Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Social Services Minister Scott Morrison of Australia just announced a shocking and historic reform affecting parents who are concerned about vaccinating their children. Those who refuse to vaccinate their kids will be denied as much as $15,000 in childcare rebates and welfare under new rules by the Federal Government.
Aussies are calling it ‘no jab, no pay,’ and it is a sinister overreach of government into personal medical choice.
Previously, parents could refuse vaccination through a ‘conscientious objector’ loophole. Parents will still be able to resist immunizing their children on medical and religious grounds without financial penalty, but the removal of the “conscientious objector’ clause means that parents won’t simply be able point to point to the medical uncertainty that vaccines are safe as a reason to refuse them for their children.
