Vaccination Mandate Legislation: The One Where We Find Out Who We Really Are

Rubber meets the roadBy Ginger Taylor

Things have changed over the last few months.  The attack on parents who are calling out the corruption in the vaccine program, and on those refusing to ignore their intellect and their conscience when making vaccine decisions, has become shrill and is now in the process of becoming codified into law. 

The Public Private Partnership of Public Health and Pharmaceutical Corporations are now trying to bar children from school (and in some cases adults from their places of employment) if they do not agree to inject a cadre of vaccines that are classified by law as “unavoidably unsafe.”  And this is being done in the absence of any serious threat to public health. 

The measures have already failed in Oregon, Washington, Maryland, North Carolina, New Mexico, Illinois and Texas, but are still under consideration in California, Vermont and Maine.  In California and Vermont, legislators and lobbyists have taken to using some dirty tricks to ram these bills through the legislatures despite the outcry of very angry parents and disability rights activists.  In Vermont, parents were barred from even testifying on a bill that would throw children out of both public and private school (even special needs children) who are so much as missing one Hepatitis B vaccine.  Some Vermont Senators actually took the position on the floor of the Senate that their state didn't have an obligation to educate these children (or allow them enter a private school), and those families who wanted their children educated would have to sue the state.

It has presented a fork in the road to many who have not had to make a hard choice in this issue so far.

Over the last few months, in conversations with those new to the fight to prevent vaccine injury and get proper care for those who have been hurt, and those in positions to speak with authority on vaccine choice and vaccine safety, there has been a running question. 

“What will happen to me if I speak out?”

They are afraid of repercussions.  They see what happens to the social lives, public perceptions and careers of those who have spoken boldly on vaccine corruption and stood up for vaccine choice, and they are afraid.  They don't want to get Wakefielded. 

And who can blame them.  Because the answer to that question can range from, “Nothing bad will happen to you, and you will start to hear many thanks from people for speaking out on their behalf,” to, “The mainstream media will call you an anti-vaccine nut job, your relatives will disown you, your boss will fire you and you will loose your house.”

For random parents, it is usually closer to the former, but for professionals with a large platform to speak from and an audience to influence, it can be closer to the later.

But in thinking about how to answer people, a few things have occurred to me.

Our generation has sat in a comfortable place in history, and often judged quite harshly those who didn't stand up for the injured and oppressed minorities of only a generation or two ago.

We all seem to believe that we would have marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, and parked ourselves at lunch counters in the south until our black friends were served.  We all seem to believe that we would have hidden Anne Frank in our attics and kept Jews out of the camps by employing them like Oscar Schindler.  We all believe that we would have been a stop on an underground railroad.

And we believe it because we know now,  from the safety of our vantage point in history, that those that did were right and honorable and the best of us.  And we want to believe that we are like them.  We want to believe we are who they were.

We all want to believe that we would have walked next to Elizabeth Eckford as she tried to simply go to school.


But how much more serious was the threat to them for what they did, than the threat to us for speaking out and saying, “Pharma is hurting children, CDC is corrupt, vaccine safety researchers are under DOJ and Congressional investigations for fraud, the vaccine program is not safe, families don't have to participate if they don't want to, the vaccine injured must be cared for and the marginalization of unvaccinated people must end?”

“What will happen to me if I speak out?”

You will not be rousted from your bed in the middle of the night and disappeared.  You will not be lynched.  You will not be put into a concentration camp.  You will not be impressed into slavery.  You will not be set on fire.  You will not be raped.  You will not have your children taken from you.  You will not be shot on your lawn in front of your family and your neighbors. 

What will happen to you is that some people might not like you and might not want to associate with you any more, and that might cost you money and standing.  That's it.

Is that worth preventing the removal of the rights of citizens of the United States to decide what does or does not go into their own bodies and the bodies of their children?  Is that worth preventing throwing both healthy and disabled children out of their education?

This is the episode where we find out who we really are.

Who are we really?

In times like these, the question “What will happen to me if I speak out?” is easily answered by the question “What will happen to me if I DON'T speak out?”

The consequences of inaction are certainly greater!

Sadly, vaccine makers have no incentive to change their ways. They make huge profits but are totally protected from lawsuits because Congress granted them immunity in 1986. We the taxpayers are paying for the damages they are causing. Sound familiar? Privatizing profits while socializing risk!! If you want to change this, please sign this petition

Kindly pass this on to everyone you know. Together, hopefully, we can make a difference!

They say that the foster care system is already stretched to the breaking point, and they just don't have enough adults willing and capable of fostering. I don't think they would be able to take unvaxed children away from their parents, they just don't have the funds and the resources to do so, even though I'm sure they'd love to, to make a sadistically-motivated point.


