JB Handley To Oregon Senate Committee on SB442 Vaccine Exemptions Bill

Parental advisory'TESTIMONY: Senate Committee on Health Care, State of Oregon, SB 442

February 18, 2015, 3pm

Respectfully Submitted: Jonathan B. Handley, Portland, OR

I was born in 1969. My father worked for the U.S. Government and I spent my childhood living in foreign countries, including the third world. Specifically, I was born in Singapore, then lived in Laos, Mexico, Korea, Japan, India, and the Philippines.

By my sixth birthday, I received a grand total of 5 vaccines (Oral Polio, Measles, DPT, Oral Polio, and Typhoid). I still have my shot records and would be happy to share with the committee.

In 1983, attached as Exhibit A, the 1983 immunization schedule for children by the age of 6 recommended 10 vaccines (DTP, Oral Polio, DTP, Oral Polio, DTP, MMR, DTP, Oral Polio, DTP, Oral Polio).

In 2015, attached as Exhibit B, by the age of 6, the CDC now recommends 37 vaccines for children before the age of 6. (Hep B, Hep B, Rotavirus, DTaP, Hib, PCV, IPV, Flu, Rotavirus, DTaP, Hib, PCV, IPV, Rotavirus, DTaP, Hib, PCV, IPV, Flu, MMR, Varicella, Hep A, Hep B, DTaP, Hib, PCV, Flu, Hep A, DTaP, IPV, Flu, Flu, Flu, Flu, Flu, MMR, Varicella). Because this is so confusing, I’ve attached the CDC schedule with my handwritten notes to count the total vaccines.

Interestingly, as opposed to the 37 we have, many other first world countries give far fewer vaccines to children by the age of 6: Iceland (11), Sweden (11), Singapore (13), Japan (11, and pulled the MMR vaccine due to high injury rate), Norway (13), Hong Kong (13), Belgium (18), Austria (19), Israel (11), Denmark (12), Netherlands (20). Please note that every country listed has a lower under-5 mortality rate than the U.S.

Some other facts:

1. The package insert for Merck’s MMR vaccine, the only option for parents trying to protect against measles states very clearly:
“Routine administration of DTP (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis) and/or OPV (oral poliovirus vaccine) concurrently with measles, mumps and rubella vaccines is not recommended because there are limited data relating to the simultaneous administration of these antigens.” 
Note: My children and many others receive these vaccines all at once in the United States.

2. Dr. Julian Whitaker, M.D. (Emory University) provides more insight about the paucity of testing of the U.S. schedule:

“You may find this hard to believe, but there is not a shred of evidence to support the safety of giving children so many vaccines, which are administered as early as a few hours after birth and as many as six or eight at a time. And any doctor who assures parents that vaccines are completely safe is flat-out lying…To ascertain immunization safety and efficacy, large comparative studies of the health outcomes of statistically significant numbers of vaccinated and unvaccinated children would have to be conducted. But this has never even been attempted. Yet one vaccine after another has been added to the already overloaded list of required immunizations…Depending upon which vaccine is being administered, a single shot can contain a brew of adulterated bacteria, viruses, aluminum, mercury, formaldehyde, hydrochloric acid, and/or numerous multisyllabic chemical additives. To say that repeated exposures to such a wide range of toxins have no cumulative adverse effects on a child’s developing nervous and immune systems is more than irrational…”

3. The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has paid out over $3 Billion to parents due to vaccines injuring their children.

Vaccines save lives. They also cause harm. They are a medical procedure, and the state should never force a medical procedure which is what you are effectively doing if you take away a child’s right to education without having every CDC mandated vaccine on the CDC’s schedule, the largest vaccine schedule in the free world.

4. PhRMA, the lobbying arm of the vaccine industry, brags that more than 300 vaccines are in development.

“Washington, D.C. (April 20, 2012)— America’s biopharmaceutical research companies are developing nearly 300 vaccines for the prevention and treatment of a wide variety of diseases, according to a new report by the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA). The vaccines – all either currently tested in clinical trials or under review by the Food and Drug Administration – include 170 for infectious diseases, 102 for cancers and eight for neurological disorders.” 
If you amend SB 442, will parents simply have to comply with every new vaccine added to the schedule? (Companies would not be developing these vaccines if they didn’t feel there was a market for them.)

