Prominent Medical Doctor Strongly Advises Against Forced VaccinationVaccination
According to the National Vaccine Information Center, more than 1.2 million people in the United States are infected with HIV. However, these children and adults are not banned from attending school, receiving medical care, being employed, or otherwise participating fully in society. What’s more, the civil rights of Americans infected with HIV and AIDS are protected by anti-discrimination laws that guarantee and protect their civil rights.
Yet, after a small measles outbreak occurs at Disneyland, termed “deadly” by major media outlets but which has killed no one, suddenly America is at war with itself. Citizens are being pressured to abandon the civil right, guaranteed by the Fourth Amendment, to make informed, voluntary medical decisions about their own bodies and further, to discriminate against and condone extreme social measures against those who choose to remain unvaccinated.
This pressure has translated into a flurry of legislation introduced in recent weeks to eliminate philosophical and religious exemptions in 12 states.
There is good news to report on this unprecedented assault on American civil liberties. The states of Oregon and Washington, which have some of the highest opt-out rates on vaccination in the nation at around 7%, have dropped pursuit of pending legislation that would eliminate nonmedical exemptions for residents (1, 2).
But another huge battle looms.
The Federal Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has proposed a plan to ensure that all adults are forced to comply with the CDC Recommended Adult Vaccine Schedule.
This plan promotes use of all federally recommended vaccines by all adults; creates incentives for doctors to ensure that adults comply with the federal government vaccine schedule; and partners with employers, community groups, churches and other religious organizations to promote adult vaccination.
It is highly plausible that anyone who has a job would be force vaccinated or risk termination if this plan goes ahead.
It is, quite frankly, surreal to think that here in the United States of America, we are struggling to retain our civil right to refuse forced drugging by our own government. And, yes, vaccines are drugs in every sense of the word with terrible side effects and risk of death just like any other medication.
Fortunately, we have many heroes on the side of freedom in this battle. One such hero is Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez MD, an Ivy League educated and well respected oncologist practicing in New York City. He is also the author of What Went Wrong: The Truth Behind the Clinical Trial of the Enzyme Treatment of Cancer.
Dr. Gonzalez has written an eloquent and very compelling letter to Rebecca Fish of the Department of Health and Human Services on why the National Adult Immunization Plan is a very bad idea. Dr. Gonzalez has given me permission to reprint this letter here in full in the hopes that it will inspire and galvanize other people and especially medical professionals to speak out against this plan of forced vaccination of adults with grievous personal and financial consequences for those who refuse to comply.
Letter to DHHS from Nicholas Gonzalez MD
Dear Ms. Fish:
I am a physician practicing in New York, a graduate of Brown, postgrad work at Columbia, medical school at Cornell, fellowship in cancer immunology under Robert A Good, MD, PhD, for years President of Sloan-Kettering and the “Father of Modern Immunology”.
I have reached the age of 67 years old, had only polio and tetanus vaccines as a child. I follow good nutritional practices, am in superb health with no minor or major diseases past or present and no infections over the past 60 years except a rare cold.
I am very troubled that the DHHS is now trying to implement forced vaccination schedules not only on children, but on adults. Most of these vaccinations as you must know have not been tested either for safety or efficacy. The most recent flu vaccine as I have read and believe to be the case was tested for neither safety nor efficacy but got passed through the FDA, perhaps because of drug company lobbying.
I survived the usual childhood illnesses without a problem as did my many friends and schoolmates,and believe firmly as a trained immunologist that these mild infections helped my immune systems mature. I think this obsession with avoiding the usual childhood illnesses unnecessary and perhaps counterproductive. Even the dreaded polio, as it turns out through epidemiological investigations, was in most people a mild infection no more serious than a cold. Studies from the late 1940s showed that in urban areas up to 95% of the populations were positive for polio antibodies, yet with no history of any significant infection and certainly no neurological disability. Yet it’s estimated that up to 40 million Americans may now be infected with the SV40 cancer virus as a result of contaminated polio vaccines. Was this risk worth the grand scheme to inoculate everyone for a disease than in most, despite government hysteria, was rarely a serious problem?
For most children as in my case and in the case of all my young friends at the time of my own infection, these childhood illnesses passed with no serious or lasting deficits. However, the same can no longer be said about vaccinations and the damage they cause. For example, if vaccinations are so safe, why has the government set up a “Vaccine Court” to pay out damage claims to victims of vaccination related disability, to this date amounting to billions.
There is no question autism rates are skyrocketing. When I was in medical school in the 1980s it was such a rare condition my professors spent maybe 5 minutes on it, advising us we would most likely never see a case in our professional lifetime. Now, it’s estimated that perhaps up to 1 in 50 male children may be afflicted. Something is changing, and if it isn’t the explosion of vaccinations, perhaps you can come up with a better idea. And this belief the only reason rates are higher is because now we are so smart we diagnose it better to today is nonsense; autism, with its head banging and obsessive behavior patterns was as easy to diagnose 30 years ago as it is today.
Vaccines still contain aluminum and mercury, both neurotoxins, and no one has yet proven they are safe as adjuvants. I’ve not found that controlled peer reviewed study.
The recent claims of fraud at the CDC over autism rates linked to vaccinations raise serious questions about the integrity of government scientists promoting vaccinations.
Vaccinations must remain optional, for the safety and health of our children.
Objective scientific studies on the safety and efficacy of vaccinations, not controlled by the manufacturers must be encouraged.
Wishful thinking on the part of vaccination proponents claiming safety and efficacy often with no data must be reported for what it is, non-science.
Adults and the parents of children must, in this country of all countries where individual liberty is so valued, be allowed to make their own intelligent choices about their bodies, and about vaccinations.
Benjamin Rush, MD, one of the leading Founding Fathers, a great physician in his day, warned that government involvement in health care decisions was a danger, to individual and societal health. He helped design provisions, like the Fourth Amendment, to protect us from government intrusion in our bodies and our health decisions. You should take this seriously.
American survived quite well without mandated vaccinations for children and adults, and we will survive better without such mandates.
The government knows these vaccinations carry serious and dangerous risks, or they never would have set up the Vaccine Court. This isn’t that difficult a concept to understand. And if the government by inference acknowledges this as they do in the Vaccine Court, how can the same government then force us to be vaccinated putting our health and lives and the health and lives of our cherished children in danger?
There are already deaths being reported from Gardisil. The heavy promotion of this vaccination in children for a problem, cervical cancer, that is relatively minor and easily treated, is unwarranted and may very well open up the door to greater danger than the problem being addressed.
Please stop the drive for mandates. Though well intentioned such thinking is scientifically misguided, potentially dangerous, and potentially putting the health of millions at risk. If people want to undertake the risk of vaccinations, the risk of contamination with things such as the SV40 virus, if they’re ok with the the intake of neurotoxic aluminum and mercury, then great, let them be vaccinated. But please, for those of us like myself, a trained research scientist, who see no need to be “protected” but see reasonable danger in vaccinations, we must be allowed to avoid enforced intrusion into our lives, and our health.
Thank you for your consideration.
