Is Governor Gavin Newsom pro-family on vaccines?

Saturday, June 15, 2019, 8:43 am | Randy Thomasson

Could one of the worst anti-family bills in the California State Legislature this year be stopped because uber-liberal Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom dislikes it?

SB 276 would eliminate a pediatrician’s right to provide vaccination exemptions for children at risk. This is despite evidence of family health weaknesses, vaccine-damaged siblings, and parents’ medical concerns. Instead, the State would decide.

Yet, when quizzed about this bad bill at the Democrats’ state convention on June 1, Newsom surprised liberal reporters. Here’s an excerpt from the Sacramento Bee report:

“I’m a parent. I don’t want someone that the governor of California appointed to make a decision for my family,” he told reporters after his speech at the California Democratic Party Convention.

Although Newsom said he strongly supports the bill Brown signed in 2015, he said he’s concerned about handing those decisions over to a government appointee, not a doctor.

“I believe in immunizations… however I do legitimately have concerns about a bureaucrat making a decision that is very personal,” Newsom said. “That’s just something we need to pause and think about.”

What’s going on here? Does Newsom or his wife (California’s self-proclaimed “First Partner”) know any vaccine-damaged children, or have friends with vaccine-damaged children? Or do they know Robert Kennedy, Jr., a California Democrat, who’s a national leader against forced vaccination?

In any case, Newsom’s public comments provide hope for California parents and grandparents who support parental rights and medical freedom. It’s time to unite for what’s right. So whether you’re pro- or anti-vaccine, let’s stand our ground for parental rights, medical freedom, and resistance to tyrannical government by urging Governor Newsom to veto SB 276 if it reaches his desk.

Let’s face it. Children belong to parents, not the State. And parents are responsible for raising their own children — and that includes informed consent for ALL medical care, including being adequately informed about the pros and cons of numerous vaccines routinely injected into babies.

PLEASE TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION

STEP 1. Copy our pre-written message below into the Governor’s web contact form. Once on that web form, select “Have Comment.” Then, under “Please choose your subject,” select “OTHER.” Then paste in the following message (which you can edit, of course):

Please veto SB 276. This bill would eliminate the doctor-patient relationship concerning medical exemptions for childhood vaccinations. This ignores the real-life concerns of parents with children with genetic weaknesses or children who are already vaccine-damaged. Veto SB 276. Don’t permit the State to trump parents and pediatricians by creating a harsh, “one size fits all” vaccination bureaucracy.

STEP 2. Call Governor Gavin Newsom’s constituent services phone line at 916-445-2841 (9am to 5pm, Monday through Friday). When your call is answered, simply read all or part of the above message. (The person answering will also ask for your name and address, which you can always decline to provide.)

Thank you for uniting with SaveCalifornia.com for medical freedom for families!

People bring children into this world and nurture them through long years of dependency. They do this with no hope of immediate gain and every expectation of sleepless nights, financial burdens, and daily vexations … Scholars bent on finding self-serving explanations for behavior will argue that parents produce offspring because the latter are useful as unpaid laborers and future breadwinners. While this no doubt occurs and may explain why some parents feel a duty to their children, it cannot explain why children should feel any obligation to their parents. The youngsters are free-riders who benefit from nurturance whether they later support those who nurtured them or not. Yet children feel and act upon obligations to their parents despite the fact that such actions are unprofitable.

Mandating an abortionist’s phone number on student ID cards?

Wednesday, March 6, 2019, 3:39 pm | Randy Thomasson

APRIL 10 UPDATE: AB 624 mandating an abortionist’s phone number on student ID cards late today PASSED the Democrat-controlled California State Assembly Committee. Religious junior high and high schools HAVE BEEN EXEMPTED via the author’s amendment, but religious colleges, universities, and seminaries HAVE NOT. This bad bill promoting abortion and compelling objectionable speech now goes to the Assembly Higher Education Committee.

There’s a very bad bill — ridiculous, unconstitutional, anti-parent, anti-religion, and deathly — introduced by a very pro-abortion California state legislator who’s received lots of money from Planned Parenthood abortionists.

Democrat Jesse Gabriel of Assembly District 45 in Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley has authored AB 624 to require an abortionist’s phone number on student ID cards at every junior high, high school, and college campus in California, including Christian- and Catholic-format schools and universities.

The bill states that “a public school, including a charter school, or a private school, that serves pupils in any of grades 7 to 12” and “a public or private institution of higher education”…”shall have printed on either side of the student identification cards”…”a sexual or reproductive health hotline.” NOTE: “A sexual or reproductive health hotline” is obvious code for Planned Parenthood abortionists.

Religious schools are in the Democrat politicians’ crosshairs again. Yet AB 624’s blatant violation of religious freedom and free speech (which even liberal politicians remember as “separation of church and state”) isn’t allowed in the USA. Because the 2018 U.S. Supreme Court ruling NIFLA v. Becerra prohibited government from compelling private organizations (pro-life crisis pregnancy centers) to support pro-abortion messages.

