A celebration of freedom

A celebration of freedom

Today is a celebration of freedom as Independence Day. Unfortunately our congress and state house do more on an annual basis to roll back our freedoms, then any war we send our troops to fight over seas.

Today let’s celebrate the freedom we do have and remember that we still fight for rights, and like our cause to reverse the HPV mandate in RI, it is only possible with many numbers of citizens coming together to create change. Share information with family and friends as you gather together. Remind others they have a religious exemption option, and that they too can assist in fighting the mandate. Hashtag #NOHPVmandateRI is also our website www.NOHPVmandateRI.com to be easy to remember and pass along.

Thank you for everything you have done or might do or will do today. Without each person’s efforts big and small, we wouldn’t be able to accomplish our goal.

Enjoy the day and celebrations!!!

Broken Promises; Coventry School District Throws Out Students For Not Complying With The HPV Vaccine Mandate

Providence, RI- Today, Coventry Middle School sent home teen students that were not in compliance with the mandate of the HPV vaccine. The RI Dept of Health had stated on record that no students will lose class time over the HPV vaccine mandate. Rhode Islanders Against Mandated HPV Vaccinations argued that having a mandate with no intention to enforce it was reason to remove the mandate in itself. Now students are losing class time over a vaccine mandate for a virus not spread by casual contact.

“I was very angry to hear about the situation today. My daughter had recently graduated from a weekly truancy program in regards to her attendance, and I couldn’t believe they would do something for her to lose more school time. She is nervous after working so hard to be on track that this will negatively effect her attendance records again. I don’t understand how kids can get kicked out for something like that. I think it is stupid,” said Ms. Testa about the girls getting dismissed today.

According to Ms. Testa’s daugher, the girls were removed from first period class and held in the office until someone came to pick them up, not allowed to go to the bathroom either. Two other girls stated they did receive the vaccine, but the school stated they didn’t have the paperwork, and all three girls were sent home.

“When I first got the phone call of this situation, my first thought was how ironic that the first school to have a school committee to remit a resolution in support of removing the HPV vaccine from the required list of vaccines for school, was the same district to send students home due to non-compliance. Here is a prime example of why this mandate is completely unreasonable. Currently, there are two bills introduced in the house and two bills in the senate, that support parental rights and to remove the HPV vaccine mandate. Rhode Islanders against mandated HPV vaccinations calls upon the RI legislators to rise up, and pass the bills that remove this mandate and put the power of medical private choice back in the parents hands,” said Aimee Gardiner, Director of Rhode Islanders against mandated HPV vaccinations.

Senator Raptakis has reaffirmed for the second year in a row that the HPV vaccine mandate should be removed from the schedule of vaccines. His bill S0047 is one of two that will be heard by the Senate Heath & Human Services committee, the hearing has not yet been scheduled. Coventry is in Senator Raptakis’ district #33.

URGENT Mar 23rd POSTPONED

Rhode Islanders Against Mandated HPV Vaccinations has continued to rally support and to speak with legislators. Our efforts are paying off.

Sherry Roberts introduced bill H5919! Now four bills support the goals we have been working towards.

Sen. Raptakis sponsored bill S0047: This bill reverses the mandate of the HPV vaccine required for school, requires the RI Dept of Health to hold three public meetings prior to any future mandates, stipulates that mandates can only be made for disease transferrable in a classroom, and adds back the philosophical exemption option for vaccines.

POSTPONED!!!
TOMORROW THURSDAY MARCH 23RD BILL S 489 WILL BE HEARD IN COMMITTEE AT THE STATE HOUSE. 4:30P
Please come and sign in as support of the bill, you can also bring written testimony if you choose. Reply to this email and we will help you with any questions you may have.

Sen. Morgan sponsored bill S0489: This bill reverses the mandate of the HPV vaccine for school, takes away the ability to mandate any vaccines for disease not transmittable in a classroom, and requires three public meetings by RI DOH prior to any vaccine mandates.

Rep. Price sponsored bill H 5681: This bill give parents the ability to opt out of vaccination for being contrary to their beliefs not just religious belief.

The same year that it was added to the schedule of vaccines, the RI DOH received a grant for over $600,000 to market the HPV vaccine specifically. The mandate was not public knowledge until after it was already signed and added. Currently, the RI DOH is one of only two in the country that hold the power to mandate vaccinations without public input or legislation introduced for vote. The time is now to take a stand, to take the bureaucrat power away from the RI DOH, and to support the bills that respect the parent’s right to a private choice not tracked by the school department.

In this regard, we are asking you for your help. Please take action now to email your state representative and senator to support these important bills. Click on the link here to send a pre-written email instantly to your state senator and representative.
