California Enacts Vaccine Law That Forces Parents to Choose Between Human Rights and Civil Rights

Posted 7/2/2015

by Barbara Loe Fisher

From flash to bang, it took the politically powerful corporate, medical trade and government lobbyists just six months this year to gut the human right to informed consent to medical risk taking and the civil right to a school education in California. They did it by enacting a new law (SB 277) signed by Governor Jerry Brown on June 29, 2015 that denies parents the legal right to file a personal belief exemption to vaccination for religious and conscientious beliefs so their children can attend school.
 
In order to sign the bill into law, Governor Brown had to abandon his long-standing legislative record as a champion of parental and religious rights and school education. NVIC called him out in a July 1, 2015 letter for failing to protect California families from segregation and discrimination based on vaccination and health care choices that parents make in the best interest of their minor children.
 
NVIC Press Release: Enactment of CA SB277 Threatens Human & Civil Rights in AmericaClick the image on the right to read NVIC’s July 1, 2015 press release and make a comment below.
 
Brute Political Power Wielded by Government and Industry Fast Tracks Oppressive Bill Into Law
 
Consistently throughout the legislative process, the numbers of California citizens testifying in opposition to the oppressive bill vastly numbered those testifying in support. The ramming of SB 277 through the California legislature despite strong public opposition was an impressive demonstration of the brute power that can be wielded by the public-private partnership between government and industry dominating the U.S. health care system in the 21st century.
 
Disinformation about the measles outbreak at Disneyland and vaccine safety and effectiveness was used by mainstream media outlets to forward the forced vaccination agenda in the legislature in an attempt to neutralize the growing number of citizens standing up and defending their human and civil rights in our nation’s largest state. Even though thousands of men, women and children from all walks of life came again and again to Sacramento this year to attend public rallies and testify against SB 277 in Senate and Assembly committee hearings, the Senate voted 25 to 10 and the Assembly voted 46 to 30 to approve the legislation after contentious floor debates.
 
Waking A Sleeping Giant
 
During the six months the bill was making its way through the legislative process, many new grassroots groups focusing on health and medical freedom issues were formed in the state with a common goal of opposing SB 277. A longtime Sacramento lobbyist commented that he had not seen so many citizens packing the halls of the state Capitol for hours to testify and hold protests on the Capitol grounds since the Vietnam war. Another observer commented that the forced vaccination bill had awakened “a sleeping giant.”
 
Get Vaccinated, Homeschool or Go To Jail?
 
California now becomes one of only three states, along with West Virginia and Mississippi, that denies children entry to daycare and school unless they get dozens of doses of federally recommended vaccines or a medical doctor grants a medical vaccine exemption, an exemption that doctors deny to 99.99 percent of children under narrow federal guidelines. Parents who do not comply with the new law will have to homeschool their children and, if they cannot homeschool for financial or other reasons, they may be subject to truancy laws that include fines and imprisonment for failing to provide their children with an education.
 
Incremental Steps on the Road to Medical Tyranny
 
In truth, the road to medical tyranny in California began in 2012. That was the year that the same pediatrician-turned politician and medical trade groups lobbied the legislature to pass AB 2109, a bill to force parents to get a signature from a medical doctor or state designated medical worker affirming the parent had been “educated” about vaccination before filing a personal belief vaccine exemption. NVIC opposed that bill because we knew it was an incremental step toward ramming a forced vaccination law like SB 277 through the legislature down the line, which is exactly what was done.
 
Citizens Push Back and Win in Other States
 
Vaccine use recommendations are made by federal health agencies and medical trade groups but vaccine mandates are state laws. More than 100 bills were introduced in multiple states this year to restrict or eliminate non-medical vaccine exemptions or add more vaccine mandates. The majority did not succeed.
 
In Texas alone, more than 20 vaccine-related bills were defeated because families across the state stood up and successfully defended their informed consent and civil rights. Although California has lost, temporarily at least, the personal belief vaccine exemption and Vermont lost the philosophical belief exemption (while retaining one for religious beliefs), citizens fought for their informed consent rights by educating their legislators and blocked bills in Washington, Oregon, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Maine and other states.
 
The Final Wake-Up Call
 
What happened in California in 2015 is America’s final wake-up call. Forced vaccination bills like SB 277 that seek to eliminate all non-medical exemptions are eventually going to be introduced in every state and they will not be limited to school aged children. Adults will be targeted, too, as government health officials, industry and medical trade groups advocate for more societal sanctions that include loss of medical care and employment to be applied to those declining to get every federally recommended vaccine.
 
What is at stake? If the state can tag, track down and force us against our will to be injected with biologicals of known and unknown toxicity today, there will be no limit on which individual freedoms the state can take away in the name of the greater good tomorrow.

