ACTION ALERT from John Gilmore
April 17, 2020 — As many of you may know the Patron Saints of my Blog are Rita Palma and John Gilmore – the two most important Health Freedom Activists in New York. Below is an action alert from John Gilmore everyone should respond to. – Fed Up Dem
On Wednesday New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said in his daily briefing, “Anything we can do to work with the federal government to get the (covid-19) vaccine done faster, we are all in. We want to use New York as a laboratory. We are ready, willing, in any way.”
We need to remind Gov. Cuomo New York’s children are not guinea pigs. And even though Cuomo has had the authority since March 3 to suspend any state law he chooses, as long as he asserts that it is necessary to address the covid-19 outbreak (and he will have that power until April of 2021) he cannot suspend federal laws, and he cannot suspend basic morality.
Please get on the phone and start calling the decision makers and politely deliver the message: “No using our kids as guinea pigs. No mandatory covid-19 shots. Not for school. Not for work. Not for anything.”

Perhaps we need to remind the Governor of the Nuremberg Code, the set of ethical guidelines for medical research that emerged following the atrocities committed by medical resarchers in Nazi Germany. The first of the ten points of the Nuremberg code is, “The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.”
On February 4 the federal government declared covid-19 vaccines under development to be “countermeasures,” and extended complete liability protection to producers, health professionals and governments from any injuries that the vaccines may cause. In the haste to get a vaccine to market as quickly as possible the decision has already been made to skip animal testing. Researchers are rushing to produce vaccines in months instead of the usual 5 to 7 years.
Rushing vaccines to market in the past has not gone well. The first round of polio vaccines hurried into production in the 1950s actually caused polio. In 1976 a swine flu vaccine was quickly pulled when it became apparent it was causing paralysis in otherwise healthy people. And the H1N1 flu vaccine rushed to market in 2009 had a wide range of side effects and minimal efficacy. Voices in the vaccine industry are lowering expectations that any of the covid-19 vaccines in development may be as effective as desired, or that rushed testing is wise.

We know that Cuomo is contemptuous of basic human rights and safety as they relate to vaccines. He pushed through legislation last year that repealed the longstanding religious exemption from vaccine mandates to attend school, making New York one of only five states to do so. In August, 2019 he disregarded basic vaccine safety considerations when he issued regulations for medical exemptions from vaccine mandates that no longer protect children from injury, but only from re-injury after a documented vaccine injury has already occurred. Based on his performance to date and his statements, we cannot reasonably expect Cuomo to put the safety of New York’s children, and their right not to be guinea pigs in medical experiments, before rushing a hastily prepared vaccine to market.
Nobody should be compelled to participate in any vaccine trial, and nobody should be compelled to use any vaccine, especially a vaccine developed in haste and that has not undergone the full range of customary safety and efficacy trials. The vaccine industry and governments have already cleared themselves of any responsibility for an injury caused by a covid-19 vaccine, at the very least, use of any resulting product should be used strictly on a voluntary basis.
