SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California lawmakers on Monday sent the governor a contentious bill that would impose one of the strictest school vaccination laws in the country after a series of emotionally charged debates.
The Senate reaffirmed the bill striking California's personal belief exemption for immunizations on a 24-14 vote. Mississippi and West Virginia are the only two states with such strict requirements in place.
Huzzah! California had turned into such a laughing stock over vaccines because of the high number of
moonbats skeptics we produced.
The measure has prompted the most heated legislative debate of the year with thousands of parents taking to social media and flooding the Capitol in recent weeks to oppose the bill at legislative hearings. They and some lawmakers say that the state is eliminating informed consent and trampling on parental rights.
Thankfully the legislature rejected the idea that this kind of consent was anything resembling "informed".
Also, parents don't have a right to make their children into martyrs for their beliefs.
Onward to the governor's desk!
