(NaturalNews) Like the infamous brownshirts who marched lockstep in obedience to their beloved dictator, nearly every major mainstream media outlet today is simultaneously and savagely ripping at those who choose not to vaccinate, calling for free-thinking parents to be jailed, have their children taken from them, and be forcibly injected with whatever vaccines the state deems necessary.
But this unified affront to medical freedom has one common and baleful theme that needs to be recognized by all, regardless of your personal views on vaccines -- the corporate media machine is actively encouraging the medical community to abandon all established medical ethics and literally force potentially life-threatening medical treatments on people without their informed consent.
The American Medical Association (AMA) in its Code of Medical Ethics clearly outlines how physicians and caretakers are to treat their patients, and it looks nothing like the rancorous abuse by doctors that's taking place in the U.S. today. Patients are to make their own decisions about medical treatments, according to the AMA, with doctors merely providing unbiased information as appropriate.
The "Informed Consent" section of the AMA's Code of Ethics says the following about how medical treatments are to be administered:
The patient should make his or her own determination about treatment. ... Informed consent is a basic policy in both ethics and law that physicians must honor, unless the patient is unconscious or otherwise incapable of consenting and harm from failure to treat is imminent.
One major thing worth noting here is that informed consent is a basic policy in both ethics and law that physicians must honor, meaning it's not optional. An honorable physician abiding by this standard ethics code will not badger or berate a mother who has questions about vaccine safety, for instance. His responsibility is to help patients make the best medical choice possible from all available options, or as the AMA puts it:
The physician has an ethical obligation to help the patient make choices from among the therapeutic alternatives consistent with good medical practice.
You can read the full "Informed Consent" section from the AMA's Code of Medical Ethics here:
So when so-called doctors like Los Angeles-based pediatrician Charles Goodman announce to the world that they won't treat children whose parents choose not to vaccinate them, they're also telling parents everywhere that they don't care a lick about medical ethics. If you don't agree with whatever their god complex tells them is the appropriate treatment for you or your children, you can hit the road.
The more extreme fringe of pro-vaccine zealotry wants to take things a step further, holding parents of unvaccinated children criminally liable when children who were vaccinated develop an infectious disease (most likely from the vaccine itself, or from other vaccinated children) and blaming the "anti-vaccine movement." Whether or not the cause of infection can be proven is irrelevant -- the stage is already being set to blame the spread of all infectious diseases on the unvaccinated.
Besides the inherent dishonesty in this overt propaganda campaign, it belies virtually all foundational elements of civilized, ethical medicine. What the mainstream media is doing with this outrageous campaign against free medical choice is encouraging the medical community to abandon all ethics in favor of forced medical fascism.
"Mandatory vaccination policies are a violation of medical ethics and human rights," explains the book Vaccine Epidemic: How Corporate Greed, Biased Science, and Coercive Government Threaten Our Human Rights, Our Health, and Our Children. "Mandatory vaccination policies violate fundamental moral principles, and they have a profound and deleterious effect on medical practice and the relationship between patient and physician."
