Note: At what point, if any, will Californians protest against the ramming of vaccines into children in their state? No other medical procedure is so viciously mandated. Childhood obesity is a life threatening problem. Where are the weigh ins to receive SNAP (food assistance) and other forms of Welfare? Senator Pan. SB277. Now Assemblyman Chu with AB 1992 (autism epidemic anyone?), LA Times owner and vaccine/medical company tycoon Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong.
Families should not have to take give a flu shot to feed their kids. Under no circumstances in the United State of America. This isn't a response to an Ebola epidemic, for instance. This isn't martial law to protect from a raging, deadly infectious disease. This is demanding parents give up their pittance to survive in the most expensive state in the nation unless they accept every single vaccine demanded by CDC/Pharma and these politicians. Our Adriana Gamondes (to ehom goes the photo credit) shared this: California has the HIGHEST rate of child poverty, with 22.8% or 2 million children living at or below poverty line. Cue the California SCREAMIN'.
A controversial bill regarding access to welfare and immunizations passed out of a state Senate committee Tuesday. But the author said he would consider amending the aspect of the bill that troubles parents’ rights groups.
AB 1992, authored by Assemblyman Kansen Chu (D-San Jose) would improve access to the CalWORKS program to families that have not yet vaccinated children or have a hard time proving their vaccinations. State law requires immunizations for children in order to receive welfare benefits.
In addition to reducing financial penalties from $130 to $50 a month, Chu’s bill would give families who want immunizations access to such health care needs. He estimated there are 4,000 such families who do not meet the vaccine requirement.
But the bill also would also eliminate the personal belief exemption that allows families to opt out of the vaccine requirement altogether.
Senator Challenges Chu on Bill
That presented a problem to some members of the Senate Committee on Human Services. Sen. Janet Nguyen (R-Garden Grove) said she would otherwise support the bill, but questioned Chu about the removal of the exemption.
“I don’t know what the risk is. But, I know there are 4,000 families not immunized.”—Assemblyman Kansen Chu
“The intention of this bill is really not a discussion of whether a personal belief exemption should exist or not. We already had the conversation a few years ago,” Chu answered, referring to SB 277 which removed the personal belief exemption from vaccines to attend public or private school.
Chu said that removing the exemption made the bill comply with current law.
Nguyen followed up by asking what the public risk was with unvaccinated recipients of welfare.
