Bought-off California lawmakers approve SB 277 mandatory vaccination law

by Ethan A. Huff, staff writer

(NaturalNews) Health freedom advocates are rallying to stop California Governor Jerry Brown from signing into law Senate Bill 277, which threatens to eliminate the freedom of parents to opt their children out of vaccines for personal or philosophical reasons. Reports indicate that SB 277 has passed through the California legislature, despite massive public outcry, and is now being sent to Gov. Brown's office for final consideration.

But the bill's passage is not necessarily a done deal, which means now is the time to turn up the heat and let your voices be heard on this crucial issue. Parents, health freedom advocates and others who oppose medical tyranny need to flood Gov. Brown's office with letters and phone calls informing him that Californians won't be bullied into surrendering their freedom of medical choice to the state.

Under SB 277, only certain medical conditions approved by a physician would constitute valid enough reason in the eyes of the state to skip childhood jabs. This egregious affront to medical freedom would forcibly relinquish parental authority over children and transfer it to the government, disallowing parents the freedom to make proper medical decisions for their own kids.

Gov. Brown personally believes vaccines are "important," but that doesn't qualify him to force them on all Californians

Responding to the bill's passage through the state legislature, Gov. Brown's office issued the following dubious statement which suggests that he may, in fact, sign SB 277 into law:

"The governor believes that vaccinations are profoundly important and a major public health benefit, and any bill that reaches his desk will be closely considered," stated the governor's spokesman, Evan Westrup, to the media.

Well that's nice, but Gov. Brown's personal opinions on the matter are wholly irrelevant when it comes to the medical freedom of California parents for whom he works -- remember, government employees and politicians work for us, not the other way around. As a community centered around upholding the freedom of individuals to make their own health decisions, we need to stand up and put a stop to this attempt at medical tyranny.

Call Gov. Brown and tell him to veto SB 277

A petition that's already reached 69% of its 50,000-signature goal calls on Gov. Brown to veto SB 277, as well as related bills SB 792 and AB 1117, all of which threaten parental authority and freedom of medical choice when it comes to vaccination. You can sign that petition here:

We also encourage our readers to call Gov. Brown's office directly to inform him that if he proceeds with signing SB 277 into law, he will be guilty of both caving to special interests and betraying his constituents. It's important to remember that SB 277 didn't just appear out of thin air -- it was concocted as part of an agenda by the drug industry to force its dangerous products on the masses.

SB 277's primary advocate, "Dr." Richard "Dick" Pan, has repeatedly been exposed for accepting cash bribes from the vaccine industry, including Merck & Co., the creator of the deadly HPV vaccine Gardasil, which has injured and/or killed tens of thousands of young girls all around the world. Pan is no friend of medical freedom, in other words, and his heinous bill is clear evidence of that.
