NH Conscientious Belief Exemption Bill Hearings
Posted: 1/20/2010 8:58:40 PM

 by Dawn Richardson

NVIC Director of State Advocacy

    The New Hampshire Coalition for Vaccine Choice ( led by NVIC members Eileen Landies and Melanie Streeter will be participating in a public hearing on Jan. 28, 2010 in Concord, New Hampshire on proposed legislation for conscientious belief exemption to vaccination (HB 1555). They need the support of everyone who wants to help secure the right to make informed, voluntary vaccine decisions in New Hampshire.

A fundamental parent right

   One of the most fundamental and important parental rights is for parents to have the final say over what drugs and vaccines are put into their child’s body.  Whether you chose to consent to your child receiving a particular vaccine or not, the important thing is that it is ultimately your decision and not the decision of a government health or school official or anyone else.

 One Size Does Not Fit All

   Unfortunately, there are still states that make receiving an education contingent upon a child being injected with dozens of CDC recommended and government mandated vaccines.  The problem with this is that every child is different and every vaccine is different: one size does not fit all. Ensuring that all states have informed consent protections in their laws in the form of strong medical, religious and conscientious belief exemptions is the only way to protect our freedom to make voluntary health care decisions, including voluntary decisions about vaccination.

Here is What You Can Do

   Here is how you can help even if you do not live in New Hampshire:  please forward this message to everyone you know in New Hampshire so they know about this bill and can contact their friends and colleagues.

If you are a resident of New Hampshire, there are five steps you can take to make your voice  heard and show your support:

  1. Attend the Jan. 28, 2010 public hearing for HB 1555 in Concord New Hampshire next Thursday at 11 a.m. in the Legislative Office Building (LOB), Room 205.
  2. If you can’t attend the hearing, send a letter to members of the Health Human Services and Elderly Affairs Committee.
  3. Send a letter to your own elected representative
    You can link to and scroll down to “Finding and Contacting You Representatives.”
  4. If you or a family member have suffered from a vaccine injury and are willing to help by sharing a vaccine reaction experience, please contact Eileen and Melanie directly at
  5. Forward this information to everyone you know in New Hampshire.  Please remember to reach out to supportive health care practitioners asking for their testimony and letters too.
Together, we can help the “Live Free or Die” state restore parental rights back in favor of informed consent to vaccination with a conscientious belief exemption.

About Dawn Richardson 

Dawn Richardson
   Dawn Richardson is president of PROVE (Parents Requesting Open Vaccine Education), a statewide parent rights advocacy network in Austin, Texas she co-founded in 1997. She was appointed Director of State Advocacy for the National Vaccine Information Center in October 2009.
Securing Informed Consent Rights in Texas

An activist Mom, Dawn has led a highly successful 12 year public information campaign in Texas and in the Texas Legislature to promote awareness about vaccine safety, medical privacy and informed consent issues.  Her work has contributed to positive legislative changes, including the passage of a statewide conscientious belief exemption to vaccination in 2003; the vacating of a gubernatorial executive order for mandatory HPV vaccines for 6th grade girls in 2007; and institution of medical privacy protections in a statewide vaccine tracking system and a newborn DNA storage system. 

Defeating HPV Vaccine Mandates

  Dawn graduated with a BS in electrical engineering from the University of Connecticut and her vocational and educational experience in science and computer engineering has helped to shape her leading role in the criticism of mandatory one-size-fits-all vaccine policies and vaccine tracking systems. She has appeared in many media reports in Texas and nationally defending parents’ right to refuse vaccines. Her February 2007 appearance on the NBC “Today Show” calling for the repeal of the Texas Governor's Executive Order mandating Gardasil vaccine for all sixth grade girls was instrumental in raising public awareness in Texas that the Executive Order should be overridden by the legislature.

Debating Doctors & Speaking Out

 She has publicly debated doctors and spoken at health conferences about how vaccine safety is taking a backseat to genetic technologies and how drug companies are spending millions of dollars lobbying legislatures for stronger vaccine mandates, while government-operated computerized vaccine tracking systems are being used to enforce compliance.

Developing a National State-Based Vaccine Choice Network

   Dawn led the vaccine choice advocacy training sessions at 
NVIC’s Oct. 2-4, 2009 Fourth International Public Conference on Vaccination. As NVIC's Director of State Advocacy, she is developing a national state-based communications and organizing network to help Americans secure vaccine safety, privacy and informed consent protections in state public health laws to protect voluntary vaccine choices in America.

