Don't blame me. I'm just saying it doesn't matter how many times ppl post on this forum, its going to happen.You will have to get the immunizations or your child cannot attend school. So the only other option is home-school. My kids are safe and have all their shots. I don't have to worry about them contacting these diseases. It's the ones that wont get the immunizations that wont be able to attend school with my children (thank goodness). I Hope you are educated enough to home-school is all I can say.
If you children are protected like you say with the vaccines you have nothing to worry about right?

Nothing has changed about the religious exemption. There are a lot of uninformed people that don't even know about the religious exemption. Nobody is sticking my child with a substance that instantly kills some kids and causes diseases later in life for others.

Goverment likes for people to think it is a law. It is not a law to have the shots. They get the schools in on it alone with the doctors. This tactic is used to scare people into getting the kids shots. So, as the drug companies can make a killing on them.(MAKE MONEY). So , all you Sheeple can go ahead let them scare you into having shots. Ya'll need to go do some research . www. infowars. com IF they get the general public to believe in having to have them. It inturns makes it a lotttttttt easier for them to pass laws. That goes for anything they do in this world. Talk about terriorism. Our goverment does a hell of a lot of it if you ask me or anyone that aint a SHEEPLE.....(sheeple) is a follower of others. They do things cause others do it. Dont be a follwer. Be a leader and stand up for what you really believe in. Before they take away our constitutional rights.

You are correct, there is no law saying children must be vaccinated to attend school.

(2) In the absence of an epidemic or immediate threat thereof, this section shall not apply to any child whose parent or guardian shall file with school authorities a signed, written statement that such immunization and other preventive measures conflict with the parent's or guardian's religious tenets and practices, affirmed under the penalties of perjury.

(c)

Those are school rules not a law. Trust me, I went through this with DHS. Even their own nurse said there are no LAWS requiring children to have vaccinations to attend school.

((WRONG)) WRONG.....they might have requirements but it aint a law. There is a difference between requirements and laws. They lead people to believe it is a law by the mire mention of required..You aint got to do anything . Everyone does have a choice. Some tend to follow a heard of other sheeple . Like I said. Everyone can make a decision, most tend to let someone else control theirs. For instance, No one can make you sign a paper. You have the right to rufuse to. The party involved might try every avenue to get you to sign. Remember everyone when you sign some sort of paper you giving something away. Think about it.

I'm not blamin you. I blame the paid politicians. but it is people like you that buy into their (and the big pharmacutical companies) that feed into their hype. I will claim religious reasons if i have to. I don't think the government should be telling me what I should or should not inject into my children. Do you want the government to tell you that you MUST inject your children with drugs with dangerous side effects? That is exactly what happened to a friend of mine. CPS tried to take away her children because she refused to give her children meds that had dangerous side effects. Come to find out, that CPS agent was being paid by a big pharmaceutical company.(The CPS agent admitted it)
If you think that the government should mandate what we should be giving our children, then apparently you do not want the freedom to decide for yourself what is safe and what isn't. some people can't make those decisions and trust our government to decide for them. I would rather make those decisions for myself and my children. I do not trust our politicians (who are paid by the big med companies and others) to decide for me.

Btw, let me ask you, are your children safe from other children who have hiv/aids? How do you feel knowing that your kids are in class with children that could have a incurable infectious disease? How do you protect your children from that????

This is one question everyone that is for the immunizations has avoided answering.

first of all, autism's CAUSE has not been proven -- derpa derpa

second of all, the "risk" of autism doesnt hold a candle to the "guarantee that your child will f$$%king DIE and COUGH TO DEATH IN YOUR ARMS" if they catch whooping cough.

yes, let us all neglect our children's health - why not just move to a 3rd world country where vaccines arent available? solves your problem right there.

retarded homeo"pethetic" parents are going to ruin their children's health by ignoring EXACTLY what has brought america out of the grips of diseases like POLIO and Whooping cough ... wow

i mean sure, some people believe in religion over science... some people believe in propaganda over science.... but those vaccines are the reason you arent rolling around CRIPPLED with polio...... grow up - your parents knew what they were doing... hopefully they gave you half a brain and you will figure it out as well

