California’s proposed vaccine laws will circumvent parental rights: Medical Freedom Group


State legislature quietly introduces new proposals giving government more control over medical system

Laura Sextro is the CEO of Unity Project, an umbrella organization that connects groups across America fighting against childhood vaccination mandates and for medical freedom and parental rights.

Project Unity is trying to stop several California vaccine bills from becoming law. Stro said the measures should alarm all parents, as the bill’s authors appear to be trying to squeeze in legislation that would erode the doctor-patient relationship, undermine parental rights and allow the government to go too far.

“I think it is an incredibly harmful and unethical extreme excess of the government to use bills like this as a mechanism to circumvent parents. And the unfortunate thing is that, by design, the elected officials who draft these bills are incredibly shrewd in the way they keep it low-key and secret,” Sextro said during a recent interview for American Thought. Leaders” from EpochTV.

Two of the bills to which Sextro refers are SB 871which would require all children aged 6 months to 17 years to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to attend daycare or school, and SB 866which would allow minors as young as 15 to receive vaccines, including the COVID-19 vaccine, without parental consent.

SB 866 also allows children as young as 12 to “consent to medical care related to the diagnosis or treatment of disease, if the disease or condition is one that must be reported by law or regulation to the officer. local health care, or is a related sexually transmitted disease,” the bill states.

“Most people in California don’t even know these bills have been drafted, let alone that they’re being voted on,” Sextro said.

As she looks across the American political landscape, Sextro said parental rights seem to have become the new battleground for what’s happening in the country and in the classroom.

Although healthy children are not at risk of becoming seriously ill or dying from COVID-19, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently issued official guidelines encouraging vaccination of children as young as 6 months old. , and many school districts are making vaccination mandatory for school attendance in the fall of 2022.

There is also SB 1479which allocates significant funding and other resources for COVID-19 testing in schools.

Target doctors, break trust

Many of the physicians most concerned about medical integrity who oppose mandates work with the Unity Project, including Dr. Aaron Kheriaty, chief medical ethics officer; Dr. Robert Malone, Medical and Regulatory Director; and Dr. Peter McCullough, member of the strategic advisory board.

During the pandemic, these doctors have been maligned for speaking out against the mainstream discourse on vaccines, calling instead for the use of early COVID-19 treatments, medical freedom, justice for those who have been harmed by the vaccines, and more in – thorough and accurate collection and analysis of vaccine data.

However, one of the new California bills would make it legal to target doctors like Kheriaty, Malone and McCollough and could strip them of their medical licenses so they can no longer practice in California. The bill is called BA 2098 and reclassify the sharing of “false information” about COVID-19 by doctors and surgeons as unprofessional conduct that would result in disciplinary action.

“I think this is probably the most egregious bill we’ve seen. It states that any doctor who goes against the COVID narrative will lose their medical license,” Stro said.

If this bill goes into effect, doctors would become an extension of the government and Big Pharma, as they would be forced to conform to the state’s narrative about vaccine safety and effectiveness to keep their jobs, said Sextro.

“I like to say this is the first step in dismantling the medical system. You dismantle the doctor-patient relationship and then you govern how doctors practice medicine. Physicians would no longer be free to engage meaningfully in the practice of medicine, as it was designed to be practiced,” Sextro said.

State control over the medical system

Another bill, SB 1464would require local law enforcement to enforce California Department of Health regulations, including all government mandates and policies noted above.

Sastro said 1464 is incredible because the Department of Health is not a legislative body.

“We are now putting bills on the books that would state that police would be required to enforce California Department of Health laws.”

Sextro also mentioned AB 1797which would make changes to California’s vaccination records database and “essentially aggregate all of your vaccination information into one big database,” Sextro said.

In his book, Kheriaty warns that these types of laws are the first step for the United States to have a bio-identity system in which the government could track people, increasing government control and reducing medical autonomy, said Sextro.

And finally, although the bill is on hold at the moment, AB 1993 would require all employees and independent contractors to show proof of a COVID-19 vaccination to work in California. The bill includes language providing for certain exceptions for medical conditions and “honest religious beliefs,” but does not indicate how these would be determined.

Stro believes this bill will be reintroduced by the California legislature at some point.

The Epoch Times contacted California State Senator Richard Pan, who authored or co-authored several of the bills in question.
