“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that, whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute a new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.”
“[W]hen a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.”
I hereby revoke my consent to be governed by those lawmakers who have taken it upon themselves to systematically deride the liberty and constitutional protections of those who make the informed decision, based upon their personal beliefs, to not vaccinate their children.
Thomas Jefferson made consent a requirement, and in fact stated that consent was a SELF EVIDENT requirement of just governance.
I don’t know what it will take for all those Senators in Sacramento to WAKE UP, but hopefully it will come before Senate Bill 277 goes for a vote before the entire California State Senate.
Since the authors of SB 277 removed an entire clause from the Bill SOLELY with the purpose to bypass the appropriations committee. In yet another sneaky, underhanded attempt to force the bill through the California State Legislature as quickly and quietly as possibly.
Dum tacent clamant: “Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori.”
The term parens patriae was explicitly stated in the Senate Judiciary Committee analysis. The state assumes its right as the benevolent decisionmaker for ALL children in the State of California.
SB277 would apply to all daycare centers in the state. This means newborns fall within its parameters. It will completely eliminate ANY choice by parents regarding vaccinations. This includes which ones are administered and when.
You will not legislate people into compliance.
You will not pull the wool over our eyes.
This is not about vaccinations. There are no current outbreaks. The extensive list of vaccinations is unjustified. There are risks inherent in any medical procedure, including vaccinations. The CDC itself lists these risks. It should be SOLELY up to the parents of children to make informed choices for THEIR children. Our children do NOT belong to the state.
Oppose SB 277, before its too late.
Californians, you must ask yourselves:
“If I am not for myself, who is for me? And if I am only for myself, what am I? And if not now, when?”
