I found this article on hsionline.com. I highly recommend this site,you can find a lot of information on health related issues there. There you can also find a doctor that practices alternative, natural or complementary medicine in your state!
If you’ve got Gardasil outrage fatigue, prepare to have your outrage fully revived!
“OMG! Did you hear what’s happening in California?”
My friend Sarah sent that question attached to a very disturbing article.
What’s happening in California is so obviously, GLARINGLY wrong that it’s hard to imagine how such a completely ludicrous idea ever got off the ground in the first place.
A few days ago, the California Senate passed a bill (already passed in the CA Assembly) to slightly reword the state Family Code.
This minor change is actually ENORMOUS because it allows children as young as 12 to consent to vaccinations that prevent sexually transmitted diseases without their parents’ approval. In fact, their parents don’t even have to be informed when the vaccines are given!
Now it’s up to Governor Brown. If he signs it, it’s law — done.
The article includes an appeal to contact Gov. Brown and urge him not to sign the bill.
That’s a great idea, if you’re a California parent. But the article missed one very important point: California is NOT the only state where this is happening.
In fact, millions of U.S. parents will probably be shocked to learn that this very law is already on the books in 10 states and the District of Columbia.
Welcome to the Big Pharma States of America where pediatricians and possibly even school medical personnel can give your kids a Gardasil vaccine without you even knowing.
Surprising end run
Rick Perry was a dangerously loose cannon when he attempted to make the Gardasil HPV vaccine mandatory in Texas. But abolishing parental consent is even worse in this one key way: If the vaccine is mandatory, at least parents have the chance to opt out.
When parental consent is removed, any mainstream medical do-gooder, who’s convinced by the CDC that he’s on a mission to save lives, can try to persuade your child to get a Gardasil vaccine. You? You’re just a parent. You can’t be trusted with this sort of decision, so you’re simply taken out of the loop.
Here’s how easily that can happen…
While the new California bill was being debated, a California teen named Courtney testified before a legislative committee.
Courtney said that during a checkup at age 15, the doctor asked to speak to her alone and her mother consented. The doctor then tried to convince Courtney to get a Gardasil vaccine, adding that her mother didn’t have to know.
When Courtney declined the shot, the doctor tried a harder sell on Courtney’s mother, telling her that without the vaccine, if Courtney were ever raped she could develop a potentially fatal cervical cancer.
Imagine how many thousands of young teens would have simply accepted the vaccine, potentially exposing themselves to dangerous side effects they might never be aware of.
Meanwhile, without parental consent, the state is picking up the tab for the expensive Gardasil shots, so Merck is potentially raking in millions of our state tax dollars.
I say “our” literally, because Maryland, the state I live in, is one of the 10 states that gives medical professionals the right to vaccinate with Gardasil without parental consent. Here are the other nine: Alabama, Arkansas, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Montana, North Carolina, South Carolina, and South Dakota.
Parents in these states should be up in arms! Taxpayers should be storming the statehouses!
You think Rick Perry’s Gardasil scheme was bad? That was nothing. He didn’t succeed. But a few hundred state legislators DID succeed when they very quietly gave Merck access to your kids while cutting you out of the loop — except, of course, for the part where they freely spend your tax dollars.
Parents in D.C. and the states listed above need to talk about this outrage with their pediatricians, school administrators, and — most importantly — their kids. Every child needs to know that if a parent is not present and a vaccine is offered, they should do exactly the same thing they’ve been told to do when offered a recreational drug: Just say “NO!”
