This story, California vaccine exemption restriction bill SB277 faces crucial first test on Wednesday, that originated from the San Jose Mercury News is circulating on a number of news sites in California.
Democratic-led efforts to ban vaccine exemptions in Oregon and Washington state toppled one after the other last month amid fervent opposition from parents and anti-vaccine groups who say the bills would have trampled their fundamental rights to decide how to care for their own children.
Now it's California's turn to try. . . .
In the days leading up to Wednesday's hearing, the chorus of opponents has been growing louder in the offices of the nine senators on the health committee. They say they are being flooded with emails, letters and calls appealing to them to kill the bill. Among the critics expected in Sacramento this week - Robert F. Kennedy Jr., whose crusade that questions the safety of vaccines helped doom legislative efforts in Oregon.
Pan, a Sacramento Democrat, is cautiously optimistic.
"I have confidence that when my colleagues are presented with the science and the truth about why we need to stop preventable diseases and protect every student's right to a safe school, SB 277 will pass," he said.
NOTICE THE MEDIA FIXATION ON THE TERM ANTI-VACCINE.----yet they say Kennedy questions "THE SAFETY OF VACCINES." So why aren't they called VACCINE SAFETY/PARENTS RIGHTS GROUPS?
Simple, the big lie is that vaccines carry NO RISKS. Only crazy, lunatic fringe folks don't want to vaccinate their children.
And why isn't the other side called FORCED VACCINATION PROPONENTS? That's what they really are.
