vaccinesblues1 220x137 Australian Bill Allows for Sterilizations Without Parental Consent at Any Age

Following the call by ethicists for after-birth abortions and the press explosion surrounding the ‘Euthanasia Coaster‘, new legislation from Australia is now paving the way for children of any age to consent to sterilization — without parental consent. That’s right, if a psychiatrist determines that a child under the age of 18 years is ‘sufficiently mature’, they will be sterilized without any say from the parents. Again, there is no age minimum, as long as they are ‘mature‘ enough.

The legislation, known as the ‘Draft Mental Health Bill 2011′, also allows for 12-year-olds to consent to psychosurgery and electroshock. You can view the bill for yourself on the Australian Mental Health government website. Written by the Western Australia Mental Health Commission (MHC) and overseen by Mental Health Commissioner and clinical psychologist Mr Eddie Bartnik, objections can still be submitted to Australian parliamentary members in each state until March 9th.

Some main points of the bill read:

  • CHILDREN OF ANY AGE TO CONSENT TO STERILISATION: If a psychiatrist decides that a child (under 18 years) has sufficient maturity, he or she will be able to consent to sterilisation. Parental consent will not be needed. Only after the sterilisation procedure has been performed does it have to be reported and then only to the Chief Psychiatrist. [Pages: 135 & 136 of the Draft Mental Health Bill 2011]
  • 12 YEAR OLDS WILL BE ABLE TO CONSENT TO PSYCHOSURGERY: Banned in N.S.W. and the N.T., psychosurgery irreversibly damages the brain by surgery, burning or inserting electrodes. This draft bill proposes to allow a 12 year old child, if considered to be sufficiently mature by a psychiatrist, to be able to consent to psychosurgery. Once the child has consented it goes before the Mental Health Tribunal (MHT) for approval. Parental consent is also not needed for the MHT to approve the psychosurgery. [Pages: 108, 109, 110, 197,198, 199, 213]
  • 12 YEAR OLDS WILL BE ABLE TO CONSENT TO ELECTROSHOCK (ECT): Electroshock is hundreds of volts of electricity to the head. Any child aged 12 and over, whom a child and adolescent psychiatrist decides is “mature” enough, will be able to consent to electroshock. Also, once consent is given, there is no requirement for parents or anyone, including the MHT, to approve the electroshock. Electroshock should be banned. Its use on the elderly, pregnant women and children is especially destructive. [Pages: 100, 101, 103, 104, 194, 105]
Action will need to be taken to make sure the bill does not pass. Objections can be sent to the Mental Health Commission and to Australian state legislators. Feedback options come to a close on the 9th of March at 5pm, so it is important to voice your opposition today. Here are a few ways to contact the Mental Health Commission and state your objection to the bill:

    What the hell? I am way past disgusted, this is just plain stupid, barbaric, how can such decisions as these be made by a child and their psychologist without the knowledge or consent of the parent, as if any parent would consent to it. This is government insanity at its worst!!!!!

  • Anon

    I'd like to know what the UNHCR (United Nations High Commision on Human Rights) could do about this…form of eugenics?

  • gudzwabofer

    1. 'afterbirth abortions' and 'euthanasia coaster' are obviously conceptual pieces designed to promote thought and discussion when compared with mainstream/dominant views which in many cases are no less ridiculous.

    2. i'm not sure without further research how much this proposal would change current practices/law. the tragic thing is that sterilization is a commonly practiced form of darwinian eugenics in much of the world. those who think that someone with a disability can't love and have a family because they're not self sufficient or capable enough should be stripped naked and dropped in the middle of the desert to see how well they live up to their own nazi ideal.

    3. most of psychiatry is stuck in the dark ages. one day maybe they'll see the light and accept the subconscious as an ally rather than an enemy. i dropped out because most of what they teach is shallow or bullshit. lies and statistics.

You are not part of the power structure so you can get over your little ego trip when saying that we should kill or sterilize brown people or poor folks. A word to the wise.

    • Joe

      I agree entirely,have you visited the CEC website they have a new video that dissproves environmentalists central argument of Ecosystems.It's called "Ecosystems a Genocidal Fraud" and it deals with real science not that crazy Greenie stuff they push on us.Help save the PEOPLE of the Murray Darling Food Bowl from these genocidal creatures.Greentards have'nt heard from the normal folk yet and I for one am sick of these hard left Morons and their fake Science.Join the citizens Electoral Council and help in the fight agaist the radical Green Fascists.

  • Jean

    Opinions, beliefs and attitudes change with age. This is ridiculous! I know that when I was younger I didn't want kids. Now I'd love to have them. You can only make informed decisions about what you want as you experience life. If you don't experience things that would allow you to make a judgement on having children or surgery; how could anyone be expected to make life altering decisions?

    Lastly, to all of you who pride yourself on the idea that you are so progressive…

    Children are not your little mini mes, nor do you control them. They are beings you decided to bring here, who you should teach and guide, and help develop a system of values; NOT control when they don't think the way you do, or behave differently than you.

