The National Vaccine Information Center has issued an urgent call for all Americans concerned about the federal government forcing new vaccines on an unsuspecting public to contact their U.S. senator immediately and ask him or her to remove certain vaccine-related sections to a piece of legislation that will be voted on this afternoon.
In a Facebook post, the NVIC warned that HR 34, a.k.a. The 21st Century Cures Act, contains provisions that would authorize the Food and Drug Administration to fast-track all new vaccines (Sects. 3091 and 3092). In addition, the group said, the measure would also provide a liability shield for fetal vaccine injury or death caused by vaccines administered during pregnancy.
“The 21st Century Cures Act is a drug company stockholder’s dream and a consumer’s worst nightmare,” said Barbara Loe Fisher, NVIC co-founder and president. “Making experimental drugs quickly available for the sick and dying, who voluntarily choose to use them, is one thing but Congress should not be greasing the skids to license experimental vaccines that government will recommend and legally require healthy children and adults to use. It is a prescription for disaster.”
The House originally passed the 21st Century Cures Act in July 2015, but then the legislation stalled. Many of the provisions were broken into smaller pieces of legislation, but over the Thanksgiving holidays, they were all reassembled into HR 34, which runs more than 800 pages.
URGENT action needed – call your Senators
The website Age of Autism reported that the House passed the measure overwhelmingly – 344 to 77. The bill would provide an additional $9 billion in funding to the National Institutes of Health, while authorizing the FDA to accelerate the rate of medical innovations (and vaccines).
That’s not speculation, either. In a June piece for the New England Journal of Medicine, notes Age of Autism, Dr. Jerry Avorn wrote of the legislation, “The law encourages the FDA to approve devices that were tested in shorter or smaller clinical trials and drugs that weren’t even tested in controlled clinical trials.”
Here’s what else the law (written largely by Big Pharma and the medical device industry) does:
— Encourages FDA to rely more on surrogate measures than actual clinical end points in order to assess drugs and devices;
— Makes immediate changes to current drug evaluation standards with respect to antifungals and antibiotics by enabling FDA to approve them without clinical trials if the agency decides that the untested medicines can treat serious or life-threatening infections. Avorn wrote that the “legislation would empower the FDA to accept nontraditional efficacy measures drawn from small studies or other sources.”
— Would allow the approval of new drugs approved more quickly and without placebo-controlled trials.
Why is the legislation needed? “It appears to be an early Christmas present for the Pharmaceutical Industry,” Age of Autism reported. “And a bag of coal for the rest of us.”
The bill represents a point in our history where the central government is assuming authority and control over families regarding mandatory vaccines and, perhaps, other medical procedures in the future.
CALL your two U.S. Senators and ask to speak to the person who is in charge of HR 34, The 21st Century Cures Act. Tell him/her that it is critical all 3 sections, 3091, 3092, and 3093, are removed because they fast track the approval of all vaccines and shield drug companies and vaccine administrators from liability for fetal injuries and deaths caused by vaccines marketed for and given to pregnant woman. Tell them that if this bill passes without these sections removed, you will be demanding that your state legislators REMOVE ALL VACCINE MANDATES from state law.
