INFORMED CONSENT ?
WHY YOU SHOULD OPPOSE SB 277 and any bill
that Mandates vaccinations
Vaccination is a medical intervention that carries a risk of injury or death. The right to informed consent to any medical intervention that can kill or injure you or your child is a human right. The right to be informed about medical procedures, and then to decide which medical interventions, if any, are best for ourselves and our families - has been the bedrock foundation of medical ethics for over 100 years. Informed Consent means that we have the right to understand what is to gain from a treatment, that treatment's limits, and as with any medical intervention, its risks. We then have the right to consider that information as a whole, and make our own risk/benefit analysis about proceeding with the intervention. As parents, it is our job to make this analysis on behalf of our children.
The American Medical Association's own Code of Ethics directly opposes vaccine mandates and supports informed consent in all circumstances!!
You currently have the right to Informed Consent. You have the responsibility to become fully informed about vaccines and the right to make voluntary choices about whether or not to risk your life or your child’s life with a vaccine or any other procedure a medical doctor recommends. The more educated you become about vaccines, the more empowered you will become and the better able you will be to stand up for your right to informed consent to medical risk taking.
There are some very important reasons why legally protecting the right to informed consent to vaccination without penalty by the State should be a priority and these crucial points have been left out of the conversation by forced vaccination proponents.
· Vaccines are pharmaceutical products that cause injury and death for some. The United States Government has paid out more than $3 billion dollars to vaccine victims. Many more people have adverse reactions. Nobody can predict who will be harmed from vaccines.
· Vaccines manufacturers and the doctors who administer vaccines are completely shielded from liability for vaccine injuries and deaths.
· Vaccines fail sometimes where even fully vaccinated people become infected. Nobody can predict who will or will not respond to vaccines.
· Children today receive 69 doses of vaccines for 16 different viral and bacterial illnesses which more than doubles the government childhood schedule of 34 doses of 11 different vaccines in the year 2000. A vaccine exemption is filed regardless of whether the exemption is filed for one dose or all doses. 35 doses and 5 more unique vaccines have been added to the schedule in the last 15 years. Those supporting forced vaccination are being dishonest by not acknowledging the exploding vaccine schedule while sounding alarms over small increases in overall non-medical exemptions.
· There are hundreds of new vaccines in development including some of the following in clinical trials: HIV, herpes, E. coli, dengue fever, avian influenza, smallpox, tuberculosis, typhoid, norovirus, cholera, smoking cessation, syphilis, and gonorrhea. If vaccine manufactures and others who profit from forced vaccination convince legislators take away our right to delay or decline a vaccine now, what will our future look like?
· In the past 5 years, drug makers have paid the U.S. Government $19.2 billion in criminal and civil FRAUD penalties. Skepticism of the pharmaceutical industry is well deserved, and it doesn’t imply a skepticism of science.
· Physicians, in the American Medical Association Code of Ethics, affirm philosophical and religious exemptions for themselves. See Opinion 9.133 Routine Universal Immunization of Physicians. Parents should have that same right.