    • dissapointed aussie

      Iam horrified to know what the govenment is planning to do to these children, look at their diet, give them choices, & explain every detail honestly, they are not animals who dont have choices, WAKE UP AUSTRALIA, dont copy everyone else.

  • vegangsterARNP

    There is NOTHING wrong with this. The idea that having a baby is SO important to humans in an age where we have over 7 BILLION humans on the planet, pushing out all other species, and locking other species up for unnecessary consumption, is LUDICROUS. Grow up. There is nothing but GOODNESS about this. It is WONDERFUL. Let NOT more humans bring other humans to a place where they aren't wanted. It matters not if people get older and change their minds. They can THEN adopt! Someone said this was like "forced sterilizztion". YOU are insane, and living on another planet. With all the information out there for free to see online, from pollution to toxic air and water, to orphanges that are full to the BRIM, yee of little mind power, should be PRAISING this law. It forces NO one to get a sterilization, but PERMITS people of child rearing age to decide NEVER to add to the human over population problem, which also helps improve our society as a whole, since you can choose the following: to "maximize the number of human beings living at the lowest possible level of comfort, or we can try to optimize the quality of life for a much smaller population." That was a quote by Garret Hardin.

    • groncho

      Hey, vegansterARNP, have you sterilized yourself? What are you waiting for?

      The thing is that the sterilization is with NO CONCENT. Is a law made by the government. And YOU KNOW who are on the world's governments.

      The It have to be a choice. If not, is a dictatorship. And I thing that a little better than sterilization is EDUCATION, god damn it. Changing the way we teach our children will be a better way to stop race to the 10.000 million. Well, there are poor people that will have not any kind of education, and have a lot of childre, ok. To change that, we must change the system. In this system, the only patches you can apply are dictatorship things like this one. YOU must to picture and understand that the population growth is a system failure. So, you fight to change the system, or this problem will not been solved./

    • waitingfortheend

      You are an excellent product of brainwashing and social indoctrination. I think every "adult" promoting and applauding the idea of misleading and co-ercing children (determined to be "mature enough" by standards of those with a very clear de-population agenda) into making life long irreversible decisions of which they are not capable of coming close to comprehending should be the first and only ones in the human gene pool to happily voluteer and all should go sterilize yourselves. What's with the caps, a little mind control manipulation technique? Only those falling into the category "we the sheeple" will fall for that. This is just more legalized child abuse in an every abusive society, when those adults who are supposed to nuture and look out for the youth of society instead turn and mislead, abuse and misuse them for their own selfish purposes and misguided agenda's.

    • Troy

      I know this is getting to be cliche but it ought to be said again:

    • alkhemst

      Apart from sterilization there's also electric shock therapy and psycho surgery that can be performed without parental consent on children, which if you look into that will not make things better. What will happen is that more children will be abused, will suffer undergoing pychopathic proceedures and will be damaged as a result of all this and on top of that this will occur under the protection of law. It is hard to imagine, in a world where we are all interconnected, that the quality of life will be enhanced for anyone if this road is taken. If you see this as a valid law, you have to question yourself about what it is exactly in yourself that believes that laws protecting the desires of psychopaths can be helpful to humanity.

  • Claudia

    This is just nauseating. Why are these people creating laws making it okay for these demons to steal our children's lives away? Then they cry "child abuse" or "mentally ill" when we stand in their way and tell them exactly where they can go! Disgusting!

  • Andrea

    If they're mature enough to make a decision to be sterile maybe they should be mature enough to WEAR A CONDOM. Not to mention how can they possible have these rights when they don't even HAVE the right to have sex?? How can you decide you should be sterile when you haven't had sex yet? They can't even have sex WITH parental permission but they can become sterile without it? Seems a little ridiculous to me.

    • john

      I agree.In fact this Legislation allowing a child to sign an agreement to experience any Psychiatric treatment at all is insane.Who in their right mind would agree to experience Electric Shock,Brain Surgery,Probes inserted into their brain and mind altering psychotropic drugs?We are not talking Mental Health here quite the opposite.The dumbing down for life of anybody is so barbaric its the pits and it is pushed by Merck and Ely Lillie and the other big Pharmaceuticals.Any Politician who has said yes to this so called Mental health Bill is so uninformed as to be utterly ashamed and irresponsible beyond words.

  • Twinpinesmall

    —————[I]f a psychiatrist determines that a child under the age of 18 years is ‘sufficiently mature’, they[sic] will be sterilized without any say from the parents.————

    Wait a minute…

    If said child is "sufficiently mature," then why exactly does he need psychosurgery or electroshock therapy in the first place?

    I heard Prince William and Prince Harry say they wanted to get fixed so 'the lizard gene' would not carry in to the next generation of British royalty potential. I concur. It sounds like a fine idea. Perhaps we should catch them during their naps so they don't lose any 'quality time'.

