Taking away the right to choose under the guise of informed disclosure/awareness

In case you aren’t aware there is a trend happening in the US as of late and it needs to be addressed before it spreads to neighbouring countries, namely where I reside. It is a trend that is very on the line of taking away our right to choice and freedom; all for profits. It is a trend that is making some parents feel forced; into doing something that they do not wish to do and it is also causing wrongful descriptions upon a categorized group of people.

 

What am I talking about? The bill that is requiring parents to get an extra signature on their vaccine exemption forms. Sounds pretty innocent when you word it like that; I mean what’s an extra piddly little signature anyway? I’m guessing that this is why it isn’t causing as big of a stink as it should but that’s not fact; it’s only a guess. I can only give my opinion based on the facts at hand because others may see this bill differently and I can only hope that what I have to say is considered by people in regards to this bill.

So why should I worry, why should my opinion matter since I do not reside in the states affected nor am I even in the US? Precedent, We see it all the time; one state passes a bill, other states follow and soon Canada may consider trying to pass their own similar bills. This is one reason why I am concerned and why my words should not be simply dismissed based on the fact that I do not reside in the area where the bill is passed. Is it really logical that my opinion is null based on that alone? Should we dismiss opinions or studies etc. because their origin is in another area? Does that make their information less valid because of this? No it doesn’t but alas there are those who use this excuse right away because they cannot dispute the information or perhaps they feel that the information is correct and try to make it seem unworthy of discussion; because there really are sides here and it becomes a very sad sorry world when one person’s choice or opinion is removed simply because another’s has basically taken over and deemed correct without any/very little information present.

Now how does a signature reduce people’s rights/freedoms and how can people possibly profit from this? It’s pretty clear once you understand the bill and I want to make it clear to people that while this bill does not state that vaccines are mandatory in anyway, it puts people in a position where they do not see the option to choose. So let us walk through it shall we. So if this bill were passed the situation would be as follows. You would need a signature from a doctor on an exemption form that can basically state anything as long as it includes that information about the benefits of vaccines were explained and still refused. There is no specific letter or form required to be signed, so doctors can pretty much make up their own form to be signed as long as it includes a statement about information being given. In a perfect world this would be no issue, but here in reality there are numerous problems to this and one of them being doctors lashing out and health facilities adding that little bit extra like, parents are aware that they are putting their child at risk or some other rubbish that could generate problems for the parents in the future.

A product should not be mandated; it should not be forced upon and for those that deny that vaccines are being forced upon the public must be blind to not see how they are. A ton of people truly believe that their children cannot survive without vaccines, that if they do not receive them in a timely manner that they will surely die a horrible, devastating death. While these misconceptions need to be addressed in another post altogether it helps form the picture of the constant push parents feel in regards to vaccines, which bring me to the next bit about freedom and choice. Parents who wish to get an exemption don’t want to sign a paper that says they are horrible for refusing something that they believe is not needed, goes against their beliefs or may bring harm to their child. How many doctors are going to be good about this and sign an exemption without the backlash? Especially when a lot of people who are getting exemptions do not see the mainstream doctors, run underneath the boheimeath health care empire, who are the only ones able to actually sign exemptions under the new bill. What if there is no doctor in your area willing to sign, since there is nothing in the bill to account for this possibility parents are left to go against their will and vaccinate, because even those who homeschool apparently fall under this bill as well. With no way to get a signature and the only option being presented is to give in, isn’t this essentially forcible vaccination under duress?

At first I didn’t even think about profit, normally it is usually the very last thing I look at which seems absurd to some people who have a base of “follow the money”. Now while I don’t think that, that method is horrible; in fact it is very useful and has brought about many conclusions, answers and motives to many interesting things. I though take information as my base and only use the money matter when I want to “plump up” the information, so to speak. Also since where I reside we have a slightly different system it didn’t even factor in at first. Of course that’s what research is all about isn’t it; discovering things you never considered. In the US it costs money to see a doctor, for each visit you have to pay, or your benefits company pays or like here; we pay in our taxes. In the US its more ‘out of pocket’ which also makes it easier to see that money is actually being made. So this extra visit (or possible numerous visits if it becomes difficult to get a doctor to sign) is making someone money. Not only that but you are required to go twice, since the bill also states that a new exemption is required again in grade 7.

