Is your state enacting “Big Brother Pandemic” laws in light of the “Swine Flu”?

On April 28, 2009, the Massachusetts State Senate unanimously passed the ‘Act Relative to Pandemic and Disaster Preparation and Response in the Commonwealth.’ This act essentially takes away all rights that we have as citizens in the state of Massachusetts if there is a disease or ‘adverse health condition’ that the Governor sees fit to declare a state of emergency. This act is a complete violation of our state and federal Constitution all in the name of the ‘swine flu’. This act has been around for a while but the legislature could not agree on the details. Now that the CDC has fear mongered people into believing that the Swine flu (H1N1 flu) could be a pandemic, the State Senate has taken it upon itself to pass the Act which now sits in the House.

The bill states that if you are a healthcare provider and you refuse to give vaccinations, you can be jailed, fined or both without a warrant:

“Upon request or issuance of an order by the commissioner or his or her designee, or by a local public health authority or its designee, an officer authorized to serve criminal process may arrest without a warrant … Any person who knowingly violates an order of the commissioner or his or her designee, or of a local public health authority or its designee… shall be punished by imprisonment for not more than 6 months, or by a fine of note more than one thousand dollars, or both.”

The state maintains that they can obtain any medical records and other information that they deem necessary. If you are a healthcare provider and you do not provide the names and records of people who have come to you and have said ‘adverse health condition’, you can be fined and lose your license to practice:

“Any person required to report who refuses to file a report required by this section shall be subject to a fine of not more than one thousand dollars. An individual health care provider shall be subject to suspension or revocation of his or her license or certification if the refusal to file a report is gross, wanton, or willful misconduct and poses a serious risk to the public health.”

If you are a citizen and you refuse to get the vaccination, the state has the right to isolate or quarantine you even if you are completely healthy
