California's Dictator-in-Chief Jerry Brown Just Took Away Parental Rights

California Governor Jerry Brown has been on a rampage this month passing controversial bills that on the surface may seem to be about protecting public health, but in reality are chipping away at Californians' health freedoms. 

It appears he is trying to earn the award for "Most Dangerous Politician in the Country."

The three bills Governor Brown has signed (or vetoed) are the following:

A bill banning anyone under age 18 from using tanning beds (SB 746). The legislation is designed to "improve the health and well-being of Californians," but this statement is based on the seriously flawed assumption that tanning beds are contributing to the rising epidemic of skin cancer.
A bill that will permit children as young as 12 years to be vaccinated with sexually transmitted disease vaccines like Gardasil, without parental knowledge or parental consent (AB 499). If you live in California, school or medical personnel will be allowed to vaccinate your child against an STD without your ever knowing it.
Governor Brown vetoed a bill that would have required California physicians to inform you when a mammography revealed you have dense breast tissue (SB 791). Women with dense breast tissue have a higher risk of breast cancer, including the most aggressive kind.
All three of these decisions reflect, unfortunately, the Governor's dangerous and misguided stance on health issues, to say nothing of his lack of respect for Californians' freedom of choice about their healthcare. Let's take a look at each of these controversial bills, one at a time.
