The Ethics of Vaccinations

Recently @camille1234 shared this video because of the events in the news regarding mandatory vaccination and hearings that were being held in the Senate.

Alberto Giubilini on the Ethics of Vaccinations

Practical Ethics Channel Published on Mar 5, 2019

Why do some people refuse to have their child vaccinated? Are there any good reasons not to vaccinate one’s child? Why should one have one's child vaccinated if this doesn't make a difference to whether the community is protected? Why is vaccinating one’s child an ethical issue? In this interview with Dr Katrien Devolder, Dr Alberto Giubilini (Philosophy, Oxford) discusses these and other questions, which he addresses in his new book 'The Ethics of Vaccination'

Below you will see the exchange of comments on this video

Comment: Mary 2 Day

I am curious if Dr Alberto Giubilini has children of his own. I question the ethics of the Pharmaceutical Industry and the fact that they are totally free from liability. It is not a fair playing field when "Big Pharma" does not suffer any consequences, but the over 900,000 people listed on do because of injuries or death to family members. I also question who funds his research because it is important to follow the money when researchers speak out on important topics.

Comment: The Practical Ethics Channel

Dr Giubilini's research is funded by the Wellcome Trust and the Oxford Martin School

Comment: Mary 2 Day

@PracticalEthicsChannel Thank you for your reply to my comment.

As a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner for 20+years I am well aware that Polysorbate 80 has a negative effect on fertility. It is commonly found in many vaccines that are now being forced upon children.
Therefore it comes as no surprise to me that the Wellcome Trust and the Sanger Institute have such close ties.

I believe that all people have the right to a full and complete life and that it is not up to anyone or organization to play “God.” Hatred for our fellow humans has no place in our society. Unfortunately that is not the philosophy of Planned Parenthood who was founded by Margaret Sanger. As seen in this detailed and sourced documentary.

It would not be right to discuss the Ethics of Vaccinations without including the money from the Pharmaceutical Industry that greases the palms of the Legislators. Why they feel they have the right to decide what should be injected into another persons body is anyone's guess.

One piece of legislation the industry has lobbied heavily on recently is the 21st Century Cures Act. The bill, which passed the House, would encourage the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) to rely less on randomized controlled trials when deciding whether or not to put a new drug on the market. Critics argue that this would all but guarantee that more drugs will hit pharmacy shelves at a faster pace, though potentially at the expense of patient safety.

I guess it comes as no surprise that HB 1638 - 2019-20 Promoting immunity against vaccine preventable diseases
Passed the Senate. And I heard it said today that we are now living in the "United States of Pharma."

Last but not least when we are discussing the Ethics of Vaccination let's remember that the Pharmaceutical industry is free from all liability

We are winning this fight. I'm starting to think vaccines might be what it takes for SHTF. I personally want to offer Dr. William Thompson protection when he finally gets subpoenaed by Congress. The last thing we need is for his picture to go up alongside of the rest of the doctors already killed by Big Pharma.
