Mass fear mongering attempt to remove phylosophical exemption vaccination
Posted by: Panchito ()

Herd control to vaccinate everybody emphasizing group fear and minimizing personal secondary health effects (even death).



Remove 'philosophical' exemption from vaccine requirements for school entry

It’s all about herd immunity.

And right now, Michigan is in danger of losing it, putting everyone at risk of contracting deadly diseases.

Especially the most vulnerable among us.

Nearly half of the state’s population lives in counties with kindergarten vaccination rates below the level needed for "herd immunity," the public health concept that when at least 93 percent of people are vaccinated, their immunity protects the vulnerable and prevents the most contagious diseases from spreading.

There are more than 800 schools in Michigan with waiver rates so high that they’ve lost their herd immunity, making those schools prime targets for disease outbreaks such as the recent whooping cough outbreak and measles cases near Traverse City.

Those who choose not to be vaccinated and who choose not to vaccinate their children allow a breeding ground for diseases to grow and spread to others. They put healthy, vaccinated adults at risk because no vaccine is 100 percent effective. They especially put the most vulnerable at risk — infants too young to be vaccinated, the elderly, people with medical conditions that prevent vaccination, and those undergoing cancer treatments or whose immune systems have been weakened.

This public health crisis can be traced to the “philosophical waiver,” which allows parents to opt out of vaccines for any reason and still send their unvaccinated children to public schools. Due to the ease of opting out of vaccinations, Michigan historically has ranked at or near the bottom in childhood immunization rates, and it’s quickly getting worse.

Now is the time for lawmakers to eliminate that exemption, which accounts for three-quarters of all waivers, and strengthen the rules surrounding religious and medical exemptions as well.

All Michiganders bear responsibility for allowing this untenable situation to occur. Lawmakers are responsible for failing to act, even after an infant died of whooping cough in 2012. And citizens are responsible for not speaking up. Parents, it’s not enough sit around and grumble about people who don’t vaccinate. It’s time to press legislators to do their job and protect your children from vaccine-preventable diseases.

To that end, MLive Media Group has created a petition calling on the Legislature to enact the following changes to Michigan's childhood immunization requirements for public schools:

Remove the philosophical exemption. Allowing parents to opt out of vaccinating their children for any reason sends a strong and dangerous message that vaccines aren’t really necessary. Science tells us that vaccines are absolutely necessary if we wish to keep our communities free of these diseases. Eliminating this exemption would go a long way toward restoring herd immunity to our communities that are currently in danger.

Strengthen religious waivers. It’s almost certain that if the philosophical exemption is removed, a number of parents will claim certain religious beliefs. Therefore, it’s imperative that the rules be strengthened to discourage skirting of the law. Religious waivers should be signed by a representative of the parent's religious organization, asserting vaccination is contrary to religious beliefs. They should also be signed by a medical professional verifying the parent has attended an educational session about vaccination. Signatures should be notarized, and waivers should be renewed annually.

Strengthen medical waivers. A tiny fraction of children can’t be vaccinated for medical reasons. Removing the philosophical exemption could prompt more parents to seek unwarranted medical waivers. Therefore, medical waivers should be signed by a medical doctor verifying the patient has a true medical condition preventing vaccination, and that a parent has attended an educational session about vaccination. Signatures should be notarized.

Make vaccination rates public. Schools should be required to publish their vaccination rates on their websites, and update them every year. Just as citizens have a right to know which local restaurants are cutting corners and endangering public health, parents have a right to know which schools have high numbers of parents opting out and putting everyone at risk.

There exists a small but highly vocal minority of Michigan residents who firmly believe vaccinations will harm their children. And unfortunately, this group is growing, led by individuals posing as vaccine experts and bolstered by the state’s willingness to look the other way.

They are free to continue believing vaccines are harmful, even as the entire medical and scientific communities try in vain to tell them otherwise. But they should not be free to endanger the lives of everyone else with their views. Parents who hold these beliefs may choose to homeschool their children or send them to private schools if they are unwilling to listen to science.

