Breaking news SB 277 alert: OC Board of education unanimously votes to petition the State Legislature to align the PBE filing date with the SB 277 effective date.


In a landmark decision, in the interest of sane policy our friends at the Orange County Board of Education, in a unanimous vote of the Board of Trustees,

passed a resolution that will require the state legislature to consider extending the personal beliefs exemption filing date to July 1, 2016. Yes folks, while the room sat empty with the exception of our dedicated team, the OC Board of Education took the first step pushing back this law in the entire State of California. The precedent has been set and other districts will now follow.



Parents need time to understand what is on the line, school districts need time to properly inform parents of their rights, and district staff needs time to understand their crucial role in carrying out their duties as public servants through full disclosure balancing the interests of public health and parental rights.

Special thanks to Lisa Heyrend and the entire team Shanda Lobatos , Susan Born, Juli Stockstill, Dora Ramirez who have for months worked tirelessly with OC Board and put together the parental rights matter group who simultaneously took on other districts. This is the same group that has The Fullerton School District voting on this very same item at their next meeting. Here is the story on that-

Fullerton School District Board of Trustees agrees to agendize alignment of PBE filing deadline with SB 277 implementation date.

The dominoes are falling ladies and gentlemen.

Yes this team didn’t stop for a breather after the the failed referendum but instead focused their energy towards informing the public about the pbe’s and working towards a resolution with The OC Board of Education to bring this crucial decision to fruition.

Special thanks to Robert Hammonds and the elected representatives that acted in the interests of all involved. The power of the individual determined to benefit others is key in this fight for our children. We are all in this together but we must never lose sight of the unique power of the ingenuity of the individual. No man or woman is an island so long as we hold fast to the common goal.

The battle is long and hard but it will be won one step at a time with steps just like this and with the valiant selfless efforts of people like Lisa and all of you. Think outside the box and you will be amazed at the results. We still have a long way to go but now there will more than likely be another 6 months to awaken parents to the dangers of vaccines, educate them on how to navigate the process of exemptions and force school districts to do what they have not been doing for a very long time: informing parents of the existence of an immunization waiver, and letting parents know that the school nurse can sign it in the school office.

I can assure you that this is just the beginning.

      Exactly! Nothing less.

    • #3 by Robin on December 19, 2015 - 9:16 pm

      Great first step. Now we need to get the law overturned! Keep educating people as to why vaccines are bad. Many people I spoke with thought they are safe and necessary – that is a general public perception that needs to change.

  2. #4 by Joe Imbriano on December 19, 2015 - 6:41 pm

    Ladies and gentlemen, there are tens of millions of children on the line with the law and you are all next. Wake up, get involved and make some waves before its too late. This is an agenda plain and simple-

    When my daughter was severely disabled by her vaccines I had never heard any information that lead me to believe such a thing was possible. Now 17%+ of kids have a diagnosed neurological disability and the CDC says it a mystery. Now most people have awakened to the fact they it is a gamble. It seems prudent for every parent to file for a PBE do their research then choose for themselves which vaccines are appropriate for their kids and when to give them. No harm in being on the safe side. If you don’t apply you are in a one size fits all medical pipeline.

    Thank you all for your work to make this happen. Parents need time to process and egregious act of taking away the right to prevent their children to be injected with poisons and suffer the consequences. This is a dark time in the history of California and parents need the time to educate and prepare to home school or move to retain their rights over their children’s health/

  6. #9 by Barry Levinson on December 19, 2015 - 8:16 pm

    The current lack of control that we as parents have with regard to the health and safety (as well as the teaching methods used, i.e. Common Core) of our children attending public school is very shocking. We must as parents continue to stand up for our children’s rights for a good education without risking their health and safety.

    I am not against vaccines. I am against forced vaccinations because I believe we as parents have the right to live our lives without the coersion of the state. These mandates are not at all in keeping with our Constitution and our Bill of Rights.

    • #10 by Juli on December 30, 2015 - 12:40 am

      We have the right to live without ASSAULT.

