Rhode Island it is time to #BE BRAVE!!

This is the end of Autism Awareness Month and not a mention from the Rhode Island State House.  If you have seen Vaxxed the Movie, you may recall at the end of the film a call to action was mentioned to ask Congress to subpoena Dr. William Thompson the CDC whistle blower to testify before Congress about manipulation of data and corruption in the MMR study.  We have a resolution being heard to do just that.  A resolution is a shot across the bow, a warning that we are aware and we want action!  Just as we were the first to revolt in the Revolutionary War (remember the burning of the Gaspee)  Come out and support Senate Resolution 2670.

The RI Senate Committee on Health and Human Services will be holding a hearing Tuesday, May 1st and will consider bills we are supporting with regard to health freedom of choice, vaccines and human rights.

The bills authored by Senator Metts  (S2605 and Senate Resolution 2670) and Senator Goodwin (S2744) are the ones we are working hard promote and pass.

This will not happen without the efforts of everyone.  Make your best effort to appear and testify.  Email written testimony or call Chairman Miller. 401-276-5582 and Senate President Ruggerio 401 222-6655 and tell them you support these bills and want them brought to the floor for passage.
