First there was Obamacare, and now Democrats want to require parents to have their children vaccinated in order to attend public school.While the idea of preventing children from contracting some other parent’s kids “cooties,” the ” Vaccinate All Children Act of 2015,” which is sponsored by none other than Florida Democratic Representative Frederica Wilson, and like Obamacare, is nothing more than the federal government trying to dictate American healthcare.
Let’s call this bill “Kid-O-Care.” This is Obamacare for your kids.
“Wilson’s bill, if passed, would for the first time establish a federal vaccination requirement to attend school,” reports the Autism Action Network. “Current vaccines policies are set by the states, but with the increasing federal control over schools with No Child Left Behind and the Common Core, Wilson’s bill maybe [sic] an indicator of what is coming.”–NaturalNews
Here is how Wilson’s bill reads:
For a State or a political subdivision or other public entity of a State to be eligible to receive a grant under this section, the applicant shall demonstrate to the Secretary’s satisfaction that… the State requires each student enrolled in one of the State’s public elementary schools or public secondary schools to be vaccinated in accordance with the recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.
Where are the parents here?This bill would essentially shuts out parents.
“This [bill] would be an unprecedented expansion of the federal government into an area of law and policy long recognized as the preserve of the states,” adds the Autism Action Network. “It ignores the principle of informed choice as the bedrock of any ethical medical procedure, and eliminates any parental say over what is injected into their child’s body.”
