California Bill Aims To Jab Children Without Parental Consent
A new proposal introduced by a California state senator Thursday would allow children aged 12 and up to be inoculated without their parents’ consent if passed.
San Francisco Democrat senator Scott Wiener stated that Alabama allows such decisions at age 14, Oregon at 15, Rhode Island and South Carolina at 16, and that Washington D.C. has an even lower limit at age 11.
Wiener also pointed out that the state of California already allows children 12 and up to take the Hepatitis B and Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines without the consent of their parents.
The state senator argued that the aforementioned developments help justify the radical proposal.
“Giving young people the autonomy to receive life-saving vaccines, regardless of their parents’ beliefs or work schedules, is essential for their physical and mental health,” he said. “It’s unconscionable for teens to be blocked from the vaccine because a parent either refuses or cannot take their child to a vaccination site.”
The state of California currently allows minors from the ages of 12 to 17 to take an inoculation without the permission of their parents or guardians if the shot is intended to prevent a sexually prevented disease.
Republican lawmakers have argued that the new bill proposed by Democrats is yet another example of the party trying to make insert the state into parenting rather than allowing adults to make decisions over how they raise their own children.
“This to me seems to be another example of Democrats wanting to remove parents from the equation,” said Republican Assemblyman James Gallagher. “I think that’s flawed policy. I think parents are vital to these decisions.”
Gallagher also suggested that Wiener may not be able to pass the radical bill despite the Legislature being compromised of an overwhelming Democrat majority.
“I think there will be bipartisan support for the proposition that parents should be involved in their kids’ health care decisions, in deciding what types of medical care and drugs they should be taking,” Gallagher said.
