One of the worst things callous anti-vaccination zealot, Meryl Dorey, has done is to claim this:
Court orders rape of a child. Think this is an exaggeration? Think again. This is assault without consent and with full penetration too.
There has been something I’ve been meaning to share more widely for some time, and I was only just reminded that it needed to be done sooner rather than later, when someone recommended a chiropractor, for the treatment of a baby, on the Adelaide Baby Bargains Facebook page. This person’s name and contact details popped up:
Lawrence has some fine form in the anti-vaccine community. He is linked with South Australia’s version of the anti-vaccine Australian Vaccination Network, Vaccination Information Serving Australia (VISA); run by South Australia’s version of Meryl Dorey, Kathy Scarborough.
In 2010 Lawrence was a presenter at one of Scarborough’s seminars:
And he likes to bark on about mercury, poisons, and other anti-vaccine tropes, not knowing – or not caring – about the difference between any of the mercury compounds. They’re all the same, right? From VISA, again:
He even admits how he used to advise his
marks customers about flu shot ingredients, and how to ask about them. Nuance about dosage, and why ingredients are present, is unimportant; as long as you’re scary. That’s what matters:
That last screenshot is taken from the closed group from where I gathered my evidence of chiropractors sneaking into hospitals without permission.
The main topic of this post is taken from that same closed group. Again, it is in the public interest, and in the interests of public health, that I publish it here.
On August 19 2013 ex-CAA NSW Board Member Tim Shakespeare, who sees customers at Healing Wave Chiropractic, posted this lie. The Rudd proposals would have seen no such thing as “compulsory school vaccination”:
Of course it sent these people off on one, with another ex-CAA NSW Board Member, Nimrod Weiner – and there is a very good reason these guys are ex-board members – posting a supporting lie, which is contradicted by the very link he includes:
The Bill allows exemptions for “medical contraindication, conscientious objection based on personal, philosophical, religious or medical belief.”
Greens MP Dr John Kaye said the Bill has the support of the Greens but doesn’t take away the rights of an individual to oppose immunisation.
Paul Lawrence chimed in.
Someone removes your freedom of choice. You are forced, against your will to have their fluids injected into your body. How is this different from rape?
Only one person on that whole thread questioned Lawrence on his reprehensible comment. One person. Out of all of these respected health professionals, only one person had the gumption, and integrity, and ethics, to say anything:
Removing a cash incentive is not force (I’m not denying they’re strong arming people) but to compare it to rape is probably a little insulting to rape victims Paul
And one person even liked Lawrence’s rape analogy. Who? Oliver Croke, the son of CAA National Board Member, Tony Croke. Oliver Croke is also a chiropractic student at RMIT. The profession is in great hands:
So, I go back to the recommendation on the Adelaide Baby Bargains Facebook page, and I can only say, “really?”
The guy should be de-registered. Yet, here we are, discussing his customers who are recommending him to a mother who wants a baby adjusted.
And, how is it that the Chiropractic Board of Australia will be hearing about Lawrence’s conduct for the very first time, right now?
