Newsletter 77 Coercive Vaccination Policies in Australia
In Australia vaccines are being incorrectly promoted by the government as being ‘safe and effective’ despite numerous articles in scientific and medical journals (and numerous editors of medical journals and books) contradicting these claims. The government website presenting information on immunisation also carries the disclaimer that ‘The Commonwealth of Australia does not warrant or represent that the information contained on this site is accurate, current or complete…..’ It also states that the information includes the views and recommendations of third parties and that it does not accept any legal liability or responsibility for any injury, loss or damage incurred by the use of the information on this site. In many European countries, for example France, there is much debate about the lack of safety and efficacy of vaccines, and many doctors are questioning their use and safety. Yet the Australian media is not allowing a debate of the medical literature on vaccination and pro-vaccine lobby groups are hindering public debate in Australia. Currently the Australian government is proposing a change to the legislation that will make vaccination mandatory for some employment situations and for enrolment or attendance in approved education and childcare centres. If this legislation is passed by parliament it will be effective from 1 January 2016.
At present there is no legislation or regulation under any Health Act that compels a person to accept the administration of a vaccine in Australia. Yet many Australians are being threatened with their jobs and childcare assistance payments if they do not accept the recommended vaccines. In 2015 the Human Rights Commissioner, Tim Wilson, informed the public that human rights can be infringed by governments if it is for a legitimate public health purpose, proportionate to the risk and done by law. Yet the Australian government has not provided evidence that Australia’s vaccination policies are proportionate to the risk and the public has not been involved in a proper debate of the mandatory use of multiple vaccines. In addition, some of these measures have been implemented even though they are not supported by any laws.
Currently vaccination in Australia is not compulsory and conscientious exemptions to this policy still exist. The new legislation being proposed in the Childcare Assistance package will remove conscientious exemptions to vaccination, including religious exemption where it is not formally registered by a religious group. The only exemption that will be allowed is a medical exemption recommended by a doctor. This infringes on our right to bodily integrity (your right to choose how you care for your own body) that is currently protected in criminal law in Australia.
If you are concerned about mandatory vaccination being introduced into Australia without a proper debate of the issues please sign this petition and attend the national rallies that are being organised in your capital city on 20 September 2015.
Cervical cancer is a disease that is curable if detected early and it is known that Pap screening can detect almost 100% of cervical cancer. However, even if the vaccine was proven to prevent some cervical cancer (still unproven) Gardasil vaccine could only prevent ~70% of cervical cancer because there are 13 other strains of HPV that are not covered in the HPV vaccine. There are also serious adverse events and death associated with HPV vaccines that are not associated with Pap screening – and Pap screening will still be required by vaccinated women.
So why is the Australian government spending $450 per person (3 doses) to vaccinate all girls and boys in school programs when Pap screening is a proven program that prevents more cervical cancer, is risk free and will still be needed by vaccinated women?
Has Mercury Caused One of the Worst Health Crises in American History?
During the past 20 years, the frequency of autism occurring in children has skyrocketed from 1 in 10,000 to 1 in 68, and the scientific community is no closer to determining a cause. Trace Amounts is the true story of Eric Gladen’s painful journey through mercury poisoning that he believes resulted from a thimerosal-loaded tetanus shot. His discoveries led him on a quest for the scientific truth about the role of mercury poisoning in the Autism epidemic.

