“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.
"We come here today . . . in honor of our children; our children who have passed from vaccination injury; our children who've been hurt from vaccination; and children who stand to be hurt from this new law. Our stories matter. Our children matter; and we're tired of being dismissed; and we tired of being ignored; and we're not going to stop fighting SB277."
Parents honored their vaccine injured and deceased children and stood in peaceful protest of SB277; a law that takes away a parent's right to a religious or personal belief vaccine exemption for school attendance in the state of California. Listen to their stories below.
"No parent should outlive their children."
Today, July 1, 2016 is the day that SB277 goes into effect in California. SB277 takes away a parent's right to a religious or personal belief vaccine exemption. If parents do not fully comply with the current mandated vaccine schedule and additional vaccines that may be added to the schedule in the future, their children can not attend private or public school. Their only option is to homeschool or move out of state. What has happened in California, could happen in any state.
In peaceful protest of SB277 and to honor the many children and adults that have been injured or have died from vaccines, a rally and candlelight vigil is taking place in Santa Monica, CA today, July 1st.
Those of us who cannot travel to California today or to other areas where sister rallies are being held, can support our California brothers and sisters in mind, heart and spirit by saying a prayer and lighting a candle from wherever we are.
Please light a candle at http://www.gratefulness.org/light-a-candle/. Just follow the prompts to light your candle; and be sure to include SB277 in your message or signature so that we can search and see all the candles that are burning in solidarity with the SB277 vigil. The candle lighting process is simple, beautiful and free. Your candle will remain burning for 48 hours.
To view candles already burning, go to http://www.gratefulness.org/light-a-candle/, select "View Candles" and then type SB277 in the "Search candles" box.
Thank you for your thoughts, your prayers and your candles. God bless and take care...

"Modern Medicine can't survive without our faith, because Modern Medicine
is neither an art nor a science. It's a religion."
Robert S. Mendelsohn, MD
In "Confessions of a Medical Heretic" (1979) Mendelsohn goes on to say, "Modern Medicine relies on faith to survive. All religions do. So heavily does the Church of Modern Medicine rely on faith that if everyone somehow simply forgot to believe in it for just one day, the whole system would collapse."
Listen below as VAXXED producer Del Bigtree makes a passionate and powerful statement about the religion of science. I think Dr. Mendelsohn is smiling.
". . . You cannot do enough studies of these things (vaccines) to ever prove that they're going to be safe. Now I'm all about making these vaccines as safe as possible for people that want to believe in the religion of science. That's ok and that's why I'm here. Everyone deserves to have the safest product available; but you cannot do enough studies . . . You can never do enough studies to prove they're safe; so we're left with faith in a theory about vaccines. We're left with faith that the pharmaceutical industry is making vaccines for our health; not to make money. We're left with faith that our doctors actually look at these stupid studies they're doing and read them and figure out what's going on. We're left with faith that our pediatricians are doing their job. We're left with faith that you do need a Hep B vaccine in a day one old baby for their health and not for the bottom dollar of the pharmaceutical industry. So I have to say, with that much faith, let's call this thing what it is. It's a religion; and I live in a country that celebrates the freedom of religion. You can have yours and I can have mine."
Good, solid, well conducted science is important; however, I cannot comprehend how people choose to trust "vaccine science" when it contradicts what we see in hundreds of thousands of real-life cases. Scientific studies can be changed at the stroke of a pen and are only as good as the integrity of those conducting, funding and publishing it. The heartbreak of vaccine injury and death is real and permanent. Below is a comment from the mother of a beautiful, healthy toddler who passed away within 24 hours of receiving 7 vaccines. "Medical experts" ruled the child's death "undetermined".
“I have a difficult time with people hanging their hat solely on science. Currently there is no scientific way to prove that a child died from vaccines. There is no test that can prove unequivocally that the vaccines took the child's life. How then can we trust science to be the supreme answer? When a person dies from a heroin overdose, that can be listed unequivocally as cause of death. When a child dies from vaccines, there is no way to test unequivocally for a vaccine overdose. I struggle with the fact that healthy babies are dying within hours or days of vaccines, doctors are dumbfounded as to why the child died and don't have the resources to test and know for certain it was the vaccines so since they can't prove it was, then it must not be. If we are trusting in science for all the answers, why does it not provide all the answers?”
CDC Whistleblower Update: Truth in Media to Release Documentary on CDC Coverup of link between Autism and Vaccines MMR
Since September 2014, I have shared several posts about the CDC Whistleblower and the CDC coverup of information that links vaccines to autism. (Click here to read those posts.) This is such an important issue that affects the lives of our children and families, many of whom have been personally affected by vaccine injury, including autism, and death as a result of vaccines. With the pharmaceutical industry as their major sponsor, mainstream media does not give truthful coverage to stories that implicate vaccines; and they discredit those who do tell the truth. To get the facts, you must do your own research and seek alternative media sources.
