Are Mandatory Vaccines a Violation of International Law?
By Jack Gleason – 7/15/21
“Can a government entity force someone to take a vaccine against their will?” is a question dominating Internet searches with the introduction of the concept of a “Vaccine Passport.”
Opinions differ, but there are examples in the past of vaccines being required for international travel, for attendance in schools and colleges, and service in the military. But these cases are for vaccines that have been proven safe and effective and received official FDA approval after years of trials.
There is no precedent for forcing someone to take an EXPERIMENTAL vaccine, which is the case with the COVID vaccines, which the FDA admitted in their “Emergency Use Authorization…”
“An Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) is a mechanism to facilitate the availability and use of medical countermeasures, including vaccines, during public health emergencies, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic. Under an EUA, FDA may allow the use of unapproved medical products, or unapproved uses of approved medical products in an emergency to diagnose, treat, or prevent serious or life-threatening diseases or conditions when certain statutory criteria have been met…”
The FDA has not been able to approve the vaccines because the clinical trials have not concluded. And, very importantly, they continue… “including that there are no adequate, approved, and available alternatives.”
Now we can clearly understand the unprecedented and drastic reaction to the America’s Frontline Doctors’ famous press conference on the steps of the Supreme Court on July 27, 2020, almost a full year ago. The doctors were vilified and some were fired from their jobs, their video was removed after receiving over 17 million views, and their websites were “deplatformed.” This was the first time such action had ever been taken – all in the name of “dispelling false rumors and misinformation.”
Without available alternatives, the drug companies were free to dispense their “unapproved medical products” – the vaccines.
The FDA EUA admits that the vaccines come under the heading of “medical experiments,” which are regulated very carefully under a series of federal and international laws. This is because such experiments have been conducted in unethical ways in the past through coercion or without the knowledge or informed consent of the subjects. They included testing chemical and biological weapons on soldiers, mind-altering drugs on college students, and sterilization on minorities or the mentally ill.
Many of these experiments were conducted by government agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control, the U.S. military, and the CIA.
History is replete with other examples of medical experimentation, including those conducted on prisoners of war or those in internment camps. As a result, multiple international laws and treaties have been adopted to protect the innocent from dangerous exploitation, permanent injuries and death.
One such treaty is the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court which became effective on July 1st, 2002 and has been ratified by 123 different countries. It lists four core international crimes: genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and the crime of aggression.
“Crimes against humanity” include murder, extermination, enslavement, deportation, imprisonment, torture, rape, sexual slavery, enforced prostitution, forced pregnancy, enforced sterilization, persecution of ethnic groups, enforced disappearances, apartheid, and “inhumane acts of a similar character intentionally causing great suffering, or serious injury to body or to mental or physical health.”
Medical experimentation is clearly seen as an inhumane act and subject to international law. The FDA lists rules and regulations governing medical experimentation. The WMA Declaration of Helsinki – “Ethical Principles for Medical Research Involving Human Subjects” was enacted in 1964 and has been updated as recently as 2013. Although the wording may vary, these treaties and rules of behavior include these principles…
Human experiments should be based on successful experimentation in animals.
The only experiments on animals using mRNA vaccines were all failures.
Subjects must consent voluntarily, without incentives or payments of any kind or penalties for non-participation. Children under 18 cannot participate without the express written consent of their parents. Subjects should be able to withdraw from the experiment at any time.
This means that no one can be coerced, bribed or threatened to take an experimental vaccine injection, including a mandate from an employer, an airline accepting passengers, or a college requiring vaccines for returning students. Governors are not allowed to give incentives for those who have taken the shots including cash rewards, benefits or discounts, including free lottery tickets. We are hearing multiple reports of children receiving vaccinations without parental consent.
The experiments should be conducted by qualified doctors and scientists using adequate facilities.
These vaccines are being administered by poorly-trained volunteers in drive up tents, in gymnasiums, and other non-medical facilities where people suffering from adverse reactions cannot be given proper medical care.
The risks should never outweigh the benefits.
Giving an experimental vaccine to people who have almost zero risk of dying from COVID is not for the greater good.
VAERS, the U.S. government’s “Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System,” and other similar systems in other countries, are overflowing with reports of side effects of the various COVID vaccines, including blood clots, heart effects and even death. Normally these trials would be cancelled immediately with even a tiny percentage of the side effects reported.
Physical injury and mental suffering should be avoided. The experiment must be terminated if it is determined that injury, disability or death is likely to occur.
As of June 11, 2021, the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) had posted 358,379 adverse events,1 including 5,993 deaths and 29,871 serious injuries. In the 12- to 17-year-old age group, there were 271 serious injuries2 and seven deaths. Among pregnant women, there were 2,136 adverse events, including 707 miscarriages or premature births.
All of these are bound to be undercounts as, historically, less than 10% of vaccine side effects are reported to VAERS.4 An investigation by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services put it as low as 1%.
Be that as it may, the reported rate of death from COVID-19 shots now exceeds the reported death rate of more than 70 vaccines combined over the past 30 years, and it’s about 500 times deadlier than the seasonal flu vaccine, which historically has been the most hazardous.
Over 3 Billion shots have been given worldwide so far with no clear understanding of the shots’ effectiveness or long term side effects relating to fertility, blood disorders or future ability to resist other viruses. All reports of immediate side effects are scoffed at by our government officials and mainstream media, and suppressed on social media and search engine fact-checkers label them as “false information.”
But uncensored social media is replete with disturbing individual video accounts of palsy, blood clots, strokes, uncontrolled vaginal bleeding, miscarriages and stillbirths and even fatal heart attacks.
We must learn more about the vaccines, their immediate and long-term side effects before these new drugs can be approved and any mandates can be issued. An independent study is under way to catalog and analyze side effects from the COVID vaccines, including possible secondary side effects from non-vaccinated people being in close contact those who have gotten the shots.
Without proof of safety, forcing anyone to take an injection is a crime against humanity.
