THIS BILL IS A HEAVY-HANDED GOVERNMENT OVERREACH AND ENCROACHES UPON PARENTAL RIGHTS. THE STATE DOES NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO OVERRIDE THE AUTHORITY OF PARENTS, RELIGIOUS RIGHTS AND ISSUES OF CONSCIENCE. WE CALL FOR AN IMMEDIATE CEASE AND DESIST.
The Frederick Douglass Foundation urges opposition to this bill as we stand for and by the rights of parents and guardians to make the right choice for their children and families regarding mandatory vaccinations.

OTHER TALKING POINTS SUGGESTED
This bill would require ALL children 2 Months to 18 Years Old to get the COVID-19 “VACCINE” to attend school or daycare, if it is approved for their age group, (“clinical trials” have already begun on infants). All public, private, parochial schools, and childcare providers are covered under this bill. Contact your New York state assembly member and senator and ask them to STRONGLY OPPOSEA8378.
The Rochester Area Democratic Delegation has immense power in the legislature. Harry Bronson is of particular importance as he has noteworthy seniority in the Assembly. His district also covers URMC. Bronson voted NO on the Religious Exemption bill in 2019- THIS IS HUGE, and he got massive pressure from the party to be ousted last election. He believes that those with religious beliefs shouldn’t be discriminated against; just as no one should be discriminated against for race, sexual preference etc. WE
AGREE ASSEMBLY MEMBER BRONSON.
I am calling to ask the Assembly members’ stance on bill ________. I would like to respectfully ask that he/she/they oppose this bill and the outward discrimination of individuals and children based on vaccination status.