I know sheeple when I see them. Those that tend not to futher educate themself. Those that let others form their way of thinking. BRAIN washing.If the shots kept people from having polio and whooping caugh, then why is it stil around even after those that took the shots. Exsplain that one. You are not looking at the whole picture either. They lace the shots with dangerous chemicals. We as a nation are slowly being poisoned. Some people out there dont give a shit I see. The aids shot is not doing jack. See how it has died down now. Just cause you dont hear about it dont mean people are cured. Media controls what is put out to the public. Radio stations and Tv stations are monitored on what they can put out to the public. If they don't do what they told. They get pulled off the air. I wish more people had common cents. Guess that is a lost cause to say that. People have been DUMBED down for years. ((shakes head))

IMHO, the whole point is whether or not the government forces their choice of drugs into our children or whether or not we CHOOSE to vaccinate. WE should have the choice.

Nowadays, pharmaceutical companies are not in it to help people, they are in it to make a big profit. Things are a lot different now than they were when the polio vaccine came out. Come on out and join us in the 21st century.

Vaccines don't cause or contribute to Autism? No proof?

http://www.naturalnews.com/027178_autism_vacc...
Rates of autism have skyrocketed 1000% since 1990, yet defenders of vaccines and the pharmaceutical industry keep scratching their heads in confusion: What could be causing this? Lots of clues point to vaccines as one of the primary contributing factors to increased rates of autism.

FDA Fraud: New Studies Prove Vaccines Cause Autism
by EVELYN PRINGLE

FDA Fraud: New Studies Prove Vaccines Cause Autism On Feb 9, 2004, the National Autism Association issued a press release that reported on one of the larger studies under review based on the Center for Disease Control's Vaccine Safety Datalink. Under independent investigation, the Association reported, of the CDC's data children were found to be 27-times more likely to develop autism after exposure to three thimerosal-containing vaccines (TCVs), than those who receive thimerosal-free versions.

Let that sink in.

Twenty-seven times more likely to develop autism. Then consider that our government regulatory agencies had this information for years and deliberately kept it hidden from the public.

This failure to warn the public was not due to negligence
or laziness, it was a deliberate cover-up and it continues today.

How do we know they had it for years? Because the staff for Rep Dan Burton (R-Ill) obtained an FDA internal e-mail written on June 29, 1999, by former FDA scientist Peter Patriarca, that offered a "pros
and cons" assessment of the dishonest statement about Thimerosal in vaccines that the FDA was about to release, and described the questions that could be raised upon its release:

(1) FDA being `asleep at the switch' for decades, by allowing a potentially hazardous compound to remain in many childhood vaccines, and not forcing manufacturers to exclude it from new products.

No state should have the right to mandate any such thing, vaccines, Gardasil, birth control and flourides mandated in our water are just osme of the insane thinking of [ well ] insane power hunger, eugenic supporters.
People need to start thing for themselves, seek knowledge, read, research many things and made moral and sound decisions for themselves. They also need to know of the deaths things like HINI have cause each decade they used them, our own 1 yr old grandson was given 5 vaccines, with the HINI by a nurse without permission of the parents and he died within 48 hrs. Most contain Mercury which goes directly to the brain, you also need to check your meds and anti depressants such as prozac also containing these. The rise in infant mortality, serious birth defects should never be happening in this day of technology. Sum it all up to why ? And it will bring you all to Agenda 21- the United Nations depopulation, which calls for a mass reduction of the population, and NO VIRGINIA, THERE IS NO OVER-POPULATION. Use China as an example, the more then kill their infants and people the more their people reproduce, it is a natural survival mode that kicks in. The body can heal itself it was meant to do that, on the flip end is also the victimizing for profit and big pharma makes endless streams of money keeping you sick when all the cures are right in your face. STAND UP, THINK, SEEK TRUE KNOWLEDGE NOT TV PROPAGANDA and say NO
