Top 10 Reasons to Oppose California AB2109
Written by The Canary Party   
Wednesday, 20 June 2012 17:31


1.       Violates a parent’s and patient’s rights under the Nuremberg Code, the First Amendment, and the Constitution, and it threatens, and in some cases denies, the right to receive an education.

 

2.       The state has no authority to restrict or eliminate a parent’s right to exempt their child from one or more vaccines, or from any other medical procedure.  This bill oversteps the authority of the state.

 

3.       This bill is unnecessary as pertinent Federal Law already exists.  The 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act requires that a doctor thoroughly discuss the risks and benefits of each and every vaccine, specific to each patient.

 

4.       The Supreme Court has legally defined vaccines as “unavoidably unsafe.”  Each vaccine contains known neurotoxins, and each vaccine carries with it numerous risks, including grave injury and death.  Only the individual can make these risk-versus-benefit decisions.  No one is authorized to coerce or require people to participate in medical procedures or medical experiments. It is common practice to regard vaccines as benign and trivial, when in fact, they are serious medical procedures that carry serious risks.

 

5.       AB 2109 is not a bill that the citizens of CA requested. It is a self-serving trade-industry-sponsored bill with the markings of corporate influence, pharmaceutical funding, and medical professionals wanting to increase their profits through undue influence and coercion.  

 

6.       This bill will have a negative impact on our already-struggling schools.  This will be one more mandate that schools will be required to implement and enforce, versus focusing on educating students.  It will cost schools money in terms of implementation and enforcement, student absenteeism, and potential lawsuits by parents of students who are refused entry.

 

7.       This bill will not change anything. It won’t change parents’ minds who have researched vaccines and who have already decided to file an exemption.  It won’t change the rates of infectious diseases, as the author and sponsors of the bill readily admit that we are well above the rates that they claim are needed to achieve what they call “herd immunity.” All it will do is cost the state money and create increased cynicism, anger, and resentment among parents toward legislators, doctors, and schools.  This bill will call further into question the integrity of our nation’s entire vaccine program.

 

8.       The state of CA is in financial crisis.  This is not a good use of our legislators’ time, nor of taxpayers’ money.  Implementing this will force the reduction of needed services and programs.  It will also open the state up to related lawsuits.

 

9.       Without an easy-to-access exemption, consumers cannot protect themselves from known problems with vaccine mandates. Vaccines are portrayed as, and widely accepted as, safe and effective.  A cursory look into vaccines will show that those assumptions are not valid or correct.  Since vaccines have proven to be dangerous, even deadly, and since they have often proven to be ineffective, it should be made as easy as possible for a parent to exercise their right to exempt their child from any and all vaccines as they see fit, without government interference, obstacles, harassment, or coercion.  

 

10.    The author and sponsors of this bill refuse to require that a doctor must sign the form if a parent pays for the “counseling.”  They also refuse to elaborate on and specify what this “counseling” will include.  Therefore, there is rightful suspicion that doctors will not only refuse to sign these forms, but that they will embellish the “benefits” of vaccines while not adequately or accurately discussing the serious risks of vaccines.

Mitsubishi Funds Group that Opposes Preventing or Curing Autism
Written by The Canary Party   
Friday, 08 June 2012 13:43

Despite the many worthwhile autism charities desperately in need of funding, Mitsubishi Electric America Foundation (MEAF) has chosen to fund one that:

1)     opposes all efforts to cure or prevent autism, denies an increase in autism prevalence and now seeks to promote this form of “activism” among college students nationwide.

2)     blatantly violates MEAF’s own stated guideline: “We do not fund organizations or programs connected with a controversial social or political issue.” MEAF is funding a “neurodiversity” initiative by ASAN (Autism Self Advocacy Network) –  highy controversial in the autism community. According to ASAN, “The training is meant to prepare students to engage in self-advocacy and pro-neurodiversity activism on their college campuses.”

3)     promotes “self-diagnosis” of autism, causing students who may have the disorder to not qualify for college disability support services and national testing service accommodations, thus diminishing, not “enhancing” chances for academic success and future employment.  “Self-diagnosis” (without medical confirmation) of any disability, disease or disorder is an irresponsible practice and should not receive corporate funding.

4)     does not promote “full inclusion of people with disabilities alongside their peers without disabilities,” as called for in Mitsubishi guidelines, but promotes segregation of people with disabilities in extracurricular activities.

 

Please see the Canary Party Action Alert below and participate!  We’re all affected by the autism epidemic and by those who deny it exists and promote irresponsible practices.

AB 2109 Threatens Parental Rights, and Californians Aren’t Going To Take It

TUSTIN, CA - April 17, 2012 - The California Assembly of Health will be conducting a hearing on AB 2109 today at 1:30 PM in Sacramento.  AB2109 is a controversial bill that has many California parents in uproar over their parental rights.  AB2109 will force Californians to get an MD signature to allow parents to sign the CA vaccine exemption form.  California parents have been using the philosophical exemption for the past century for reasons against personal beliefs and as a religious exemption, as there is no religious exemption in California.  AB2109 will officially have a doctor validate whether or not a parent’s personal belief is worthy enough to get a philosophical exemption, essentially freedom with permission.  Many parents feel AB2109 violates their constitutional rights to exercise their philosophical beliefs exemption, makes medical decisions for their children, and it forces them to use an allopathic model of health care for their family, even if it is against how they currently seek medical care for their family.

In addition to the many concerns about violating parental rights, California parents are worried that they will run into issues trying to get the philosophical exemption signed, which in turn will affect their child’s ability to go to school.  Pediatricians won’t want to sign off on the exemption form because they won’t meet their quotas for vaccinated children to get their bonuses.  They will get reduced reimbursement rates from the insurance companies due to vaccination requirements, and they won’t want to sign the form because of liability concerns.  This bill will cause financial strain on some families depending on how many pediatricians they will have to visit to get a signature, and insurance companies most likely will not pay for the office visit to sign off on these forms due to the nature of the visit.  If parents can't get a signature on the form, their child won't be able to go to school without getting vaccinated.

“Most parents that choose not to vaccinate their child through this exemption, if not a religious decision, are extremely well educated on the manner, are sophisticated and savvy, and are making this decision in the best interest of their child.  I have been researching this issue for the past 15 years,” said Holly Blumhardt of Tustin.

Fundamentally, AB2109 violates Californians’ constitutional rights because parents are being forced to get PERMISSION to opt out of a voluntary medical procedure.  A doctor's signature is not necessary to prove that a patient has been educated.  If AB2109 is passed, it will set precedence for many other states and could eventually end the philosophical exemption across the board.  This bill could also set precedence regarding freedom to make other health care decisions as individuals and parents.