We Will Not Give Up Our Human Rights for Our Civil Rights

Posted 6/12/2015

by Barbara Loe Fisher
NVIC Co-founder and President
June 9, 2015 – Sacramento, California
 
 
California SB277: Dangerous legislation requiring parents to sacrifice the human right to make medical risk-taking decisions to retain the civil right to education. Learn more at NVIC.org.Mothers and fathers of California, you have come to Sacramento today to participate in our democracy and defend your freedom.
 
You are here because you love your children.
 
And there is no power on earth greater than the love we have for our children.
 
The right of the state to tell us what to do to our bodies and the bodies of our children ends where our right to protect our lives and our children’s lives begins.
 
No liability free doctor inside or outside of government should be given the power to punish us if we choose not to play vaccine roulette with liability free vaccines.
 
We believe every life is important. We will not look the other way while those of us vulnerable to vaccine injury and death are being sacrificed in the name of the greater good.
 
When the State considers one of us to be expendable, then we are all considered expendable.
 
We will not give up our human rights for our civil rights. We will not give up the human right to informed consent to medical risk taking in order to exercise our civil right to an education and medical care and employment.
 
We are the daughters and sons of liberty. And we will defend freedom of thought and speech and religion and conscience in this great country of ours because that is what it means to be an American.

We will come to this state Capitol and every state Capitol again and again to fight for our human and civil rights.
 
At the end of the 20th century, a small group of parents with DPT vaccine injured children launched the vaccine safety and informed consent movement in America. No matter what this legislature or Governor chooses to do, today is the beginning of an historic fight for the people and by the people for vaccine freedom of choice in the 21st century.
 
California, you are leading the way.
 
What do we want?
 
Freedom.
 
Our mission continues.

California Health Committee Majority Votes to Reject Human, Civil and Parental Rights

View NVIC's Barbara Loe Fisher giving testimony
on CA SB277


The thousands of mothers and fathers from small towns and big cities in California, who made the pilgrimage to Sacramento this year to voice opposition to a bill (SB 277) that would eliminate religious and conscientious belief vaccine exemptions, witnessed hardball politics in action on June 9, 2015 when the California Assembly Health Committee majority voted to approve the bill 12 to 6. Hundreds of parents and their children, some of whom had traveled in buses for seven hours to simply come to the microphone and state their name, city and “I am opposed,” were left standing helpless in the halls and overflow rooms of the Capitol building when the Committee Chair ended the five hour hearing without allowing them to testify.
 
Before the hearing was abruptly closed, 70 persons testified in favor of SB 277 while 624 testified against the bill. It was David versus Goliath as the wealthy, politically powerful medical and pharmaceutical industries backed by government moved to crush citizens from all walks of life standing up for their human, civil and parental rights.
 
Bill Blocked From More Hearings
 
After Pan and Allen presented the bill, the opposition was allowed to give 25 minutes of formal testimony. In addition to NVIC President Barbara Loe Fisher, others who testified in opposition were education attorney George Fatheree, parent of a severely vaccine injured son; pediatrician Jay Gordon, M.D.; statistician Melissa Floyd and educator Bianca Amann. Civil rights attorney Allison Folmer with Parental Rights Foundation was scheduled to testify but the 25 minute limit ran out and she was unable to present.
 
No other public hearings are scheduled in Education, Judiciary or Appropriations Assembly committees. Some Health Committee members expressed concern that the bill was being rushed through the Assembly by Senate bill sponsors pediatrician Richard Pan (D-Sacramento) and attorney Ben Allen (D- Santa Monica) without deliberations other relevant Assembly committees.
 
If SB 277 is approved by the Assembly and Governor Brown signs it, California parents will be forced to give their children more than 40 doses of 10 federally recommended vaccines or homeschool unless they can find a doctor to write a medical exemption that doctors deny to 99.99 percent of children under federal guidelines.

California Citizens - Take Action Today
 
NVIC State Advocacy Director Dawn Richardson issued an Action Alert for California citizens immediately after the June 9 hearing on the NVIC Advocacy Portal that electronically connects Portal users with their own Assembly member and Governor Brown. She called on all Californians to immediately contact their Assembly members and Governor Brown.

NEWS BREAKING TODAY:  The Assembly has already read SB 277 twice since June 9 and could vote at any time today or this weekend to send the bill to the Governors desk. Visit and call your Assembly member in the district and Sacramento offices immediately and talk to him or her personally.

