The crazy democrats are at it again. The lunatics in DC have voted to allow kids as young as 11-year-old to be able to consent to get recommended vaccines.
The bill passed 12-1 and will need to be passed again by the Council and get the Mayor’s signature but I doubt that will be a difficult task.
If the kid’s doc thinks the kid is capable of meeting the informed consent standard, the kid gets to decide if they want a vaccine.
I can figure out a pretty good way out of this… as a parent, don’t give the kid the name of their doctor. Don’t drive them to the doctor.
But alas, democrats are evil and sneaky, so I’m sure they will set things up for the kids so they can do what they want and are able to talk to a doctor sans-parent.
The lone dissenter with a brain who didn’t vote for the bill, Trayon White Sr., said, “Parents have a fundamental right to direct the upbringing, education and care of their children.”
He went on to say, “Medical professionals and schools should not be permitted to coerce impressionable minors into procedures capable of causing injury or death behind their parents’ back.”
The bill originally was to actually include children of ANY age but was changed to reflect a little more sanity.
But not much.
