Autism registry

Post by Pyrrho » Sun Apr 01, 2018 8:40 pm

What could go wrong?

https://www.revisor.mn.gov/bills/text.p ... ion=latest

A bill for an act
relating to public safety; requiring employees of hotels and motels to receive
training on identifying activities associated with sex trafficking; clarifying
immunization record requirements; requiring the commissioner of health to draft
legislation establishing a statewide autism registry program
; amending Minnesota
Statutes 2016, sections 121A.15, subdivisions 3, 3a, 12, by adding a subdivision;
135A.14, subdivision 3; proposing coding for new law in Minnesota Statutes,
chapter 157; repealing Minnesota Rules, part 4604.0400.


There is much in the bill outlining restrictions on immunizations. At the end:

Sec. 7. AUTISM REGISTRY LEGISLATIVE PROPOSAL.

(a) The commissioner of health, in collaboration with the commissioner of human
services, and in consultation with stakeholders, shall draft legislation to establish a statewide
autism registry program with the purpose of estimating the prevalence, monitoring trends,
and identifying risk factors impacting the rate of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) among
children under age eight.

(b) The commissioner shall submit draft legislation required under this section to the
chairs and ranking minority members of legislative committees with jurisdiction over health
and human services and data practice by February 1, 2019.

Section 1. Minnesota Statutes 2016, section 121A.15, subdivision 3, is amended to read:
Subd. 3. Exemptions from immunizations. (a) If a person is at least seven years old
and has not been immunized against pertussis, the person must not be required to be
immunized against pertussis.
(b) If a person is at least 18 years old and has not completed a series of immunizations
against poliomyelitis, the person must not be required to be immunized against poliomyelitis.
(c) If a statement, signed by a physician, is submitted to the administrator or other person
having general control and supervision of the school or child care facility stating that an
immunization is contraindicated for medical reasons or that laboratory confirmation of the
presence of adequate immunity exists, the immunization specified in the statement need
not be required.
(d) If a notarized statement signed by the minor child's parent or guardian or by the
emancipated person is submitted to the administrator or other person having general control
and supervision of the school or child care facility stating that the person has not been
immunized as prescribed in subdivision 1 because of the conscientiously held beliefs of the
parent or guardian of the minor child or of the emancipated person, the immunizations

Autism registry?

Not only is it a bad idea on general principles, unlike other bad policies I don't even get what they hope to accomplish.

Speculation is that "they" want to correlate autism with vaccinations.

Apparently some other states already have an "autism registry":

http://nj.gov/health/fhs/autism/public/registry/

The New Jersey Autism Registry

New Jersey is one of a few states in the country that has a statewide registry of children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The Registry was created to better understand autism or ASD in New Jersey and to link families to available services and supports.


Not sure if it's a good idea or what exactly their real motives were, but this already exists at least in New Jersey and apparently "a few" other states.

It does seem to be primarily an anti-vax law, and given that they are linking vaccine policy and autism policy in one bill, I think we can guess what their true motives are.

The other question is, how likely is this bill to pass? Does it have widespread support in the legislature?

Couldn't find anything about this specific bill though and whether it's likely to pass. Did find this article though:

Minnesota vaccination activists now are seeking political allies

Leaders of the Vaccine Safety Council of Minnesota hope to persuade lawmakers to support a bill to require doctors to discuss risks with parents before vaccinating babies.

Of course, they say what they all say:
“There’s been a shift in this country,” said Jennifer Larson, a leader of the nonprofit council and an organization called Healthchoice that organized the forum. “I think it’s tough for anyone to say more information is not better.”

Larson said her group is not anti-vaccine; they believe consumers just need more upfront information about risks.


Yeah, yeah, they're never "against vaccines" they just want to "teach the controversy" right? They just want people to have "more information" so that they can make an "informed" decision.

But when people get conflicting information, it doesn't necessarily lead to better decisions. More likely people just get confused. :notsure:

Is "more information" always better? What if some of the information is wrong??
