I *had* to state a religion or they wouldn't let us in to daycare. I said Lutheran b/c I panicked & that is what DH is. The daycare statute in IL is very vague and they wouldn't take us without it & we were in a desperate childcare situation. I made sure to amend their medical release form to include that we don't give permission for vaxes. I hope it doesn't come up again. If it does, I will just ask how they are certified as religious experts to determine what is "right" for a religion to believe.
But it has to be ALL.
-For a religious exemption you need to be "against the practice of vaccination". If you give your reasons to be against vaccinations as:
"I'm against vaccination because they use aborted fetal cells" - This is a philosophical reason.
"I'm against pre-marital sex and some vaxes are for sexually transmitted diseases." This is a philosophical reason.
Again, you have to be against the the practice of vaccination. For a more through explanation of why this is read the Wexler decision below.

Your blood stream is a closed system and so injecting animal products is putting them into your body, while your digestive tract is an open system and you are not necessarly putting animal products into your body they are just passing thru via your intestinal tract.
