What happens when a state or a judge for that matter orders the bodies of young children to be forever altered under the guise of medicine? Well, I think we already know because history is a great teacher. After all, under eugenics programs targeted at poor whites and a majority of minorities we witnessed the abuse of state eugenics courts who ordered the surgical sterilization of men, women and children (too young to consent) in the name of public health. And, while some were complicit in this monstrous part of our history, many others said and did nothing to stop it. Today, the James Younger case out of Texas parallels this tragic time in history and reveals how the state can potentially yank children from a parent and pump them full of hormones to force them to become another gender.

Past is reflection of the Present:

“Unnamed patient records from the 1920s document hundreds of individuals in their late teens and early 20s sterilized for…feeblemindedness, or mental deficiency. A notable percentage of these young patients were typed as masturbators or incest perpetrators if male and as promiscuous—even nymphomaniacal—or having borne a child out of wedlock if female,” noted a report on coercive sterilizations, ironically titled, Sterilized in the Name of Public Health.

This targeting of vulnerable children continued for years. Wallace Kuralt who influenced the opening of a Planned Parenthood facility in North Carolina, headed a coercive eugenic sterilization program in the state when he served as Mecklenburg County’s welfare director from 1945 to 1972. Eugenics has been a cornerstone of Planned Parenthood’s history, and its ugly roots continue to be revealed. According to a report by the Charlotte Observer:

Kuralt retired almost 40 years ago and died in 1994. His key aides also have died, and memories have faded of the decisions that changed hundreds of lives. Some women came forward willingly. Some patients were little more than children who didn’t understand what was to take place. Today, it is impossible to tease out the exact mix of good intentions and overzealous execution, prejudice and paternalism that let such a crusade run unchecked.

A coercive program put in place by the German Nazi Party also targeted children-unable to consent.

In the 1970’s, a lawsuit was filed to petition federal agencies to draw up guidelines which would prevent the economic coercion of poor women seeking medical care under Medicaid and other programs. A 1973 report by the Aiken Standard report on the case states that,  “The action amends a suit seeking to prevent the forced sterilizations of minors and mental incompetents, stemming from three minors, two of whom were allegedly sterilized without their consent and one who received experimental birth control shots in Alabama.

In referring to the aforementioned Mecklenburg County case, the Charlotte Observer also discussed the issue of “consent,” writing, “Records show patients signed consent for 317 of the 430 sterilizations brought by the Welfare Department. Those without consent were often the youngest patients. All told, the department got sterilization orders for 54 children 16 and younger. The youngest was a 10-year-old girl with a mental age of 4 who had begun menstruating the year before. The parents, who signed the consent for surgery, “appear to give her good supervision but she frequently eludes her parents and wanders away,” the summary says.”

What about today?

On Thursday, October 24, 2019 a judge will make the final determination on whether the mother of a young seven year-old boy, James Younger, can begin the process of chemically altering his gender to “transition” him into being a girl. You heard correctly- 7 years-old – a child that can hardly consent nor understand the consequences that could change his life and his body forever. The case has garnered a ton of attention over the last year but exploded on social media this week after the boy’s father, Jeff Younger, lost his battle in court to protect his son from this experimental procedure.

According to the Daily Caller, “Jeff Younger said his son is happy being a boy and does not desire to be a girl, according to The Texan. James Younger’s pediatrician mother, Anne Georgulas, as well as counselors and therapists who testified on her behalf, told the court that the 7-year-old is transgender and had expressed to each of them that he wished he were a girl.”

LifeSite News, has been following the case and reported that, “Dr. Georgulas [the boy’s mother] has been telling James he’s a girl since he was three. She enrolled him in kindergarten as a girl named “Luna.” He uses the girls’ restroom and all of this classmates believe he is a girl. Dr. Georgulas wants to subject James to puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones as well as legally force his father to treat him as a girl. ”

“Multiple character witnesses for Mr. Younger testified that James presents as a boy when he is with his father and that they have never seen reason to believe James wants to be a girl,” LifeSite News also reported.

