Iowans for Informed Consent

We Believe: Every person has a right to know the full measure of risk involved for themselves or their child before a vaccine or other medical procedure is prescribed. We Believe: Every person/parent has a right to refuse vaccinations or other risky procedures based on this knowledge. We Believe: The Iowa State Congress and the US Congress have a responsibility to pass legislation allowing for “philosophical exemptions” to protect liberty and justice for all. We Believe: That those who wish to vaccinate should have access to the safest vaccines on the market, i.e., those without thimerisol (mercury). We Believe: That in the case of a national emergency, we should still retain our rights to “opt out” of unsafe and unproven vaccine mandates that would impugn our religious or philosophical rights. We base our beliefs on the liberties for which our forefathers fought, listed in the Bill of Rights.

Michigan

Michigan Opposing Mandatory Vaccines

We don’t oppose vaccines – we oppose mandatory vaccines. While the distinction may sound subtle, it points to the core of our concern – that all citizens should have the right to make their own health care choices.  Michigan is one of only 17 states which continues to support the right of parents and individuals to make their own vaccination choices, though that right is under constant attack.

CFIC helps people organize locally with other like-minded people, and provides advice on the nuts and bolts of effective advocacy.  Since 1999, CFIC has tried to be the prime clearinghouse for all aspects involving resistance to vaccine mandates in NYS, through assisting individuals with the sometimes complex hurdles to obtain a religious waiver from the school vaccine requirements, and through formation of local and regional parent groups to lobby for CFIC’s legislation in Albany.
