Medical Police State: Colorado may set up vaccine database to track children


(NaturalNews) GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump is taking a lot of heat from detractors for many of his political statements and policy stances, but one thing that he's committed to doing is governing in a way that empowers, not enslaves or lords over, his fellow Americans.

For instance, Trump is a huge supporter of the Second Amendment, and has pledged that the "right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed ... period," according to his campaign website.

Trump is also the only current presidential candidate to have spoken out about massive mandatory vaccinations for children, urging the medical community to spread them out over time, and not give them all in one dose, which he also said would lower the incidence of vaccine-induced autism. "Tiny children are not horses," Trump tweeted in September 2014. "I am being proven right about massive vaccinations—the doctors lied. Save our children & their future."

On the other hand, Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton backs mandatory vaccination.

In fact, if any political party has become authoritarian when it comes to forcing parents to vaccinate their children or face legal and monetary consequences, it is the party of the donkey: the Democrats.

One party wants mandatory vaccination

In recent months, we've seen the state of California – a state that has remained under one-party rule for decades – pass one of the most restrictive mandatory vaccination laws in the country, where even parents with philosophical and religious objections to vaccines were disregarded.

And now, the state of Colorado, also dominated by Democrats, is moving to pass legislation that would created a new database to track children who have not been vaccinated.

The measure, which is, at least, facing stiff opposition, moved forward in the Legislature recently, even after Republicans gave it lengthy debate and said that the database would open the door to shaming parents who have, for a range of reasons, decided not to risk their children by mass-vaccinating them, The Associated Press reported.

A last-minute mistake means that the Democratic House will once again have to revisit the vaccine measure twice before it gets sent to the Republican-controlled Senate (where it is opposed).

As the AP noted further:

Colorado has some of the nation's loosest rules for avoiding required vaccines. Parents must simply state that they have a medical, moral or religious objection, after which their kids may attend public schools.

Federal health authorities said last year that Colorado ranked dead last in school vaccination coverage for measles, mumps and rubella for the 2013-14 school year. Just last month, four cases of mumps were identified in Denver.

Democrats who support a vaccine database in the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment argued ... that the database does nothing to tighten vaccine exemptions.

"We're doing absolutely nothing to change that standard," Rep. Dan Pabon, D-Denver and sponsor of the bill, claimed, according to the AP. "This is a streamlining bill that takes the burden off our school nurses to collect vaccine exemption forms."

'Why would we want to track this?'

Except that opponents of the measure note that government actions like building databases are generally what precede additional bills seeking to require or prevent people from doing something; otherwise, they say, there is no good reason for the government to be tracking said activity.

And Colorado Republicans are well aware of that, citing a bevy of opposition from parents who also fear that Colorado health authorities are making a push to make it more difficult to send their kids to public schools without vaccines.

"There's a lot of people in this state that do not want to vaccinate their children," said Rep. J. Paul Brown, R-Ignacio. "They have that right."

In addition, and because they are suspicious generally of the measure, others questioned the need for a database.

"How can you guarantee that this sensitive data will be protected?" asked Rep. Lois Landgraf, R-Parker.

"Why would we want to post this on a website?" asked bill opponent Rep. Patrick Neville, R-Castle Rock. "The only reason I can think is to publicly shame someone."
