As the debate over California’s anti-parental choice, mandatory vaccination bill SB 277 continues, it has become apparent that one of the measure’s key sponsors and advocates, state Sen. Dr. Richard Pan, has been co-opted by medical interests that would love to see the bill become law.
First, a little history: SB 277 is a measure that would remove all parental objections to vaccines, both philosophical and religious, to vaccinate all children who attend public or private schools in the state. Homeschooled children would be exempt under a current version of the bill, but a vast majority of California families can’t afford to dedicate a bread-winning parent to that effort.
As for Pan, consumer advocate Tim Bolen reports that he is pushing his measure despite opposition from tens of thousands of California parents.
