Dear VCC Members & Friends,
Medical Lobby Poised to Promote Mandatory Vaccination in Canada
As if today’s parents don’t have enough to worry about trying to raise healthy children in a world awash in toxic chemicals that contaminate our food, air and water, we are now threatened with mandatory medical treatment of our children in order for them to attend school or day care. In a direct attack on parents’ right to make well considered and informed health care decisions for their children, the board of directors of the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) plans to pass a resolution to remove vaccine decision making from parents.
Earlier this summer, a National Post headline announced, “Doctors’ lobby (CMA) calls for mandatory vaccinations”. The article goes on to say that the leaders of the country’s largest doctors’ group are calling for mandatory vaccinations “amid concerns growing numbers of ‘vaccine hesitant’ parents are spurning the shots.” The resolution will be voted on at the CMA general council meeting in Halifax, August 23-26. The 80,000 member organization is silent on the issue of philosophical and religious exemptions.
Following in the footsteps of its American counterparts, the Canadian Medical Association is moving to align its policies with the American Medical Association (AMA) and its numerous allied medical trade groups which have adopted hardline resolutions to eliminate parental choice from vaccine decision making as recently happened in California where parents lost the right to personal belief exemptions from vaccination for children enrolled in school or daycare. Their intention is to disempower parents and make doctors the sole arbiters of who qualifies for hard to get medical exemptions, often denied even to those who are vaccine injured.
A conglomerate of medical trade groups, sponsored by Pharma orchestrated the elimination of personal belief exemptions for school children in the most populated state in the U.S. The California SB277 debacle was led by Vaccinate California and California Immunization Coalition, a project of the Immunization Action Coalition that is funded by Astra Zeneca, BioCSL, Merck, Novartis Vaccines, Pfizer and Sanofi Pasteur and CDC. The American Academy of Pediatrics and California Medical Association, which are also funded by pharmaceutical companies, were among the supporters of SB277, as well as Biocom that represents Pfizer, Merck, GSK, Novartis, Sanofi, Monsanto and Kaiser Permanente. Other proponents of forced vaccination included an additional long list of medical trade and government employee associations that receive state and industry funding along with the Secular Coalition for America, which is an anti-religious belief lobbying organization with 50 state chapters. They are now aiming to impose their mandatory vaccine agenda across the country.
