Parents in Marion County, Oregon lost their battle in court Wednesday to choose whether or not their eight children would be vaccinated after losing custody to the state last year.
A ruling from The Oregon Court of Appeals said that the parents did not have the right to exempt their children from forced vaccinations after child welfare workers and the Oregon Department of Human Services fought to obtain a court order demanding the children receive multiple vaccinations last year.
The court also decided that since the state had custody of the children, it had the right to make all their medical decisions without the parents’ consent. Although the children are living with relatives, they are considered wards of the state.
The parents, who say vaccinations are against their religious beliefs, had their children removed for undisclosed reasons last year after the state claimed concerns over their welfare. Despite the ruling, it appears the children have yet to be vaccinated while the parents have the option of appealing the ruling to Oregon’s Supreme Court.
Given the fact that children now receive as many as 26 shots by two years of age as compared to the 1960’s number of 4 shots, parents choosing not to vaccinate in Oregon alone now accounts for 5.8% of kindergartners according to the Center for Disease Control.
Several studies including a recent independent German study from 2011 also found that vaccinated children had at least 2 to 5 times as many disorders and diseases as compared unvaccinated children.
Also given the news that German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other government officials received special, additive-free H1N1 vaccines, not containing the toxic mercury derivative Thimerosal, formaldehyde, aluminum salts and monosodium glutamate (MSG), the number of people choosing to opt-out of vaccinations has increased, in return causing an increasing overreach of governmental authority on peoples personal decisions.
Last year, Natomas school officials in California went door to door with nurses attempting to vaccinate children at their homes after a new state law passed requiring students entering seventh through 12th grades to be vaccinated or wave their right to attend school, despite multiple districts ignoring the mandate.
The medical industry has also increased its push for more vaccinations despite the recent revelation that vaccine manufacturing giant Merck was exposed by two of its own scientists last year for faking vaccine efficacy data for over a decade by spiking blood samples with animal antibodies. Colorado also approved a vaccination mandate for healthcare workers and fired 150 employees who refused to receive shots.
At this time it is unclear whether or not the parents will appeal the court’s decision.
