No Requirement for Medical Treatment (Including Experimental Injections) Without Consent (Implementing Article 6 of the Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights) Bill 2021

 

 

 

OUTLINE

 

 

1.    Australia is a signatory to the Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights

 

 

2.    Article 6.1 of the Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights provides;

 

Any preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic medical intervention is only to be carried out with the prior, free and informed consent of the person concerned, based on adequate information. 

 

The consent should, where appropriate, be express and may be withdrawn by the person concerned at any time and for any reason without disadvantage or prejudice.

 

 

3.    Although Australia is signatory to the Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights, the articles of this Declaration do not form part of Australian law.

 

 

4.    Australians are currently not receiving ‘adequate information’ to enable them to give ‘free and informed consent’ in regard to the administration of preventative medical intervention (the covid vaccinations) by virtue of:

 

a)    Being misled as to the efficacy of the covid vaccines, and

 

b)    Being misled as to the risk and safety of the covid vaccines, and

 

c)    Being misled as the availability of alternates to the covid vaccines such as Ivermectin tablets.

 

 

5.    Australians are currently being coerced, manipulated, and/or bullied into taking a preventive medical intervention (the Covid vaccines) and are facing disadvantage and prejudice if they do not submit to taking this medical intervention, through forced vaccine mandates, Vaccine Passports, and suspension of freedoms of those that exercise their human right of electing not to take this medical intervention.

 

6.    The above paragraphs (4) and (5) are acts that violate article 6.1 of the Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights.

 

7.    This Bill will ensure that Australia meets its obligations under International Humans Rights conventions by prohibiting conduct detailed in the above paragraphs (4) and (5).