Lawmakers who fear this group should pay heed to the fact that 80 percent of U.S. parents believe all children should be vaccinated before even entering day care. These same parents surely expect the same or better of their public school systems.

The overwhelming success of vaccinations is all but eliminating deadly childhood diseases has made us complacent. But the resurgence of certain diseases and the loss of our herd immunity should serve as a wake-up call. We must take bold action now to regain that herd immunity before it is too late.

Sign the petition, and spread the word.

The amount of Ignorance among the masses is overwhelming!

Here is my File Preview from my file on Exemptions for Vaccines:

…File Preview…
• …you can claim religious exemption in all 50 states.
• It is against the law for them to ask you *which* religion you belong to, on the basis that ANY religion can be practiced freely in this country. A religion, by definition, is a leader that has two or more followers. You do not have to say what religion you are a part of.
• …exemptions exist in each state. There are religious exemptions, medical exemptions, and some states offer what is known as a philosophical or personal belief exemption.
• 1. No one, nowhere, no time, and under no circumstances has the right or power in this country to immunize you or your children against your will and conviction. If they attempt to do so, you can legally charge them with "assault with a deadly weapon" and have the full resources of our laws behind you.
• 2. At all times in attempting to avoid unwanted immunization, you have the Law of the Land behind you. Those who would try to vaccinate you against your will are on very shaky ground. Into every compulsory immunization law in America are written legal exceptions and waivers which are there specifically to protect you from the attempted tyranny of officialdom. It is not only your right, but your obligation to use them, if this is what your conscience tells you.
• Rule No. 2: There are no compulsory vaccination laws. All are voluntary, and you are held responsible for the adverse results upon you or your children.
• Rule No. 3: Know your own state law so that you can conform to its exact requirements for exemption.
• Article 4 There are two basic reasons for exception - medical or religious. Which one you choose will often depend upon the wording of the law in your state and your personal convictions.
• The two most valid reasons for medical waiver are "the fear of allergic reaction in a sensitive child" and "to prevent possible damage to a weakened immune system." Both of these can occur in a child who has been immunized, and since no one but the physician and the parent will be held responsible for their consequences, it is up to them to protect the child
• Rule No. 4: Medical waivers are always valid but must be written to fit each state law and often need to be renewed annually.
• Article 5 Most people will be best served by a religious exemption unless the state law is so restrictive as to make this nearly impossible to obtain. The only church that is legally opposed to vaccination is the Christian Science Church. They took the matter to the courts and obtained a legal ruling of exemption. It is because of this that state laws recognize the religious exemption.
• Another church, The Church of Illumination is also by its tenets opposed to immunization for its adherents, and they are encouraged to go to jail if necessary before submitting to this procedure. Since it is a "Church at Large," they are able to enroll members throughout the entire United States and would be pleased to consider any applicant who is without present church affiliation and who desires the legitimate support of others in his convictions.
• The general desire of most health officials is to exert as much control as possible, while assuming as little responsibility as possible. If you place them in a position in which they must either give you a waiver or assume additional responsibility, you will usually get your waiver.
• Rule No. 5: Waivers can usually be obtained by a letter from a church official certifying that you are a member of a church that recommends against immunizations for its adherents. Many states will also allow exemption on religious grounds if you send them a notarized letter stating that you ADHERE to the beliefs of such a church, even if you are not an official member.
• Article 6 The foregoing may work for school exemptions, but are there any such waivers in the Armed Forces? Yes, all branches of the Service provide "immunization waivers." Again, if they did not, you could sue them for millions of dollars if a reaction occurred from their immunizations. Because of these waiver provisions you become responsible if you react.
• When you first sign up or enlist, you must state your objection to the vaccinations and tell whether it is "religious conscience" or medical reasons, such as allergies or a low tolerance to medication of any kind. If you do not show objection at this time, you have given the military the right to do what they will with you. If there is any difficulty, the same rules apply here as in the school program. Never forget, even though you may be in the Service, no one has the right to immunize you against your will. You do not give up your constitutional rights when you join the Armed Forces.
