On June 29, 2015, California enacted a new law that denies parents the legal right to file a personal belief exemption to vaccination for religious and conscientious beliefs so their children can attend school.
From the article on Mercola.com:
From flash to bang, it took the politically powerful corporate, medical trade, and government lobbyists just six months this year to gut the human right to informed consent to medical risk taking and the civil right to a school education in California.
They did it by enacting a new law (SB 277) signed by Governor Jerry Brown on June 29, 2015 that denies parents the legal right to file a personal belief exemption to vaccination for religious and conscientious beliefs so their children can attend school.
In order to sign the bill into law, Governor Brown had to abandon his long-standing legislative record as a champion of parental and religious rights and school education.
NVIC called him out in a July 1, 2015 letter for failing to protect California families from segregation and discrimination based on vaccination and health care choices that parents make in the best interest of their minor children.
Consistently throughout the legislative process, the numbers of California citizens testifying in opposition to the oppressive bill vastly outnumbered those testifying in support.
The ramming of SB 277 through the California legislature despite strong public opposition was an impressive demonstration of the brute power that can be wielded by the public-private partnership between government and industry dominating the U.S. health care system in the 21st century.
Disinformation about the measles outbreak at Disneyland1 and vaccine safety and effectiveness was used by mainstream media outlets to forward the forced vaccination agenda in the legislature in an attempt to neutralize the growing number of citizens standing up and defending their human and civil rights in our nationís largest state.
Even though thousands of men, women, and children from all walks of life came again and again to Sacramento this year to attend public rallies and testify against SB 277 in Senate and Assembly committee hearings, the Senate voted 25 to 10 and the Assembly voted 46 to 30 to approve the legislation after contentious floor debates.
Further on in the article it goes on to say that parent’s options will be restricted to either get their kids vaccinated, home school, or go to jail. Meaning if you still choose to not vaccinate your children, homeschooling is your only option. If for some reason you cannot home school you would then be subject to legal action.
Children are not the only target, adult medical workers have also been required to get vaccinated to continue to work. When I was in school we did a rotation at ECMC hospital in Buffalo. I was suppose to get the vaccine but we were able to abstain if we wore a mask while there.
News like this makes me nervous because of the thought of loosing our right to choose. The good news to take from this article is that there are plenty of people that oppose this bill, and have made their voices heard. Similar bills had been attempted in other states and they were met with strong opposition and defeated. Thankfully, we still have our freedom of choice here in Georgia, however this push to eliminate our choice will continue.
