Episode 49. Aimee Gardiner ~HPV vaccine, cervical cancer and mandates


Healthy Alternatives to Vaccinations Dr Nancy Tarlow – be sure to check out the website and the other podcasts available too. a podcast which was created due to the lack of credible information regarding holistic health care and the benefits vs the risks of vaccinations.

Aimee Gardiner, Director of Rhode Island against mandatory HPV vaccinations.

We talk about why this issue is important to her, what it has meant to the people of Rhode Island regarding having their exemptions potentially removed in regards to the HPV vaccine, the risks associated with the vaccine, and the best way to prevent cervical cancer.

We hope you have the enjoyed the awesome weather Rhode Island has had this week.

We had a Phone Flash Mob last week and if you didn’t see it or make the call, you can still participate and help make our voices heard. CALL

~ Your district senator
~Senator Miller, Chair of Health and Human Services committee for the senate. 4014618689
~Senator Nesselbush, Vice Chair of Health and Human Services Committee 4012226655 or 4017283244
~ Pick 2 other members of the Health and Human services committee (or pick all of them)

Tell your senator to support bills S2295 & S2292- Tell the Chair and committee members to pass S2292 & S2295 to the senate floor. Tell the members to read Tetyana Obukhanych PhD ‘s written statement to RI legislators and Dr Stowe’s submitted information.

Call Senator Raptakis 4013972720 and Morgan 4017440505 to thank them for submitting the bills to reverse the HPV mandate and supporting informed consent.

The most effective way to make change is to vote for your local representatives and vote at any point that you can. Be involved in the election process and determine who is going to represent your town and will they represent the values you are looking for. The state representatives and who gets the congressional seats, those votes matter significantly. This coming Tuesday the 26th is the presidential primary and the state is only having 1/3 of the polling stations open, compared to that of the general election. Please be sure to know where you need to go to vote and have your voice heard.

We would like to bring your attention to the CDC Truth and Transparency Rally happening at the CDC headquarters today. This rally is to bring attention to the CDC needing more truthful transparency. Also, Dr William Thompson that currently is working for the CDC and is a scientist, has gone on record about fraud committed by CDC intentionally. There is a social media sharing happening to bring about awareness online just as big if not bigger then on the ground. If you wish to participate, take a photo of yourself holding a sign that says “#CDCtruth Congress subpoena the #CDCwhistleblower #ShowUpDay RI” or use an avatar image with that message. Tag the post with those three hashtags. You should be able to find tons of images especially on Twitter from people everyone coming together to support our right to know the truth from the CDC.

We are looking for more volunteers to include in the core group. Graphic Design, Social Media Assistance, Writer/Blogger, Fundraiser Campaign Leads, Etc.
We need people willing to man a table on Thurs April 28th and Saturday April 30th.
If you are interested in any of these or have ideas please contact us via changehpvmandateri@gmail.com or 4014062647.

Movement Info April 12th

We as a unit have made great strides in this fight. It is not over yet. All 5 bills were heard in the house and senate committees. Now they need to get passed in committee and go to the floor for vote. Email the committee members and urge them to pass the bill through for vote on the floor. Email your representative and your senator and tell them to support the bills. Encourage your neighbors and others in your district to also email. If you already emailed a couple months ago that is terrific, please email again and keep it fresh in their minds. The RI HPV Info pack is a great resource that you can also link in your email or print and give a copy to your representative. (The emails and contacts will be listed below)


Thursday April 14th CALL

  • Your district senator
  • Senator Miller, Chair of Health and Human Services committee for the senate. 4014618689
  • Senator Nesselbush, Vice Chair of Health and Human Services Committee 4012226655 or 4017283244
  • Pick 2 other members of the Health and Human services committee (or pick all of them)

Tell your senator to support bills S2295 & S2292- Tell the Chair and committee members to pass  S2292 & S2295 to the senate floor. Tell the members to read Tetyana Obukhanych PhD ‘s written statement to RI legislators and Dr Stowe’s submitted information.

CALL Senator Raptakis 4013972720 and Morgan 4017440505 to thank them for submitting the bills to reverse the HPV mandate and supporting informed consent.

Recruit as many people to participate in the calls as you can. On Facebook you can invite your friends in the event page.