On Monday, a consensus of 11 of the 12 jurors in a Dallas court ruled against granting Younger [the father] sole managing conservatorship over James and his twin brother Jude, reported the Daily Wire, adding:

According to the LifeSiteNews, Georgulas has been granted authority to move forward with puberty blockers, which can cause chemical castration, and, potentially, hormones, if she so chooses.

The case is raising questions about the ability for young children to “consent” to permanent and often surgical changes to their bodies.

History has shown us that courts and the medical community have made troubling decisions for others in the past. It wasn’t that long ago when the State was forcefully sterilizing men, women and children under eugenics programs that continue to haunt society to this day. In many cases, children who were forcefully castrated or sterilized with “permission” of their parents have since decried the ghoulish experiments.

 

In the summer of 1923, 16 year-old Carrie Buck was raped and became pregnant. She was unmarried and the daughter of an inmate at the Lynchburg Colony for Epileptics and Feebleminded. After her foster parents dubbed her she  “peculiar” since birth, Carrie was classified as “feebleminded.” According to Facinghistory.org:

On March 28, 1924, Carrie Buck gave birth to a daughter, whom she named Vivian. A few months later, Carrie was admitted to the Lynchburg Colony. Not long after her arrival, Virginia passed a law allowing involuntary sterilization of those labeled as “feebleminded.” Officials at the Lynchburg Colony decided to sterilize Carrie Buck under the new law with the approval of Albert Priddy, the superintendent of the colony. But first, he and his colleagues arranged for her to appeal the decision in the Virginia courts. Although the appeal was in her name, Carrie Buck had no voice in the process. Priddy and other eugenicists were in charge. They hired an attorney for her as well as one for themselves. The two lawyers were in constant contact with one another and with Priddy before and during trial proceedings even though such collaborations are unethical.

The case, later known as Buck v. Bell, was first heard in the Circuit Court for Amherst County on November 18, 1924.

At the trial Aubrey Strode, the lawyer for Priddy and the Lynchburg Colony, offered “scientific evidence” that Carrie Buck ought to be sterilized. The evidence came from the Eugenics Record Office and was prepared by Harry Laughlin.

Laughlin, who never met the young girl, was published by Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger in her Birth Control Review. He also signed the Citizen’s Committee on Planned Parenthood and in 1936, according to researcher Paul A. Lombardo, “Laughlin received an honorary degree from the Nazi-controlled University of Heidelberg as “a pioneer in the science of race cleansing.”

 

Laughlin’s “evidence” claimed that Carrie came, “from a shiftless, ignorant, and worthless class of people…”

After watching her seven-month-old daughter for a short time, a nurse decided that the baby was “not quite normal.” Based on this testimony, the judge decided that Carrie’s mother, Carrie herself, and her infant daughter were all “socially inadequate.”

Irving Whitehead, Buck’s lawyer, did little on her behalf. He called no witnesses to dispute Laughlin or other “experts” who favored sterilization. Not surprisingly, a judge upheld the decision to sterilize Carrie Buck. Whitehead promptly filed an appeal on her behalf in the Virginia Court of Appeals. It was just eight pages long, compared with the 44-page document the colony’s lawyers prepared. In November 1925, the appeals court also ruled against Buck.

In April of 1927, the case reached the U.S. Supreme Court. By then, Albert Priddy was dead. The new superintendent of the Lynchburg Colony was his former assistant, a Dr. Bell. So the case that began as Buck v. Priddy went to the Supreme Court as Buck v. Bell. The justices saw only the records from the original trial and the appeals court. Based solely on what they read in the court transcripts, they voted 8-1 to uphold the sterilization of Carrie Buck.

Oliver Wendall Holmes

Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. who delivered the opinion of the Supreme Court, stated in part, “We have seen more than once that the public welfare may call upon the best citizens for their lives. It would be strange if it could not call upon those who already sap the strength of the State for these lesser sacrifices, often not felt to be such by those concerned, in order to prevent our being swamped with incompetence. It is better for all the world, if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime, or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind. . . . Three generations of imbeciles are enough.”

Carrie Buck was sterilized in October 1927.

In 1928, Virginia officials also sterilized Carrie Buck’s sister. She was told that the operation was to remove her appendix. Only in 1980 did she learn why she was never able to have a child. “I broke down and cried,” she said. “My husband and me wanted children desperately. We were crazy about them. I never knew what they’d done to me.”

