    Most schools do not even have a "school nurse" anymore, they have parent volunteers. I know because I was one!...I do NOT want some secretary or parental volunteer to give my child medication.

    Are the schools also making the person handing out the medication any medical training in what side effects to look for? Is the child staying in the nurses station once the pill is taken to be watched in CASE there are complications or are they given a pill and told to get back to class?

    So the school has a permission slip, does this absolve them of ANY/ALL responsiblity if something happens to this child?

    This ENTIRE idea of the school doling out pills to children is assinine, to say the least and criminal at most.

    Exactly right! What people are saying is that Natural Law, nature itself, is wrong. The idea that someone should be held accountable for their actions and have to deal with the consequences of those actions is , sad but true, a foreign concept to most people today. The arguments presented against natural law, which are all these things are, are ludicrous.
