The Courthouse News Service has reported the results of an appeal case where the mother sued the school district and the heath district in St. Lawrence County Supreme Court in New York for vaccinating her kindergartner without her mother’s consent.
The state Supreme Court ruled against the health department, stating that the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act (PREP) “did not extend to a situation in which a governmental entity administered a drug without consent.” The health department appealed the decision and the Appellate Division concluded on Nov. 21 that PREP pre-empts state law claims, and overturned the decision. According to Courthouse News, the decision stated that during a declared public health emergency, “we conclude that Congress intended to preempt all state law tort claims arising from the administration of covered countermeasures by a qualified person pursuant to a declaration by the Secretary [of Health and Human Services].”
Essentially the Court has announced that the Federal Government can trump state law and violate a parent’s right to consent and force vaccinations during a “public health emergency”.
Let’s analyse the Federal Governments ability to protect the public from harm for a minute. The Food and drug administration is the federal agency meant to prevent harm and protect the public health. There was a declared public health emergency when the public was advised to inoculate their children against the polio vaccine.
“ But when first vaccines were licensed against polio, there were 50,000 children a year being paralyzed in the United States. And an admittedly imperfect vaccine was put out that itself caused polio, very rarely, and produced a lot level residuum of disease in this country.”
Any court decision that allows a Federal Government that deliberately deceives the public to inoculate their children against a parent’s informed wishes exposes children to further harm.