Blackmail and the Medical Vaccine Exemption

Vaccine risks for you or your child can range from zero to 100 percent depending upon the genes you were born with; your microbiome DNA; the environment you live in; your age and health at the time of vaccination, and the type and how many vaccines you get. 1 2

Vaccines are not safe or effective for everyone because we are not all the same and we do not all respond the same way to pharmaceutical products like vaccines. 3 4

Our response to infectious diseases and the risk for complications can also vary, depending upon our genes, environment, and age and health at the time of infection. 5 That is why malnourished, vitamin deficient children living in impoverished environments, for example, are at higher risk for complications from gastrointestinal, respiratory and other childhood infections. 6 7 8

Vaccinators Do Not Know If the Odds Will Be in Your Favor

The ends justify the meansThe doctor or nurse giving vaccines to you or your child does not know whether the odds will be in your favor. You may get vaccinated and have no reaction or your immune system and brain function could be severely compromised. 9 10 The scientific literature is clear about that fact and so is Congress and the U.S. Supreme Court, which have declared vaccines to be “unavoidably unsafe” and shielded the pharmaceutical industry from vaccine injury lawsuits. 11 12 13

Since 1988, there have been thousands of children and adults in America who have suffered brain inflammation and other long recognized vaccine reactions and have been awarded $3 billion dollars in vaccine injury compensation. There are thousands more, who have been unable to secure federal compensation for their vaccine injuries. 14 15

Vaccines Recommended and Given in Vacuum of Scientific Knowledge

But doctors and nurses are not taught about the genetic, biological and environmental high risk factors that could make you or your child more vulnerable to experiencing disabling vaccine complications. Vaccines are being recommended and given in a vacuum of knowledge and vaccine policymakers know it. As many Institute of Medicine committees have repeatedly pointed out in published reports spanning a quarter century, there are huge gaps in vaccine safety science. 16 17 18 19 20

Vaccine safety research is not a priority because long ago public health officials made a calculated decision that the lives of those harmed by vaccines are expendable in order to pursue what they consider to be a more important goal: the eradication of a long list of infectious microorganisms through compulsory vaccine use. 21 22 23 When vaccine risks turn out to be 100 percent for you or your child, you are expected to quietly accept that you are unavoidable collateral damage in the war on microorganisms. 24 25  26

Almost No Medical Condition Qualifies for Medical Vaccine Exemption

This cruel utilitarian rationale, also known as “the ends justifies the means,” has been used by public health officials and medical trade groups to narrow the medical vaccine exemption so that, today, almost no medical condition qualifies as an “official” reason (contraindication) for a doctor to grant someone a medical exemption to vaccination. 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 At the same time, there are no good biological mechanism studies or large clinical trials validating the safety of severely restricting the medical vaccine exemption. But, then, there is no independent oversight on the quality and quantity of the science used to make vaccine policies and laws in the U.S. either. 36 37 38

Basically, the Centers for Disease Control now tells doctors that a medical vaccine exemption should only be granted if you are one of the estimated 320,000 children and adults annually receiving chemotherapy; 39 40 or one of the estimated 47,000 Americans who have had a recent organ or blood cell transplant; 41 42 or your child is one of the 40 to 100 children born every year with Severe Combined Immune Deficiency, known as SCID. 43

Once you are done with chemo, no medical vaccine exemption for you. Once you have recovered from your organ or blood cell transplant, no medical vaccine exemption for you. 44 And if you are immunosuppressed but don’t have SCID, the rarest and most severe of all immunodeficiency disorders, in most cases no medical exemption for you. 45

No Medical Exemption for Immune and Brain Disorders, Genetic Susceptibility 

If you or your child are already suffering with autoimmune or brain disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, inflammatory bowel syndrome, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy or an immunosuppressive disease like HIV, no medical vaccine exemption for you. 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55

If you or your child have a family history of severe allergies, vaccine reactions, seizures, sudden infant death syndrome or serious autoimmune and neurological disorders, no medical vaccine exemption for you. 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64

No Medical Exemption for Sickness, Many Previous Vaccine Reactions

If you or your child are sick at the time of vaccination with a fever or on antibiotics, no medical vaccine exemption for you.  65
No Medical Exemption for Pregnancy, Siblings of Vaccine Injured, Premature InfantsIf, after vaccination, you or your child ran a 105-degree fever, collapsed or had seizures and symptoms of brain inflammation followed by serious health deterioration and you are still chronically ill but a doctor disagrees that your continuing health problems were caused by vaccination, no medical vaccine exemption for you.  66 67

No Medical Exemption for Pregnancy, Siblings of Vaccine Injured, Premature Infants

If you are a pregnant health care worker and do not want to get a flu shot while you are pregnant because you do not want to risk a miscarriage, no medical vaccine exemption for you. 68 69

If your child was injured or died after vaccination and you want to protect your other children from vaccine injury, no medical vaccine exemption for your children. 70 71

If your baby was born prematurely and is low weight and struggling to survive, no medical vaccine exemption for your infant. 72 73 74

Obey Liability Free Doctors’ Vaccine Orders Or Be Punished

For all practical purposes, the Centers for Disease Control and medical trade organizations now direct pediatricians and other vaccinators to deny the medical vaccine exemption to 99.99 percent of Americans. Although nobody can predict whether the odds will be in your favor, you are expected to obey doctors’ orders and get and give your children every government recommended vaccine – no exceptions and no questions asked - or be subjected to threats, coercion, discrimination and denial of medical care, education, and employment. 75

Like drug companies selling vaccines, doctors giving vaccines are protected from vaccine injury lawsuits. If a doctor vaccinates you or your child against your will and you suffer a catastrophic vaccine reaction, you cannot seek justice in a civil court of law in front of a jury of your peers. 76 Without accountability or liability, there is strong incentive for vaccinators to implement government vaccine policy and deny vaccine harm - but little incentive to prevent vaccine harm.

