Senator calls for power to go to parents in vaccine decisions.
Pennsylvania senator Mike Folmer is leading the movement in vaccine rights for parents as he calls for the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) to be repealed.
The controversial act was put in place to stop parents and families of vaccine injuries from suing vaccine companies and the government, instead they are able to claim compensation.
To this date approximately $3.7 billion has been payed out to vaccine injury victims, highlighting just how many vaccines each year ‘go wrong’ and how much support people need afterwards.
But the vaccine injury act is really just a safety net for the vaccine companies and medical organisations who lead the victims blindly into receiving vaccine that can, and do cause harm.
The law about vaccine consent at the moment is a great point of contention, the strict guideline surrounding which vaccines are mandatory means that parents often feel pressured into making decisions for the children that they are not 100% happy with..
Sen. Mike Folmer has stated that he believes parents should have “Informed Consent”, which he believes is a constitutional right. He believes that parents should have much more information available to them when it comes to vaccines. How often before receiving a vaccine does the child or indeed the parent get given a substantial amount of information? It is usually what the doctor says goes, and parents have to go along with or or face reprimand, even prosecution.
Sen. Folmer has said the law:
“limits our ability to refuse vaccinations and violates the 5th Amendment of the US Constitution,”
Folmer has already put the wheels in motion for this change to happen, as he released the information on his website on January 3, 2018 that he would be implementing informed consent.
His plan to repeal the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act is still in progress, but seeing as the government and big pharma, particularly vaccine companies are so intricately intertwined repealing such a protective law will no doubt face several hold-backs.
The repeal of the law would likely see lawsuits for staggering amounts of money filed by individual victims as the justice system would have to look in detail at each and every case, highlighting the failings and the problems associated with certain vaccines. Now, the system allows for the claims to be processed somewhat covertly, as the companies who produce the harmful vaccines can get away with hiding behind the shroud of the law that is in place to protect them.