The ruling encouraged other states to enact sterilization laws. By 1930, 24 states had passed similar measures and about 60,000 people were sterilized under these statutes. Virginia alone sterilized more than 7,500 people between the Supreme Court ruling in 1927 and 1972 when the law was finally replaced.

As recent as the 1960’s state decisions which forever altered children reached deep into the heart of North Carolina and impacted a young Black teen by the name of Elaine Riddick.

Riddick’s tragic story also included a horrific rape as a young girl where she became pregnant.

NC state social worker Sue L. Casebolt discovered her pregnancy and referred Elaine’s case to the state’s Eugenics Board. One of the prominent supporters of the NC eugenics program was Clarence Gamble, a director of Margaret Sanger’s American Birth Control League, which later changed its name to Planned Parenthood. Casebolt had been installed as the Executive Secretary of the North Carolina Eugenics Board in 1961 and was on the board in 1968 when it approved the sterilization of Riddick.

According to ABC News, “Riddick’s illiterate grandmother, was told that they were doing a “procedure” that was necessary to help the young girl and signed the sterilization papers with an “X”. The state authorized and paid for the procedure, and without her consent or even her knowledge, Riddick was sterilized shortly after giving birth. She was 14 years old.”

In an interview in the documentary film on eugenics, Maafa21, Riddick stated:

“I asked the State of North Carolina why they did this to me…They sterilized kids, my understanding…-as young as eight years of age. I don’t know what an eight year-old can do that could cause them to do this to them? The only reason I can give myself is that [it’s] because they’re Black.”

According to Maafa21:

At a board meeting held three weeks later, she stated that she intended to keep a file on every child whose name reached her desk so that they could be picked up as soon as they reached childbearing age.

“I did not find out that they had sterilized me until I was nineteen years old,” Riddick states in the documentary film on eugenics, Maafa21.

“They cut me open like I was a hog,” Riddick emotionally told lawmakers in a hearing on reparations for eugenics victims.

Lillie Ann Buelin was also a victim of the terrible NC Eugenics Program, she told DigTriad.com that welfare workers told her that if she didn’t go to school they would operate on her and have her sterilized.  She says they also tested her and labeled her retarded.

“I was just 13 years old,” she emphasized.

In 2005, NBC News reported how, “Government-funded researchers tested AIDS drugs on hundreds of foster children over the past two decades, often without providing them a basic protection afforded in federal law and required by some states, an Associated Press review has found.”

The research funded by the National Institutes of Health spanned the country. It was most widespread in the 1990s as foster care agencies sought treatments for their HIV-infected children that weren’t yet available in the marketplace.

The practice ensured that foster children — mostly poor or minority — received care from world-class researchers at government expense, slowing their rate of death and extending their lives. But it also exposed a vulnerable population to the risks of medical research and drugs that were known to have serious side effects in adults and for which the safety for children was unknown.

According to a report from the Catholic News Agency (CNA), “Pediatric endocrinologists are warning that despite a lack of medical tests to determine its safety, U.S. doctors are increasingly injecting children who have gender dysphoria with a powerful hormonal suppressant normally used to treat prostate cancer.” And, a recent NBC News report highlighted a study that, “found that transgender women, who are assigned the male sex at birth, were twice as likely as cisgender men or women to have the blood clot condition venous thromboembolism. Transgender women on hormone therapy were also found to be 80 to 90 percent more likely to have stroke or a heart attack than cisgender women.”

A review of several studies, by the BMJ, concluded, that “There are significant problems with how the evidence for Gender-affirming cross-sex hormone has been collected and analysed that prevents definitive conclusions to be drawn…The development of these interventions should, therefore, occur in the context of research, and treatments for under 18 gender dysphoric children and adolescents remain largely experimental. There are a large number of unanswered questions that include the age at start, reversibility; adverse events, long term effects on mental health, quality of life, bone mineral density, osteoporosis in later life and cognition…”

On Thursday, Daily Wire writer Matt Walsh tweeted, “And yes puberty blockers are chemical castration. It’s the same drug they use to chemically castrate sex offenders. Yes this is shocking and hard to believe but it’s also true. This is the world we live in now. Wake up and start paying attention.”

