A new bill has just been introduced in Florida that would make the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine mandatory for public school children, both boys and girls, between the ages of 11 and 12. This bill has been met with an outcry from concerned parents who do not want to risk their children’s health with one of the riskiest vaccinations on the market.
Florida already requires vaccinations for tetanus, mumps, polio, and other diseases, and HPV could become the next in line.
The vaccine is used to prevent the HPV virus that can cause cervical cancer, but for many, the risks of the vaccine itself are not worth it. The virus is transmitted sexually, and most of the cases of infection go away on their own.
When it comes to prevention of any disease using modern medicine, there are always pros and cons to be considered. This becomes an especially touchy subject when any procedure, especially a risky one like this, becomes mandatory.
Perhaps that’s why the news has some concerned parents contemplating a move to home-schooling.
Some Parents May Homeschool to Avoid Mandatory Vaccines
Cervical cancer is important to avoid, but are the risks of the HPV vaccine worth the purported benefits? That’s what parents in Florida and across the country are attempting to figure out now that word has been passed as to the nature of the controversial bill.
The risks of cervical cancer besides HPV include birth control pills.
A woman who is on oral contraceptives for over five years increases her chances of cervical cancer by 60% according to one review, which examined 28 different studies on the matter. Other risks include smoking, a poor diet low in fruits and vegetables, and taking some pharmaceuticals.
With the case of HPV vaccines, many parents are furious that they will no longer have a choice of making such an important health decision for their children.
“If we’re not given the choice to make our own health care decisions, then what are we given the choice to do,” told one parent to ABC Action News.
She said she would homeschool instead if the bill passes into law.
Another parent agreed: “Homeschool would be an option right away. I don’t believe that anyone should be forced to vaccinate their child.”
Why do these parents have such as strong opinion about the issue? Because while the CDC and other organizations admit that all vaccines like pharmaceuticals come with side effects, the HPV vaccine injuries have been some of the worst, and not enough people in the modern medical field are acknowledging this issue.
Cervical Cancer is Preventable Without a Vaccine
Cervical cancer takes 10 to 20 years to develop, meanwhile the vaccine only works for about five. To make matters more perplexing, the current vaccine might not even prevent cancer at all.
Meanwhile, because this cancer takes so long to develop, there are ways to prevent it without the vaccine by getting pap smears and treating any abnormal cells with modern or holistic medicine.
While trying to prevent cervical cancer with the vaccine, there are also serious side effects to consider.
At least 70 healthy have girls died soon after receiving this vaccination (the FDA is not required to act in response to any side effect that occurs in fewer than one in 10,000 people, as noted by Women’s Health magazine).
The FDA insists it is safe, noting that HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection and that it is also capable of causing cervical and other cancers.
But even the CDC admits that the immune system clears this infection about 90 percent of the time within two years, adding to skepticism and scrutiny over the risk vs. reward factor for getting the potentially dangerous HPV vaccine.
Risks and Concerns with HPV Vaccines
While the drug companies and their political allies may consider the vaccine to be “necessary,” the fact remains: the HPV vaccine is one of the riskiest on the market, especially due to the severity of injuries that have been recorded.
It has caused both girls and boys to be paralyzed, even leading to deaths.
At 12 years old Chloe Brookes-Holder started having debilitating health issues after the second dose of an HPV vaccine.
Starting with chronic myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), a neuro-immune disorder, her condition led to complete mental and physical exhaustion, pain, inflammation, and a two-year long paralysis. Four years after the injury, Chloe is still fighting for her health.
A 13-year-old also was injured by the HPV vaccine after three shots of Gardasil by Merck. What started with nausea and exhaustion, soon turned to paralysis.
Unfortunately the boy, Colton Berrett, lost his battle and passed away on January 5, 2018. His case has increased the spotlight on HPV risks and led to even greater opposition.
Looking at the Gardasil insert nervous system disorders and paralysis have been reported in post-marketing consumer experiences.
There are more children like Chloe and Colton out there.
In the case with Gardasil, the risk of injuries is much greater than many patients and doctors are willing to accept.
Gardasil Researcher Spoke Out Against the Vaccine
In 2009, one of Merck’s lead researchers said that Gardasil’s marketing has been overly aggressive and dishonest about its true benefits versus risks. Dr. Diane Harper said that the benefits of the vaccine last only five years the most, not a lifetime as promised, while the risk of an injury is much higher than disclosed to patients — perhaps even bigger than the risk of cervical cancer itself.
“The benefit to public health is nothing, there is no reduction in cervical cancers, they are just postponed. The risks of serious adverse events including death reported after Gardasil use…were 3.4/100,000 doses distributed. The rate of serious adverse events is on par with the death rate of cervical cancer. Gardasil has been associated with at least as many serious adverse events as there are deaths from cervical cancer developing each year. Indeed, the risks of vaccination are under-reported. Parents and women must know that deaths occurred,” she told to CBS News.
Dr. Harper added that while she agrees with Merck and the CDC that the vaccine is safe for most girls, she takes serious issue with the drug companies’ continued insistence on sweeping the many deaths caused by the vaccine under the rug.
“Parents and women must know that deaths occurred. Not all deaths that have been reported were represented in Dr. (Barbara) Slade’s work, (and) one-third of the death reports were unavailable to the CDC, leaving the parents of the deceased teenagers in despair that the CDC is ignoring the very rare but real occurrences that need not have happened if parents were given information stating that there are real, but small risks of death surrounding the administration of Gardasil.”
Opposing (and Stopping?) the Mandatory HPV Bill
Looking at the facts, making the HPV vaccines mandatory is problematic for many families. If Florida bill passes, it will go into effect on July 1, 2018.
Ultimately, it’s up to concerned citizens and the general public to try and stop this bill, because large organizations who are supposed to be there to protect us do at the moment are failing to do so.
As Women’s Health magazine reported, “the FDA is not required to act in response to any side effect that occurs in fewer than one in 10,000 people.”
That is a really high number of people that need to be injured before the FDA realizes the severity of this issue.
