Have you been watching the news lately? In the 18 years I have been advocating for vaccine safety and choice, I have never seen so much hostility towards those of us questioning that safety and our right to informed consent.
It appears we have hit a pharmacological nerve….
There is internet censorship being promoted by members of Congress. Videos, movies and books with information on the lack of safety testing and vaccine injury are being purged from Amazon, Google and YouTube. And, of course, the measles scare is back again.
We are a community of non-vaxxers, ex-vaxxers and cautious vaxxers. We are far from the ANTI Vaxxer and Terrorist label that is being thrown upon us. We have continued our message that vaccines are not 100% safe or effective and where there is Risk, there must be Choice (Informed Consent)
At the US House of Representatives hearing in February the Congressman from Kentucky questioned Dr. Fauci, head of NIH infectious diseases, about a known side effect of the MMR vaccine, namely encephalopathy (brain swelling), and asked if it could be caused by the vaccine. Fauci literally lied to Congress under oath by saying “No”. When the members of the public in the gallery gasped, and were admonished by the Chair, his colleague from the CDC interjected that encephalopathy was “rare”. The Age of Autism wrote a short article and included the C-SPAN video
The H.E.L.P Committee in the US Senate hearing “Vaccines Save Lives: What Is Driving Preventable Disease Outbreaks?” that took place March 5, 2019 is now available to view.
As I see it, if you wish to maintain your freedom to choose what health interventions are best for you and your loved ones, you must begin writing and/or calling every one of your State and Federal Representatives and Senators, the Governor, the Director of the Department of Health and expressing your desire to continue to have that choice. In my gut, I believe the mandates for adults will begin next year if we do not take a stand now.
Here is what else you can do to support our Statewide effort:
Attend the State House hearings with your entire family. Make note of the Bill committee assignments and use this link to check dates, times and agendas. If you can’t attend the hearings you have the option to send in a written testimony.
Bills we SUPPORT in the RI House:
House Bill – H5165 – This bill would reinstate the philosophical objection to vaccination.
Bills we SUPPORT in the RI Senate:
Senate Bill – S0300 – This bill seeks to ask Congress to repeal the 1986 Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, Subpoena Dr. William Thompson of the CDC and that all vaccines be classified as pharmaceutical drugs and tested accordingly.
Senate Bill – S0213 – This bill creates the Rhode Island Informed Consent Protection Act.
Senate Bill – S0303 – This bill would create an opt out for immunizations which protect against diseases which are not spread by casual contact.
Bills we OPPOSE:
House Bill – H5541 – This bill seeks to create an adult registry to collect all immunization information by the RI Dept of Health. You have to contact the Dept of Health to opt out. We feel you should have to sign a consent to be included in the registry. Update: This Bill is being heard in the House HEW Committee on Wednesday, March 13th, at the Rise of the House, 4:00.
