October 20, 2022- Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) unanimously passed the addition of COVID-19 vaccination to the childhood schedule.
What does this mean?
This means that the CDC is recommending the COVID-19 vaccination for all children 6 months and older per the childhood immunization schedule.
The CDC is the reigning authority on vaccination and childhood immunizations in the United States and the schedule they release is considered “standard of care.”
Typically, when the CDC makes changes to the schedule, states follow the recommendations and physician’s offices begin using the new “standard of care.”
You may begin to see these vaccines offered at routine visits and even given at the same time as “routine” vaccinations without much notice by some providers.
This does NOT mean it has been added to the vaccinations “required” for those who do not use a religious exemption in Indiana. More on this below.
The addition to the childhood schedule permanently removes manufacturer liability for injuries incurred as the result of vaccination. All vaccinations on the childhood immunization schedule are exempt from liability.
KNOW YOUR RIGHTS.
Parents call the shots, and you deserve to know what is on that tray! Just because a vaccine is recommended by the CDC or even “required” for school doesn’t mean that there is no other option. Indiana students have the right to a religious exemption. Read more on exemptions here.
Some parents accept some vaccinations and decline others. If your child receives any vaccinations, you should be getting informed consent BEFORE the vaccines are drawn up or administered.
Most offices don’t do this.
Informed consent consists of the vaccination name, illness it is to prevent, risks of the illness, risks of the vaccination, benefits of the vaccination, and alternatives to the vaccination.
In addition to informed consent, you should be receiving the “Vaccine Information Statement” from the CDC PRIOR to the vaccination. This is a legal requirement.
If your child is scheduled for a well visit, address which vaccinations your child is scheduled for as well as any concerns before the doctor or nurse leaves the room to get vaccines. Once the nurse returns, ask specifically for the syringes to be reviewed by name prior to administering. This second review gives you the opportunity to verify what your child is getting and that you consent to the vaccination.
You have the right to ask questions, delay, or decline any vaccination even if it is drawn up.
Unfortunately, many Hoosiers are not aware that they have the right to decline any medical treatment or procedure. We need to help educate our friends and neighbors to seek out informed consent and a risk benefit analysis. Check out our resources here.
Tell parents to be mindful and ASK what vaccines are due before the nurse administers or even draws them up. Encourage them to discuss the risks and benefits of both natural infection and vaccination for their child for each vaccination.
Be informed on the issue.
Each state governs their own requirements for schools.
During the ACIP meeting, participants of the meeting were quick to point out that ACIP and the CDC are not in control of the vaccination requirements for schools.
Those familiar with the process know that the state health officials and legislatures typically follow the advice of ACIP & the CDC.
The requirement for school children has not been determined by Indiana. Local journalist Margaret Menge recently wrote that the Indiana Department of Health (IDOH) said they would not be making a requirement for Indiana Students in an email response.
While we appreciate that a response was sent to Ms. Menge, the state has not addressed this in an official capacity on their website or on social media. The state has not had a great track record protecting its citizens against mandatory covid vaccinations. Much like doctors’ offices it is typical to follow the “standard of care” set forth by the CDC.
It is important to let the health department know Hoosiers do not want this mandated for school children who haven’t claimed a religious exemption.
It is also important to note that in the event that the state does require the covid vaccine for school children, public school children have a right to religious exemption for all vaccines including Covid-19.
Indiana state code 20-34-4-2 requires vaccination of school children, who do not claim a religious exemption, to be vaccinated for diphtheria; pertussis (whooping cough); tetanus; measles; rubella; poliomyelitis; mumps; varicella; hepatitis A; hepatitis B; and meningitis.
Indiana Code 20-34-3-2 provides religious exemptions for vaccinations. For a student to claim a religious exemption a parent or guardian must submit a written statement of religious objection. Nothing more is required by law.
Learn more about your right to a religious exemption here.
In light of Medical information warranting a change in the name of public health the IDOH may expand or modify the list of required vaccinations for students who do not claim a religious exemption. Basically, when the CDC and ACIP change the schedule, so can the IDOH. If a spike of cases occurs, they could change the requirements. By law the IDOH is required to submit a 2 year calendar each year on November 30th. In the case of an emergency the deadline for reporting does not apply.
