HPV Vaccine Bill Passes SC House

BETH BERNSTEIN’S LEGISLATION BACK BY NIKKI HALEY … || By FITSNEWS ||  S.C. Rep. Beth Bernstein‘s bill requiring the S.C.

|| By FITSNEWS ||  S.C. Rep. Beth Bernstein‘s bill requiring the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC) to provide information about the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine to parents of sixth grade girls cleared the S.C. House this week.

“The fact that our state has one of the highest cervical cancer mortality rates in the nation is unacceptable,” Bernstein said.  “By providing parents with information about this very important and safe vaccine, we can help prevent thousands of cancer cases in South Carolina each year.”

By an 83-27 vote, the measure cleared the “Republican-controlled” chamber.  It also has the support of S.C. governor Nikki Haley – who has a tortured history on this issue.

As a state lawmaker, Haley co-sponsored legislation in 2007 requiring every eleven-year-old girl in the Palmetto state to receive a vaccination against HPV.  In fact Haley refused to take her name off of this controversial bill even after nearly two dozen of her colleagues (Republicans and Democrats) pulled their support in light of its failure to include “opt out” language.

On the campaign trail in 2010, Haley flat out lied about her position.

“Through the legislative process, it became clear to me that an opt-out provision was not going to be included in the bill and it sought to mandate that middle-school girls obtain a vaccine – and strip parents of the right to make the choice for their daughter(s),” Haley wrote on her campaign website in 2010. “In light of that turn of events, I voted to kill the bill.”

That statement was totally false, though.  Haley voted at least once on the record to kill an amendment that would have added a parental “opt-out” provision to the bill.  Then there was another “off the record” vote offering up similar “opt-out” language she voted to kill as well.

As governor, Haley flip-flopped completely and vetoed legislation that would have provided free HPV vaccinations – with a parental “opt out” clause.

Now she’s apparently flipping back …

Bernstein said her office worked to negotiate  “a compromise with the Governor that allowed her to support a bill that she has vetoed in the past.”

“Politics killed this bill in the past, but I was determined to not let that happen again,” she said.

Even if it meant Kabuki-dancing with the governor, apparently.

Similar legislation was championed in previous years by former S.C. Rep. Bakari Sellers.  In fact his legislation was the focus of this expansive piece by former FITS columnist Amy Lazenby.

So “we” can pay for a $50 vaccination or “we” can pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in treatment costs for those who get the disease. Plus it is a miserable way to die.

Mom March 19, 2015 at 11:46 am

Hence, another reason against Socialized Medicine. If the aggregate is responsible for my healthcare, then the aggregate gets to tell me what shots to get, tax me for being overweight, not exercising, eating excessive sugar…

Rakkasan March 19, 2015 at 12:31 pm

Not for your healthcare, for your health in regard to the public. And, your insurance company tells you what healthcare it’s going got pay for. If you continue (hypothetically) with bad health choices, come time for that transplant or extra surgery, they are going going to say nope. Don’t worry about the Palinland “death panels”. You already had one in your insurance company. Sounds like your issue is more ideological than practical.

Halfvast Conspirator March 19, 2015 at 12:51 pm

If you have insurance, either “private” or obamacare, you are in a pool, and yeah, the pool gets to tell you what to do, or not, and whether it will pay for your good/bad choices.

Mom March 19, 2015 at 1:54 pm

My insurance company, thus far, has not mandated vaccines.

Twylaa March 21, 2015 at 5:10 pm

Cervical cancer is very treatable if caught early via regular pap smears. And most people’s immune system fights off the HPV virus without developing cancer. Certain behaviors such as smoking increase the risk.

Resa Forseth Wagner-Pittman March 21, 2015 at 5:18 pm

I don’t know where you get the $50 from, but Guardasil is a 3 shot series that costs over $600.

Or we can educate on the dangers of unprotected sex and even encourage abstinence, and save both the $50 and the so-called hundreds of thousands of dollars. Let’s be clear here. HPV is transmitted via sex. Why are there advocates for mandating a vaccine for a sexually transmitted disease? Perhaps they’re morally bankrupt?

Halfvast Conspirator March 19, 2015 at 11:22 am

No, it is because it is cheap and easy to vaccinate against a terrible disease that will cost the taxpayers HUGE money for medical treatments, whatever the reason for the transmission of the disease.

You can’t legislate morality but you can legislate for vaccination, which will at least deal with “moral” failures (or your basic common f*cking which seems to have many other results as well).

Chris Coppenbarger March 19, 2015 at 11:40 am

How is the treatment of this going to cost taxpayers money? Isn’t that what health insurance is for? The “victims” of this disease will suffer for their own consequences. If they wish to have free reign sex, then they are the ones who can go get the vaccination. The fact is, this disease is only spread via sex. It’s like HIV, simply spread through some sort of transfer of bodily fluids. Should we also mandate a vaccination for HIV as well. It’s based on personal choice. Any mandate for such a vaccine is a full-on attack on liberty.

