BAD NEWS: NY Court of Appeals reinstates flu vaccine mandates for pre schoolers

NY COURT of APPEALS REINSTATES NYC FLU MANDATES FOR NYC PRE-SCHOOL CHILDREN
     Earlier today the New York State Court of Appeals, New York’s highest court, released an unanimous decision supporting a New York City Board of Health regulation from 2013 requiring annual flu shots for children in pre-schools and daycare regulated by the City, overturning a lower court ruling, and a 5-0 Appellate division decision, rejecting the City’s claim that it had the authority to impose its own vaccine mandates. No further appeal is possible.
     The City’s regulation applies to children age 6 to 59 months, and only those programs under the supervision of the City of New York. Many daycare and pre-school programs are under the supervision of the New York State. Children at state supervised programs are not bound by the regulation. The Court recognized in the decision that religious and medical exemptions apply to the flu shot requirement.
     The decision appears to open the door to local governments across New York State to mandate vaccines in addition to those required by state law. New York City now joins Connecticut and New Jersey as the only places in the United States, and the developed democracies, that require flu shots.

NEW YORK STATE-TIME SENSITIVE BILL RELIGIOUS WAIVERS FOR VACCINES

NY, MAKE 9 PHONE CALLS TODAY TO MOVE BILL A8123B, the bil that protects the religious waiver to vaccines. We have to light a fire under the Education Committee Assemblymembers who have NOT made a decision on the bill. While they may not be your rep, they make decisions that affects 20 million NYers. YOU are one of them.
They are:

  1. Catherine Nolan- 518-455-4851
  2. Earlene Hooper- 518-455-5861
  3. Alicia Hyndman- 518-455-4451
  4. Michael Miller- 518-455-4621
  5. Daniel O’Donnell- 518-455-5603
  6. Steven Otis- 518-455-4897
  7. Phil Ramos- 518-455-5185
  1. Sean Ryan- 518-455-4886
  2. Michelle Titus- 518-455-5668

Ask them, politely and respectfully, to support the bill that keeps kids in public school and respects existing law. Need more to say? See below:

  1. Children of families who do not have the resources/ money to hire attorneys or who do not have the ability to articulate in English are being barred from school and denied their right to an education. This translates to minorities, single parents, parents of color being disproportionately adversely affected.
  2. 46 states use such a accepted form, along with most schools in NY. There is no correlation between a high refusal rate and a standard accepted form.
  3. ‘Religious sincerity interviews’ are WRONG, a waste of money and profoundly offensive.

VLA COMMENT: (paraphrased from Ageless Wisdom):

Religion is the name given to the recognition by the “part” of its relationship to the “Whole”.  It is observed that there is a constantly growing demand by the part (individual) for an increased awareness of that Relation (God). Religion is the experience of the “seeking” aspirant to the “sought-for” Divinity. This archetypical drive towards wholeness (God) is natural to mankind, inherent in all individuals. Therefore,  Religion is natural and personalized foremost to the individual and out of that comes human systems, not the other way around!

“Every Church claims that ‘we are the true Churchand that they have some ultimate authority. We have the infallible Pope;  the inerrant Bible.

The idea that the Truth of God can be bound in any human system; by any human creed; by any human book is almost beyond imagination. God is not a Christian. God is not a Jew or a Muslim, a Hindu or a Buddhist. All of those are human systems which Human being have created only to help walk us through the mystery of God. We honor tradition. We walk through the tradition. But the tradition does not define God. It only points to God.

. -Bishop John Shelby Spong

“No one church, its representative or the government has the authority to define religion, to authorize, or substantiate an individual’s religious beliefs

Clarification of who is covered under the 1986 National Vaccine Injury Compensation Act

 

To clarify a few aspects for anyone who is still unclear on the court/compensation bifurcation of the 1986 Act:  Tom Stavola “Freedom and Ethics Alliance”

1. Any vaccine recommended for routine administration for children, or adults and children, is “covered” (must go through the NVICP). Shingles/Herpes Zoster vaccine is adult recommended only, and so one can utilize the court systems for this vaccine.
2. In order to sue in state courts, one must first use the NVICP. After the program has made a decision, the petitioner can choose to sue in state court. However, the 2011 Supreme Court Bruesewitz V. Wyeth – the unavoidably unsafe case – precludes petitioners from suing vaccine manufacturers for product design defects, even after going through the NVICP. One can; however, sue the vaccine manufacturer for fraud, for example.
3. In order to sue doctors in state courts, one must first use the NVICP, then you may decide to sue in state court with one of two claims: 1) medical malpractice; or 2) lack of informed consent. It’s typically almost impossible to be successful with either claim; however, you may have a slightly higher probability of winning “lack of informed consent” if one wasn’t provided the Vaccine Information Statement.
4. The 21st Century Cures Act pushes all claims related to death of unborn child into the NVICP, since this was a legal loophole prior to 2016 (which many were capitalizing on).
5. The proposal for amending the Vaccine Injury Table essentially allows the CDC – as Wayne mentioned heretofore – to direct any new recommended vaccines for pregnant women onto the Vaccine Injury Table. Thus, there will be no opportunity to sue in state court for new recommended vaccines, but if one experiences an adverse event that falls into the strict constraints of the vaccine injury table, your probability of compensation is significantly increased. Of course, for any non-table injury, proof of causation is much more arduous.

VLA Comment:  The 1986 act gave immunity to all vaccine providers and directed compensation claims to special masters at the vaccine court.  The funding for compensation and court comes from an excise tax to the consumer per vaccine.  In other words those who are potentially harmed are paying into the fund.  It is not funded by the manufacturers or government.

