Re: “Women's March SLO removes Central Coast Health Coalition from event

Vaccine mandates are a direct affront on women’s rights, parental rights, civil rights, equal rights. They are a detriment to the environment and children’s health. They are a win for the corporate patriarchy. Isn’t this what we are marching for?? I just don’t get how these principals don’t align with those of the SLO Women’s March or why they would ask this group not to participate?

Re: “Get off your soapbox!

Actually there is surmountable evidence that clean drinking water, more sanitary conditions, underground plumbing, safer food handling and good old fashioned hand washing significantly contributed to the downfall and spread of polio long before the vaccine was ever given to the masses. And polio was NEVER eradicated. It has simply been renamed several different things. Transverse myelitis, acute flaccid myelitis, Guillain-Barre Syndrome. Perhaps you should read the hundreds of studies and dozens of books written on this very subject.

Re: “Women's March SLO removes Central Coast Health Coalition from event

SLO PD are being used as pawns and are violating the first amendment rights of these women according to the U.S. 9th Circuit Court.

What part of public don’t you understand SLO PD?

Women’s March you overstepped human rights and practiced tyranny. Is that what you stand for?

Re: “Women's March SLO removes Central Coast Health Coalition from event

So many women are suffering physical and/or emotional trauma from the loss of a child or the loss of child's social, emotional, or mental skills, and/or the ability to self-care, because of vaccine injury. These women have lost careers, and the chance to live their hopes and dreams. Their lives have been taken from them. Who supports these women? Where is their voice? Why are they less important than other women?

Re: “Women's March SLO removes Central Coast Health Coalition from event

The Women’s March is marching for full term abortions so that the pharmaceutical industry and Dr Slotkin have Baby organs and parts to chop up for their experiments. One more time, women have been duped to think that the world cares about their issues. The Women’s Marches have been funded to eliminate the voices of women. 20% of the children are adversely effected by vaccines. You don’t know this until it happens to you. You women ostracizing other women should be SO ashamed of yourselves for not listening. The LEAST you can do is listen to the Moms who have experienced the horror of having their children effected by the injection of adjuvants and ground up baby parts.... aluminum, formeldahyde, aborted fetal tissue etc. wake up people. Vaccines also sterilize and cause chronic illness. I got the SV40 Virus and Hodgkins Lymphoma from contaminated polio vaccine. Fun! Not!

Re: “Women's March SLO removes Central Coast Health Coalition from event

Our bodies our choice applies to everyone! The sanctity and sovereignty of our bodies and the Right of Informed Consent are basic human rights that no government or corporate agency should ever be able to take away from anyone for any reason. People informed about the risks associated with vaccines are often basing their concerns on personal experience. In other words, they started out pro-vaccine only to have experienced an adverse reaction personally or in a family member. Some have watched a child or other loved one die because of a vaccine reaction. Others recognize that the "science" does not support the claim that "Vaccines are safe and effective". Our own government classifies vaccines as "Unavoidably Unsafe". In fact, members of the World Health Organization recently admitted on camera that vaccine safety science is lacking! So, before you ignore or try to silence or decide to hate "anti-vaxers"(a slur put forth by Big Pharma) because of what you think they are, do your own research. I'll provide a few links because Google, Facebook, Amazon, etc. have censored everything but pro-vaccine information (again not backed by real science) - that alone should make you suspicious and eager to learn more ;).;;;;;

Re: “Get off your soapbox!

Melissa is a a rock star and correct. The author clearly hasn't read the hundreds of SCIENTIFIC studies that disagree with her, but hey, sheep are easily led aren't they? Ever wondered why the vaccine manufacturers can't be sued if there is an adverse reaction or death caused by vaccines? Hmm. why not? Read the 1986 Vaccine Injury Act. But you probably didn't know about that did you "shredder". My nephew died at the hands of the TDap vaccine so your insensitive article doesn't address the hundreds, and thousands who have been adversely affected by vaccines. but hey, stay on your ill-informed soap box.

Re: “Get off your soapbox!

This Shredder really got my blood boiling. In the very article where it claims "They already have a freakin' complex about being discriminated against" it denigrates intelligent well educated people who happen to not believe what the writer believes. It uses humor to slyly say what these people are fighting for, the human right of body autonomy and a parent's right to make health choices for their children, sets them apart. It calls these intelligent educated people ignorant. This IS discrimination. One doesn't HAVE a "complex" about being discriminated against when you ARE being discriminated against. That's like telling a person of color to just get over it or a transgendered person restrooms are their problem rather than society's. This writer couldn't have made it more plain than if he or she had called them ignorant negros or filthy Jews.