Not saying my letter to the legislatures is perfect but if anyone would like to copy it and send it to there senators/representatives feel free. Change it however you want, copy word for word, or use it to write your own:

Your Name
Your Address


The Honorable Senator/Representative ________
Senator/Representative Address

Dear Senator/Representative _______,

I write this letter as a concerned citizen. The topic that I am writing about is a controversial matter and one that is currently getting a lot of heated attention. It is the topic of vaccines. This includes, children and adults alike. I would not call myself a complete anti-vaccination advocate, but what I would call myself is an advocate of freedom of choice and civil liberties. However, this letter may come off as anti-vaccination, because I am trying to bring neglected research and topics to light. I have and am currently conducting my own research on this matter and I seek the truth, so I can make my own informed decision for my own health.

Today, the media is a very strong form of communication and information. For some, the only form. Many times, the media can downplay or misconstrue information, or leave out information. The best defense against this is education and research. I feel strongly that the best way to have an opinion is a well-educated opinion based on facts. Unfortunately, I feel that many people either lack the resources or willingness to go the “extra mile” in learning about a topic. This is where media can condition or persuade people into thinking one way, without question. So, my problem with the media is that they leave out pertinent information regarding vaccines.

Many outlets today claim vaccines are safe and effective. I am going to emphasize the usage of the word “safe”. The usage of the word, safe, entails that there is one-hundred percent certainty that vaccines would cause no harm. One might say there is nothing in this world that is one-hundred percent safe. Although this may be true, careful attention must be placed on the usage of that language. After researching vaccine safety I was shocked that I found the opposite to be true. Firstly, there is a link dedicated to vaccine side effects on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website. Some of the more severe side effects include, but are not limited to long-term seizures, encephalitis (inflammation of the brain), anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction that could lead to death), chronic arthritis, and thrombocytopenic purpura (low platelet count) (1) (2). This information is from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the CDC. The side effects cannot and should not be taken lightly.

One can assume side effects can occur due to a few reasons. Ingredients are the main contributing factor in adverse side effects. Also, one could assume it could be an individual response to the ingredients, or one’s environment triggering known side effects. I, however, feel that the ingredients of vaccines are the main contributor of the nasty side effects stated above. I will only state a few ingredients here for the sake of time, which can be found in numerous vaccines. Ingredients include formaldehyde, thimerosal, Vero (monkey kidney) cells, fetal bovine serum, human diploid cell cultures, human embryonic lung cultures, and roughly four different types of aluminum (3). According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) formaldehyde is a cancer hazard (4). Children receive 49 doses of 14 different vaccines before the age of six, and 69 doses of 16 vaccines before age eighteen, which most contain this carcinogen formaldehyde, and can warrant the above side effects. The same goes for aluminum and thimerosal, which are known toxins and/or neurotoxins (5) (6). I do not feel that enough research has been conducted in finding out what the long term and even short term effects have on the human adult body, let alone a child. Especially with the increased rate of dosages and types of vaccines given to children. In 1983 the CDC recommended 23 doses of 7 vaccines between two months and age six. Now in 2015, the CDC recommends 49 doses of 14 vaccines before the age of six, starting at birth (7).

American civil rights are currently being attacked with the push to eliminate vaccine exemptions and choice. The current bills across the United States that are being proposed are to either limit or eliminate personal belief and religious exemptions, which violates the First Amendment, “free exercise” of religion (9). This also includes parent’s right to choose what is best for their children. According to the Nuremberg Code, “The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential” (8). This means that a person must give informed consent before any medical procedure takes place (8). Vaccination, is in fact, a medical procedure and is administered by a medical professional, therefore people should have the right to accept or refuse. Also, the vaccine industry has no liability, so the individual right to choose must be maintained. It is in a way a form of “checks and balances” (9).

The latest Disneyland measles outbreak has pointed the finger at the unvaccinated. However, the media sometimes forgets to “paint the full picture”. These sources have seemed to leave out vital information about vaccine shedding, in which the recipient of the vaccine can transmit a wild-type virus (10). Main vaccine culprits being measles, chicken pox, rubella, influenza, polio, and small pox (10). Keep in mind, Disneyland is a tourist attraction and visitors from all around the world attend the theme park. These visitors may not practice the same hygiene, sanitization methods, or they may harbor illness from their homeland. It is important to note that the best defense against illness is proper hygiene practices and sanitation. Over the years these methods have improved greatly which is a main contributor of why illnesses, like the measles were eradicated. Media outlets also do not stress the true effectiveness of the vaccines and in most cases disregard that vaccinated individuals are still susceptible of acquiring an illness that he or she has been vaccinated against.

In conclusion, I am asking you to take the time to thoroughly investigate this topic, calling media sources into question. Please consider the preservation and protection of American rights and freedoms. I thank you for your time.















Thank you for writing this article. We must all come together as one and fight for what is right. I have been sending out many letters to my senators in Ohio, even though Ohio's exemptions are not being under attack (yet). I have been sending them to other states as well. Whether or not it will make a difference, being that I do not live in those states, it's still worth every single effort. I have been trying to educate people through my own research so people can start to make better informed decisions and have a more educated opinion. Before I joined this fight I would have never thought I would have taken the time to do all the research that I have done or have written to my legislatures. I thought to myself, if you believe in something, you have to give everything you have and fight for those beliefs. Keep learning, keep educating, seek the truth, and most importantly never give up.

