You’ve probably heard of Dr. Richard Pan: He’s the Californian senator who drafted up the controversial vaccinebill, SB-277, which stripped millions of Californian citizens of their parental rights. Pan also introduced another bill, SB-18, which would take the medical tyranny in California one step further by giving the government the right to seize children from their parents, if their families are making medical decisions the state decides are “not in the child’s best interests.”
Pan is without question a supporter of mandatory vaccination: SB 277 clearly proves that — given that the bill eliminated personal and religious freedoms via the removal of these exemptions for vaccinations. The only exemption that remains in place for Californian children and parents facing the decision whether or not to comply with the ever-increasing vaccination requirements is a medical exemption — all thanks to Pan.
In the 2010 election cycle, Richard Pan was one of several Californian senators who is on the record for receiving campaign donations from Merck — a pharmaceutical company that’s famous for creating vaccines. Pan has also advocated for legislation that would have allowed for children as young as 12 to receive the highly detested Gardasil vaccine for HPV without parental consent.
In the past, Pan has reportedly made light of concerns about vaccine ingredients. In one instance, he is quoted as saying, “There’s nothing that’s 100% safe. In fact, actually, people talk about what are in vaccines. Right? They say, “Oh, I’m worried about formaldehyde. I’m worried about aluminum. Um. Thimerosal is not in childhood vaccines. People say they’re worried about thimerosal.” This, of course, is a farce: thimerosal is still used in vaccines, even if its not a preservative. It’s also still used in flu shots.
Recently, Pan joined the so-called “March for Science,” which took place in Washington D.C. and other cities across the country this past spring. Pan stated, “This is a march that is telling not only the administration, but the people of America, that we are in a dangerous place. When we make laws or policies that are disconnected from the facts, that is the route to disaster.”
And yet, Pan and his pro-vaccine cohorts are the ones who dismiss the facts on vaccines: thousands of people have been harmed by vaccines — not just through their everyday use, but through unethical experimentation on humans in poor countries. The evidence of harm caused by vaccines is overwhelming, but has sadly been drowned out by the media’s cries for more injections and less personal freedom.
