NJ Vaccination Bill

November 12, 2012

The NJ Senate is currently considering a bill to reduce individual religious freedom in the state in order to better force compliance from people with religious objections to vaccinations.

There is no urgent health risk pushing this, and vaccines have never been proven safe, but someone is pushing this ahead.

Just last month the the NJ Senate released a false date for their vote to advance the bill to the Senate, avoiding a house full of protestors. They voted yes, and bill S1759 moved forward.

In response to our phone calls and petitions, the bill was modified slightly to require no annual vaccination counseling and no doctor's signature. 

Now the NJ Senate has delayed its vote, but as we saw with the Health Committee, they can schedule it and quickly vote on it before word can spread.

This bill is deeply flawed legally and ignores the reason many people are searching for ways to opt out of the short-sighted mass vaccination plan of the State and Pharma industry.

We believe this foolish bill moves into very dangerous ground, and survives only by the enormous ignorance of legislators that rely on the Pharma companies that sell the vaccines for their information.

Why do so few legislators understand science?

In this bill, the State of NJ would set itself up to decide whose religious beliefs are sufficiently sincere and valid.

WHAT? In America?

At no time should the state ever be deciding whether an individual’s religious beliefs are acceptable or sufficiently sincere. This is a dangerous path is forbidden by the first amendment, but that does not seem to bother the legislators.  

Is this what they must resort to, in the face of educated people deciding the state vaccination policy is so badly done that people are abandoning it?

Help us stop this bill.

In New Jersey vaccinations are required more often than any other state, over forty at last count, and rising.

Perhaps you have read that some vaccinations might cause lasting harm to children? Possibilities of reduced immune abilities, harsh allergies, ADD, autism, or asthma?

Even Donald Trump is voicing concern about a link between autism and vaccinations.

Parents have been losing faith in vaccination at a rapid rate. The response of the state has been to force compliance without examining the issues.

Previous History:
In 2008  the NJ House Health Committee (not the same as the Senate committee) held a hearing on a bill to allow a philosophical exemption to allow any parent to shield their children from vaccination based on only a philosphical objection. The bill was never sent on for a vote. The committee, headed by Sen. Herb Conway, did not even allow Dr. Deborah Ginsburg, who was waiting, to speak as an expert witness during the testimony time, restricting her to only 120 seconds to make comments. Not much time to even begin presenting a clear point of view on a complex medical issue.

The text of the bill is here. For more information about NJ vaccination hearings and all the issues, go to the website for Vaccine Choice.
