Meeting Scheduled to Defend Parental Rights on Vaccinations

Dear Champion of Parental Rights in Connecticut,

In recent months, bills have been passed or introduced in several states, including California, New York, and North Carolina, that would remove all exemptions from the government-mandated vaccination schedule except in a few specific medical cases. This removes from parents the fundamental right to make the best informed medical decision for their individual child.

The Connecticut Coalition for Vaccine Choice was formed to defend doctors, parents, and children against the encroachment of such heavy-handed laws coming to your state. Now they would like your input and help.

The Coalition is hosting a meeting at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, January 12, in Fairfield to discuss the issue and make plans for educating legislators to make the right choices when they vote. You can see their flyer with all the details here. is not a medical organization and does not have a position on the safety or efficacy of any one vaccine or of vaccines in general. We simply stand by the timeless legal principle that parents are in the best position (until proven otherwise through due process) to make medical decisions for their child; the government is not. Laws that remove a parent’s choice in these situations violate the fundamental constitutional right of parents to direct the upbringing and care of their children.

If you are able to join our allies for this planning meeting on Tuesday, we would encourage you to do so. Thank you for standing with us to protect children by empowering parents through actions like these.
