California AB499 The Gardasil Bill

There are too many bills coming out of Sacramento that a person unless they devote a life to it, could never keep up.  I had the pleasure of listening to Assemblyman Brian Jones on Saturday as he told us horror stories of his days spent in Sacramento.  Sam Paredes from California Gun Owners was there too, but that’s a whole ‘nother blog.

I have a limited number of characters, so let’s get started.  Gardasil is a vaccine that prevents 4 types of HPV or Human Papilloma Virus.  The CDC (Center for Disease Control) defines HPV as: Genital human papillomavirus (also called HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI). There are more than 40 HPV types that can infect the genital areas of males and females.
Please note that does say 40 HPV types, NOT 4.

According to the National Cancer Institute there are 2 strains of HPV that cause Cervical Cancer the Numbers 16 and 18.  I understand Gardasil to protect against 4 strains of HPV.  “GARDASIL helps protect against 2 types of HPV that cause about 75% of cervical cancer cases and 2 more types that cause 90% of genital warts cases. In boys and young men ages 9 to 26, GARDASIL helps protect against 90% of genital warts cases.”

How low have we fallen as a society that a 9 year old girl needs to be vaccinated against a sexually transmitted disease?   AB499 “the bill, sponsored by Assemblywoman Toni Atkins, D-San Diego, would permit children 12 years old and up to consent to Gardasil vaccinations and other methods to prevent sexually-transmitted diseases without telling their parents.”

This is not the same case as Presidential Hopeful Rick Perry  (R-TX) who mandated by executive order that girls 11 and 12 years of age have a Gardasil injection before attending school.  Perry’s mandate did have an opt out for parents and Governor Brown’s bill does not seem to have a mandate however it severely limits parental rights essentially someone else will decide what is best for your child.  I believe this to be the goal of a large government, to take the minds and bodies of our children for their own.  If you control the youth you control the future.  Lucky for us, we’ve already seen this happen in 1930s Germany and are able to identify it and it can be defeated.

What I know about HPV wouldn’t fill a thimble but I do know that the government impeding our rights as parents is a bad thing.   The CDC admits to 68 deaths from Gardasil and 36 unconfirmed deaths from Gardasil, remember, Gardasil was released in 2006, I  have not heard of any drop in HPV infections, however 104 deaths that the CDC is willing to cop to in association with Gardasil is staggering.  I believe that number is much higher Judicial Watch has a page dedicated to other serious side effects and deaths that allegedly were the result of Gardasil Vaccinations.  Please click on the link to learn more about Gardasil side effects.  If I heard that the HPV infection rate had dropped dramatically, I could understand parents taking notice and protecting their children, however for a government to mandate this or to allow a health care provider to give a vaccine without the consent of the parent is obscene.

This is an excerptOne mother of a 13-year-old girl who died 37 days after receiving the vaccination noted in a report: “I first declined getting her the vaccination but her doctor ensured me that it was safe…” After her daughter complained of a severe headache, no feeling in her foot and a tingling feeling in her leg, a doctor’s appointment was set for October 23, 2009. “My daughter never made it to Oct[ober] 23rd, which is also her birthday,” the mother noted. “She passed on Oct[ober] 17th, I found her cold unresponsive in her room at 7am….”

Gardasil has a campaign ad and it’s called ‘One Less’.  Here is one of the videos they released encouraging their vaccine, naming the side effects, but ‘possible death’ was not on the list.  I’m not against Pharmaceutical Companies making money that is Free Market Capitalism; however when you make so much money by having the government push your deadly substance it becomes Crony Capitalism and Crony Capitalism is manipulation of the market using the Tax Payer as a source of revenue.

At what point will the California Legislature, or any Government here in the USA start telling us when to sleep, when to eat, when to potty?  Laugh if you will, but it’s not far off.  Here we have the First Lady encouraging us to lie to our children with her “Let’s Move” campaign, please see this video.   Anytime the government mandates something you have to question it.  What is their motive?  In the case of Rick Perry and Jerry Brown on the surface it looks like they are ‘Do gooders’ trying to protect their citizens from a horrible disease that kills about 12,000 women a year.  That sounds very noble of them, however what about drunk driving?  In 2008 14,000 people died as a result of drunk driving.

Living has risks associated with it.  Every time we step out our door the chances of being hit by a car increases 100 fold but wait, staying home doesn’t make you any safer, 22 thousand people a year fall to their deaths in their own homes.  Where is the government on that one?  What about the 29,000 people that die from poisoning each year?  The statistics are staggering of how people die; does the government feel it can save us all from everything?

Why is the government in the business of saving us anyway?  The constitution clearly states it’s the job of the Government to provide mail (they can’t even efficiently do that), roads for the mail to travel on, and protect our borders (which they most certainly are not doing).  Governor Brown, isn’t it time to start working on reducing the $trillion unfunded pension deficit or the $26 billion spending deficit.  Governor Brown it’s time to go back to a part time Legislature.

This year California is on target to have 2300 new regulations and laws to go into effect in January, which ones will affect you?  ALL of them, they are all going to cost you tax dollars.  The Gardasil bill alone is $130 per child vaccinated, how many being vaccinated will be done so under a government program?  Per 100 children the cost to the state is $130K.  Gardasil encourages both boys and girls to be vaccinated.  Do the math, there are 449,000 on Welfare in California, if only have half of those have children of the vaccination age (11 and 12) that is over $29 million in tax dollars going to pay for a vaccine that may just kill some of them.  California Legislature, GO HOME.

California’s AB499 needs to be signed or Vetoed by Mr. Brown by October 9th, you get all the facts, verbiage and dates on AB499 here.
