My sons doctor was fully aware of the illness that consumed my son after he received those shots. He was in agreement with me that more shots would be detrimental to his health.
He filled out the required NYS medical exemption form.
The principal of the school said that she needed approval from the superintendent. Well, he said no.
I called him to question why he denied a valid medical exemption. His exact words were, "Oh don't ask me any medical questions, I can't even take my own temperature".
"So you decided to go against what my doctor said?", I asked. His reply, "I am following NYS guidelines, not one child in our district has an exemption and I am going to keep it that way".
Just like that, my son was kicked out of school.
Let me repeat this, government officials with no medical background are allowed to override a doctors decision.
This is happening all over the country. My heart goes out to all the families who are going through this, my heart goes out to all the children who can't understand why they aren't allowed in school. My heart goes out to the families who need to figure out how to homeschool.
I attempted to give my son the vaccines against everything I believe.
I previously had a religious exemption against vaccines, until the NYS government ended that in June 2019.
If you haven't judged me yet, here is your chance. I hold a sincere religious belief concerning vaccines. I believe that God made our bodies in his image. I don't believe that God wants us to inject our bodies with toxins in an attempt to avoid disease. I believe that abortion is wrong and therefore do not feel that I should play a part in the use of aborted fetal cells. But in NYS, I am no longer allowed to believe these things.
I had to make a choice for my son, I had to decide what was best for my son. I had 2 choices.
Take him out of school, a place he knew, a place he was comfortable, a place where his friends and sister were, somehow figure out how to homeschool and continue to work, all because I don't like vaccines.
Put my beliefs aside and give him those vaccines so he could stay in a place he knew, where he could continue to grow emotionally, socially and academically.
Well, I decided to put my beliefs aside. But as we all know, that didn't really work out for me.
