ATTENTION: House Public
Health Committee Hearing
* Calls, faxes and emails immediately needed to oppose HB 89 *
Attendance and testimony
Just when parents in
consent issues have begun a collective sigh of relief and gratitude, one
to attempt to repeal the recently passed conscientious belief exemption in
HB 2292 before parents even get to use it. HB 89 would, in effect, regress
vaccine exemption language back to the old overly restrictive,
discriminatory, and unconstitutional religious exemption. If HB 89 is
allowed to pass, parents in
protection to obey their conscience and follow personally held religious
beliefs regarding vaccination, only to have their rights ripped away from
them again on November 1st. This will be devastating for families trying to
protect their children from vaccine reactions. If you can arrange to be at
the hearing Thursday morning July 10th at , in the Capitol
Extension Hearing Room E2.036, it is so important that the committee see and hear many families opposed to this setback to parental rights.
Please send me an email note
([email protected])letting me know that we can count on you to be
there. Whether you can be
there or not, it is especially important that everybody immediately contact
Governor Perry, House Speaker Tom Craddick, members of the House Public Health
Committee, your own state Representative and Senator, and Lieutenant Governor
Dewhurst to oppose HB 89 and to share with them your frustration over this. Representative Capelo has been
exploiting the sad and unfortunate experience of one central
her they are hurt by a vaccine or a disease, and all parents deserve basic human right to informed consent to a medical procedure that caries the risk of injury or death for their child period.

Public Hearing of the Committee on Public Health against HB 89 by Representative
Jaime Capelo. Thursday,
You are needed to defend important parental rights and prevent them from being taken away. When you get to the Hearing Room, pick up a Witness Affirmation Form and fill it out against HB 89. Make sure you sign the form. Find a committee clerk to give the form to. Even though HB 89 is scheduled first on the agenda, you need to know that there is a possibility they may not get to HB 89 before the House convenes and goes into session for If that is the case, the committee will reconvene shortly after the House adjourns, but hopefully it will be heard first and you will be done in the morning. The committee will call on you when it is your turn to give your testimony. Keep your statement short making sure to explain why this is important to your family.
