A legal fight against the Catholic private schools in Florida, refusing to accept religious exemptions
Senator Joel Anderson shuts down Senator Pan’s argument about the Catholic Church supporting mandatory vaccination, as he states the recommendation comes from an Advisory Board, not an authoritative person or group. Pan tries to deny aborted fetal cells in vaccines but is quickly proven wrong.

The following is an example of an exemption letter (Illinois). In some locations, you may want to research laws specific to your location.
“As parents, based on our personal religious beliefs, we object to the following vaccinations, including but not limited to, list vaccines for that age, for our child _____________.
Illinois law allows parents to object to vaccinations based on religious grounds as laid out in CHAPTER 105. SCHOOLS COMMON SCHOOLS SCHOOL CODE ARTICLE 27 COURSES OF STUDY-SPECIAL INSTRUCTION(8): “Children of parents or legal guardians who object to health, dental, or eye examinations or any part thereof, to immunizations, or to vision and hearing screening tests on religious grounds shall not be required to undergo the examinations, tests, or immunizations to which they so object if such parents or legal guardians present to the appropriate local school authority a signed Certificate of Religious Exemption detailing the grounds for objection and the specific immunizations, tests, or examinations to which they object.”
Our family’s personal religious beliefs prohibit injecting foreign substances into our bodies.
As parents it is our responsibility, given to us by God, to keep our children from being injected with a foreign substance that includes, but is not limited to animal genetics, including blood.
Vaccines contain foreign DNA, albumin from human blood, and animal parts. In the Bible, blood represents the life force of the human or animal. Human blood was to be kept pure and undefiled under all circumstances. Human blood was to remain free of contaminants like animal parts and animal blood (Genesis 9:4, Leviticus 17:11, 17:14, Deuteronomy 12:23, Leviticus 17:10, Acts 15:20, and Acts 15:29). Vaccines contain contaminants which, if injected into our children’s’ bodies, would violate our personal religious beliefs.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 states “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” To honor God and our personal religious beliefs, we abstain from injecting foreign materials and contaminants into our bodies.
Because of these deeply held personal religious beliefs, as parents, we have decided to withhold vaccinations from our children. We take their health and well being very seriously and have chosen other means to strengthen their immune systems and bodies, including but not limited to: healthy diet, plenty of sleep, vitamins and supplements, and working with their pediatrician who supports our approach to attain a healthy lifestyle.“
