This is the story of my life. I received the following question to the blog about the legality of vaccination:
New comment from Matthew on Is Forced Vaccination Legal?:
I have a question: Can vaccines ever be made mandatory for children and or adults???
it clearly stated in the Australian Constitution under "valid consent" that persons should be able to make a informed and valid consent under NO presence of coercion. please clarify...
Dear Matthew, there is no such provision in the Australian Constitution about "Valid Consent".
The word "valid" does not appear in the Constitution of Australia. The word 'lighthouse' appears more times in the Constitution than the word 'valid'.
The word "consent" appears only about 10 times and mainly about the creation of new states in the Commonwealth.
LET ME REPEAT: THERE IS NO SUCH CLAUSE AS 'VALID CONSENT' IN THE CONSTITUION.
If you're going to make claims like 'it['s] clearly stated in the Australian Constitution under 'valid consent' then at least read the document.
It is not clearly stated in the Constitution because it's not even stated in the Constitution.
You can be subjected to go through medical interventions against your will if it's in the public interest. You could be quarantined for example or you could be chemically restrained if so required, whether mass vaccination would be one of these would depend on the benefit of the public interest.
Read the Constitution, it's really interesting: http://www6.austlii.edu.au/au/legis/cth/consol_act/coaca430.rtf
And get vaccinated.
