I read this article this morning and got that old familiar queezy feeling in the pit of my stomach. I remember the good old days when my children (five of them) had to receive mandated vaccinations in order to be allowed to attend public school here on Long Island. Choice? There was none.
I’m a little older (actually a lot older!) and wiser now and if I had to do it all over, knowing what I know now, I would challenge the school district on their policy of forced vaccination. The story below by William Campbell Douglass ll, MD is another that raises my blood pressure about twenty points.
This piece is another one of those “must read” articles that will provide the reader with important information about mandatory vaccinations and how our personal freedoms are eroding day by day.
Parents jailed for not vaccinating kids
Vaccines are the most dangerous “accepted” practice in all of medicine. The latest vaccination outrage occurred in Prince George’s County, Maryland where – believe it or not – parents were actually told to appear in court and subject their children to on-the- spot, state-mandated vaccines of UP TO 17 DOSES … OR FACE IMPRISONMENT!! What’s more, parents who ignored the court’s demands were subject to a $50 fine for each day their child was “out of compliance” (i.e., not surrendering their Constitutional rights to the state), or up to 10 days in jail.
Which is more sickening? That this kind of outrage can occur without national outcry, or that it can happen about a 30-minute drive from the front steps of the rotunda of the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C.? How is it possible that the schools allow this sort of thing to go on? Why is an education system party to such a gross violation of personal rights?
Maybe this next bit of information will clue you in.
The Prince George’s County school system is allocated $11,325 per student, per year. This sum comes from a variety of sources, and roughly breaks down this way: About 7 percent ($780) comes from the federal government; 46 percent comes from the state of Maryland ($5,246); and 47 percent comes from local monies such as city budgets ($5,298).
In order for the schools to receive that money, a child must be enrolled in the school. Simple enough, right? Well, according to the state regulations on vaccinations, a kid CAN’T be enrolled if he doesn’t have his vaccinations up to date. In fact, he could be expelled.
According to the news report, there were as many as 2,300 hundred kids being barred from school due to their non-compliance with the vaccination policy. If those kids were tossed from school due to state regulations, that would mean the PG County school district would suddenly be out an astounding $26 million in revenue from the state and the city! No wonder they wanted to threaten the parents with jail!
Don’t let them suck you in with all that “it’s for the safety of the children” nonsense. As always, it’s about the almighty dollar. This is just the kind of issue that gets me going, because it’s not only about good health, it’s also about the protection of your personal freedoms. And the sad truth is, when it comes to vaccinations, the choice is very rarely yours. Your body – and the bodies of your children – are the property of the government when it comes to vaccines. It’s not only un-constitutional; it’s downright scary.
Thankfully, there’s no such thing as bad publicity. The more these kinds of things happen, the more the anti-vaccine groups are able to get some much-needed media attention for the cause. There are two great groups out there who are fighting the good fight against vaccines: PROVE (Parents Requesting Open Vaccine Education) and the American Association for Health Freedom (AAHF). These organizations are doing what they can to ensure the philosophical exemptions to mandatory vaccinations are enforced throughout the country.
You read that right. Refusing vaccines just isn’t a matter of saying, “no thanks.” While every state in the union protects those medically exempt from vaccinations (those with proven allergies to certain vaccines), and every state except Michigan and West Virginia offer religious exemptions, there are ONLY 18 STATES that offer a philosophical exemption. The fact that most states make a legal distinction between a “religious exemption” and a “philosophical exemption” (which, if you ask me, is the same exact thing), is bureaucratic hair-splitting of the most egregious kind.
If a study came out tomorrow that proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that vaccines weren’t dangerous (don’t hold your breath, by the way), I would STILL be shouting about exemptions at the top of my lungs. Why? Because it is a FUNDAMENTAL PERSONAL RIGHT to CHOOSE what is and what is not injected into your body and the bodies of your children. This right needs to be upheld in ALL 50 states in the U.S., and FULLY PROTECTED by the federal government. The right to choose to be fully vaccinated, partially vaccinated, or completely unvaccinated should be up to you. And no amount of money or influence should be able to bend such a basic constitutional freedom. Period.
Taking aim at mandatory shots,
p.s. School kids aren’t the only ones subjected to mandatory shots. Our soldiers are routinely jabbed with all sorts of vaccinations, including ones that have never been clinically tested, and that have been causing a slew of heart-breaking side effects—and even a handful of deaths.
