Parental rights are being threatened by democrats and leftists across America and it is imperative that Republican governors step up and protect parental rights and informed consent. Republican governors and legislators can support more parental choice and provide equal opportunities for workers by adding a philosophical exemption for vaccines if required for school or work.
A philosophical vaccine exemption would allow students’ parents, university students, and workers to opt out of required vaccines for personal, philosophical, and ethical/moral reasons/beliefs. This exemption helps protect the individual’s private medical information and a philosophical exemption is the parents’ choice.
In 35 states, parents cannot use a philosophical exemption from vaccinations and these states are not wholly following the federal law that protects sincerely held ethical and moral beliefs. A philosophical exemption, along with a religious exemption, for both employees and applicants would follow federal law. Applicants can include students who are attending school, and parents can submit applications for their children.

Here is an example of how vaccinations have benefits, but also carry risks listed on the insert. This is why philosophical vaccine exemptions should be in place, since parents and university students should be allowed to opt-out of vaccinations based on the possible risks, such as adverse reactions.
Federal laws protect religious, moral, and reason of conscience beliefs in the medical system.
Federal law protects ethical and moral beliefs along with religious ones for applicants (applicants can be students attending school, parents can submit applications for their child) and employees.
