What you need to know and do about the CDC's proposed plan to detain, quarantine and vaccinate travelers who show signs of illness.
Since mainstream media rarely if ever reports on this sort of thing, you may not know that on August 15, 2016, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) published a proposed ruling that threatens to detain, quarantine, vaccinate and electronically track you, if you show signs of illness such as cough, rash, frequent trips to the bathroom, etc., while traveling.
NVIC's (National Vaccine Information Center) Barbara Loe Fisher, explains further in the video below. Read the actual proposed ruling, "Control of Communicable Diseases" and look for the link at the upper right of the Federal Register page to submit your comment before October 14, 2016. (You can also read comments previously submitted to help you in formulating your comment.) It is urgent that we ALL take action to oppose this proposed ruling.
Read "Control of Communicable Diseases" A Proposed Rule by the Health and Human Services Department as it appears on the Federal Register.
“This is a clear case of federal government overreach,”
The proposed law change particularly focuses on measles. “The ongoing persistence of measles in the United States provides a good example of the need for this NPRM,” states the CDC, and “every case of measles in the United States is considered a public health emergency because of its extremely high transmissibility.”
Press Release: National Vaccine Information Center Calls U.S. Proposal to Apprehend and Involuntarily Quarantine Travelers for Rashes and Cough A "Violation of Civil Liberties"
"If the NPRM (Notice of Proposed Rule Making) becomes law, it will affect American and non-American travelers entering the U.S. or traveling between states, particularly on commercial airlines and ships. The CDC is proposing to enlist commercial airline and other public transportation personnel to step up surveillance on and report "unwell" passengers with rashes, cough, diarrhea and other symptoms of illness." Read full press release.
If the NPRM becomes law, it appears U.S. health officials could hold a person in custody for 72 hours without the right to contact an attorney to appeal the detention. Detainees could be asked to sign a contract with the CDC that gives consent to the “public health measures” being applied to the adult or a minor child, which may include “quarantine, isolation, conditional release, medical examination, hospitalization, vaccination, and treatment.” However, the NPRM states that “the individual’s consent shall not be considered a prerequisite to any exercise of any authority” by the CDC. After release, the person can be electronically tracked and monitored, including by electronic tracking devices attached to the body. Read full press release.
"Control of Communicable Diseases"
A Proposed Rule by the Health and Human Services Department
“Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.”
Universal Declaration of Human Rights (Adopted 1948 after World War II)
Below is a referenced commentary on religious freedom, as it relates to vaccines, by National Vaccine Information Center's Co-founder and Presdident, Barbara Loe Fisher.
The Declaration of Independence begins with, “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights.” That Declaration was a rejection of oppression by a ruling aristocracy and the pledge that this country would uphold the unalienable natural right to life and liberty that belongs to every person.
240 years later, we find ourselves again fighting for freedom from oppression because we have allowed the rise of a new ruling aristocracy, an elitist class of privileged citizens who want the legal right to judge, shame, segregate, discriminate against and punish fellow citizens who do not share their beliefs. Nowhere is this truth more self evident than in the oppressive implementation of one-size-fits-all mandatory vaccination laws that fail to respect biodiversity or human rights and crush citizen opposition, in violation of the informed consent ethic and freedom of thought, speech, conscience and religious belief.
"Questioning the Safety of the CDC's Childhood Vaccine Schedule" by Rishma Parpia, appeared February 15, 2016 in "The Vaccine Reaction", a publication of the National Vaccine Information Center. Click here to read the full article with references. Excerpts appear below.
On the issue of vaccines, there is an abundance of dialogue on ingredients and herd immunity, etc., but what really is the fundamental problem at the heart of this debate? It is because state legislatures mandate vaccines, consequently denying individuals the right to informed consent—the right to make personal choices about vaccination for themselves and their children.
With respect to the U.S. childhood vaccination schedule, the number of vaccines government health officials direct pediatricians to give children has almost quadrupled in the last 60 or so years. In 1953, the CDC directed physicians to give a child no more than 16 doses of four vaccines (one dose of smallpox and five doses of DPT) between the ages of two months and six years. Thirty years later, in 1983, the CDC recommended schedule included 23 doses of seven vaccines (DPT, MMR and polio) between the ages of two months and six years...the CDC now recommends double the number of vaccinations by age six—49 doses of 14 vaccines starting on the day of birth—and a total of 69 doses of 16 vaccines by age 18. In 1983, the CDC directed physicians to give a child no more than four vaccines simultaneously. However, by 2013, a child could receive eight or more vaccines during one visit.
Below is a video commentary from Barbara Loe Fisher, Co-Founder and President of the National Vaccine Information Center.
"Humans have experienced two centuries of vaccine orthodoxy. That orthodoxy dictates that we believe vaccination is safe and effective and should be mandated by governments. It began with medical doctors insisting we get one dose of smallpox vaccine, and has exploded over the past century into a U.S. government dictate that every child get 69 doses of 16 vaccines. Vaccine orthodoxy equally applied to every disease, every vaccine and every person, regardless of need or individual susceptibility to harm."

". . . today in America, when we take the initiative to become educated about vaccination and infectious diseases, we are publicly labeled as “ignorant” and “selfish” if our newfound knowledge leads us to disagree with vaccine orthodoxy."
"In 2016, empower yourself with knowledge about vaccine science, policy and law. Be a teacher and pass that knowledge on to your family and friends and leaders in your community. You never know whose life you will save."
