California Governor Jerry Brown has reportedly signed into law the contentious Senate Bill 277, which eliminates the freedom of California parents to opt their children out of vaccinations for personal reasons. All school-age children without an approved medical exemption will now be forced to get vaccinated in order to attend public or private school, a tyrannous mandate that has already driven many objecting parents to homeschool their children instead.
The text of SB 277 explains that the bill, which was signed by Gov. Brown on June 30, will “eliminate the exemption from existing specified immunization requirements based upon personal beliefs,” while at the same time allowing “exemption from future immunization requirements deemed appropriate by the State Department of Public Health for either medical reasons or personal beliefs.”
In other words, California parents will no longer be allowed to just fill out an affidavit for their children declaring a personal objection to vaccinations. They will instead have to go through DPH to obtain permission to opt out of vaccines, either for medical reasons or for personal reasons that the state deems worthy of an exemption.
It’s a declaration of war against medical freedom, a line in the sand that demarcates government tyranny in direct opposition to the will of the people. And the fallout is that many parents are now going off the radar in pursuit of an education for their children that isn’t contingent upon first injecting them with neuro-damaging chemicals and genetically altered live viruses.
According to reports, Gov. Brown was eager to sign SB 277 into law, delivering an official signing statement just one day after legislators brought the bill to his desk. It’s a tune completely different from the one Gov. Brown was singing three years ago when he issued a signing statement in conjunction with Assembly Bill 2109 that seemingly supported both personal and religious vaccine exemptions.
