OPPOSE

Legislation we oppose.

NOW IS THE TIME — Either stand up now, speak out, get active — or roll up your sleeves to get injected because the massive push is underway at the State and Federal level to remove our choice to say no to Pharmaceutical products and for everyone’s vaccine usage to be tracked. Science and the human right to medical freedom are on OUR SIDE. Industry and government interests have only fear and abuse of power to silence us. DO NOT BE SILENCED.
