South Dakota’s HB1235 Affirms an Inalienable Right to Bodily Integrity and Prohibits Vaccine Coercion

Ryan MacPherson

To vaccinate or not to vaccinate? At what age? Which vaccines?

Who gets to make these choices for your children?

A bill introduced in the South Dakota House of Representatives (HB1235) would ensure that parents decide on behalf of their children, and that parents may make an informed decision without coercive influences from any state agency.

Perhaps you have heard of this idea before. Some call it “liberty.” Others call it “freedom.” In South Dakota, they call it “the inalienable right to bodily integrity, free from any threat or compulsion that the person accepts any medical intervention.”

South Dakota House Bill 1235 provides:

If you are a Minnesota resident who supports the idea behind South Dakota’s HB1235, then please sign this petition to oppose Minnesota’s SF1520, a bill threatening to remove parental righst to conscientious objection.

If you do not support the idea behind South Dakota‘s HB1235, then please read the Nuremberg Code and try again later.
