AMA Wants Minors to Get Vaccinated Without Parental Consent

AMA Wants Minors to Get Vaccinated Without Parental Consent

The American Medical Association (AMA) has voted on June 10, 2019 to give “mature” children the power to consent to vaccinations and override the wishes of their parents if they choose. According to Sarp Aksel, MD, who represents the AMA in New York, “Minors who have demonstrated capacity and who are able to provide informed consent should be able to receive vaccinations regardless of the flawed beliefs of their guardians.”1 2

The resolution by the AMA was voted on at the organization’s 2019 annual meeting in Chicago, Illinois earlier this week. The measure itself carries no binding legal authority. It is a policy recommendation, and it is aimed at influencing state legislators throughout the United States to introduce legislation and pass laws reflecting the AMA’s policy.

As reporter Kate Raines wrote in a recent article in The Vaccine Reaction:

As it applies to vaccination, several states already use the “mature minor” doctrine to give minors the right to make vaccines decisions and other decisions about medical interventions without parental knowledge or consent.3

“Mature minor” laws are already in place in Alaska, Arkansas, Alaska, Arkansas, Delaware, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee and West Virginia. A bill was introduced earlier this year in New York that would permit children 14 years of age and older to be vaccinated without the permission of their parents.3

AMA board member Bobby Mukkamala, MD said, “Allowing mature minors to provide informed consent to vaccinations will ensure these patients can access this type of preventive care.” Neither Dr. Mukkamala nor the AMA defined what they mean by “mature” children or specified who should have the authority to make that determination.1 2

Kevin Reilly, MD of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) noted that, despite the AMA resolution allowing minor children to ignore parental consent rights and get vaccinated if they wish, parents would still be required to pay for the vaccinations. He also pointed out the danger the new AMA policy poses in the form of “chipping away at parental rights.”1

    Oh good, maybe a “mature minor” should also be able to go grab some whiskey and cigarettes after said vaccine. A 14 year old does not make medical decisions for themselves, period.

    So,it goes on. The Medical Gestapo wants our children’s bodies and the Entertainment World wants their souls. We need to choose the lesser of evils and move to the most family friendly state when all else fails. Eventually, the best states for families will be the most successful states in all categories of life. Our ancestors did it, we can do it too. UHaul :o)

    Too young for tobacco, alcohol, or driving, but magically “mature” enough to decide on a medical intervention that – oh ya! – makes a tidy profit for many!!

      Grab some gender bending ‘prescriptions’ on your way out the door while you’re at it kid! It’s fun to totally screw with every natural system in your body! We’ll see you next month because you will be back.

    As usual the parents will be left to pick up the pieces. What youth does not want to me seen as mature. Will the “mature youth” be given a medical paper for their records of their new vaccination status? Will the vaccinator make sure that paper has location, persons, status, date and such for future reference?

    Sure it will.

    You had me at “mature” children! What is their definition of “mature” or “mature children”? I know far too many adults that I would not categorize as “mature” enough to make sound decisions about their own health, careers, or finances either, for that matter. Decision making does involve a certain amount of maturity, but only because with maturity critical thinking skills are (hopefully) acquired. When people of any age believe only one side of a story or issue, when they don’t make any attempt to read or listen to the other viewpoints from their own, when they ignore the data and simply repeat the meme or mantra of the day, what maturity are they exhibiting? What sound decisions are they capable of making? And if these “mature” children are damaged or destroyed – will the state or county or school or doctor/nurse that injected them take care of them for the rest of their lives? Wow, just wow.

    Our country is turning into a DICTATORSHIP!
    Parental rights are being yanked away from it’s citizens.
    This is a dangerous precident. What parental rights are to be taken away from the parents and put into the hands of the government next?
    We cannot allow this to happen.
    Even people that believe they are giving “informed consent” for their children to be vaccinated really aren’t because the greedy, powerful, influential, and controlling corporate and political entities are BRAINWASHING the citizens.
    I sure hope that the people of these UNITED STATES of AMERICA can realize this and fight against this governmental control, whether or not they agree with vaccination.
    Wake up America and demand your rights before you are living in Dictatorship.

