Lawmakers, Doctors, Attorneys and Oregon Public Oppose Secretive Bill to Force All Vaccines on Oregon Children
Oregon Bill HB 3063 proposes to exclude children from school if they are missing just one vaccination. It strips Oregonians of religious and philosophical freedom when it comes to vaccines and abolishes all but the medical exemption (ME). In Oregon most doctors are unwilling to write medical exemptions because they must be approved by the Oregon Health Authority (OHA), and they have one of the most restrictive set of rules for MEs in the country. Science journalist and book author Jennifer Margulis, PhD, Dr. James Lyons-Weiler, PhD, a biochemist who has published over 100 peer-reviewed papers, and Dr. Paul Thomas, MD, a pediatrician with over 15,000 children in his practice, and many others will be gathering in Salem, Oregon at a “Rally for Rights” to oppose the bill on April 23, 2019. Oregon State Senator Dennis Linthicum issued a press release stating that "House Bill 3063 is hovering in the Ways and Means Committee and is being tinkered with behind the scene by a group of lawmakers attempting to abolish consent in medicine." Oregon State Senator Kim Thatcher also issued a press release this week opposing the bill, and proposing 28 amendments to the bill to "dismantle the false narrative promoted by proponents of forcible injections." One of her amendments calls for all lawmakers who vote for HB 3063 to have "their immediate family members administered to them the bill’s mandated vaccines. Vaccination protocol shall begin within 30 days of the passage of the bill and adhere to the full schedule required for children under the bill."