Eliminating Non-Medical Exemptions to Blackmail Americans

Now public health and medical trade groups are pressuring legislators to pass laws that would not only eliminate non-medical religious and conscientious belief vaccine exemptions for children to attend school, 77 but also would require children to get every one of the 69 doses of 16 federally recommended vaccines - unless a parent can get a medical vaccine exemption from a doctor. 78 This vaccine dragnet, which is already being applied to health care workers, is also pulling in childcare workers and teachers as proposed new vaccine laws threaten them with loss of employment if they cannot find a doctor to write a medical vaccine exemption. 79 80 81 82

Zealously pursuing a 99.99 percent vaccination rate and using very small groups of immune compromised individuals as an excuse to eliminate all non-medical vaccine exemptions, liability free doctors want permission from lawmakers to blackmail virtually every American into playing vaccine roulette. And they want to do this in the absence of sound vaccine safety science, even for those potentially at higher risk for suffering vaccine harm. 

Philosopher and human rights advocate Elie Wiesel has said “When you take an idea or a concept and turn it into an abstraction, that opens the way to take human beings and turn them, also, into abstractions. When human beings become abstractions, what is left?” 83

Cruel and Inhuman to Last Degree

Act Now to Protect Bodily Integrity and Free Exercise of ConscienceIn 1905, when the U.S. Supreme Court in Jacobsen v. Massachusetts affirmed the right of states to mandate smallpox vaccination, the Court warned legislatures that it was not condoning vaccination of persons for whom the medical procedure would be “cruel and inhuman to the last degree,” adding that “all laws should receive a sensible construction.” 84

The inalienable right to autonomy and free exercise of conscience to protect bodily integrity trumps the right of government to use our bodies for any purpose, which is why informed consent to vaccine risk taking and flexible medical, religious and conscientious belief vaccine exemptions must remain a legal right in America. 85

Act Now to Protect Bodily Integrity and Free Exercise of Conscience

If you want the legal right to freely exercise conscience and protect your bodily integrity or that of your child when it comes to vaccine risk-taking, if you do not want to wake up one day and be forced to play vaccine roulette when you have good reason to conclude that you or your child are at high risk for suffering vaccine harm, you need to act now. You can be sure that the odds definitely will not be in your favor when it comes to finding a doctor to grant you a medical vaccine exemption.

Sign up for the NVIC Advocacy Portal today and join the thousands of intelligent, concerned and courageous Americans standing up and speaking out in states across this country in defense of the human right to informed consent to medical risk taking. 86 87 88 89 90 91 92 93 94 95 96 97 98

Please take action now.

It’s your health. Your family. Your choice.

The Vaccine Culture War in America: Are You Ready?

More than 1.2 million people in the United States are infected with HIV 1 but government officials do not ban HIV infected children and adults from attending school, receiving medical care, being employed, or otherwise participating in society. In fact, there are anti-discrimination laws that guarantee civil rights protections for Americans infected with HIV or living with AIDS. 2

No Discrimination or Societal Sanctions for Infected Citizens

In 2012, public health officials reported that about two million people in America are infected with chlamydia, tuberculosis, syphilis and gonorrhea, 3 and they estimate another three million people are infected with hepatitis C. 4 Like those with HIV or AIDS, these citizens are not targeted for discrimination and blocked from getting a public education, being employed or moving freely in society.

Live Polio Vaccinated Children Could Still Attend School

Between 1963 and 1999, doctors gave live oral polio vaccine to millions of healthy American children, who became infected with vaccine strain polioviruses they shed in their body fluids and transmitted, sometimes causing other children and adults to contract vaccine strain polio paralysis and die. 5  6 Those with compromised immune systems were at special risk for getting vaccine strain polio and shedding vaccine strain poliovirus for longer periods of time than healthy persons. Yet, children recently given live oral polio vaccine were not excluded from attending school.

Calls for Societal Sanctions After Measles Diagnosed at Disneyland

But in 2015 after a handful of measles cases were identified at Disneyland, suddenly Americans are being asked to surrender civil liberties. We are being asked to discriminate against and condone extreme societal sanctions against fellow citizens, 7 including removing religious and conscientious belief vaccine exemptions from state laws 8 9 so children cannot attend school without 49 doses of 14 federally recommended vaccines by age six and 20 more vaccinations by age 18. 10
How did a handful of measles cases at Disneyland turn into a full-scale assault on civil and human rights in America?

