What's so dangerous about a doctor?

An osteopath, Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, from America was set to go to Australia and give a series of informational talks about vaccination. This tour is now in jeopardy because her views are so threatening to those who promote vaccination.

The Australian government may revoke her visa. If the Aussie government concedes to calls to prevent her from traveling to their country it would be the height of hypocrisy in light of the statements of Tony Abbott following the recent Charlie Hebdo attacks in France. Statements lauding the necessity of freedom of expression.

Whether it is religious beliefs or medical opinions, the truth has nothing to fear from the lie, so why are vaccine proponents working overtime to keep Dr. Tenpenny (and her views) from coming to Australia? The strenuous objections might lead someone to suspect that the strength of their evidence may not be all that great, otherwise there would be no problem with the airing of a different analysis of the available data.

It is very telling that those who support vaccination do not simply support vaccination - they insist that everyone else conform to this through coercive, manipulative mandates linking vaccination with participation in common activities (work, school) and now are extending this to requiring conformity of thought regarding vaccination by attempting to censor the marketplace of ideas by ensuring Dr. Tenpenny does not speak in Australia.

A good product does not need to be forced on anyone - people voluntarily, individually demand it by seeking it out and asking for it from multiple vendors or venues - more vendors and/or venues being necessary because of the spontaneous popularity of the good thing (whatever it might be).

Good products do not need to be shielded from legal liability by a fig leaf of a law (1986 National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program).

Good products are supported by research not tainted by fraud (Thorsen/mumps/Merck,
#CDCwhistleblower - just for starters) and conflict of interest.

Good ideas are not threatened by free and open and public debate.

It seems vaccines may not be a good product.

I'm really not anti-vaccine so much as I am pro-freedom ... those who believe the benefits of vaccination are more than the risks should get them. Those who have more concern about the risks of vaccination than any benefit derived from them should be free to decline.

Do the research and make up your own mind. If you want to learn more about Dr. Sherri Tenpenny and her views, follow her on Facebook or Twitter. Or not! It's up to you. She also has this website:
