Back in April, the bureaucrats of New York State decided that it’s within their jurisdictional purview to eliminate the right of parents to opt their children out of mandatory vaccinations for religious reasons. But Robert F. Kennedy Jr. of Children’s Health Defense is having none of it.
According to reports, Kennedy and his legal team are planning to file a series of lawsuits against the Empire State for violating the religious liberties of state residents who oppose vaccines as a matter of personal faith.
In a recent social media post, Rita Palma, a New York State resident who runs the My Kids, My Choice website, made a formal announcement about these lawsuits. In it, she warned that, despite being “home to the strongest legal talents in our movement” – this movement referring to folks who support health freedom and medical choice when it comes to vaccines – New York State and its bill repealing religious exemptions from mandatory vaccination “is the most draconian repeal bill passed.”
This direct affront to health freedom doesn’t have to remain the law, however. Palma and others are urging supporters of health freedom to spread the word far and wide about not just the bill and its ramifications, but also Kennedy’s efforts to overrule it via the legal system.
“On April 15, 2019, a legal challenge was filed in the New York State Trial Court by Robert Krakow, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Patricia Finn against the New York City Department of Health and Human Hygiene for their forced Measles-Mumps-Rubella vaccination,” reads an official announcement about the lawsuits put forth by Children’s Health Defense.