12 States Introduce Bills to Eliminate Non-Medical Vaccine Exemptions

Why have politicians in 12 states already filed legislation to eliminate non-medical vaccine exemptions, leaving only a very narrow medical exemption that most people cannot get? 11 12
With 93 percent of pediatricians reporting that parents don’t trust the safety of the government recommended child vaccine schedule, 13 why are many of them refusing to provide medical care to children if they have not gotten every dose of every federally recommended vaccine – no exceptions and no questions asked? 14 15 16

Censorship of Speech, Shaming, Imprisonment, MD Licenses Revoked?

Why are editorials calling for censorship of speech 17 18 and for parents with unvaccinated children to be hunted down and publicly identified, 19 sued, 20 21 criminally prosecuted and imprisoned, 22 and for doctors who criticize vaccine safety to have their medical licenses revoked? 23
What is happening right now in America is not about the the measles or public health.

Disneyland “Patient Zero” Never Found – Assumptions Made Anyway

It all started in January 2015 after 320 million Americans 24 had just finished ringing in the New Year and California health officials announced that nine visitors to Disneyland were infected with measles. 25 Two weeks later, the total number of measles cases was 51 but no public health doctor in the country could find “patient zero.” 26 That didn’t stop newspapers from proclaiming that a single “unvaccinated” person with measles spoiled the Magic Kingdom and that measles is invading America because of “a decline in parents having their kids vaccinated.” 27 28

Measles Immunity Wanes, High MMR Vaccination Rate in U.S.

It did not matter that the science shows measles vaccine immunity is not lifelong and wanes, 29 30 31 32 just like pertussis vaccine immunity is temporary and wanes, 33 34 35 or that it is illogical to put all the blame for measles at Disneyland on 1.8% of children attending school with vaccine exemptions 36 37 when 95% of children entering kindergarten have gotten two MMR shots 38 39 and only 1% of children under age three are unvaccinated. 40 With a grand total of 170 measles cases reported in 17 states by March 2015, compared to 644 cases reported in 27 states last year, 41 and with 42% of the California-related cases documented to be in unvaccinated persons, while 13% of cases were vaccinated, 42 there is no justification for gutting vaccine exemptions in state public health laws.

Witch Hunt Led By Doctors Against Families, Dissenting Doctors

Rational thinking has been the first casualty in this 21st century equivalent of a 17th century witch hunt 43 led by defensive doctors in government, industry, academia and media, who are fed up with parents asking them questions about vaccine risks and failures they can’t answer. 44 45 46 47  Assisted by communication conglomerates 48 and Astroturfers, 49 50 51 52 53 they piously wave the science flag and call parents “anti-social” if they don’t vaccinate 54 but completely ignore parents with vaccine injured children talking about how their vaccinated children are never healthy anymore. 55 Some of the most vicious attacks have been on families consciously choosing to stay healthy a different way 56 57 and on doctors caring for families whose children are unvaccinated or receive fewer vaccines on an altered vaccine schedule. 58 59

The Cultural War on Freedom, Values & Beliefs

After headlines like “What would Jesus do about measles?” 60 and “God wants you to vaccinate your children” 61 marked a new low in American journalism, it became clear that the so-called “vaccine war” 62 63 is really a culture war 64 on freedoms, values and beliefs that have long defined who we are as a nation. 65 66 67 How it is fought and where it ends will determine the kind of nation America will become in the 21st century.

$100 Billion Vaccine Market in 2025 Featuring Many New Vaccines

The $30 billion global vaccine market today will be worth a projected $100 billion or more in ten years.  68 A lucrative public-private business partnership has been forged between government and the pharmaceutical industry 69 70 71 72 73 74 with your tax dollars to develop hundreds of new vaccines. 75
Drug companies completely shielded from product liability because Congress and the U.S. Supreme Court have declared vaccines to be “unavoidably unsafe,” 76 77 are rushing to licensure genetically engineered vaccines for syphilis, 78 gonorrhea, 79 herpes,80 HIV/AIDS, 81 tuberculosis, 82 chlamydia, 83 hepatitis C, 84 e-coli, 85 cytomegalovirus, 86 ebola, 87 88 salmonella, 89 norovirus, 90 adenovirus, 91 enterovirus, 92 asthma, 93 diabetes, 94 obesity, 95 high blood pressure, 96 anti-smoking, 97 anti-cocaine 98 and anti-heroin 99 use, and many more that Pharma and government will want many  adults, as well as children, to buy and use.

Adult Immunization Plan Targets Women, Employees, Faith Groups

The new National Adult Immunization Plan aggressively targets pregnant women, 100 employers and their employees, 101 faith based groups 102and other adults for increased vaccine use. 103  104 Health care workers are already being fired if they do not get an annual flu shot, 105 a vaccine that works less than half the time and was completely ineffective this year. 106 107
The next profession on the firing line is the teaching profession. 108 109 A doctor turned politician in Vermont is pushing a bill to require teachers and everyone working in a school to prove they have gotten government recommended vaccines or be re-vaccinated. 110
Will your profession be next on that list?