Public outrage over the ruling in the Jeff Younger case prompted Texas Governor Greg Abbott to tweet on Wednesday that, “FYI the matter of 7 year old James Younger is being looked into by the Texas Attorney General’s Office and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.” But, according to the Washington Examiner, “There are no laws currently preventing a legal guardian from giving a minor puberty blockers or hormones.”

It also prompted Texas Representative Rep. Chip Roy to draft a letter to to the US Attorney General over his concern for the “lack of research studying the long-term impacts of the experimental use of medical treatments for so called gender dysphoria on young children, including hormones on children as young as 8 and double mastectomies on girls as young as 13…”

 

 

Rep. Roy then tweeted, “A 7-year-old shouldn’t be subjected to barbaric medical procedures because of an irresponsible adult.”

That sentiment was repeated by Washington Examiner columnist Brad Polumbo who wrote, “A 7-year-old boy cannot be transgender. At least, not with anywhere near the certainty necessary to justify life-altering, potentially irreversible physical changes such as hormone therapy or puberty blockers.”

This is insane and has understandably led to conservative backlash and widespread denunciation. As Kaylee McGhee observes, “[T]his is the logical conclusion of the transgender movement: Affirm our agenda or lose your rights to freedom of speech, association, conscience, and even your parental rights.”

McGhee is exactly right, which is why gay people should denounce transgender radicalism and separate ourselves from a movement that would strip away parental rights and force confused children into radical, life-altering decisions, all in the name of adults’ ability to show off how “woke” they are.

Polumbo continued, “First, let’s dispense with the narrative that a 7-year-old can even be transgender at all. Such a young child cannot even truly understand what sex and gender are, let alone sexuality or gender identity. Of course, a child can experience gender confusion: Many children do, and if James wanted to go by the name Luna, wear dresses, or so on, his parents would be wrong to shame him or otherwise stifle him. But that’s a very far cry from making radical, permanent physical changes based on the whims of a young child who, as McGhee notes, doesn’t even meet the medical criteria for a gender dysphoria diagnosis. Moreover, numerous studies show “that a substantial majority [of gender-confused kids] — anywhere from 65% to 94% — eventually ceased to identify as transgender.”

But, those stats did not dissuade the boy’s mother who, according to the Washington Examiner, secured a letter of recommendation for transition for James from a woman associated with a gay children’s therapy center, the Examiner reported.

“This is a letter of recommendation that my client, James Younger, aka Luna, begin the process of becoming a patient of the GENECIS clinic so that she can receive a full psychological assessment for gender dysphoria and potentially take hormone blockers,” said a letter from Rebekka Ouer from Dallas Rainbow Therapy.

A judge is set to rule on the matter Thursday October 24, 2019.

Disabled animals get reprieve from slaughter while babies do not

Posted in Euthanasia, Euthanesia with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 5, 2016 by saynsumthn

As abortion continues to target the disabled for a tortuous death, a disabled steer in Texas has received a reprieve after activists speak out. Oatmeal, the blind steer was scheduled for slaughter after being auctioned in Texas at the Fort Worth Stock Show’s Sale of Champions.

According to news reports, Oatmeal’s story struck a nerve among animal rights activists, vegans and others.

Oatmeal Steer Cow Abortion

The Fort Worth Star Telegraph reported what happened next:

    “As activists took to social media in an effort to rescue the steer, Oatmeal waited at a feedlot in South Texas.

    “Now he is bound for College Station, where he was expected to arrive late Friday or early Saturday, said state Rep. Charlie Geren, vice president of the Stock Show, who worked the deal with A&M Chancellor John Sharp.”

In an effort to save Oatmeal, one supporter commented:

    “That poor steer. He trusted humans his entire life, and now, trustingly, he will go with them and be led to his death. How very sad.”

I am an animal lover and I understand the compassion that anyone would have toward this animal. But, what I cannot understand is the complete disconnect many in society have towards the disabled preborn child, a human baby, selected for abortion. You know, one of the reasons we legalized abortion on demand in America was because we believed that a child with medical issues was of less value than a so-called healthy one. And, sadly, this idea was introduced by many American churches whose abortion resolutions led the way for the language which was later written into the Roe v. Wade abortion decision. Today, many of those religious institutions have repented and reversed their stand to oppose abortion, but, tragically, the damage was already done.

