WHAT IS SENATE BILL 104?
Senator Favola has pre-filed a bill (SB 104) for the 2020 Virginia legislative session that allows your minor child (any child under the age of 18 - that means even a 6, 8 or 10 year old!) to receive vaccinations WITHOUT your consent or knowledge. She also wants to deem your minor child an adult for the purpose of accessing or authorizing the disclosure of medical records - which means your child can keep their medical records from you.
This bill is not about whether you choose some, all or no vaccinations. This bill is solely about taking away YOUR parental rights.

STEP 1. Call Senator Favola NOW at 703-835-4845, and then email her at email@example.com
and tell her you oppose this tyrannical bill.
STEP 2. Find your legislators HERE and contact them as well.
STEP 3. Look at the section below to find out what else you can do to stop this gross government overreach.
Senator Favola believes that the government knows our children better than we do. She thinks our minor children are capable of making potentially life-altering medical decisions on their own - without our knowledge or our consent.
If our minor children do not have the maturity and understanding to make informed choices about the consumption of alcohol, the use of cigarettes, to vote or to gamble, how are they supposed to have the knowledge and wisdom to fully understand the benefits vs. risks that come with all medical procedures including vaccinations? The answer is that they simply cannot. Without that understanding, they cannot give informed consent.
JUST IMAGINE- Your child receives a vaccination without your knowledge or consent and starts having an adverse reaction. How will you be able to get them the care they need when you are missing crucial information?
Parents alone are responsible for the care of their minor children. All decisions regarding their care should be ours. The government has NO business parenting our children.
If we let them take our parental rights on this issue, what will be next?
The liberty of parents to direct the upbringing, education and care of their children is a natural right given to us by our maker. The government does not own us. The government does not own our children. We, the parents, are their guardians.
JUST IMAGINE - Your child has a reaction to a vaccination they receive without your consent or knowledge. Who will pay for their medical care? Not Senator Favola. Not the Virginia Government. You will. You "the parent" will be solely responsible even though you did not consent. Ask Senator Favola if she will personally pay your child's medical bills if they suffer an adverse reaction, because she came between you and your child.
Even though reported adverse reactions to vaccinations are uncommon, there is a risk. As evidence of this the United States Government has paid out over 4 billion dollars of taxpayer money since 1986 to those injured or killed by vaccines.
Where there is a risk, there must be a choice. That choice belongs to the parents.
Fellow Virginians, it is our moral obligation to fight tyranny. This bill is a gross overreach by our government. Let them know we will not stand for this. Act now.
