Seventh graders can now be vaccinated without parents’ knowledge or permission.
Vaccine marketers scored a landmark victory in California in October 2011 when Jerry Brown fetched the stick and signed into law a new bill allowing schools to vaccinate 12 year olds without informing their parents.
That’s right. Kids now choose.
Falling into step with other compliant governors like Rick Perry and WA state’s Christine Gregoire, Brown demonstrated once more his allegiance to the bottomless coffers of the drug industry lobby. Common sense, putting children in harm’s way, running roughshod over parent’s rights, responsible science – not relevant. Seems the world just got a little worse.
There can be no doubt that the underlying motive behind the new law was the promotion of the controversial Human Papilloma Virus vaccine [see HPV chapter] .
But the new law never mentions HPV.
Although this vaccine has been on the adolescent Vaccine Schedule for 5 years now, many parents are losing confidence in it lately and have been opting out of the vaccine for their 12 year olds. The primary reasons are
Lack of demonstrable necessity
Lack of scientific testing
Verifiable and admitted harmful side effects
The reader is referred to the above chapter  for the details of the confused rationale that has always haunted the marketing of this strange vaccine, as doctors struggled to justify the vaccine’s necessity at all.
But with this new law, now they have done something unprecedented in vaccine promo by allowing the state to come between parents and their own children.
The whole science discussion is a study in confusion and misdirection, which is just the way Merck wants it – Merck being the inventor of the Gardasil HPV vaccine, and the ultimate beneficiary of the new law. To try and grasp what they have just accomplished by this bill, the parent must first review some basic facts about
.CANCER OF THE CERVIX
Cancer of the cervix now affects some 13,000 American women, 4,000 of whom die.  Most deaths are in the worst living environments in the US, among the most immune-suppressed groups. But like with all cancers, the cause of this one remains unknown.
Cervical cancer has been declining dramatically in the United States, from nearly 15 cases for every 100,000 women in 1975 to nearly 7 per 100,000 in 2008.  Nothing to do with vaccines.
In the 1970s, herpes simplex virus was proposed as a possible cause, but that hypothesis was soon abandoned after studies proved inconclusive.
In the 1990s the next candidate suggested was Human Papilloma virus.  But the link was never proven.
For this the first cancer vaccine, the PR department at Merck was hard put to come up with a convincing scientific rationale – how any HPV vaccine could possibly prevent cancer of the cervix.
The primary obstacle was that HPV could not be proven as the cause of any cancer. Or any disease at all, for that matter. But is it precisely this claimed causation between HPV and cervical cancer that necessitates the vaccine at all, right? Without hard evidence, the vaccine is exposed as a useless sham.
.NO PROVEN CONNECTION: HPV AND CANCER
Here’s the short version of how the HPV supposedly causes cancer of the cervix, according to Merck scientists.
First of all, in any cancer, we’re talking about a normal cell that mutated and then began to make copies of itself, unchecked.
The creators of the HPV/ cancer myth are pretending that the HPV came along and attacked some normal cells and mutated those cells and caused them to begin replicating themselves out of control – cancer. And that this is happening on a mass scale even though we just discovered it. And worse, that a vaccine can neutralize that type of attack on normal cervix cells.
Any scientist not on the payroll of Merck will see the problem with this new ‘hit-and-run’ theory right off the bat. The simple fact is that viruses don’t replicate in cancer cells. [Duesberg, 3]. Before this marketing campaign for HPV vaccine, no virus was ever claimed as carcinogenic.
But it gets even worse than that. The HPV vaccine doesn’t even contain HPV! True. Just some particles from the virus. Look it up. [1, 2]