5. By tying vaccination to public education, it becomes an effective mandate, as most Oregon families have neither the time, finances, nor abilities to homeschool their children.

A mandate of a medical procedure violates the very core of medical ethics code, as clearly stated by the American Medical Association:

“The patient should make his or her own determination about treatment… Informed consent is a basic policy in both ethics and law that physicians must honor, unless the patient is unconscious or otherwise incapable of consenting and harm from failure to treat is imminent.”

Here’s a quote from attorney Renee Gentry:

“Vaccines are incredibly important, but we should treat them as they are — man-made pharmaceuticals that carry risk. The fear is that if you talk about that at all, people won’t vaccinate. To say there is nothing unsafe about vaccines—when you can have a reaction to an aspirin—makes no sense. Informed consent is the underlying basis of medical care, and parents shouldn’t have to be afraid to raise questions with their doctors. Because yes, vaccine injuries are rare, but they do exist.”
* * *

In the free world, parents have the final say as to what is injected in their children’s bodies without losing the right to have their children educated. Canada, the UK, Japan, Ireland, Israel, Germany, Sweden, Norway, etc., etc., etc., the list goes on of countries who leave the final right for medical decisions to the parents. In fact, the only places in the free world where that right isn’t inalienable without a loss of education are the U.S. states of West Virginia and Mississippi. And, if SB 442 is amended to remove exemptions in Oregon, then our great state will become the third. Is that really who we are?

There is no imminent threat in Oregon. We’ve had exactly one reported case of measles. Please do not succumb to the hysteria of 100 measles cases reported nationwide.

If you paid close attention, what you learned from the recent measles hysteria was that the majority of adult Americans are way behind on their vaccines, which means this notion of “herd immunity” is mythical. How can the herd be protected if 80% or more of adults haven’t had their shots?

On that note, the CDC recommended adult schedule will likely be the next target of compulsory mandates. Right now, between the ages of 19 and 65, the CDC recommends every American adult get 73 vaccines (exhibit C). Are all the committee members up to date on their shots? Certainly, with the passage of any change to SB 442 it would be appropriate for every elected or appointed representative in Oregon to get up to speed on their shots, make that public, and also make the shot records of every one of their children public, too, would it not?

Is this really the world we want? I don’t. I moved to Oregon ten years ago because of this state’s respect and trust in the individual, and because of a history of respecting the inalienable rights and civil liberties of all to make their own decisions. Let’s not model our civil liberties after Mississippi and West Virginia. (By the way, Mississippi is contemplating a law to BROADEN their vaccine exemptions, attached as Exhibit D).

I implore you to leave the current vaccination laws in Oregon alone. They were only recently changed. They are working. They are striking the delicate balance between public health and civil liberties and medical freedom. Using SB 442 to remove exemptions will put Oregon’s government into a fight with many of its parents that no one wants or needs.

JB- Thank you for this thoughtful piece- I was educated and will pass on the knowledge- do you (or anyone else) have any idea on dates/timeline for this? Starting to mobilize. Thanks, J


Thank you JB. We are so grateful.

Thank you, powerful testimony!


I'm going to copy Jeff Prager's article and read through his referenced studies. Thank you Jonathan Handley for putting yourself out there for the sake of our children. Basically, when we mandate that parents vaccinate their children we are asking them to play a game of epigenetic Russian roulette. The CDC has chosen NOT to identify the risk groups for vaccine injury, rather they like to say repeatedly that vaccine injury is small collateral damage in the great war on disease. The genetic gun is loaded, the trigger will be pulled, and we wait to see if the epigenetic bullet is going to be a hit or a miss. If it's a hit well you can figure your life is over and so is your child's. And if it is a miss then you can join the happy band wagon of people who love to minimize, trash, scapegoat, and otherwise demean those who took the hit for them. But don't get too self-assured because you know the antigen wears out after about 2 years or maybe 5, and then they load up the pistol again for another fun game of epigenetic roulette. If this scenario repulses you as it does me then you write letters, fight the good fight, but above all pray for a break in the storm.

A brief look at published, uncontested peer reviewed literature dispels the myth that vaccines are safe.

