When Doctors Become Lawmakers: Medical Tyranny in California

California State Senator Dr. Richard Pan is a co-sponsor of a new proposed California bill, SB 277 [2], which seeks to remove the personal belief exemption to vaccinations in California.

AB 499 – California Allows Children as Young as 12 Years Old to be Vaccinated Without Parental Consent

California is already one of the most tyrannical states in the U.S. when it comes to forced vaccination policy. In 2011 Governor Jerry Brown signed into law AB 499 which allows minor children as young as 12 years old to be vaccinated with the Gardasil vaccine without the knowledge or consent of their parents. Legislators, which included Dr. Richard Pan, felt that they knew better than parents which children needed these vaccines and took away parental choice. Today, school officials and other medical professionals in California can usurp parental choice when it comes to certain vaccines designed for sexually transmitted diseases, and give the Gardasil vaccine and the hepatitis B vaccine to minor children as young as the age of 12.

Merck is the manufacturer of the Gardasil vaccine, and in 2011 John Seiler of Cal Watchdog [3] cross-matched the votes for AB 499 in the Legislature with Merck Corporate PAC Contributions in 2010 and came up with this list (which included Dr. Pan, then an assemblyman):

Senate [4]:

Kevin De Leon, D-Los Angeles, $2,000
Ed Hernandez, D-West Covina, $2,500
Elaine Alquist, D-San Jose, $1,000
Noreen Evans, D-Santa Rosa, $1,500