Today, disabled preborn children are some of the most vulnerable children in the United States. Pregnant mothers are often pressured into aborting these children by medical “professionals” who believe the life of a disabled preborn child is not worth saving. In many cases, the diagnoses rendered is not nearly as horrific as pregnant women are led to believe. But, even when the diagnosis proves as tragic as expected does that give us the right to devalue that life and send that child to slaughter like an animal?

And, this kind of inhumane targeting is not reserved only for preborn children in the womb. In fact, because of the way we view these children, they remain vulnerable even after they are born and even when they are so-called “wanted” by their parents.

Simon  inspired Simon's Law

Simon inspired Simon’s Law

Enter little Simon Crosier who was labeled by the medical establishment as “incompatible with life” after he was born with Trisomy 18. His mother, Sheryl Crosier said doctors encouraged her to have an abortion when her 20 week ultrasound revealed that their unborn son might have a cleft lip, she refused. But, even though Sheryl and her husband wanted Simon, he died December 3, 2010, 88 ½ days after his birth, after health care workers refused to medically treat him as any other child. The couple discovered this after they reviewed his medical records.

Today, Sheryl warns parents that this could happen to any child at any age. She said that a child could fall off a bicycle and hit their head or end up in the ICU after a car accident.

    “Are you going to allow your physician that you met for the first time to determine the value of your child? Or do you want to be the one making their medical decisions? Parents need to realize their parental rights can be taken away and violated.”

As a result of Simon’s tragic and unnecessary death, in December of 2014, the couple attempted unsuccessfully to get Simon’s Law passed in the state of Missouri. On February 16, 2016 Simon’s Law was again introduced in the Missouri state legislature by State Rep Bill Kidd. HB1915, which has yet to make it out of Committee, has two basic components. First a health care facility must let a patient, resident or a prospective patient or resident know if they have a futility policy that will limit care in any way. Second, a do-not-resuscitate order cannot be placed in a minor child’s medical file without the written permission of at least one parent or legal guardian.

Sheryl told Live Action News that a similar law in Kansas will be heard there this week. SB437, also dubbed Simon’s Law was introduced on February 10th is expected to be heard Thursday March 3, 2016 by the Kansas Committee on Public Health and Welfare. She said that she is optimistic that the law will pass but stressed that the law needs to be adopted nationally.

    “There is a need for ‪Simons Law‬ nationwide. In many hospitals across ‪‎America‬ it is legal for a ‪‎child‬ to be denied life-sustaining care and for a ‘‪‎Do Not Resuscitate‬’ order (‪‎DNR‬) to be placed on a child’s medical chart without parental knowledge or consent.”

Sheryl is encouraging everyone to sign Simon’s Law Petition and she is looking to get this law into other states. “This is happening everywhere. Parents deserve to know what is going on with their child,” she said.

If anyone is interested in filing Simon’s Law in their state, Sheryl said that they can contact her by e-mail at simonismyname@att.net and they can get updates on Simon’s Law by following them on Facebook and on their website.

Planned Parenthood’s Trojan horse:pretend to encourage kids to talk to parents about sex

Lets Talk Vid Image PP
Planned Parenthood has rolled out a Let’s Talk Campaign, pretending to want teens to talk to parents about sex. But the message here is pushing BIRTH CONTROL, not abstinence.

PP Lets Talk teens to parents

In the video- the teen asks her parents about BIRTH CONTROL and asks if Gay people should be allowed to marry- and, of course, the parent agrees in both circumstances:

Planned Parenthood claims they want to talk to parents to start the conversation.

Do not be fooled by this rational campaign- Planned Parenthood is a Trojan horse who wants parents to think they have the best interest of kids in mind. Planned Parenthood opposes all manner of “Parental Consent” on abortion and when in the school- they undermined parental authority and teach the most despicable sex to your children.

They teach these things to teens:

Planned Parenthood AsktheExperts

Just what will Planned Parenthood teach the kindergarteners? Here are some possibilities:

MASTURBATION= OKAY !

