Thank you to Laura Hayes for sharing this letter - we invite you to do the same. Here's the file. CA Vaccine Exemption Bill Religious Leaders Letter
Subject: Appealing for help from our religious leaders in CA
Dear Pastors, Priests, Bishops, Rabbis, and Others,
Currently in CA, there is a bill before the legislature, SB 277, which would eliminate a parent's right to exempt their children from one, some, or all vaccines, a risk-laden medical procedure (only a medical exemption would remain, which is usually only issued after a catastrophic adverse vaccine reaction has occurred, and often times, not even then). Should this bill become law, it will apply to ALL students in California, whether they are enrolled in pubic school, private school, parochial/religious school, charter school, or home school. Should this bill become law, it will apply to CA's current 69-vaccine schedule, which includes vaccines that are for sexually-transmitted diseases (i.e. Hepatitis B at birth, and HPV, possibly soon to be required for kindergarten). This list of 69 would be allowed to be added to at any time by the state of CA, via the California Dept. of Public Health, without limit or public input. Currently, there are approximately 300 vaccines in different phases of development, each of which is a possibility to be added to the vaccine schedule for California children.
Thus, every resident in the state of CA between the ages of 6 and 18 will be forced to be vaccinated with every mandated vaccine in order to reside here and to be eligible for any public, private, or home school. Since education is compulsory, opting for no schooling will not be an option. When vaccine mandates are law, the only way a parent can protect their children from the known and unknown dangers of vaccines and/or from the known and unknown problems with the current vaccine schedule is through the use of exemptions. If SB 277 passes, there will soon be no more exemptions for such protections.
At present, a parent can sign a Personal Beliefs Exemption (PBE) form in the state of CA to exempt their children from one, some, or all vaccines. However, since Jan. 1st, 2014, when AB 2109 went into effect, even that must be signed by a specified healthcare practitioner after the parent has been forced to submit to a lecture of personal opinion by the practitioner. In other words, even our current PBE is technically a medical exemption in that it must be signed off on by someone other than the parent who is from the medical profession. Encompassed in our current PBE is a Religious Exemption (RE), of sorts. I say "of sorts" because it is so incredibly discriminatory and restrictive that it applies to very few, if any, parents.
Thus, even our restrictive, cumbersome, and costly PBE is in serious jeopardy, meaning that our rights as parents to make medical decisions for our children, specifically vaccination decisions, could be removed completely in CA in just a few short months. This is an urgent matter. This is medical fascism. This is tyranny.
As religious leaders, I assume that you would all agree that it is parents who should direct the upbringing of their children, including making medical decisions for them. Furthermore, I assume that you would all agree that prior, voluntary, and informed consent for any and all medical procedures is both essential and ethical, a fundamental human right. When prior, voluntary, and informed consent for medical treatments and procedures is no longer the law, we are no longer a free society, and we are no longer able to make life-altering medical decisions in accord with our religious beliefs, conscience, knowledge, and experience.
This issue is very personal to me because all 3 of my children suffered injuries from their "routine" childhood vaccinations, one to the point of being permanently disabled and dependent on others for the remainder of his lifetime. I was never offered any type of informed consent whatsoever back in the 1990s when our children were vaccinated, in violation of federal law. The nurse would quickly administer a tray full of syringes to my child, without my even knowing what exactly they were or what exactly was in them, and without my ever being told of their many risks (including death). The doctor would enter the room 10-15 min. later without a word about all of the vaccines my child had just received, without any information about side effects to be on the lookout for, and without any warnings about the dangers of what had just been done to my child. There was absolutely no informed consent with regards to my children, and the situation has not changed much today. Vaccine propaganda is at an all time high, and the truth about the dangers and inefficacies of vaccines is both suppressed and lied about, as is information regarding the fallacy of the theory behind them and the vast fraud and corruption that underlie our nation's vaccine program
I can assure you that each of you has parishioners who are extremely concerned about losing the right to make voluntary and informed medical decisions for their children. Their concerns are most especially warranted in our country where those who manufacture and those who administer vaccines are shielded from any and all liability for any harm, including death, that results from vaccines, due to a 1986 Act of Congress called The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act. That Act came about because of the very dangerous nature of vaccines. Vaccine-making pharmaceutical companies were losing many multi-million-dollar lawsuits due to the injuries and deaths that their vaccine products were causing, so many in fact that the majority of companies had already stopped making vaccine products. The remaining few pleaded before Congress to protect them from any and all liability for their vaccine products, and unbelievably, Congress succumbed. No other industry is afforded such protection (with the exception of nuclear power plants). In just a few short years, with no liability to worry about, and thus with very little incentive and zero accountability to make safe or effective products, and with nothing but profits ahead because their products are government-mandated for millions, our nation's already-problematic vaccine schedule tripled! That tripling included: highly-neurotoxic/deadly amounts of mercury; another heavy metal, aluminum, which when paired with mercury the two become synergistically neurotoxic; cancer-causing ingredients like formaldehyde; polysorbate 80 which opens the blood-brain-barrier allowing heavy metals and other toxic ingredients to enter the brain; human and animal viruses, including retroviruses; aborted fetal tissue material; anti-freeze; food proteins that cannot be broken down by the blood which then cause inflammation and lead to serious food allergies; human and animal DNA; materials from monkeys, cows, mice, pigs, and dogs; the list goes on.
