Congressman Blasts FDA Adviser for Suggesting Kids Should Serve as Guinea Pigs for Vax
Rep. Greg Murphy (R-NC) blasted the FDA’s adviser for saying that kids should be used as guinea pigs for the coronavirus vaccine.
Murphy said that FDA Adviser Eric Rubin’s obscene suggestion is “literally the most dangerous statement I’ve ever heard in medicine.”
Murphy, who is also a doctor, was sickened by Rubin who said, “We’re never going to learn about how safe this vaccine is unless we start giving it. That’s just the way it goes. That’s how we found out about rare complications of other vaccines, like the rotavirus vaccine.”
But the congressman could not believe the ethical lapses in the adviser’s comments.
“That is literally the most dangerous statement I’ve ever heard in medicine,” Murphy said during an appearance on NTD’s “Capitol Report.”
“How’s that going to sit with the average mom, the average parent that cares about their child? That they want their child experimented on?” he said.
Murphy says there is no public health reason for children to take these shots considering the facts on COVID-19 and how it spreads.
“The vaccines that we have for children are measles, mumps, rubella, those things that we give kids, we have to have them before they go to school. And I agree with that, that’s fine. But the problem is, those are childhood diseases. COVID is not a childhood disease. It can affect children, but its lethality rate is infinitesimal compared to what it is in adults,” Murphy said.
“I just don’t understand why it’s being pushed on kids so much,” he added, speculating about a potential federal mandate for vaccines for kids to be able to attend public schools. “We don’t mandate that kids get the flu vaccine to go to school. We don’t mandate that kids have the HPV vaccine. So I just don’t understand the biology and the virology for this.”
