Tax benefits

Tax benefits soon to be withheld from parents who don't vaccinate children

(NaturalNews) Slowly, but very surely, the world's Great Power democracies are slipping into totalitarianism, all the while swearing that the transition away from liberty and freedom is for our own good.

The most recent example of this rising "soft tyranny" took place in "the land Down Under" - Australia - once an icon of rugged individualism. There, the socialist Labor government, led by Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, is forcing parents to immunize their children under threat of losing a sizeable tax credit.

According to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation News (ABC News) :

... Rudd has announced that parents who choose not to have their children vaccinated will miss out on thousands of dollars in government benefits.

Speaking at Westmead Hospital in Sydney on Sunday, Mr Rudd said those who do not vaccinate their children will not get the Family Tax Benefit A end-of-year supplement.

The payment is worth $726 per child, per year and is paid when children are vaccinated at one, two and five years of age.

Vaccinate because it's 'proven science'

The report says that, since last year, parents who had yet to immunize their kids had not received the benefit (that they presumably contributed to, as taxpayers). But, said ABC News, parents who registered as so-called conscientious objectors have received it.

Under the new Labor Party policy, the only exemptions that will be granted will be those based on religious or medical grounds.

Labor Party officials and parliamentarians say their freedom-stripping policy is aimed at getting more children immunized, to "prevent children who are not vaccinated from getting diseases like whooping cough and measles, and putting others at risk," ABC News said. Further, say Australian government health officials, the science of immunization "cannot be disputed" (that is, until an immunization kills or disables a child, as in the case of a flu vaccine since banned Down Under: https://www.naturalnews.com/035636_flu_vaccine_banned_children.html).

"Immunisation is the safest and most effective way for parents to protect their children from disease, and one of the most important public health measures at our disposal," a government statement said.

Tanya Plibersek, Federal Health Minister, told Sky News the government's newest threat will indeed increase immunization rates.

"It is one of the single more effective and cheapest ways of keeping our community healthy," she said.

"We think about 3 million lives are saved a year around the world" each year by immunizations, she said. "We're very lucky that in Australia so many of these diseases have almost disappeared that sometimes people become a bit complacent."

The Australian Medical Association also weighed in. Dr. Steve Hambleton said benefits of immunization, by far, outweigh any risks.

"The strong message here is the Government is rewarding people who do the right thing ... [and] fully immunise their children," he told ABC News. "If we can get the immunization rates above 90 percent, we will abolish diseases like measles and can we can attack things like whooping cough."

Even the Australian press is biased. Sydney's Daily Telegraph newspaper - "read by thousands of voters in key western Sydney seats" - has been publishing a campaign that is critical of any parents who choose not to vaccinate their kids.

Even in Australia, it's all 'For the Children'

Natural News editor-in-chief Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, isn't fooled by such "official" blessings of vaccines. In particular, a couple years ago, he mocked the flawed "logic" of the annual flu shot, comparing it to buying a warranty on a brand-new appliance:

The (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and the vaccine industry are fronting a similar bit of contradictory logic. "Our vaccines work so well that they offer almost total immunity from the flu," they claim. And yet somehow they also work so poorly that they "wear off" after a year and require you to be re-vaccinated annually.

This is The Great Big Lie of the vaccine industry: The lie that says you have be re-vaccinated each and every year, often with the exact same strains you were vaccinated with the previous year. The coming winter flu vaccines for 2011, for example, are being manufactured with the same strains as the 2010 flu vaccines.

What's more, the Australian government's threat of withholding a taxpayer's benefit is typical of the authoritarianism inherent in the government-centric mindset of the anti-democrat: do what we say or we'll punish you.

No matter how many children it harms.