Iowa Supreme Court: Innocent people who plead guilty can challenge their convictions

 

Iowa Supreme Court: Innocent people who plead guilty can challenge their convictions

For the first time, the Iowa Supreme Court has ruled that people who plead guilty to crimes may challenge their convictions if new evidence of their innocence emerges.

The court ruled Friday in a 4-3 decision in the case of Jacob L. Schmidt, who pleaded guilty in 2007 of sexually abusing his 14-year-old half-brother the year before. Years later, in 2014, Schmidt’s half-brother began telling others that the abuse never occurred.

Utah Legislation: FREE RANGE KIDS

First Ever Free Range Kids Bill Just Passed in Utah

A new law set to go into effect on May 8 2018 in Utah will be the first of its kind in America. SB 65 (Child Neglect Amendments) will change what the state of Utah recognizes as neglect to eliminate certain innocuous and natural activities such as children playing in their front yards, walking to school, and otherwise being children.

The law comes as a reaction to a growing movement of total control over families and children being exercised by the state and local governments, social “services” agencies, and schools. One such example is a Maryland couple whose children were held by police due to the alleged neglect of allowing them to walk home alone from a park

The law works by redefining the term “neglect,” pointing out that neglect does not include the following:

  • “permitting a child, whose basic needs are met and who is of sufficient age and maturity to avoid harm or unreasonable risk of harm, to engage in independent activities, including:
  • (A) traveling to and from school, including by walking, running, or bicycling;
  • (B) traveling to and from nearby commercial or recreational facilities;
  • (C) engaging in outdoor play;
  • (D) remaining in a vehicle unattended
  • (E) remaining at home unattended; or
  • (F) engaging in a similar independent activity.” READ MORE…

STUDY: HPV-Pharmaceutical Companies’ Role in State Vaccination Policymaking

Pharmaceutical Companies’ Role in State Vaccination Policymaking: The Case of Human Papillomavirus Vaccination

Abstract

Objectives. We sought to investigate roles that Merck & Co Inc played in state human papillomavirus (HPV) immunization policymaking, to elicit key stakeholders’ perceptions of the appropriateness of these activities, and to explore implications for relationships between health policymakers and industry.

Methods. We used a series of state case studies combining data from key informant interviews with analysis of media reports and archival materials. We interviewed 73 key informants in 6 states that were actively engaged in HPV vaccine policy deliberations.

Results. Merck promoted school-entry mandate legislation by serving as an information resource, lobbying legislators, drafting legislation, mobilizing female legislators and physician organizations, conducting consumer marketing campaigns, and filling gaps in access to the vaccine. Legislators relied heavily on Merck for scientific information. Most stakeholders found lobbying by vaccine manufacturers acceptable in principle, but perceived that Merck had acted too aggressively and nontransparently in this case.

Conclusions. Although policymakers acknowledge the utility of manufacturers’ involvement in vaccination policymaking, industry lobbying that is overly aggressive, not fully transparent, or not divorced from financial contributions to lawmakers risks undermining the prospects for legislation to foster uptake of new vaccines.

Neglected Child for Religious Reasons (statute)

2151.03 Neglected child defined – failure to provide medical or surgical care for religious reasons.

(A) As used in this chapter, “neglected child” includes any child:

(1) Who is abandoned by the child’s parents, guardian, or custodian;

(2) Who lacks adequate parental care because of the faults or habits of the child’s parents, guardian, or custodian;

(3) Whose parents, guardian, or custodian neglects the child or refuses to provide proper or necessary subsistence, education, medical or surgical care or treatment, or other care necessary for the child’s health, morals, or well being;

(4) Whose parents, guardian, or custodian neglects the child or refuses to provide the special care made necessary by the child’s mental condition;

(5) Whose parents, legal guardian, or custodian have placed or attempted to place the child in violation of sections 5103.16 and 5103.17 of the Revised Code;

(6) Who, because of the omission of the child’s parents, guardian, or custodian, suffers physical or mental injury that harms or threatens to harm the child’s health or welfare;

42 U.S.C. 1396f. Similarly, although Congress granted HHS authority to conduct research, experiments, and demonstrations related to occupational illnesses in the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, such authority did not include the power to require “medical examination, immunization, or treatment for those who object thereto on religious grounds, except where such is necessary for the protection of the health or safety of others.” 29 U.S.C. 669(a)(5).

Summary of Content
39 states, the District of Columbia and Guam have laws providing that parents or caretakers who fail to provide medical assistance to a child because of their religious beliefs are not criminally liable for harm to the child. There is also no Federal requirement that a parent or legal guardian provide a child any medical treatment that is against the religious beliefs of the parent or legal guardian.1
At the time Congress passed the Child Abuse Prevention & Treatment Act in 1974 to create a uniform approach to child abuse, it deferred to the Department of Health, Education and Welfare (now Health and Human Services) to determine the religious exemption policies of the act.2 HEW mandated that the states adopt religious exemptions to child neglect before they could receive federal funding for state child-protection programs.3 Although the department adopted new regulations in 1983 striking down this requirement,4 few states have repealed these religious exemption laws. Most of these statutes require that in order for religious beliefs to be a valid reason for denying a child medical care, the religion must be a recognized church or a religious denomination. The Supreme Court had not addressed whether or not neglect exemptions for religious purposes violate the Establishment Clause.5

VLA COMMENT: Then why have judges forced medical treatments such as chemotherapy on underaged children such as those in the Amish community?
