In the New York state, some 26,000 healthy schoolchildren have been banned from attendance because of their vaccination status. Police have been brought in to protect.... whom? The parents protesting that their children are unwelcome and have been criminalized? The staff including teachers who HAVE NOT been UP IN ARMS over the fact that the children they serve and claim to "love" are no longer in the seats? Where are the teachers who preach anti-bullying? Who patrol recess grounds hoping to help a lonely child find a group to play tag. Where are the music teachers whose students proudly sing "America the Beautiful," and "This land is your land, this land is my land,"? Where are the principals and superintendents with their fists in the air in solidarity with the tax paying families who provide their healthy salaries???
California has 55,000 kids (and growing) who will be sitting at home instead of getting an education when their exemption repeal takes effect. Connecticut is eyeing the same repeal as New York. The goal is not health. The goal is max, unified vaccination status, regardless of parental rights, patient rights, possible injury or privacy. This land is NOT my land. I don't recognize it.
