Re: Statement federal vaccine mandates
Feb. 26, 2019
The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) strongly opposes federal interference in medical decisions, including mandated vaccines. After being fully informed of the risks and benefits of a medical procedure, patients have the right to reject or accept that procedure. The regulation of medical practice is a state function, not a federal one. Governmental preemption of patients’ or parents’ decisions about accepting drugs or other medical interventions is a serious intrusion into individual liberty, autonomy, and parental decisions about child-rearing.
From .govs’ own website….
Significant vaccine side-effects have been linked to swine flu vaccine (Guillain-Barre paralysis); in RSV vaccine; in the measles, mumps and MMR vaccines; hepatitis A and B vaccine; tetanus vaccine; smallpox vaccine; polio vaccine; pertussis vaccine, etc. The incidence of vaccine side-effects may now be sufficiently great to question the claims that the risks from the disease exceed that of vaccines.
The MMR vaccine has been linked to autism, Crohn’s disease, inflammatory bowel disease[142,143] and other serious chronic stomach problems, epilepsy, brain damage including meningitis[145,146], cerebral palsy, pancreatitis and diabetes mellitus[148–150], encephalopathy, encephalitis[151,152], hearing and vision problems, arthritis, behavioural and learning problems, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, Guillain-Barre syndrome, idiopathic thrombocytopaenic purpura, subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE), leukaemia, multiple sclerosis, and death.
There is evidence that in cases of immune deficiency that viruses continue to persist in the body[143,153–155]. The measles virus is known to persist in patients with subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE), measles inclusion body encephalitis (MIBE) and multiple sclerosis. Since the introduction of measles vaccines, vaccine-associated SSPE has increased in the USA. Furthermore patients with B or T-cell immunodeficiencies have cognitive side-effects and are advised against vaccination due to the risk of severe and/or fatal infection (Merck). That viruses persist in the body and are linked to autoimmune disorders is a feature of rubella virus[158–160], anthrax vaccination, hepatitis B, etc. There is a reported increased risk of death with combined vaccination DPT and polio.
In summary, vaccine’s side-effects reflect the vaccine’s influence upon the body’s functional systems i.e. upon temperature, digestion, excretion, blood cell content, etc.