But neither the U.S. Constitution nor the decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court matter to Planned Parenthood abortionists or their bought-and-owned politicians (all the Democrats in the California Legislature are pro-abortion and pro-Planned-Parenthood). They want free advertising for new abortion customers as young as 12 years old.

So, AB 624 and its Democrat author have no problem forcing Christian- and Catholic-format junior highs, high schools, and universities to put an abortionist’s phone number on their student ID cards. This way, no parent and no school administrator will know about the killing of pre-born babies and the emotional scarring of teenage girls.

NEW ACTION

1. Leave this message with the 9 Democrats and 3 Republican on the Assembly Higher Education Committee: “Oppose AB 624 which mandates an abortion provider’s phone number on student ID cards, including at faith-based colleges, universities, and seminaries. This bill blatantly violates the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in NIFLA v. Becerra, which said California can’t force private institutions to support abortion messages that they disagree with.”

2. Pray to God in Jesus Christ’s Name that He would send angels to California’s pro-abortion Democrat state legislators (3/4ths of the State Legislature) to bother them to NOT support AB 624.

3. Tell all your friends that Democrat politicians are unfortunately pro-abortion and this tyrannical bill is more evidence of this. Planned Parenthood only endorses pro-abortion Democrats, as shown here and here.

The California Legislature included in its official history the congratulatory statement that the Act was part of California’s legacy of “forward thinking.” App. 38–39. But it is not forward thinking to force individuals to “be an instrument for fostering public adherence to an ideological point of view [they] fin[d] unacceptable.” Wooley v. Maynard, 430 U. S. 705, 715 (1977). It is forward thinking to begin by reading the First Amendment as ratified in 1791; to understand the history of authoritarian government as the Founders then knew it; to confirm that history since then shows how relentless authoritarian regimes are in their attempts to stifle free speech; and to carry those lessons onward as we seek to preserve and teach the necessity of freedom of speech for the generations to come. Governments must not be allowed to force persons to express a message contrary to their deepest convictions. Freedom of speech secures freedom of thought and belief. This law imperils those liberties.

Why every female should oppose transsexuality

Thursday, February 28, 2019, 9:30 am | Randy Thomasson


“Transgender” athletes in school sports are making the news again. And it’s your opportunity to easily explain to people the harm of allowing boys to masquerade as girls.

In the above photograph of the runners, two biological boys (the two black boys on the left) won first and second place in the 55-meter dash earlier this month. These boys, who say they’re transgender and call themselves “girls,” beat all the girls running, turning the biological girls into losers.

It is so unfair to allow boys to compete in athletics against girls. Here’s why“Male athletes have a higher ratio of muscle mass to body weight, which allows for greater speed and acceleration. This explains why female speed records in running and swimming are consistently 10 percent slower than men’s, and why, on average, they have two thirds of the strength of men.”

The transgender lie is so obvious, that tennis star Martina Navratilova, a self-proclaimed “lesbian,” says permitting biological males (both adolescents and adults) to compete in women’s sports is “cheating” and “insane.

“To put the argument at its most basic,” she wrote this weekend in an op-ed for the Sunday Times of London, “a man can decide to be female, take hormones if required by whatever sporting organisation is concerned, win everything in sight and perhaps earn a small fortune, and then reverse his decision and go back to making babies if he so desires.” Source

“It is surely unfair on women who have to compete against people who, biologically, are still men. I am happy to address a transgender woman in whatever form she prefers, but I would not be happy to compete against her.” Navratilova, who became a target for abuse after coming out as gay in 1981, said she deplored the “tyranny” of transgender activists who “denounce anyone who argues against them.” Source

For speaking this biological truth, Navratilova has been kicked off an advisory board for “LGBT” athletes.

Every woman and girl who supports equal opportunity for women or women’s sports should oppose the unnatural transsexual agenda. For when adolescent boys and men pretend to be women, the real women always lose.

Who voted to impose this unfair policy upon all California K-12 public schools?

Signed by Governor Jerry Brown in 2013 after passage by 46 Democrats in the State Assembly and 21 Democrats in the State Senate, AB 1266 requires all K-12 public schools to permit biological boys in girls’ restrooms, showers, clubs, and sports teams; and biological girls in boys’ restrooms, showers, clubs, and sports teams. The “right” to violate these sexual boundaries is solely a self declaration of a different “gender identity.”

Passed by the majority Democrats in the California Legislature, AB 1266 tramples parents’ rights and invades the personal comfort zones of millions of children for a handful of sexually confused children who need professional counseling. Not only is transsexuality unnatural and unhealthy, AB 1266 invites blatant fraud, since there are porn-influenced boys who will try to see girls partially or fully naked by declaring themselves “female” for the day.

AB 1266 mandates this agenda and permits this abuse, reading, “A pupil shall be permitted to participate in sex-segregated school programs and activities, including athletic teams and competitions, and use facilities consistent with his or her gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil’s records.”

“Typically females have two X chromosomes and males have an X and a Y. Mothers always pass an X chromosome on to their children. Whether your father passes on his X chromosome (leading to a pair of X chromosomes) or his Y chromosome (making a mixed set) determines your sex.”
