(NaturalHealth365) For a man sworn to serve the people, California State Senator Richard Pan couldn’t get away from them fast enough. The state senator behind California’s SB277 forced vaccination law showed off his talents as a sprinter during a recent visit to his office by filmmakers from the movie, Vaxxed.
Rather than engage in a discussion of vaccine dangers and attempt to justify his unwavering push for a vaccine mandate that takes away parental choice in the matter, Sen. Pan refused to face Vaxxed director Andrew Wakefield and producer Del Bigtree. Instead, as the Vaxxed team spoke with Sen. Pan’s secretary to request a few moments of the senator’s time, he slipped out a back door and quickly made his way down the hall and out of sight, even as Bigtree called out to him.
Controlled politician in the pocket of big pharma
The movie Vaxxed brings to light fraud and deception on the part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in covering up data revealing a link between the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine and the autism epidemic. The film documents the events surrounding the confession of Dr. William Thompson, senior scientist at the CDC. Dr. Thompson led the agency’s 2004 study on the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine and its link to autism, and later confessed that the agency had omitted crucial data in its final report revealing a causal relationship between the MMR vaccine and autism.
The movie includes gripping interviews with physicians, pharmaceutical insiders, politicians, and parents of vaccine-injured children. The end result is the divulgence of a disturbing deception that contributed to the steeply risen rate of autism, a situation some experts believe to potentially be the most catastrophic epidemic of our lifetime.
It should come as no surprise that Senator Pan did not want to speak about vaccine dangers with the film’s team. Senator Pan’s persistence in pushing for a vaccination mandate that strips parents of their rights to make medical decisions in the best interest of their families should also come as no great surprise. Pan and other California lawmakers have been described as puppets of big pharma – and for good reason.
According to the Sacramento Bee, pharmaceutical companies, together with their trade groups, gave more than $2 million to members of the Legislature in the session year just prior to the introduction of SB 277, a figure that represents about 2 percent of the total raised, records show. Nine of the top 20 recipients were positions of power, either legislative leaders, or Assembly or Senate health committee members.
The top recipient of big pharma’s boatload of cash? None other than the camera-shy vaccination mandate champion Sen. Richard Pan, at $95,000.
Big pharma’s generosity did not stop there. The industry also donated more than $500,000 to outside campaign spending groups with the power to help elect certain legislators. According to state filings revealed by the Sacramento Bee, the leading pharmaceutical companies also spent nearly $3 million during the 2013-2014 session lobbying lawmakers, the governor, the state pharmacists’ board and other influential agencies.
Pro vaccine advocates use scare tactics to gain favor with the public and media
California’s struggle with the mandatory vaccination issue was spurred further by an outbreak of measles at Disneyland in 2014. Vaccination proponents, with the very vocal backing of mainstream media, blamed an increasing number of unvaccinated children for the upsurge in measles associated with the theme park. This accusation begs the question, however: If the MMR vaccination is effective, then can an unvaccinated child with measles put a vaccinated child in danger?
Despite media reports to the contrary, no scientific-based link between unvaccinated children and the measles outbreak at Disneyland was uncovered. In fact, there is strong evidence that newly vaccinated children may have caused the outbreak, since live-virus vaccines shed, potentially infecting both unvaccinated individuals and vaccinated individuals alike, the latter due to the known ineffectiveness of the MMR vaccine.
Parents forced to choose between dangerous vaccines and education
Senate Bill 277 eliminated the personal belief and religious exemptions for California schoolchildren. SB 277 was signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown on June 30, 2015, and will go into effect on July 1, 2016, becoming the most stringent vaccine mandate in the country.
Parents who did not already have a “Personal Belief Exemption” on file by Dec. 31, 2015, lost their right to a free education in public or private K-12 schools for their children, unless they obtained a difficult-to-get medical exemption from a physician. The law is far-reaching, affecting not only K-12 public and private education, but use of licensed daycare facilities, in-home daycare, public or private preschools, and even after-school care programs.
The law also leaves the door open for the State of California to add to the list of mandated vaccinations at any time it feels necessary. At the time SB277 was signed into law, California parents were forced to allow their children to receive 40 doses of 10 federally recommended vaccinations or lose their rights for a classroom education for their children.
