Oregon Democrats: Vaccines For Thee, But Not for Me
By Shari Dovale
The Democrats in the Nanny State of Oregon are again attempting to regulate every aspect of people’s lives by demanding that all citizens receive all CDC recommended vaccines.
At issue is House Bill 3063, which is billed as removing the ability of a parent to decline required immunizations against restrictable diseases on behalf of child for reason other than child’s indicated medical diagnosis.
In other words, this bill is designed to remove ALL non-medical exemptions in Oregon related to schools, charter schools, daycare, and preschools, as well as religious exemptions. Basically, every child will be restricted from public spaces if not immunized, if this bill passes.
The party of “It’s my body, it’s my choice” does not believe the same mantra when it comes to vaccines.
Putting them to this test, however, is Republican Senator Kim Thatcher, who put forth a list of 29 amendments to HB 3063.
Thatcher released the following statement:
“House Bill 3063 abolishes informed consent, undermines the Hippocratic Oath and puts the Oregon Health Authority in between children and their doctors. Unelected bureaucrats and Pharma should not be making decisions that are best made by doctors and their patients.
The package of amendments I have requested be drafted dismantle the false narrative promoted by proponents of forcible injections and we are working with legislative counsel to draft these amendments. Where there is a risk, there must be a choice—keep up the fight.”
At the forefront of the proposed amendments is one that states:
Any lawmaker voting in support of HB 3063, or signing the bill into law, and their immediate family members, shall have administered to them the bill’s mandated vaccines. Vaccination protocol shall begin within 30 days of the passage of the bill and adhere to the full schedule required for children under the bill.
The Democrats that have been pushing for 3063 have screamed “Foul”, claiming that the amendment is unconstitutional. They believe that they should not be required to have the same series of vaccinations they are demanding the children receive.
The full list of amendments that were requested by Thatcher’s office:
- Exempts private schools, private day care centers, and private preschools from any restrictions to vaccine exemptions.
- Exempts charter schools from any restrictions to vaccine exemptions.
- Exempts religious schools from any restrictions to vaccine exemptions.

- Exempts a child from mandatory vaccine requirements if a parent, legal guardian, or adult in loco parentis signs and presents a written certification that the child has a biological parent, brother, or sister, with a documented history of immune system problems or a documented adverse reaction to a particular vaccine required by rule of OHA.
- Exempts a child from the vaccination requirements for whom vaccination is not recommended under current guidance issued by the United States Food and Drug Administration or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
