• New bill would force-vaccinate all public school kids.
By Mark Anderson —
A bill with a disturbing title, the Vaccinate All Children Act of 2015, quietly slipped into the legislative bloodstream at a time when the evidence is overwhelming that most vaccinations are unnecessary and dangerous—yet school-age children are required to receive far more vaccines compared to how many shots kids had to endure even a generation ago.
This bill (H.R.2232), sponsored by two-term Representative Frederica S. Wilson (D-Fla.), “amends the Public Health Service Act to prohibit the Department of Health and Human Services from awarding grants to public entities of a state for preventive health service programs unless the state [and all its subdivisions] requires each student in public elementary or secondary school to be vaccinated in accordance with the recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices,” according to the Library of Congress.
In other words, no vaccinations means no grant money for grant-dependent public school districts across the nation.
And while the bill’s language provides “an exception for students whose health would be endangered by vaccination in the opinion of a physician conforming to the accepted standard of medical care,” a closer reading shows that such an exception relies heavily on the opinions of the orthodox medical establishment regarding whether a given vaccine endangers a child’s health. The establishment is religiously pro-vaccine.
Another notable item about this act is that, on most bills, Congress now provides a “Constitutional Authority Statement,” in which a constitutional section is cited to supposedly authorize a given bill. For this vaccination bill, the notation states: “Congress has the power to enact this legislation pursuant to the following: Article I, Section 8, Clause 1: The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts, and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States; but all duties, imposts and excises shall be uniform throughout the United States.”
One can only assume the illustrious congresswoman behind the bill believes it falls under the words “general welfare,” although any historian worth their salt will tell you that welfare simply meant the general security and tranquility of the early republic, not an invasive, risky medical scheme that clearly falls under the 10th Amendment and should be left up “to the states respectively, or the citizens thereof.”
Fortunately, at press time, this needless legislation, first introduced on May 1 and on May 8 shuffled over to the Subcommittee on Health (under the House Energy and Commerce Committee), hadn’t moved at all. But vigilant AMERICAN FREE PRESS readers should stay on top of this bill and make darn sure this public pathogen dies.
By all indications, this bill only applies to public schools, strictly interpreted. The burgeoning home-school movement may be a way out, as decentralizing education and moving toward a home-based, private education would help de-fang the vaccination regime.
