What If You Said NO To The “Greater Good?”
What If “They” Forced You To Do It Anyway?
I am always interested in reading articles about vaccines. The juicier and more foolish they make “Mainstream Medicine” look, the better. The people pushing the Vaccine Agenda should know better, but alas, they make money with it. LOTS of money.
Before I continue with this article, please know that I am anti-vaccine. We don’t get them. We don’t give them to our children. Until someone can prove they’re safe, we say NO. Until then, we gladly burden ourselves with research, articles and accounts of what is happening with vaccines.
The thing that gets me even more fired up than vaccines themselves, is when well-informed, innocent people are forced to get vaccinated against their will. OR when he/she/they get(s) into trouble for saying “NO.”
I recently came across a link to a Vaccine Article on Facebook.
The main questions that I interpreted from the article are, “Is it ethical to force people to volunteer for vaccine research?” AND “How can we get more volunteers for the research?”
They’re running out of people who want to volunteer for vaccine clinical trials! Could it be that maybe more people are waking up to the fact that vaccines aren’t entirely safe?
The authors, Susanne Sheehy and Joel Meyer are the authors of this article called, “Should Participation in Vaccine Clinical Trials be Mandated?” It appears in the AMA (American Medical Association) Journal of Ethics.
These authors talked a lot of ethics in this article. They talked about who their volunteers are (students and the unemployed who are given very little compensation). The authors argued that if volunteers were to be given more monetary compensation, they may rush into the studies without being fully informed about risks (or caring much). So, the clinical trials don’t pay out a lot of money.
Since the majority of volunteers are college students or the unemployed, they state that the participants are some of the most poor and vulnerable people in our society. Is that ethical?
Mandatory Cooperation: Since Everyone Else Does It, We Should Consider It
In 66 countries, military service is mandated and the men and women do the for the “Greater Good” of their societies. Mandatory Volunteerism for vaccine trials would be like this. There is always a chance of injury (or death), but military service is something that’s done to serve the larger segment of society.
Three Ways To Get More Volunteers
The first way is obvious. You force people to do it. If they don’t like it, they can go to jail, be fined, or they can be forced to anyway. The authors state that would go against a person’s identity of autonomy, and the result of that may not be good. People like to be autonomous or at least associate themselves with being independent. The authors offered other ethics in which people could be forced to be mandatory volunteers and seem almost dismayed that people want to be autonomous and independent, as if it’s some sort of nuance each of us has.
The second way involves a method in which people would volunteer in advance. They would register with a research facilities long before they are needed and then called up when it’s time to go into the lab. The authors write that this would be one of the best ways to enforce mandatory volunteerism, while helping people to feel like they are being autonomous. The problem with this is that people don’t know what they’ve signed up for when they do it in advance. What if they decide that the vaccine they’re being asked to test is too dangerous? Is there a way out of this decision?
The third way is actually involves a marketing principal I’ve learned about both in my college Mass Communication classes and in marketing courses I’ve taken…
I call it “Scarcity Marketing.” When people are told that there is something they need, but they can’t have it, it can create a scarcity mentality. We often want what we can’t have, especially if there’s a really good reason that we need to have it.
What the authors propose is that when an impending epidemic comes along, if people think it’s really scary and HUGE, more of them will be likely to volunteer to do trials for the vaccine that has the potential to keep them safe. And…at first, vaccine manufacturers would make only enough for clinical trial volunteers, which would prompt more volunteers than they need to test it out. Pretty clever, huh?
To illustrate this idea and explain a little bit better, I’ll make up a quick story here:
“One day, a few people in India got sick from something and died suddenly. Then, this disease started to spread. Indian citizens were getting sick in droves, and then a few people died. Then, someone got sick from the same thing in Italy. A little girl in Venice died and health officials everywhere were starting to worry.
“Night after night, the United States news showed pictures of the little Italian girl who died. They showed pictures of her family. They told about her dreams and hopes. She was only 9 and the disease had taken her quickly.
