Imagine your kid coming home from school and saying, “Mom, I got vaccinated today.” A December law passed in Washington, D.C., allows students to choose a COVID-19 vaccination without parental consent. A child’s health group has filed a lawsuit to put a stop to the nonsense.
The lawsuit said the law “subverts the right and duty of parents to make informed decisions about whether their children should receive vaccinations, by both depriving them of the opportunity to make those decisions and by concealing from parents that their children have been asked to consent to vaccinations or may have indeed been vaccinated.”
In addition, the lawsuit said, “In fact, the Minor Consent Act states that medical providers who administer vaccines under the Minor Consent Act shall seek reimbursement directly from the insurer without parental knowledge or consent.”
According to a Newsmax report, “The act allows government-recommended inoculations of children 11 years and older if a doctor determines that a minor is ‘capable of meeting the informed consent standard.’”
Unbelievable! COVID-19 vaccines are no longer about your health, but rather about getting your kids on board whether you like it or not.
The COVID-19 vaccines are not equal with the vaccines kids receive for other issues like small pox. These are vaccines created in the last year that have not received long-term testing, particularly among children. These are emergency-approved injections that have bypassed many of the usual testing standards due to the pandemic.
If someone wants to get the vaccine, that’s their business, but giving it to someone’s kid without parental consent should be illegal.
In fact, such medical actions generally are. How D.C. approved an exception is a story worth investigating. The decision took place last October in a 12-1 decision by the DC. Council, and many are only now discovering what occurred. There are not a lot of happy parents out there on this issue.
The Children’s Health Defense and Parental Rights Foundation is representing four parents who object. There are certainly far more than four parents fired up about this one, especially when we look across the country.
Our kids aren’t guinea pigs for government experiments. They are also not free to take medical procedures without parental consent.
The law sets a scary precedent that should concern all Americans. If the government can give our kids medical procedures just because our children want them, where does the list stop?
Instead of working without parental consent, schools need to continue working more to partner with parents. Yes, there are many bad family situations, but that is no excuse to quit trying. Parents are the primary individuals responsible for educating their children, even when their kids are in a public school setting. Working together is better for all involved, allowing partnership between schools and families.
The Minor Consent Act stands in need of major dissent. If parents can’t continue to oversee the medical decisions of their own kids, we’re in a lot of trouble.