Will You Be Prevented From Moving Freely in Society & Punished?

Will laws be passed to not only deny you a public education but prevent you from obtaining health insurance; entering a doctor’s office, hospital or retirement home; boarding a bus, plane or train; buying a ticket for a movie or football game; shopping in a store, getting a driver’s license, filing your taxes or otherwise participating in and moving freely in society unless you show proof you have gotten every government recommended vaccine?
Will your healthy unvaccinated children be taken from you 111 and will you be fined and thrown in prison? 112 113
Will public health officials with police power knock on your door one day and take you to a quarantine camp or forcibly administer vaccines to you and your children without your voluntary informed consent?

If Non-Medical Vaccine Exemptions Removed, You Will Have No Choice

Even if you and your children have willingly received every government recommended vaccine today, if non-medical exemptions are removed from U.S. vaccine laws, you will have no choice if you decide you don’t want to use every new liability-free vaccine that government recommends tomorrow.
This vaccine culture war is about a lot more than vaccination.
Because if the State can tag, track down and force you against your will to be injected with biologicals of known and unknown toxicity today, then there will be no limit on which other freedoms the State can take away in the name of the greater good tomorrow.

What You Can Do If You Are Ready to Take Action

Are you ready to fight for your freedom? If you are, here is what you can do:
GET INVOLVED. Participate in our democracy. Become an active user of the free online vaccine choice advocacy network at NVICAdvocacy.org and work with other people in your state to take action. You will receive email Action Alerts and be put in direct electronic contact with your own legislators so you can call or email them and show up to testify at legislative hearings. Invite your friends and family to do the same.
WITNESS.  If you experienced vaccine reactions and are now chronically ill or disabled, you can share your experience with others. You are not alone.
Vaccine reactions and injuries are not as rare as doctors want to admit to themselves or to patients and parents. 114 Today, everybody knows somebody who was healthy, got vaccinated and was never healthy again.

Talk About What Happened to Your Child After Vaccination

If you are a parent and watched your child scream for hours or collapse, twitch and jerk or regress physically, mentally and emotionally and become a totally different child in the days and weeks after vaccination, 115 116 117 118 119 120 you have witnessed a serious event that you can talk about with other people, including legislators representing you in your state Capitol and in Congress.
If your child was revaccinated and you observed the same symptoms or your child’s health got worse, it is compelling scientific evidence of a causal relationship between vaccination and what happened to your child. In scientific studies, this is called challenge/re-challenge 121 and what you saw is called clinical observation, 122 even though when parents do the observing most doctors dismiss what happened as “anecdotal” 123 evidence or a “coincidence” 124 125 that has no value at all.

Your Child’s Life Has Value, Don’t Let Anyone Bully and Shame You

What you witnessed happen to your child after vaccination does have value because your child’s life has value. Don’t let a doctor or anyone else bully and shame you into being afraid to talk about what you saw happen after vaccination, especially if your child is now chronically ill or disabled and has been diagnosed with learning disabilities; ADHD; epilepsy; autoimmunity; autism or communication, developmental or disruptive behavior disorders; asthma, allergy or other brain and immune system dysfunction. 126
Witnessing about what happened after vaccination is a way to help others understand that every life has value, and no person’s life should be considered expendable, and that we must never forget that universal truth.
REPORT. It is estimated thatonly between 1 and 10 percent of serious vaccine-associated reactions, hospitalizations, injuries and deaths are ever reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), 127 128 even though federal law requires all vaccine providers to make reports. If your doctor refuses to file a vaccine reaction report, you can do it yourself. Go to NVIC.org and learn how.

NVIC Vaccine Reaction Registry; Freedom Wall; Memorial; Failure Wall

If you or your child were bullied or threatened with loss of employment, medical care, health insurance, federal food or housing assistance, the right to attend school or anything else because of your vaccination status, you can make a report to your state and federal legislators. Register for the NVIC Advocacy Portal today to be put into direct electronic contact with them.
On NVIC.org, you can also report a vaccine reaction to NVIC’s Vaccine Reaction Registry and share your experiences with others by posting a vaccine harassment report on the Cry for Vaccine Freedom Wall or creating a page on the Memorial for Vaccine Victims or reporting a vaccine failure on the Vaccine Failure Wall.

