NY Rally & Grassroots Action Defending Vaccine Choice

by Barbara Loe Fisher

As government-employed doctors and attorneys, along with drug company lobbyists, move to persuade legislators to deny citizens the legal right to make voluntary vaccine decisions, families in different states are working hard to raise public awareness about the need to protect the legal right to make informed, voluntary decisions about vaccination. Tomorrow, Tuesday, June 2 at 10:30 a.m., parents will rally at the Legislative Office Building in Albany, New York to protest proposed new vaccine mandates and support legislation protecting religious exemption and widening medical exemption. They are voicing opposition to a bill that would mandate HPV (Gardasil) vaccine for sixth graders and one that would allow state-designated vaccine providers to give children hepatitis B shots without the informed consent of their parents.

New York Rally for Vaccine Choice

Parent groups in New York have been working since the 1980's and 90's to protect vaccine exemptions. A New York high court ruled in 1987 that parents do not have to belong to an organized church or religion to receive a religious exemption to vaccination. However, that has not prevented New York state-appointed attorneys from grilling parents about their religious beliefs for the purpose of denying the religious exemption.

Washington, D.C. Parents Challenge Gardasil Use Law

In Washington, D.C., members of the Parents and Citizens Committee to Stop Medical Experimentation in D.C. , a citizen health action group founded in 2007, testified in an April 9 D.C. City Council meeting about the HPV vaccine mandate requiring sixth grade girls to get three doses of Gardasil vaccine. Although there is currently an opt-out provision in the law, parents and health advocates are protesting the lack of vaccine risk information given to girls and parents prior to vaccination and the lack of public awareness that girls can opt-out of the HPV vaccine mandate.

New Jersey Parents for Conscientious Belief Exemption

In neighboring New Jersey, parent groups have been working since the 1980's and 90's on legislation to protect the freedom to make voluntary vaccine decisions. For the past decade, the citizen action group, New Jersey Alliance for Information Choice in Vaccination Choice (NJAICV) has been educating legislators about the need to enact a conscientious belief exemption bill. A newly formed coalition of organizations supporting vaccine choice in New Jersey has added support to the citizen-led vaccine education campaigns in a state which mandates more vaccinations for children than any other state (35 doses of 13 vaccines).

West Virginia Parents in Court to Protect Vaccine Injured Child's Life

Parents living in West Viginia and Mississippi, the two states which allow only a medical exemption written by an M.D. or D.O., continue to suffer discrimination in their struggle to obtain the legal right to file vaccine exemptions for sincerely held religious, conscientious or philosophical beliefs. A citizen action group, West Virginians for Vaccination Exemption, has been working for 10 years to obtain a religious and/or conscientious belief exemption to vaccination. Parents in that state are now going to court to defend their religious beliefs regarding vaccination, with one mother trying to protect her daughter, who regressed into autism after vaccination, from being forced to get more vaccines that could further damage her brain and immune system.

Mississippi Creates Anti-Discrimination Petition

In Mississippi, a recently formed parent support network, the Mississippi Vaccine Information Center, is working on legislation to end discrimination against unvaccinated and partially vaccinated children, whose parents are denied the right to non-medical vaccine exemptions in that state. The group has created a petition that endorses informed consent to vaccination and the inclusion of a religious and philosophical exemption in Mississippi state vaccine laws.

Vaccine Laws Should Protect At-Risk Populations

Doctors working with drug company reps are aggressively lobbying elected officials to pass laws forcing one-size-fits-all vaccine mandates on all children - even those who may be biologically at higher risk than others for suffering vaccine-induced brain and immune system dysfunction. Refusing to acknowledge biodiversity, doctors are clinging to the illogical and unscientific "coincidence" defense for the sole purpose of remaining in denial about vaccine risks. They are acting without conscience when they discriminate against and fail to protect individual children, particularly the already-vaccine injured, from further harm. Citizen activists working in states to insure that vaccine laws include respect for the informed consent principle are protecting both individual and public health.

NVIC's Oct. 2-4 Conference To Focus on Vaccine Choice

Speakers defending the human right to informed consent to vaccination will be featured at the Fourth International Public Conference on Vaccination sponsored by the National Vaccine Information Center October 2-4, 2009 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel (near Dulles Airport) in the Washington, D.C. area.

Scientists, pediatricians, bioethicists, legal experts, journalists and consumer advocates will be discussing the science, policy, law, and ethics of vaccination and the conference will feature advocacy training sessions to help attendees educate their legislators about vaccination.

The conference forum is being created for families and health care providers who want to defend vaccine freedom of choice and work in their communities to protect vaccine exemptions. For more information and to register for best rates before June 30, click here.