According to this law the requirements may be changed at any time. That means that even though the State Department of Health is not currently planning to require it for school children, it doesn’t mean that they can’t or won’t change their mind.
Acting quickly to work against the COVID-19 vaccination being added to the immunizations required for those who do not use a religious exemption is key! Hoosiers need to step up and help provide information for our unsuspecting neighbors and family members.
Conversations don’t have to be difficult.
Our call to action.
Make calls to the State Board of Health, State Legislators, and County Commissioners.
You might be wondering why the county commissioners are included. We have talked about the Governor’s Public Health Commission for the past several months and how the state is wanting to “centralize” or “regionalize” Indiana’s public health agencies.
Is it a good idea to hand over power to the CDC?
Orders will be passed from the CDC to the state and the counties will be forced to comply. This issue alone deserves its own call to action, but with the pressing news about ACIP adding the COVID vaccine to the childhood schedule we are combining these.
The Governor’s Public Health Commission met over the course of several months making recommendations with the goal to develop "regionalized, equitable, and sustainable public health.”
Want more info?
Need talking points?
These recommendations will be reviewed by the governor and then addressed in the 2023 legislative session.
A plan to coerce and extort...
The June 2022 meeting of the Public Health Commission revealed the frightening plan to eliminate local control and the ability for the counties to opt out of mandates dictated by the state or CDC.
The meeting is nearly 2 hours long but we have made very telling videos summarizing their plans that can be seen on our website.

You can download educational guides with more talking points here.
When we heard that ACIP would be voting we knew the Covid vaccine would be added to the childhood schedule.
You might be wondering why we asked you to comment if we knew it was going to pass.
The answer is simple, we are still accountable for our actions.
If at any point we sit by and let these things happen “to us,” we become VICTIMS.
We are not victims.
We know the risk, so we do things differently and we must fight for those who don’t know any different than to follow based on trust alone.
At this point, one of the most important things for us to do is share this information with others. We must give them the opportunity to have informed consent.
You can download and print our Informed Consent Guide and share it with friends and family.
Need to start the conversation first?
Start by asking a basic question.
“Did you know ACIP added the COVID vaccine to the childhood vaccine schedule?”
Acknowledge their answer, and continue the conversation as it feels natural. Remember, our goal is not to change anyone's mind but to aid them in obtaining informed consent.
You are a powerful agent of change in Medical Liberty. Thank you for contributing to the mission.

P.S. We are looking for volunteers! You can help further Medical Liberty. Check out the options or suggest one of your own. We will have a meeting to discuss on Thursday November 3rd 7pm EST via ZOOM
P.S.S. Are you a monthly donor? If so you have made some AMAZING contributions. Not only are you helping here locally, but you are supporting national education on VAERS that will be life altering. VAERS project was endorsed by America's Front Line Doctors, Children's Health Defense, National Health Freedom Action, National Health Freedom Coalition, The Robert Scott Bell Show, The Truth About Cancer, Weston A. Price Foundation and SEVERAL other groups at the 2022 National Health Freedom Congress.
Thank you for your GENEROUS contributions to Medical Liberty. If you haven't started donating monthly but want to please do so now. Your monthly donation of $10, $25, $50, or even $100 will support this and other efforts to secure Medical Liberty.
Creative title right!
I am getting this up for those who have asked. This is an important meeting covering the Governor's Public Health Commission.

To start this meeting we listened to "I Will not be Leaving Quietly" by Five Times August I highly recommend giving them a listen.
I was having difficulty uploading the video to the website. It is uploaded on youtube, I have concerns that it could be removed due to content. If that happens I will do my best to upload the video again.
I don't know where the time goes, I remember my adults telling me this would happen as a kid. Yet I am still astonished at how quickly things are moving.
Every minute is precious so I am going to try to respect your time and cut straight to the meat of the issues.
What you will see:
H4ML Near Me Update:
Did you know that we meet the 3rd Thursday of the month at 7pm EST?
We do! Getting together with people who have similar thoughts on Medical Liberty is refreshing & has become a staple for many of our members.
There are two ways to join us, online or in person!
To join online you will need to pre-register for the Zoom meeting here.
Bloomington & Fort Wayne met in person!
