My passion is health and wellness. Those were the classes I gravitated towards in school. My least favorite classes were probably government and political science, yet here we are in 2020, and in the last 20 years, if I've learned anything..... it's this: if you become complacent, someone else will make rules and laws that benefit them and potentially harm you.
In October of this year (barely a month ago), Washington DC passed the first stage (a bill) of a law which would allow children as young as 11 years old to consent to vaccination without their parents' consent.
The bill passed almost unanimously (12:1) : the child's vaccination record won't even be sent to the parents but to the child's school.

I was shocked and angry. We don't have any children of our own, but that hasn't kept me from fighting for the health and wellness of children whom I love.
This travesty got me to digging. Washington DC is one place, and far away from Texas.... and also the hub of our government where laws often get passed quietly and without notice. That said, states have lawmaking capabilities too. Has your state already enacted laws that allow children to make health decisions? (for example: check out Idaho's law... children of any age can consent as long as they have "ordinary intelligence and awareness".... rather broad interpretation could be applied here😬) https://www.schoolhouseconnection.org/.../Statemedicallaw...
Take a look at this 7 minute video, and then lemme know what you think.... do kiddos have the where with all to make decisions such as these before they can even drive, vote, buy a gun, or serve in the military? Politics and policy making very much affect our medical (and other) freedoms and it's important that we engage in preserving our rights, especially in a time when "mandatory" seems to be a trending word.
I'm not here for the politics, I'm here for our collective health and wellness, and for the future of our country's children. Unfortunately, we cannot separate the two anymore.
Hey there....thanks for stopping by! This is me (Liz James)... an eclectic mixture of holistic (and organic) farmgirl meets pharmacist. It's a synergy that works well as I speak truths and dissect fact from fiction. If you're looking for healthier living options, you've come to the right place!
