(Trenton, N.J.)  Outraged local parents and autism advocacy groups will join with the New Jersey Coalition for Vaccination Choice to testify at the State Capitol in Trenton on Monday. March 7, 2011. They are demanding that parents be given the right to make decisions regarding their children’s health and education, including whether or not they are vaccinated as a condition of public school admission.  They represent thousands who are urging Governor Christie and the State Legislature to support a proposed law that is crucial to protect New Jersey parents’ right to choice.

Two weeks ago, the United States Supreme Court denied the rights of the vaccine-injured to sue in civil court for defectively-designed vaccines. In addition, a Public Health Council bill may soon pave the way for more mandatory vaccines, including adult vaccines, and fewer rights to refuse vaccines due to religious beliefs or personal convictions. While Governor Christie has openly supported parental vaccination choice, former Governor Corzine enacted the first flu vaccine mandate in the nation, causing large numbers of parents to protest.
