July 28, 2021 (Children’s Health Defense) – A New Jersey attorney last week accused Rutgers university officials of sending “false and misleading” communications to students about the university’s COVID-19 vaccine policy.

In a letter to Jay Hoffman, Rutgers’ senior vice president and general counsel, attorney Julio C. Gomez asked Hoffman to investigate the misleading communications and direct university officials to retract them.

Gomez, a graduate of Rutgers and Rutgers Law School, told Hoffman he wrote the letter on behalf of his two nieces and “about a dozen” other students currently enrolled at the university.

In his letter, Gomez alleged the university is misleading students about the deadline for complying with the vaccine mandate. He refers to Rutgers University Policy 10.3.14, Interim COVID-19 Immunization Record Requirement for Students, which states students are required to present evidence of COVID-19 immunization “at least 2 weeks prior to coming onto campus for any reason, including but not limited to moving into a residence hall, attending campus classes, and/or entering any campus building.”

The letter stated:

“However, students are being told in electronic and verbal communications that they must submit such evidence by the arbitrary deadline of August 1, 2021 … Since students are not scheduled to move into residence halls until August 25th and classes do not resume until September 1st, according to your Policy, students have between August 11th and August 18th to submit their evidence (or exemption requests) to Rutgers, unless they must report to campus earlier. Therefore, any communications to students expressing a university wide August 1st deadline is inconsistent with the Policy, misleading, and intended to annoy and harass students by shortening their time to comply.”

Gomez called out the university over a July 20 email blast threatening students with sanctions that fall outside the bounds of the official policy. Sanctions outlined in the email included cutting off access to students’ university email accounts and suspension of academic work if they fail to upload “completed immunization documents” by Aug. 1.

Gomez wrote:

“This message is misleading because the Policy does not authorize the sanctions threatened, and this message deliberately omits any reference to a student’s right to submit medical and religious exemption requests, thereby giving the false impression that such requests are no longer valid or able to be considered. This message also misstates the compliance deadline. Lastly, this message misrepresents a student’s right to an exemption under the Policy if their ‘entire course of study is … fully-remote.’”

Gomez said a July 21 email blast to students “compounded the confusion” by telling students they were already not compliant with the vaccine policy “even though the deadline for compliance is still, at least, more than one week away.”

In 2019, LifePetitions launched a similar petition on behalf of Jeff Younger (the father) and his son James, asking for support and for the Texas state authorities to intervene in a unbelievable case in which the Dallas courts keep flip-flopping over which parent has parental rights and, ultimately, whether or not James must be forced to live as a girl and suffer the trauma of so-called gender "transitioning," as his mom believes he is a girl.

Incredibly, we now seem to be back at square one.

Jeff Younger currently has a gag order put on him, which prohibits him to speak out in defense of his son. But, because he has recently decided to ignore that order, to save his son from irreversible surgery, this brave Dad now faces possible arrest.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which does two things: 1) Supports Jeff Younger (again, the Dad) in his fight to save his son, James, from so-called gender "transitioning;" and, 2) Calls on Texas' Attorney General to intervene in this case and quash the gag order against Mr. Younger.

CLICK HERE to WATCH the latest LifeSite interview with Jeff Younger. Hear about the latest developments with his son, as well as the real dangers of gender reassignment surgery and other “transititioning” methods.

Currently, even though he shares 50/50 parental rights to James, which has allowed him to stop the chemical castration of his son, Jeff’s ex-wife recently sued to have full parental rights and to "give her sole medical and psychological decision making."

Jeff is also being threatened with jail time from the gag order, which he believes was intentionally done to stop him from helping pass legislation in Texas to ban sex-change surgeries for minors.

Jeff says that the gag order "prohibits me from speaking on all manner of political topics. And I’m not even allowed to tell you in that gag order whether my son’s a boy or girl."

But Jeff is speaking out, no matter what, because of the real danger that his son is in if he undergoes "transition" surgery.