    This 'pied piper' CFRtv rubbish has got to go. i heard a recent speech where one of the Rothschilds serious alluded to plans to produce huge amounts of dry ice and ship it to the poles to stop 'globaal warming'. And THEY want to STERILIZE US.

  • cindy

    AS far as our children go: WE PARENTS NEED TO LET OUR CHILDREN KNOW JUST HOW MANIPULATED AND DANGEROUS OUR WORLD CAN BE. All the traps, pitfalls, ponzie scheme's,

    the POISON at every turn (food, air, water, wi-fi)!

    It goes on & on, but at least if they are aware, they can try to avoid these traps. That is there best protection, as well as a loving family that truly cares about them, giving them a STRONG SENSE OF SELF!!

  • Ghost Wolf

    What I'm wondering is: When will the masses who don't want their children tortured and themselves forced into suicidal slavery going to remedy the problem by exterminating every government like roaches?

    People don't act like governments and governments intend to play "God".

    Oh well. Defecation occurs, doesn't it. And it will keep on defecating until the masses wake up and fight back. There's more of US than THEM!

  • stonehillady

    First of all, the word NAZI stands for NAtional ZIonist Party, to bad Jews didn't know that Hitler was first supported by Jews & their Bankers, they are Socialists first, bankers second & Jews last….!

    Any English speaking nation is & has been just a colony of "City of London" including USA. USA is a corporation OWNED by the Queen back in 1913 when we actually surrended back to the Monach after we sign her banks to control our money….! So, we will be subjected to the same things the Aussies will do to US.

  • Anonymous


    It also says that any child that is deemed "mentally ill" (and the list of mental illnesses is extensive these days) can be sterilised simply upon the recommendation of Family Court.

    (Page 135)

    I think anyone whose child has been assessed as having a mental illness should be very concerned about this legislation.

  • Drew from Oz

    Will you Americans quit bringing firearms into every single conversation you have about any subject.?

    Doesn't matter how many guns you have, .gov will bring more. Ruby Ridge. Waco.

    You have pistols they bring rifles. You bring assault rifles, they bring tanks and aircraft.

    They are not going to save you. Remember the bumper sticker" You can have my gun when when pry it from my cold dead fingers" in the opening scenes of Red Dawn- where the enemy soldier did just that? Think about it. Just change the army the soldier is in to Homeland Security.

    Notice, Australia does not have one of those.

    Yeah, this legislation wrong. Yes, it might get through. So what? It can be undone.

    this is just the dovetailing of green brainwashing re global warmists endgame..and eugenics to lower the worlds population IS their avowed aim

    some of us have been saying this for sooo long and being called tinfoilers etc.

    raise powwer water fuel to thin the herd via economic means.

    reduce personal and food freedoms, cant grow sell eat etc.

    in Codex removing non pharma options.

    a undernourished cold population gets ill more easily.

    so it seems do over vaxed ones.

    force unlabelled untested GMO foods via stealthly UNlabelled entry to worlds foods. man and animal.

    make everincreasing diagnosis of mental aberration a forced druggable fact.

    and start it all with the kids in kinder and onwards to ensure an upcoming biddable scared compliant next gen.

    see- its working!

    Satan has his finger in many places – "medicine" is no exception. Psychiatry is evil, it has never helped anyone. It's drugs are poison, they do not cure or cause remission but only cause new illness even death. It is now known that exercise is much better for treating depression than any pill they have. And the latest news is that schizophrenia is treatable with a certain antibiotic! The bible tells us that pharmakeia is evil. There is an explosion of information today exposing the false promises of most modern treatments as lies for profits by the pharmaceutical companies.

    The public have to stand up to these lunatics of mental health,(psychiatry) otherwise this is going to keep happening—(Department of Health show 975 people under the care of Victoria's mental health system have died unnatural, unexpected or violent deaths between 2006 and 2010.) that works out to .8 people dying every day,almost one a day.Now they want to electrocute, lobotomize, drug, sterilize, and pretty much, "kill" our kids. Come on dowwwnnnnn, YE HA, free poison, free incarceration, free gorillas, free sick diagnosis, straight jackets, needles, prison cells, free electrocutions,free lobotomies,free oppression,free sterilisations, yeh, If you want to try and make a start, it has to start with "stopping them" being able to poison people, insane, free will, with poisons that have insanity already in them,once their in them there is no way back unless they can be made to allow for a fair test to be able to prove and show that the poison is making them worse or more unwell.The only way to get the emotionally and psychologically concerned, troubled,(not necessarily "mentally ill")back to work or school and going forward again, is to stop force drugging them for the rest of their lives, they've got broken legs,do you people ( psychiatry) get it!!! not paralysis, they need a temporary crutch,and positive encouragement and counseling with a plan to help them deal with their troubles, and move forward. "Not a permanent body and mind brace". here's a petition to make a start if you want to.

    How many of the "Special" elites are lining up to have their own kids sterilize themselves? I'm guess it's only for the working class who don't have the brilliant far sight of our precious elite.