Rakkasan March 19, 2015 at 11:50 am

yeah, that “threat to liberty” definitely takes priority of a potential life threatening disease. Any day, Your liberty becomes insurance costs, tax costs, and plenty o misery to anyone who contracts it. But you flying that yellow flag with the snake on it is much more important

Another Mom March 19, 2015 at 11:57 am

HPV can be spread through skin contact as well and is extremely common. I had my daughters vaccinated, but it was my choice and my bill – nothing mandated.

Mom March 19, 2015 at 12:04 pm

Skin contact?! Is that what teenagers call it nowadays?

Mom March 19, 2015 at 12:06 pm

Can’t wait to get in bed tonight and say to the hubby, “Let’s have skin contact!”

Another Mom March 19, 2015 at 12:09 pm

Ha. One of the dangers is infected skin not covered by condoms spreading the virus. My doctor said one reason it is so easily spread is because people don’t realize that skin contact is a common way it is transferred.

And if you want to do that, I would have little to say about that. It’s between you, your doc and your daughters.

I don’t need a law that tells me what medical procedure to provide for my children.

Halfvast Conspirator March 19, 2015 at 12:50 pm

Uh, everyone who pays taxes pays for health/medical care now, or their employers pay for the insurance so that the insurance pool (i.e., you and your employer) pays, so when someone gets the illness, the insurance (i.e., you and me) pays. If they don’t have insurance, someone(s) still pay. That’s how it works and why you should want to minimize what you pay for, in this case a vaccination that will obviate huge future costs for those who aren’t vaccinated and get the disease.

Mom March 19, 2015 at 11:54 am

Maybe we should make the Flu Shot mandatory too?

yes, March 19, 2015 at 5:18 pm

If flu routinely caused oral, cervical, and lung cancers, that would be a good idea.

Mom March 22, 2015 at 4:38 pm

HPV does not routinely cause these cancers. Yeah I heard about the movie star Michael Douglas. How many other people can you name who have these HPV caused cancers? Probably none. Because it is quite rare.

ione murphy March 21, 2015 at 11:40 pm

its in the National Adult Immunization Plan Draft 2015, if it passes, ALL adults will receive any vaccines the gov feels is necessary for us.
From the draft;
“The benefits of vaccination are not realized equally across the U.S.population. Adult vaccination rates remain low in the United States, and significant racial and ethnic disparities also exist.

The NAIP is intended to facilitate coordinated action by federal and nonfederal partners to protect public health and achieve optimal prevention of infectious diseases and their consequences through vaccination of adults. The NAIP includes indicators to draw attention to and track progress against core goals. These indicators will measure progress against set standards and inform future implementation and quality improvement efforts.”

You can transmit HPV by having sex for the first time with your wife in the missionary position for the purpose of reproduction, your argument is invalid.

Actually, if both the husband and wife are first-timers, then you are wrong.

It is uncommon but possible for a mother to pass HPV to the child during birth.

You can be educated and living a monogamous life but if your significant other is stepping out on you, exposing you to HPV thus making unilateral decisions about your health and welfare…hello cervical, throat, lung cancer.. .

Maybe there was a reason why a former SC First Lady was passionate about prevention of HPV and vaccination?

Cancer kills the innocent too.

and so your recommendation is?

Mom March 19, 2015 at 11:52 am

This is a movement to making the HPV vaccination a REQUIREMENT for all. My recommendation is for the parents to have the freedom to decide.
I did my own research and opted out of giving my kids the HPV. It is too new to know the long term effects. Regular Pap smears catch cervical cancers at early treatable stages. How many people do you know who have died of cervical cancer lately?

Yeah. Don’t think there is any benefit to the boys, only protects their sexual partners.
Did you know that faithful married women, rape, incest, and abuse victims can also get HPV that can lead to cervical cancer?

Mom March 19, 2015 at 12:17 pm

Of course. I also believe regular PAP smears catch early cervical cancer, which is rare to begin with, that can easily be treated. There are risks to every vaccine, known and unknown. Get your calculator out and do a little Probability and Statistics and then decide.

Judicial Watch announced today that it has received doucments from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) revealing that its National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) has awarded $5,877,710 dollars to 49 victims in claims made against the highly controversial HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccines. To date 200 claims have been filed with VICP, with barely half adjudicated.

The documents came in response to a February 28, 2013, Judicial Watch lawsuit against HHS to force the department to comply with a November 1, 2012, Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (No. 1:13-cv-00197)). On March 12, 2013, The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), an agency of HHS, provided Judicial Watch with documents revealing the following information:

Only 49 of the 200 claims filed have been compensated for injury or death caused from the (HPV) vaccine. Of the 49 compensated claims 47 were for injury caused from (HPV) vaccine the additional 2 claims were for death caused due to the vaccine.