I just have a question. Everyone down my son's father's side of the family, there has been mild complications to more problamatic. I have seen in my husband the reaction in him getting the HEP 3 seriers before working in nursing homes. His mom and sisters have had problems after shots-from not remembering what happened 2 weeks prior to MS(can be traced down family tree) flareups after the shot. I have a firm belief that the ingredients in these shots attacked the mylein covering the spine and led to the onset of MS symptoms .I only found a little research into this since ADHD and Autism are getting much more attention..Is there anywhere this is further studied/

Way to go! Enough with this devious, evil, western medical dictatorship. All vaccines which were started end of 1940's -1950's were for childhood illnesses which were already naturally on the wane and almost dormant. The vaccines have actually increased the very childhood illnesses they were lied to us to prevent. The Eugenics Elite Banksters are also anxious to keep their global agenda going as well from over 200 years ago. Alan Watt for resources of all facts stated here, not my opinion by the way.
Hope & Tragedy by Carroll Quigley to confirm as well. Brave New World--another book to read if you can find. Thank you for your efforts.

I agree that parents should be given the final say in what is put into their children's bodies. There is not one vaccine for everyone. I agree that it should not be mandatory that children be vaccinated in order to go to school. I agree that there should not any kind of devise to determine who has or who has not received the vaccines, etc.

Bravo !!! Thank you so much for all the hard work for our kids and us big people too. :-)

I believe that this is also about Eugenics and not health. They couldn't care less about health. They care about rebuilding the race they want and killing the race they don't want. And my opinion, based on what I can see with my own eyes.

I wish I was wrong.

I forgive them. They don't know any better really. They have never tasted true freedom themselves.

It's often many years after drugs are developed BEFORE any of the REAL side effects develop. In addition to injecting tiny bodies with so many vaccines at one time. I believe one day it WILL be proven that the current procedures for vaccinations had a detrminental affect on our society and it should be up to the parents to take that risk or not. If the drug companies money want to push for legislation for their "safe" drugs, they should be willing to pay for the care of the damage they caused.

Our youngest grandson was given a Hepatitis shot when he was 2 days old. (Our Vet didn't believe me when I told him that! Wouldn't do that to an animal) And the little fellow was lethargic, like sack of potatoes - unlike his siblings. We think the shot affected him adversely. He's OK now, but for months, he was not. Anyone else have that experience?

I'm not in New Hampshire, but I fully agree that parents should have the final say over what goes into their child's body. I'm especially concerned about the rise in autism rates and the prevalence of ADHD and learning disabilities in children, which I believe are related to vaccines. In the 1950's, my younger brother, who was a baby, contracted whooping cough after a DPT shot, and was seriously ill.

God gave us an immune system, pump it up and it will work, put toxic waste into it and it won't. God didn't design our bodies for all the drugs and vaccines and vaccines change the DNA in your body, thus setting you up for chronic disease. Might not happen tomorrow, but it WILL happen. And let's not forget the metals in vaccines, plus animal parts and blood and all the other gunk they are chocked full of. Not only are our kids being set up for death and or ill health, but so are our animals! Those poor things get jabbed year after year after year, until they are so sick they are either put down, or they die eventually. Makes me sick, this coming upon us communism, because that's what it's really all about,eliminate and control. The fewer there are, the easier to control us. God will show his vengeance and I can't wait till he comes back.

it is my goal to see every child adjusted (which means "righted") at birth, and especially after any injections with poison are given. The immune system is only fully in place by ages 7-9 in most people. By then, they have received an amazing amount of substances (can we call this substance abuse or what!?) through the bloodstream. This unfortunately causes a secondary (weaker) immune response than if the disease entered normally, through the mouth and nose. so in effect, we are suppressing the body's ability to respond normally to external pathogenic invasion (think colds and flu's at the very least) the rest of its life. With the help of adjustments, i have stopped getting sick in my adult life, but as a child, i was coming down with every little thing and it would almost always turn into something bigger such as strep throat. Add removing the tonsils, and the immune system is really set up for compromise.

the mind and body is truly adversely affected whether a reaction registers on the richter scale or not. i have read that brain swelling is the desired/normal response to a dpt shot. that sounds fun. thus starts the fight for health for the rest of a person's life.
place. i believe it is also a wonderful way to make a buck off us down the road, as we enter the "disease care system" and the world of symptom relief rather than true health care.

why not try cost-effective natural methods such as chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, etc. to give the body a fighting chance from the inside out?! the body knows how to correct itself given the chance. these methods are safe from an early age on, contrary to the carfully crafted propanda message designed to generate fear in parents. let's do what we can to educate each other so that thinking people can survive this assault and live a life that is happy, joyous and free! thank you dawn for your wonderful work on behalf of the innocent ones...

Out here in Arizona, we are right behind you!
Hire a lobbyist.

My wife and I are both physicians and lecture on vaccine dangers! Hep B in a newborn says it all.
