Parents in California have filed suit asserting their rights to choose whether or not they want to vaccinate their children. The claim is that SB277 is unconstitutional.
The Federal Court Complaint contends that SB277 impairs the Fundamental Right of California children to an education, and shows how the Personal Belief Exemption was used by conscientious parents to change the timing, to make choices, and sometimes object, to some or all of the many vaccines required when school children enroll for classes. Under SB277, all right to control the vaccination schedule will be gone. All right to opt out of even a single one of dozens of doses, will be gone.
Under article IX, section 5 of the California Constitution, children are guaranteed the right to a public education. SB 277 is in direct opposition of this right. “SB 277 has made second class citizens out of children who for very compelling reasons are not vaccinated according to the CDC schedule,” said plaintiffs’ attorney Robert T. Moxley. Lead plaintiffs’ counsel James Turner added, “We are hoping the court will grant us an injunction while the judicial process takes place to see if this law is constitutional, which it most certainly does not seem to be.”