I went to New Hampshire and had a great time learning from Alan Philips and Tetyana Obukhanych PhD. Alan specializes in the law in relation to vaccine rights and exemptions, and interpreting the terminology as each state is a bit different. Tetyana specializes in the immune system and exactly how it works and how does a vaccine work within your immune system. Spoiler alert, vaccines do not help your immune system the way they are portrayed to. This doesn’t mean they don’t work at all, but not the way they are portrayed. I am working on creating a packet to share with everyone from what I learned and the pictures I took etc. It was a terrific event and well worth driving up to New Hampshire to experience.


I am looking for more volunteers to include in the core group. Graphic Design, Social Media Assistance, Writer/Blogger, Fundraiser Campaign Leads. I need people willing to man a table on Thurs April 28th and Saturday April 30th. If you are interested in any of these or have ideas please contact me via changehpvmandateri@gmail.com or 4014062647.

I look forward to hearing from you and I am grateful for each and every person’s support big or small.

Good Evening;

We have made great progress since we began and now the senate bills to remove the HPV vaccine mandate will be heard in committee in the senate lounge tomorrow March 31st.

RALLY!! 3:15p in the Rotunda at the State House

We will gather together to support the bills being heard by the senate committee and to support all the efforts by the legislators that have co signed bills to help bring us to this point. We will show the general assembly that this issue is important. That there needs to be a point to draw the line, and stop the over reach of power by the RI Dept of Health.

Teens are encouraged to come with you, this directly effects them. Gather your friends and neighbors. Car pool etc. In August the Rally was close to 100 people in Cumberland, bring that in together at the state house tomorrow March 31st.

Heath and Human Services Committee will hear the two bills S2292 & S2295

Showing up is a BIG part of this process but we know that not everyone can be at the statehouse. Call /email the committee members above right now and state your support of these bills. Write a testimony (can be just two paragraphs does not have to be tons of details &include bill #s) and bring with you 12 copies to hand in at the hearing. This is requested but not required. The hearing will begin about 4:30p on the second floor in the senate lounge.

The Facebook event was created so that you may invite your friends via social media. You can also share this email message via social media or by forwarding the email.

In other news;

Have you seen the hype yet? VaxXed?

VaxXed is a documentary about the CDC cover-up and fraud of Merck. #CDCwhistleblower came out in 2014 about lies and destruction of documents in the CDC. William Thompson kept copies himself and later came out as the whistleblower to the deception in that dept. This documentary does not discuss specifically about the HPV Vaccine Gardasil. Why is it relevant to this discussion and movement? Gardasil is made by Merck the same pharmaceutical company that is involved in this film. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) is where RI Dept of Health sites all their sources for data in choices with vaccine mandates for RI. Merck is one of the top vaccine manufacturers and all state health departments follow what the CDC states. If there is documented fraud in both we should all know about it and determine our personal level of trust from those organizations. Merck also made Vioxx that was the largest drug recall, so they are not new to being dishonest. You can have your chance for one week in New York if you want to make the drive. Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe will be shown starting this Friday for one week. Future locations will be released.

The other part of this news — once the original location and announcement was made for the film; it was censored and many tried to get the film shut down. It shows a glimpse of when there is truth and transparency that the people should know about, main stream media is silent and the big organizations will drop money to keep their secret. Main stream media is controlled by the assigning editors not the reporters. We need to ask ourselves why does the media ignore things directly relevant to the CDC or pharmaceutical companies when there is evidence they weren’t honest. When any other major manufacturer (like for a vehicle) messes up, it is all over the news ‘for our safety’, why is disease control dishonesty not news worthy ‘for our safety’ also?

Look forward to seeing you tomorrow with your signs,

State House Rally to support removing HPV vaccine mandate

Rhode Islanders against mandated HPV vaccinations (#NOHPVmandateRI) is holding a Rally to support senate bills S2292 & S2295

Thursday March 31st 2016 at 3:15p

RI State House inside Rotunda

RI citizens will be gathering together to support the senate bills S2292 & S2295 that will remove the HPV vaccine mandate from the school schedule of vaccinations for admittance to school. These bills will also require the RI Dept. of Health to hold public hearings prior to mandating any future vaccines for school students. Both bills will be heard on Mar 31st by the senate Health and Human Services Committee at the rise of the senate, in the senate lounge on 2nd floor.

