URGENT- Oregon bill to end religious exemption--- X-posted

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

Hey parents, this bill is getting voted on TOMORROW, May 15th. 

 

http://www.leg.state.or.us/13reg/measures/sb0100.dir/sb0132.intro.html

 

It's concerning school children.  They are voting on whether parents can have religious exemptions.  If this passes you will need a doctor's note to decline vaccines for school.

 

Here's a Facebook page for information:

Please email and call your Oregon state senators and tell them that parents deserve a choice in their child's healthcare.

 

Link to contact information:

Again, this is getting voted on tomorrow.  Please support choice!

 

 

UPDATE: Senate has moved SB132 from today until next Weds., May 22nd. More time to call and meet with your senators!

Attention OREGONIANS! FYI - Committee and Minority Reports for SB 132 in Oregon Senate moved to be considered on Tuesday May 28th because several members weren’t there today and they requested to be there for the discussion. KEEP UP THE PRESSURE...

Has this been posted in the tribe area too? I am trying to round up as many people as I can to call and email our senators. Glad we got another delay. This is unfortunately very under the radar. do you think I should post something up on the occupy Portland fb page?

No, it hasn't.  Would you be willing to do that for me?

This is horrible. Even if it passes this will be overturned by the supreme court. This is a blatant violation of the first amendment.

I thought liberals were supposed to be all about choice? Where is the ACLU on this issue or do they only stand up for atheists now?

Politicians and non-profits both have their donors. Some days, I wonder if anybody is "all about" anything. eyesroll.gif

Could anyone tell me about this whole watch-a-video thing? Did they strike that part and, if so, did they replace it with anything?

So many of us don't trust peds anymore. By using the coercive arm of the state to force parents into their exam rooms, how on earth do they expect to rebuild any trust?

I'm hoping to move back to Portland and i am so surprised to hear about this bill passing in the senate! I'm a bit worried now to return. Does anyone have any thoughts about whether they think this will pass in the house? What is the general climate among people in portland about vaccinating? Is it difficult for your child to go to school if they arent vaccinated? Thank you!

It's going to the House tomorrow.  From what I've heard it will probably pass there.

 

If at all possible please go to the House Rules hearing tomorrow, Weds., June 12 at 3pm, Room HR E.  Let them know what we want!

To add, if this was really about educating then they would require all parents to take the class.  Since it's only the parents that want to be exempt that makes it a punishment.  shake.gif

not only that but it reeks of discrimmination.....one group is being singled out for 'education'..does that education include vaccine ingredients for those who's religious beliefs prevent them from taking part of any animal/human  sacrifice, aka bovine, and pork  and fetal byproducts in the vaccines?  I seriously doubt it.   

if anything, they oughta be showing the movie, 'The Greater Good' to parents who are vaxing.
