One of the scariest and most infuriating ideas that political liberals have is that they have more right to your children than you, as a parent, do. They believe that they have a right to pour whatever nonsense that they want into your kids’s heads and to try to turn your kids against you and your values.
What you may not know is that, in many cases, liberals in charge of the school systems and in government bureaucracies believe that they have a right to do things to your children’s bodies without your knowledge or permission. It’s disturbing and dangerous to the children, to say the least, and in one leftist city, parents have decided to take a stand against it. Li Hai writes,
Four parents filed a lawsuit against the District of Columbia on Monday, alleging the district’s recently enacted law deprives parent’s constitutional rights and endangers children’s safety by allowing minors as young as 11 years old to get vaccinated without their parent’s consent or knowledge.
Children’s Health Defense (CHD) and Parental Rights Foundation represented the four parents in the lawsuit, which was filed in a federal district court in the District of Columbia.
“The [law] is reckless, unconstitutional, and needlessly endangers children’s lives by stripping away parental protection and the protection of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986,” CHD president and general counsel Mary Holland said, referring to Washington’s Minor Consent for Vaccinations Amendment Act of 2020, which became effective in March.
The law allows children eleven years of age and older to take any vaccines—including COVID-19 vaccines—without parent’s consent or knowledge, if the vaccine has been recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the child is “capable of meeting the informed consent standard.”
Now, what person in their right mind thinks that an eleven year old child is “capable of meeting the informed consent standard?” There are eleven year olds who still think that they may get super powers once they hit puberty! They’re children and, by definition, don’t have the maturity or perspective to make medical decisions for their bodies which could have permanent consequences.
But the insane left thinks letting kids do that to themselves, against their parents’s wishes, is a good idea.
