We thought this was well-stated and worth sharing with everyone. We should all consider writing these letters on a monthly basis to our own representatives. Be heard!
Two bills concerning families and health are on the table right now. HB 4425 and 4426 support individual parental rights, health care freedom, and limited government. Our local representative, Daniela Garcia, opposes these reforms. Since she claims to represent Michigan families, let her show that support by reconsidering her stand. Allow parents to protect their child’s health without being forced to endure strong arm tactics that support big pharma profits and limit our liberties.
These bills would reverse a new rule imposed by Michigan’s Health Department to “re-educate” those seeking vaccine waivers for their children. This involves a special appointment and education session with a health care worker, and signing a rigid, lengthy waiver. Valid reasons for religious, philosophical and medical exemptions are all present in vaccine ingredients and the risk factors listed in manufacturer’s vaccine package insert.
Very few long-term safety studies exist comparing health of vaccinated with unvaccinated children since the drastically increased shot schedule of 69 doses of 16 vaccines by age 18. This isn’t the schedule we grew up with. The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 shields vaccine manufacturers from lawsuits when their product causes death or injury. And $3.6 billion has been awarded to children and adults in the U.S. since that act passed. By the time parents decide to get a waiver, they are already well educated on this issue.
Rep. Garcia is wrong to pressure them to change their mind. She should vote yes on these bills. (source of letter)