Now, I am going to review five myths and facts that will help you understand what the vaccine culture war is really about:

VACCINE CULTURE WAR MYTH NUMBER 1:
Most medical doctors say that vaccines do not cause
 Injury or death, so it must be true
 
Doctors who say vaccines are safe for everyone and do not cause injury and death are either uninformed, in denial or lying. Since the first vaccine for smallpox, doctors have known and it has been well documented that brain inflammation, permanent brain damage and death have always been among most serious complications of vaccination. 129 130

Just like any other pharmaceutical product, vaccines carry a risk of injury or death. These risks can be greater for some people with genetic, biological and environmental risk factors that doctors do not understand or cannot predict. 131

Congress, U.S. Supreme Court Say Vaccines Are “Unavoidably Unsafe”

Knowing this, Congress in 1986 132 and the U.S. Supreme Court in 2011 133 declared vaccines to be “unavoidably unsafe” and shielded drug companies from all product liability. 134 If you or your child are injured or die after vaccination, you cannot hold the drug company that makes and profits from the vaccine or anyone who regulates, promotes, administers or mandates the vaccine accountable in a civil court of law in front of a jury of your peers.

Liability for Seat Belt Manufacturers - NOT for Vaccine Manufacturers

Seat belt manufacturers have product liability 135 but vaccine manufacturers do not. Doctors can be sued for malpractice except when they administer vaccinations that injure or kill a person.
Vaccines are the only product government mandates and completely indemnifies.

The federal government has paid $3 billion dollars in compensation to victims of vaccine injury and death under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. 136

VACCINE CULTURE WAR MYTH NUMBER 2:
People who question vaccine safety are ignorant and
 do not understand the science.
 
Just the opposite is true. Most people who question vaccine safety are very intelligent and understand the difference between good science and bad science. 137 138 139
Studies reveal that mothers and fathers with college or post-graduate degrees are the ones who most often question the safety of vaccines. 140 141 142 They are wondering whether government policy directing pediatricians to give children three times as many vaccinations as children got 30 years ago 143 is safe, effective and necessary.

Big Knowledge Gaps in Vaccine Safety Science

If growing concerns among parents about vaccination was simply due to ignorance, two decades of reports published by the Institute of Medicine would not have found large knowledge gaps in vaccine safety science. 144 For example, there are fewer than 40 published studies evaluating the safety of the federally recommended child vaccine schedule for infants and children under age six. 145

VACCINE CULTURE WAR MYTH NUMBER 3:
People who do not vaccinate are selfish and
don’t care about the public health
 
While we are all born equal with equal rights under the law, we are not born all the same. Each one of us is born with different genes and a unique microbiome  influenced by epigenetics 146 that affects how we respond to diseases 147 148 and pharmaceutical products like vaccines. 149 150

Many Americans no longer vaccinate today because the risks of vaccination turned out to be 100 percent for them, their children or other family members. They have good reason to believe that the genes they were born with make them more susceptible to vaccine harm. 151 152 153 154 155

Vaccine Vulnerable Families Can’t Find Doctors to Write Medical Exemptions

But often these former vaccinators cannot find a doctor to write a medical exemption because almost no health condition qualifies for a medical exemption to vaccination anymore. 156 Unless you are dying of cancer and on chemotherapy, have had a recent organ transplant or have the most severe combined immune deficiency, most doctors will not grant you a medical vaccine exemption. 157
Non-medical vaccine exemptions are the only way vaccine vulnerable families  can protect their lives.

Some Healthy Americans Choosing Different Path to Health

Some Americans use fewer vaccines or remain unvaccinated because they have chosen a different path to health. They focus on boosting immune function with good nutrition, exercise, avoiding environmental toxins and using holistic health alternatives that do not rely on heavy use of pharmaceutical products. 158 159 160 161 They are contributing significantly to the public health because they and their children are very healthy.

It is not selfish to want to make informed choices about how to stay healthy. It is not selfish to protect yourself and your children from harm, especially if you believe your family is more susceptible to vaccine injury. If everyone protects their own health and the health of their children, the public health will be protected.

VACCINE CULTURE WAR MYTH NUMBER 4:
Science trumps religious beliefs so
religious exemptions to vaccination should be eliminated
 
The attack on Americans with religious or spiritual beliefs is central to the political agenda driving this cultural war. 162 163 164 Fellow citizens, who do not believe there is a God, 165 166 167 168 are demanding that those who have faith in God be required to place the same faith in science and doctors. 169

There is a big difference between fallible human beings and God, but some doctors do not understand this difference.

Vaccine Developer Ridicules Religious Belief, Quotes Scripture

One prominent pediatrician vaccine developer, 170 who insists that babies can safely be given 10,000 vaccines on the same day, 171 has publicly ridiculed religious beliefs 172 173 174 but now is hypocritically quoting holy scripture 175 and comparing Disneyland to the “Garden of Eden.” 176 Invoking the name of Jesus, he is trying to shame Christian parents refusing to obey his orders to give their children every government recommended vaccine, including the one he created 177 that has made him a very rich man. 178 179 180

Mothers Responsible for the Health of Their Children

I remember many years ago when a public health doctor promoting the “No Shots, No School” campaign in America suggested I was “selfish” for declining to give my two youngest children pertussis vaccine even though my oldest son was DPT vaccine injured. Implicit was the suggestion that I had no right to protect my own children’s health if it conflicted with what doctors believe protects the public health.