The real violence, here in Scotland, is from the 'proper authorities'. It is also they who turn friends, neighbours and family members against each other for the purpose of preventing people from comparing notes, or passing the message on by word of mouth. It will take wisdom as well as courage to stand up to these forces, which in this country are rather more subtle - and therefor harder to withstand - than you are experiencing in USA at present. When you win the right to choose don't sit back on your laurels, but beware of something worse!

I understand why some want anonyminity, as someone who speaks loudly and often about the dangers of the vaccine schedule as is, someone with a child who regressed into Autism as I watched helplessly, as someone who has done countless hours of research, advocacy and continues to do so, I have been called names, terrible ones. But that's not the worst of it. I have had threats, to my person, to call CPS to have my children taken away, even veiled threats against my children. Yes- I backed off and contacted the proper authorities when these things happened, but it shook me up, and I stayed quiet for a long time.

I just recently started being very vocal again, and so far, no threats. I feel lucky to have a job (teaching children!) whose parents are supportive of me, and my job isn't in jeopardy. But I also do not try and force my opinion on anyone- but I will answer questions if/when asked.
Family members may disapprove but keep it to themselves- so I'm ok with that.

Keep fighting the good fight, whether anonymously, under a fake name or as yourself. No matter how you fight, just don't stop.

People will soon be having kids of radar, if its not happening just now..



I think those with unvaccinated children may quite legitimately fear losing their kids if these bills pass.
But even anonymously, people can still make a difference, can still write letters, can still make phone calls, can still stand in a group and wave signs..
As they say, don't choose to do nothing because you can't do everything.

I would like to thank every one who has stood up in these comments. It is all the truth. It all comes across so clearly, I think, because it is happening to each of us in our own sphere of experience. The silence, the rolled eyes of family and friends and co-workers. We are all going to stand together, and we are going to show the amazing grace of what we know to be right. Join us for what is right or history will label you. The time to choose your stance is approaching faster than anyone would have guessed even a couple years ago. Please sign your real name.

So much for light it up blue

Yes, Patricia, we know that any doctors either do not vaccinate or vaccinate selectively do where is the outcry from them? Or the many celebrities in CA?


Surely there are family doctors out there who can distinguish between a patient holding controversial views on vaccination and a mandate that takes away their basic human rights?

Why are they not speaking out like Mary Holland? Her superb letter should be circulated and counter signed by all those in agreement.

I cannot believe what I am reading here right now on AOA.


Thank you Ginger.

As the parent of children with multiple food sensitivities, Lyme disease, anxiety disorder and autism, it seems I spend my whole life fighting for their rights and their health, and defending against those who belittle and deny their struggles. I admit, I get sick of it. I avoid discussions with people who can't/won't understand.

My children have not followed the vaccine schedule. I carefully select which vaccines my daughter receives, and when. My son was vaccine injured at 2yrs. He will never have another. These choices have always been just one more reason why family and others roll their eyes over our "attention seeking" and "irresponsible" lives. To avoid the fights and quell my anger, I don't talk about vaccines.

However, things have changed. It is isn't just about me protecting my family anymore. Our rights for parental control and medical freedom are being taken from us. What we do today will determine the rights of all of us, well into the future. It does take courage to be willing to stick your neck out and withstand the negativity and hate that may come your way. But as you so clearly point out, we owe so much to the brave souls of other generations, who risked so much for what is right. It is time for each of us to ask ourselves if we too can be brave when it matters.

Thank you for putting things in perspective. I needed to hear this.


Such great points, Ginger. Thank you so much Age of Autism for always providing important news such as this article and Laura Hayes recap of yesterday's CA senate goings on.

Laura Hayes

Great article, Ginger...thank you.

Two more MLK, Jr. quotes to add to the excellent ones already put forth. I have these written on a notecard in my home office, right next to my computer, so I can read them often.

1. In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.

2. Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.


Another MLK quote

"We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In the unfolding conundrum of life and history, there is such a thing as being too late."

Too late with autism for far too many.

"Over the bleached bones and jumbled residues of numerous civilizations are written the pathetic word "Too late". There is an invisible book of life that faithfully records our vigilance or our neglect. Omar Khayyam is right: "The moving finger writes, and having writ moves on."

The Pan-derers want to make it too late for more.
Their shameful acts are written in the book.

Bob Moffitt

Here are a few Martin Luther King quotes on "leadership":

"I agree with Dante, that the hottest places in hell are reserved for those who in a period of moral crisis maintain their neutrality. There comes a time when silence is betrayal."

"When people get caught up with that which is right and they are willing to sacrifice for it, there is no stopping point short of victory."

"We cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back."

"All we say to America is, 'Be true to what you said on paper."

"Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity."

We do have many "leaders" (RFK, Dr Wakefield, etc)who have not betrayed us by choosing to remain "neutral" .. they have "spoken up" .. they have already made great sacrifices .. and .. we proudly walk along side them on their journey.

Unfortunately, there are far too many "dangerous" people who pretend "sincere ignorance" and practice "conscientious stupidity".

It is THEY who are on the wrong side of history!!!!