If you look strictly at the money, you can see why this bill would want to be passed by doctors; and they have been making sure to show up in huge numbers to speak on behalf of the bill at hearings, also it should be noted that doctors are the only ones actively pushing for this bill. At a recent hearing for the bill the room was filled with two sides. At one end of the room were those who wished this bill to be passed and they were all doctors, every single one. On the other side of the room were those who opposed the bill and they consisted of people fighting for their rights to choose, doctors that were speaking out and most importantly; parents who have a child or children that were injured or died because of vaccines. Why do I think they are more important to note? Because unlike all the doctors who were there because of a conference with all the perks of a vacation, coincidentally taking place right next to the hearing, these parents had to take time out of their insanely busy lives (taking care of a vaccine injured child + working + the rest of the family’s needs + maybe just maybe, a bit of their own) to not only travel all the way to the hearing but also pay for the trip, out of their own pockets, when most of these parents are struggling already because of all the medical bills that they have to pay for their child who was injured.

So these doctors have every interest in this passing, they will get at the very least two paid visits from each exemptioner and if they’re lucky, the parent will give in and they will make money off of every vaccine that will be given; there’s what, almost 40 now? Why would doctors care so much about making money, is it perhaps that with all these people getting exemptions and having no need to visit their practices, starting to show up in their lack of profits? I can only guess as to why, but it all seems very sad to put people into this position all for money.

Not only are parents feeling forced to go against their choice, they are being shed in this shameful light that is so ridiculous and makes my head spin that people actually eat these lies up. This is being done namely through mainstream news reports and usually quoted from doctors or health care representatives. Over numerous articles, those who do not vaccinate are being put into a category with some or all of the following traits and also reasoning; too lazy to get their children vaccinated, stupid, do not understand science, living with misconstrued fear, abusive to their children, neglectful, burden to society by relying on others vaccination status, following a new trend, listening to misinformation and not reading “facts”, causing “outbreaks”, killing other people and children, have disease ridden children, do not know how to take care of children and/or keep them healthy, are poor and/or illiterate, are taking advice from a ‘disgraced’ doctor, taking advice from celebrities, taking advice from online, misguided, crunchy-granola-tree hugging-hippy people and the list goes on. Basically the general population is given the idea that those who do not vaccinate their children are uneducated, poor, awful parents who are creating these ‘bio-hazardous’ children that will go around and kill a bunch of people. Oh ya and they are lazy too.

Not only is this an unfounded, uneducated and completely bullshit bit of thought,, but people we are supposed to hold in high regard, people in charge of our health for f**sakes; are the ones saying this. Type in anti-vaccine into a search engine and site after site of remarks from people/authorities that push for vaccines; about an imaginary little group of people that are apparently bent on spreading fear, disease and killing a bunch of innocent people. Do the same search but for something like vaccine injury and you will see a different side; a picture more suiting of this “group” of people. What you’ll find is mostly people who has or whose children have been injured or killed by a vaccine and then doctors and other ‘specialists’ who are speaking out. They are well read individuals that take on the task – above their other responsibilities- to not only sift through countless amounts of information but also learn about studies, health, science, environment and other things they though they’d never have to know so much about. They aren’t people who have jumped on some ‘band-wagon’ and followed the crowd, they are not new and they are not some mob spreading fear. They are people who should be commended for their hard work instead of condemned for the knowledge they have learned. They know more about health and vaccines than most common doctors and their children are disease free, disease safely fought without spread and are lacking in nothing. Put simply; what is being portrayed is in fact the opposite of what is real.

If bills like this continue to be passed it will not only be taking away people’s rights, it gives a portrayal that vaccines should not be refused, that people who do are in the ‘low-end’ of society and put their children and others safety at risk, but most of all it sets precedent for other similar laws to pass easily. Bills like this only end up in the wallets of those who put them forth.