I've been debating vaccines for years. I have a foundation with which to support my opinions. I've read many hundreds of independent peer reviewed reports that indicate clearly and unambiguously that vaccines are dangerous. About 70 are linked below.
Besides the independent peer reviewed literature I also use this statement, among others made by the same doctor, to guide me:

"It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”

~ Marcia Angell, MD, Editor of the New England Journal of Medicine for more than 20 years.

3,450 families (as of March 2014) have been compensated to the tune of almost 3 billion dollars by the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program and even THEY know vaccines harm children. They cause permanent brain damage and death. That's why the federal program exists. To compensate brain damaged and dead children's families. Those 3,450 children are only here in the USA but vaccines are used world wide.

Extrapolating those figures across the globe means approximately 80,500 children have been brain damaged or killed across the world by vaccines. Please think about that.

Here, below, are just a very few of the more easily understood reports that I've collected but believe me, I have hundreds more. I've been researching independent peer reviewed reports on vaccines for a long, long time. You might want to copy and paste these links listed below so that you might read them from time to time over the next few weeks or months. I believe everyone should regardless of your position on vaccines. These reports will help you understand the vast complexities involved in vaccination.

Many of these reports are written by researchers that are pro-vaccination but they're honest researchers attempting to add knowledge to the field of virology. Until we develop DNA specific genetic vaccines, perhaps decades away, the current process is the only one we have with all of its inherent benefits and harms.

Here is my position on vaccines: They are dangerous and cause serious harm and death. Each vaccine needs to be carefully researched by parents and weighed against that vaccines risks. Each vaccine is entirely different with entirely different ingredients manufactured in an entirely different process in an entirely different cell line—dog cells, insect cells, cow cells, pig cells, human cells and others—and they each carry entirely different risks, some much more risk than others.

If your child resides in a religious home and intends to remain celibate until marriage then the HPV vaccine is one you don't need. If your child isn't expected to use drugs or engage in risky sex, the Hep B vaccine may be unnecessary. If you believe the Trivalent vaccines present a risk you're unwilling to accept you might decide to opt for single dose vaccines. There are many, many other factors to consider before vaccinating an infant and these factors should be considered for each and every vaccine.

No one should be injecting their children with vaccines without serious research and serious discussion first, for each vaccination. More importantly, the current vaccine schedule represents a public health crisis. No one should be given multiple vaccines in one session. The vaccines should be spread out and administered individually. If you want to inject yourself without performing research I think that's just fine. Infants and children are another story entirely and they deserve more.

Vaccine contamination. Adventitious agents in viral vaccines: lessons learned from 4 case studies.

This paper describes the unfortunate detection of porcine circovirus contamination in a licensed rotavirus vaccine. This contamination event illustrates the gaps within the existing adventitious agent strategy and the potential use of new broader molecular detection methods: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25475629

Thimerosal is a preservative used in multidose vials of vaccine formulations to prevent bacterial and fungal contamination. We recently reported that nanomolar concentrations of thimerosal induce cell cycle arrest of human T cells activated via the TCR and inhibition of proinflammatory cytokine production, thus interfering with T-cell functions: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25424939

Overall these results underline the proapoptotic effect of thimerosal on primary human lymphocytes at concentrations 100 times less to those contained in the multidose vaccine, and they reveal the inhibitory effect of this preservative on T-cell proliferation and functions at nanomolar concentrations.

We report an unexpected contamination during clinical manufacture of a Human Papilomavirus (HPV) 16 E6 encoding plasmid DNA (pDNA) vaccine, with a transposon originating from the Escherichia coli DH5 host cell genome.

Perfluorinated compounds (PFCs), commonly found in nonstick cookware, food packaging, and stain-repellant clothing and furniture, may lower the potency of childhood immunizations: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3339475/

The production of biotechnology products using mammalian cell lines offers an inherent risk of viral contamination because of the scale of the process and the complexity of the materials employed.

But the limitations of such approaches became clear for thermolabile products that were removed early in fractionation such as antihemophilic factors, which transmitted hepatitis viruses and HIV-1 to some product recipients. Screening tests for viral contamination in raw materials have not proven practical by themselves to prevent contamination of cell cultures.