92 (nearly half) of the total 200 claims filed are still pending. Of those pending claims 87 of the claims against (HPV) vaccine were filed for injury, the remaining 5 claims were filed for death.

59 claims have been dismissed outright by VICP. The alleged victims were not compensated for their claims against the HPV vaccine. Of the claims dismissed, 57 were for injuries, 2 were for deaths allegedly caused by the HPV vaccine.

The amount awarded to the 49 claims compensated totaled 5,877,710.87 dollars. This amounts to approximately $120,000 per claim.

According to World Health Organization data, the rate of serious adverse reactions reported to the VAERS system is 2.5 times higher than the current age-standardized death rate from cervical cancer. According to an evaluation performed by Sanevax of the 75 FDA approved vaccines, the HPV vaccines account for 60% of the entire VAERS database of adverse events. This includes 64% of all reported deaths and 65% of life threatening reactions. An additional 82% of all cases of permanent disability for women under 30 years of age is attributed to the HPV vaccines. Adverse reactions include seizures, anaphylaxis, paralysis, transverse myelitis, Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS), acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), opsoclonus-myoclonus syndrome (uncontrollable movement of the eyes back and forth and jerking movements of the extremities), brachial neuritis, loss of vision, postural tachycardia syndrome, facial palsy, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, chronic fatigue syndrome, blindness, pancreatitis, speech problems, short term memory loss, miscarriage, multiple sclerosis, autoimmune disorders, and Guillain-Barre Syndrome.

Most vaccine are quite safe but none are safe!

This vaccine is definitely not safe.

Merck publish (to health professionals!!!) ‘Highlights of Prescribing Information’, which includes:

Serious Adverse Events in Clinical Studies

Serious adverse events were collected throughout the entire study period (range one month to 48 months post-last dose) for the six integrated clinical studies for
GARDASIL 9. Out of the 13,236 individuals who were administered GARDASIL 9 and had safety follow-up, 305 reported a serious adverse event; representing 2.3% of the population. As a comparison, of the 7,378 individuals who were administered GARDASIL and had safety follow-up, 185 reported a serious adverse event; representing 2.5% of the population.

That is 2300/100,000 recipients get a SERIOUS adverse event (SAE) when cervical cancer rates are 8/100,000. Deaths due to cervical cancer have come down from 8 to 2/100,000 over the last 40 years with no vaccine. At this rate it should be zero within 10 years. The vaccine won’t be effective for at least 20 years (the time it takes cancer to develop) Why do you need a vaccine which causes so many SAE?

Research it yourself but don’t just believe what most health professionals tell you.

Health Department in Utah Bans Gardasil; The CBCD Urges the CDC to Re-examine the Benefits of the HPV Vaccine

According to a report published on December 06, 2013 states that Utah’s Southwest Health Department has banned Gardasil, “citing low demand, high costs – and questioning the benefits (1).” . Utah is not alone. As it turns out, the health ministries of Japan and Israel have both raised serious concerns regarding the HPV vaccine

Around 2,000 reported side effects after using Gardasil cervical cancer vaccine have determined Japanese government officials to withdraw Gardasil from the market in 2013. The side effects of using Gardasil include seizures, brain damage, blindness, paralysis, speech problems, pancreatitis and short-term memory loss, while other patients have died after taking the vaccine. Since the government began offering girls HPV shots, 1,968 adverse events were reported, including 358 that were evaluated as serious by a JMLHW committee

The organization confirmed that in Japan, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare warned local governments that the HPV vaccine should not be recommended amid safety concerns

Meeting to Impose Moratorium on HPV vaccine -Parisian offices of the European Parliament. To halt HPV vaccination programs, pending intense investigation and proof of stated purpose could very well be the salvation of our young people.

Last April, I personally made a public demand for a moratorium, i.e. an end to mass vaccination with this vaccine until in-depth research can be performed on its benefits, risks and effectiveness.

HPV vaccine Gardasil has a dark side, Star investigation finds

Letter to the Editor – South Asian Journal of Cancer
“It is possible that mass HPV vaccination may be proven (or refuted) to be an effective strategy for reduction in population cervical cancer mortality rates, at some point of time in the future. However, its utility as a public health measure, on the balance between claimed benefits, possible harms and cost, remains unproven at present. We remain of the considered opinion that health policy planners in India would be well advised to carefully assimilate independent opinion on this subject that is not influenced by vaccine manufacturers, who stand to gain enormously from implementation of this intervention in vast populations. We also strongly advocate the immediate implementation of a cervical cancer screening program in this country that is feasible and cost?effective. “

Twylaa March 21, 2015 at 5:45 pm

Typically, when an adverse reaction to a vaccine is reported, our health authorities crunch a few numbers and then declare it to be a coincidence. These two scientists delved further, examining the brain tissues of two teenagers who died after receiving vaccines for HPV.

