Target: Gavin Newsom (D), President of the California State Senate
Goal: Mandate vaccines for all children in California.
Currently there are over one hundred confirmed cases of measles in California and the number of cases continues to rise as some parents attempt to intentionally infect their children. Parents are sending their children to “Measles Parties” in which kids are exposed to an infected child in an attempt to build a natural immunity. This is nothing short of child abuse and it must be stopped. New legislation must be introduced that forces all children to be vaccinated against preventable diseases immediately.
Measles is a horrific disease that has a number of unpleasant symptoms such as cough, sore throat, fever, and a red rash that covers the entire body. Beyond this initial unpleasantness, 30 percent of people infected with measles will encounter some other complication from the disease. Complications range from simple diarrhea to pneumonia. In some extreme cases the pneumonia can lead to cranial swelling. Putting children through this process intentionally, when it is completely preventable, is more than just bad parenting, it’s child abuse. People should not be allowed to put the lives of their children in danger for any reason, no matter how compelling.
There has been a push-back against vaccinating children in recent years due to a 1998 study linking vaccines to autism in children. The study has since been discredited, however, and the doctor responsible for it has lost his medical license. There is even evidence to suggest that much of the data contained within the study was falsified.
All agree that personal freedom is important, but this is not a matter of opinion. This disease, and others that people are not vaccinating their children against, are completely preventable and to not have children vaccinated is child abuse. Please sign below to demand these children be protected from misinformation from over a decade ago.
Dear Senate President Newsom,
There are currently over one hundred confirmed cases of measles in California and the number of cases continues to rise. Measles is a terrible illness that causes painful symptoms and can even lead to more serious conditions such as pneumonia. The fact that parents in your state are intentionally infecting their children with this horrible and 100 percent preventable disease is more than disturbing, it’s child abuse on a massive scale. I am writing to demand that you implement legislation that forces all parents to vaccinate their children, regardless of the wishes of the parents.
Any person that thinks their child is better off not being vaccinated is either not fit to be a parent or has been lied to. Many that choose to not have their children vaccinated cite a study that linked vaccines to autism. This study has been discredited and the doctor that conducted it has since lost his medical license. No child should be forced to endure a sore throat, fever, or pneumonia because their parents are uninformed. Please act now before any more children are forced to suffer.
[Your Name Here]
