It is time to return to first principles in the upbringing and care of Virginia's most precious asset, our children.
In Virginia, by law, parents have "the fundamental right to make decisions concerning the upbringing, education, and care of the parent's child.” (§ 1-240.1). Parents choose how to provide for their bodily needs such as food, shelter and healthcare. The state's role is to make healthcare available and accessible to its citizens, not to mandate or require any specific pharmacologic product, whether drugs or vaccines for individuals or their children.
Furthermore, each individual has a fundamental God-given human right of bodily autonomy (what is done to our bodies and those of our minor children) and the right to private, voluntary and informed medical decision making (individual freedom of choice: "My body, my choice").
In fact, individual and public health, safety, and welfare are particularly threatened by the COVID shot mandates and chilling to the point of virtual prohibition by the Commonwealth of effective, safe and inexpensive early treatment and prevention of COVID using numerous repurposed longstanding FDA-approved drugs and supplements Of course, the Executive branch, State Health Commissioner, members of the Board of Health, and VDH senior clinical scientists will deny knowledge of any of this due to their brutal censorship of all scientific viewpoints other than the WHO-NIH-FDA-CDC uni-narrative. An example is all of the above ignoring or refusing multiple invitations and requests to participate in or even attend an uncensored large public forum on October 1 about Virginia's management of COVID with Virginia physicians and medical scientists, including the inventor of the COVID "vaccine's" mRNA platform. They (you) likewise have ignored, denied or mischaracterized all adverse event and clinical trial data about the "vaccine" shared with them at their own public meetings or in private settings. And then they (you) call us "deniers."
I urge you to repeal the Chapter under review and not approve/mandate/require the COVID shot for our school children.
