A LEADING government scientific adviser who sits on the SAGE committee has called for the vaccination of children against Covid-19. The main argument is that there will be risk in schools of infection, so to keep schools open children should be vaccinated.
If all the teachers have been vaccinated, and the children aren’t at significant risk to health from the virus (which the data indicates), there is little value in vaccination in accomplishing the stated goal of keeping schools open.
What is really going on is that the interests of children are being subsumed to the interests of adults. Basically, because the adults are worried, the children have to undergo this treatment. Make no mistake – a vaccination is ‘medication for the immune system’ (Dr Mike Yeadon). It isn’t a placebo, it does something. Just what it does, it is too early to say. But should youthful, developing immune systems be medicated with an under-researched, data-deprived medication? It is not an exaggeration to consider vaccines experimental drugs – the trials are ‘live’. What has not been done, because it cannot be done, is compress time to allow for invaluable longitudinal studies. No one knows the long-term effects because the long term hasn’t arrived yet. It’s being wilfully blind not to be prepared to acknowledge that a ‘novel’ virus being treated with new technology may have unintended outcomes. It’s not alarmism to consider possible side-effects – it’s normal.
But the attitude of the government and so much of the population is anything but normal. There is a pervading sense of fear over contracting the virus, countered by a burgeoning (and bovine) desire to get back to normal life. As vaccines appear to offer relief against the former, the scales are allowed to tilt increasingly in the other direction and restoration to normal life gains volume and impetus in driving public policy.
All this ignores the moral and ethical questions posed by forcing (or even encouraging) children to undergo treatment (which is what a vaccine jab is) without a consent informed by careful reflection and a settled body of science. Who does that? Who is so selfish as to be willing to expose their children to such unknowns?
In Leviticus 26 God sets out His commands for His people, and He demands obedience. They are not requests or suggestions. This is underlined by the fact that He issues a warning if they will not keep them, in verse 14, ‘ But if ye will not hearken unto me, and will not do all these commandments . . . ’ There follows a terrifying list, which includes, in verse 29, a judgment whose result is a callousness and hardness of heart to suspend even the most natural of human inclinations, to wit, care for your own children. God warns that if you will resist Him and disobey Him, you will be prepared to commit the most unnatural of acts against the most precious. We live in a time when the real weight of the interests of children has been exposed – not weighty at all, it turns out. Children continue to be an accessory whose value is truly seen only in relation to the interests of the adults.
