Should Parents Have the Right to Refuse Life-Saving Vaccines?

The country is currently struggling with six outbreaks of measles that are very contagious and potentially life-threatening to young children.

The outbreaks have occurred in children under the age of 10 — with the majority of the cases involving children who were unvaccinated.

Luckily, measles is preventable with the aid of certain vaccines, but many parents are refusing to get their children vaccinated. This has caused major concern among lawmakers who feel parents should not have the right to make such decisions, especially since the illness is both contagious and potentially fatal.

Lawmakers take a stand against parents

In fact, Washington state lawmakers have advanced legislation that would eliminate vaccination exemptions on personal levels by parents. It is argued that outbreaks that can be contained or controlled should be the responsibility of the government which must protect its citizens.

Parents, on the other hand, feel that they should have the right to decide whether their children are injected with medication that has yet to be verified of its long-term effects. Arizona has decided to side with the parents on this one. Arizona lawmakers are currently moving forward with three bills that will make it easier for parents to opt out of getting vaccinations for their children, according to The Arizona Republic.

Of the three bills advanced by Arizona’s House Health and Human Services Committee was the HB 2470, which expands the access to both religious and personal belief vaccine exemptions among preschool and grade school children.

The other two bills, HB 2471 and HB 2472 requires parents receive a booklet abut vaccine risks prior to vaccinating their children and require doctors to offer blood tests to determine if a child is already immune to a vaccine-preventable disease prior to vaccinating. Nancy Barto (R-Phoenix) who sponsored the bill stated that “it’s every parent’s right to decide the vaccine’s place in the child’s life.”

It was her argument that claimed there was research on both sides of the issue and that it was enough to provide parents with a leg to stand on when determining whether their children should be subject to vaccinations.

Parents fight for their parental rights

The issue of vaccinations has become popular as a result of the latest outbreaks. This has not helped parents in their fight to secure their right to bypass vaccines for their children. “There are so many reasons why I wouldn’t have my child vaccinated,” stated one parent who rallied for the passage of the bills in Arizona.

“The same way they claim vaccines have saved children, there are studies that show children dying from the medication. I’m not allowing the government to decide whether my child lives or dies,” she continued. Many parents are standing their ground on this issue because they feel that there is not enough proof that the vaccinations are capable of both saving their children from acquiring measles while preventing other problems along the way.

The same way that this issue has created a divide among parents and the government, now there are parents who are divided with other parents on this subject. “I am furious that there are parents out there who would allow their children to suffer because of their own ignorance,” stated a father who supports legislation that requires the vaccinations. “If it’s illegal to kill, then parents who refuse this vaccination should be considered murderers and should go to jail like most criminals,” he continued.

Currently, individual states are determining whether they will require parents to have their children vaccinated or not. This is a fight that goes well beyond the idea of merely saving children…it’s also about parental control vs. governmental control. It’s just a matter of who, of the two, will win. We can only hope that the children will not have to suffer along the way.

    This hysteria over the measles is misplaced. No one has died from the measles this year. In fact, there has been only a single recorded death from measles in the last decade, which occurred in 2015.

    In 2017, the Physicians for Informed Consent (PIC) reported in the British Medical Journal that every year, approximately 5,700 U.S. children suffer from seizures as a direct result of the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine.

    “For example, 5% of febrile seizures result in epilepsy, a chronic brain disorder that leads to recurring seizures. Annually, about 300 MMR-vaccine seizures (5% of 5,700) will lead to epilepsy,” PIC points out.

    As a child, I contracted measles and the mumps within months of receiving the vaccine. There is no study that proves vaccinations are more effective than natural immunity, at least that I have found. And I do a lot of research in this area.

    “In the United States, measles is generally a benign, short-term viral infection; 99.99% of measles cases fully recover,” said Dr. Shira Miller, PIC president and founder. “As it has not been proven that the MMR vaccine is safer than measles, there is insufficient evidence to demonstrate that mandatory measles mass vaccination results in a net public health benefit in the United States.”

    Mandating medications that are known to cause permanent harm to hundreds of children to prevent a non life-threatening sickness is not in the interests of a free society. No person should be forced by government regulation or societal pressure to receive any medication or treatment, including vaccines, against his or her will.

    “The rise of mandatory and forced vaccination legislation should send a chill up every single American spine. That government can force you to accept any kind of medicine and inject you against your will is totalitarianism at its worst! This egregious form of state power is metastasizing.” -Ron Paul

  2. these are not diseases they are routine childhood infections and it is past time for people to accurately make this distinction. what pharma appears to do is publish stats worldwide inflating incidences of morbidity and poor outcomes. I lived through the 50s we had all these infections my parents being close to local physician. I do not recall one incident of a child being hospitalized let alone dying. Pharma also outright lies about the safety of these vaccines and has the WHO publish absurd findings that vaccine “hesitancy” is the greatest threat to human population today. A doctor named Thompson involved in programs at CDC to falsify data resigned due to conscience although any fool can see graphs in tandem with increased vaccine scheduling and incidences of autism spectrum disorders. Also vaccine for MMR do not convey immunity as recent outbreaks of these and pertussis seem to cluster in those already vaccinated. Pharma knows this and can work on adjuvant free formulations which are available at increased cost to patients if they know enough to request them. Hospitals torture pediatricians who wish to desist making practicing even more difficult. they are especially hysterical about MMR and meningitis another illnesses I have know about 3 people to have had over the course of 70 years all surviving.

  3. vaccines have neurotoxins (aluminum, mercury, etc), as well as other toxic garbage (including formaldehyde) that can have disastrous effects, especially on a subset of particularly vulnerable kids. at least according to a former govt dr who was silenced & then fired, when he voiced his true concerns. this govt coverup was news a few wks ago on the big 3 networks. but u won’t find any mention on their websites. it was immediately buried. no coincidence since the networks rake in millions of dollars from drug cos. & a google search will only reveal sharyl atkkison’s “full measure” segment on the subject. & even if the the vaccines don’t do obvious immediate harm, how could they not affect u? this is a money grab by the drug cos, plain & simple. until they make vaccines w/out the toxic garbage, the only ones my family will get r for rabies & tetanus, & only when needed.

  4. The father who supports the legislation said a mouthful. If it’s murder when denying a child a specific med or injection, why isn’t he complaining about killing a baby anytime during the nine months ~ even at birth? You can’t have it both ways, sir.

  5. Should government have the right to force potential life-taking vaccines?

  6. Parents should have their right to not have their children vaccinated. Schools should have the right to not let these students enroll!! There are to many anti-everything idiots in a certain age group who would risk their child’s life because a moron said vaccines will make your kids sick. Ignorance knows no boundaries 🤬

  7. Parents who do not vaccinate their children should be held legally/financially responsible for the harm done to their communities. An in the event of a death attributed to a child that is not vaccinated, the parent should be tried for murder.

  8. THE MAJORITY OF THE OPPOSITION COMES FROM RELIGIOUS CRACKPOTS WHO REGARD MEDICAL TREATMENT AS SORCERY; IF A CHILD DIES IT IS GOD’S WILL, AND ALLOWING LIFE SAVING MEDICAL TREATMENT IS A VIOLATION OF GOD’S WILL; IF THE PARENTS OPT FOR MEDICAL TREATMENT, GOD WILL PUNISH THEM WITH ETERNAL DAMNATION IN HELL. THIS KIND OF THINKING COMES FROM THE DARK AGES, AND I AM APPALLED THAT ANYONE TODAY WOULD SUBSCRIBE TO SUCH NONSENSE.

  9. Many children have died or engaged with long term inhjuries orsicknesses.
    If you are part of agroup that forces my child to be vaccinated , you are expected to pay the price for it if he dies or is infected

  10. As a “survivor of a fairly severe case of measles, some 65 years ago, I’m here to tell you and others you are doing your children a great disservice when you do vaccinate them against measles, mumps and chickenpox before puberty. They are dangerous in adults and VERY RARELY for young children as well but in most cases, the child comes through in much better shape than the parents. In exchange for a few weeks of discomfort, your child has a LIFELONG immunity, without repeated booster shots for life; and his immune system LEARNS how to combat a live, healthy bug for future reference, when it comes into contact with things like TB, MRSA, Ebola, flesh-eating strep, etc. Vaccines are at best attenuated, usually dead viruses and certainly not “alive and kicking”; so your vaccinated kid never learns how to flex his immune system “muscles”; thus when he is faced with a real live and healthy bug, his chances of survival are a LOT LESS. And that doesn’t even touch on the toxins and other harmful stuff in those vaccines themselves, and the life destroying injuries or worse deaths they cause. The vaccine scam is just another of many to separate you from your hard earned money; not what you’re being told while you enrich big Pharma!

  11. Children belong to their parents not the government. The government should not be allowed to kill children nor should they be allowed to make medical decisions regarding children or anyone else.
    It will be a cold day in hxxx when the government ‘protects’ children or anyone else. EXAMPLE: 10,800 American children are raped every year by illegal aliens. This crime is 100% preventable, yet the government does absolutely nothing to prevent it.

    How disappointing you would run such a vapid, fraudulent article full of propaganda and no certified facts and evidence. I have noticed a lot of your emails go to my spam folder, must be a reason for this. There is no scientific evidence that vaccines work, it requires a belief in voodoo and only complete idiots who can not think for themselves buy into this black magic that has destroyed more lives than anyone will ever know. The unconstitutional kangaroo “vaccine court” has settled billions due to vaccine injuries, and that does not cover everyone who has been damaged or murdered. The bible warns about pharmakeia, or sorcery, for a reason and all christians should refuse to participate in this, for it is evil. Those who practice this are arrogant and claim to know more than God, which is not true. God has given us nature to care for and to receive healing from, and provided for all our needs. These sorcerers, modern day priests in white coats have usurped God and demand we worship them and obey them instead. They have declared a new inquisition and demand death to all who question them and label them heretics. Yet no one seems to be able to see what an irreversible, deadly, slippery slope this is.

