Maine Parents Introduce the Maine Vaccine Consumer Protection Act

Seal-of-Maine-1Vaccine exemptions are under attack in Maine.   Maine bill seeks to halt surge in vaccination avoidance. Dr. Paul Offit has weighed in - and wants to take away your rights to make healthcare decisions for your child.  For most products, including medical care, when consumers walk away in droves, the manufacturers have to figure out why and change the product - or go out of business. In the vaccine industry, which is inextricably tied into the goverment, they simply write laws to take away your choice.  Many folks think of New England as extremely liberal, and in many ways that's true. But don't forget where our country, based in never bowing to a King, was born.  ###

From the Maine Coalition for Vaccine Choice, with special thanks to Ginger Taylor.

The Problem:  Parents are leaving the vaccine program because of lack of trust.

The Farnsworth Bill makes things worse.

The Solution:  Stop blaming the parents for leaving a broken program.

The Maine Vaccine Consumer Protection Act starts fixing the program.

The Vaccine Divide - The Solution:

The Maine Vaccine Choice Coalition opposes The Farnsworth bill, insisting that parents are not the problem in the increasing rates of those opting out of the CDC's vaccine program.  The problem is that the CDC's vaccine program is broken, and smart parents know it full well.  In turn parents are proposing The Maine Vaccine Consumer Protection Act which will address the true problems in the vaccine program that are destroying trust in vaccination and driving a wedge between families and their physicians.

The Maine Vaccine Consumer Protection Act

The 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, and the Supreme Court ruling Bruesewitz v Wyeth that sided with Pharma, removed the rights of individuals to sue in cases of vaccine injury and death, and closed the courthouse doors to families with vaccine injured families.  Vaccine injury claims were then moved to the HHSVaccine Injury Compensation Program. As a result of this freedom from legal accountability in the vaccine program, corruption has taken hold:

  • The Childhood Vaccine schedule ramped up from 25 to approximately 70 doses
  • The Federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program rejects the vast majority of claims made by families
  • States and families pay for vaccine injury cases that are the responsibility of the federal government
  • HHS has become a vaccine patent holder, while regulating, recommending and adjudicating vaccine injuries, without disclosing its serious conflicts of interests to consumers
  • Corruption in safety and efficacy claims are being uncovered on an increasing basis:

  • The current Congressional investigation into the #CDCwhistleblower Scandal, triggered when senior CDC vaccine scientist William Thompson admitted publicly that he and his research team had actively hidden vaccine autism links from the public.
  • The DOJ indictment of CDC vaccine safety researcher Poul Thorsen on 21 counts of fraud and money laundering for embezzling more than a million dollars from CDC and his university.
  • The current mumps outbreak coupled with the Merck Mumps Whistleblower Lawsuit in underway in federal court in which Merck's own scientists are suing the company for turning in fraudlent mumps efficacy data to the FDA to gain reapproval for the MMR II.
  • False vaccine safety claims made by MaineHealth both on their web site and on MPBN, that the public is unable to get removed or retracted.
  • The recent Government Accounting Office and Associated Press investigations into the failures of the VICP to properly compensate families of vaccine victims.
  • Research showing that, although the federal government will not officially establish the vaccine/autism link, the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has been quietly paying autism cases since 1991

To remedy this, Maine needs a Vaccine Consumer Protection Act to counter the corruption, misinformation, and attack on families right to informed consent.  The proposed act would:

Don't forget about the failed pertussis vaccine.

1) The currently used whooping cough vaccine helps, rather than hinders transmission of pertussis. A FDA researcher admits: '“When you’re newly vaccinated you are an asymptomatic carrier, which is good for you, but not for the population,” said Tod J. Merkel, the lead author of the study, who is a researcher in the Office of Vaccines Research and Review in the Food and Drug Administration.' Vaccine mandates will force families to use this product, which may place loved ones (e.g. infants)at increased risk of harm/death by creating asymptomatic carriers which could unknowingly spread the infection for over a month.

2) This vaccine will also make it so you are MORE LIKELY TO BECOME INFECTED if you encounter the most common wild strains of pertussis (PRN-neg). A CDC meeting discusses this (pg 6 under "Resurgence of Pertussis") : "Findings indicated that 85% of the isolates were PRN-deficient and vaccinated patients had significantly higher odds than unvaccinated patients of being infected with PRN-deficient strains. Moreover, when patients with up-to-date DTaP vaccinations were compared to unvaccinated patients, the odds of being infected with PRN-deficient strains increased, suggesting that PRN-bacteria may have a selective advantage in infecting DTaP-vaccinated persons." School vaccine mandates will force children to use a vaccine, which by the CDC's OWN ADMISSION, will put them at a disadvantage if they encounter the most common circulating isolates of pertussis.

Thank you! I'll be posting this AOA news on my FB.

Some states have been enacting or considering legislation to nullify federal laws that violate the Bill of Rights, such as gun control or indefinite detention provisions within the NDAA, sometimes in the form of making it unlawful to participate in or enforce the federal restrictions.

I can't see why a state couldn't make it illegal to deny the vaccine injured access to their courts. Though it will likely still be an uphill battle for the injured (I can't see any way that won't likely be the case), it will change, I believe, the level of motivation vaccine administrators have to give true vaccine risk information, and to not question every recommendation that comes out of the captive federal departments.

I wonder further if it could be feasible for a state to enact more strict safety guidelines for vaccines to be added to their school requirements, such as real safety research to be in place before a vaccine qualifies (which would require true control group research on every vaccine in use so far I would think--maybe I'm dreaming, but it seems such a fundamentally rational step for a state to take).

This is terrific Ginger!!! I love it!
Finally real informed consent and recourse for those harmed by vaccines.
Not too much to ask in the USA.


Talk about fools.
Here we have Dr. William Thompson; blowing the whistle on the CDC and we have three states just in the last few months trying to make rules and laws -

Our rule makers sure do not have a finger on the pulse of things going on do they???

And yet that does not stop them making rules. Hmmmm,hmmm, hmmm. It is a mad, mad world.

And I agree with everything that Linda1 said! Sharing your great comment with others, Linda1!


I agree with everything Laura said. Would like to propose another bill that would require every health care worker to wear a mask throughout the year, not only during flu season, since the flu vaccine is not 100% effective (not even close), is not guaranteed to match the circulating strains, does not protect against the transmission of influenza like illnesses, which are just as much a threat to patient health and well-being as the flu, and these contagious respiratory infections can be caught and transmitted all year long. Masks just for the unvaccinated is not enough. If they really want to protect the patient population from these infectious diseases, then ALL employees of health care facilities should be masked AT ALL TIMES at work. AND, all recipients of the live flu virus vaccine should be banned from visiting or entering any health care facility, day care, school, business, place of worship or place of food storage or preparation (such as a supermarket or restaurant) for a full month after vaccination at which time they would have to provide laboratory evidence that they are no longer shedding flu virus in order to have the ban lifted.

AWESOME, Ginger! Way to go on OFFENSE against our nation's dangerous, debilitating, and deadly vaccine program, a program fraught with corruption, deception, and crimes against humanity. Our government regulators, elected officials, and medical personnel have become TYRANTS. Americans need to wake up to that fact and demand that parental rights, medical choice freedom, true informed consent, and a return of liability to its appropriate owners be reinstated immediately.

Thank you, Ginger Taylor, for your tireless efforts to protect children, freedom, and parental rights. YOU are a national hero, and I hope that one day you will be recognized as such.
