I couldn't help but notice on other boards, vaccine enthusiasts questioning if religious exemptions (constitutional right regarding freedom of religion) were not honored in 2 states, then, that must mean religious exemptions are not a right and they should be fought at all costs. (rolling eyes)
These enthusiasts are uneducated in this area. Currently, initiatives are taking place to have the rights recognized and honored for the citizens in these states. The reason it hasn't been in the past is because the people have not assembled.
Just as in DC for 25 years, citizens' rights to the 2nd amendment were not honored, it took an assembly to go to the federal courts to recognize their constitutional rights. The Federal court agreed and DC's law was overturned. Currently being appealed at the Supreme Court level, which is what the big to-do is about regarding the interpretation of the "right to bear arms".
Sorry enthusiasts... try again!
