(NaturalNews) Whether their respective governments recognize it or not, every human being on the planet possesses a fundamental, God-given right to choose his or her own medical care, including the decision of whether or not to be vaccinated. And a growing grassroots movement known as the American Rally for Personal Rights (ARPR) wants people everywhere to know and own this right, particularly as it pertains to the growing vaccination debate.
At an inaugural 2010 rally that took place in Chicago's Grant Park, ARPR invited guest speakers from academia, the military, the public health sector, business, government, medicine and law to share their own stories and perspectives on vaccinations. The ultimate purpose of these speeches was not so much to decry vaccines -- ARPR claims to be pro-vaccination choice rather than anti-vaccine -- but rather to shed light on the truth about vaccines and vaccine policy, which is almost never discussed by the mainstream media.
Vaccines can injure and kill - everybody should know this by now
"It is an undisputed scientific fact that vaccines in their current state of development will kill and injure certain vulnerable people whom we can't identify and screen out in advance," explained Professor Mary Holland, J.D., from New York University Law School to listeners at the event. "Vaccines, under U.S. law, are correctly considered today [to be] unavoidably unsafe."
Mary went on to emphasize that free and informed consent, which has long been the bedrock of American civilization, is critical with regard to vaccination. She also vehemently denounced the utilitarian and immoral practice of forcing people to get vaccinated in order to "protect the majority while sacrificing the unknown and unknowing," which often prevents children from attending school and adults from maintaining certain jobs.
Vaccines are not improving childhood health outcomes -- just look at the data
But there is much more to the vaccine story that needs to be told, including the often-ignored fact that children are becoming increasingly sick and more stricken with chronic illnesses. Judy Converse, M.P.H., R.D., L.D., says there is a strong correlation between the ever-expanding vaccine schedule and this disease phenomenon that the conventional medical system continues to ignore.
"American children are more chronically ill and disabled than ever," explained Judy. "They are more likely to die as babies than their counterparts in more than 40 other countries. Children in the U.S. today have many, many times more asthma, autism, diabetes, Crohn's disease, epilepsy, life-threatening food allergy, obesity, ADHD learning and conduct disorders, even suicidality compared to kids in the 1980s when many fewer vaccines were given. So, are these all sudden genetic phenomenon [that were] just unnoticed before?"
American military members are allowed no freedom of choice with vaccinations
Then there is the harrowing element of vaccine coercion in the military, where servicemen are ordered to be experimental vaccine guinea pigs, or else face dishonorable discharge or even imprisonment. Retired U.S. Air Force Captian Richard Rovet, R.N., B.S.N., B-C, tells a sobering story of how the experimental anthrax vaccine, whose horrific symptoms have collectively been lumped into the category of Gulf War syndrome, was forced on the military for many years, and how its experimental adjuvants are now showing up in civilian vaccines.
"I will have forever etched upon my memory seeing a young African-American girl screaming and crying and being held down while the anthrax vaccine was forced into her body," divulged Capt. Rovet. "I will sadly remember my dear friend who died after anthrax vaccination, Clarence Glover. I will ever have in my memory those whose skin literally burned off of them with Stevens-Johnson syndrome. Or the infants that I cared for with severe birth defects following the anthrax vaccination."
