents up with primary care physicians; linking them to other services; and coordinating the childhood immunizations that babies need.”
Oregon Health Authority’s director, Patrick Allen, told the Beaverton Valley Times that he’s ecstatic. “This isn’t something for people in trouble. This is stuff all kids need. Stuff my kids needed,” he said, calling it a “six-year investment.”
Programs requiring taxes are “investments” in liberal/leftist lingo.