• Rule No. 6: The rules that govern school vaccination exemption also apply to the military. Never let anyone tell you otherwise. They do not know, or are hiding the facts of the law.
• "No one will vaccinate you against your will because by doing so they assume full responsibility for the consequences both legal and medical."
• Rule No. 7: You may travel wherever you wish in the world without vaccination. The worst that can happen is that in very rare circumstances you may be detained temporarily.
• Some Important Details The above seven articles constitute all the basic rules. However, there are many important little "tricks of the trade" to having your legal requests honored. These will now be discussed.
• 1. You must send a letter to the school to inform the education officials of your stand. A phone call is not legal. It can be a note from your doctor, minister, or a notarized letter from you stating your sincere objections to the immunization. If you do not do this and fail to have your child immunized, it could be construed as negligence on your part and in some states there is a possibility of legal action against you.
• 2. If the school should refuse to honor your letter, request that they give you a statement in writing outlining their reasons for refusal. If they won't, their refusal is legally invalid, and your letter stands; they must enroll your child. If they do (they rarely will), they take the risk of incriminating themselves, especially if they are acting contrary (as is common) to what is specified in the law concerning your rights for exemption. Remember they are on tenuous ground, not you. They are your servants, not you theirs.
• 3. Child neglect is the one legal point you want to avoid at all costs. No legal parent or guardian can be charged with neglect unless he shows complete lack of concern or action to be more informed. Stripped of legal jargon, this simply means that if you can show that you have investigated the situation, have come to a specific decision concerning immunizations, and have informed the authorities of the same, no neglect charge can be brought. Neglect can be brought only when it can be shown that you have failed to have your children immunized, not out of respect for their medical or spiritual integrity, but only because you were too concerned with other matters.
• 4. At times there may be a question of whether you have given or withdrawn legal consent. Legal consent is dependent upon being properly informed on both the advantages and the risks in any choice or decision you make. In other words, if a physician were to tell you that vaccination is perfectly safe and effective to obtain your consent, such consent would not be legal because he lied and you have not been properly informed. Conversely, it could be argued that nonconsent is not legal if you are not fully informed about the risks and advantages of immunizations.
• 5. What do I do if everyone refuses to give me a waiver?
This would be an extremely rare circumstance, but should it happen, you are not left without resources. Here is where we pull out one of our big guns. Send notarized letters by certified mail to the vaccine laboratory which makes the shot (ask your doctor for the address), the doctor who is to administer the shot, your school principal, the school board, and your local health department. In these letters make it clear that, since they have refused to give you a duly requested waiver, you can no longer be held responsible for what may happen to your child, if they force these shots upon him. You then state that you will allow immunization if each will present you with a written signed guarantee of safety and effectiveness of the vaccine and that they will consent to assume full responsibility for any and all adverse reactions that your child may develop from the required shots. Of course none will give you such a guarantee. They cannot do so because all vaccines are considered potentially highly toxic. We have yet to hear of an instance of further harassment of parents after such letters have been sent.
• Potpourri of Ammunition There were several good tips in Mrs. Girdwain's original manuscript which were not included in the body of this thesis, but are too good to omit, and so we have placed them here for your perusal.
• "As long as each individual who opposes vaccines has sincere Objections, states them in writing, and signs his name - it is considered legal and proper action and must therefore be honored."
• "Since many medical controversies exist surrounding immunization, drugs, and various other medications, it mandates that each individual have the right to control his own decisions and freedom of choice; anything less would be contrary to the constitutional laws that protect the citizens' rights."
• "When you deal with school officials and lawyers, you are playing with legal terminology - move the wrong words around and you get hung." The terminology used in this booklet has worked before and should again.
