Thousands Protest in NJ as Vaccine Bill to Remove Religious Exemptions Stalls in the Senate

Health Impact News – by Highwire News

In a big victory for New Jersey citizens and medical and religious freedom, the State’s Senate failed in its attempts to pass a new bill that would have eliminated religious exemptions for vaccinations, according to non-profit Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN).

Thousands of parents protested inside and outside the State Capitol for over ten hours on Monday, chanting “Kill the Bill,” “We Will Not Comply” “My Child, My Choice” and “Stay Strong, Lagana!” referring to NJ State Senator Joe Lagana. 

“This is a victory for the people of the state of New Jersey,” says Del Bigtree, founder of ICAN. “This bill was fast-tracked to steamroll its way to passage, but the good people of New Jersey rose up and reminded politicians who’s really in charge of their children.”

Controversial bill S2173 would have put an end to a rule that allowed more than 14,000 state students to skip their vaccines because of their family’s religious beliefs. It was similar to recent bills passed in California and New York State.

Earlier Monday, the New Jersey bill passed the State Assembly in a 45-24 vote with seven abstentions

State Sen. Joseph Vitale (D-Middlesex), who sponsored the bill, said that he was one vote shy of passage, thus a Senate vote would not be held.

The New Jersey Legislature will have an opportunity to revive the bill in January, before its two-year session ends Jan. 13. But if the bill does not pass before Jan. 13, the entire process would have to start over next session.

Weekly online medical news program “The HighWire with Del Bigtree” was the only media source to cover the protests live, garnering more than 250,000 views over their Facebook, YouTube and Twitter platforms over the course of the day.

  1. Govts on the planet throughout history have always tried to subjugate the people. This is history, repeats itself over and over and over and over.

    When and not until the people of this country as well as the planet just stand up to the pricks with brute force they will not stop trying to kill us. Vaccines are one more forced kill method.

  2. should do more than stall in senate

    but if it doesnt ..yall can KMA anyways ..just like my gun rights ..aint touching my guns and you aint sticking that shit in my arm

    try and force it

  3. “This bill was fast-tracked to steamroll its way to passage, but the good people of New Jersey rose up and reminded politicians who’s really in charge of their children.”

    Uh… that would be CPS.

    They kidnap the children at will, and I’ve seen little to no resistance so far.

    “We Will Not Comply” “My Child, My Choice”

    Thanks again for the t-shirts, mary! 🙂

  4. This bill is just the tip of the iceberg. They want to make all vaccines mandatory for everyone! They are not sticking those poisons in my arm (or any other body part!)!

    1. watch how fast people offer up their children when they won’t get their ‘government’ welfare check unless they comply

      home births (hide your babies) no birth certificate no ssn home school…

  5. These people (protestors) are no different than those involved in the ‘sanctuary counties for guns’ movement