Here's a novel concept. 'At Risk Populations'

These aren't your grand daddy's vaccines anymore, or vaccine schedules for that matter. Today's vaccines and their 'over the top' big money shedules put ALL of the population AT RISK.

The establishment LIES and states todays vaccines are safer than yesteryear's vaccine. I guess taking the cancer virus, SV 40, out of the polio vaccine (they long denied was in there.) is 'proof' vaccines are NOW safer.

Check the DISCLAIMER in the 'Physicians Desk Reference' NO VACCINE IS TESTED FOR CARCINOGENS. So ANYONE getting a shot RUNS THE RISK OF GETTING CANCER sometime in ones life after the shot.

Gardasil has not only been a disaster to women and girls but the manufacture ADMITS it even doesn't work! WHY? Oh. because the FDA ADMITTED HPV DOESN'T EVEN CAUSE CANCER when they approved the drug!


You people going to this rally need to make the public and politicians fully aware of this scam.

The shot schedules need to be made an issue as well. 60 shots and rising is mad to put it mildly and the autoimmune response from this vaccine schedule ALSO PUT THE ENTIRE POPULATION AT RISK.

A doctors court testimony...

Other 'threats' to the general population by vaccines include...

Genetically altered RNA / DNA strains. Where are the long term studies?

Heavy Metal poisoning. Is everyone at risk?

Mixing all these viruses, heavy metals, chemicals, RNA /DNA, together into one huge cocktail in the bodies of little ones especially. Was the human body really disigned to have all of this injected into our blood stream. Again, where are the LONG TERM studies?

Autoimmune response to all this garbage in the body. The more clinical studies that surface the less it's looking good for vaccines


There are far too many unanswered questions concerning 'todays' vaccines' than any 'real' answers we seem to be getting from the nice people who are chasing us with needles and syringes.

Now here is another novel concept...
How about the right of the individual to fight virus in the matter THEY chose to do so. It's worked so far.

MMR jab should be compulsory.


Yes, the totally flipped out are at it again. Where else but of course none other than one of the kingpin countries that sponsor big Pharma, the United Kingdom.

Someone needs to remind the so-called health expert, Sir Sandy Macara, that measles and mumps were virtually wiped out in GB BEFORE THE VACCINE was created when your war ally U.S.A. rebuilt your bombed out infrastructure.

So before you go and 'terrorize' the British citizens into pumping garbage in their children's veins speak in FACTS. Yes, it was infrastructure NOT your damn vaccines that wiped out measles and mumps.

Rubella (German measles) WAS relatively harmless in less temperate zones such as G.B. and what 'experts' like Sir Sandy Macara either won't tell the public or doesn't even know is that BEFORE the rubella vaccine programs it was extremely rare adults would ever get rubella.

Because the general publics gets high doses of SCARE or TERROR regarding these diseases and little FACTS the public doesn't even know scientists have long asked... "what good has the rubella vaccine really done?" ...and why is this? First of all rubella is TYPICALLY a mild, often even subclinical disease. So, one should ask Sir Sandy Macara.. why make the jab mandatory? Secondly, pregnant women who get a rubella vaccine more often than not, come down with congenital rubella syndrome which CAN develop into a serious situation.

Here's the bomb shell FACT on the rubella vaccine 'experts' like Sir Sandy Macara do NOT want the public to know. Unfortunately rubella vaccine immunity appears to wane over time. On the other hand, natural immunity to rubella is thought to generally be lifelong. This FACT is key to many of the MYTHS of many vaccines.

Eye opening article for those who bought into the discrediting 'smear' campaign of Dr. Wakefield.

"It is committing professional suicide to be anti-vaccine!!!"

Does the name Bernice Eddy ring ANY bells here?


One note:
There is NO doctor, newspaper, broadcast television company bold enough to take on discrediting Dr. Blaylock and his work on vaccine dangers and Autism. (Just to name ONE problem with vaccines he has uncovered.) Dr. Paul Offit took Dr. Blaylock's 'public challenge to a FAIR public debate on Autism and vaccines. However later, like the coward Offit truly is, ran and hid. The powers that be don't dare to try and shed ANY light on Dr. Blaylock's work on vaccine dangers.

Dr Wakefield wasn't smeared. He is barely a doctor. He conducted "research" that you can barely describe as science.

When someone can provide me solid research, we'll have a real discussion.

No one will see this though, since comments are moderated and the blog author, like most anti-vaccine freaks is afraid of someone who speaks science, not their "truth".

More Gardasil bad press and maiming.