Blackmail and the Medical Vaccine Exemption
Vaccine risks for you or your child can range from zero to 100 percent depending upon the genes you were born with; your microbiome DNA; the environment you live in; your age and health at the time of vaccination, and the type and how many vaccines you get. 1 2
Vaccines are not safe or effective for everyone because we are not all the same and we do not all respond the same way to pharmaceutical products like vaccines. 3 4
Our response to infectious diseases and the risk for complications can also vary, depending upon our genes, environment, and age and health at the time of infection. 5 That is why malnourished, vitamin deficient children living in impoverished environments, for example, are at higher risk for complications from gastrointestinal, respiratory and other childhood infections. 6 7 8
Vaccinators Do Not Know If the Odds Will Be in Your Favor
The doctor or nurse giving vaccines to you or your child does not know whether the odds will be in your favor. You may get vaccinated and have no reaction or your immune system and brain function could be severely compromised. 9 10 The scientific literature is clear about that fact and so is Congress and the U.S. Supreme Court, which have declared vaccines to be “unavoidably unsafe” and shielded the pharmaceutical industry from vaccine injury lawsuits. 11 12 13
Since 1988, there have been thousands of children and adults in America who have suffered brain inflammation and other long recognized vaccine reactions and have been awarded $3 billion dollars in vaccine injury compensation. There are thousands more, who have been unable to secure federal compensation for their vaccine injuries. 14 15
Vaccines Recommended and Given in Vacuum of Scientific Knowledge
But doctors and nurses are not taught about the genetic, biological and environmental high risk factors that could make you or your child more vulnerable to experiencing disabling vaccine complications. Vaccines are being recommended and given in a vacuum of knowledge and vaccine policymakers know it. As many Institute of Medicine committees have repeatedly pointed out in published reports spanning a quarter century, there are huge gaps in vaccine safety science. 16 17 18 19 20
Vaccine safety research is not a priority because long ago public health officials made a calculated decision that the lives of those harmed by vaccines are expendable in order to pursue what they consider to be a more important goal: the eradication of a long list of infectious microorganisms through compulsory vaccine use. 21 22 23 When vaccine risks turn out to be 100 percent for you or your child, you are expected to quietly accept that you are unavoidable collateral damage in the war on microorganisms. 24 25 26

5 Vaccine Culture War Myths Videos
The Vaccine Culture War in America: Are You Ready?
Almost No Medical Condition Qualifies for Medical Vaccine Exemption
This cruel utilitarian rationale, also known as “the ends justifies the means,” has been used by public health officials and medical trade groups to narrow the medical vaccine exemption so that, today, almost no medical condition qualifies as an “official” reason (contraindication) for a doctor to grant someone a medical exemption to vaccination. 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 At the same time, there are no good biological mechanism studies or large clinical trials validating the safety of severely restricting the medical vaccine exemption. But, then, there is no independent oversight on the quality and quantity of the science used to make vaccine policies and laws in the U.S. either. 36 37 38
Basically, the Centers for Disease Control now tells doctors that a medical vaccine exemption should only be granted if you are one of the estimated 320,000 children and adults annually receiving chemotherapy; 39 40 or one of the estimated 47,000 Americans who have had a recent organ or blood cell transplant; 41 42 or your child is one of the 40 to 100 children born every year with Severe Combined Immune Deficiency, known as SCID. 43
Once you are done with chemo, no medical vaccine exemption for you. Once you have recovered from your organ or blood cell transplant, no medical vaccine exemption for you. 44 And if you are immunosuppressed but don’t have SCID, the rarest and most severe of all immunodeficiency disorders, in most cases no medical exemption for you. 45
No Medical Exemption for Immune and Brain Disorders, Genetic Susceptibility
If you or your child are already suffering with autoimmune or brain disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, inflammatory bowel syndrome, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy or an immunosuppressive disease like HIV, no medical vaccine exemption for you. 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55
If you or your child have a family history of severe allergies, vaccine reactions, seizures, sudden infant death syndrome or serious autoimmune and neurological disorders, no medical vaccine exemption for you. 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64
No Medical Exemption for Sickness, Many Previous Vaccine Reactions
If you or your child are sick at the time of vaccination with a fever or on antibiotics, no medical vaccine exemption for you. 65
If, after vaccination, you or your child ran a 105-degree fever, collapsed or had seizures and symptoms of brain inflammation followed by serious health deterioration and you are still chronically ill but a doctor disagrees that your continuing health problems were caused by vaccination, no medical vaccine exemption for you. 66 67
No Medical Exemption for Pregnancy, Siblings of Vaccine Injured, Premature Infants
If you are a pregnant health care worker and do not want to get a flu shot while you are pregnant because you do not want to risk a miscarriage, no medical vaccine exemption for you. 68 69
If your child was injured or died after vaccination and you want to protect your other children from vaccine injury, no medical vaccine exemption for your children. 70 71
If your baby was born prematurely and is low weight and struggling to survive, no medical vaccine exemption for your infant. 72 73 74
Obey Liability Free Doctors’ Vaccine Orders Or Be Punished
For all practical purposes, the Centers for Disease Control and medical trade organizations now direct pediatricians and other vaccinators to deny the medical vaccine exemption to 99.99 percent of Americans. Although nobody can predict whether the odds will be in your favor, you are expected to obey doctors’ orders and get and give your children every government recommended vaccine – no exceptions and no questions asked – or be subjected to threats, coercion, discrimination and denial of medical care, education, and employment. 75
Like drug companies selling vaccines, doctors giving vaccines are protected from vaccine injury lawsuits. If a doctor vaccinates you or your child against your will and you suffer a catastrophic vaccine reaction, you cannot seek justice in a civil court of law in front of a jury of your peers. 76 Without accountability or liability, there is strong incentive for vaccinators to implement government vaccine policy and deny vaccine harm – but little incentive to prevent vaccine harm.
