Advocates for Medical Freedom Declare #STANDWITHSEARS Day Regarding Dr. Sears and Vaccine ExemptionsOregonians for Medical Freedom, a coalition of Oregon voters championing medical freedom and parental rights that helped defeat a similar Oregon bill to California’s SB 277, announced today that it is deeply troubled by the accusation of the Medical Board of California that Bob Sears, M.D., committed “gross negligence” by granting a medical vaccine exemption to a toddler whose renal and digestive systems went into failure after his two-month vaccinations and who went limp for 24 hours after his three-month shots. “Dr. Sears, by granting a medical exemption, may very well have saved a young child’s life while causing no harm to the public,” said Dr. Paul Thomas, M.D., a pediatrician who has over 13,000 children in his private practice in Portland, Oregon, Committee Chair of OFMF, ct o-author of the best-selling book, The Vaccine-Friendly Plan, and an outspoken champion of children’s health and informed consent. “As many remember during the SB 277 proceedings, Californians were publicly and repeatedly reassured by Senator Richard Pan, M.D. that doctors would not be under inappropriate scrutiny for providing medical exemptions from vaccines for at-risk patients. How much more at-risk can a child be than one who has suffered multiple adverse vaccine reactions?” Oregonians for Medical Freedom, on behalf of parents everywhere who believe that all medical procedures should remain a choice made between an informed and consenting parent and their doctor, declare Monday, September 12th, #StandWithSears Day. They are asking the Medical Board to close the case against Dr. Sears and respect the sanctity of the doctor-patient relationship.