The Food and Drug Administration temporarily suspended monovalent rotavirus vaccine (RV1) use following discovery of contamination with porcine circovirus fragments and subsequently announced similar contamination of the pentavalent rotavirus vaccine (RV5) but recommended continued use of the product. 

Elevated exposures to PFCs, something found in all of our blood, were associated with reduced humoral immune response to routine childhood immunizations in children aged 5 and 7 years: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22274686

Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is a disease with autoimmune destruction of platelets. ITP among children has been associated with viral infections and some vaccinations.

We find that ethylmercury not only inhibits mitochondrial respiration leading to a drop in the steady state membrane potential, but also concurrent with these phenomena increases the formation of superoxide, hydrogen peroxide, and Fenton/Haber-Weiss generated hydroxyl radical. Additionally, we find a five-fold increase in the levels of oxidant damaged mitochondrial DNA bases and increases in the levels of mtDNA nicks and blunt-ended breaks. Highly damaged mitochondria are characterized by having very low membrane potentials, increased superoxide/hydrogen peroxide production, and extensively damaged mtDNA and proteins.

Findings suggest that U.S. male neonates vaccinated with the hepatitis B vaccine prior to 1999 (from vaccination record) had a threefold higher risk for parental report of autism diagnosis compared to boys not vaccinated as neonates during that same time period.

Significantly increased adjusted (sex, age, vaccine type, vaccine manufacturer) risks of autism, speech disorders, mental retardation, personality disorders, thinking abnormalities, ataxia, and NDs in general, with minimal systematic error or confounding, were associated with Thimerosal Containing Vaccine exposure: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16807526

The design and reporting of safety outcomes in MMR vaccine studies, both pre- and post-marketing, are largely inadequate. The evidence of adverse events following immunisation with the MMR vaccine cannot be separated from its role in preventing the target diseases: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22336803

Although vaccines harbor a major contribution to public health in the modern era, in rare cases they may be associated with autoimmune phenomena such as transverse myelitis: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19880568

Thus autistic children have a hyperimmune response to measles virus, which in the absence of a wild type of measles infection might be a sign of an abnormal immune reaction to the vaccine strain or virus reactivation: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12849883

The reported coverage of the measles-rubella (MR) or measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine is greater than 99.0% in Zhejiang province, China. However, the incidence of measles, mumps, and rubella remains high: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24586717

It has been reported that measles virus may be present in the intestine of patients with Crohn's disease. Additionally, a new syndrome has been reported in children with autism who exhibited developmental regression and gastrointestinal symptoms (autistic enterocolitis), in some cases soon after MMR vaccine. It is not known whether the virus, if confirmed to be present in these patients, derives from either wild strains or vaccine strains: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10759242

The combination of MMR and DTaP-Hib-IPV vaccination is associated with significantly increased rates of adverse effects: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20166340

The measles-mumps-rubella vaccine causes autoantibodies to be formed against myelin basic protein (the protective coating of the nerves) contributing to the pathogenesis of austim. Stemming from this evidence, we suggest that an inappropriate antibody response to MMR, specifically the measles component thereof, might be related to pathogenesis of autism: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12145534

Many autistic children harbored brain myelin basic protein autoantibodies and elevated levels of antibodies to measles virus and measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine. Measles might be etiologically linked to autism because measles and MMR antibodies (a viral marker) correlated positively to brain autoantibodies (an autoimmune marker)--salient features that characterize autoimmune pathology in autism. Autistic children also showed elevated levels of acute-phase reactants--a marker of systemic inflammation: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19758536

The aim of this study was to investigate a previously overlooked, universally introduced environmental factor, fetal and retroviral contaminants in childhood vaccines, absent prior to change points (CPs) in autistic disorder (AD) prevalence with subsequent dose-effect evidence and known pathologic mechanisms of action. Worldwide population based cohort study was used for the design of this study. Thus, rising autistic disorder prevalence is directly related to vaccines manufactured utilizing human fetal cells. Increased paternal age and DSM revisions were not related to rising autistic disorder prevalence: http://www.soundchoice.org/scpiJournalPubHealthEpidem092014.pdf