I don't know how these ya-hoos can come on your blog and make claims that those of us trying to warn the public on vaccine dangers don't have any facts. When that's ALL WE DO!!! Present facts with links to read or video to watch for themselves.

If the mainstream Wall St. media is telling you ALL the facts how can Katie Couric get away with lying by saying Gardasil prevents cervical cancer when IT'S NEVER BEEN PROVEN TO DO SO!? How can she get away with saying that? Because the very next words spoken after Couric is the reporter saying... "THE HOPE is that Gardasil will prevent cervical cancer."

The other BIG lie that CBS is SELLING YOU is that there have been no deaths via Gardasil.

What are these people smoking???
How can CBS get away WITH flat out deceiving the public?

CBS uses the vaccine manufacture MERCK as their 'TRUSTED' source when THEY claim no death's via Gardasil.

If you want to know just how big of a lie that is just do a 'Yahoo' search... Gardasil + deaths and over a million hits come up and what's even more disturbing is deaths occurred while MERCK was testing the vaccine!!!!!!

As usual MERCK denied the vaccine had anything to do with the deaths. Claiming four of the deaths where "TRAUMA" in origin. (pg 73 Report to FDA) Nice having total control of all and any evidence that would suggest otherwise.

After documenting what happens to these girls after taking the vaccine death by "trauma" via Gardasil is extremely plausible!

The Problem is not even in the argument as to the danger of the vaccine. It's obviously dangerous. The biggest issue with ALL vaccines is the one constant. The one constant is all the lying and deceiving by both big pharma and their partners in crime in the mainstream media.

They simply can NOT be trusted.

John H said...

Is being wrong your way of life or simply your middle name?

You're obviously wrong about the moderation on Barbara's blog.

You sure do make a lot of 'claims'. Funny, I don't see YOU putting forth ANY evidence to back your 'claims' up.

I didn't know universities gave degree's in 'barely a doctor'.

Look, we really don't need your favorite whipping boy, Dr. Wakefield, to know mercury (Vitamin M to you I suppose) should NEVER be injected into the veins of ANYONE let alone babies and children. Even with my kind-of-sort-of background in chemistry I can tell you it's been known for a long, long time that ALL heavy metals, mercury included, devastate proteins in the host's cells. That's just for starters.

If YOU want to discuss 'REAL FACTS' Medic3 of vaccine heavy metal toxicity, DR Blaylock will take that offer of yours in a 'public debate'.

I suppose DR. Blaylock, a world renowned neurosurgeon, isn't doctored enough for you. DR Blaylock is a world renowned expert in the neurology of the human body. He not only is recognized as a great neurosurgeon (world wide) but has actually invented and patented neural procedures DR Blaylook is such the credited expert that Dr Offit ran and hid from DR. Blaylock's offer to debate in public Dr. Offit and his 'QUACK' claim that a child can handle over a 100,000 vaccines.

So my challenge to you Medic3, is to put your money where your mouth is and challenge Dr. Blaylock publicly, and let the public decide who is telling the truth.

Oh, and by the way, 'us FREAKS' don't want to deprive YOUR right to consume by injection, Vitamin M. Mercury by any other name. We simply don't want it forced on us.

So, by all means, have a couple shots of it on us!

I have been doing a lot of research on vaccines as of late and have found a lot of information that convinces me that something in these vaccines is not safe. I was reading an article about Amish populations and how, possibly because most of them don't vaccinate, they have many fewer autistic children than the general population. Have you heard of this?

Also- do you have any solid sources/websites you can tell me about so I can learn more about this issue?

Dear Barbara Loe Fisher,

First off I would like to say thank you for giving me so much information on vaccines. Hopefully you read all of these comments and respond back to me. Next, I would like to tell you about myself I am 16 years old and I had Multiple Sclerosis since I was 10. It is shocking to find a child with MS but I do have it along with other kids. I strongly do not want any more children to get this horrible disease. The reason I am commenting on your blog is because you want everyone to be aware about vaccines. I feel that the Varivax Vaccine (Chicken Pox) gave me MS. I think that my mother was not aware of what the side effects were once she gave me the vaccine.
If you go onto YouTube and watch a couple videos on the chicken pox vaccine I think you will share the same viewpoint as me. For instance, Vaccine Shot Injection (abortion) is the first video I watched then yours. If I am talking to the wrong person please share my information with someone that can aware the public about vaccines. I now agree that every adult should know what they are injecting their children with. These injections could harm or kill us. Maybe the chicken pox did not cause my MS, but I STRONGLY feel it was played a part in it. Thank you for taking your time out to read this letter.
