Who’s Your Daddy Now? Big Pharma?Sunday, September 11, 2011
The pharmaceutical-political complex never fails to leave me dumbfounded in response to its brazen and totalitarian attacks upon individuals by way of the coercive machine known as government that has a monopoly on raiding your home and telling you how to live your life. This story on CalWatchdog reports on the Gardasill Bill, otherwise called AB 499, that is summarized as:
Existing law allows minors to consent to specified forms of medical or dental treatment.
This bill would, in addition, allow a minor who is 12 years of age or older to consent to medical care related to the prevention of a sexually transmitted disease.
This means that Gardasil, which is manufactured by Merck, can be administered to children without parental permission. After all, parents who think they know best for their own children are such a nuisance. This bill would allow the purveyors of public school enslavement to poke your children with Big Pharma’s potent drugs under the guise of ‘protecting’ them from a potential health issue for which you, the parent, are denying that ‘protection.’ CalWatchdog cross-matched votes with Merck corporate contributions and came up with some very foreseeable results – dough in the coffers for those who said Yea to the bill. Who will pay Merck to stick your children? The state and federal governments will split the cost of the body invasions, meaning you will pay for it.
The California Catholic Daily reports that California’s bishops are appealing to governor Jerry Brown to veto this act of assault upon children who are not equipped to make these decisions about their bodies and health. Here’s a paragraph from the article:
Among the supporters of AB 499 are the American Civil Liberties Union, the Los Angeles Lesbian and Gay Center, NARAL Pro-Choice California, Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California and Women’s Health Specialists – a chain of nine California abortion clinics that also goes by the name Feminist Women’s Health Center.
These are all of the usual suspects who think that it takes a village – and Big Pharma – to raise your child. Thanks to Scott Lazarowitz for the heads-up.
