(NaturalNews) A current California bill, AB 499, would “allow a minor who is 12 years of age or older to consent to medical care related to the prevention of a sexually transmitted disease.” That is, children as young as 12 will be able to get a Gardasil or other STD vaccine without their parents’ knowledge or consent if this bill passes. Disturbingly, North Carolina has a much broader child consent law already on the books: “Any minor may give effective consent . . . for medical health services for theprevention. . . of venerealdiseaseand other [reportable] diseases…” I call theselaws“Stealth Vaccine Laws” because they provide for the administration ofvaccineswithout the word “vaccine” or “immunization” appearing in the law. Thus, they may slip under the radar of anti-vaccine activists doing electronic searches forvaccinebills and laws using those terms.