Co-administration of live measles and yellow fever vaccines and inactivated pentavalent vaccines is associated with increased mortality compared with measles and yellow fever vaccines only: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24325827

There has been an epidemic of inflammatory diseases that has paralleled the epidemic on iatrogenic immune stimulation with vaccines. Extensive evidence links vaccine induced immune over load with the epidemic of type 1 diabetes. More recent data indicates that obesity, type 2 diabetes and other components of metabolic syndrome are highly associated with immunization and may be manifestations of the negative feedback loop of the immune system reacting to the immune overload. The epidemic of diabetes/prediabetes appears to be accelerating at a time when the prevalence of obesity has stabilized, indicating that the negative feedback system of the immune system has been over whelmed. The theory of vaccine induced immune overload can explain the key observations that have confounded many competing hypothesis. The current paper reviews the evidence that vaccine induced immune overload explains the disconnect between the increase in prediabetes and nonalcoholic fatty liver at a time when the obesity epidemic is waning in children."

A two phased population-based epidemiological study was undertaken. Phase one showed significantly increased risks for autism, speech disorders, mental retardation, personality disorders, and thinking abnormalities reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) following thimerosal-containing DTaP vaccines in comparison to thimerosal-free DTaP vaccines.

CMO, it depends on which province in Canada you live in. Unfortunately some provinces do use the Hep B vaccine on newborns. Other provinces, like Manitoba, don't use it.


@Bob See:

Your submission is one of the most eloquent comments I have read re this issue (kudos to J.B. as well).

Hope things go well for you folks in Oregon...

Julie Penny

This morning, I cut and pasted JB's testimony prefaced with my own short note and sent it to my state Assemblyperson and my state Senator. They need to hear from all of us because the move is on to make all vaccine's mandatory. (ALWAYS include your own name and home address.) You can find who your own are by going online and typing in your state's name. For example, "California State Legislature." It'll take you to their government website where you can type in your address/zip code and they'll provide your district's Assemblyperson's name; your senator's and their phone, fax #'s, even their e-mail address. Follow-up the next day or 2 with a phone call to make sure they received it. (Same for your U.S. Representative and your U.S. Senator.) We have to bombard them with the treasure trove of information we have. They NEED to hear from us all. And that we are providing credible information. If you follow- up with a call let them know your story.

Believe me. Our reps need to know we have their backs.

@ Another great testimony

God bless you .. for taking the time and making the effort to "define the debate" .. as Socrates' himself .. and .. our Founding Father's .. would have done. Your treatise on "informed consent" was EXCELLENT. Thank you.

@ JB

"I think continuing to hammer on how differently vaccines are administered in other countries is a huge weakness for all this mandatory legislation coming down the pike.

I whole heartedly agree .. the difference between the overly aggressive .. totalitarian .. vaccination policies ..soon to become punative policies .. of US public health officials .. are the "archilles heel" of US Public health officials .. when compared to the "informed consent" .. non punative policies .. of foreign governments.

Are we to believe the "public health officials and policies" of foreign governments are "dangerous" .. as unvaccinating parents in the US are defined .. to the "herd protection" of their citizens .. and .. public schools?

Hopefully .. it is only a matter of time .. before our "elected" legislators can no longer defend the corruption of our .. unelected .. appointed .. federal bureaucrats.

After all .. we live in a country that STANDS ALONE .. and .. WILL NOT protect their citizens by labeling "GMO" foods.

We live in a country that STANDS ALONE allowing paramacuetical products to be "advertised on television".

We live in a country that will eventually STAND ALONE by "punishing parents and ostracizing their children" for being "outed" as "non vaccinating".

Thanks JB .. for you have done and continue to do for MY FAMILY.


I wonder what the rate of autism is among the children of the staff scientists at the CDC. Maybe we should just look at severe autism as opposed to the kind that Jerry Seinfeld has. How about diseases like diabetes and asthma? Learning disabilities? The rates should be comparable to the rest of the country, but somehow I think they might be lower.


Excellent, JB! One correction: US children do NOT get OPV administered simultaneously with measles,mumps and rubella vaccines. OPV is no longer used in the US. (We send it to India, instead where it causes 47,000 cases a year of "acute flaccid paralysis."

