This is going to be a long one. Make sure you are taking action on 1, 2 & 3
HB1334- Bodily Integrity
First off, let's discuss HB1334.
This bill is the only good thing at the state house right now, and it is about to DIE.
This is our last call, and we need it to be power-packed.
We will focus on 3 calls. You are welcome to call the other members of the committee as you did last week but we also want you to make calls on SB46.
First, the committee chair. We have heard reports that he feels HB1001 from 2022 met the needs of medical liberty.
He is sadly mistaken.
The 2022 bill made discriminatory testing legal and left thousands without exemptions. Worse yet, exemptions are still denied across the state without recourse.
Some committee member LA’s have also been telling concerned citizens to call their own representatives, because they are not represented by the committee member.
CALL THIS OUT!
A bill must go through a committee first; therefore, by being on the committee, the member is absolutely representative of the ENTIRE state of Indiana. If they don’t like that, perhaps they should get a different job.
We must demand bodily integrity provided by 1334.
Call Heath VanNatter 317-234-9139
Tell him: “Hear HB1334 this Thursday, Hoosiers demand the protection it provides. 2022’s bill does not protect us.”
Secondly, the two members of the committee who state that they support medical liberty, Rep Cash & Hostettler;
It is beyond me as to why these two haven’t signed onto the bill and helped move it along. We aren’t sure if Rep Cash is getting bad advice or if she has given up on securing true medical liberty.
Alas, make the calls and put both Rep Cash & Hostettler on the spot. If they do not support this bill, they do not support medical liberty.
Rep. Cash 317-232-9643
Rep. Hostetter 317-232-9981
“I expect Rep _____ to advocate for HB1334. What statement have they made in regards to the overwhelming support for this bill?”

Rep. Cash's LA has been reported to be telling H4ML callers that Rep Cash is promoting her own bills that "do the same." However they do NOT do the same, we covered these "political immunization" bills that do NOT move the needle on Liberty in our meeting.
We call out bills like these for two reasons. We want to make real and lasting change. Unfortunately, that isn't always the quickest or easiest route.
We want to maintain your trust. We want to maintain your willingness to take action. How frustrated would you be if you received multiple calls to actions and got a "victory" only to be denied an exemption again. Or to have your child's dream of becoming a nurse, doctor, EMT, or other medical professional crushed because the law you fought so hard doesn't actually protect your child?
I preach all the time about how we must shake off apathy. We must also PREVENT apathy. Calling out bills that are nothing more than "Political immunization" is part of that. We know that fighting for a bill that makes little to no impact is demoralizing and will lead to apathy.
H4ML is committed to ending apathy and making the political process as easy as possible.
Anti-parental rights: SB46
THIS BILL IS TERRIFYING. I was truly hoping this bad bill would die quietly. After all, the state house claimed that they would not be doing anything controversial this year. 🤥
They cleverly named the bill “Parental Rights,” and it starts off well enough.
Then it takes a dark turn. Stating:
Parental rights can be ignored if it is for a “compelling governmental interest."
🤯WHAT IN THE HECK ARE THEY THINKING!?!? 🤯
This is not a parental rights bill.
This bill is an ANTI PARENT bill.
Are you prepared to have your parental rights trampled on the next time a “compelling governmental interest” arises?
Our parental rights are protected by the Constitution. This bill is unnecessary in the first place.
Once you create a law that states parental rights can be violated for governmental interest you have crossed into the danger zone!
Who gets to decide what “compelling governmental interests” are?
Why on earth would anyone think that the government should be able to control the upbringing, religious instruction, education, or HEALTH CARE of our children?
This is not just an ATTACK on PARENTAL RIGHTS.
This is an ATTACK on SCHOOL CHOICE.
This is an ATTACK on HOME SCHOOL.
This is an ATTACK on RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.
This is an ATTACK on MEDICAL LIBERTY.
💥This is an ATTACK on CHILDREN!💥
Are vaccines a compelling governmental interest? That could EASILY fall into place at this time.
What if Hoosier vaccination rates drop below a certain threshold? Will they consider this a “compelling governmental interest?”
Hasn’t the WHO already stated that declining vaccination rates are of global concern?
😤Is compliance with the WHO going to be a “compelling governmental interest?”
What about the next “pandemic?”
The legislators in this committee and who have signed on to this bill must understand that supporting this bill is a political career killer.
Hoosiers you must act now and kill this bill before it gets out of committee.
Immediately take action.
Call & Tell them: “SB46 is ANTI parental rights. Do not support this bill, it is a political career killer.”

SB 272- SCHOOL CLINICS
Do you think schools should be providing primary health care to their students?
Our schools are failing to keep up with the educational needs of our students as it is.
They do not need this added distraction.
Not to mention the fact that these clinics stand to threaten our liberty and create greater dependency on the government.
How quickly will this convenience turn into a coercive measure for vaccines?
How quickly will students be able to obtain care without parental knowledge or consent?
Currently, the bill has what some would call “guardrails,” including the requirement for consent and parental presence. However, we know how these things work. Over time they will decrease those requirements.
Hoosiers we don’t want health care and education to mix.
We must keep these clinics out of schools.
Conveniently, Senator Andy Zay, who is also a co-author of SB 46 is the primary author of this bill.
When you call Sen. Zay’s office be sure to tell him to “kill SB272 for school clinics. Primary Care clinics do not belong in schools!”
If you live in congressional district 3 (North East Indiana) you will want to take note. Senator Zay is running for the congressional seat even though it would leave his State senate seat open.
If the bills Senator Zay is authoring this year give any indication of what he would be like in congress you may want to consider if you want him headed into the DC swamp.
Zay is putting parental rights at risk in our state.
What rights would he be willing to give away in DC?

SB 192- Pharmacy Vaccinations
We are watching this bill closely for any changes to the age limitations of vaccinations given within pharmacies.
This bill will be heard on Wednesday.
If any changes occur we will be ready to pounce and you will be the first to know.
Thank you for your dedication on this short session. I know that it has been a whirlwind and the calls to action have been weekly.
This will not last long; however, these are incredibly important bills that we know you want to hear about.
We are dedicated to ensuring you stay in the know and have simple actionable items that will MOVE the needle on liberty.
Thank you for being the driving force behind this mission.
H4ML is completely donor funded. We don't get access to the big money our opponents do.
Hoosiers, we count on our donors to make this accessible to all.
If you are not yet a monthly donor please become one now. We are asking for $24 for 2024.
Having expected monthly donations allows us to plan for the future and take on the unexpected fights for liberty, like SB46.
We appreciate your support.
