Parental Rights and Vaccine Choice by Randall Neustaedter, L.Ac., OMD
I've remained relatively quiet about the vaccine controversy, mostly because I feel like parents have the right to choose whether or not they want to vaccinate their children. However, the government is now encroaching on our parental rights to decide what is best for our children. It's time to take a stand and protect our parental rights as well as our right to choose whether to vaccinate our children, based on educated and informed decisions. It's our choice. I don't believe the government know what's best for our kid's health. If the government can mandate vaccines, what's next? What other freedoms will be forced to give up? That's why I felt called to share the guest blog post from Dr. Randall Neustaedter, L.Ac., OMD. He sheds light on the ugly truth about why our parental rights are under attack.
Don't be Fooled: An Historic Moment by Dr. Randall Neustaedter, L.Ac., OMD.
The Medical Takeover
A hundred years ago one branch of medicine took over the medical world by producing a report. The Flexner Report of 1910 cut off funding for every form of medicine other than what we know today as pharmaceutical industry medicine (or conventional medicine). In one fell swoop the burgeoning Homeopathic and Eclectic medical schools were bankrupted and eventually all closed. The pharmaceutical industry reaped enormous profits.
Legislating Drug Industry Powers
In February 2015 the pharmaceutical industry has made another phenomenal power play. Legislation has been introduced in states across the country to ensure that every citizen of the United States is forced to take drugs. The United States of America was founded on the principles of personal freedoms, to practice any religion and maintain any personal belief, free of persecution. Pilgrims fled to America to escape religious persecution and gain religious freedom. But the pharmaceutical industry, in concert with state legislatures across the country and Congress, has decided to remove the right of individual citizens to exercise their personal beliefs. Nearly every state in the nation has maintained a religious belief or personal belief exemption to vaccines, enabling parents to pursue their own judicious, informed decisions. But the powerful pharmaceutical industry has proposed that this right of parents be stripped from them. Sidestepping the dangers of vaccines, drug companies have promoted a propaganda campaign playing on fear of disease. Ignoring the epidemic of autism and asthma in children caused by vaccines and the many deaths and lifelong health problems inflicted by vaccines, the vaccine industry is pursuing a tyrannical campaign of forced vaccination. Ironically, this profit-motivated campaign is being promoted as a public health measure, despite the potential dangers associated with vaccines. If parents are concerned that a new vaccine may not be needed or is not completely safe, they will have no option to exercise their right of dissent or personal or religious objection to vaccination if these laws are enacted.
Don’t be Fooled
Don’t be fooled by the appeal for herd immunity and public health. Vaccine companies are interested only in their own profits. Don’t be fooled by the smokescreen of measles or pandemic flu epidemics. Vaccine companies have hundreds of vaccines in development. It is a very short path from vaccine research to government recommendations to state enforced requirements. Don’t be fooled into complacency. Don’t let your government hijack your personal liberties. And don’t think this will stop with vaccinations. Once precedents for forced medical procedures are put in place, others will follow. Preserve your right to make personal and informed medical decisions.
Take action now. Your personal liberty depends upon it. Organizations are forming across the Internet to preserve personal choice for medical procedures, including vaccination. 1. Go to the www.nvic.com Advocacy Portal and follow the legislation. Call your elected representatives. Express your opposition to legislation in your state. 2. Sign the online petition to the White House. 3. Don’t relent in your pursuit of personal liberty. Join the slowandnovaxmoms Yahoo group to see what you can do. In California go to the www.SB277.org website for updates about current actions you can take. Do it now, your personal freedom is at stake.
