The Clarion Ledger posted the video they recorded outside the Capitol building in which CoDirector, MaryJo Perry explained exactly what we are seeking. The post read:
"Mississippi Parents for Vaccine Rights says it’s time for the state to allow parents to have the legal right to select, delay or opt out of vaccines.
What do you think?"
We have kept a close eye on the posts and are beyond encouraged that it has received 252 'likes' thus far making it the most liked post during the month of January. The post has also logged 263 comments; the overwhelming majority of which represent people all over the state of Mississippi voicing their support and desire for our legislation to pass.
Below is the comment posted by CoDirector, Lindey Magee:
"Speaking on behalf of MPVR, we are simply asking for what 48 healthier states already grant parents…the right to choose regarding their children's healthcare.
Vaccination is a GOVERNMENT PROGRAM. So many hesitate to trust the government; WHY should the government be guardian of my child regarding vaccinations? Why should unelected bureaucrats who've never met my child have a say in her health care?
Are those of you here speaking out in concern for what we are asking aware of how many vaccines our children get today? (and to be clear, I am not at all concerned about the pharmaceutical trolls who crawl out of the woodworks with their scripted fear-mongering or our out-of-state people who enjoy the fundamental right we are seeking) OUR CHILDREN ARE RECEIVING 49 DOSES OF 15 VACCINES BEFORE KINDERGARDEN
...beginning with the HepB vaccine on their first day of life. HepB…a vaccine that protects against a sexually transmitted disease…a vaccine that wears off in 10 years…a vaccine whose package insert lists:
encephalitis (swelling of the brain)
thrombocytopenia (ITP a chronic blood disorder)
elevated liver enzymes (hello jaundice)
Parents simply want to make an educated, thoughtful decision with their doctor regarding how to vaccination their children. No other aspect of healthcare is one-sized-fits-all like the government vaccine program.
CDC calls vaccines "unavoidably unsafe" yet vaccine manufacturers and doctors enjoy 100% liability immunity. Billion dollar pharmaceutical companies cannot be sued when one of the 9 children in 2013 die from this mandated shot. HepB is responsible for the lupus death of a MS girl, Tambra Harris in 2009.
Most parents want to vaccinate according to their doctor's recommendations. Educated parents want to work with their doctors to determine what is best for their unique, individual child.
Many parents active with our group have children who have suffered vaccine injuries of varying degrees. When these parents have another child, they simply desire to delay or omit a vaccine or vaccines that are responsible for often tragic outcomes in their older children.
***The state of Mississippi's archaic, outdated vaccine law requires children first be vaccine injured before a parent can begin the uphill, long battle to secure said child from further damage. THAT IS BARBARIC!
48 other states, people. MISSISSIPPI FAMILIES ARE BEING EXPLOITED for it's reputation of ignorance and lack of education. It is time for it to stop! Must Mississippi always be dead last?! We bring up the national rear in everything that matters. This is about a parents right to protect their child. It is 49 doses of 15 vaccines today. Think of your future grandchildren; they will need a third thigh to accommodate all the shots!
Children in Mississippi are sick and dying from our horrendous compulsory vaccine schedule. (Don't even beat the dead horse of pertusis outbreaks; 89% of whooping cough cases are found in the adequately vaccinated according to the CDCs own Anne Schuchat…that vaccine is a failure at preventing anything but tragic adverse reactions!) Doctors, pharmacists, nurses and other educated people are packing up their families and leaving this medical nightmare.
WE JUST WANT OPTIONS! We are due the same fundamental rights parents in 48 other states have."
