Exemption Letters & Forms...

Birth Exemptions:

For those who are planning a hospital birth but want to evade invasive routine post natal procedures such as a Hep B shot, vitamin K injection, newborn screening, or the application of silver nitrate in the newborn's eyes, a very specific birthing plan must be submitted to the hospital in advance of the birth. Hospital staff must be informed, in advance, of your needs, wants and desires where your baby and birthing experience are concerned. The same applies to midwives.

ARIZONA NEWBORN SCREENING PROGRAM GUIDELINES
(.pdf) http://www.azdhs. gov/phs/owch/ pdf/az_nbs_ scrn_guide_ 2003.pdf
3.9 Parental Refusal of Consent
The newborn screening tests are automatically ordered for all infants and performed prior to discharge from the hospital, or immediate care of the practitioner attending the birth, unless consent for the test is specifically refused. Parents/guardians may refuse consent for the newborn screening test for their infant after they have received information about the screening program and acknowledged that they understand the potential risks of refusal. Parental refusal of the newborn screening test must be clearly and prominently documented in the infant’s medical record or birth record. The specimen collection kit documenting the refusal shall be submitted with a completed form to the newborn screening laboratory no later than 24 hours or the next working day after the form is completed.

AFFIDAVIT

I/We, ____________ _________ ____, Sui Juris, Free, Natural Flesh and Blood Human Being(s), state Citizen(s) of the Arizona Republic affirm: Be it known to all courts, governments, and other parties that:

Being (a person/people) of Strong Christian Morals, it is against (my/our) Deep, Sincerely Held, Religious Convictions to accept the injection of any foreign substance into (my Body/our Bodies) or the Body of (my/our) Child. This includes, but is not limited to, any and all, Vaccinations, Shots, Tests for Diseases, Oral Vaccines, Epidermal Patches and in any other way that Live or Killed Bacterium, Viruses, Pathogens, Germs, or any other Microorganisms, may be introduced into or upon (my/our) newborn's body.

This written statement to exempt (my/our) newborn from any immunizations, newborn screening, and the Vitamin K shot, because (Iwe) hold genuine and sincere personal religious beliefs which are inconsistent with these medical procedures & experimentation. The practice of vaccination and the injection or application of any foreign substance is contrary to (my/our) conscientiously held religious beliefs and practices, and violates the free exercise of (my/our) religious principles.

The Hepatitis-B vaccine supposedly protects against a disease that is only transmitted through multiple sexual partners or street IV drug users and therefore usurps (my/our) parental authority to condemn such activity in (my/our) child. The acceptance of this vaccine promotes sexual promiscuity and immoral behavior in direct contradiction to the teachings of (my/our) faith.

The prescribing information on Vitamin K shot states that fatalities are an adverse reaction according to the Merck pharmaceutical package insert.
http://www.fda. gov/medwatch/ SAFETY/2003/ 03Feb_PI/ AquaMEPHYTON_ PI.pdf

"WARNING - INTRAVENOUS USE Severe reactions, including fatalities, have occurred during and immediately after the parenteral administration of AquaMEPHYTON® (Phytonadione) ."
A conflict arises because (my/our) religious convictions are predicated on the belief that all life is sacred. God's commandment "Thou Shall Not Kill" applies to the practice of injection of carcinogenic substances that can kill.

(We / I) {First and Last name(s)}, as the {(parent (s) / guardian(s)} of ____________ _________ _(name of newborn child) are exercising (our/my) rights under the First Amendment of the US Constitution and [insert Arizona immunization/ testing exemptions birth statutes here] to receive Religious Exemption from Vaccination, ALL injections, & testing.

Applicable law has been interpreted to mean that a religious belief is subject to protection even though no religious group espouses such beliefs or the fact that the religious group to which the individual professes to belong may not advocate or require such belief. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as amended Nov. 1, 1980; Part 1605.1-Guidelines on Discrimination Because of Religion.

Our legal rights are guaranteed by the free exercise clause of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Recent court decisions have upheld the rights of individuals seeking exemptions from immunizations based upon personal and religious reasons. On the U.S. Supreme Court level in Frazee V. Illinois Dept. of Security, 489 U.S. 829, it was found that a state may not deny an exemption simply because a person is not a member of a formal religious organization.

The Lord Jesus Christ and Our Creator are the only source of protection of (my body/our bodies) and that of (my/our) family that (I/we) can accept.

(I/We) affirm that vaccination & injections of any foreign substances and proteins conflict with (my/our) religious beliefs as stated above. Therefore, (I/we) would request that you accommodate (my/our) religious beliefs and practices by exempting (my/our) newborn child from any vaccinations, injections and testing of any kind.

Rest assured that (my family and I/our family) do practice a form of immunization that keeps our immune systems strong and is in keeping with Biblical principles.

