Defending Health Freedom: From Informed-Consent to Implied Consent

By Rosanne Lindsay, ND

In a previous blog, I asked, “what happened to informed-consent?”  Informed-consent is the cornerstone of Health Freedom, a form of art, really, since it can be crafted to suit the needs of the writer. Unfortunately, its original purpose has all but gone extinct, along with the dinosaur and dodo bird (Raphus cucullatus).

Informed Consent: permission granted in the knowledge of the possible consequences, typically that which is given by a patient to a doctor for treatment with full knowledge of the possible risks and benefits.

Today, informed-consent has become implied consent, written for benefit those in a position of power.  The American Medical Association has its own specially-crafted definition. The truth is that those who own the narrative control the outcome. Owners determine the trends that create the laws because the system is rigged.

First, the owners write policy. Then they publish the polls and “trends in vaccine refusal” in their “Journal of Ethics.” They build a case that becomes the law where “permission granted” is implied. This strategy not only happens in the vaccine movement which seeks to end non-medical exemptions, but also in the natural health movement which seeks to eliminate full access to homeopathy as a healing modality.

Instead of playing victim to their narratives, why not refuse to sign their papers and reclaim the narrative?

To Sign or Not to Sign?

In a world where restrictions outweigh freedoms, and risks overtake benefits, where Medical Kidnap occurs daily in hospitals through Child Protective Services (CPS), you can choose not to sign any release forms. When you are asked to sign something for declining a treatment or a vaccine, just say NO, thank you.

Those who have the power will attempt to coerce you.  First parents who refuse to vaccinate will be required to watch an informational video (as in Oregon) and submit their certificate. Then, Home Schools will be visited by agents of Child Protective Services (as in California).

You can refuse to be a part of a system that claims to own your body or the body of your children. You can seek care services outside the mainstream medical system with holistic health providers. When the public school system says you must be fully compliant with the CDC vaccine schedule, which continues to add new multivalent vaccines without adequate safety testing, and with associated sudden infant deaths, you can leave the school system altogether.

When you have attempted to find balance in the legal system, and it has failed you, there are plenty of alternative options when it comes to defending freedoms. You can choose to come together in a community to Home School children or grow your own herbal medicinals. When the government goes after Home Schooled children by putting them in the same category as Abused or Neglected, for “being a risk to the population at large,” you can choose to withdraw from the government system altogether; the subject of another blog.

Health Freedom means that in order to have health, you must have freedom, and in order to be free, you must keep your health. If you don’t defend your rights, expect to lose them. President Theodore Roosevelt, in a letter to Henry L. Sprague, on January 26th 1900, wrote:

Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far.

Health freedom asks that you speak loudly, even if your voice shakes, and leave the big stick at home. If you carry the stick you will be arrested for “carry without a permit.” Violence begets violence and chaos ensues. You have your voice, that is your power. Use it to speak your definition of informed-consent.

During this time of censorship and transition to a fascist dictatorship, use your voice or lose your ability to speak. Speak loudly, with respect, and “inform” your legislators, that they are there as public servants, to serve you. If they ignore you, then you have a rogue government on your hands. In any bad relationship, for the sake of peace, there comes a need to separate. In the words of Thomas Jefferson, in the Declaration of Independence:

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation….