Death after Quadrivalent Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccination: Causal or Coincidental?


Background: The proper understanding of a true risk from vaccines is crucial for avoiding unnecessary adverse reactions (ADRs). However, to this date no solid tests or criteria have been established to determine whether adverse events are causally linked to vaccinations.

Objectives: This research was carried out to determine whether or not some serious autoimmune and neurological ADRs following HPV vaccination are causal or merely coincidental and to validate a biomarker-based immunohistochemical (IHC) protocol for assessing causality in case of vaccination-suspected serious adverse neurological outcomes.

Methods: Post-mortem brain tissue specimens from two young women who suffered from cerebral vasculitis- type symptoms following vaccination with the HPV vaccine Gardasil were analysed by IHC for various immuno- inflammatory markers. Brain sections were also stained for antibodies recognizing HPV-16L1 and HPV-18L1 antigen which are present in Gardasil.

Results: In both cases, the autopsy revealed no anatomical, microbiological nor toxicological findings that might have explained the death of the individuals. In contrast, our IHC analysis showed evidence of an autoimmune vasculitis potentially triggered by the cross-reactive HPV-16L1 antibodies binding to the wall of cerebral blood vessels in all examined brain samples. We also detected the presence of HPV-16L1 particles within the cerebral vasculature with some HPV-16L1 particles adhering to the blood vessel walls. HPV-18L1 antibodies did not bind to cerebral blood vessels nor any other neural tissues. IHC also showed increased T-cell signalling and marked activation of the classical antibody-dependent complement pathway in cerebral vascular tissues from both cases. This pattern of complement activation in the absence of an active brain infection indicates an abnormal triggering of the immune response in which the immune attack is directed towards self-tissue.

Conclusions: Our study suggests that HPV vaccines containing HPV-16L1 antigens pose an inherent risk for triggering potentially fatal autoimmune vasculopathies.

Practice implications: Cerebral vasculitis is a serious disease which typically results in fatal outcomes when undiagnosed and left untreated. The fact that many of the symptoms reported to vaccine safety surveillance databases following HPV vaccination are indicative of cerebral vasculitis, but are unrecognized as such (i.e., intense persistent migraines, syncope, seizures, tremors and tingling, myalgia, locomotor abnormalities, psychotic symptoms and cognitive deficits), is a serious concern in light of the present findings. It thus appears that in some cases vaccination may be the triggering factor of fatal autoimmune/neurological events. Physicians should be aware of this association.

Is there anyone who has read through all my comments and still thinks this is a simple issue?

Gardasil will be the biggest scandal in medical history – Le Monde

“Former Merck doctor predicts that Gardasil will be the biggest scandal in medical history…

“In the interview Dr. Bernard Dalbergue talks about his surprise at how Marcia Angell, former head of the respected New England Journal of Medicine, left her job because she believed that the pharmaceutical industry manipulated the clinical research and controlled all the information that got to public attention. She, like many others, claimed that scientific studies that on the surface was described as objective and independent, was actually written by the pharmaceutical industry…

“’Gardasil will be the biggest scandal in medical history… The full extent of the Gardasil scandal needs to be assessed. Everyone knew when this vaccine was released on the American market that it would prove to be worthless. Diane Harper, a major opinion leader in the United States, was one of the first to blow the whistle, pointing out the fraud and scam of it all.’

“Dr. Bernard Dalbergue mentions another example of how the pharmaceutical industry has deceived the public; Mercks anti-inflammatory product, Vioxx, proved to have serious side effects, including cardiac arrest, and Merck used a lot of effort to conceal the more than 30,000 deaths due to side effects.”

From March 31, 2011 Web MD Survey– Parents worry a lot about vaccine risks and side effects, and most of them are questioning doctors about those concerns. A recent WebMD survey of parents found that:

About two-thirds search online for information about the vaccines recommended for their children. Nearly 70% say they’re looking for news about potential vaccine risks, and for news of benefits that might offset those risks. 66% said they had either questioned or refused vaccines.
The survey shows that deep concerns remain among parents regarding vaccines.

Topping the list of vaccines that parents refuse are the HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccine.

Does this stupid bimbo realize there have been 155 deaths from this vaccines since Jan? Does she realize that this is the worst vaccine ever to be perpetrated on the public since the whole shitstorm of vaccines ever started?. Does she realize that this vaccine does NOT STOP cervical cancer and that it was never tested on the age group that it is being inflicted on? Good God stop this insanity before more parents lose their daughters. All of you…STOP HER… Stop this bill. Save our daughters.