H4ML Near Me is such an important part of our mission! Developing a local community will result in some of the greatest changes in our politics and preserving our freedoms, but more on that later.
We would love to see you at one of the two locations above, but better yet, help bring H4ML Near You! (See what I did there 😂)
Learn more about what it takes on our Local Partners page.
Do you want text alerts about H4ML Near Me Meetings in your area?
Text 260-286-0988 the name of your county to get updates. For example, if you live in Adams County, you would text “Adams County”
If you live in Wayne County, you would text “Wayne County”
It is no secret that the May primaries were a bit of a shock. I would be lying if I didn't' say that Liberty took a hit in Indiana.
The loss of both Representatives Curt Nisly & John Jacob was a blow we knew was a possibility but did not expect.
The establishment is rejoicing.
They think they accomplished something big…
We will be working on an update to the Legislator Line Up to reflect liberty candidates for the general election in November. We will send reminders out closer to the election.
Please take time to review who will be on your ballot and ask them to complete our 2022 Candidate survey.
Candidates committed to Medical Liberty
The following candidates include those who have won the primary and have returned a 100% Candidate Survey.
Many of them are likely to face a challenger from the other party or an independent.
Candidates in RED are incumbents whose voting record does not align as closely with Medical Liberty as we would like, however, they did return a 100% candidate survey. More on this later…
These candidates have all agreed to help secure your medical liberty, but they are going to need some support and accountability. Being a legislator is not an easy job.
Since winning the primary each of these candidates has been battered by any number of groups asking them to write or support legislation they propose. They will be tempted by other groups and the establishment to focus on other issues or betray their commitment to Medical Liberty.
It's up to the citizens of each district to communicate with their legislators, making sure they know YOU are watching and will do your best to communicate your needs with them. They also need to know YOU will be holding them accountable for bad choices in legislation.
We will need to keep a very close eye on the legislators marked in red. These legislators may be increasingly more susceptible to the influence of the establishment but they have made a commitment to Hoosiers.
They signed a paper asserting their commitment to your Medical Liberty. They must uphold their word!
We have launched our WatchDogs program. Ultimately, our goal is that we will have 3 WatchDogs for each legislator.
WatchDogs will be in regular communication with the legislator in their district. This is how we build accountability as an organization and it can't be done without YOU.
We are working on detailing some steps just for guidance but the process will be simple centering around monthly communications varying between email, phone, and in person.
H4ML will support you sharing educational information and updates on the bills. Time commitment is around 1 hour a month.
You can start today, simply by contacting your candidate and asking them to take our survey if they haven't yet. You can check the list above to verify. Then just let them know that Medical Liberty is your top priority and you will remain in touch with them.
The most important thing to remember is that you are NOT to become friends with your legislators. You are there to hold them accountable, this is a "business relationship."
When you start thinking that you want to be friend with your legislator, look at the image at the top of this section and ask yourself, “Which do I want to be?”
If you would like to get WATCHDOG updates?
Text 260-286-0988 the word: WATCHDOG
There is a huge buzz surrounding the WHO Pandemic Treaty and International Health Regulation amendments. These are two separate items and many people think that they are the same thing.
Watch the video I made earlier this month here to learn a bit more.
Here are a few key points about the TREATY.
Let's break this down a little further. The WHO is going to keep tabs on this and I wouldn't be surprised if this does proceed forward. All of us need to be talking about this and how it impacts our future.
We experienced this type of structure with COVID. What they are proposing is not a new idea, they just want to “lock countries into” continuing the behaviors they exhibited with COVID.
If we are keeping this short then we can skip to the 2nd to last bullet point there. They recognize there is a need for years worth of political, financial, and societal commitment.
This means that this is a slow growing threat requiring INFRASTRUCTURE.
They recognize that this is a big commitment.
They are telling us the weaknesses.
WE EXPLOIT THIS!
But more on exploitation after we discuss the amendments to the International Health Regulations…
International Health Regulations Amendments.
This deals with a lot of the same things addressed in the WHO Treaty however in this case the amendments were brought forward by the secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS). You can read the amendments here.
Again, if you haven't watched the video I made earlier this month I encourage you to watch it here. This is the same link as under the treaty portion.
