(NaturalNews) The medical establishment in California is quietly waging war against parental rights with a new legislative bill that will make it more difficult for parents to opt out of vaccines for their children. According to reports, the California State Assembly recently voted 44-19 to pass AB 2109, a bill that, if signed into law, will require that all parents who choose to opt their children out of vaccines for personal reasons obtain a signed waiver from a doctor of "health care practitioner" stating that they participated in an indoctrination session about the supposed health risks of not vaccinating.

Existing law in California allows all parents to exempt their children from "mandatory" vaccines for either personal or medical reasons. In the case of personal exemptions, parents simply must obtain a Personal Belief Exemption Form (PBEF) from their local health department's Immunization Program, or from their children's school, and submit it to the appropriate party in lieu of a proof of vaccination form (http://www.naturalnews.com).

But the California Medical Association (CMA), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the California Immunization Coalition (CIC), and many pro-vaccine doctors and assemblymen, including AB 2109 author Dr. Richard Pan (D-Sacramento), want to obstruct parental rights. Their goal is to make it as difficult as possible for parents to opt out of vaccines for their children in the hope that they will simply comply.

AB 2109 has received little media attention despite massive ramifications

One would think that with the drastic changes being proposed in the bill, AB 2109 would be all over the news. But that is hardly the case. With the exception of a billboard campaign arranged by the good people over at Age of Autism, the mainstream media has been largely silent on this important issue.

California has been a target of the pro-vaccine brigade for a while now as just last fall, the California legislature passed AB 499, which allows for secret administration of HPV vaccines (Gardasil, Cervarix) and other vaccines for sexually-transmitted diseases, without parental consent (http://www.naturalnews.com/033629_vaccinations_parental_consent.html). Now, authorities are trying to erode parents' ability to freely decline having their children injected with toxic, chemical cocktails in the name of "science-based medicine."

AB 2109 a 'first step' towards forced vaccinations

During arguments for why AB 2109 should be passed, Assembly Democrats argued that too many parents are choosing not to vaccinate their children, and that deadly diseases are making a comeback as a result. But as we have pointed out numerous times before, this ideology is flawed, as most alleged resurgences are occurring in vaccinated children rather than in unvaccinated children (http://www.naturalnews.com).

But the real kicker is how AB 2109 supporters alluded to the bill being a stepping stone towards eventual forced vaccinations. Assemblyman Charles Calderon (D-Whittier), for instance, is quoted by The Republic as saying that AB 2109 is a "first step" towards eliminating parental freedom to opt out of vaccines for their children.

The writing is on the wall, and it is time for health freedom advocates to step up and take action. According to California's legislative information page, AB 2109 is headed next to the California State Senate, and if it passes there, it will proceed to Governor Jerry Brown's desk to be signed.

Now is the time to flood Gov. Brown's office with calls, emails and faxes of opposition to AB 2109. You can reach his office at:
