New Hampshire Jan. 28 NH Conscientious Belief Exemption Hearing
By Dawn Richardson, NVIC Director of State Advocacy
January 24, 2010
The New Hampshire Coalition for Vaccine Choice (www.vacchoiceNH.org) led by NVIC members Eileen Landies and Melanie Streeter will be participating in a public hearing on Jan. 28, 2010 in Concord, New Hampshire on proposed legislation for conscientious belief exemption to vaccination (HB 1555). They need the support of everyone who wants to help secure the right to make informed, voluntary vaccine decisions in New Hampshire.
A fundamental parent right
One of the most fundamental and important parental rights is for parents to have the final say over what drugs and vaccines are put into their child's body. Whether you chose to consent to your child receiving a particular vaccine or not, the important thing is that it is ultimately your decision and not the decision of a government health or school official or anyone else.
One Size Does Not Fit All
Unfortunately, there are still states that make receiving an education contingent upon a child being injected with dozens of CDC recommended and government mandated vaccines. The problem with this is that every child is different and every vaccine is different: one size does not fit all. Ensuring that all states have informed consent protections in their laws in the form of strong medical, religious and conscientious belief exemptions is the only way to protect our freedom to make voluntary health care decisions, including voluntary decisions about vaccination.