Read more from Diane Miller & send an email to your federal level legislators here.
In short here is the break down of what is happening in the amendments:
When we are looking at these different global initiatives one running theme we see is the need for infrastructure. If they cannot build this out and control the local level, none of them can be carried out.
However, these initiatives are being brought forward by our agency officials. We have also been posting on our facebook page about how the CDC is looking at restructuring with a focus on improving communication and resources in the “under served” areas. Including greater funding to provide better resources, data collection, and “equity."
You have to ask yourself, how many of the under served areas will coincide with the more conservative responses to the pandemic?
During the past two years we have seen how these conservative “outliers" have pulled the rest of the country from the depths of draconian measures.
It is really a simple principle, the extremes define the middle. If the CDC, WHO, & global leaders are able to eliminate the extremes the middle is quickly pulled into the draconian landscape.
Our job is to hold the line, to secure our freedom loving counties and pull the extremes farther into the land of Liberty.
This issue is BLOWING up right now. Everyone is up in arms and honestly every time we turn around it seems like there is another emergency demanding our attention.
Threats to Medical Liberty are not going anywhere. We are going to battle this for years to come. We need to be thinking about how to preserve our energy and avoid alarm burnout.
As we progress through the next several years you are going to see multiple different opinions on each issue. Some are going to be dire, some will be frightening, and others will just make you cautious.
Variety is normal and healthy.
Difference of opinion within the movement does not mean division.
Difference of opinions within the movement just mean that we have free thinkers, it means that those in leadership positions are THINKING through the issues and not just giving a prescribed response.
I hope to see varied opinions.
The role of a leader is to to bring attention to issues, provide actionable items that create change, and maintain focus. We are facing a long fight so it must be controlled chaos to achieve that.
An enthusiastic activist would take the time to listen to a couple opinions and try to decipher what makes the most sense to them.
Even easier, they can look at the resolutions proposed by differing opinions.
If the resolution is the same then you can act quickly. There is no need to split hairs to see “who is right."
If the resolutions differ it can help to ask yourself a series of questions to find a resolution.
You might consider:
During this process be mindful of:
Holcomb's Public Health Commission
This is where it all comes together.
I mentioned earlier how infrastructure and local control over politics is the key to stopping the big machine…
Well, as it turns out, our governor is part of the machine.
Or at least a minion of the machine. We have talked briefly about Holcomb's Public Health Commission (PHC) and how the goal is to centralize the Indiana State Department of Health and to bring greater health outcomes and equity. Essentially this PHC is just building the infrastructure that will support the CDC & WHO initiatives.
You can watch a really great video on the PHC here.
The day of our last meeting the PHC met and it was interesting to hear the way that the wording changed. Obviously, this is something we will continue to watch.
Right now we know that they are working to centralize the county health departments. Doing this will require the support or permission of the County Commissioners.
Our job is to get to the county commissioners and let them know we do not want centralization, and that THEY are responsible for the appointment of a County Health Commissioner. So they WILL be held accountable for unsavory actions by these un-elected people.
The PHC will be meeting again in both June and July where they will accept public comments. We will be issuing a call to action about this soon.
So if the PHC is the "lynch pin" of all these other initiatives how do we fight back?
It is doing all the things we have discussed the past two years.
The responsibility and the POWER are ours. We just have to follow through.
We are conducting some research to create greater awareness around VAERS. But we need your help.
HEALTHCARE WORKERS are needed to complete this survey. We are hoping to get a broad reaching sample and would really appreciate if you would put this out in your circles. We need to assess the knowledge base of the main stream health care workers, and unfortunately it seems that that has become increasingly more difficult for me. 😉
Please save the image below and share it far and wide through text message, email, or on your social sites. There is NO need to credit or link back to H4ML. It may be better if you refrained from doing so.
Thank you for taking the time to read this monstrous issue. We certainly have a lot to do, but we are making it happen. I truly appreciate each and every one of you for the way you have stepped up!
Ashley Grogg, MSN-RN
P.S. There will be multiple volunteer opportunities coming. Please stay tuned, we need your skills and talents. If you are unable to volunteer your time please consider becoming a member and joining the effort through monthly financial contribution.