Explicit Body Descriptions:

The pictures from “It’s Perfectly Normal” contained pornographic images of cartoon characters engaging in various sex acts.

Parenthood’s web-site “Teen Talk” where “foreplay” is explicitly detailed and “outercourse” is promoted as safe sex, contraception, psychological relief and sexual fulfillment.

Maybe Planned Parenthood will hand these out to the children:

Or kids can learn this:

Or they can watch this vid:

In addition, when parents give Planned Parenthood access to their teens or minors even in text messages, Planned Parenthood can access your kids by cell phone w/o your knowledge or permission. They can tell them about Sex and even sell them abortions like the “Morning after pill” – just think if you found some adult was texting your kids about sex, they would go to jail….but…Planned Parenthood will go to the bank instead ! SPEAK OUT !

I am a biological terrorist because my kids didn’t get a vaccine

REPOSTING FROM THE MATT WALSH BLOG ( READ HERE )

I am a biological terrorist because my kids didn’t get a vaccine
Posted on September 7, 2013 by The Matt Walsh Blog

Yesterday my wife took the twins to the doctor for a checkup. They wanted to start our babies on their “vaccination schedule,” but, oddly, our schedule differs slightly from the one predetermined by the medical establishment. I’m not against all vaccines, but I am strongly opposed to the idea of blindly handing our babies over to the nurse and saying, “Here! Pump whatever chemicals you want into them. I’ll be in the lobby reading a Highlights magazine, give me a holler when it’s over.” In other words, vaccinating is a conscious decision that my wife and I wish to make, not one with which we will passively cooperate.

That said, one of the vaccines we chose to forgo is the Hepatitis B immunization. I mentioned that on Friday’s show and it elicited many responses from folks who are, apparently, quite offended that we didn’t consult with them before making a choice about our children’s medical treatment. You know, all parenting decisions you make these days must be debated in front of the People’s Peanut Gallery, where the verdicts are swift and harsh. Here’s one email I received, it’s an apt representation of several other similar messages:

Matt,

Your conspiracy theories about vaccinations would make me laugh if they weren’t so infuriating. If you don’t get your children vaccinated for Hepatitis B or any other disease, YOU PUT EVERYONE AT RISK JACKASS. I get so sick of you antivaccination retards. Society gets rid of diseases when everyone comes together and vaccinates. I don’t want my child to get sick just because you don’t understand science. There are many ways to get Hep B and people get it all the time without have sex aand you’ve now put your child at risk for it which puts everyone at risk. Moron. Get them vaccinatedstop being stupid. You are a horrible parent and you’re putting your kids at risk idiot.

– Kevin

Against my better judgment, I responded to Kevin. I’m posting it here as a general response to all of the other Kevins of the world.

Dear Kevin,

I’m not a conspiracy theorist — I’m a conspirator. You see, about a year ago my wife and I conspired to conceive children. I won’t go into detail about the steps we took to bring this plot to fruition, but suffice it to say that our plan succeeded. Now, as the result of this dastardly scheme, we are “parents”. This parental title has dangerous implications; it gives us the terrifying ability to do all sorts of things. For instance, most horrifically, we can make decisions about our kids’ well being and health care without conferring with the public, the government, the community, society, or even you.

Also, we are able to forgo vaccinations so that we can turn our children into biological weapons, which is the clear intention of anyone who doesn’t keep their kids “up to date” on their shots.

Other than that, I’m not sure what conspiracy you’re referring to. When I speak of the potential adverse side effects of the Hep B vaccine, or the studies linking it to liver and brain damage, or the obvious risks involved anytime you inject disease-causing organisms into the body of a small child, I am not proposing a “conspiracy,” nor am I theorizing anything. I am not a “no vaccines at all” type of person, but I don’t think you’re in a position to ridicule those folks if you’re in the “any and every vaccine is automatically OK with me, and I’ll let the doctors give it to my child without doing any research about it beforehand” camp.

