Parents now need to ask their kids for permission to see their medical records once the child turns 14, in rushed changes to My Health Record implemented since Monday.
Outraged parents have been shocked to discover their conversation with their family doctor about medical issues for their children now require the young teenager’s consent to discuss.
The Conservative Party has slammed the attack on parental rights and is alerting parents to (a) reverse the situation by ‘getting consent’ with My Health Record, but also (b) reverse the situation in the Senate.
The changes were snuck into the Senate by Senator Di Natale of the Greens and passed with Labor support – and waved through by the Coalition government in the House of Representatives – without a peep about parental rights.
The My Health Record website states :
“Under new My Health Record privacy laws, when a child turns 14, their authorised representatives, usually their parent/s or guardian/s, will automatically be removed from being able to access their child’s record.” (emphasis added)

“This is what happens when the Greens and their radical siblings in the Labor Party are left to roam unchecked in the Senate,” father and Conservative Party spokesman Lyle Shelton said, “Without more Conservative senators who respect parental rights, parents are shut out of knowing what’s happening to their own children.”
“At its heart the Greens have yet again sought to build a voting constituency with experimental politics. This is part of their push to use young people indoctrinated by a left-leaning education system to vote Green from the age of 16.”
“The fact that the Liberal’s health minister, Greg Hunt, waved this through is further evidence that the Liberals don’t have the courage to stand up to the Greens. This is why Australian Conservatives are needed in the Senate. Politicians no longer have the backs of parents but Australian Conservatives in the Senate will.”
