The groundswell of angry voters has the Indiana GOP on their heels.
Your voices can no longer be ignored, and a small portion of the Indiana State House of Representatives needs your help to stand up to leadership.
You read that right.
After ignoring MONTHS of your desperate cries for help, pleading for action to end the state of emergency, and a YEAR of trying get them to reinforce your right to exemptions before losing your jobs, they are asking YOU to come to their rescue.
Are you ready to run to their aid?
Do you trust their motives are pure?
I don’t know about you, but I am a little suspicious. What do Hoosiers stand to gain by attending a gathering Monday morning at 10am when the special session was cancelled?
The legislators present know that they will not be passing any legislation that day. If they were truly motivated to pass protective legislation, they would not simply be calling for your presence. They would be working on continuing to grow the number of legislators present. They know they need a majority to move anything! They know they could force the hand of the Speaker (Todd Huston) by standing together. The Speaker needs them to keep his job!
What efforts are they putting in to show sincerity?
Could this just be more smoke and mirrors?
Hoosiers shouldn’t blindly trust the legislators that have put the rights of businesses over the rights of individuals for months and even voted in opposition of Medical Liberty.
The GOP learned a valuable lesson this Thanksgiving week when they offered an egregious preliminary draft in attempt to barter for your rights at the last minute.
Hoosiers would have gotten an unfair trade.
Over 60 people attended Tuesday’s last minute public testimony for the preliminary draft. Hoosiers saw through the plan and refused to make “tradsies” on a weak offer.
Make NO mistake, your presence was a powerful show that Hoosiers will NOT compromise on our rights.
The GOP got the message, Hoosiers are not willing to trade temporary “feel goods” for long term government overreach.
Legislators now know they MUST end the state of emergency and ban mandates in two separate acts. These two issues are clearly demarcated in the minds of Hoosiers and looming variant hysteria threatens both issues.
So what now?
Why are these 20 or so State Representatives asking for your help?
Was the public testimony alone responsible for a change of heart?
While the public testimony was intense and heartbreaking, the legislature has been hearing similar stories from you for months. I don’t think that is what has pushed them forward. So what is?
They are scared.
No, they are TERRIFIED!
Hoosiers showed up at the State House IN MASS with little to NO warning.
You were not only present, but you were powerful.
You were articulate.
You were EDUCATED.
I couldn’t be more proud of all of you. But the GOP- they really are shaking in their boots.
They are concerned that you will hold them accountable for failing you time and time again over the past two years. They want to lull you into a sense of security before the 2022 primaries.
They want you to sit back and TRUST they will do the right thing.
Hoosiers, WE KNOW BETTER.
Complacency and apathy will be the DEATH of Liberty. I would like to hold out hope that the legislature has had a true change of heart and is ready to take action.
We need proof. We need a way to keep them accountable.
To meet this need Hoosiers for Medical Liberty has prepared a simple survey for Indiana state legislature to show their commitment to protecting your medical liberty. H4ML will be attending Monday and circulating the surveys to legislators in attendance.
In order to ensure all legislators have the opportunity to show sincerity, not only will we will be emailing them all a copy. We know how quickly things like this “get lost” in email. So, we encourage everyone to help in the return of these surveys. Below you can download and print off a copy. You can either take a paper copy to your legislator or start emailing them asking them to complete and return the form to H4ML themselves.
Further, when presenting legislation, legislators need to ensure they take a principled stand. The information below outlines what constitutes as a principled stand.
This is our minimum.
To attend, or not to attend. That is the question.
Stand for Health Freedom, Leah Wilson has organized an hour of testimony in the public space on the 3rd floor of the State House Monday November 29th at 10am. Session will not be held. There are not enough legislators to take any form of action.
If you feel called to be there, do it.
If you concerned about missing work or not having the time off to attend State House Events during session then follow your heart.
I cannot answer this for you. I don't want to discourage anyone from activism, but sometimes we have to prioritize.
If you have a testimony you would like to give but cannot attend we will be scheduling and recording 10 minute slots and adding them to the testimonies already on the website!