Re: “Women's March SLO removes Central Coast Health Coalition from event

I dont have children but am unfortunate enough to have friends that have vaccine-injured children and so Ive been reading what I can and learning about the possibilities that maybe we arent given enough information on this subject. Im not an expert but the issues I see are 1. The silencing of parents that are seeing reactions immediately after a vaccine is administered(why arent doctors reporting these cases?) 2. Why is the government deciding that informational stories of parents living with vaccine injured children need to be wiped off the Internet (Amazon, etc no longer even sell movies that have been made about real stories because they were told they shouldnt by government representatives)... Im sorry, Im smart enough to not just want propaganda, I want information from both sides, I am smart enough to be able to discern and educate myself... when I have access to educational material, and I believe real mothers experiences is considered educational. 3. If vaccines are as safe as they claim, why are they protected by government agency in regards to being sued? 4. Why did the world health organization seemed stumped and not have access to a study that showed the cumulative reaction to multiple vaccines given in a short amount of time since THIS seems to be the actual issue so many mothers are struggling with?
I had vaccinations as a child, i am not a so-called anti-vaxxer, I also had a tenth of the vaccinations that are on the schedule today

Re: “Get off your soapbox!

Wow! Personal attacks, sarcasm and name calling! Typical journalism these days when the journalist - wait, you're no journalist - when the reporter has done zero research, regurgitates narrative talking points and always resorts to those tired tactics to generate readership. Talk about "sheeple" (your word not mine). I quit reading the New Times many years ago. Now I remember why.

Re: “Get off your soapbox!

The thing is that most of us moms have gone to college, we got our education, we worked/work in careers, the tired old
excuse that we are just "moms" doesn't work anymore! It was a good one while it lasted! I went to college, I got my Bachelor of Science degree, I studied; o-chem, biochem, anatomy/physiology, public health, environmental health, epidemiology, etc. We are not ignorant, we HAVE done our research. We have learned from our own past experiences or from other mothers/fathers.. and we BELIEVE them. We aren't just going to listen to some bought out mostly male western medicine doctor for what is right for OUR children. We make choices for our children, no one else! What the Women's March did was wrong. Not because we are some crazy lunatics that they gave some publicity to. They were wrong, because they decided that they would use force to discriminate against a small group that no one wants to believe. This is why rape culture exists, this is why women have been marginalized. Because no one wanted to believe a message that was uncomfortable for them. I marched with a Trump guy screaming at all of us, my question is this; was he banned from the "permitted" area? Was he asked to leave? Or is it because he was male? Have we not even gotten very far with all this "marching". What is even the point of any of it, if we can't even open a simple SLO park up for ALL the messages from women. Or was there pressure from somewhere else to not have this message be apart of such a Day of "Free" Speech?

Re: “Women's March SLO removes Central Coast Health Coalition from event

I have supported the Women’s March and encouraged others (including my daughter’s) to do so as well. No more.
I am pro-life, I believe abortion is wrong but more than that I believe in a woman’s right to her body, her medical decisions and care. I’ll do with my body what I feel is right and marched to advocate the same luxury to others. I marched with those around me who were not pro-life but that’s ok- we all agreed with a woman’s right to CHOICE! But this is upsetting to the core- a clear misunderstanding of the rudimentary reason why a woman’s march occurs. I’m shocked quite frankly they would silence some beliefs that did not align with theirs. Whaaat?!? I hope they go back and re-think what exactly they are marching for and expand the very narrow interpretation that met their agenda in this day.
I will not march another march with them and neither will my daughters if I have any influence over them- but ultimately that will be their choice. Because it is about CHOICE.

Re: “Women's March SLO removes Central Coast Health Coalition from event

Vaccine injured children are the most invisible group of discriminated people in the history of disabilities.
I'm so astonished at the push for censorship! Stripping these constitutional freedoms and rights from people is only going to wake more people up. Backfire! Mothers with vaccine injured children-who will forever wholeheartedly protest these mandated products(kids can't go to public school, which taxpayers are funding. How nefarious is that?! Injured children can't attend public school without the mandated pharmaceutical products which harmed them in the first place, btw vaccine makers have no liability for death or injury) We are going to keep sharing all the research, stories, and information that keeps being suppressed. Ever wonder why people who once trusted doctors are now saying, no thanks? This isn't an easy decision for loving parents to come to the conclusion of, for no reason. There is a massive pile of evidence we should all be able to look at and say, "Maybe these aren't safe and effective like they are touted?" Too many conflicts of interest on every level in this industry, and forcing any medical procedure against a free person is coercion with punishment is illegal, aka, racketeering. I thought the civil rights movement ended years ago, apparently not. If we can't have the right to our own bodies, religion and personal freeoms where does one draw the line.
Pharma marketing is based on manufacturing a desire for a disease-free utopia that is unattainable in reality. So long as the utopia is desired but unattainable the totalitarian will be endless and relentless in attempting to achieve his mission. His identity and illusion of serving a greater purpose that gives his life greater meaning by social validation depends on it. The rage cycle has no end within his totalitarian mind that can only think and perceive in "two's" of a barbaric "me vs enemy, us vs them" mindset. Therefore, if you do not make your opponent detach from that manufactured desire for a disease-free utopia, a sense of calm can never be established in the brainwashed individual's mind.

