Thousands of people braved the cold weather and headed to the Washington State Capital last week (February, 2019) to voice their opposition to HB1638 which would restrict parental exemptions to childhood vaccines. Much like 2015 which saw many states try to pass legislation to make vaccines mandatory, the current reason being used to eliminate vaccine choice is an "outbreak" of measles in the State of Washington that has reportedly affected 50 people, with no deaths. Due to the fact that the corporate-sponsored "mainstream" media routinely censors anything negative associated with vaccines and simply republishes the pharmaceutical narrative that all vaccines are safe, many legal and medical experts showed up in Washington to educate lawmakers on the other side of the debate. New York University Law Professor Mary Holland spoke about the myth of "herd immunity" and how this theory is not a legal basis for forced vaccinations. Dr. Brian Hooker, PhD, also provided testimony. Dr. Hooker was the person that CDC whistle-blower Dr. William Thompson called in 2014 to reveal how the CDC withheld data linking the MMR vaccine to autism. Medical doctor Toni Bark testified on her experience in dealing with the growing number of vaccine injuries, and Dr. Robert Rowen, from California, also weighed in via his Facebook Page as he exposed the deficiencies in one measles study that the corporate media is using to attack those opposing mandatory vaccines.
