The California Assembly Health Committee

Attention: Dahria McGrew,
Dear Assembly Members,
Many people around the world, including ourselves – your neighbors in Canada – are watching with growing alarm as California’s proposed legislation SB277 threatens to remove parents’ right to make voluntary and informed medical choices for their children. We urge you to uphold the international medical ethic of informed consent and vote NO against SB277.
Medical ethics are clear! In a free society, no one should be forced to undergo an invasive medical treatment like vaccination without their voluntary and informed consent. The basic human right of informed consent to medical risk taking is upheld by numerous international human rights treatise, including the Nuremburg Code, which SB277 contravenes.
You must certainly be aware from the many letters and testimonies you have received from concerned citizens, medical doctors, scientific researchers, legal experts and well informed parents, including those whose children have suffered catastrophic vaccine injuries, that the documented risks associated with the large number of vaccines imposed on children today include brain injuries, neuroimmune injuries, autoimmune injuries, and death.
Vaccines , as a special category of drugs are comprised of complex biochemical substances, including neurotoxic chemicals, which once injected, cannot be deactivated or removed from the body should something go wrong. It is antithetical to all ethics in medicine to force this risk on others.
Undoubtedly many concerned citizens have already informed you that both the U.S. Congress and the Supreme Court have stated that vaccines are “unavoidably unsafe”. You must certainly be aware as well, that the U.S. National Vaccine Injury Compensation System affirms a long list of vaccine associated harms, including death, for which $3 billion has now been paid in compensation. Is the state of California prepared to accept responsibility for increasing vaccine injuries by removing parents’ right to protect their children from vaccine harms?
How is it possible then to even consider implementing a forced vaccination policy which holds hostage children’s right to education in order to achieve a 100% vaccination rate? Even if California were to achieve 100% vaccination of school children, it would NOT prevent infectious disease outbreaks. It is scientifically acknowledged now, that both primary and secondary vaccine failures are driving infectious disease outbreaks of measles, mumps and whooping cough, and that viral shedding after live virus vaccines also spreads disease.
The proposed SB277 legislation is a creature of the misguided whims of policy makers unduly influenced by profit driven corporate medicine and should not be permitted to hold hostage children’s right to education. There is no room in a free society for a state-mandated medical dogma which all must accept.
We urge California Assembly Members to protect Californians’ right to make voluntary and informed medical decisions for their children, upheld and honored in all free societies. SB277 violates this foundational medical ethic! We urge you to vote NO on SB277.
