On Tuesday, Sen. Rand Paul said he did not believe the government should require (FORCE) people to receive vaccinations. We could not agree more.


His statements were made amid what the mainstream media has created: a terrified frenzy due to the “worst measles outbreak” in Washington state, in more than two decades. And just how many people in this state of 7.6 million* have measles?



Sadly, on Tuesday, Paul was the ONLY LAWMAKER to stand in defiance of forced vaccinations at the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee hearing.

Please make sure to watch the video below.

“At Tuesday’s hearing, Paul acknowledged that those who are not vaccinated could spread diseases to immunocompromised people. But he claimed that “there doesn’t seem to be enough evidence of this happening to be reported as a statistic.

‘It is wrong to say that there are no risks to vaccines. Even the government admits that children are sometimes injured by vaccines . . . I still don’t favor giving up on liberty for a false sense of security,’ Paul said.

But Paul appeared to play down the seriousness of the situation, asking, ‘If the fear of this is valid, are we to find that next we’ll be mandating flu vaccines?'”1

Good question.

Paul made it clear in 2015 that he believed the choice to vaccinate should be up to parents. Not mandated by the government:

“I’m not arguing vaccines are a bad idea; I think they’re a good thing. But I think the parent should have some input. The state doesn’t own your children. Parents own the children, and it is an issue of freedom.”1

We are so thankful to men like Rand Paul, regardless of his political affiliations, for standing up for parents right to choose what goes into their bodies.
