DENVER (CBS4) – State lawmakers are once again debating a bill that would make it harder for parents to opt-out of vaccinating their children. The controversial measure is up for a second reading in the state House on Monday.

(CNN)

The bill requires the state health department to develop a standardized form and a strict process for parents who choose to not immunize their children — whether it be for medical, personal or religious reasons.

Additionally, the bill will overhaul how the state keeps track of who has received immunizations.

The bill’s sponsors say they want schools to be safe for all kids.

Colorado ranks among the lowest when it comes to vaccination rates, including diseases like measles, mumps, chicken pox and whooping cough.

  1. More propaganda for Big Pharma. Big Brother, aka the Democratic Party, in bed with Big Pharma, wants to control our lives through fear of a harmless childhood infection. Measles is NOT a DISEASE! It is a transient infection that resolves in a week. Ask your grandmother. A disease is cancer, diabetes, asthma, epilepsy, lupus, ALS…….and so many more that can be a side-effect of toxic vaccines.

    Interesting comment on the HB1312 hearing sent today by HSLDA, the Home School Legal Defense Association:

    “During Monday’s marathon hearing, which lasted over 12 hours with nearly 600 people attending to testify, Representative Titone (D) likened the new vaccine database to a list of the “bad guys” which was needed in order to know where the people were who were “going to get you.” You can listen to the representative make these remarks at the 1:10:40 time mark.” http://coloradoga.granicus.com/MediaPlayer.php?view_id=117&clip_id=14013

    I would suggest backing up to 58:00 which is where the citizen mother begins her testimony; the citizen mother/military veteran addressed by Representative Titone. Representative Titone is totally disrespectful not only to this mother but also to every single opponent of this bill. Please listen to the testimony and ESPECIALLY to Rep.Titone’s comments. Very revealing…..
