Legislative Action

Health Freedom Ohio advocates often meet and build genuine relationships with legislators and testify before committees on key legislation to proactively preserve our fundamental right to health freedom.


The willingness and passion to educate, combined with the humility of knowing that advocating for what is right is a learning experience deserving of mutual respect and recognition, are key to successful engagements with those who have the capability to impact current and future legislation. 


You also have the power to make such impact by showing up in truth and letting your voice be heard. Contact us today if you are interested in becoming an active voice in preserving health freedom. Find your Legislator here: https://www.legislature.ohio.gov/legislators/district-maps

HB132

Health Freedom Ohio Supports HB132

HB132 was introduced to the Primary and Secondary Education Committee on Wednesday 4/2/2019.
Health Freedom Ohio supports this legislation. It requires school districts to notify parents of vaccine requirements AS WELL AS exemptions to vaccination as provided by current Ohio law ORC 3313.671. This common sense piece of legislation is pro-transparency, pro-informed consent, and pro-parental rights.


Please call the below listed committee members and share your stories of how schools have withheld or otherwise led you to believe exemptions were not available. Committee members need to hear from you! Ask them to support HB132.
