We wish to inform the general public that we are thoroughly and strongly against the attempt to force our citizens into health care actions with which he or she might not agree. The national campaign to force us to be vaccinated is an unfortunate campaign. Please hear us clearly that we are not against vaccinations, no. What we are against is the forcing of citizens to accept treatments that renege on our individual rights and liberties in our health care choices.
We believe each citizen has the right to decide our healthcare choices… the choice to vaccinate or the choice to not vaccinate is an individual choice. We cherish the right and the freedom for each of our citizens to make this choice for ourselves. If elected to the Knesset, our members will uphold that cherished right in our legislating and in our committee work.
The Nuremberg Code, with which our people have had to be all too familiar in history, states that in all medical experiments that “voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.” The CEO of Pfizer recently stated that Israel is being viewed by him as an experiment for the success of his treatment. He called us the ‘world’s laboratory’. However, it is a violation of the Nuremberg Code to attempt to force citizens to undergo any medical experiment without receiving the consent of our individual citizens. Our current government’s actions overlook our rights in their application of their COVID policies.
The Code goes on to state that in all medical experiments: “…there should be made known to him the nature, duration, and purpose of the experiment; the method and means by which it is to be conducted; all inconveniences and hazards reasonably to be expected; and the effects upon his health or person which may possibly come from his participation in the experiment.”
The above point of the Code is impossible to ensure since it is unknown both to our government and to the manufacturer of the vaccines as to the “hazards” and long-term “effects upon our health”. If citizens refuse any offered treatment due to these reasons, it is an individual liberty that needs to be upheld by our government, as it is a violation of the Nuremberg Code to otherwise pressure or force compliance.
It is an additional violation of our rights in that our government agreed to supply our individual healthcare data to the Pfizer Company without our consent. The Helsinki Committee that oversees medical trials in our nation, stated“…we ask that the rights of Israeli citizens are protected under the deal struck between Israel and U.S drugmaker Pfizer.” We find that the current effort undermines our individual rights, and so we ask for your vote. With your vote, we will stand against the current policy. We state unequivocally that we uphold everyone’s right to decide for themselves: to vaccinate or not, as we fight this terrible disease and seek to eliminate it.