“Soon, a few people in the United States got sick. In three weeks, ever since the disease reared its ugly head, 8 people had died worldwide and their stories were broadcast everywhere. But…another story began to be broadcast. A story of “hope.” One of the Pharma companies was working on a vaccine and they were almost done. Problem was, they only had enough in their first batch for clinical trials. They were short on volunteers and anyone wanting to sign up was welcome. They would be benefited greatly by being the first to be vaccinated.
“People signed up in droves as the nightly news talked of impending vaccines shortages and worries that the Pharma company would only have enough vaccines in the second batch for elderly people and sick people. Most people were afraid to go out, afraid of anymore deaths (so far, none) and most of all, afraid that they wouldn’t be able to get the vaccine.
“Two months later, after the second and third batch of vaccines were made, newscasters and media alike stop reporting about the impending epidemic. There had been 11 total deaths from it. People stopped getting sick from it and the disease halted.
“Two months after that, a viral news story (not aired on the Major Media Networks) goes out about the recall of the vaccine the Pharma company had manufactured just 4-5 months prior. It turns out, that this drug was causing strokes in at least 20% of the people who got it. 15% more people were having heart attacks very soon after they took it. They got it off the shelves and that story was only referenced slightly in the evening news.”
This is “Scarcity Marketing” (except for the last part of the story, which I wanted to make more interesting, because “What If” something like that happened in the midst of an epidemic and clinical trials? What if…) Vaccine injuries and death can (and do) happen, and that’s most likely the factor making it harder to get volunteers. Who wants meager compensation when he or she could have to live with the negative, unexpected consequences of being vaccine tested?
Vaccine Trial Flaws
Yes, there is no guarantee that a vaccine will protect you from an illness. In fact, a vaccine could cause sicknesses that you didn’t expect. It could damage your immune system, making you susceptible to the most mild common cold. It could kill you. It could make you have seizures. It could increase your chances of getting cancer. OR it could increase the likelihood that you’ll come down with an auto-immune disease.
Some vaccines have been tested more long term than others; probably the ones that have been around awhile. Their side effects are usually listed Online or on a package insert that comes with the vaccine. Make sure you read them and be informed about what can happen to you or your child when a vaccine is administered.
Some vaccines, however, are not tested long term. Volunteers are only able to test the short term reactions when a sudden epidemic breaks out and Pharma companies are scrambling to be the first to patent and sell their vaccines to the public. Since vaccines have animal toxoids and carcinogenic substances in them, the long term consequences could be disastrous.
Be well-informed when you rush out to get vaccinated against the next flu that is predicted to kill millions all over the world. (It hasn’t happened yet).
When You Say NO, The State You Live In Might Try To Make You Do It Anyway
People are already being mandated to get vaccines…but not as volunteers. The vaccine mandates seem to predominantly involve children, because in many cases, when a parent disagrees with a doctor or social worker about whether or not their child will be vaccinated, the doctor or social worker could decide to involve the police “for the safety of the child.”
In Pennsylvania, a mother who recently told her son’s pediatrician that she didn’t want him vaccinated was first harassed by the doctor and then visited by a state trooper that her son’s pediatrician called, because he claimed that she was “acting suspicious.” (Pennsylvania is both a religious and medical vaccine exemption state).
At the time we were practicing selective vaccinations, the military nurse threatened to report my husband to his Commanding Officer (we were in the Air Force at the time) if I didn’t let him vaccinate my son with all the vaccines the CDC said he needed. He then told me what we were doing was illegal. I called his bluff, told him “NO” and my son and I left happy and healthier.
There are states that will try to make parents give Pharma drugs to their children against their will too…
Whose Choice Is It?
Do you decide what happens to you and your children? Or does the State? Whose choice is it anyway?
Some states would have you believe that what you do with your body and your children’s bodies is their choice. I disagree.