I don’t judge you for falling in line and following the trends — even when the trend involves introducing potentially dangerous chemicals to the undeveloped immune system of your infant children — but I do lament how your sort tends to lash out mindlessly at anyone who strays from the “normal” path. When I call your behavior “mindless,” I don’t mean it as an insult. I mean it as an observation. After all, there certainly isn’t anything thoughtful or rational in shouting about how your child is directly at risk of contracting an STD because my kids didn’t get a vaccine.

Hepatitis B is, in fact, primarily a sexually transmitted disease. In most cases, you contract it by making unhealthy lifestyle choices. I notice that, in your world, our “society” should work to eradicate illnesses by turning our babies into lab rats, rather than by telling adults to stop making foolish and destructive decisions. Why do you yell at my family for choosing to forgo an unnecessary medical treatment that would expose my children to high levels of aluminum, and not at the legions of people who refuse to forgo promiscuous sex and intravenous drugs? I have to be honest, I’m somewhat disturbed by the implication that all of our children are budding drug addicts and philanderers, so we ought to immunize them in anticipation of this eventuality.

There are other ways to get this virus, I grant you. Prison guards who have fecal matter and urine hurled at their faces all day are in a high risk category. Folks who work in hospitals are logically required to be vaccinated. A child whose mother has the disease can, unfortunately, contract it. You hear about rare cases of patients in hospitals coming out of a medical procedure or blood transfusion with Hepatitis B, but then again, if you can’t trust your doctor to give you blood that isn’t tainted with a chronic illness, you probably shouldn’t trust him to give shots to your baby. If you do a lot of traveling in third world countries, that will likely increase your Hep B chances as well.

But it’s simply ridiculous to assume that every human being in the country has an equal shot at becoming Hep B positive. You’re at risk if you put yourself in, or are put in, a risky situation. Plain and simple. Even the CDC — hardly a bastion of anti-vaccination propaganda — has to go to extraordinary lengths to explain how the average baby might come down with a dangerous STD. Their “Hepatitis B fact sheet” tells us the virus is spread to children when their mother is infected, or when they are bitten by an infected person. They also list “eating food chewed by an infected person” and “sharing a toothbrush with an infected person.”

Let’s break these down, shall we? We’ve already covered the infected mother scenario. My wife doesn’t have Hepatitis B, not that it’s any of your business. I’m not sure if your kid typically eats food chewed by strangers, but my children are under a strict “only you chew your food” rule. I think it’s pretty easy to avoid sharing a toothbrush with a Hepatitis B carrier, in fact it’s easy to avoid sharing a tooth brush with anyone. As for being gnawed on by a sick person, how often do you think a child gets Hepatitis that way? Now contrast that likelihood with the chance of suffering an adverse reaction to the vaccine, and tell me which is cause for greater concern?

You may dispute the link between vaccines and autism, or vaccines and SIDS, but you can’t dispute the non-debatable link between risky decisions and diseases like Hepatitis B. You’re exposed to Hep B if you put yourself in a compromising situation, and usually that involves having random sex or using hardcore drugs. As far as I know, nobody has ever been crossing the street on some random morning only to be suddenly run over by a Hepatitis B truck. There’s nothing especially surprising about Hepatitis B and how it’s spread.

For the record, despite my stance on the vaccine, I am actually very intent on preventing my kids from getting Hepatitis. But my prevention strategy involves raising them and teaching them not to make horribly self destructive decisions. Outside of that, if they grow up and decide they’d like to work in a hospital or a prison, or they sign up for a mission trip to Ethiopia, then it might be time to talk about expanding their “vaccination schedule.”

Kevin, let me do you a favor and give you a tip for the next time you decide to valiantly defend the honor of prescription drug companies and their miraculous vaccines: If you want to convince people like me — that is, people who aren’t terribly worried about gaining the approval of the peanut gallery — you best abandon the “get vaccines for the sake of the collective” argument. Call me selfish or narcissistic, but I don’t parent my children based on what I think my neighbors might want me to do. Parenting isn’t a democracy. It isn’t up for a vote. Never in a thousand years would I force my children to undergo a medical procedure simply for the sake of being a cultural team player. If you see it that way, please email me the next time you take your kid to the orthodontist. I’m going to need a vote before you make any decisions about braces or retainers.

