Freedom To Choose Revoked in the Case Of Parents VS Government
My daughter and Me now :)
When my second child was born I read a book called "The Poison Needle" by Eleanor McBean, and, even though I was a practicing Licensed Practical Nurse, I chose then and there never to vaccinate my children. I soon discovered that my new doctor had a sign up in his office stating that he no longer used the Smallpox vaccine (this was in the early 70's when it was still common practice) because the dangers far outweighed the benefits - and he also no longer immunized babies with the Rubella vaccine, which was discovered to cause Juvenile Arthritis in some children. This was an encouragement to me that I was doing the right thing, and began a lifetime of personal research concerning vaccination.
Many years later, when my 4th child fell on a garden rake at 5 years of age, and I refused to vaccinate (after an anonymous phone call to Child and Family Services implicated me as a "negligent parent"), I was threatened with the removal of all my children from my home, taken to court with no representation, forced to have the shot administered at the local hospital (not a private doctor's office), and put on record for 5 long years for "extreme neglect", which meant that I could not work in any capacity in my field of nursing. All this in a FREE America - unbelievable to me as I look back on it, and tell it here again.
