“Where there is a risk, there must be a choice”

"If/Where there is risk, there must be choice” (or “If/Where there is a risk, there must be a choice") is a saying that has been printed on many images. The saying is associated with the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic and the debate about mandatory vaccinations (vaccinations that cause risk), but the saying began during the debate about California Senate Bill 277 (SB277) in 2015.

“Where there’s Risk there must be Choice” was posted on Twitter by ProParentRights on February 24, 2015. “If there is a risk, there must be a choice #SB277 Prohibit Mandatory Vaccinations In California” was posted on Twitter by Safika Erselcuk on March 2, 2015. “Where there is risk there MUST be #Choice #NoVAXMandates #OpposeSB277” was posted on Twitter by ProParentRights on March 15, 2015. “Where there is a risk, there must be a choice. #sb277 #opposesb277” was posted on Twitter by “54%” later on March 15, 2015. “if there is risk there must be choice” was posted on Twitter by Lisa G on April 7, 2015.


Wikipedia: California Senate Bill 277
California Senate Bill 277 (SB277) is a California law that removed personal belief as a reason for an exemption from the vaccination requirements for entry to private or public elementary or secondary schools in California, as well as day care centers. The final version of the bill was enacted by the California Legislature in 2015 (passing the State Assembly on a 46–31 vote and the California State Senate on a 24–14 vote) and was signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown on June 30, 2015.

12 May 2015, Kennebec Journal (Augusta, ME), “Vaccine bills draw heated testimony” by Joe Lawlor, pg. 1A:
Pro- and anti-vaccination groups came out in force, wearing dueling stickers. Anti-vaccine advocates wore stickers saying, “Where there is risk, there must be a choice” while those favoring vaccines displayed stickers that said, “I support healthy kids, healthy families, healthy communities.”

22 May 2015, Bangor (ME) Daily News, “Bill to fight vaccine misinformation clears legislative health panel” by Mario Moretto, pg. ?:
Opposing the measure were Reps. Deborah Sanderson of Chelsea and Richard Malaby of Hancock, as well as Sen. Eric Brakey of Auburn, all Republicans. Sen. Earle McCormick, R-West Gardiner, was absent.

“A repeated refrain we heard in the public testimony on this that really resonated and stuck with me is when there’s risk, there must be choice,” Brakey said. “This bill begins to encroach on that choice, for parents to make a choice about what goes into their children’s bodies.”

9 February 2019, The News (Abbotsford, BC), “Protesters hit streets of Washington, lawmakers weigh vaccine bill amid outbreak,” pg. ?:
Susie Corgan, with Informed Choice Washington, said after the hearing that parents who are worried about their children having adverse reactions to vaccines have a right to philosophical exemptions.

“Where there is risk, there must be choice, and there is risk with this vaccine as there is with any other medical procedure,” she said.

What You Don’t Know About Vaccines That Might Change Your Mind About The Covid Vaccine
BY LINDA CATALINA·Dec 10th 2020
(...)
I believe my immune system is good enough to fight the disease, and I don’t have trust in products that are free from liability. Lastly, as we saw in the Cutter Incident, a rushed vaccine such as the COVID-19 vaccine can have fatal consequences. So, to me, it’s simple — where there’s a risk, there must be a choice.

Myocarditis, pericarditis, fatal injuries, even death - side effects of the mRNA vaccines. And it’s being forced on ppl with mandates.  Without informed consent