"The provisions of this Act shall not apply if the individual furnishes to the college or university written proof from a church or denomination official that such immunization conflicts with the religious tenets and practices of such recognized church or religious denomination of which said individual is an adherent or member." "To claim a religious exemption, students must demonstrate that the "religious tenets and practices" on which they base their objections to immunization are those of a "recognized" religion."

Often you will be requested to state your rationale for your vaccination exemption petition. What follows is what is used for public schools, parochial schools, private colleges, and public universities.

Q: What constitutes a religious conflict with vaccination?

A: All vaccines are made in violation of God’s Word. Vaccines are made with toxic chemicals that are injected into the bloodstream by vaccination. All vaccines are made with foreign proteins (viruses and bacteria), and some vaccines are made with genetically engineered viral and bacterial materials.

A conflict arises if you believe that man is made in God’s image and the injection of toxic chemicals and foreign proteins into the bloodstream is a violation of God’s directive to keep the body/temple holy and free from impurities.

Vaccines are produced in animal tissues. A conflict arises if you accept God’s warning not to mix the blood of man with the blood of animals. Some vaccines are produced in aborted fetal tissue.

A conflict arises if your religious convictions are predicated on the belief that all life is sacred. God’s commandment "Thou Shall Not Kill" applies to the practice of abortion. When it is believed that the practice of abortion should not be encouraged or supported in any manner, a conflict may arise with vaccines produced in aborted fetal tissue even though you didn’t have anything to do with the abortions from which the vaccines are made from.

The Hepatitis-A vaccine containing MRC-5 is obtained from human babies that were electively aborted. WI-38 was created from the tissue of an aborted fetus and is used for the rubella portion of the MMR-II vaccine. RA 273 was created from the tissue of an aborted fetus, and is used for MMR-II vaccine. A conflict arises because my religious convictions are predicated on the belief that all life is sacred. God’s commandment "Thou Shall Not Kill" applies to the practice of abortion. The acceptance of this/these vaccine(s) promotes/promote abortion and violates the Sixth Commandment of "Thou Shall Not Kill".

The Chickenpox (Varivax) vaccine containing MRC-5 and RA 273, is obtained from human babies that were electively aborted. The acceptance of this vaccine promotes abortion and violates the Sixth Commandment of "Thou Shall Not Kill".

The Hepatitis-B vaccine protects against a disease that is only transmitted through multiple sexual partners or street IV drug users. The acceptance of this vaccine promotes sexual promiscuity and immoral behavior in direct contradiction to the teachings of my faith.

For a child under age 18, where parent has to make the statement, concerning Hep B vaccine...
The Hepatitis-B vaccine protects against a disease that is only transmitted through multiple sexual partners or street IV drug users and therefore usurps my parental authority to condemn such activity in my child. The acceptance of this vaccine promotes sexual promiscuity and immoral behavior in direct contradiction to the teachings of our faith.

"I believe that inherent in each individual is an innate intelligence, provided by God, which will protect the host environment and provide homeostasis. " "Life and physical health are precious gifts entrusted to us by God. We must take reasonable care of them…" [2288 – Catechism of the Catholic Church 1994]

"The virtue of temperance disposes us to avoid every kind of excess: the abuse of ... medicine." [2290 – Catechism of the Catholic Church 1994]

"(Indicate rationale and attach statement from clergy or other authority.)"
You do not need to belong to a church or religious organization to claim religious exemption from vaccines.

Applicable law has been interpreted to mean that a religious belief is subject to protection even though no religious group espouses such beliefs or the fact that the religious group to which the individual professes to belong may not advocate or require such belief.

I affirm that vaccination & injections of foreign proteins conflict with my religious belief as stated above. Therefore, I would request that you accommodate my religious beliefs and practices by exempting me from the college vaccination and/or TB testing requirement.

Rest assured that I do practice a form of immunization that keeps my immune system strong and is in keeping with Biblical principles.

Chemtrails cause DNA mutations in sperm - john hopkins

Chemtrails cause DNA mutations in sperm- john hopkins


Scientists at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, have discovered that air pollution can cause DNA mutations in sperm.

London, January 15 : Scientists at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, have discovered that air pollution can cause DNA mutations in sperm.

The findings are based on a study of mice bred in Hamilton Harbour, an industrial city in Canada. They add to ongoing concerns about the effects of air pollution on human health and fertility.

The researchers found that the mice, reared in cages kept in a shed downwind of two steel mills and a busy highway, had suffered a number of genetic changes as compared to similarly housed mice breathing filtered air.

They have revealed that DNA in the sperm of the mice in the polluted area contained 60 per cent more mutations, had more strand breaks, and had more bases that had been chemically modified through the addition of a methyl group.

The researchers say that such changes may alter gene expression and function in offspring of these mice, though they have yet not directly tested it.

"It's important to move this forward to the next step: determining whether there are any human corollaries to this," Nature magazine quoted Jonathan Samet, an epidemiologist at the Bloomberg School of Public Health, as saying.

