We Will Not Give Up Our Human Rights for Our Civil Rights

The following is the statement given by NVIC co-founder and president Barbara Loe Fisher at the public rally against SB 277 in Sacramento, CA on June 9, 2015.

Mothers and fathers of California, you have come to Sacramento today to participate in our democracy and defend your freedom. You are here because you love your children. And there is no power on earth greater than the love we have for our children.

The right of the state to tell us what to do to our bodies or the bodies of our children ends where our right to protect our lives and our children’s lives begins. No liability free doctor inside or outside of government should be given the power to punish us if we choose not to play vaccine roulette with liability free vaccines.

We believe every life is important. We will not look the other way while those of us vulnerable to vaccine injury and death are being sacrificed in the name of the greater good. When the State considers one of us to be expendable, then we are all considered expendable.

We will not give up our human rights for our civil rights. We will not give up the human right to informed consent to medical risk taking in order to exercise our civil right to an education and medical care and employment.

We are the daughters and sons of liberty. And we will defend freedom of thought and speech and religion and conscience in this great country of ours because that is what it means to be an American. We will come again to this state Capitol and every state Capitol, again and again, to fight for our human and civil rights.

At the end of the 20th century, a small group of parents with DPT vaccine injured children launched the vaccine safety and informed consent movement in America. No matter what this legislature or Governor chooses to do, today is the beginning of an historic fight for the people and by the people for vaccine freedom of choice in the 21st century.

California, you are leading the way. What do we want? Freedom.

Our mission continues. No forced vaccination, not in America.

    It is not the role of government to dictate what they do with their own bodies. The day we give that up is the day we give up our own rights to Life.

    The government has no right to tell us we have to vaccinate! we are turning into a country that is not free anymore. Everyday our rights are being taken away from us and it is time for us to stand up and say no!

    I watched the Health Committee Hearing for SB277 and it became obvious to me that those who support AB 277 do not believe one word that we (those opposed) have to say. They simply dismiss us, our letters, our participation in the government. At one point the lawyer, Mr Fatherlee I think, was testifying and one of the Assembly Members rudely interrupted him and asked for his credentials, which were amazing. Then she dropped the name of some other lawyer in San Diego that was suppose to trump or nullify everything said in the Committee Hearing. Of course, this other lawyer wasn’t there, just as generally those who support SB 277 don’t show up in droves, nor write hundreds of letters, or sign petitions. The supporters of this bill are so arrogant they barely have to show up for the Hearings. They are so sure they are right they don’t have to listen to us. It’s truly amazing.

      this is a difficult sujbect to dicuss with parents who have their own strong truths- either way It is our choice and that is the way it should be. BTW, no vaccine guarantees that you will not get what you are being vacc. for. THere are drs that refuse to give their own children vaccines. Do what feels right for you and let others do what feels right for them it is not a question? of smart or stupid.

    It’s a sad day when today the government makes a decision to let all people feely marry, yet my own state of California decides as a parent I cant make a free choice on what I want done to my child. Why doesn’t our society recognize the reality of a Bill like this and how it takes away from our freedom and rights as Americans and where does it stop? Will we next be told that you’re too ignorant to decide what your child should eat so we’re going to now force you into feeding your child what we choose under a blanket excuse its for your child’s health. Is it so hard to see how ridiculous this is, as an American you can take my child’s education away if I chose to make an educated decision about my own child’s health? Instead of taking education away from children and taking away parental rights take all that money and effort and make immunizations safe, make immunizations single doses instead of 3 in 1, take steps to ensure our children’s safety instead of letting pharmacutical companies dictate how children are immunized, get rid of all the additives, then do studies to see how our children are affected if fully immunized vs. unimmunized, educate health care providers in when to administer vaccines. Its disturbing when it feels like our government is persuaded by the money making business off our children and won’t even consider the possibility that it could harm children and that a parent can make an edcated, loving decision for their child.

    Good to listen to an? open-minded dotcor! He’s however still under the influence of the programming he’s received, telling him that vaccines are good and necessary to combat diseases. In fact, all vaccines are harmful and completely unnecessary. This is also the reason why the call for green vaccines is complete nonsense. Getting a vaccine exemption for one’s child is the only sane solution.