No doubt you are aware that American children are sicker and more disabled than they have ever been. Autism is now affecting 1 in 50 children; asthma 1 in 11; food allergies, some of them life-threatening and all of them life-altering, affect at least 1 in 12 children; Type 1 Diabetes has skyrocketed alongside Autism, and now affects around 1 in 400 children; seizure and tic disorders are running rampant; juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and cancer are now prevalent in children; SIDS is not uncommon, and not surprisingly, often happens in close proximity to vaccinations; speech/language, learning, and behavioral issues abound in today's children and challenge teachers like never before; and to top it off, our nation has one of the worst infant mortality rates among developed nations, despite the fact that we spend more per person than any other nation on "health" care! There are many credible studies showing links between vaccines and the many chronic illnesses, developmental disabilities, and premature deaths that now plague American children, the most vaccinated children in the entire world. Unfortunately, these are not the studies that mainstream media highlight as these studies would threaten mainstream media's advertising dollars from pharmaceutical companies, upon which they have become dependent.
Lastly, in 2011, the Supreme Court of the U.S. declared vaccines "unavoidably unsafe", i.e. inherently dangerous. Every time a consumer purchases a vaccine, a 75-cent surcharge/tax is added and then deposited into our nation's Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), a program that was created as part of the aforementioned 1986 Act because it is common knowledge that vaccines will harm, will disable, will make chronically ill, and will kill. We also have the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) here in the U.S., which receives more than 32,000 reports every year. It is estimated, and admitted by both the CDC and FDA, that only 1-10% of adverse vaccine reactions ever get reported (so do the math and multiply 32,000 many times over!), as many doctors are not even aware of the program, they are not required to report, and doctors often do not want to admit vaccine failures, vaccine injuries, or vaccine deaths. Parents rarely, if ever, have heard of VAERS or the VICP, and are likely to find out about them if their child is injured or killed by a vaccine(s) only after the 3-yr. statute of limitations has expired.
I am hoping that this little bit of background will help you to better understand why we need religious leaders speaking out against the many false prophets who falsely and continuously claim that "vaccines are safe and effective." They are not. They are a risk-laden medical procedure, with a substantial failure rate and only temporary results at best, and as such, each parent needs to decide whether or not they want to undertake that risk for their children, especially when so many risk-free ways exist to protect, maintain, and enhance the health of one's children. For those of us engaged in this battle, we cannot help but compare it to what happened in Nazi Germany, where fascism became the way of life, and where medical treatments and procedures were forced on people without their prior, voluntary, and informed consent. Post WWII, to address the horrors of what had happened in Nazi Germany and in concentration camps, an international code of ethics was written, The Nuremberg Code, to avoid such medical fascism from ever occurring again. The U.S. signed the Nuremberg Code, but is no longer abiding by it, as evidenced by vaccine mandates, the restricting and eliminating of vaccine exemptions, and the increased forcing of certain medical treatments on U.S. children (e.g. chemotherapy). The elimination of vaccine choice rights also violates our parental rights as guaranteed by the Constitution, and it violates our religious freedom as guaranteed by the First Amendment. After witnessing, firsthand, vaccine injuries in my own children (including near death followed by permanent disability), I have come to the belief that vaccines are an abomination to God, and that tragically, parents are unknowingly offering up their children to be harmed, and possibly killed...on the altar of pharmaceutical profits, corrupt liaisons between government and industry, and the false gods of medicine. This may not be true for all, but it is true for me, and I am supposed to be living in a country where I am free to pursue and practice the religion of my choice, and hold my own religious beliefs, or lack thereof. As leaders of different religions, I am sure that you want your religious freedoms protected as well.
Many of us are praying that our religious leaders will speak out against SB 277's violations of parental rights, religious freedom, prior, voluntary, and informed consent laws with regards to medicine, and perhaps other things that might be religion-specific (e.g. the injecting of aborted fetal tissue materials; the injecting of porcine (pig) viruses and materials; the injecting of known neurotoxins into an infant during the most critical times of neurological and immune-system development; performing a risk-laden, potentially-fatal, procedure on a healthy child; etc.). You can help by contacting state legislators and/or Governor Brown, discussing this with members of your congregations, talking to the media if you are comfortable with that, testifying in upcoming hearings, writing an article, or whatever else you think might be helpful. We would also be interested to have your assistance as many of us would like to begin to hold prayer vigils in opposition to this bill.
I would be happy to have an in-person group meeting with all of you to discuss this bill and the issues it raises, and how it affects the parents and children in your congregations. We need brave leaders to come forth to protect our children, our families, our rights, and our freedoms from those who place wealth over health, from those who would impose their will on others, from those who use fraud and deception to push their agendas, from those who would use coercion and force to force a parent to submit their child to risk-laden medical procedures against their will, and from those who will bear no liability or responsibility whatsoever when harm and death result from "routine" childhood vaccinations.