That said, I wonder EXACTLY what tests and studies have been conducted on the safety of administering the inactivated polio shot simultaneously with measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines (and the rest of the onslaught currently on the schedule for the 12-month vaccine visit).

cia parker

France requires the DPT (or DTaP) and the polio vaccine. The rest are optional. Especially the hep-B vaccine, which was mandatory for schoolchildren until it caused MS in so many, at which time the government moved it from the mandatory to the optional list.


Thank you JB! Your testimony was full of information I am sure many legislatures were never made aware of.

Some of them have no earthly idea how many vaccines are being mandated today.

I know because I hear about it from my "know it all" doctor/father-in-law in his 70s, "we got the vaccines, and we turned out ok"

I just want to reach over and slap him.

So thank you again for helping educate our law makers.


I think we should take the CDC, other US medical bureaucrats and politicians to international criminal court and accuse them of crimes against humanity perpetrated for profits on American children with toxic vaccines. These vaccines are nothing less but deadly bullets, which kill instantly or after delay. All Americans must resist forced vaccinations if they want to survive.

JB Handley

I have posted images of my Exhibits to the comments section of AoA's Facebook page. I think continuing to hammer on how differently vaccines are administered in other countries is a huge weakness for all this mandatory legislation coming down the pike.

Another great testimony

Testimony to the Oregon Senate Health Committee
February 18, 2015
Submitted by Bob Snee

The day Dr. Benjamin Rush, a signer of the Declaration of Independence warned us about while speaking at the Constitutional Convention, has arrived.

“The Constitution of this Republic should make special provision for medical freedom. To restrict the art of healing to one class will constitute the Bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic…Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution; the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship and force people, who wish doctors and treatments of their own choice, to submit to only what the dictating outfit offers. The Constitution of the Republic should make a Special provision for medical freedoms as well as religious freedom."

The threats to our Constitutional Rights are all around us and are even coming from you, our own legislators. Just as “national security” is being used by the federal government to justify invading the privacy of citizens, the “greater good” is used to justify under proposed SB 442, infringing upon the religious freedoms and freedom of conscience guaranteed to Oregonians under Oregon’s Constitution.

An organized orchestrated hysteria pushed by the national media as a result of just over 100 cases of the measles (with no deaths) is the driving force behind the push to restrict individual freedoms. When Time magazine publishes an article calling for the publication of the names and addresses of those who are unvaccinated, a new era of McCarthyism has descended upon this country. This nation was founded on the principles of individual freedom and liberty, and the Bill of Rights were adopted as amendments to the U.S. Constitution to ensure that government never overreached and trampled upon the rights of an individual.

SB 442 as currently drafted, and as it is proposed to be amended, will trample and shred Oregonian’s fundamental rights protected under the U.S. and Oregon Constitutions. If passed, SB 442 will unethically require forced medical procedures upon those who object because they have taken the time to educate themselves on the true risks of vaccines. We are living in an age of the great denial of vaccine risks and denial of individual freedom. Because vaccine manufacturers market and sell the only product in the history of the country that is exempt from all liability for design or manufacturing defects, by making vaccines mandatory, people will become nothing more than enslaved consumers of potentially dangerous products marketed by companies with no economic or legal incentive to improve those products.
Mandatory forced vaccination will trample on some of the foundations of medical ethics which require fully informed consent to any invasive medical procedure. The First Principle of the Nuremberg Code is,

“The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, overreaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision.”

The FDA, CDC and vaccine makers openly state that often the number of human subjects used in pre-licensing studies are too small to detect rarer adverse events, making post-marketing surveillance of new vaccines a de facto scientific experiment. In this regard, the ethical principle of informed consent to vaccination attains even greater importance. Forced vaccinations are different than other medical procedures is such a way that they demand greater deference to the ethic of informed consent, not less consideration. Every other medical procedure is an attempt to heal or remedy an already injured or diseased body. Vaccinations, by their very nature and design, purposely inject directly into a healthy body several known neurotoxins and live biological viruses in an attempt to create an immune response to protect against a mere potential that the person will encounter that targeted disease at some point in their future. A nurse I know recently argued with me while agreeing that all the potential side effects listed in a vaccine’s package insert are not listed in the CDC’s required vaccine information sheet, that “They have to dumb things down a bit so that average people can understand it.” How can you say that people are getting and making informed consent if they are not given complete information?

