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.

A tremendous California victory for publicly honoring Creator God

Saturday, June 8, 2019, 9:41 am | Randy Thomasson

The biggest pro-family victories in California so far this month are the successful campaigns to put “In God We Trust” on police vehicles in Kern County, just north of Los Angeles County.

Enjoy these photos from my two-day tour to battle alongside these three pastors who spearheaded their city campaigns and won great victories. I highly commend them for being outstanding examples of “standing your ground and not backing down.”

Godly pastors: Justin Medlock of Shafter, David Vivas of Delano, Angelo Frazier of Bakersfield, and myself, on June 4, after we testified to the Shafter City Council.

Bakersfield’s ‘In God We Trust’ leader: Pastor Angelo Frazier, doing a TV interview, on May 22, the day he proposed adding our national motto to police and fire vehicles.  

Encouraging Christians to put their light on a stand: Here’s Pastor Angelo Frazier with a Christian man prior to the June 5 Bakersfield City Council meeting. He encouraged this man to speak, which he eventually did in front of the council, audience, and media.

Public perseverance: Both Christians and atheists at the June 5 Bakersfield City Council meeting. You can see Pastor Frazier and me in the first row. After 2 hours of testimony, the council voted 4 to 2 (Republicans for, Democrats against) to place “In God We Trust” on police and fire vehicles. The news quickly spread nationwide.

Even liberal media get to see ‘In God We Trust’: Bakersfield TV news people were waiting to interview Pastor Frazier after our great moral victory inside City Hall.

Basking in victory: Caring enough to show up for this winnable battle, these Bakersfield Christians celebrate with Pastor Frazier, along with me and Pastor Medlock from Shafter.

Glorying God in Shafter, California: On June 4, Pastor Justin Medlock testified, sharing how a Christian cop helped him repent from drug use and clean up his life with the help of Jesus Christ’s Holy Spirit. He knows that “In God We Trust” on police cars will do good!

Christians are coming out of the closet: Here’s Pastor Medlock with two brothers who own a design and print shop, who’ve offered to pay for the “In God We Trust” decals in both Delano and Shafter, overcoming an atheist objection of taxpayer expense.

He started it all: Pastor David Vivas used his influence with his city’s mayor to propose that Delano be the first California city to place “In God We Trust” on police vehicles. Like the spark of the American Revolution, Pastor Vivas’ bold action on April 2 was a “shot heard round the world.” Pastor Vivas says his Christianity compels him to publicly shine his light. 

Christian values benefit everybody: On June 5, I had the privilege of meeting with Pastor Vivas and Delano Mayor Joe Aguirre, a very strong advocate of “In God We Trust.”

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.
Nor do they slight a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand,
and it gives light to all who are in the house.”

Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world, in Matthew 5:14-15


Democrat politicians continue to push pro-abortion student ID cards

Saturday, May 4, 2019, 4:30 pm | Randy Thomasson

May 9, 2019 update: 58 Democrats power AB 624 through State Assembly to mandate an abortionist’s phone number on student ID cards. See our statement and who voted for it

As expected, the Democrat author of AB 624, requiring an abortionist’s phone number on student ID cards, has exempted “nonsectarian” (religious) colleges, universities, and seminaries. This latest amendment by Assemblyman Jesse Gabriel in the Assembly Higher Education Committee follows the Education Committee’s exemption of all private schools, grades 7 through 12.

While these two amendments are a relief to parents of students at church-affiliated schools, realize what’s happening. The pro-abortion Democrat state legislators (and every single Democrat committee member has voted yes for this awful bill) are forcing pro-abortion ads on the student ID cards of millions of children and young adults in California.

AB 624 still forces the advertising of abortion (“student identification cards shall have printed on either side…A sexual or reproductive health hotline”) behind the backs of parents, teachers, and school administrators:

  1. At all California government-run, “public” junior high and high schools
  2. At all California community colleges, CSU campuses, UC campuses, adult schools, technical colleges, and other post-secondary training schools, and all private colleges and universities that are “nonsectarian” (non-religious)

So don’t thank the Democrat author or the other Democrat legislators who support AB 624 for exempting religious students from their radical pro-abortion bill. I fully expect the pro-abortion Democrat state legislators to “add” back religious students in future years.

In the meantime, millions of California girls, ages 12 through young 20’s, will be indoctrinated that, in a crisis pregnancy, they should call an abortionist, who will kill their child and damage their hearts for life. Where’s the adoption hotline? Are the anti-life Democrats against any “unwanted” child living?

Urge your California state legislators to urge “no” on AB 624
