A federal judge in New York earlier this month (March, 2019) denied the parents of 42 healthy, non-vaccinated students, the right to attend the Green Meadow Waldorf School simply because they were not vaccinated for measles, even though no cases of measles had been reported at the school.
During the same time period school officials across the country in Los Angeles sent home 50 fully vaccinated sick students at Harvard-Westlake School with the contagious whooping cough. See:
These two schools on opposite sides of the country clearly illustrate the absurdity of vaccination policy currently being espoused in the United Sates: fully healthy non-vaccinated students are denied an education, while sick, fully vaccinated students are allowed an education but then sent home because they are too sick to stay in school.
As state legislators across the U.S. are considering new laws to take away parental exemptions to childhood vaccines, the very premise being put forth to deny children a right to education is the “greater good” of public health, with the assumption that unvaccinated students present a public health crisis because of the belief that vaccines prevent diseases.
However, the facts and science behind vaccines clearly show that this belief is not valid. Vaccines are not perfect, and in fact some vaccines, such as the pertussis vaccine for whooping cough, are not even effective any more.
While this fact is not even in dispute, the pertussis vaccine for whooping cough remains in the CDC recommended childhood vaccine schedule as Big Pharma seeks to develop a new vaccine to replace it.
The current vaccine trying to be mandated across the country is the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine, and this vaccine has issues also.
The Vaccine Reaction has reported that he U.S. Navy’s amphibious warship the U.S.S. Fort McHenry has been quarantined at sea for more than two months due to an outbreak of a mumps-like disease known as parotitis among its crew.
The ship’s crew is fully vaccinated with the MMR vaccine, and one of the side effects listed for the MMR vaccine is parotitis.
In addition, Merck, the pharmaceutical company that makes the MMR vaccine, has been fighting a fraud lawsuit in court for over 8 years against its own former scientists who developed the vaccine, and claim it is ineffective. See:
As Dr. Meryl Nass recently testified before the Maine Educational Committee, diseases persist today because of vaccine failure, NOT because of unvaccinated children. See:
Statistics analyzing these measles “outbreaks” also reveal that a significant number of those contracting measles are already vaccinated, and the MMR vaccine is a “live” vaccine that can “shed” and infect others with the vaccine-derived measles virus. See:
