SW Michigan – Contact Rep Upton. Money, money, money.


Are you in the Kalamazoo District (Berrien, Cass, Kalamazoo, St. Joseph and Van Buren counties, and most of Allegan County)?

If so, please reach out to Representative Upton to let him know your displeasure with the current House Bill which will mandate vaccines for children across the US who attend public school. It is bill number HR2232.

Upton is the chair of the committee which has the bill being referred (E&C). Upton can prevent it from being heard, or make it get 1000 referrals. Since he represents your voice, be sure to let him know how you feel about government mandated medical decisions.

As a parent who wants to make your family’s medical decisions, doesn’t this concern you?

But, will he really hear you?


He has won an award for “medical commitment” this year so don’t expect him to easily take your opinion. (http://upton.house.gov/news/documentsingle.aspx?DocumentID=398430)

  1. I wish you all the best of luck-I don’t live in those areas. I would like to point out that because of those vaccines polio was all but eradicated as was Measles and a couple of others. I sure would hate to see kids dying of polio in this day and age–and those childhood diseases were no picnic–I had most of them and now because I has Chicken Pox I get Shingles and that is VERY painful. This is my opinion-you are welcome to yours as well–but I would suggest reading up on those diseases first!

    1. I definitely understand the diseases and signs. But after my daughter’s reaction and knowing the potential issues of both formaldehyde and aluminum she will not get certain vaccines any more. There are always risks.

  2. I don’t live in that area, but I think we should all be a little more update on which bills are in front of our Senators. Too much sneaky business going on.

  3. I think it is important to know all the options and the side effects. I also think that it is important to know what legislation is being passed in your state.