There are many factors that have contributed to this special brand of lunacy where we pretend that chronic illnesses like Hepatitis B can’t be easily avoided by adjusting our lifestyles and making healthy choices, but I think intellectual laziness and cowardice play a significant part. It’s the same thing that entices health teachers and politicians to make the maniacal claim that HIV is an “equal opportunity disease.” We’re deathly afraid of coming anywhere near anything that might be construed as — GASP! — moralizing. Instead we go around babbling about how everything impacts everyone in the same way, and our own decisions are never to blame when bad things happen.

You called me a bad parent, so I guess this is the part where I’m supposed to stick my tongue out and call you a bad parent in return, and then we can spend the next 45 minutes shooting spitballs at each other in the back of the classroom. But I don’t want to play that game because, for all I know, you’re a great parent. I’m not a big fan of your communication skills, nor do I find you to be the most critical of thinkers, and I’m not particularly inspired by your grammar and sentence structure, but I’m betting you still love your children and strive to do what you think is best for them. If that includes getting your infants immunized against STDs, then Godspeed. I don’t have a say in the matter, and I pray that it stays that way. My only very humble suggestion is that you MAKE the DECISIONS, instead of “going along with it” because the doctor will give you a dirty look if you don’t.

Also, as a general rule, always proofread when you want to call someone else an idiot.

God bless,

Matt

A License to Parent?

Planned Parenthood founder, Margaret Sanger, was a member in good standing with the racist American Eugenics Society. Sanger had boards members who were known for their racist writing and Sanger published many of those in her publications. Sanger called for parents to have a QUOTE: LICENSE TO BREED controlled by people who believed in her eugenic philosophy. She wanted all would be parents to go before her eugenic boards to request a “PERMIT TO BREED“. So much for Choice , huh?

Sanger also called for those who were poor and what she considered to be “morons and immoral‘ , to be shipped to colonies where they would live in “Farms and Open Spaces” dedicated to brainwashing these so-called “inferior types” into having what Sanger called, “Better moral conduct”.

Senate Considers Dangerous United Nations Treaty Undermining Parental Rights

Posted in Disability, Parental Rights, United Nations with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 12, 2012 by saynsumthn

PURCELLVILLE, Va., July 11, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ — United States Senate Committee to consider dangerous United Nations treaty; parental rights advocates cry foul.

The U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) was signed by President Obama in July of 2009, but it has not received the necessary two-thirds approval from the United States Senate for ratification. Recently, Obama has pushed the Senate to ratify the CRPD, and the treaty is now scheduled for its first official action in the Senate on Thursday.

Michael Farris, co-founder and chairman of the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA), is scheduled to testify before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and highlight the concerns of parents across the county.

“We all want to show our love and care for people with disabilities,” Farris said. “This treaty, however, is not the way to do it. This treaty will give United Nations and government agents, not parents, the authority to decide all educational and treatment issues for disabled children. All of the rights that parents have under both traditional American law, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act will be undermined by this treaty.”

J. Michael Smith, President of HSLDA, agrees, “The question is, who should make critical decisions regarding the care and raising of children who have disabilities? Their parents or United Nations social workers?”

The CRPD, if ratified by the U.S. Senate, would transform the parent-child relationship by establishing a new legal standard for dealing with children with disabilities: the best interests of the child standard. The CRPD states in Article 7: “In all actions concerning children with disabilities, the best interests of the child shall be a primary consideration.”

“Parental rights will be eviscerated by the mandatory application of the ‘best interest of the child’ standard,” said Farris. “If parents think that private education is best for their child, the CRPD gives the government the authority and the legal duty to override that judgment and keep the child in the government-approved program that the officials think is best for the child.”

“There is no need for the Senate to ratify the CRPD, as our nation’s state and federal laws already protect our precious loved ones with disabilities. It is outrageous that U.S. senators would support a treaty that surrenders U.S. sovereignty and family integrity to unelected U.N. bureaucrats.”

The U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations is scheduled to hold a hearing on the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities on Thursday, July 12.

Home School Legal Defense Association is a nonprofit advocacy organization established to defend and advance the constitutional right of parents to direct the education of their children and to protect family freedoms. Visit us online at http://www.HSLDA.org.
