There are two distinct components to situations where vaccines are mandated. First, determine what your rights actually are (which is often confused with what you think your rights should be). Second, if you don’t like the status of your rights, you must take legislative steps to change them.

In my experience, most hospitals’ religious exemption policies violate federal law by requiring the involvement of a religious official. Healthcare workers can object to state – or employer- mandated flu shots on religious grounds under federal civil rights law. The law defines ‘religion’ so broadly that there are even beliefs one could hold as an atheist that are protected religious beliefs. That said, there are legal pitfalls when applying for a religious exemption; many have failed when they have attempted this on their own. So, like any other important legal matter, if your right to refuse is really important to you, you should consult an experienced attorney. Unfortunately, while there are a lot of attorneys who understand employment law, there are very few who are specifically experienced with vaccine exemptions. Keep that in mind when choosing your attorney.

To the best of my knowledge, I’m the only attorney in the U.S. whose practice is focused *solely on vaccine exemptions and waivers.* Despite this, I charge less  for my services than most other attorneys. This past fall, I worked with approximately 150 healthcare workers in 25 states. The overwhelming majority of exemptions we filed were ultimately successful (keep in mind, past success doesn’t guarantee every future success; every situation is different).  As I continue to learn more, I will continue to identify tactics hospitals are using and how best to address them.

Meanwhile, beyond the need for individual exemptions, when we examine our current legislative rights, most who have concerns about vaccination feel they are inadequate. So, we must all get involved with legislative action to change the laws as to guarantee our right to determine what goes into our body. Legislative success is a tall order when we are opposed by the pharmaceutical industry. Their massive clout and purse pose a formidable challenge.  Furthermore, a lasting, long-term fix will necessarily require exposing the underlying corruption, and that will not be easy.

We will face tremendous resistance. The current system has been designed to maintain the status quo and protect the corruptors. It is important to understand the foe so we can proceed realistically.  As we make progress, desperate measures may be taken by our opposition, including personal attacks and more.  When we speak loudly enough for long enough, though, change will occur. One drop of water won’t do anything to a rock, but persistent, repeated drops wear down mountains. Every drop moves us forward; and every drop inspires other drops to join in. We must be prepared to persist over the long term and pace ourselves to avoid burnout.

I have work with legislative activists across the U.S., but I want to encourage everyone to join the NVIC Advocacy Portal (www.nvicAdvocacy.org). This is the best place in the U.S. to work with others on vaccine legislative activism. It is FREE to join, and takes little time to participate. Everyone must keep doing whatever we can, even if it’s just to be a persistent thorn in the foot, until we can figuratively become a dagger in the heart of the opposition. Failure is not an option. We must work together to reach our goal: Retain the Right to Refuse Vaccination.

Prescription Drugs Now Factor in Higher Percentage of Fatal Car Crashes Than Alcohol or Marijuana

Prescription Drugs Now Factor in Higher Percentage of Fatal Car Crashes Than Alcohol or Marijuana

Pin It

Prescription drugs and multiple drug combinations are frequently found in the blood of drivers involved in fatal car crashes on US roads, according to a new study in Public Health Reports. Drivers today are more likely to test positive for drugs than drivers 20 years ago, and drugged drivers are now likely to be older than 50. Gone are the days when drunk drivers were our only concern—alcohol is but one of MANY drugs that can make you dangerous behind the wheel. And now many people are on multiple drug cocktails, especially prescription drugs, which multiplies their impairment.

Use of Aborted Human Cell Lines in Vaccines Linked to Rise in Autism

Use of Aborted Human Cell Lines in Vaccines Linked to Rise in Autism

Researchers from the Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute recently published a study showing a correlation with the introduction of human fetal cell lines used as contaminants in childhood vaccines, and the rapid rise of autism. The study was published in the Journal of Public Health and Epidemiology, an open access Academic Journal.

I reviewed the full length research paper and found the methodology of the research very thorough. The researchers tracked not only the introduction of aborted fetal cell lines introduced into vaccines used in the childhood vaccination scheduled in the United States, but they also tracked standards for autism diagnoses as published in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual. This manual is used in the field of psychology and has undergone several revisions. One of the claims made for the rising rate of autism in America today is that it is primarily related to changes of diagnosis. This study used sophisticated software to account for these changes in autism diagnosis, and found:

“Autistic disorder change points years are coincident with introduction of vaccines manufactured using human fetal cell lines, containing fetal and retroviral contaminants, into childhood vaccine regimens. This pattern was repeated in the US, UK, Western Australia and Denmark. Thus, rising autistic disorder prevalence is directly related to vaccines manufactured utilizing human fetal cells. Increased paternal age and DSM revisions were not related to rising autistic disorder prevalence.”

Boston Nurses Speak Out Against Mandatory Flu Shots

Boston Nurses Speak Out Against Mandatory Flu Shots

Last month (September 2014) the Massachusetts Nurses Association sued Brigham and Women’s Hospital over a new policy that required nurses to receive the annual flu vaccine as a condition for employment.

The nurses were, of course, criticized by the medical establishment. They were accused of putting their own interests above the needs of patients. Lynn Nicholas, president of the Massachusetts Hospital Association, stated that the nurses were: “putting a pet peeve of theirs above the safety and well-being of the patients they serve, their families, visitors to the hospital, and their colleagues.”

Pet peeve? Really?

When nurses all across the United States and Canada are willing to sacrifice their jobs and careers to avoid the annual flu shot, it is time to sit up and take notice. This is obviously something much more than a “pet peeve.”

Trish Powers, representing Brigham nurses in Boston fired back a comment that The Boston Globe published. It is titled “Brigham nurses know flu vaccine can do harm.”

Gardasil: The Day Our Daughter’s Life Changed

Gardasil: The Day Our Daughter’s Life Changed

The Gardasil vaccine has changed Skylee’s life in so many ways and we do not know how many more symptoms will show up and change her life even more than it has already done. Our whole family has been affected by this vaccine and all of our lives have been turned upside down that terrible day in 2013.

If only the doctors would recognize Skylee has gone from being a healthy young girl to an invalid when the only major change in her life occurred on the day she had that single shot of Gardasil.

Will There Be An Ebola Outbreak in America?

Will There Be An Ebola Outbreak in America?

So here is what inquiring minds want to know:

Why did U.S. health officials in Atlanta and on the ground in Africa ignore the exploding Ebola epidemic last spring?

Why did U.S. government officials fly American aid workers infected with Ebola to the U.S. rather than treating them with experimental drugs at hospitals in Africa?

Why did the U.S. government press the United Nations to adopt a resolution calling for no restrictions on international travel from Liberia and other Ebola-stricken countries?

Why did the Centers for Disease Control, supposedly the world’s leading infection control agency, fail to immediately assist Texas health officials when the first case of Ebola was diagnosed on US soil to guarantee that, at a minimum, the kind of infection control measures used in most nursing homes in America would be carried out?

Why has the Director of the CDC repeatedly stated that the only way a person can transmit Ebola is if they have a fever and said that people cannot get Ebola unless they have direct contact with the body fluids of an infected person – but that under no circumstances is Ebola airborne – when he knows, or should know, those statements could be false?

And why are experimental Ebola vaccines being fast tracked into human trials and promoted as the final solution rather than ramping up testing and production of the experimental ZMapp drug that has already saved the lives of several Ebola infected Americans?

A logical conclusion is that some people in industry, government and the World Health Organization did not want the Ebola outbreak to be confined to several nations in Africa because that would fail to create a lucrative global market for mandated use of fast tracked Ebola vaccines by every one of the seven billion human beings living on this planet.
