NY Take Action: Call Albany to protect your religious exemption rights
New repeal bill expected this week

     New York, get on the phone today. All the signs indicate a coordinated attack on vaccination exemption rights. On Sunday New York Times called for the elimination of religious and secular exemptions from forced vaccination in the US. Last week the World Health Organization identified "vaccine resistance" as a top-ten threat to global health. Serious efforts are underway in Connecticut, Arizona and Maine to eliminate exemptions in those states, and we expect a new bill to repeal religious exemptions in New York this week. These things don't happen spontaneously.

     Please call your New York State Senator and Assemblymember, their names and number should appear below, and let them know politely that you expect them to protect your right to a religious exemption from vaccine mandates, and to oppose any bill that limits or eliminates religious exemptions. 

     And please click on the Take Action link to send a message to the NY Times and your state and federal legislators letting them know that you support religious exemptions and reject the self-interested fear mongering of the New York Times.

          Religious exemptions, and secular exemptions in 19 states, are as old as mandatory vaccines. Forty-seven states have them, as well most of the developed democracies progressives point to as examples of good health policy: Canada, the UK, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, Japan, etc. There is no evidence to indicate that the less than 1% of students in New York who have exemptions are any threat to public health or herd immunity. And this proposal completely tramples any conventional understanding of religious liberties guaranteed by the First Amendment.

     Since 1986 when vaccine manufacturers and physicians were relieved of any legal liability for injuries caused by their products, the number, sales and profitability of vaccines have exploded. In 1986, 24 vaccine doses were recommended for American children, today it is more than 80 doses. Nonetheless, uptake of vaccines are still at all-time highs. "Nationally, coverage with vaccines recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) for children aged 19–35 months remains high and stable,"according to the CDC's analysis of the most recent numbers, and less than 1% of all children have never received a vaccine