#NOHPVmandateRI encourages everyone to come out and show support of these bills, and these legislators that heard our requests and took action. Teens and adults are welcome to attend the rally and the hearing to follow.

“I am glad that RI parents and citizens spoke up and reached out to their legislators. Together by many efforts combined is how change is possible. Now the bills are scheduled to be heard, and a big part of getting them passed is by showing up and supporting them. This has been a rewarding experience to be a part of, and I will continue to work to see the bills pass.” – Aimee Gardiner, Director of Rhode Islanders against mandated HPV vaccinations.

#NOHPVmandateRI strongly recommends that any parent uncomfortable with this vaccine for their children should claim a ‘religious exemption’, which can be executed via a simple form that can be downloaded from the files section of nohpvmandateri.wordpress.com.

Who’s Ready to Rally?! The time is NOW

Who’s Ready to Rally?! The time is NOW

State House Rally on Thurs March 31st! 3:15p

Senate bills S2292 and S2295 will be heard by the senate committee that evening around 4:30p the hearing will begin. The senate bills REMOVE the HPV vaccine from the mandated school schedule of vaccines for inclusion of students to public and private school. It also requires the RI Dept of Health to hold three public hearings/meetings before mandating any future vaccines. This is a GREAT step forward in what we have been working towards. WE NEED BODIES TO SHOW UP INCLUDING TEENS. We can not stress enough that even if you choose not to speak, that showing up at the statehouse sends a strong message. Bring your signs and your message, we will be heard. Let’s Do This! If you are on Facebook, here is the event link.

The public hearings will be a speed bump for the RI DOH, as when they had their meetings last summer and we made A LOT of noise they changed nothing. The terminology of this bill does not hold them accountable if the public does give push back and does not want the mandate, what they are then required to do. It simply states hearings, so they may still do as they wish. WRITE/CALL/SPEAK to your committee members that this should be amended to remove the authority of the RI DOH to make the final decision, but that you support they have public hearings.

Share this info everywhere, via social media, via email, via calling your friends. The time is NOW to show up, stand up, and speak up.

Last week was the house hearing for the bills H7475 & H7476. Both bills were held for further study and both bills had public support. We thank those that came out to the statehouse. You can watch the hearing recording here at the state website. Under 3/16/16 for the Health Education and Welfare committee. Some devices it starts at 88:51 and some it seems to register to begin at 122:00.

It’s not too late to sign the petition against the mandate.


We have the ability to offer you a one week ability to help support Rhode Islanders against mandated HPV vaccinations without just simply giving us a donation. (though we are still accepting straight donations here) Many supporters of this cause have also shared with us that they support health options and healthy ways of life. DoTerra is a product line that offers essential oils, skin care, supplements, lotions, and more. From now until April 2nd all orders placed for these products through this link; 15% of the purchase will be donated to our group. We are not endorsing these products, or stating they are superior to others, we are offering a way to help the group with items you may wish to purchase anyway.

Additional Info;

Also on March 31st in the Health and Human services committee will hear bill S2050 in relation to Naturopathic Physicians Act. Which is an alternative health option.

Don’t forget Sunday the 27th is the last day to register to vote for the presidential primaries, and you must be registered to vote for your local state representatives and senators also.

Enjoy your holiday weekend with family and friends, and we are here to help with questions or support. The online discussion group with our Director Aimee is located at this link.

Hello Rhode Islanders,

We have had some awesome weather this week, and we will be turning the clocks ahead Sunday. Spring is here and so is the time crunch to make an impact on making sure the bills pass in the statehouse to support the movement. A 5th bill that support informed consent is H7899- “All consent forms or other correspondence sent to parents and guardians with respect to vaccinations shall affirmatively notify them of the option to opt out of participation in the vaccination program.”

5 bills currently have been introduced that align with what we as a group have been advocating for. We might have news soon of a 6th bill we are working towards. What does all this mean? Does it seem like a lot to keep track of? Are you overwhelmed? First, please do not be overwhelmed. The five bills will be heard by two committees. One in the house and one in the senate. So there will be two hearings. Keeping track can be done by registering with the bill tracker service through the state website that will send you emails. For the purpose of the bills associated to what this group advocates for we will be sending emails and updating the FB page also.