Indeed, so-called gender "transitions" present many unsafe effects, some desired, some undesired, though all dangerous for one's physical and mental health.

Puberty-blocking drugs and cross-sex hormones have not been proven safe. For example, the FDA has NOT approved Lupron and GnRH analogues for use in blocking puberty.

Risks associated with these pharmaceuticals include: low bone density, high blood pressure, weight gain, abnormal glucose tolerance, breast cancer, liver disease, thrombosis, and cardiovascular disease.

And, additional risks and potential harms include: 

For Males: Stunting of penile and testicular growth, sexual dysfunction, prevention of spermatogenesis, and disruption of normal brain and bone development.

For Females: A menopause-like state, blockade of normal breast development, decreased blood flow to vagina and vulva, sexual dysfunction, thinning of vaginal epithelium, vaginal atrophy, prevention of menses/ovulation, and disruption of normal brain and bone development.

In other words, these medications can sterilize and cause medical harm to vulnerable, confused children.

And, the stunning part about this: studies show that 85% of gender confused children eventually become comfortable with the sex of their bodies.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which supports Jeff Younger, a Texas Dad, who is fighting to prevent his son, James, from being "turned into a girl." At the same time, we appeal to Texas State Attorney General, to intervene in this case and quash the gag order against Jeff.

Thank you!

FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THE DANGERS OF PUSHING GENDER IDEOLOGY ON CHILDREN:

Many eminent psychiatrists are now speaking against the faulty notion that sex is fluid and a matter of choice. In particular, they are concerned about the welfare of children and young people in this regard.

Dr Paul McHugh, former psychiatrist-in-chief at Johns Hopkins University, who has researched the occurrence of gender dysphoria for 40 years, has stated that the notion of gender fluidity "is doing much damage to families, adolescents, and children and should be confronted as an opinion without biological foundation wherever it emerges". [See more below.]

And, the American College of Pediatricians (ACP) is definite about the promotion of transgenderism as being harmful public policy:

"Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: 'XY' and 'XX' are genetic markers of health – not genetic markers of a disorder. The norm for human design is to be conceived, either male or female…Conditioning children into believing that a lifetime of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex is normal and healthful is child abuse. Endorsing gender discordance as normal via public education and legal policies will confuse children and parents…” [Read more below.]

The letter stated:

“Students (some of whom are taking summer classes and need access to Rutgers computer applications now) were further confused and alarmed by this communication which appears to have been purposely intended to coerce, harass and intimidate.”

Gomez said the communications are “evidence that Rutgers is engaged in a callous campaign to arbitrarily and capriciously deviate from its own Policy in its communications with the student body in order to coerce and intimidate students to vaccinate against their will without regard for their rights under the Policy or under the law.”

Gomez explained:

“My clients certainly, and likely most students, are wrestling with a potentially life-altering decision to take vaccines that are emergency-use authorized (EUA) only and capable of inducing anaphylaxisblood clot disorders, myocarditis and pericarditis (heart inflammation), Bell’s PalsyGuillain-Barré Syndrome and any number of other adverse reactions.”

In March, Children’s Health Defense Chairman Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. wrote to Rutgers President Jonathan Holloway to remind university officials that federal law prohibits mandating EUA products, after the university announced its COVID vaccine policy.

In his letter to Holloway, Kennedy wrote:

“Federal law 21 U.S.C. § 360bbb-3(e)(1)(A)(ii)(III) requires that the person to whom an EUA vaccine is administered be advised, ‘of the option to accept or refuse administration of the product, of the consequences, if any, of refusing administration of the product, and of the alternatives to the product that are available and of their benefits and risks’.”

The reason for the right of refusal stems from the fact that EUA products are by definition experimental.

“Under the Nuremberg Code, no one may be coerced to participate in a medical experiment. Consent of the individual is ‘absolutely essential,’” Kennedy wrote.