In recent years, air pollution has been linked to respiratory and cardiovascular difficulties, developmental defects and lung cancer in humans. However, scientists' focus on the effect of pollution on sperm has been very scant.

"There has been work on the reproductive effects of pollution, but that has largely focused on outcomes of pregnancy, not on male effects," says Samet.

In some previous studies, it had been observed that the offspring of wild birds that bred near steel mills inherited more DNA mutations than their rural counterparts.

A possible reason for such mutations came to the fore when studies on mice were conducted at a later stage.

In the latest study, Carole Yauk of Health Canada in Ottawa and her colleagues monitored male mice for direct evidence of DNA damage in their sperm.

The researchers found that the experimental group started to show more signs of DNA breakage than control mice breathing filtered air, after three weeks of breathing the Hamilton air.

The DNA in the experimental group was significantly more methylated than controls at 10 weeks, while 16 weeks after the experiment began, their DNA contained more mutations at a specific site than the controls.

The researchers have yet to determine how the pollution caused the DNA damage.

"It's quite a leap to go from a lungful of air to damaging germ cells in the testes of these mice," says Christopher Somers, a biologist at the University of Regina in Saskatchewan and an author on the study.

The researchers also tested the DNA for signs of direct mutagenesis a class of chemical compounds called polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, which are known to cause mutations and are enriched in the Hamilton air.

However, they did not find any signs suggesting that these compounds were responsible for the damage.



Malicious traders in the UK try to topple the Halifax bank

HBOS: Malicious traders in the City try to topple the Halifax bank - Times Online


Stock market manipulators yesterday tried to bring down one of Britain’s biggest banks by spreading false rumours through the City.

The Bank of England was forced to issue an unprecedented denial that HBOS was in trouble.

The Financial Services Authority (FSA) said that it would pursue traders guilty of “market abuse” by spreading untrue claims that banks were on the brink of collapse.

The authorities believe that the fear and uncertainty in financial markets are allowing unscrupulous traders to make multimillion-pound profits by whipping up hysteria about the stability of big banks.

Yesterday’s drama began at about 8.30am when rumours started spreading through London’s stock market that HBOS, which owns Halifax, the UK’s biggest mortgage lender, and Bank of Scotland, was about to become another Northern Rock and that it had begged the Bank of England for a multi-billion-pound emergency loan. Within 20 minutes HBOS’s shares had plunged by more than 17 per cent as investors dumped their stakes. An hour later, the Bank of England announced that no bank needed emergency funding, while the FSA issued a statement warning investors to stop spreading false accusations.

It is feared that short-sellers — investors who use falling share prices to make money — were deliberately spooking the market in order to profit from plunging stocks in a practice called trash ’n’ cash.

Rumours that the American investment bank Bear Stearns was short of cash contributed to its near-collapse last week after its lenders were scared into demanding that it repay them immediately.

The warning to speculators came as it emerged that the American financial watchdog was investigating similar activity in the trading of shares of Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers, another US investment bank heavily exposed to risky American mortgage business.

Andy Hornby, the HBOS chief executive, vehemently denied that the bank needed an emergency loan. He said: “It’s categorically untrue that we’ve approached any central bank for funding.”

Sally Dewar, the FSA’s managing director of wholesale markets, said that a series of “completely unfounded rumours about UK financial institutions in the London market” had been spread over the past few days, usually accompanied by short-selling of the banks’ stocks.

The FSA can listen to office telephone calls and investigate suspicious transactions but has never brought a trash ’n’ cash prosecution.HBOS shares closed 7 per cent down at 446.25p.

24/7 Wall St.: Iomai and Pandemic Avian Flu Vaccine (IOMI)

24/7 Wall St.: Iomai and Pandemic Avian Flu Vaccine (IOMI)

Iomai and Pandemic Avian Flu Vaccine (IOMI)

Iomai Corp. (Nasdaq: IOMI) is one of the interesting microcap stocks in the biotech sector with a government twist to its avian flu program. The company has announced positive interim results from a 500-subject Phase 1/2 trial of its patch used with an injected vaccine for H5N1 influenza (bird flu). The trial demonstrated a clinically relevant adjuvant effect when the Iomai patch was used with a single dose of the 45-microgram H5N1 vaccine. The trial found that a single 45-microgram dose of an H5N1 influenza vaccine, coupled with a single 50-microgram Iomai patch, was sufficient to provide an immune response considered protective in 73% of those tested. This is deemed a statistically significant improvement over those who received the H5N1 influenza vaccine alone.

Iomai has also noted that this is one of the first trials to demonstrate that a single dose of pandemic influenza vaccine may meet the level of protection suggested in FDA guidance, which recommends that a pandemic vaccine achieve immune response levels considered protective in 70% or more of vaccine recipients. No treatment-related serious adverse events were reported.

This trial was conducted under a $14.5 million contract with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) with the potential for an additional $114 million in follow-on funding. Iomai has shared the data with HHS and is now working with them to determine the next steps.
