A Kansas City clinic has set a disturbing precedent by kicking
out a two-year old boy because his mother had failed to follow
childhood vaccinations schedule guidelines set by the Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention.
Care Pediatrics told Angela Andrews to leave their clinic with
her son Elijah because of a new immunization policy.
"If we're not going to get him on the CDC
schedule, they're not going to treat us," Andrews told
Andrews told the CNN affiliate network that her
son was behind on shots because she was concerned that levels
of aluminum contained within the vaccines would damage his health.
"I'm not the expert by any means, but I'm
the expert when it comes to my son. He was sick a lot when he
was younger. He was more susceptible to flu and colds. I just
didn't feel like vaccines were safe until he was hardier,"
Watch a KMBC TV news report on this story:
The clinic has stated that it will not tolerate
non-vaccination because it leaves other children at risk, logic
that doesn't quite add up because if they have been vaccinated
they should be protected.
The clinic's policy sets a dangerous precedent
whereby parental choice over whether to vaccinate their children
or not becomes irrelevant, given the threat to withdraw healthcare
Besides certain laws that apply only to government
medical specialists - there is no law that enforces the mandatory
use of any vaccine in the United States. Waiver forms for personal
or religious exemptions are freely available. Enforced medical
treatment is an assault and a violation of the 14th amendment.
Concerned parents across the U.S. are leading
a nationwide revolt against unnecessary, untested and dangerous
vaccines as CDC
records show a growing amount of religious exemptions
on vaccine forms.
Perhaps as a result of this growing mistrust,
some lawmakers seem determined to ignore the Constitution and
mandatory all vaccinations recommended by the CDC
for all children, including infants and toddlers.
More recently, large Pharmaceutical companies,
unable to sell the "benefits" of vaccinations to make
enough profit out of them, have increasingly turned to state
legislatures and attempted to pay off Governors and other officials
to curry favor and force young children to take vaccines such
as the flu shot and the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine.
However, big pharma has faced a fierce
backlash from concerned parents and religious organizations.
With the advent of the H1N1 "pandemic", and the media
hype surrounding it, it is expected that more and more clinics
and schools will begin to institute similar unconstitutional
policies to that of Priority Care Pediatrics in Kansas.