Eliminating Non-Medical Exemptions to Blackmail Americans
Now public health and medical trade groups are pressuring legislators to pass laws that would not only eliminate non-medical religious and conscientious belief vaccine exemptions for children to attend school, 77 but also would require children to get every one of the 69 doses of 16 federally recommended vaccines – unless a parent can get a medical vaccine exemption from a doctor. 78 This vaccine dragnet, which is already being applied to health care workers, is also pulling in childcare workers and teachers as proposed new vaccine laws threaten them with loss of employment if they cannot find a doctor to write a medical vaccine exemption. 79 80 81 82
Zealously pursuing a 99.99 percent vaccination rate and using very small groups of immune compromised individuals as an excuse to eliminate all non-medical vaccine exemptions, liability free doctors want permission from lawmakers to blackmail virtually every American into playing vaccine roulette. And they want to do this in the absence of sound vaccine safety science, even for those potentially at higher risk for suffering vaccine harm.
Philosopher and human rights advocate Elie Wiesel has said “When you take an idea or a concept and turn it into an abstraction, that opens the way to take human beings and turn them, also, into abstractions. When human beings become abstractions, what is left?” 83
Cruel and Inhuman to Last Degree
In 1905, when the U.S. Supreme Court in Jacobsen v. Massachusetts affirmed the right of states to mandate smallpox vaccination, the Court warned legislatures that it was not condoning vaccination of persons for whom the medical procedure would be “cruel and inhuman to the last degree,” adding that “all laws should receive a sensible construction.” 84
The inalienable right to autonomy and free exercise of conscience to protect bodily integrity trumps the right of government to use our bodies for any purpose, which is why informed consent to vaccine risk taking and flexible medical, religious and conscientious belief vaccine exemptions must remain a legal right in America. 85
Act Now to Protect Bodily Integrity and Free Exercise of Conscience
If you want the legal right to freely exercise conscience and protect your bodily integrity or that of your child when it comes to vaccine risk-taking, if you do not want to wake up one day and be forced to play vaccine roulette when you have good reason to conclude that you or your child are at high risk for suffering vaccine harm, you need to act now. You can be sure that the odds definitely will not be in your favor when it comes to finding a doctor to grant you a medical vaccine exemption.

Dr. Andrew Moulden: Every Vaccine Produces Harm
Canadian physician Dr. Andrew Moulden provided clear scientific evidence to prove that every dose of vaccine given to a child or an adult produces harm. The truth that he uncovered was rejected by the conventional medical system and the pharmaceutical industry. Nevertheless, his warning and his message to America remains as a solid legacy of the man who stood up against big pharma and their program to vaccinate every person on the Earth.
Dr. Moulden died unexpectedly in November of 2013 at age 49.
Because of the strong opposition from big pharma concerning Dr. Moulden’s research, we became concerned that the name of this brilliant researcher and his life’s work had nearly been deleted from the internet. His reputation was being disparaged, and his message of warning and hope was being distorted and buried without a tombstone. This book summarizes his teaching and is a must-read for everyone who wants to learn the “other-side” of the vaccine debate that the mainstream media routinely censors.

The recent “Catalyst” programs proved that the overwhelming of good gut bacteria by bad bacteria and viruses can cause havoc with health.This bulletin seems to prove that too.The way people are kept in the dark by vested interests in bed with governments and orthodox medicine, is just outrageous Published in the Lancet medical journal – it was not a scientific study – it was an observation of 12 children. Dr Wakefield lost everything for daring to say that
The measles virus is in the gut of all the children observed. He suggested that the vaccines for measles, mumps and rubella be given separately and not in one shot (MMR).
