Move over Rick Perry California’s got your back.
I just came across the following information on elimination of parental consent and knowledge as a prerequisite to vaccinating children in California. I checked the date and went, ‘why in the world didn’t I hear about this?’ The information is several months old, but I decided to post it as a quick note for those who happened to miss this development on the police state front, thinking, if as an avid reader and news researcher I missed this, probably many others must have too. Here are a few excerpts on this issue:
The state of California has just passed bill AB499, which will permit minor children as young as 12 years old to be vaccinated with sexually transmitted disease vaccines like Gardasil without parental knowledge or parental consent. This means that if you live in California, school or medical personnel would be allowed to vaccinate your child against an STD without your ever knowing it.
At issue, of course, is whether 12-year-olds are mature enough to fully analyze the benefits versus risks of vaccination (or any medical treatment for that matter), or recognize the alternatives to STD prevention, such as abstinence. Meanwhile, a child could suffer a vaccine reaction and the parent, not knowing the child had been vaccinated, could mistake it for the flu or another condition, delaying getting help until it is too late.
But, perhaps the greatest issue of all is whether this law violates your basic right to be involved in important decisions regarding your child’s health.
The state of California has just passed bill AB499, which will permit minor children as young as 12.
Not only does AB499 remove a parent’s right to give their informed consent, but parents will not even have the right to be informed if their child is vaccinated. As Age of Autism recently reported, this could be disastrous for the child’s well-being …
The article goes on to list the major role played by the pharma industry and their octopus-like lobby:
Pharmaceutical and medical lobbyists were heavily involved in pushing AB499 through the state legislature. After all, by stripping parents of their right to make informed decisions about medical procedures that could harm their children, they have tapped a new market for their Gardasil vaccine. And, at a cost of $108 per dose to the government, Merck, the vaccine’s manufacturer, stands to profit handsomely.
Meanwhile, California taxpayers will likely foot the bill for the multi-millions of dollars this law will cost to implement. Parents are NOT responsible for the costs (how could they be if they’re not even informed that a vaccine was given?), so the bulk will come from the government (i.e. the taxpayers). As Fisher states:
“This proposed law would cost the cash-strapped state of California multi-millions of dollars to implement. Most of that money will go to Merck and other vaccine corporations to pay for multiple doses of each vaccine that will be aggressively promoted to young children, who are not yet physically, mentally or emotionally mature enough to make fully informed decisions about risk-taking, including whether or not to take a medical risk.”
Well, some of you may say, ‘Old old news. Where have you been all this time!’ But I am sure some of you will appreciate this info as parents. As for me:
I am one of those full-time mothers who would rather juggle multiple gargantuan tasks-work, live on less, than to ‘outsource’ my baby’s care-nurturing to the corporate or government childcare industry. So that should give you an idea as to where I stand on this highly troubling issue. My daughter is now 3, and I have less than two years to get her out of here, to a place where I won’t be forced to relinquish my parental rights and responsibilities to the State. My child ain’t gonna be no police state’s youth, and she ain’t gonna be raised in any state’s bosom; cosmetic differences and brand-names don’t make a difference: whether Hitler’s youth or Mussolini’s youth, whether under the fatherland or motherland brand, whether from the US Department of Homeland Security or Department of Education, whether in the name of national security or national health…
