Mandates Toolbox

Children’s Health Defense believes in complete health freedom for parents. It should be the parent’s choice, and not the government’s, to decide what goes into the bodies of their children. Statewide policy is becoming more and more oppressive while, at the same time, more inadequately-tested vaccines are added to the childhood schedule. Parents in many states are now fighting to keep their personal belief and religious exemptions in place and prevent mandates. 

Collected from many advocates across the United States, this resource list contains many helpful items that proved to be useful. Children’s Health Defense hopes this “toolbox” full of factual information in a central location will aid in the defense of health freedom.  Please feel free to use any of these resources and, except for the ones that are copyrighted, brand them for your needs in your state.
