Why is it not ok for a teacher/school official to give your child a tylenol without your consent but it's ok for them to take your child to get a medical prodedure done without your consent?

I guess you are referring to an abortion?

I have never heard of an specific student being taken to an abortion clinic by the school staff, having a "medical procedure" and then being returned to school. All without parental consent or knowledge.

Is this one of those "urban myth" things? Or is it a fear tactic used by pro-lifers?

As long as it's necessary & they are given the correct dose...I wouldn't care if my kids' teachers gave them tylenol when they need it. I would like a note from them though, so I know the reason behind it and so I know what time it was given in case my child needs more.

I'd like to know why it's okay (in Illinois) for schools to give anti-anxiety meds to elementary school kids without parental consent.  As far as a medical procedure... God help a school if they take my child to have something done without my consent... unless, of course, it is something that could save my child's life during an emergency.