• "It is important to state your objections in such a way that it complies with your state's exemption provisions. They must then accept your request; if they do not, they are breaking their own law." That is why it is absolutely essential that you know your own state law word for word before submitting your objection."
• "According to CDC (the federal Communicable Disease Center in Atlanta, Georgia), physicians are required to first inform their patients of the risks involved before they consent to vaccines." If they do not do so, it is prima facie evidence of deceit or negligence on the part of the physician. This regulation by the federal government would also seem to assume that the patient has the right to refuse if he feels that the risks are too great. If this is so, is not the federal government on record as supporting voluntary immunization and, by obvious implication, against state-enforced compulsory immunization?"
• Should you ever have to go to court, or what is more likely, to appear before a "kangaroo" court of school and health department officials, here is some class A evidence you might find useful to mention.
• No vaccine carries any guarantee of protection from the laboratory that produced it or the doctor who administered it. The U.S. military allows no-nonsense "immunizations waivers." There is NO FEDERAL LAW on immunizations. They don't dare. Their lawyers know the consequences. Your rights have been infringed upon by officials attempting to use force against your will.
• Most state officials like a nice unstressful job. When you send in your objections and refuse to fit their ordered world by not having your children immunized, you make waves. This rocks their quiet existence, and there are only two ways their life can become orderly again either by forcing you to their will or acquiescing to yours. What you must do to obtain an early waiver is to make the latter the easiest path for them.
• At first, however, an attempt will usually be made to bend you to their will by some form of intimidation. Many uninformed parents give in to this tack, and so it is tried again and again. If you are adequately informed, as a reader of this publication should be, you will let the officials know in no uncertain terms that you understand your rights under the law and will not stand for any such shilly-shallying. Invariably, once they discover you are adamant and acquainted with the state law, your waiver will be rapidly forthcoming.
• A Final Word While the situation we are discussing here can be a matter of life and death, you never want to lose your sense of humor. Let the opposition huff and puff; you hold all the trump cards. If you observe the few simple suggestions made here, the law is all on your side. You are the good guys; they the villains. You wear the white hats; they, the black. Even in late 20th century America the just will triumph under the law. They have only trickery, lies, and intimidation; justice, truth, and honor lie entirely with you. So have fun and bless God every day for placing you under the Free American System.
• Section 665.510 Objection of Parent or Legal Guardian
• Parent or legal guardian of a student may object to health examinations, immunizations, vision, and hearing screening tests, and dental health examinations for their children on religious grounds. If a religious objection is made, a written and signed statement from the parent or legal guardian detailing such objections must be presented to the local school authority. General philosophical or moral reluctance to allow physical examinations, immunizations, vision and hearing screening, and dental examinations will not provide a sufficient basis for an exception to statutory requirements. The parent or legal guardian must be informed by the local school authority of measles outbreak control exclusion procedures per IDPH rules. The Control of Communicable Diseases (77 Ill. Adm. Code 690) at the time such objection is presented.
• Section 665.520 Medical Objections a) Any medical objections to an immunization must be: 1) Made by a physician licensed to practice medicine in all its branches indicating what the medical condition is. 2) Endorsed and signed by the physician on the certificate of child health examination and placed on file in the child's permanent record.
• b) Should the condition of the child later permit immunization, this requirement will then have to be met. Parents or legal guardians must be informed of measles outbreak control exclusion procedures when such objection is presented per Section 665.510.

• The World Health Organization, Geneva, is the responsible body for the International Sanitary Regulations. It is clear in Article 83, for all those countries that accept the International Sanitary Regulations, that "objectors to vaccination can refuse the operations without being refused admission into those countries which have accepted the International Sanitary Regulations."
• ...Article 83. He states that, "This international by-law gives anyone the right to go around the world by using the medical surveillance for 15 days, not to be isolated but to go freely."
• It would have been better to tell them the truth, that they could rely on Article 83 of the World Health Organization and go freely in other countries, as long as they let the health officials know of their whereabouts.