What’s the big deal with AB2109?

 

All of us have noticed the big push from health care as of late and have read pages upon pages of tactics that they list and publish, to try and push vaccines on the total population. So is it any surprise that they are trying to change laws in order to make it more difficult to say no? Of course it isn’t and neither is it a surprise that they will make more $money$ because of this new bill.

Now while I am sure that it didn’t all start with Dr. Richard Pan, his name is on this bill so he is taking the brunt of the backlash. Despite the numerous postings of upset parents, practitioners and even people around the globe… he does not respond, but continues to post articles as if they don’t exist. Maybe he thinks if he holds out long enough, the bill will pass and they’ll all disappear.  But we’ll have to wait to see how that pans out.

There are a few who don’t get what the big deal is and protest that this isn’t forced vaccination so people shouldn’t be complaining. So what better thing to do than clearly outline what is so bad about this new bill.

Currently in order to get a philosophical exemption, one has to simply write and sign a piece of paper and send it to the appropriate place. The new suggestion is that in addition to that piece of paper, parents must also go to a doctor and listen to them lay out the benefits and risks of vaccinations, the doctor must write a letter, sign it and then the parent must write another letter and sign that one. This must also happen again once the child reaches grade 7 and applies to children who are homeschooled as well.

So now not only can’t you just opt-out, you have to sit in a doctor’s office and risk catching something, but you must also listen to them tell you; how wonderful vaccines are, how the only risk is a sore arm, maybe a possible fever and that you are putting your child and everyone else at risk by not vaccinating cause your child is now a cesspool of disease.

Before I move on to the next point of contention, I want to touch a bit on these papers that have to be written and signed, according to the new bill. Most of us are familiar with the general working of doctor’s offices these days. As it stands, most doctors don’t even discuss vaccines but instead simply state that your child is due for them. There is never an option given to opt out and most people are not aware that it is even possible to do so. Most offices don’t keep you in for the appropriate time to watch for an allergic or otherwise reaction after injection and most doctors have absolutely no clue, what the signs of a reaction are. Multiple stories from families all ring the same ‘the doctor would not even consider that a reaction was possible’ ‘the doctor kept denying that it could be the vaccine, despite all other possibilities being ruled out’ ‘my baby turned blue and stopped breathing and he just kept saying, it’s not the vaccine, it’s not the vaccine’.

I’m getting to my point I swear.

With doctors continually denying risks and not being aware of current studies how can they properly inform parents of the benefits and risks when they are so biased, uneducated and opinionated on the subject.  With that in mind we come to the signed papers. I have not found anywhere that it states what is to be written on that document. It would be nice to assume that it will say something like, risk/benefits were explained and medical intervention was denied. In reality it could be very different. Doctors could write that risk/benefits were explained and parent refuses, putting child and community in danger. Then the parent is required to sign a paper showing that they basically agree to the doctor’s paper. If a parent is being required to sign such a thing…… no wonder there is backlash about this.

People refusing to inject their children with a manufactured product didn’t do so lightly and didn’t do so out of laziness or lack of funds. People refusing are educated on vaccines, diseases and how to properly treat them without the need of synthetic materials. Doctors, hell a lot of people are dismissing real concerns as some passing trend. Maybe if they started acknowledging these concerns, actually listening and investigating; we wouldn’t have such a misunderstanding from health care professionals. It’s not from lack of trying, more and more people are not only learning about what is happening: they are seeing it with their own eyes.

