Don’t be thinking that AB2109 had any kind of redeeming upside, any silver lining. It was an unmitigated disaster.
You probably heard that AB2109 came to its predictable resolution on 1 Oct when Jerry Brown signed it into law. As a last minute distractor from this unprecedented violation of the rights of CA parents, Brown threw the dogs a bone – a mention of a religious exemption. ‘Don’t dismay, we’re taking away this, but we’re going to give you this…’
But no matter what you may read, be very clear about this: there is no religious exemption for vaccines in California. All we have is a vague and undefined promise of a religious exemption at some undetermined time in the future. From a politician – a politician who surreptitiously signed the bill that allowed schools to vaccinate kids without their parents’ knowledge or permission.
No one has any idea of the nature of this alleged future religious exemption – its restrictions, its content, its enforcement – nothing. No assurance it will ever happen at all. So don’t be taken in by any false adulation or consolation-prize-type sentiments you might read on facebook or any other irresponsible source of hearsay.
There is unequivocally no upside to the passage of AB2109. It was and is a quantum step backward in American pediatrics, in American life. The world just got a little worse. See Articles AB2109.
Now even though this law is passed and will never be revoked, it doesn’t go into effect until some time in 2014, at the earliest. It will take the luminaries in Sacramento that long to write the new medical cosignature form. So until that time, the old exemption forms are still good, still law in California. So don’t let any school tell you they’re not. Some might try that trick.
As we said in earlier newsletters and on the site, AB2109 didn’t just randomly happen. It is the culmination of years of planning, beginning with the 2007 meeting in Washington DC by the engineers of the program to demonize and eliminate vaccine exemptions. CA was the test state – the guinea pig. Now the template is set. It’s a foregone conclusion the same law will be introduced into every other state in the next 2 years.
TheDoctorWithin has been saying that ever since AB2109 was introduced. Now watch it come true.
