Dear Board Members,

 

Please reject any proposal to establish a school-based clinic in our community. Our National Conference of Catholic Bishops issued a 1987 "Statement on School-Based Clinics," wherein they recommended skepticism regarding the overall agenda of the school-based clinic campaign.

Our schools are having enough problems educating our children, we do not need to get involved in comprehensive health care that can include contraceptives and abortion referrals both without parental knowledge or consent.

Thank you for your consideration.

 

Sincerely,

 

Moira McHugh, President
