Vaccines in the United States are required at birth, for daycare, school and college enrollment, for military members, foreign adoptions and more. Why the big push to vaccinate ourselves and our children? Learn about the influences that affect our vaccination policies and about your rights related to vaccinations.
Alan Phillips, the nation’s leading vaccine rights attorney, speaks with authority about what shapes the vaccine industry and how it has become corrupted by money and power. He is convinced that vaccine policy law is “really a pharmaceutical marketing policy much more than it is a genuine health policy.” And he cites legal evidence to make his case. Consequently, his life’s mission is to help individuals understand their rights to obtain vaccine exemptions and waivers. Thanks to today’s conversation, you will better understand the big picture and be equipped to make a more informed decision about how to proceed when it comes to the vaccination issue and safeguarding your family’s health.
Vaccines in the United States are required at birth; for daycare, school and college enrollment; for military members, families and civilian contractors; for immigrants, including foreign adopted children; for employees as a condition of employment; for children in child custody disputes; and for international travel. What are your rights pertaining to what goes into your body? Is it possible to obtain exemptions or waivers from what is mandated by your state or health department? Alan Phillips, the nation’s leading vaccine rights attorney, communicates how to approach vaccine exemptions and legislative activism. He also gives the big picture about how the vaccine industry is becoming corrupted.
In today’s show, he discusses:
- how he got into this field (a friend’s child was damaged by vaccines)
- how he is the only attorney whose practice is entirely focused on vaccine exemptions and waivers
- how the decline of deaths from childhood diseases (100-125 years ago) preceded the introduction of vaccines (vaccines may have had an impact on the incidence of sickness, but not the number of those who died from it)
- how we receive conflicting information from authoritative sources: the CDC says you should get all recommended vaccinations and the Supreme Court in 2011 said that vaccines are “unavoidably unsafe.”
- how there seems to be corruption in mainstream medical world affecting the advice we are getting
- how top editors of well-regarded medical publications are beginning to say that we can no longer trust medical literature (that as much 50% of medical research is not reliable)
- Dr. Marcia Angel, from Harvard University, editor for the New England Journal of Medicine in 2004 said this. And the editor-in-chief of the “Lancet,” Richard Horton, has been quoted as saying “Science has taken a turn toward darkness.”
- how money is corrupting the system and changing it from a health policy to a pharmaceutical marketing policy
- why people are seeking vaccination exemptions – they are asking themselves: Are they necessary? Are they effective? Are they potentially harmful?
- the fact that vaccines do cause injury and death
- how the federal “Vaccine injury compensation” program was established by the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 and how it pays out money to those killed or injured by vaccinations. In fiscal year 2016, the federal government paid over 251 million dollars through this program. Over the life of the program, the government has paid over 3.5 billion dollars. “Not a conspiracy theory to say that vaccines cause injury and death.”
- how we can’t know ahead of time if someone will sustain an injury or not
- how vaccines are required not only for schools and day care but for immigrants, foreign adoptions, military members, international travel, children whose parents are in custody disputes, etc.
when exemptions are available
- how there is confusion about how the law works, so it’s difficult to opt out of vaccines legally. Sometimes it’s straightforward, but sometimes it is not.
- how the federal govt. does not have authority to mandate vaccinations for state residents, so we’re mostly working with state laws
- how congress won’t investigate information pointing to corruption in the CDC (perhaps they do not want to lose pharmaceutical funding for their next campaign?)
- why mainstream media won’t touch negative stories about vaccines (because pharmaceutical advertising pays the bills for mainstream media)
- the need to be skeptical of news sources (doctors and reporters are restricted about what they can report on)
- where to look to see what is required and what procedures are required to attain an exemption
- how to find out and do only what you need to do to meet the requirements for exemptions (which vary state to state)
- the types of exemptions: medical, religious, and philosophical
- how all states have medical exemptions; most provide religious exemption and 12-15 states provide a personal belief or philosophical exemption
- most states have exemptions for children, but not always for adults in the employment arena (however, civil rights law gives an “out” on religious grounds – and it applies to public and private employers)
- how the vaccine-manufacturing business is projected to double, so it’s a huge money-maker. Not to mention that… “when someone is injured by vaccines, they are potentially a life-long consumer of other pharmaceutical products.” [Thus, vaccinations are a financial boon for pharmaceutical companies.]
- how companies have received millions of criminal fines, so there is something going on there; they have been deliberately harming the public
- how there have been dozens of fines in the 100-billion dollar range and which companies have been found guilty of criminal behavior
- his recommendation to become informed and become legislative activists