The next point and it’s a biggie….. what if you cannot find a doctor to sign? Nothing in this bill states that a doctor must sign a paper allowing exemption and according to the new bill, without a signature you cannot get an exemption and therefore you child cannot attend school. This is where the mandatory vaccination line comes into play. Now follow along here…. Your child must attend school or you can be charged. If you cannot find a doctor to sign an exemption than your child cannot go to school, forcing you to have to vaccinate in order to gain attendance. Homeschooling is not an option because this bill also applies to homeschoolers. Since an increasing number of parents are now using chiropractors and naturopaths etc. and these doctors are not able to sign the exemption, they are left to seek out a doctor to sign. If no doctor in their area will sign (since it is a new trend to not allow unvaccinated patients in their offices) they have to travel in order to find one. What if this is not possible? Do they then have to go against their belief and vaccinate their child because, they have no other option. This is why parents are protesting this as mandatory vaccinating. They know all too well what their old doctors are like and how hard it will be just to say “no thanks, we’re good”

You all know my opinion; opt in not out!

I left the best part for last, because it’s something I noticed right away and here is why. With every new vaccine, drug or medical treatment; there is always a cost analysis to determine if it is viable to put to market. If a procedure costs more than it would profit, it is usually shelved. Vaccines are always checked to make sure that it is profitable and marketable. I saw this very early on when I started learning to read studies, so I noticed right away that there was some noting at the bottom of the bill, stating that any costs could be deferred and it got me thinking about how this bill could possibly be profitable. It didn’t take long of course, to see where the money was going to go and yes this bill will be making people money. Think about it.

Every parent in California, wishing to get a philosophical exemption will have to pay in order to receive one, because seeing a doctor there is not free, even for something that is mandatory.(this bill makes it mandatory to see a doctor in order to sign) Since it is being estimated by health care professionals that more people are getting exemptions and “putting people at risk” than it surely must be a lot of people right? All those people now having to pay for an exemption really adds up. Not only do they have to pay now but if their child is young, then they have to pay AGAIN when that child reaches grade 7. Next they’ll put in place a new bill making them return for another exemption for high school and it could go on like this. It’s obvious why they are doing this and it’s a very simple reasoning. Doctors are losing money and fast. Many people do not realize how many well baby appointments are recommended, all occurring when a vaccination is due. Not only are they paid for the visit but they make money on each vaccine given as well. If more people are not getting vaccinated and therefore not needing to go for well baby visits, then doctors are not receiving that money anymore. This new bill will ensure that, that money lost is partially made up, while also hoping that parents will crumble and give in to vaccines.

A final point of contention in this bill, that I nearly forgot to write about (it is 2am here) is that it sets precedent. I touched on before that people all over the globe are protesting on Dr. Pan’s facebook page and this is the reason why. If this passes, then more states will likely try to pass the same. Following in its footsteps could be other countries and that’s what worries people. Better to nip it in the bud now before we have a full out bloom that could eventually lead to a very real, very deadly and completely mandatory vaccination rule.

For now I am glad to be living in Ontario where all I have to do is pay $25 to get a form notarized and I don’t have to listen to someone less educated in vaccines than I, tell me that they are completely safe and nothing bad will happen to my child.

For now at least.

Stay Tuned……There’s Ton of Fun For Everyone

It sure has been awhile since I’ve posted, computer crashes set you back immensely and it has taken quite a bit of time to get back up and running again…at least partially. When your computer gets a virus it is a drag, but you can learn from it, properly or the lazy way; this can be used as a great example of a huge problem with our healthcare.

So your computer gets a virus and crashes. Now you have to start from scratch and also take measures to ensure that the same thing, to the same degree does not happen again. So what do you do?  Well you could take lead from our “health care experts/system” and either wait for another virus to happen and try and deal with the problems that arise or you can use the “fool proof” virus protection as a preventative measure  that will 100% assure you not to get a virus.

Yeah Right!

The other thing you can do is actually learn from the experience and take measures from that knowledge without putting all of your reliance on a Product. You can learn what the virus attacks first so you can be aware of the signs and also ways to stop it once it has started, you can back up files to have ready in case of a crash so as to not lose all of your data and you can stay away from sites and downloads known to frequently contain viruses.

Lame example I know but if it relates then I’ll use it; someone, somewhere will understand it.

So now that things are mostly fixed on my end I can get back to chewing up the news and what excitement has been happening since I’ve been MIA.

I’m hoping to get to all of them, which will take time so I think a quick little bit about it is in order…
