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?

Int’l Vaccine News: Italy mandantes, Germany fines, Sweden rejects mandates

Vaccine Injury Awareness Day /

Italy Mandates / Germany Considers Fines / Sweden Rejects Mandates

Secretary European Forum for Vaccine Vigilance (EFVV)
London, United Kingdom

May 27, 2017 — Saturday the 3rd of June 2017 is International Vaccine Injury Awareness Day. Demonstrations are being organized in cities all over Europe. To see the list and take part in a protest near you, please visit the official ‘Light a Candle’ website: http://lightacandle.eu/main, and while you are there, make sure to light the virtual candle by simply clicking on it. Many will also light real candles in their homes or in public places in sympathy and support for all victims of vaccination. Please make an effort to join us in this powerful event. Here’s why it is so important:

Just as Jackson State University in Mississippi USA published a study this month revealing that the unvaccinated have much lower rates of chronic illness than the vaccinated (https://worldmercuryproject.org/news/unvaccinated-children-much-lower-rates-chronic-illness-jackson-state-study-finds/), the Italian government voted a law making vaccines mandatory for school attendance and exams (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-39983799): a shocking breach of fundamental human rights! The law is not yet applicable but will be soon, so now is the time to protest vehemently.

The Germans are also clamping down on parents, not as severely as Italy but parents there may be fined for not seeking advice on vaccination for their children and daycare centres will be responsible for reporting parents who fail to seek vaccination advice, to the Ministry of Health: http://www.euronews.com/2017/05/26/germany-parents-face-fines-over-child-vaccinations.

The Swedes on the other hand have recently rejected 7 motions that would have promoted forced vaccinations. The Swedish Parliament decided forced vaccination policies are contrary to their citizens’ constitutional rights:

So: well done to Sweden and it’s a sad day for Democracy and Freedom of Choice in Italy and Germany! Let’s hope the Italian people can make their government withdraw this outrage before too many children become the victims of unnecessary harm, and the German government will decide against imposing fines and mandates.

Please attend a ‘Light a Candle’ event in your country!

Parental Rights Under Attack

Parental Rights Under Attack (Again) … This Time with SB18: Bill of Rights for the Children and Youth of California

Parental rights is a hot topic in the US these days, as more parents feel an increasing encroachment by the government into how they raise their family. Now, this ongoing issue between parents and the State has reached an all new level with the introduction of bill SB18, otherwise known as the “Bill of Rights for the Children and Youth of California.”

VLA COMMENT: TRUE STORIES…WATCH VIDEO

SB 18 Opposition Analysis

Here’s California Progressinve take on SB18:  Shouldn’t a bill that is supposed to be a Bill of Rights for Children focus on children instead of tax code?

EMPLOYMENT: NO SHOTS, NO JOB, HIGHER PREMIUMS, PENALTIES

North Carolina Congresswoman Virginia Foxx, a Republican, has introduced new legislation that, taken to its logical end, might eventually provision for employers to force their employees to be vaccinated under the guise of “wellness.”  House Resolution 1313, known as the “Preserving Employee Wellness Programs Act,” contains certain provisions for “disease prevention” that, should employees refuse them, might end up costing them their jobs. That, or employees could face penalties in the form of ostracization or even higher insurance rates.  READ MORE….

VLA COMMENT: California already passed a law in tandem with SB 77 which prohibits public and private education for any child that is not fully vaccinated.  This law targeting Daycare Centers prohibits employment or volunteering to anyone who has not gotten vaccinated.  This is virtually the first time that the government mandate vaccines for employment.

 

Harvard Trained Immunologist Demolishes California Pro-Mass Vaccination Legislation

The following open letter written by a PhD Immunologist completely demolishes the current California legislative initiative to remove all vaccine exemptions.

Read Letter….send to Legislators

VLA Comment: Clear and excellent.  Send en mass to your legislators. Dr. Tetyana clarifies the non-communicablity of various vaccines that are touted as dangerous to immunocompromised individual. She easily dispels this myth of contagion.