    Thank you, team! Please keep fighting the good fight for our children!!

  8. #12 by Johanna Roberts on December 19, 2015 - 8:36 pm

    SB277 is most definitely an agenda. The “Hearings” had NO meaningful debate and opposition to the proposal was ridiculed. The Governor was given evidence and reams of data from those opposed, giving valid and Substantiated information, yet he passed the unconstitutional bill into law. A NO-OPT out law! To vaccinate or not to vaccinate should be an option between a trusted physician and their patient, not a GOVERNMENT mandated order of one size fits all. That is outrageous. Even the rules of an immunization waiver are iffy depending on interpretation, but will hopefully save lives.

  9. #14 by marki on December 20, 2015 - 2:53 am

    Ask the school boards to publish attendance data, average marks, graduation data, across all years, depersonalised, comparing vaccinated vs vaccination free students. Then see what people wish to do.

    • #15 by Anon on December 20, 2015 - 8:43 am

      That should not be a determinant for people. Parents’ decisions should not hinge on that data.

  10. #16 by Naomi Gold on December 20, 2015 - 3:10 pm

    Thank you, each and every one of those of you who are fighting against SB 277. How on earth can they kick so many kids out of school? It’s unconscionable.

  11. #17 by Barry Levinson on December 20, 2015 - 7:15 pm

    Naomi they could not kick everyone out of school for failing to march to their orders for mandatory vaccinations if enough parents stood up and refused to comply.

    The way for the people to have real power, is to have a mass boycott of all elementary school children. If parents in mass kept their kids out of school as an official protest to SB277, it would get the attention of the Ca. Department of Education and the Ca. legislature. You see for every day a child does not show up for school, the district looses tax money.

    And money is the only thing that most bureaucratic leaders and elected officials respect.

    • #18 by Anonymous on December 21, 2015 - 12:01 pm

      Excellent idea!
      Have our kids stay home from school and keep them from getting an education!
      Additionally, we’ll just take days off of work so we can babysit our kids since they won’t be in school.

  12. #19 by Dave Holczer on December 20, 2015 - 7:35 pm

    You are all effing morons.

  13. #20 by anon on December 20, 2015 - 8:59 pm

    I just got the very first communication from my daughter’s middle school on SB 277 today, when it is of course too late to file a personal belief exemption. Haven’t heard from the second child’s school at all yet on this issue. There has been nothing on the news about this new law other than the brief, scant coverage several months ago. I can’t imagine how parents who weren’t aware of what was going on must feel, finding out for the first time about this new law and then finding out there is nothing they can do about it. Our school district should be ashamed.

    Thank you for your incredible hard work. You are doing great things!

    Thank you. I can’t tell you enough how much I appreciate all your hard work. Bless you all. This is for the health of our children. Thank you. Thank you.

  17. #24 by John Richards on December 21, 2015 - 10:11 pm

    Dave Holczer and Greg Madison: While I completely agree that the prevailing sentiment in these comments speaks to poor education and hysteria, psychologists have found that individuals with these traits cannot be persuaded by shaming tactics. If we want to protect our children from the paranoia and delusion that these individuals perpetuate, we must somehow find a common ground whilst extending the olive branch. Such is democracy, and such is civil order.

    • #25 by Joe Imbriano on December 21, 2015 - 10:25 pm

      Such is medical tyranny and eugenics.

      • #26 by Anon on December 22, 2015 - 8:11 am

        Yes, just medical tyranny and eugenics.

  18. #27 by Quarantine recently vaccinated? on December 22, 2015 - 5:25 am

    “It’s time to push back. I say everyone call their legislators and demand recently vaccinated children be pulled from school until they can prove they are no longer putting others at risk.”

    Studies Show that Vaccinated Individuals Spread Disease

    For Immediate Release

    Studies Show that Vaccinated Individuals Spread Disease
    Should the Recently Vaccinated be Quarantined to Prevent Outbreaks?

    WASHINGTON, D.C. –February 2, 2015– [ GlobeNewsWire ] — Health officials are blaming unvaccinated children for the recent measles outbreak that started at Disneyland.

