Great Job, Massachusetts!

Great job! With your help, Senate Amendment 3030 (S. 3030) to House Bill 5034 went down to defeat when the session ended August 2 with neither the amendment nor the bill being adopted.

We alerted you to S. 3030 in the last week of July because it would strip parents with religious convictions of the right to exempt their children from vaccines on the basis of those beliefs. 

With the end of the session August 2, that measure will have to start all over again in 2023—and if it does, we will keep you posted and continue to stand against it.

We firmly believe that fit and loving parents, in consultation with their child’s pediatrician (where appropriate), are the most qualified to make decisions regarding their children’s health—not the “one-size-fits-all” lawmakers in Boston.

Thank you for making your voice heard and standing for parents in your state!
