From Stand for Health Freedom:
“We wanted to provide an update on the D.C. minor consent bill and thank you for your advocacy. Despite an outpouring of opposition by concerned individuals across the nation, bill B23-0171 — a measure making it possible for 11 year olds to be vaccinated behind their parents backs — became D.C. law on December 23, 2020.
Tens of thousands of emails, calls and tweets were sent to D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser urging her to veto the bill, which was passed by the D.C. Council. The mayor took no action, so the bill became law after her review time expired.
Before B23-0171 goes into effect, it must undergo a 30-day congressional review period per the District of Columbia Home Rule Act. The act makes it possible for Congress to overturn the law, but it has only been successful a handful of times in history. Stand for Health Freedom, alongside other allies, including ParentalRights.org and the National Vaccine Information Center, will keep you informed on when and how to make sure your federal lawmakers know this is the perfect time to utilize the act and overturn this egregious law. In addition to putting children at risk of physical harm, the bill attempts to erode the parent-child relationship and destroy the sanctity of the family unit by encouraging kids to keep secrets from their parents. It also violates several federal laws.
Although experts have called the bill “racist” and “a crime against the children of Washington, D.C.,” there is a distinct possibility that B23-0171 will survive congressional review, setting precedent for other states to follow. With basic human rights, constitutional rights and parental rights under attack, your advocacy is needed now more than ever.
2021 will provide a clear opportunity to talk about health freedom issues, grow the number of people committed to taking a stand, and educate people in positions of influence. (Please check out our new blog and video on how to talk to your legislators here.) We’re urging every advocate to invite ten friends to stand for health freedom. This will allow us to be even more successful at holding the government accountable. By growing our voting bloc tenfold, we will continue to activate the silent majority and our voice will become even more powerful.
Thank you for everything you’ve done to stand for health freedom this past year. We truly appreciate your time, your dedication and your generosity.
All our best for a happy and healthy new year.”
