Support A Good Bill In Kansas!

Speak up for a good bill in the Kansas legislature that prohibits vaccine discrimination. 

SB 390 would prohibit any employer, healthcare institution, school, or individual from engaging in discrimination or implementing adverse actions based on an individual’s decision to refuse a certain vaccine or medical treatment.

This “Conscientious Right to Refuse Act” would allow individuals the right to refuse any vaccination, biologic, pharmaceutical, drug, gene editing technology, DNA- or RNA-based product.

SB 390 additionally permits a prevailing plaintiff to be eligible for damages related to any violations.

The Weston A. Price Foundation supports this bill because it allows individuals to choose whether or not to take any vaccine and prohibits entities from treating someone differently based on their vaccination status.

A suggested amendment to the bill is to repeal other dangerous laws currently in effect, such as 65-129b, which allows local health officers to isolate anyone who refuses vaccination, medical examination, treatment, or testing.  Since there are other similarly alarming statutes in place, it would be best if SB 390 also had a prevailing clause that would guarantee the new law passed through this bill would supersede any conflicts with previously passed laws. 

SB 390 was rereferred to the Senate Committee on Public Health and Welfare on 2/28/2024.

Your voice is crucial in ensuring the success of this vital legislation.  We urge you to act today! 

TAKE ACTION

Contact your Kansas State Senator and urge him or her to SUPPORT SB 390.

You can look up who represents you at: http://www.kslegislature.org/li/ (look for “find your legislator” on the left-hand side menu)

Calls are more effective than emails and only take a few minutes.  Below is a Sample Script along with additional Talking Points.  Use your own words when you call or email – a personal message is always more effective than a form message!

SAMPLE SCRIPT:

“My name is _____, and I reside in (town).  I am calling to urge Senator ______ to lend his or her support to SB 390.

This essential legislation aims to safeguard employers, students, and other individuals from vaccine discrimination.

SB 390 specifically addresses discrimination in the workplace, healthcare settings, and schools while also preventing instances such as denial of housing, goods, and services. Upholding our fundamental right to bodily autonomy, it emphasizes that individuals should not be compelled to undergo a medical treatment that may result in serious side effects.

While the concept of vaccine mandates is often justified in the name of the ‘greater good’ and protecting others, it is crucial to recognize that no one should be coerced into medical treatment solely for someone else’s benefit.

I urge Senator _____ to SUPPORT SB 390 and defend our right to make personal healthcare decisions.

TALKING POINTS for calls and emails:

Keep your email short!  Pick the 2 or 3 of these talking points – or none of them — that are most important to you, and be sure to explain why this issue matters to you personally.

Share why this is personal to you.  Do you have philosophical or religious beliefs that conflict with vaccination?  Have you or someone you know had a vaccine reaction?

No one knows in advance whom a vaccine will harm.  Each of us may respond differently as we have different medical histories, genes, epigenetics, and microbiomes.

One of the most basic human rights is that of bodily autonomy, as recognized by the Nuremberg Code.  Ethical medicine requires prior, completely voluntary, and fully informed consent.

Vaccines have no long-term studies on their safety, genotoxicity, carcinogenicity, or effect on reproduction.

Vaccines are medical procedures that carry a risk of serious injury.  Hundreds of thousands have reported an adverse reaction to vaccination to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).  The U.S. Government has paid out approximately $5.1 billion as of January 2024 to the victims of vaccine injury, per VICP Data Reports. https://www.hrsa.gov/sites/default/files/hrsa/vicp/vicp-stats-01-01-24.pdf

Vaccine manufacturers such as Pfizer, Merck, and GlaxoSmithKline have paid billions of dollars in criminal penalties and settlements for research fraud, faking drug safety studies, failing to report safety problems, bribery, kickbacks, and false advertising [1,2].  Pfizer paid $2.3 billion in 2009 alone to resolve criminal and civil allegations [3].
