We should all have the right to decide about vaccinations

This month, August 2015, the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) is planning on voting on something they should have no say in: whether or not vaccines should be mandatory in Canada.

This month, August 2015, the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) is planning on voting on something they should have no say in: whether or not vaccines should be mandatory in Canada.

The right and responsibility to make an informed choice between a patient and a doctor is not something that should be taken away from people who reside in a free country.

This is not about the nonsense we see in the media regarding vaccines; this is about a medication that is being pushed without ethics against our constitutional rights.

Vaccines are one of the many medications that doctors do not talk to patients about. How can people make informed choices when doctors refuse to ask and answer questions regarding vaccines? It’s time for people to ask questions and for doctors to be held liable for answering those questions.

The creators of vaccines acknowledge these risks and reactions. There are pamphlets on each vaccine that list the many risks, reactions and even the possibility of death. Yet we constantly hear how “safe and effective” they are.

While there are assumptions about who should and should not receive certain vaccines, there are no scientific studies that help us know for sure who will be the unfortunate ones to have a reaction. It is literally a game of (medical) Russian roulette.

As for the individuals who do suffer from these adverse reactions, there is very little compensation, and the herd that these individuals tried to protect will turn on them if they question how safe and effective vaccines are for them as an individual and not as a herd.

We are not a herd, we are individuals. And like those individual rights and responsibilities, we are losing our place in this world.

Don’t give up your right to make an informed choice!