Independent investigative journalist, Ben Swann has been investigating and reporting on the story of Dr. William Thompson, a CDC scientist who hired a whistleblower attorney and turned over to Congress thousands of pages of documents regarding a 2004 CDC study on autism and vaccines. On January 26, 2016, Truth in Media will release Swann's documentary exposing the corruption within the CDC.
"My name is Ella and I was harmed by vaccines."
Click here to learn more about California SB277 which "removes the personal belief exemption from statute for government mandated vaccines required for children to attend elementary, middle and high school public and private schools, child care centers, day nurseries, and nursery schools."
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."
"Knowledge is the Antidote for Vaccine Orthodoxy"
For a printed, fully referenced version of this commentary, click here.
Additional commentaries can be found here.
". . . 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."
Things you can do:
In "Why Do Parents Refuse To Vaccinate Their Children?", I shared a video presentation by Dr. Sam Eggertsen in which he talks about the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program and the Omnibus Autism Proceeding. Below is video of the VICP Congressional Briefing that Dr. Eggertsen encourages you to watch.
The pharmaceutical industry controls the media and our government as well. The congressional hearing that was scheduled to take place as a result of this briefing was "indefinitely postponed" and has yet to be rescheduled.
"Reform had been working closely with vaccine injury families since April of 2013 to put together hearings on the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. Although this briefing was held to educate congressional staffers on the issues surrounding the injustice of the VICP, it was also attended by representatives of the Pharmaceutical lobby. The following week, vaccine interests launched an attack on these families and the hearings. Days later, the families were informed that the hearings were being indefinitely postponed. The Oversight Committee will not commit to a new date for the hearings. Families believe that Pharma may have been successful in preventing the hearings form taking place altogether in order to prevent the pubic from learning of the corruption and inequity in the US Vaccine Program."
On November 7th, 2013, members of the vaccine injury community held a briefing for congressional staffers to present many of the problems in the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program in preparation for hearings in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Participants included Professor Mary Holland, JD, Head of Graduate Legal Studies at NYU and co-author of Vaccine Epidemic; and Rolf Hazelhurst, Father in one of the test cases In the Omnibus Autism Proceeding, and Assistant District Attorney General, State of Tennessee. In the video below, they present the case against the VICP and call for reform.
Vaccine injury affects adults as well as children; and with more vaccines in the pipeline and more mandates being proposed and imposed, there will be more injury and death. Watch this extremely informative video. Become informed . . . watch, learn, share.
In my last post, I shared the powerful speech that Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. gave at the CDC Truth, Transparency & Freedom Rally in Atlanta Georgia on October 24, 2015. Below is video of National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) Co-Founder and President, Barbara Loe Fisher, and the powerful and passionate speech she gave at the same rally.
As Michelle Ford of Vaccine Injury Awareness League (V-IAL) states in her introduction which begins at point 1:44 in the video, Barbara co-founded the NVIC in 1982 and for over 30 years has led the vaccine safety and freedom movement. Barbara is "one of the most frequently quoted non-medical experts on vaccine science, policy, law, and the ethical principals of informed consent. . . . She has debated more doctors on radio and television on the subject of vaccination than any other American."
NVIC's President Barbara Loe Fisher spoke at the CDC Truth and Transparency Rally on October 24, 2015. In her speech she spoke of the history of vaccine injury, the creation of the federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) and its failure to provide vaccine injured Americans with a no-fault non-adversarial mechanism for vaccine injury compensation and the betrayal by the U.S. Supreme Court of making the VICP the sole remedy for vaccine injury compensation.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.'s Speech at the CDC Truth, Transparency & Freedom Rally
Atlanta, GA ~ Ocober 24, 2015
(If video below does not play, please click here.)
I'm going to say one last thing to you. Frank DeStefano, who runs the division, the vaccine division, and who orchestrated this corruption; he is a criminal and he committed scientific research fraud and he is guilty of injuring all of these people. Now I'm saying that and I'm using his name; and what I'm saying, if it's untrue is an act of slander, and I want him to sue me. And if he didn't do it, he ought to sue me. He ought to file a suit this afternoon and enjoin me from ever saying that again. If somebody said that about me, I would sue them immediately and I'm saying to you, Frank DeStefano, if you didn't poison the children, you need to sue me right now and shut me up because what I'm saying to you is damaging to your career. So let's see what he does on Monday. Thank you all very much." ~ Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., CDC Truth, Transparency & Freedom Rally, October 24, 2015