    Scientific evidence demonstrates that individuals vaccinated with live virus vaccines such as MMR (measles, mumps and rubella), rotavirus, chicken pox, shingles and influenza can shed the virus for many weeks or months afterwards and infect the vaccinated and unvaccinated alike.1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10

    Furthermore, vaccine recipients can carry diseases in the back of their throat and infect others while displaying no symptoms of a disease.11,12,13

    “Numerous scientific studies indicate that children who receive a live virus vaccination can shed the disease and infect others for weeks or even months afterwards. Thus, parents who vaccinate their children can indeed put others at risk,” explains Leslie Manookian, documentary filmmaker and activist. Manookian’s award winning documentary, The Greater Good, aims to open a dialog about vaccine safety.

    Both unvaccinated and vaccinated individuals are at risk from exposure to those recently vaccinated. Vaccine failure is widespread; vaccine-induced immunity is not permanent and recent outbreaks of diseases such as whooping cough, mumps and measles have occurred in fully vaccinated populations.14,15 Flu vaccine recipients become more susceptible to future infection after repeated vaccination.16, 17

    “Health officials should require a two-week quarantine of all children and adults who receive vaccinations,” says Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation. “This is the minimum amount of time required to prevent transmission of infectious diseases to the rest of the population, including individuals who have been previously vaccinated.”

    “Vaccine failure and failure to acknowledge that live virus vaccines can spread disease have resulted in an increase in outbreaks of infectious disease in both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals,” says Manookian, “CDC should instruct physicians who administer vaccinations to inform their patients about the risks posed to others by those who’ve been recently vaccinated.”

    According to the Weston A. Price Foundation, the best protection against infectious disease is a healthy immune system, supported by adequate vitamin A and vitamin C. Well-nourished children easily recover from infectious disease and rarely suffer complications.

    The number of measles deaths declined from 7575 in 1920 (10,000 per year in many years in the 1910s) to an average of 432 each year from 1958-1962.18 The vaccine was introduced in 1963. Between 2005 and 2014, there have been no deaths from measles in the U.S. and 108 deaths from the MMR vaccine.19

    The Weston A. Price Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nutrition education foundation with the mission of disseminating accurate, science-based information on diet and health. Named after nutrition pioneer Weston A. Price, DDS, author of Nutrition and Physical Degeneration, the Washington, DC-based Foundation publishes a quarterly journal for its 15,000 members, supports 600 local chapters worldwide and hosts a yearly international conference.

    Corrections made Feb 3, 2015: 1) We have struck out the second sentence in the first paragraph, which read, “However, with no blood tests proving the outbreak is from wild measles, the most likely source of the outbreak is a recently vaccinated individual, according to published science.” Since we released the press release, it has come to our attention that 9 cases of measles related to the Disneyland outbreak have in fact been confirmed via blood test as wild genotype B3 measles. We do not know the status of the others. According to CDC there are about 100 measles cases this year, 67 of which are related to Disneyland. While CDC says most of the 67 Disneyland cases were unvaccinated or vaccination status is unknown, they assume that if this outbreak is similar to last year, about 20% were vaccinated. It is clear from the experience at Disneyland and the scientific literature that both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals can contract and spread disease and the demonization of the unvaccinated is unfair, inappropriate and borders on fear mongering.

    2) See also, an added footnote # 17 in the fifth paragraph. The rest of the footnotes are renumbered, accordingly.

    Congratulations. You got a pity resolution passed to shut up a handful of people. The state is going to consider it, then consider not changing a damn thing. Sorry, but you have to have a real reason not to vaccinate other than, “This Facebook group told me about the chemikillz.”

    • #29 by Ignorant on December 22, 2015 - 2:09 pm

      You, Rob, are either ignorant, have a vested interest in more death and injury from vaccines, or are a psychopath.

    Why does Orange County school district need to request permission from the state of CA to extend the filing date? There’s nothing in the law that says the school districts will be punished or how they will be punished for simply not complying with any of this law.
