This ban violates freedom to practice one’s faith/religion


A ban of an optional therapy that coincides with a family’s/person’s tenets of faith is unconstitutional and violates freedom of religion.  To make it illegal for someone to follow ones faith and to select their means of finding wellbeing imposes communist like tyranny on Virginia’s citizens.   

Under Virginia law, parents have the fundamental right to make decisions regarding the upbringing, education and care of their children.  Parents are closest to their children’s challenges and they are in the best position to identify solutions and to make healthcare decisions involving the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing of their children.  This is unconstitutional government overreach.  My family and I are strongly opposed to this proposed ban!
