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)
