We need everyone to get an appointment with their MPs, especially your State MPs as they are the ones who will be deciding whether to implement the No Jab No Play laws and if you can your federal MPs too and educate them on this issue.
You don’t have to go alone, get a few friends or contact the AVN or your local support groups and they will help connect you with others in your area. You need to show your politicians the real science and government data that shows that their vaccine policies are faith based not evidence based.
You can print out your information and put it in a folder to give to each politician you see. Please make sure that you engage with them respectfully but honestly about the science or lack there of and how you feel about the proposed and existing legislation without attacking them, or else they are less likely to listen and just become defensive or dismissive.
If you have a vaccine injury story this is the time and the place that you really need to share it, you will not have to deal with the trolls and your identity and your loved ones identity will be safe.
If you are a medical professional or health practitioner this is also where you need to share your views and experiences so that your politicians can be shown that is not just parents who are concerned about where Australia is headed with these draconian vaccine laws but that you are too!

Firstly read this article and we suggest you take some talking points from it:
For Legislators: Opposition And Concern Regarding Australia’s No Jab No Pay/Play Laws
Here is a letter used in a petition against No Jab No Pay, you can tailor it to Play as well or just take the bits that you can relate to:
As parents it is our duty to make decisions for our children that we believe are best for them, especially when it comes to optional medical interventions like vaccinations. This is a choice that is not taken lightly and parents must make this choice without coercion or manipulation, as stated on the Government’s own website:
“For consent to be legally valid, the following elements must be present:
- It must be given by a person with legal capacity, and of sufficient intellectual capacity to understand the implications of being vaccinated.
- It must be given voluntarily in the absence of undue pressure, coercion or manipulation.
- It must cover the specific procedure that is to be performed.
- It can only be given after the potential risks and benefits of the relevant vaccine, risks of not having it and any alternative options have been explained to the individual.”
By taking away family and childcare payments or an early education away from the children of low income families or single parent families who conscientiously choose to selectively vaccinate or not vaccinate, you are putting them in the impossible position of having to choose between feeding and housing their families and vaccinating their children against their will, THIS IS NOT LEGAL CONSENT, IT IS BLACKMAIL!
If any of these children are injured or killed because their parents have been forced to vaccinate under duress, is the Government ready to be legally responsible? Especially as there is no victim friendly system in place to sue the vaccine makers or government officials in Australia.
Stop using Whooping Cough rates as an excuse to attack conscientious objectors and start looking at the real problem, the vaccine.
In 1991 <71% of Australian children were fully vaccinated and there were only 347 cases of Whooping Cough, while in 2011 with 90% of children vaccinated, we had 38,751 cases an increase of over 11,000%! How can you blame the 1% of unvaccinated children in 2017?
The vaccinated can become asymptomatic transmitters of Whooping Cough and infect young infants, while the dominant strain of Whooping Cough is not even targeted by the vaccine. A study has also linked the Whooping cough outbreaks to vaccinated children and adolescents.
If raising already high vaccination rates is the purpose of this part of the legislation and the wealthy areas of Australia have the lowest rates, then how does targeting low income or single parent families change the vaccination rates of high income families who will still be able to choose to get their child an early education?
We have seen children who have been injured or killed after vaccination in Australia, like Saba Button, Ashley Epapara and Lachlan Neyland and the hundreds of children rushed to hospital during the Fluvax debacle of 2009 . By bringing in punishments for families who choose not to vaccinate you are saying that these children are acceptable collateral damage and that they have less value than children injured or killed by diseases, how would you feel if this was your child?
Our children deserve better than a one size fits all approach to health care, especially when the healthcare products are being produced by a multi-billion dollar industry with a long and sordid history of fraud and deceptive practices. Just look at the industry whistle-blowers who have courageously come out to testify of this fact, such as Dr William Thompson PhD, Dr’s Stephen Krahling and Joan Wlochowski and the revelations of Peter Gøtzsche from the Cochrane Collaboration.
If there is a risk there MUST be a choice, ALL parents have the RIGHT and the duty to decide WHICH risk is acceptable to their own families!
