Here is the last appeal sent to MEP the day of voting in parliament, the 19th of April 2018. 



Today, the 19th of April 2018, you are going to make a decision about strengthening vaccine politics, which in reality will open up for mandatory vaccination in all of Europe.

The fundamental human rights define what it means to be a human. The right to life, freedom and equality of the law and the right to make decisions about your own body undoubtedly belongs to the primary human rights.
It should be self evident that the right to decide on our own body constitutes a fundamental part of human dignity. The right to decide on one’s own body constitutes a prerequisite for human rights to be absolute and universal. This can not be deprived of man without violating his fundamental human dignity.

Therefore, a proposal for mandatory vaccination concerns fundamental questions, both in terms of democracy and human rights.

The fundamental principle of democracy is freedom. Freedom means the right of man to decide upon himself.

The principle of responsibility is deeply rooted in the nature of democracy and freedom. We risk a guardianship state, where some know better than others what suits the individual. The danger is that we here slide imperceptibly into the authoritarian.

If the state will be given authority to take decisions regarding each individual’s own body or the health of their children, whose responsibility is traditionally with the parents, will this implies a threat to democratic principle of responsibility and hence its core value.

By tightening legislation in relation to vaccination, at the same time, human rights and the very foundations of democracy have been set aside.
The self-determination of own body gives freedom a concrete content together with freedom of expression, assembly and association, and freedom of thought, conscience and religion. It’s not just an ideal or empty term – but fundamental rights.

The right to make decisions about one’s own body has not only a physical dimension but also an existential. The declaration of human rights also emphasizes the right to protect its privacy and its private interests. This right is already established in the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which states in Article 12 that “no one must be subjected to arbitrary interference in privacy”. The right to own body is an important part of the private interests.

Hereto comes the right to protect oneself against unwanted side effects of drugs. This right is a fundamental part of the right to take care of your own health. If there is a medical doubt about the possible side effects of a particular drug, the patient should be able to deny receiving this drug.

We have to ask ourselves: What are the side effects of vaccines? What are the risks? The United States Supreme Court ruled in 2011 that vaccines are “unavoidably unsafe”. This is also reflected  in the compensation payments we see worldwide or in manufacturers’ fact sheet. In addition, vaccines are different from most other drugs because once you have got it, it is impossible to withdraw.In addition to the above-mentioned human rights issues, politicians will also have to ask the following important questions: “Are we able to take the responsibility for the potential side effects of the vaccines?”
The more serious these are, the more the politicians should limit the scope of their decisions. The responsibility will be changed crucially with the decision for mandatory vaccination. Politicians will take upon themselves an huge responsibility and are committed to ensure that the highest scientific principles are followed by the vaccine industries and by the health authorities. They also accept the responsibility for securing full transparency concerning vaccines at all levels.
The epidemic situation does not exist as health authorities and politicians claim, ref. our document; “Understanding the Principles and Limits of Measles Vaccines Could Save More Lives
However, this claim is used as the reason to override constitutional rights. In reality, we are not facing any medical crisis or any life threatening situation that we cannot handle. Therefore it is impossible to justify the introduction of mandatory laws.All member countries of WHO have legislation’s that allow the use of mandatory vaccinations and other forced measures to deal with an acute epidemically difficult situation. It is therefore not possible to justify the violation of human rights and fundamental constitutional laws on a permanent basis with referring to separate outbreaks happened in a period of a single year.MEP’s have in this case a very difficult and challenging task. They are under pressure from the pharmaceutical industry and health authorities. Most of the information about vaccines is produced or influenced by the pharmaceutical industry that often present incomplete and bias information. The immune system is very complex and still poorly understood with many scientifically unanswered questions. People today are more aware of the influence of the pharmaceutical industry on governmental decisions, therefore transparency is of most importance. This is especially true in the question of vaccines and drugs in general. 

We want to end this appeal with a quote from an report made in 2010 about the H1N1 pandemic:  

“In the same way that confidence needs to be rebuilt in public health action, it is necessary to consolidate trust in science and medicine by all possible means, including the involvement of a broad range of scientific expertise. The case of the H1N1 pandemic also raises challenging questions about the system by which drugs are evaluated, regulated and promoted. When vast quantities of public money and large amounts of public trust are placed in drugs, the full data must be accessible for scrutiny by the scientific community 41. “  

The handling of the H1N1 pandemic: more transparency needed”.

You have to consider the major consequences of overruling fundamental human rights before You make your decision.  You have a responsibility in relation to the population that has chosen You as an representant, and in relation to your country’s constitution.

It is important to be aware that there are many leading vaccine supporters and experts who strongly oppose to the introduction of mandatory laws.
If You vote for implementing mandatory vaccination You will be responsible for breaking many laws, conventions and declarations which European countries are committed to follow:

1.  The Universal  will be Rights of the UN (Art. 26) (made in Paris, 1948)
2.  The Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union
3.  The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (Art. 3 & 24)
4.  The European Convention on Human Rights and Biomedicine (1997)
5.  The European Charter on the Rights of the Sick
6.  The UN International Covenant on Civil & Political Rights
7.  The Nuremberg Code (“The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.”)
8.  The Basic right of Informed Consent

The ten points of the Nuremberg Code:

  1. Required is the voluntary, well-informed, understanding consent of the human subject in a full legal capacity.

  2. The experiment should aim at positive results for society that cannot be procured in some other way.

  3. It should be based on previous knowledge (e.g., an expectation derived from animal experiments) that justifies the experiment.

  4. The experiment should be set up in a way that avoids unnecessary physical and mental suffering and injuries.

  5. It should not be conducted when there is any reason to believe that it implies a risk of death or disabling injury.

  6. The risks of the experiment should be in proportion to (that is, not exceed) the expected humanitarian benefits.

  7. Preparations and facilities must be provided that adequately protect the subjects against the experiment’s risks.

  8. The staff who conduct or take part in the experiment must be fully trained and scientifically qualified.

  9. The human subjects must be free to immediately quit the experiment at any point when they feel physically or mentally unable to go on.

  10. Likewise, the medical staff must stop the experiment at any point when they observe that continuation would be dangerous.

        Yours Sincerely,
