America Taking Action Against the Autism Epidemic
From our friends at Health Choice CT:
Please come to Hartford tomorrow, Thursday, January 17, to help stop House Bill HB5277, a bill that was just introduced to eliminate our religious exemption from vaccines. We have been awaiting this bill since the Democrats took control of the State Senate in the November election, which gave them control of all the branches of the state government.
If you have a religious exemption you MUST get active if you want to keep it. California ignored all the warnings signs for years and lost their religious exemptions in 2015. Don't let that happen in Connecticut. If this bill passes your options will probably be to leave Connecticut, home school your children, or vaccinate.
Please join us tomorrow at:
Legislative Office Building (LOB),
300 Capitol Ave, Hartford, from 10am-4pm
There are parking garages behind the LOB that are free. We are also planning on another advocacy day on Tuesday, February 5.
The bill was introduced by Representative Daniel Fox from Stamford. Please call Rep. Fox and POLITELY tell him you are opposed to this bill. His phone number is 860-240-8585 and his aide is Andrea.
Please do NOT discuss the safety and/or efficacy of vaccines, but rather on the topic of religious freedom. Since he is a Democrat, my body my choice is also a valid argument.
And please click on the Take Action link to send an email to your State Senator and Representative, with a copy going to Rep. Fox.
You can see the bill here: HB-5277 AN ACT CONCERNING CHANGES TO THE REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENTS TO QUALIFY FOR THE TEMPORARY WAIVER FOR REQUIRED IMMUNIZATIONS. https://www.cga.ct.gov/2019/TOB/h/pdf/2019HB-05277-R00-HB....
If you have not yet done so, please join the Health Choice CT activists group as all the information will be shared there. That group can be found HERE. To expedite your entrance to that group, please read ALL of the group rules AND answer ALL of the group questions in their entirety. Failure to do ALL that is required within 24 hours will result in a board member declining your request to join. This group is meant for ACTIVISTS ONLY!
As always, we ask that you establish a relationship with both your Representative and Senator and that you speak with him/her about supporting these bills. If you don't know who your legislators are, you can find them here: https://www.cga.ct.gov/asp/menu/cgafindleg.asp
You don't have to come for the entire time on any given day, but this will give you an opportunity to educate your legislators and see how everything flows at the Capitol, which can be daunting for some. HCCT will have a table set up in the concourse between the Capitol and the (LOB) to provide information to legislators, aides and visitors. HCCT board members will be there, so this will be a great time to set up a meeting with your legislators and have a board member accompany you.
We need and appreciate your support! All donations are tax deductible as we are 501c-3. Please let us know if you'd like a receipt for your donation.