I looked him straight in the eyes and said “Doctor, whether or not I put my child’s life on the line for you and your vaccine is between me and my God and not between me and you.”

As mothers, we carry our babies inside us for nine months, we give birth, we love them more than we thought we could ever love anyone and we nurture them throughout childhood so they can grow up to be productive adult members of society. We are responsible for their health and we are the ones who care for them when they become sick and unable to care for themselves for any reason, and we are the ones who weep at their graves if they die before we do.

Do Not Let Anyone Violate Your Religious, Conscientious Beliefs

You do not have to belong to an organized religion or state recognized church to hold sincere religious or spiritual beliefs about health and vaccination. 181  182 183   As a mother or father, you have the God given natural right to use the brain and gut instincts God gave you to consider the evidence, examine your conscience, pray for guidance and exercise the human right to informed consent to medical risk-taking on behalf of your minor child. Do not let a doctor, government employee or politician take that God given right away from you.

It is a violation of religious freedom to force vaccination when you hold religious or spiritual beliefs opposing use of one or more vaccines and it is a violation of the human spirit to force you to disobey the certain judgment of your conscience.

VACCINE CULTURE WAR MYTH NUMBER 5: 
It is ethical for government to sacrifice the few for the many.
 
Based on hedonism 184 and a mathematical equation, this philosophy is called utilitarianism 185186and comes from the word “utility.” 187 The utilitarian rationale was created as a guide for legislators making public policy by an 18th century British social reformer Jeremy Bentham, 188 189 whose mummified head is being preserved by the University College London, where a wax version is on public display. 190 In 1905, the U.S. Supreme Court used Bentham’s utilitarian rationale to rule in Jacobsen v. Massachusetts that state legislatures had the power to enact mandatory smallpox vaccination laws. 191

American Eugenicists, U.S. Supreme Court Embraces Utilitarianism

American eugenicists and social reformers embraced utilitarianism in the early 20th century. 192 193 
They argued that government has the legal right to discriminate against a minority of citizens judged to be genetically defective or a threat to the health and welfare of society.  In 1923, U.S. Supreme Court justice Oliver Wendall Holmes 194 gave the green light to the state of Virginia to forcibly sterilize a young woman, Carrie Buck, because doctors judged her to be mentally retarded just like her daughter and mother.

Coldly, Holmes proclaimed: “three generations of imbeciles are enough” and said “The principle that sustains compulsory vaccination is broad enough to cover cutting the fallopian tubes.” 195
It turns out Carrie Buck was not mentally retarded and neither was her daughter or mother. 196

Utilitarianism Pseudo-Ethic In Its Most Extreme Form

Doctors and public health officials in the Third Reich implemented utilitarianism in its most extreme form to justify conducting horrific scientific experiments on captive people. 197 198 The Nuremberg Tribunal justices presiding over The Doctors Trial after World War II declared utilitarianism to be a pseudo ethic. They issued the Nuremberg Code outlining the informed consent principle, 199 200 which has guided research on humans and the ethical practice of medicine ever since. 201 202 203

Forced Vaccination Laws Sacrifice the Genetically Vulnerable

The Institute of Medicine has confirmed that some individuals have known and unknown genetic risk factors that make them more susceptible to vaccine injury and death. 204 This means forced vaccination laws that fail to include flexible medical and non-medical exemptions become a utilitarian, de facto selection of the genetically vulnerable for sacrifice. 205

Is America really going to walk down that road? Are we going to punish citizens for the genes they were born with in the name of the public health?

Are we going to slide down the slippery slope of utilitarianism and ignore the profound ethical and legal questions that remain: Who gets to decide what protects the public health? Which individuals should be sacrificed? And how many is too many?

Industry & Government Fail to Fund Good Vaccine Safety Science 

Industry 206 and government have refused to fund good science to better understand the biological mechanisms for vaccine injury and death, and whether there are important health differences between vaccinated and unvaccinated people, 207 and whether increased vaccine use during the past 30 years is a major co-factor in the unexplained chronic disease and disability epidemic plaguing America.

With 1 child in 6 diagnosed with learning disabilities, 208 1 in 9 with asthma, 209 210 1 in 50 with autism 211 and 1 in 400 with diabetes 212 213 and millions of Americans suffering with cancer and other immune and brain disorders that cost our nation $3 trillion dollars a year to treat,214  215 216 217 isn’t it time for government to explain to taxpayers exactly why vaccine safety science should be left off our nation’s scientific research agenda?

Perhaps they already know they don’t have to do that because they are getting laws passed to hunt down and vaccinate every last child and adult in America. Eliminating non-medical vaccine exemptions will guarantee that scientific evaluation of health outcome differences between vaccinated and unvaccinated people in America will never be done.

The Future Is In Our Hands

The future of health and freedom in America is in our hands. It is in your hands.
It’s your health. Your family. Your choice.