    Do you really think those who have voted to allow newborn babies to be killed if it is ok with the mother, and/or abort them up until birth, care about your children? Only the most blatant cognitive dissonance could allow someone to believe that. They are deceivers, as is their master, the great deceiver, and talk out of two sides of their mouths.

    You claim to be a conservative mom? Try reading and understanding our founding documents, you are so way off it is not even funny. No one has jurisdiction or authority to violate our God given rights and the sanctity of our bodies. Even the Nuremberg trials declared medical tyranny criminal and prohibited. Our public servants are exactly that, our servants who are to protect us from tyranny, not declare themselves tyrants. Have you read any vaccine inserts, which are required to be given as part of informed consent? How is children and adults coming down with shingles due to chicken pox vaccines better than just being exposed to chicken pox and developing natural immunity, not false immunity which does not create real immunity?

    Congress and others are removing content from the web to inform people so their children are not maimed or killed, and you cheer them on? Have you even watched vaxxed or the truth about vaccines or other such documentaries? Have you spoken to people who have watched their previously healthy vibrant children die right in front of them? If you want to play russian roulette with your children, go ahead, but anyone who loves their children should not be willing to take any chances with untested unproven poisonous chemicals, fetal tissue and animal tissue. The immune system is actually damaged from vaccines and adjuvants and creates auto immune disorders and cancer, as well as allergies and all kinds of other problems.

    There are many articles to read and learn from. Here is one.

    How shameful and disgraceful you would support the continuation of the takeover of our once great Republic, now being replaced with outright communism, mob rule and a despotic system. For you to ask the question whether or not parents have any rights is an abomination, and you are a reprehensible traitor, and aid and abet the domestic enemy traitors who are in the process of destroying our country and all we hold dear. This is not about the well being of anyone except profits for the corrupt government entities who are completely compromised since they own the patents and profit from the very poisons they peddle. If this is not an unlawful and illegal conflict of interest, i do not know what is. This is about total and absolute control.
    If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever. George Orwell

    To all the cowards out there who will not comment, take legal and lawful action to stand up for your God given rights, or perform true due diligence, you are also aiding and abetting these despicable despots, who will destroy you as well. You have all been taught to worship the state instead of God, and obey at any cost, even the cost of your own children and you are so brainwashed and programmed, you have abrogated all responsibility and gladly accept the role of serf and victim. Our founders gave their lives so you could be free, and this is how you repay a debt that can never be repaid?

    The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance, which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt.
    (John Philpot Curran, 1750-1817)
    Your silence is your acquiescence.

  13. They actually mean life-altering vaccines.

    There has never been an official comparison study of the unvaccinated versus the vaccinated. That is because the vaccine profiteers know that the health, development, fertility, and longevity of the completely unvaccinated are far superior to that of the vaccinated. As a result of that knowledge, they have managed to keep that study from being done for more than seven decades. Without such a comparison study, absolutely no safety, efficacy, or necessity claims can be made.

    Robert F. Kennedy Jr Drops Vaccine Truth Bomb Live On TV

    “Big Pharma became a law unto themselves. They can put toxic ingredients in your vaccines, they can seriously injure your child – but you cannot sue them.

    “What you have to understand is that the vaccine regimen changed dramatically around 1989. The reason it changed, Tucker, is that Congress, drowning in pharmaceutical industry money, did something they have never done for any other industry – they gave blanket legal immunity to all the vaccine companies.

    “So that no matter how sloppy the line protocols, no matter how absent the quality control, no matter how toxic the ingredients, or egregious the injury to your child, you cannot sue them.

    “So there’s no depositions, there’s no discovery, there’s no class action suits. All of a sudden vaccines became enormously profitable.”

    The enormous profits in the unregulated industry meant Big Pharma companies raced each other to produce new and unnecessary vaccines to pump into newborn children – often dozens at a time.

    “It became a gold rush for the pharmaceutical industry to add new vaccines to the schedule.”

  14. If they choose to put their children at risk they should be required to sign a waver that the gov will not be responsible for their healthcare for either the preventable disease and complications there for. They should not be allowed in public schools. It is getting more common for physicians to not see unvaccinated patients unless Dr. prescribed to protect the rest of their patients.
    Many hospitals require workers who refuse the flu shot to where a mask and gloves and gown when they work.
    To be effective we need 95% of the people vaccinated to have herd immunity and to take care of the few that actually can not take the vaccine or it did not work.

  15. Oh please! I had every vaccination provided when I was a child and caught two types of measles and the mumps. Measles won’t kill you, but it is dangerous to a pregnant woman, so children with measles should be quarantined at home. Also, measles doesn’t require any health care. There’s no itching or other ailment other than the red spots.