    “Mature minor” designation should be based on a test which at a minimum includes
    1) testing for knowledge about existence of and understanding of the consequences of the National Vaccine Injury Act 1986, which gives full legal immunity to Big Pharma from any and all consequences of their negligence in manufacturing defective vaccines.
    2) testing for an understanding of the drug distribution network and commercial incentives given to doctors to vaccinate (why are conflict of interest disclosures routine for investment advisors but not for doctors?).
    3) testing for an understanding of the fatal flaws in the statistical methods central to studies used to declare vacciens “safe”.

    Let’s then see how many minors qualify for such a designation.

    Children 14 and over will be put in a closed room with an authority figure with an agenda and expected to comply. This is not about giving minors a choice. This is about allowing the state to step in in loco parentis and coerce children to sign the form. These could be teachers, principals, school nurses or other school officials. It could also be a family doctor or even a dentist examining or treating the child in the absence of the parent. Or it could be made part of a “routine” health screening involving vision, hearing, etc. “oh, just sign here” without letting parents know this will be happening.

    COLLEGES & other commie orgs ALLOWED THE STUDENTS TO MAKE CHILDISH DECISIONS IN TAKING OUT INCREASED FEDERAL SCHOOL LOANS, AND, EACH TIME THE COLLEGES RAISED THE PRICES OF TUITION AND BOOKS, ET AL.
    _ THE AMA AND OTHER Medical & Insurance GROUPS WHO MAKE HIGH PROFITS FROM DRUGS/TREATMENTS ALREADY CHAT We The Poor People!!
    _ THEY RELY ON INEXPERIENCED YOUNG PEOPLE TO MAKE THE WRONG DECISIONS THAT MAKE THE GROUPS RICHER.
    _ IF THEY LET KIDS CHOOSE VACCINATIONS, WILL THEY ALSO PAY FOR THEIR RESULTANT MEDICAL CARE, FUNERALS, ETC.???
    _ NO THEY WILL NOT.
    _ THEY WILL MERELY APPLY MORE MONEY TO BRIBING MORE CONGRESSJACKS TO FURTHER RAPE AMERICA BY MAKING MORE LAWS FOR THE RICH FILTHY.
    _ WHY ARE THEY SO GODDAMNED? Because Earthlings are greedy and short-sighted, by nature—and success & wealth often propel them to cheat evermore.
    _ Similarly, how did NY become SO leftist stupid? WHY is the west Coast (&CO) so leftist stupid? But even rich States like TX who pretend to have conservatives in power are nightmarish sold-out, SOULED-OUT “Republicans,” in that State which has often been Democrat-controlled.
    Hollowood helped pollute the west coast. Texas to and up the west coast are also overrun by illegal aliens, and those who make money off them.
    _ I’m old and will be gone, soon. Your young choir had better get the world spread onto TV, social media and the Chinese-made fancy phones—-if any of you value your grandchildren, etc Those in power, even when not sociopaths, believe their wealth will continue, and protect their own families.. Juries are controled by the garbage prosecutors. YOU are Not “Represented.” YOUR only vote remaining is if you can et rich enough. AND THIS IS THE ONLY & LAST COUNTRY ON EARTH WHERE THERE’S A HOPE OF RETAINING LIBERTY.

    Who is going to be the person taking care of the “mature minor” if he/she has a negative reaction to the vaccine? Not the AMA. And who is going to take care of the person for life, physically, emotionally, financially, if the vaccine causes the “mature minor” injuries for life? Not the AMA. It sounds like the patients are in control of the sanitarium.

    So can the mature minor, being able to make decisions for him/herself and noticing their friend(s) are no longer walking after their gardasil shot, choose not to vaccinate against their parent’s wishes as well?

    This country is so upside down in so many ways. My ancestry goes back 7 generations in the US, while my son/husband trace back to the Mayflower. And I’ve seriously contemplated leaving it all behind because things have gotten so ridiculous with no real signs of a turnaround…

    Would that not mean they expect “children” to accept the “flawed” beliefs of the AMA and Drug Manufacturers (drug dealers!)? And who amongst the brilliant “doctors” would determine the level of maturity of the “children”? Oh! The drug pushers! Of course!

    CDC is a criminal organization created to help drug companies prosper. They are irresponsible and harming our children. 89 vaccines from birth to 18 is causing a generation of damaged children. Never saw any in the 60s. There weren’t vaccines like this back then. We are a health generation.

    They already have these laws in Canada. At age 12, children can “consent” to vaccines.

      It’s a good thing Canada remains completely irrelevant.
