Disturbingly, legislation was introduced last session by Senator Josh Miller and Senator Gayle Goldin to severely restrict religious liberty in the Ocean State. In S0381, Sen. Miller and Goldin want to end religious exemption for immunizations like HPV. Rhode Island was founded on the concept of religious freedom by Roger Williams. Do not allow this legislation to threaten the principles of our republic.

The Center strongly recommends that any parent uncomfortable with this vaccine for their children should claim a religious medical exemption. Parents, get the religious exemption form to the HPV Vaccine Mandate now:

In a stunning revelation made public in a July Providence Journal article, all Rhode Island 7th graders will be mandated to receive a controversial HPV vaccination that infringes on parental rights and has been subject of national scorn in recent years. We find it even more troubling that Rhode Island will become just the second state to mandate the vaccine, and the only state to do so by regulatory fiat, without public debate, and without consideration from the elected representatives of the people.

This growing trend of government by executive fiat and regulatory despotism bypasses the traditional democratic process and must cease. Like RhodeMap RI, why do we continue to allow unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats to arbitrarily make such important public policy decisions. Where are the voices of the Governor and our General Assembly, whose authority is being infringed upon by out-of-control bureaucratic ideologues?

We call on the Governor to immediately halt this mandate in order to give lawmakers time to consider overturning this unprecedented edict.
