Written evidence from Mrs Helen Kimball-Brooke (COV0062)
I am a 72-year-old UK citizen who chooses to use natural medicines and am proud of my very good health. I submit the comments below because freedom, human rights and civil liberties are currently at stake in this country.
The UK has always been a haven of freedom of choice with respect to medical procedures (except in 1853 when the smallpox vaccine was mandated, resulting in many tens of thousands of deaths and protest demonstrations until the mandate was finally repealed, at which point both incidence of small pox and number of deaths plummeted).
The threat of mandatory vaccination here is however growing daily as a result of Covid-19.
In August 1947, in response to the criminal behaviour of the Nazis during and leading up to WW2, a code of conduct called the Nuremberg Code was adopted:
The ten points of the code are given in the section of the verdict entitled "Permissible Medical Experiments":
- The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.
- The experiment should be such as to yield fruitful results for the good of society, unprocurable by other methods or means of study, and not random and unnecessary in nature.
- The experiment should be so designed and based on the results of animal experimentation and a knowledge of the natural history of the disease or other problem under study that the anticipated results will justify the performance of the experiment.
- The experiment should be so conducted as to avoid all unnecessary physical and mental suffering and injury.
- No experiment should be conducted where there is an a priori reason to believe that death or disabling injury will occur; except, perhaps, in those experiments where the experimental physicians also serve as subjects.
- The degree of risk to be taken should never exceed that determined by the humanitarian importance of the problem to be solved by the experiment.
- Proper preparations should be made and adequate facilities provided to protect the experimental subject against even remote possibilities of injury, disability, or death.
- The experiment should be conducted only by scientifically qualified persons. The highest degree of skill and care should be required through all stages of the experiment of those who conduct or engage in the experiment.
- During the course of the experiment the human subject should be at liberty to bring the experiment to an end if he has reached the physical or mental state where continuation of the experiment seems to him to be impossible.
- During the course of the experiment the scientist in charge must be prepared to terminate the experiment at any stage, if he has probable cause to believe, in the exercise of the good faith, superior skill and careful judgment required of him that a continuation of the experiment is likely to result in injury, disability, or death to the experimental subject.
In addition, any involuntary or enforced medical treatment is also a breach of:
The UK has signed all of these documents.
- The Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union states clearly: ‘Everyone has the right to respect for his or her physical and mental integrity’. It also states: ‘Free and informed consent must be respected in the fields of medicine and biology’ and lastly: ‘The prohibition of eugenic practices and of making the human body and its parts as such a source of financial gain must be respected’.
The European Council’s Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Dignity of the Human Being with regard to the Application of Biology and Medicine states clearly: ‘The interests and welfare of the human being shall prevail over the sole interest of society or science’. It also states: ‘An intervention in the health field may only be carried out after the person concerned has given free and informed consent to it. This person shall beforehand be given appropriate information as to the purpose and nature of the intervention as well as on its consequences and risks. The person concerned may freely withdraw consent at any time.’
- The European Charter of Patients’ Rights states clearly: ‘Every individual has the right of access to all information that might enable him or her to actively participate in the decisions regarding his or her health; this information is a prerequisite for any procedure and treatment, including the participation in scientific research (article 4 – Right to Consent)’. It also states: ‘Each individual has the right to freely choose from among different treatment procedures and providers on the basis of adequate information (article 5 – Right to Free Choice)’ and also ‘Each individual has the right to be free from harm caused by the poor functioning of health services, medical malpractice and errors, and the right of access to health services and treatments that meet high safety standards (article 9 – Right to Safety)’.
- The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights states clearly: ‘Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes… freedom … to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance’.
There is compelling evidence to show that vaccinations carry many risks to health. This can even be gathered from the product information leaflet that comes with each vaccine and the compensations paid out to victims of vaccinations (as of 2018 in the UK, a total of £73,000,000 had been paid out to 950 victims, 60% of whose injury was proven to be vaccine-induced). These risks define vaccination as an experiment in the pursuit of a risk-free vaccine. Where there is risk, the Nuremberg Code and all other relevant human rights documents apply and there must be choice. It would clearly be a human rights crime if vaccination were to be imposed upon any UK citizen or resident and their children against their will.
I would like to draw attention to the 10th point of the Nuremberg Code specifically. If a vaccine’s product information leaflet states that death is a risk, it is a demonstrable crime for scientists to have continued with this experiment at all. The Hippocratic Oath states: First do no harm. The precautionary principle must apply.
I will defend the right not to take part in this experiment until I die.
In addition, many very powerful traditional and alternative forms of medicine (nutritional supplements, intravenous vitamin C, Traditional Chinese Herbs, Homeopathy and others) have been used successfully in other countries against Covid-19 but have been discarded and brushed aside as useless in the UK. This is nothing short of scandalous and has only prolonged the lockdown, devastated the economy and caused countless deaths.
