OPPOSE H.R. 2527 Vaccinate all children Act 2019

Here is WHY -->

In its 1987 decision in South Dakota v. Dole, which arguably remains the leading case regarding the use of the federal government’s conditional spending power, the Court held that legislation enacted pursuant to the Spending Clause must be in pursuit of the “general welfare.” In addition, the Dole Court held that any conditions attached to the receipt of federal funds must:
(1) be unambiguously established so that recipients can knowingly accept or reject them;
(2) be germane to the federal interest in the particular national projects or programs to which the money is directed; (3) not violate other provisions of the Constitution, such as the First Amendment or the Due Process or Takings Clauses of the Fifth Amendment; and
(4) not cross the line from enticement to impermissible coercion, such that states have no real choice but to accept the funding and enact or administer a federal regulatory program.

Part of the Vaccinate all children Act 2019 H.R. 2527 states the following

SEC. 2. Requiring students at public elementary and secondary schools to be vaccinated.
(a) Requirement.—Section 317 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 247b) is amended by adding at the end the following:
“(1) REQUIREMENT.—For a State or a political subdivision or other public entity of a State to be eligible to receive a grant under this section, the applicant shall demonstrate to the Secretary’s satisfaction that, subject to paragraphs
(2) and (3), the State requires each student enrolled in one of the State’s public elementary schools or public secondary schools to be vaccinated in accordance with the recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices.

“(B) certifying that, in the physician’s opinion, the physical condition of the student is such that the student’s health would be endangered by the vaccination involved; and “(C) demonstrating (to the satisfaction of the individual in charge of the health program at the student’s school) that the physician’s opinion conforms to the accepted standard of medical care.

There is no religious exemptions allotted, and as we see from precedent, it cannot violate any other rights, or due process, or be coercive. Make no mistake that in order for schools to receive federal funding all children have to be vaccinated, and not one school can have a religious exemption. Therefore, the States would be forced to violate the First Amendment in order to receive funding. All schools of course, cannot run without federal funding. The Federal Government would be COERCING the STATES THAT IF THE SCHOOLS WANT TO RUN THEY MUST VIOLATE YOUR RIGHTS AND THE POLICE POWERS OF THE STATES.
THIS IS UNWARRANTED VIOLATION OF Sovereignty OF THE STATES AND THE STATES CONSTITUTIONAL ENUMERATED POWERS.
One of those powers is LOCAL health and INTRASTATE in nature, the Federal Government cannot tell the states how to run their local matters as long as it is INTRASTATE in nature. Vaccines and local health is INTRASTATE in nature, thus this is why the Federal Government is using FUNDS to force the states to comply BECAUSE the Federal Government is OVER STEPPING THEIR LEGAL BOUNDARIES. The Federal Government DOES NOT HAVE the Constitutional Power to enact this bill!

National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius, also known as the Affordable Care Act Supreme Court Case Justice Roberts stated:

The States thus can and do perform many of the vital functions of modern government—punishing street crime, running public schools, and zoning property for development, to name but a few—even though the Constitution’s text does not authorize any government to do so. Our cases refer to this general power of governing, possessed by the States but not by the Federal Government, as the “police power.” See, e.g., United States v. Morrison, 529 U. S. 598 –619 (2000).

“State sovereignty is not just an end in itself: Rather, federalism secures to citizens the liberties that derive from the diffusion of sovereign power.” New York v. United States, 505 U. S. 144, 181 (1992) (internal quotation marks omitted). Because the police power is controlled by 50 different States instead of one national sovereign, the facets of governing that touch on citizens’ daily lives are normally administered by smaller governments closer to the governed. The Framers thus ensured that powers which “in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people” were held by governments more local and more accountable than a distant federal bureaucracy. The Federalist No. 45, at 293 (J. Madison).

The independent power of the States also serves as a check on the power of the Federal Government: “By denying any one government complete jurisdiction over all the concerns of public life, federalism protects the liberty of the individual from arbitrary power.” Bond v. United States, 564 U. S. ___, ___ (2011) (slip op., at 9–10).

And there can be no question that it is the responsibility of this Court to enforce the limits on federal power by striking down acts of Congress that transgress those limits. Marbury v. Madison, supra, at 175–176.

So therefore any Senator or Representative Sponsors who supports this BILL is willfully violating the States' rights and the Peoples' rights!

TELL YOUR US HOUSE REPRESENTATIVE that this bill is unconstitutional, and to vote NAY:

TALKING POINTS

  • The current verbiage for this bill does NOT allow Religious or Medical exemptions! MANDATED for ALL 6th grade boys and girls

  • NO other states have the HPV required for school enrollment as this is an elective vaccine.

  • Many families who fully vacciante choose to opt out of this vaccine due to the severe side effects reported.

  • Requiring this for school entry will drastically drive up the states very low exemption rates.

  • The CDC has a nation-wide recommendation that ALL (boys and girls) age 9 to be vaccinated with the HPV vaccine.

  • Last year an HPV education bill was passed in which education materials is given to ALL children and parents at several locales including doctor’s offices, schools, or anywhere IDPH decides it is necessary to educate the community.

  • Several countries removed HPV from their recommended schedule, and France, India, Japan, and Spain have each filed criminal charges against HPV vaccine manufacturers for fraud, safety issues, and providing misleading information.

************************
" Sec. 2f. Human papillomavirus vaccination. The Department of Public Health shall adopt a rule requiring students, upon entering the 6th grade of any public, private, or parochial school, to receive a human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination. The Department shall adopt the rule in time to allow students to receive the vaccination before the start of the school year beginning in 2022."

"Beginning with the 2020-2021 school year, a parent or legal guardian who objects to immunizations on religious grounds must submit with the Certificate of Religious Exemption a certificate of completion of an online immunization seminar issued by the Department of Public Health under Section 2.5 of the Communicable Disease Prevention Act.

Online immunization seminar. The Department of Public Health shall develop and implement an online seminar that contains information on the risks and benefits of immunizing children against preventable communicable diseases. The Department shall issue a certificate of completion to those parents or legal guardians completing the seminar who must submit a certificate of completion under subsection (8) of Section 27-8.1 of the School Code."
***************************

Please call the bill sponsor (info above), and use this link to find your Representative and let them know you OPPOSE this bill.
https://www.illinoispolicy.org/maps/illinois-house/

((***TALKING POINTS***))

1) This is already in place via the 'Health and Immunization Code 665.510' as parents are currently required to sit through a risk versus benefit lecture prior to their IDPH religious exemption form being signed by the pediatrician.

2) A similar law was passed in Michigan and doctors have stated it had very little success swaying vaccine hesitant parents, and that most parents who are choosing not to vaccinate are already highly educated on this matter.

3) This certificate of completion would violate privacy of parent's personal and medical security information.

4) This bill should only apply to those states with philosophical exemptions which Illinois does not have. A religious exemption is for religious reasons which is a Constitutional right, and forcing education on vaccinations is disrespecting their sincerely held religious beliefs.
