I just received a denial of my exemption form today. I did not want to make a statement that would be against our true beliefs. Neither I nor my children have ever been immunized. I stated on the form "I do not trust the safety of vaccines and believe that the introduction of foreign substances into the bloodstream is a misinformed attempt to thwart the intelligence of nature."
At this point I realize that I should have considered another statement that might have had better success being approved but I feel that conscientious objection is as valid a reason as religious beliefs. Now however, I need to respond in a way that I know will work. I'm not going to be bullied into doing something that I feel may have disastrous effects on my child. We are homeschooling my son but my daughter is enjoying and doing well in our small local school, I would hate to have to withdraw her for something so silly.
The law does call for an exemption based on "deeply held personal beliefs" and conscientious objection. I'm no lawyer, but your statement could be framed more in this context, such as "My deeply held personal beliefs conscientiously object to the injection of a foreign substance into my bloodstream or the bloodstream of my children." I would leave out the opinion and just focus on what you believe in as simple and yet as vague a way as possible. Use the words from the law. Good luck!
