Not ALL mainstream media is ignoring our side of the vaccination issue

On June 18, 2015, the Sacramento Bee, a major daily newspaper from California’s capital city, published an article about the funding push behind SB277 – legislation intended to take away parent’s rights to philosophical and religious exemptions to vaccination.

The attempts to remove parental choice that we are seeing in Australia are happening in just about every country around the world and are being coordinated and funded directly by the companies that produce and profit from vaccines.

Entitled, Drug companies donated millions to California lawmakers before vaccine debatethis article in a major, mainstream newspaper, paints a sordid picture of corruption occuring in plain view. Senator Richard Pan, a medical doctor who introduced this bill and has been playing all sorts of nasty tricks to prevent the opposition from having a say. He has had over $500,000 donated to his campaign by drug companies over the last 4 years. Many others in the California Senate have had similar amounts ‘given’ to them by these vested interests and I personally believe that these politicians have been bought in order to gain their support for this tyrannical legislation. 

As bad as this information is, at least in the US, it is available to the public. In Australia, there is no way to find out how much money our politicians  have taken from Big Pharma (and other corporate interests) in order to promote their products.

A Voice for Choice, a consumer organisation that supports freedom of choice on this subject, is funding a week’s worth of political cartoons in the Sacramento Bee newspaper. Even if I had the money to do the same here in Australia, I doubt that any newspaper or magazine would run these cartoons because they answer to their advertisers – not their readers.

Here is the first cartoon – I will publish the others on this page as they are published in the US.

Tug of Love – Doctor vs Parent

I carried my children in my belly for 9 long months – all the while dreaming about who they would be and thinking and planning about how to give them the best possible life. I loved them from the moment I knew I was pregnant and I know that my husband did too. Over the years, we have spent thousands of hours researching schools, health, diet, environment and everything else that might affect them either for better or for worse. We don’t begrudge one second of this time and would spend 100 times as long if it would mean that our children would be even one little bit healthier or happier. There is nothing more precious to us in this world then our kids and I know that you feel the same way about your children too.

The love a parent feels for their child is like no other love in the world. We love our parents, our siblings and our partners, but we really, really LOVE our children. It is an overwhelming, all-encompassing emotion and it would see us gladly give our lives so that they can live – I can’t think of anyone else I would die for but I would die for any one of my children without even thinking twice.

But this bond – this responsibility – is being denigrated by our government and our medical community who insist time and time again that when it comes down to it, they really love our children more than we do and if we choose to do something they don’t approve of, they will solve the ‘problem’ by taking our children away from us and doing it anyway. (Go to your room right now young lady! And no dinner, breakfast, or babies until you agree to do as we say. After all, we have your family’s best interests at heart – you don’t!)

Last night, I was interviewed by radio station 6PR in Perth about a family who was forced – against their religious, philosophical and religious beliefs – to get their newborn vaccinated against Hepatitis B because the mother was Hep B positive. The vaccination does not guarantee protection from infection nor is it 100% safe since many tens of thousands of reports of serious reactions and deaths have been reported following this shot. Two of them are in our web gallery – Lyla Rose Belkin and Robert. There are many, many more on our adverse reactions database including fit and healthy adults who took this vaccine for work and have been permanently disabled as a result.

The interviewer actually said that he felt the doctor who got the court order and the judge who made the order care more about the welfare of this baby then their parents!

It’s fine to disagree about what the best steps to take when a mother who is Hep B positive gives birth to a baby. Life is full of risks and it is a parent’s job to reduce those risks as much as possible. The problem emerges when the government, the courts and the medical system decide that they know more and care more about a particular child than their loving parents do. This is not a situation where a child is being physically or emotionally abused; where their parents are starving them to death, tying them up for 24 hours a day or not providing them with an education. This is a situation where – on the word of ONE doctor – a court has ordered that a child be vaccinated against a disease that they may or may not contract with a vaccine that may or may not protect them but which has a chance  of not only permanently injuring but killing them as well.

In a case like this, it must ALWAYS be the parent’s right to have the final say. Neither the doctor, the hospital nor the judge will be responsible for the care of this child should the worst thing happen and they become permanently injured. So it is not the right of the doctor, hospital or judge to order that this medical procedure be administered.

Public health policy in QLD states that the vaccine is to be ‘offered’ but that parents have the right to say no. So why do the courts feel that they have an option to take away that right?

Here is the interview if you want to download it and here is a link to the 6PR website where you can listen to it online and leave comments.

What do you think? Whose responsibility should it be to care for children – the parents, the courts, the government or a single doctor? Please let us know. Remember – no swearing, foul language or personal attacks will be moderated but considered comments are very welcome.