Here is what you can do to make a BIG impact;

  • Email the committee members for the two committees in regards to supporting the bills and be sure to include your contact information in the email.
  • Show Up to the hearing the day it is being heard. Even if you do not speak but you show up and sign in saying you support the bill, it makes a difference.
  • Speak up at the hearing. Prepare testimony that is 2minutes or less of time to say to the committee members. If you have been injured by this vaccine or have a family member injured by this vaccine, this is a very important step in getting the awareness out there.
  • Prepare written testimony to the committee members (try not to be more then one page in length)
  • Schedule a time to meet your representative and/or senate member asap to sit one on one and express your points of view. This can leave a lasting impression that they resonate with and personally are impacted by. If your legislator is not a committee member hearing these bills, that is okay, you could request them to come to the hearing to support the bill or speak to their colleagues about it. Aimee will attend with you if you would like her to, she has already attended with other members of the group and will support you too.
  • Tell all your family and friends, share the knowledge and the information. The more people that contact and show up the bigger the impact of all combined. Hang signs, share on social media etc to get the word out.

These six items are the ways to make change. We hope you will do all six but understandably not everyone can. Do what you can do, each piece builds the puzzle.


Mark your date books!

March 16th is when the house hearings will take place. H7475, H7476   – This is the ‘rise of the house’ so you should get there by 4:15p. Bring teenagers and have them speak too. You can submit testimony even if you will be out of state, email changehpvmandateri@gmail.com and we will be sure to submit it.

March 19th Advocacy Training Workshop 10:30am in West Greenwich, this will be after the house committee hearing but before the senate committee hearing. This workshop is to help our movement but also for everyone to speak up about whatever issue speaks to them. March 20th 1:30 pm in Middletown at Middletown Library will be second day of Advocacy Training Workshop.

Be prepared for a hearing to take place March 22/23/ or 24 – we don’t know which day yet but there is a high chance one of those days S2292 & S2295 will be heard by the senate committee.

Health, Education, and Welfare committee. is the committee that will hear the house bills.

Health and Human Services committee. is the committee that will hear the senate bills.


Time crunch is on, Let’s Do This! #NOHPVmandateRI

Join Us in this fight today.


Bill to Reverse HPV vaccine Mandate!

Bill to Reverse HPV vaccine Mandate!

Great News  from #NOHPVmandateRI —

RI Senate has presented a bill S2292 that removes the HPV vaccine mandate. 

Introduced By: Senators Raptakis, Kettle, Lombardi, Morgan, and Jabour
This bill also states that future vaccines need to be transmissible in a school environment to be mandated. Please take the moment to read this bill and contact your Senate member TODAY to support this bill. (also bill S2295 Introduced by Morgan & Kettle)

This is a great success for you and all RI citizens. However, the bill has to pass to be a victory. Three bills have been introduced this session in response to all the hard work of speaking up and speaking loud. Give yourself a pat on the back, then dig your heels in, the fight just became essential. Together we were able to get legislation written and introduced, now we have to share the information EVERYWHERE and encourage EVERYONE to participate in contacting their representatives and senators to support the bills.

Testimony and speaking up at the hearings in the state house is an important part of getting the attention of those who will do the voting to pass or oppose the bills. You may only wish to say a couple sentences or you may have an unfortunate injury from this vaccine, with a full story to tell. The personal words at the hearings make a very large impact. Want to discuss this or work with us to prepare? The phone line is open for you at 401.4062647 or email changehpvmandateri@gmail.comSign the updated petition that will be printed and presented at the hearings.

The RI HPV info Pack has information for you and that you can share with your state representative. We encourage you to read it and use it to help share information for the goal to reverse the HPV vaccine mandate.


The War Chest is building and we appreciate your help. Each $15 contribution plus three friends, then $15 each plus three friends and so on. The War Chest grows and only a small donation from each person makes that possible. We will hold legislators accountable that oppose these bills.
Make your donation now, and share with three close friends or family.

Congrats on making it this far, lets take it all the way in for the win.
Lets Do This!!
