The free world is getting less free. Sadly Australia has decided to turn up the heat on parents who choose not to vaccinate as well as further erode free choice in a supposedly democratic, human-rights respecting society. Italy has also followed suit with their own anti-freedom measures for parents who dare make a choice that goes against the prevailing medical establishment. Combine this with the continual assault on vaccine choice in America like what has been done in California with SB277 and you see a very disturbing picture of rising authoritarianism, decreasing control over one’s own body and children and declining human rights in countries that are supposed to be at the forefront of these things and set an example to other nations that are deemed dictatorships. A full-on assault on basic personal freedom is being hidden behind a thin veil of health safety.
It is high time that the portion of the public that care about freedom and personal freedoms that are at the foundation of a democratic society realize that the pro- vs. anti-vaccine debate is not just a matter of differing opinions on science or even personal feelings on how to take care of one’s health, due to the authoritarian measures being taken by governments on behalf of the powerful and rich pharmaceutical companies and being aided and abetted by the pharmaceutical-backed, comprised, conflict-of-interest plagued mainstream media, this is now a battle between freedom to choose what to do with one’s own body and children, freedom of conscience, freedom of religion, freedom of thought and freedom of speech – the kinds of freedoms that separate so-called democratic, human-rights-supporting countries from dictatorships that are looked down upon by those of us who live in the supposedly “free” part of the world.
Whether you are for all vaccines, some vaccines or no vaccines. Whether you like the idea of vaccines but disapprove of the ingredients or are opposed to the concept of vaccination and prefer more natural methods. Whatever side of the debate you are on, whatever your personal beliefs about health, if you believe in fundamental freedom you should be appalled at the increasingly heavy and serious measures against those who choose to not vaccinate their children as the government says, especially when there is real science that shows serious problems with vaccines, children who have really been vaccine-damaged, and families who have received millions of dollars for their very real vaccine injuries. Therefore, being skeptical about vaccines does not emanate from some illogical fear, mental disorder or fake anti-vaccine propaganda, but is based on legitimate concerns that could affect a child for life if that child gets a serious neurological injury from one or more vaccines. The government may deem that child and his/her parents to be good, compliant citizens but that would not undo the possible life-time of damage to that child and his/her lower standard of living due to being developmentally stunted and forever dependent on others for basic survival well into adulthood and possibly after the parents have passed away.
The very fact that you hardly if ever see a serious, fair debate with experts on both sides of the vaccine question on mainstream news networks is telling. When doctors are pressured in going along with the vaccines are safe and effective talking point, although there are real vaccine-injury statistics and payouts, when the vaccine-skeptic point-of-view needs to be silenced instead of debunked based upon an open discussion of the facts something is seriously wrong and when simply questioning the safety of vaccines publicly is seen as heresy as if vaccines are part of some science religion and should never be questioned instead of being part of an unbiased, robust debate on the science and actual effects of vaccines, all free-thinking people should ask “why”? If this is about settled science and not blind faith and if vaccines are such a powerful medical advancement for humanity and not dangerous concoctions that lead to illness then shouldn’t the science be able to speak for itself, instead of being shrouded in empty propaganda, that is not backed by honest scientific data, and deafening silence within the mainstream, public discourse on health and safety.
Here is an excerpt from the article: “Australian parents who don’t vaccinate their children will be fined $14 per week by the authoritarian regime” by Isabelle Z. on the Natural News website
If you live in Australia and want to exercise your right not to vaccinate your kids, you’d better be prepared to pay for that privilege. The new federal budget will see parents who don’t vaccinate losing AUD$14 per week, which equates to around USD$10.49 at today’s rate, from their family tax benefit payments. The measure will be set in motion starting July 2018, and it is expected to raise millions of dollars while punishing those who don’t want to vaccinate their kids.
Health Minister Greg Hunt and Social Services Minister Christian Porter have said that taking this approach rather than withholding a supplement at the end of the year would be a good way to constantly remind parents that they need to vaccinate their kids. It will also apply to families who do not get their four-year-olds a health check, which presumably is yet another way to try to push vaccines on kids.
Families who want to catch up on their vaccines will be able to do so for free under a $14 million program. The government will also spend $5 million to promote the benefits of vaccination in areas that have lower immunization rates, such as the far north coast of New South Wales.
Australia is a hostile place for anti-vaxxers
Most countries take a dim view of those who oppose vaccines, but Australia is a particularly unfriendly place for them. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s “No Jab, No Play” policy excludes kids who haven’t been vaccinated from going to preschool or childcare unless they have an official medical exemption. “Vaccine objection” would not be considered a valid reason to skip the shots under the proposal. Laws that prevent unvaccinated children from going to school already exist in some parts of Australia, including Queensland, Victoria and New South Wales.
Meanwhile, the recently updated vaccination standards of The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia urged members of the public to report any midwives and nurses who are sharing beliefs that could be construed as opposing vaccination.
