California allegedly on the way to medical tyranny

After making it mandatory for all school-age children to be vaccinated, California is now mulling plans to strip adults of their right to decide whether need vaccination or not. The California State Legislature recently heard SB792 that would make vaccination mandatory for adults with no personal exemptions. Failure to comply with the potential law will attract criminal penalties.

Vaccineimpact.com reported, "SB792- The first US adult vaccine mandate with NO personal exemptions and CRIMINAL penalties for failure to comply will be heard in the California Assembly Human Services Committee this Tuesday July 14th."

SB792 has spawned from SB277, which forces all children attending school or daycare facilities in the state to be vaccinated against various contagious diseases like measles, influenza and pertussis.

The controversial bill would eliminate an adult's right to exempt themselves from some or all vaccines. There will be only medical exemptions approved by a qualified doctor and defined by the measure.

It would make California the first state in the U.S. to require mandated vaccinations for all adults working in childcare facilities, including all private and public school early childhood education programs, daycare centers and family daycares. Starting Sept. 1, 2016, a person shall not be employed at a childcare facility if he/she hasn't been immunized against contagious diseases.

But, opponents of the bill criticized the measure, saying it would eliminate medical autonomy, undermines personal freedom and crush religious freedom. Some alleged that California is on the road to medical tyranny.
