Informed Consent Ireland Coalition started this petition to Minister for Health Simon Harris TD


As local constituents, we wish to express our deep misgivings at the announcement that our local TD has written to the Attorney General with a view to paving the way for mandating vaccines in Ireland, in order for children to access creches and schools. This is not a pro- or anti-vaccination issue; it is about preserving the fundamental human right to medical freedom.

We have numerous concerns about this grave overreach of public healthcare:

1.     Bodily integrity and the right to choose. No ‘greater good’ argument supersedes the integrity of this principle. It is shocking to us Mr Harris that you would espouse medical coercion as a means to increase vaccine uptake rates, especially given your own pro-choice stance. This is not an a la carte principle.

2.     Vaccine safety. To pose a threat of forced medical intervention is especially reckless given the current climate for vaccine-safety. The ever-increasing vaccine schedule (34 doses of 15 vaccines in the first 13 months of life) has never been tested synergistically for safety, and all safety trials are short-term, non-blind, non-inert-placebo tested, non-randomised. Carcinogenic, mutagenic or fertility effects have never been tested for (the latter is categorised as unethical despite the routine vaccination of women in pregnancy). We believe your move to mandate in such an environment calls into question your concern for public health over commitment to industry, and that you must be answerable on the above concerns.

3.     Medical objection and lack of recognition of and provision for families affected by vaccine-injury. There is no ‘one size fits all’ system of medicine, and risks, however small, must be recognised. That is the basis for informed consent, enshrined in human rights’ law. The evidence increasingly shows that there is a subset of children with genetic disposition to harm from vaccines – among our group are families of such vulnerable children. Continued denial at public health level of their existence is unethical, misled and harmful.

4.     Philosophical, ethical or religious objection. For differing reasons, some do not wish for their children to be injected with substances cultured on human diploid cells from an aborted foetus – in the case of rubella vaccine, which contains DNA fragments from this source. No vaccine has ever been tested for mutagenic effects.

5.     The shortfall of ‘herd immunity’ theory. Blaming measles outbreaks on unvaccinated children is over simplistic and non-evidence-based. Unlike natural immunity, vaccine immunity is known to wane, leaving adults re-exposed (secondary failure). Added to this, in up to 10% of cases, vaccines fail to provoke an immune response (primary failure). 
We also note that measles outbreaks, which occur in the vaccinated as well as the unvaccinated, can be caused from MMR vaccination. Of the 194 measles virus sequences obtained in the US in 2015, 73 were identified as vaccine sequences.[1]
We also note that to date in 2019 in Ireland, per HSE stats, there are 25 confirmed cases of measles. This time in 2018, there were 47. We are at a loss to understand why almost half the number of measles cases this year compared to last year has led to your declaration of increased risk to children, when this is patently not the case.

We would like your immediate assurance that your ad hoc move to mandate medical interventions for our children – which we view as a smokescreen to hide the very real, substantial and life-endangering crises plaguing our unfit healthcare system – will never come to pass. Your stance on mandating medical interventions will directly impact our voting decisions into the future.

Yours sincerely

The undersigned
