The Pennsylvania Press Conference in support of HB286, The Informed Consent Protection Act, is scheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday, April 30, 2019 in Harrisburg, PA. Details below.
State Senator Dallas Heard pleads with fellow committee members after they voted down EVERY sensible amendment that HB 3063 crosses the line and "truly is the beginning of the death of freedom" in a work session for the Joint Ways and Means Subcommittee on Human Services on Wednesday, April 24, 2019. This heartfelt and honest outpuring should be seen as a call for all to be reminded for what those who came before us—including Heard's own grandfather during WWII—have fought so hard for us to have and maintain: personal liberties and unalienable rights without coercion. Where there is risk, there must be choice!
Physicians for Informed Consent (PIC) members Dr. Edmond Sarraf (pediatrics), Dr. Shira Miller (internal medicine), Dr. Melanie Gisler (family medicine), Dr. Lionel Lee (emergency medicine), and Dr. Charles Penick (family medicine) speak out to help children at-risk of vaccine injuries keep their medical exemptions. PIC educational materials were delivered to all 120 legislators, including those on the Senate Committee on Health who will be voting on SB276 at the hearing on April 24, 2019.
Physician Groups Opposing SB276 are:

Divided House passes bill to end most exemptions to school vaccine requirements
by Scott Thistle, Press Herald, 4/23/19
"The Maine House on Tuesday approved a bill that removes religious and philosophical exemptions for school vaccination requirements. The 78-59 vote was mostly along party lines.
The measure, which was largely opposed by Republicans, would require all children attending Maine schools to have received a mandatory series of vaccinations aimed at protecting against several preventable diseases. The bill also removes the same exemptions for health care workers and daycare providers." Read more.

Voting along party lines, the WA House of Representatives today voted to concur on EHB 1638, which the Senate had stripped of amendments protective to consumers.
The final step will be the Governor signing the bill into law, thereby officially removing the parental right to use a personal exemption to opt out of Merck's MMR II product, which is currently on federal trial for fraud, which pushes measles and mumps out of childhood, which is creating an ever-growing population of fully-vaccinated measles-susceptible adults, which comes with risk of injury and death.
Representatives Schmick, Kraft, Caldier, and Shea voiced strong objection to concurrence and to the bill itself.
Parents should know that the bill does not remove the personal-religious exemption or the church-affiliation exemption -- as Representative Harris, the sponsor of the bill, states in the concurrence vote in this linked recording.
ANYONE may use the personal-religious exemption as it is protected by the constitution which protects your right to religious freedom. You need not belong to any church. Your religion is YOURS, personal, private, sacred. Let no one, and no legislator take your right to religious freedom away from you -- as many have promised to do next year.
