Los Angeles is contemplating where to place its next Planned Parenthood facility and appears to be landing on none other than a high school campus. Notably, the clinic’s website acknowledges that “under California law minors have the right to consent to reproductive health services without parental consent or notification.”

While the clinic would not be offering abortions, puberty blockers or hormone therapy to students at the school location; however, the staff would be allowed to refer students to off-campus Planned Parenthood sites for “services not offered.”

Families and taxpayers should be horrified that the Norwalk-La Mirada USD is considering a partnership with Planned Parenthood,” Parents Defending Education president and founder Nicole Neily told Fox News.

“The fact that the contract specifically notes that ‘under California law minors have the right to consent to reproductive heth services without parental consent or notification’ is appalling in and of itself.”al

Referring to the possibility of students being referred to off-campus clinics for “services not offered,” Neily continued, “Other Planned Parenthood clinics do provide gender-affirming hormone therapy, so there is a very real possibility students will be referred off-campus to receive this treatment – again, with zero parental notification.”

“To add insult to injury, there is no way for parents to EVER obtain this information, as the contract asserts that all medical records are to be maintained by Planned Parenthood,” Neily said.

Supreme Court agrees to hear student debt forgiveness case

Six Republican-led states which are challenging the Biden admministration’s student loan forgiveness program will be heading to the Supreme Court.

Earlier this month a federal appeals court in St. Louis sided with Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and South Carolina, and issued an injunction blocking the plan to provide up to $20,000 in student-loan relief money to millions of individuals.

The Biden administration subsequently asked the Supreme Court to intervene. Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar asked the Supreme Court to lift the injunction.

“The Eighth Circuit’s erroneous injunction leaves millions of economically vulnerable borrowers in limbo, uncertain about the size of their debt and unable to make financial decisions with an accurate understanding of their future repayment obligations,” Prelogar, told the Supreme Court in a filing.

Prelogar told the court that if it denied relief, it should agree to consider the merits of the case instead.

CBS News reports:

The court said in a brief order that it will hear arguments in February, but will keep the program on hold for now. Last week, President Biden extended his pause on federal student loan payments until June 30, 2023, to give the court time to consider the dispute.

“We welcome the Supreme Court’s decision to hear the case on our student debt relief plan for middle and working class borrowers this February,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said. “This program is necessary to help over 40 million eligible Americans struggling under the burden of student loan debt recover from the pandemic and move forward with their lives. The program is also legal, supported by careful analysis from administration lawyers.”
