Biodefense and Pandemic Vaccine Act of 2005

Compulsary and forced experimental vaccinations. Vaccine damage immunity for drug companies. Imprisonment for any and all who refuse to comply.

If you think the sounds like some Orwellian nightmare, you're absolutely right, but fiction it's not. It's currently before the Senate as S1873, aka 'The Biodefense and Pandemic Vaccine and Drug Development Act of 2005', or 'Bioshield Two'. As well, the legislation also introduces the proposed formation of yet another governmental body, Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Agency or BARDA.

The bill is in currently in the first stage of the legislative process where it will be considered in committee at some future date.

Like all fashionable governmental entities that have cropped up since the holocaust of 9-11, the BARDA agency would be exempt from long-standing open records and meetings laws that apply to government departments. Those exemptions would "streamline the development process, safeguard national security and protect the proprietary interests of drug companies", say Republican backers of the bill.

S 1873 also proposes giving manufacturers immunity from liability in exchange for their participation in the public-private effort.

Senator Richard Burr (R-NC), architect of the bill and Chairman of the HELP Subcommittee on Bioterrorism and Public Health Preparedness, told the full HELP Committee yesterday that the legislation "creates a true-partnership" between the federal government, the pharmaceutical industry and academia to walk the drug companies "through the Valley of Death" in bringing a new vaccine or drug to market.

The National Vaccine Information Center, an advocacy group, called the legislation "a drug company stockholder's dream and a consumer's worst nightmare."

If the legislation passes, this wouldmean that the government would have the ability to subject you to experimental vaccinations attheir behest, as well as alleviate any responsibility or criminal liability of pharmaceutical companies at large for injuries or damage caused. It will establish BARDA, as the single point of authority for the advanced research and development of drugs and vaccines in response to bioterrorism and natural disease outbreaks such as the flu.

BARDA additionally will be exempt from the Freedom of Information Act and the Federal Advisory Committee Act, insuring that no evidence of injuries or deaths caused by drugs and vaccines labeled as "countermeasures" will become public.

Ingri Cassel, National Vaccination Liberation Organization (VacLib) director called the legislation so serious that " the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC)," issued a red alert on the Senate HELP Committee's passage of it.

Ironically, the legislation conjures correlations to the underlying plot of the popular movie "V for Vendetta" where the hero V emerges as vigilante after having been subjected to forced experimental vaccinations when the government secretly unleashes a bioterror viral campaign against its citizens in order to create panic and gain totalitarian control.