Forcing one-size-fits-all economies, medicines, ideologies, etc. lead to disaster and mass human suffering. The zealous totalitarian's desire to achieve that utopia makes him or her willing to commit the most horrific acts against another person because no measure of ethical or moral boundaries can outweigh his or her imagined greater-good utopia.

Re: “Get off your soapbox!

Under the veil of advocating for civil rights could your comments be any more misogynistic? And yes, people that are discriminated against typically have a complex about it. Good grief, your soap box has a serious case of dry-rot.

Re: “Get off your soapbox!


You made a very bold statement about "our friendly neighborhood group of mothers against vaccinating their children because they apparently don't believe in science...or care about herd health or understand the concept of immunity". It is clear here, that you are entirely missing the point of why these mothers showed up. You see, there is a much more deep and fragile issue surrounding mothers uniting to promote vaccine safety and awareness. It is called tragic loss of our children's health. And LIVES. (Yes, you read that right. Hence, the label ex-vaxxers.) If you feel that these women are making false or anti-science claims about that, you ought to get yourself acquainted with VAERS, the U.S. government reporting system for those who have suffered from Vaccine Adverse Events, which include injury and death (both of which are noted on the package product inserts, by the vaccine manufacturer themselves). The government has paid out over 4 BILLON dollars in injury and DEATH, in this reporting system (which is estimated that only 1% of adverse events are reported, so you can do the math on that). Your attack fell upon women, mothers and families who indeed vaccinated. They felt the pressure, fear and hate, all of which you demonstrated in this article, and did the thing they were "supposed to do", in the name of protecting them and YOU! Now many of us live with shattered lives. Many of our children live with shattered dreams. Many of our children are not with us any longer. We suffer this in the deepest way, on so many levels. We suffer the guilt of giving something to our children that harmed them. We suffer through the pain. But, we persevere through the cruelty, ignorance and carelessness of haters.

We came as women and mothers, not with a message of hate or to tell you not to vaccinate. We personally know there are risks and that not all bodies are the same. We have truth. We came to bring awareness to this FACT. Our theme is to educate before you vaccinate and our fight is to keep our rights to medical and health freedom as mothers, women and humans. Fear, hate and discrimination does not stop a woman. It will not stop a mother! And we will keep fighting, even for people like you.

Re: “Get off your soapbox!

Hey Shredder. I’m one of those moms that was kicked out of the Some Woman’s March in SLO. You say we don’t believe in science? It’s science itself that fuels these moms and going off your commentary alone, I can say you have never looked into this science. One may claim that vaccine injury is rare and for the ‘greater good’... and that’s cute until one day it’s your kid. CDC says ingredients in vaccines can cause damage in my child due to her rare disease that would cause total, unrepairable hearing loss. After following the recommended schedule for far longer then I would like to admit, she is left with one good working ear. Where’s the parade for her? Who helps pay for her hearing aid and insurance? Not the herd. She took one for the team for your supposed herd immunity... and then to be scrutinized, labeled with a slur and pushed aside? And people like you think should keep setting my baby on fire to keep you and the herd warm because you are living in fear of diseases like the fricken chicken pox? Since you have truly jumped into the arena after this one, let me know if you need any help or resources to help you wake the flock up, I would be more then willing to help you with that.

Re: “Get off your soapbox!

Your sarcasm, distain and ignorance for such a sensitive topic is alarming. Verbally attacking mothers who are educated with college, sometimes science degrees , and speaking up for their children who have been injured is despicable. Do you know how many more vaccines children get these days compared to when you were a kid? Children get as many vaccines in their FIRST year of life as you or I got by the time we were 18. The aluminum used as the adjuvant in highly neurotoxic. This has been shown up be a huge problem in countless studies.. and guess where it ends up? The brain. No wonder so many kids have chronic illnesses these days. Educate yourself before making a fool of yourself and attacking people who are trying to stand up for their injured children. Slo is a wonderful place to live, but you sir are spreading hate. Do better.
