"Creating a system to ensure that medical exemptions are scientifically justified isn’t just a public safety issue. It’s also imperative for ensuring that white privilege isn’t given the imprimatur of the medical establishment, using it to sidestep democratically enacted law."
This is one of the most disturbing messages we've seen from Senator Richard Pan, archipuppet of California's SB277 bill that removed and tightened vaccine exemptions since he said that water is the most toxic ingredient in any vaccine.
We in the vaccine safety, medical freedom communities (plural because we are not monolithic in our thinking, and that's a good thing) are the last exposed, unprotected and targeted group for bullying. In his Facebook message, Pan turns to racially profiling us. White privilege? Offensive beyond belief.
White Privilege: inherent advantages possessed by a white person on the basis of their race in a society characterized by racial inequality and injustice.
Pan is likely referring to this study - Sociodemographic Predictors of Vaccination Exemptions on the Basis of Personal Belief in California.
The right to make healthcare decisions has nothing to do with race. Pan is using political rhetoric to divide us in a nation already splintering.
