It wasn’t long after The New York Time‘s (NYT) published an opinion piece calling for the elimination of vaccine exemptions that parents took to the internet to voice their concerns and frustrations with a government and healthcare community that sees no problem infringing upon one’s right to opt out.
Dr. Kristen Feemster (a pediatric infectious disease Physician) in her NYT article urged the curtailment of philosophical and religious exemptions for the protection of those who can’t be vaccinated and for the public good. She further went on to claim that vaccines are safe and effective, that there could be no educated reason for abstaining and that exemptions have increased because people have forgotten what these “vaccine-eradicated” diseases look like; then she assumed that the scientific healthcare community and parents at large agree on what constitutes the public good.
Unfortunately, legislators are buying this view, and states like Colorado, New York, California, Texas, Washington and Oregon are passing strict laws that infringe upon one’s right to protect their child from vaccines and that require a brain-washing-like educational talk before opting out and a signed form where a signature can be used as an admission of neglect.
Whether you vaccinate or not, we have a problem. We have people suggesting that it’s the government’s place to tell us what’s best for our children. We have a healthcare community that is not educated on vaccinations, their ingredients or side-effects, and we have vaccines being injected into our children that have not been subjected to proper research, safety and clinical trials. It’s time to wake up and step up before it’s too late.
So what can you do?
Go to ParentalRights.org and sign the petition to add a “Parental Rights Amendment” to the United States Constitution.
Go to LivingWhole.org and print off the response (that’s gone viral) to the NYT’s vaccine exemption piece. Educate friends and family members, and email a copy to your state legislator, urging them to vote against any amendment that could infringe upon one’s right to refuse.
Join anti-vaccine coalitions and Facebook groups so that you can stay informed on the latest threats against your vaccine rights.
Most importantly, do not sign any “opt-out” or “liability waiver” form at your doctor’s office.
