Religious vaccine exemptions explode more than 50% in New Jersey

In Hunterdon County, New Jersey, there are increasing numbers of parents who are saying NO! to the recommended immunization schedule from the Center for Disease Control (CDC). As reported by the Press of Atlantic City, in the 2009 – 2010 school year, 3,865 children opted out. In the 2015 – 2016 school year, the parents of another 9,500 children refused routine school required vaccinations. That’s an increase of over 50% within a six-year time span. The majority of parents from were reported to have used the religious exemption, which, along with a medical exemption that New Jersey also allows, eliminates the “childhood requirements that are mandatory for kids to attend daycare or childcare, public and private schools.”

In many states, as reported by the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), the pressure has been mounting to eliminate personal, philosophical and religious exemptions, and New Jersey is no exception. Parents have already been stripped of this choice in California, West Virginia and Mississippi. When New Jersey legislators introduced measures to make obtaining a religious exemption more difficult, it failed. Weighing in on this matter with “hope” that both religious and philosophical exemptions will be completely eliminated is well-known vaccine pusher Dr.Paul Offit, who now runs a Vaccine Education Center while employed at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia as an attending physician.

This is the same Dr. Paul Offit who, in 2008 was interviewed by Sharyl Attkisson and quoted then as suggesting “babies can tolerate 10,000 vaccinations at once.”

Many parents have come to understand that the pharmaceutical industry is a vaccine creating, chemical pill pushing, money making machine. And when ingredients like aluminum phosphate, formaldehyde, polysorbate 80, ethanol, detergent, thimerosal, human albumin and a host of other adjuvants and toxins are going to be injected into their children to “keep everyone safe,” it gives pause and rightly so.

Dangerous ingredients are one thing. Dr. Alex Vasquez, DO, DC, ND, FACN, who runs the  International College of Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine (ICHNFM) in Barcelona, Spain, goes further. Dr. Vasquez questions the paradigm of how a vaccine works. “The idea that an antibody response to a vaccine is proof of clinical immunity is completely absurd,” he says.

Robert Kennedy, Jr. and Robert DeNiro recently offered a $100,000 reward for “anyone who identifies a peer – reviewed scientific study that demonstrates that mercury in vaccines is safe.” The pharmaceutical companies are shaking in their boots due to Trump’s possible assignment of Kennedy to head a commission on autism. As reported by The American Conservative,  Trump is in favor of vaccines, but has said that “massive combined inoculations and simultaneous vaccinations may be producing a wave of doctor-inflicted autism.”  This is a dramatic and bold change from the previous administrations who have turned a blind eye to the vaccine issue. In particular, when President Ronald Reagan pushed through the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act in 1986, it gave vaccine makers legal protection from “civil product liability.” Since that time, vaccine injured litigants have had to file for compensation from an arduous federal program that pays, if they win, with taxpayer dollars.

As many have done in the past, the families of young children in New Jersey are questioning the force fed vaccine paradigm. Parents are under enormous pressure to research and balance the potential risks of each individual vaccine on their loved ones. It is a complex issue fraught with contention. But with sold out shills like Dr. Paul Offit and the tremendous lobbying influence of the pharmaceutical industry, it is imperative that all families have the freedom and the inalienable right to just say no.