Mandatory forced vaccination makes a mockery of informed consent.

While researching this issue, I discovered that the American Medical Association’s Code of Ethics specifically recognizes that physicians may claim a religious or philosophic reason to not be immunized. AMA Code of Ethics Opinion 9.133 If doctors express the belief that it is ethical to claim a religious or philosophic exemption to vaccines, under what claim of right does the state have the capability of outlawing ethical behavior by its citizens?

Currently, as a result of the passage of SB 132 in 2013, the specific religious exemption for mandatory vaccines was eliminated with an acknowledgement that people who claim a nonmedical exemption may list religion as the reason. The former Oregon Administrative Rules defined “religion” as “any set of beliefs, practices, or ethical values.” In 2001, SB 450 was introduced at my request by then Senator Kate Brown, to provide for a philosophical objection to vaccines. The Oregon Health Department testified against SB 450 saying it was unnecessary since philosophical exemptions were protected under the Administrative definition of “religion.” The Administrative definition of “religion” encompasses the “rights of conscience.” That protection is now gone and SB 442 will further eliminate Oregonian’s Constitutional rights as set forth in Article I, Section 3, which states: “Freedom of religious opinion. No law shall in any case whatever control the free exercise, and enjoyment of religeous [sic] opinions, or interfere with the rights of conscience.”

If government in America is allowed to force its fellow citizens to risk injury or death without their voluntary, informed consent, then we are no longer free Americans. Our bodies are then owned by the state and can be sacrificed by the will of the state. Once you take away a parent’s right to make medical decisions based on informed consent for their children, it is only a short step before everyone loses that right to determine what substances will enter their body, since mandatory adult vaccines will quickly follow. Published just last week in the Federal Register for public comment is the new “National Adult Immunization Plan.” The very first line in the introduction to the plan states “Despite the widespread availability of safe and effective vaccines, adult vaccination rates remain low in the United States and far below Healthy People 2020 targets.” This misstatement of fact and denial of risk, in the absence of true vaccine safety studies, is astonishing when one considers a mere 29 years ago, the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Act was adopted acknowledging that vaccine injury or death may be “unavoidable even though the vaccine was properly prepared and accompanied by proper directions and warnings.” 42 U.S.C. 300aa-22(b)(1).

No real world studies of the vaccine schedule have ever been done. Of the 11 separate vaccines given to our children (many given multiple times), only one vaccine -- the MMR -- has ever been studied for its relationship to autism. Yet, our children get 6 or 7 different vaccines simultaneously at 2, 4, 6, and 12 month doctor appointments. Not one study compares vaccinated children to unvaccinated children.

Dr. Russell Blaylock, a neurosurgeon who has written eight papers and several chapters on the mechanisms of vaccine-induced neuropathology and neurological injury and proposed a plausible mechanism to explain a link to vaccine-induced autism, has stated:

“All of us should be terrified by the totalitarian nature exercised by the proponents of mandatory vaccines. Many are openly calling not only for mandatory vaccinations, but also hiding critical safety data from the public so as to give the impression of vaccine safety. Programs for mandated eugenics ended when the public realized the true result of such plans. This history is now rarely spoken about, yet present vaccine policies are just as frightening because they hold the potential to irreversibly destroy the lives of millions of our children.”

Proposed SB 442 clearly interferes and burdens the rights of conscience and will violate the Oregon Constitution if passed. As citizens, we must demand accountability of our government and demand our government protect our rights, not disregard them for “the greater good.” If SB 442 becomes law, then the promises of freedom and liberty that this nation were founded upon are nothing but a sham, an illusion.

Welcome to the totalitarian era. for then our bodies, ourselves, our souls, are truly owned by the state.


Thank you JB.

Does every newborn baby in America still need 4 doses of the heb b vaccine ??? First used with prostitutes and IV drug users in Vietnam ?

A vaccine not used on newborns in the 3rd world country of Canada ? Perhaps they could soften up on that item.

david m burd

JB, Thanks for being a true hero.

For everybody, here is The Schedule from CDC for infants and children. I call it The Most Horrific Document ever published.


