Join_usMaybe I'll meet Stephanie Plum! Or Morelli! Or Raaaannnngggeeeerrrr....

I'm speaking at this rally in Trenton, home of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum. See how seamlessly I weave my writing and my autism worlds together? Like Besty Ross I am! LOL! This rally is NOT anti-vaccine, it's about allowing parents to maintain control over their children's health.

One Thousand People Expected To Rally For Vaccination Choice
at the State House in Trenton, NJ on Thursday, October 16, 2008 at 12:00 p.m.

Rally Information: Rain or Shine, Thursday, October 16, 2008, Noon- 2 pm, 125 West State Street, Trenton, NJ, www.njvaccinationchoice.org for more rally details.


NJ Assemblywoman Charlotte Vandervalk, Board-certified Pediatrician Dr. Lawrence Palevsky and National Vaccine Information Center co-founder Barbara Loe Fisher, will join NJ parents and professionals at a rally in Trenton for vaccination choice.


Nearly one thousand people are expected, requiring Trenton to close the streets to accommodate the crowds. The speakers represent a cross-section of society including medical doctors, nurses, chiropractors, scientists, clergy, educators, soldiers, politicians, journalists, autism activists, homeschoolers and many parents.

The NJ Coalition for Vaccination Choice (NJCVC) invites you to rally with them by the steps of the State House, outside Gov. Corzine's office. The group opposes the four new vaccine mandates including an annual flu shot for children ages 5 and under, required for daycare and pre-school. NJCVC supports the passage of bill A260/S1071, a conscientious exemption to mandatory immunization which will permit parents to select all, some or no vaccinations for their children. A form of this parental right already exists in 19 other US states. All legislators will be in Trenton for a Special Session. Fox News plans to cover the event. Fox aired a live segment on vaccination choice in NJ on October 9 (see HERE and HERE). Press urged to cover this high visual impact event: signs, banners, balloons, photos, children, music, personal stories, legislator appreciation ceremony.

Wow! This is fantastic. I wish I could be there. I have two kids - neither on the spectrum, but I do have a modified vac schedule, which I continue to get grief over from my ped. I REFUSE to give my 23 month old son the MMR right now - NO WAY! Keep being a voice for our children, Kim!
