Special Needs Children’s Doctor Speaks Against Vaccination in California


Dr. Lynn Mielke of California is one among the most recent medical doctors who spoke against mandatory vaccination, and California lawmakers’ attempt of removing the vaccine exemptions that exist. She recently offered her opinion about the CA Bill SB277 in the meetings of “California Senate Health Committee”.

Dr. Mielke, M.D., has founded the “Developmental Spectrums clinic that provides biomedical treatment for Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). She did graduation from “Indiana University School of Medicine”, as well as completed Psychiatry residency in the Neuropsychiatric Institute of UCLA.

After completing the residency, she worked for many years as a UCLA’s Associate Clinical Professor in “Department of Family Practice”, and also practiced privately at Westwood. Then, she moved to Pleasanton, and there Dr. Mielke worked in the form of psychiatrist for many years. Dr. Mielke is also one of the Fellows of “MAPS (Medical Academy of Pediatric Special Needs)”.

Besides being a special needs children’s doctor, Dr. Mielke is also an autistic child’s mother. She expressed a “deep concern” over the loss of principle of giving an informed consent, within the relationship between a doctor and a patient. She also expressed concern on her right and freedom of making her own medical decisions about her child. She stated that most children being treated in the clinic were affected by developmental delays, on account of several underlying conditions, like auto immunity to brain, chronic infections, immune deficiencies, toxin exposure, mitochondrial disorders, nutritional deficiencies and gastrointestinal disorders.

Because of these medical problems, these children have potentially higher sensitivity towards adverse reactions of vaccines. Dr. Mielke said that currently it’s not mandatory to test kids for any underlying conditions before vaccinating them, to find out whether or not the vaccine may increase their susceptibility to vaccine injuries. Hence, she sees the kids only after damage has already happened.

In such conditions, where there are medical vulnerabilities, it is important not to force the people to practice the medicine that is government-mandated. SB277 may heighten the children’s number with vaccine injury. It may weaken the relationship between the doctor and patient, and the right to give informed consent.

The goal is to ensure safe vaccination. However, no vaccine policy is in place that is suitable and safe for all children. A universal, forced program of vaccination may injure many children. Once vaccination is done, there’s way to undo it. Dr Mielke strongly encouraged people to oppose the SB277.

SB277 Passed by California Senate:

Despite Dr. Mielke’s testimony, and the opposition by other health professionals, and a large number of parents, for the SB277, the bill was still passed by California Senate, through votes 25 to 10.

Joel Anderson, a senator among 10 senators who opposed the bill, intended offering an amendment, according to which doctors would need to inform the parents about the contents in a vaccine prior to administering it. There are religious exemptions because a lot of people will not prefer injecting cell lines in their bodies, from human babies that have been aborted. The majority “tabled” the amendment without any open, full debate about the amendment’s merits.

After the denial of any attempts for making amendments to the bill, SB277 came for vote. Senator Joel Anderson stated the following:

Senate Bill 277 violates parental rights and infringes upon Californian’s basic fundamental right to freely exercise their faith. As legislators, one of our most basic responsibilities is to protect individual rights, not trample them by violating one’s faith. Inserting state government between the sacred parent-child relationship is wrong. I opposed SB277 on the Senate Floor and will continue to fight to protect parental rights and religious liberties anywhere they are threatened.”

What would happen next?

SB277 would be going to California Assembly now. The media of California is coming up with one-sided news supporting SB277. Irrespective of this, California is seeing mass demonstrations throughout it that don’t support SB277, rather oppose it.
