Sorry FDA Commissioner: Vaccine exemptions need to be expanded, not eliminated


(Natural News) In a telling interview with CNN, the Commissioner for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Dr. Scott Gottlieb, stated that vaccine laws at the state level are "lax" and exemptions are too easy to obtain. Gottlieb said that widespread exemptions to vaccination may "force the hand of the federal health agencies" to mandate vaccines at the federal level.

Perpetual vaccine marketing, propaganda, and vaccine laws have not convinced hundreds of thousands of Americans to blindly submit their children to mandated injections. These pro-common sense Americans have weighed the risk versus reward of vaccines and have either delayed vaccination, chosen a reduced schedule, or decided NO altogether. They have either witnessed vaccine injury, reported vaccine injury, been compensated for vaccine injury (including autism), or have lost a loved one to "SIDS," a life threatening allergy, seizure disorders, or encephalitis (brain swelling) following vaccination.

Vaccine exemptions should be expanded, not removed by federal laws

Because of the widespread problems with vaccination, which are documented extensively by testimonial accounts at the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS), vaccine exemptions should drastically be expanded, not removed. Sorry FDA Commissioner, but you're doing a horrible job on public health issues, yet you are doing so well pushing the needless vaccines that your agency should be cracking down on. It's a surprise the President has not fired you after you publicly supported coercion in medicine.

Currently, children are not allowed to attend preschool or receive a public education if they have not been vaccinated according to state requirements; however, there are ways to opt out of vaccine requirements in each state. In forty-seven states, parents can opt out of vaccines for religious and/or medical reasons. In eighteen states, parents can additionally opt out of vaccines based on personal belief. Three states, West Virginia, Mississippi, and California, have removed all parental rights and only allow medical exemptions approved by a state-licensed medical doctor.

As the authoritarian FDA pressures states to limit vaccine exemptions further, parents must always remember that their child is not the property of the state and definitely not the property of the federal government. Every vaccine dose is a choice that requires informed consent. Because medical professionals are biased and sometimes coercive with vaccine administration, not only should they be required to give informed consent to parents, but they should also disclose their conflicts of interest and provide the full vaccine insert. Most importantly, medical professionals should respect the concerns and decisions of parents, especially informed parents who have witnessed vaccine injury. Medical professionals should never be allowed to discriminate against parents and violate medical ethics by refusing them medical care if they choose to forgo vaccination.
