When you decide to have a child, it’s a big deal. You are in charge of another human life for at least the next 18 years. Sometimes this is longer. When you decide to have a child, you fear all of the unknowns. You are terrified of messing it up, so you research just about everything…
You look for the safest car seat. You spend hours on various safety websites. You compare brands and testimonies. You make sure it fits your car. You even find the safest seat in your car. You may (and should) get it inspected by a certified car seat inspector for proper securement. Some even buy a whole new car when they’re expecting! We did… a few times.
You look for the best crib and mattress. You’re scared to death of SIDS (which, by the way, is not suffocation) so you look for a breathable mattress. Maybe it is hypoallergenic or some fancy cooling gel type. You spend time comparing reviews.
You look for a sleeper for an additional place to sleep. You know infants sleep a lot and want eyes on them all the time, so you buy a sleeper. You might want them in your room for the first few weeks or months and can’t fit the crib, so you buy a sleeper. You don’t buy any sleeper, you buy the one that rocks, changes positions, and plays music or soothing sounds. You buy the one that gets the best ratings. You want ultimate comfort for your baby.
You look for a stroller. Does it come with the car seat? What if I want one for jogging or different terrain? Are the tires plastic or rubber? Does it come with a weather shield? Maybe you opt to buy a baby carrier. Which one is the most comfortable? Should I try babywearing? What brands are the best? You read and read.
You look for a diaper bag. Am I going to carry bottles? How many pockets does it have? Does it have extra cooling space? Can I wash it? Do I like the straps? How many diapers will it fit? How much clothing can I pack?
You look at diapers. You have a friend that uses cloth, maybe you look into it and reach out to her. What about disposables? Which is cheapest? What brand is best? Which ones won’t give my baby a rash? What about rash cream? I need some of that too, right? You look into it.
You research some of these things, maybe all of them, maybe more… because this is YOUR baby. You care for them. The minute they hit your chest, your whole world is different. You have a fierce love for this tiny human. You will do anything for them; then the nurse comes at them with a needle. They cry. You cry. Did you ever look into it? Did you ever look at newborn interventions? You had a birth plan, did you include your baby? If so, you did a lot more research. You looked at cord clamping, skin-to-skin, and indications for “eye goop.” You looked up newborn vaccinations.
The hospital or staff told you it was routine. They told you it was mandatory, and they had to have them, but is this YOUR child or does this new baby belong to the hospital? Does this baby belong to the pediatrician? Do they belong to the government? How about your state? Do you think this baby belongs to the CDC? After all, they are the ones who proposed the vaccination schedule. The CDC and ACIP (Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices) are the ones that recommend the vaccines. Do they own your child? No? Then why are they making decisions for your child?
You should look up the schedule. You should research the diseases, their history, and their treatment. You should research the vaccines. You have the ability at your fingertips. You are the parent. This is your responsibility. You did it for everything else, so why is this someone else’s territory? These substances go into your newborn’s body. This developing infant gets these biologics… you should know what they are. This is your baby. This is your responsibility. If you want to pass that responsibility off to another person, go for it. That is your choice. Nothing about that is “normal.” Passing off parental responsibility should not be seen as the norm. What should be seen as the norm is parents making informed decisions and having open discussions with healthcare professionals. That should be normal.
Remember, most doctors are not scientists. They don’t usually know the intricacies of vaccine manufacturing, “screening,” testing, approval, courts, payouts, and events reporting. Pediatricians follow protocols mandated upon them by entities that don’t go to med school. Even medical journals are becoming drug advertisements (see video). The art of medicine has been drained by corporate interests, demands of insurance companies, and government protocols. Doctors have been shackled to mandates from people who haven’t been to med school. Providers worry more about litigation than medicine. They cannot deviate, for they will be questioned. Even if it is in the best interest of the patient, they are forced to do otherwise. There is no money in wellness. Think about that. It is no secret that we have the sickest developed nation, and our children are now subject to our poor health habits. Something isn’t working, and we all know governments destroy just about everything. They destroy our money, relationships with other countries, relations within our society with the help of mainstream media, personal rights (there is no shortage of that). So, back to those rights…
Right to body autonomy means that you have ownership of your body. It is your own and you control it. This also goes for your children. They own their body and have the right to their body. You make decisions for them, until they have the mental capacity to do so for themselves. If you didn’t have body autonomy, you could be taken from your home for no reason, imprisoned, tested upon. Somebody could break your bones, stab you, beat you and you’d have no recourse. If you don’t own your body, who does? Right to bodily autonomy is the foundation of liberty.
How is it that in today’s America, in what’s supposed to be a “freed” country, parents are pushed around by health care professionals and government bodies to inject biologics into their children? How is that possible? This is not individual liberty. This is a medical mandate reminiscent of Hitler’s Nazi Medical Experiments.
It is time to rise, parents. You are raising future America. Is it going to be a place where adults don’t believe they have a right to their body? Will it be a place where the government decides who gets what medical interventions? What happens when millions are maimed and killed by said interventions? Without the right to body autonomy, you won’t have a choice, and they won’t have a consequence. Sounds like the predicament we already face with our infants.
Children are the responsibility of their parents, let’s not diminish that role. Parents need to arm themselves with knowledge. Read like you did when preparing for a newborn and baby-proofing your home. We must empower ourselves and each other with the strong message of being responsible for our children (and self) and becoming more educated. There is always more to learn.
Shalom, light, and love.