Thanks to AoA, we can pass it on - so people can see for themselves(!) a U.S. Medical System completely out of control.


There is no country in Europe where vaccines are mandatory. In a few countries vaccines are only "obligatory", which means that the government is obliged to pay for them if a citizen chooses to get vaccinated. Nowhere govt forces any vaccine on people. The US has most fascist, genocidal vaccination program in the whole world and because of it, also has most biologically and neurologically damaged population. There are very few still healthy people left in the US. IMO, this is by design to completely destroy the US by killing and maiming its population with toxic vaccines. The most guilty of this crime are US politicians and regime criminals.


JB, do you think you can send this to the Pennsylvania legislature?


Thank you so much for standing up for all our rights!
Is there any way to see the attached exhibits? And is it ok to copy your letter to send to others?
Thanks for giving some hope in the midst of all this.


From 2012:

Information was collected from all 27 EU Member States, Iceland and Norway. In total 15 countries do not have any mandatory vaccinations; the remaining 14 have at least one mandatory vaccination included in their programme. Vaccination against polio is mandatory for both children and adults in 12 countries; diphtheria and tetanus vaccination in 11 countries and hepatitis B vaccination in 10 countries.

It appears from this report that MMR is not mandated anywhere in the EU. Isn't that interesting? Furthermore, 15 countries in the EU have no mandatory vaccination requirements at all. In Canada vaccines are also mostly voluntary. Isn't that interesting? What is so inherently different about the body of a child born in the U.S. that they simply must have all these vaccines, or we will all start keeling over, en masse?


JB, please post this on Knute Buehler's facebook page - the entire post, not just the link.


Thank you, JB!!

Maurine Meleck

Thank you for this. I, too, will use it as a reference and pass along to others.


This is what the AMA recommends for their physician members. (see item a.)

Opinion 9.133 Routine Universal Immunization of Physicians

"In the context of a highly transmissible disease that poses significant medical risk for vulnerable patients or colleagues, or threatens the availability of the health care workforce, particularly a disease that has potential to become epidemic or pandemic, and for which there is an available, safe, and effective vaccine, physicians have an obligation to:

(a) Accept immunization absent a recognized medical, religious, or philosophic reason to not be immunized.

(b) Accept a decision of the medical staff leadership or health care institution, or other appropriate authority to adjust practice activities if not immunized (e.g., wear masks or refrain from direct patient care). It may be appropriate in some circumstances to inform patients about immunization status. (I, II)

Issued June 2011 based on the report "Routine Universal Immunization of Physicians for Vaccine-Preventable Disease,"PDF FIle adopted November 2010.

Well Done

Are the exhibits posted online anywhere?


Excellent points JB. It should also be pointed out that taking away choice regarding vaccines violates the Nuremberg code.

Condensed Nürnberg Code

1. Absolutely essential to obtain voluntary, informed consent of every human subject. Voluntary means without any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, or coercion. Before asking his/her consent, must inform of all inconveniences and hazards reasonably to be expected and the effects upon his health or person that may come from his/her participation in the experiment.

2. Experiment must be designed to yield results for the good of society, unprocurable by other means of study.

3. Animal experimentation should precede experiments on humans.

4. Must avoid all unnecessary physical and mental suffering and injury.

5. Do not perform experiments in which there is reason to believe death or disabling injury will occur.

6. The degree of risk taken by subjects should never exceed that determined by the humanitarian importance of the problem to be solved by experiment. [Standler's comment: How do we apply this vague, overbroad principle?]

7. Proper preparations should be made and adequate facilities provided to protect the experimental subject against even remote possibilities of injury, disability, or death.

8. The experiment should be conducted only by scientifically qualified persons.

9. Human subject may withdraw consent at any time if he has reached the physical or mental state where continuation of the experiment seems to him to be impossible.

10. Scientist must terminate experiment at any time, if he has probable cause to believe that continuation of experiment is likely to result in injury, disability, or death to the experimental subject.


Bob Moffitt

JB .. this is an EXCELLENT response and I will keep a copy handy as a quick reference when responding to the dark side.

The comparisions with foreign developed countries was especially informative .. great information .. thanks.
