THE HORRIBLE TRUTH OF VACCINATION
Please VETO bill AB499, which would permit vaccination of minors as young as 12 to prevent sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) without parental knowledge or consent. Passing this bill would make Calif. the second state to have such a law after Texas, where Gov. Rick Perry has bypassed legislature to mandate vaccinating girls as young as 12 with the Gardasil vaccine, which is supposed to prevent cervical cancer.
Such a law is unjustified, as STDs are extremely rare in this age group, and Gardasil has been linked to thousands of adverse reactions including deaths.
