To The Entire Westford Board of Health: RESIGN NOW
To The Entire Westford Board
of Health: RESIGN NOW
Individuals who do not stand
up to authoritarian government on behalf of their local constituents are not
fit to hold public office.
Friends & Neighbors,
Believe it or not, the divisive
indoor mask mandate imposed by our local Board of Health – as misguided as it
was – was not that body’s most egregious violation of trust and true scientific
leadership in recent weeks.
Several weeks ago White House medical
advisor Anthony Fauci, while discussing a prominent study out of Israel, readily acknowledged that “natural immunity [from COVID-19] provides a lot of
protection, even better than the vaccines alone.”
Validating highly ignored
scientific reports, several J&J / Pfizer scientists recently conceded the
same thing: “When somebody is naturally
immune … they probably have … more antibodies against the virus.” Another
remarked, “You’re protected most likely for longer since there was a natural
response.” Alluding to a lack of any long-term studies and the infinitesimally low
mortality rate for young individuals, one warned against vaccinating children: “It’s a kid, you just don’t do that, you
know? Not something that’s so unknown in terms of repercussions down the road,
Also coming to terms with the
fact that COVID-19 poses a significant risk only to certain populations, Norway recently downgraded its official approach, now treating the virus “as one of several
respiratory diseases circulating with seasonal variation … This means that the
control measures that will be applicable for various respiratory diseases will
require the same level of societal preparedness.”
At the same time, CDC Director
Rochelle Wolensky was admitting to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that vaccination “cannot prevent transmission” of COVID-19.
This is all science-based
information that either alleviates fear and/or undermines the rationale supporting
a strategy of universal vaccination as a tenable solution to the ongoing
Moreover, this is information
that the BOH is clearly not interested in making Westford residents aware of.
Perhaps, in normal times, it
could be argued that it isn’t the BOH’s responsibility to inform the town of every
medical angle. However, two weeks ago the BOH was reminded that the State of
Massachusetts is currently coercing Westford residents – particularly young
students – to get vaccinated under the threat of indefinite school masking if
they fail to do so. At the same time, the BOH was made aware of a new study declaring
that “the two main COVID-19 vaccines used in the United States are more likely to land teenage boys in the hospital than COVID-19 itself.” Preliminary data from
a recent Nordic study echoed similar discovery, causing both Sweden and Denmark
to suspend “the use of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine for younger age groups … [based
on] a suspicion of an increased risk of heart inflammation.”
Every member of the BOH decided
to ignore the suggestion that it is incumbent upon them to quickly make certain
that Westford residents are as informed as possible while being coerced to
vaccinate their children.
It truly doesn’t matter how much the
BOH is in disagreement with all these studies and statements, or how many counterpoints
they could make. The fact of the matter is that they all represent serious and
real data consistent with previous scientific observations.
In fact, scientific dispute is
basically the point here.
Managing one’s life through the
COVID-19 era is complicated, marked by millions of different people with their
own unique circumstances and personal considerations. Unfortunately, we are
being guided through these complex times by individuals devoted to the idea that
a simple solution exists for everyone:
“Get that damn vaccine” is how one exasperated official put it during a public BOH meeting last month, while openly disparaging Westford residents who have chosen to forgo vaccination.
If there is ever a time when local
elected leaders are obligated to arm their constituents with the whole truth, it
is when they are under severe pressure from high-level government autocrats.
Unfortunately, it has become obvious
that the entire BOH is a monolithic body in full agreement with the State’s
policy prescriptions – group-thinking bureaucrats that simply find this
one-size-fits-all solution worthy of an authoritarian nudge.
Westford residents deserve elected
leaders with the discipline to recognize a calling that is superior to their own
personal whims – people who are appalled at top-down government force, and willing
to stand up for our kids and our town’s autonomy.
Westford can do better than state collaborators who ignore anything that might undercut a strategy of universal
vaccination, and who contribute to an overall toxic environment of irrational
fear and contempt for one's neighbors.
For these stated reasons, every member of the Westford Board of Health should resign immediately.
Please sign this petition that
aims toward such an outcome. Thank you.
