I cannot imagine anyone who does not feel affected by this. Indiana has been
the kickoff state for several big, awful changes in American history, and
its legislators have introduced some rather awful legislation (e.g.,
Bayh-Dole Act of 1980), so this is nothing new.
I invite everyone to act, each according to his/her own conscience.
Best to all,

Indiana introduces mandatory vaccinations for teenage students. Vaccine
clinic to help families meet new school rule. Fort Wayne In. Beginning in
the fall, Indiana law requires that all students in 6th through 12th grade
be vaccinated against meninggococcal diseases, chicken pox and whooping
cough. This letter is on the Internet. I called and talked to a nurse at the
health department. She said it was a law. She said it was a school rule. She
said IN. only had a medical exemption. She said she wasn't sure. She said a
parent could talk to a nurse and get a waiver. She hung up on me. If they
get away with this it will spread like wild fire. I hav not heard of the
religious exemption being taken away. Paul offit was in Indy last summer
talking about changing the laws. This may just be an outcome of that
meeting. I urge everyone to call and demand to know what is going on.
The number is 260-449-7561. Spread the word. Now is the time for every
parent and anti vaccinist to come to the aid of the children. This insanity
will not stop. It will not go away. Please call now and question these
people. Is it a law? Is it a school rule? Have they taken our religious
exemption away? Why are they saying this and then acting like they don't
know whats going on? Your school will be next no matter what state you are
