“This bill, if passed, would require parents to obtain the signature of a ‘health care practitioner for a personal beliefs/religious exemption. MDs, nurse practitioners, and physician’s assistants can sign.
Naturopaths and chiropractors cannot. The signature will need to be obtained on a separate form provided by the Department of Public Health which states that the health care practitioner has provided risk and benefit information to the parent.”
Let’s remove the word vaccination from the whole discussion for a minute here. Let’s pretend this whole issue isn’t about vaccines at all, but rather about any other medical procedure. Got that picture?
OK so then tell me, what kind of political system, or medical system anywhere on earth would presume to make it a law for you to obtain permission to opt out of any medical procedure, which decisions are completely your choice in the first place? Permission not to get medicine? See what I’m getting at here?
In other words, this stealthily submitted and barely noticed bill is setting a dangerous precedent and may represent the beginning of the end for philosophical and religious vaccine exemptions in the United States — with mandatory vaccinations likely following close behind. Now that children, according to the CDC immunization guidelines, are required to have an increasingly suspect 60 vaccines by age 6 (with dozens of additional vaccines in the developmental pipeline) how can we stand by idly while their health and health rights, and those of all future generations, are being serious jeopardized and legislated away into oblivion?
Please help to spread the word about Bill AB 2109 now, before it is too late.
Assembly Bill 2109
