SB 277

Vaughan VaccinationCalifornia passed SB277 requiring school children to be vaccinated.  It is dangerously close to violating patient autonomy and will probably be ruled unconstitutional for similar reasoning.  SB 538, which would expand the scope of Naturopathic Doctors, is also discussed.  Please notify your California Assembly Member to vote “No” on SB 538.  You may use the following language:

Please be sure to vote “No” against SB538 which would expand the scope of “Naturopathic Doctors” in California. It is bad enough to have the state condone their practice with a licensing board. Let’s not further endanger patients by adding even more semblance of legitimacy to practices not supported by scientific evidence.