P.S.S. I want to leave you with a closing thought. “People contemplating a visit to the past worry about radical changes to the present. But people in the present don't think that small decisions or actions can radically change the future for the better.” I don't know where this thought originated but I feel it is worth sharing.
What small decisions can you make to create radical change in the future?
This video reviews my thoughts on these two different threats to Medical Liberty and their severity.

The Primaries are Tuesday.
If I am being honest, it can’t get here soon enough.
Tuesday’s election will determine if Indiana moves further into Tyranny or starts heading toward LIBERTY!
The choice IS yours.
But you MUST vote!
So many people have worked tirelessly for the past 2 years in order to make sure that we can be as informed as possible, but more on that later.
Let’s take a look at what is at stake, shall we?
Hoosiers have not been shy about their desire for Medical Liberty. This past summer saw countless rallies where Hoosiers demanded protection.
The Indiana Republican super majority was in prime position to protect the citizens, but instead they bowed down to Gov Holcomb and special interest groups.
They killed SB 74 in 2021. That bill alone would have guaranteed exemptions based on religion and right of conscience.
COVID hysteria escalated, the COVID 19 “vaccine” came out, and mandates were rampant. Hoosiers lost their jobs, faced discrimination, and were charged MORE for their health insurance when they refused to be coerced into taking an experimental gene therapy “vaccine.”
All summer and into the fall Hoosiers made thousands of calls, hosted rallies and stood on the steps of the statehouse BEGGING for help.
The legislature ignored them.
Hoosiers continued to lose their jobs and be forced to test with invasive and painful testing methods. Some Hoosiers had significant nose bleeds and tissue damage as a result of aggressive testing.
In November, the legislature decided they were finally going to take action.
But not really…
They jerked Hoosiers around for almost 5 months before passing a “medical liberty bill.”
But was it really?
We knew in November that the authors of HB1001 were simply employing a political tactic to “soothe” tensions with voters. They knew they had to put on a good show for the public and they wouldn’t have time to do that during the shortened legislative session.
Hoosiers had figured out the legislature had MULTIPLE opportunities to provide Medical Liberty in 2021.
But they didn’t.
Hoosiers figured out that the “vaccine passport ban” the legislature snuck in at the last minute was WORTHLESS.
The legislature KNEW their jobs were on the line if they didn’t do something.
Hoosiers testified for over 14 hours on HB1001 and yet the authors REFUSED to ban mandates.
Matt Lehman & his merry men offered a glorified version of federal protections barely offering Hoosiers more.
The minuscule benefit included a “natural immunity exemption.” However, those claiming natural immunity would have to prove it every 90 days.
What’s worse, is that ALL persons using an exemption would be subject to up to twice weekly testing, at their expense and the employer’s discretion. Claiming natural immunity would require more expense & effort than that of a religious exemption.
We were flabbergasted when we heard Rep Matt Lehman tell his fellow legislators and Hoosiers HB1001 was a "good bill to protect Hoosiers" even though it gave businesses permission to discriminate against the unvaccinated with testing.
They created a law allowing discrimination based on vaccination status.
THAT IS THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT WE WANTED!
The goal was to END vaccination status discrimination.
Some groups proclaim victory, even with the discriminatory testing placed on the law books.
Hoosiers for Medical Liberty knows HB1001 is a strain on liberty.
But that isn’t all, the legislature showed that they are willing to meet demands of the governor despite constituent opposition.
Hoosiers did not want to participate in Federal Handouts.
Hoosiers knew those handouts came with string and a price…
The Indiana legislature voted for inflation by passing the administrative authority portion of HB1001 and they delegated their power to an unelected official.
Do you think HB1001 was really to protect your Medical Liberty?
How do you think the Legislature will behave when Governor Holcomb demands the centralization of the State Health Department and collaboration with the CDC?
Do you think that they will stand up for your rights when they couldn't even stand up to the Governor?
Hoosiers for Medical Liberty has been warning their followers about the impending threat of the CDC restructuring.
Hoosiers for Medical Liberty was paying attention this year when the legislature passed laws to rename the Indiana State Department of Health.
Hoosiers for Medical Liberty suspected sinister motives.
Unfortunately for Hoosiers, our concerns have been validated.
Governor Holcomb’s Public Health Commission will be headed up by none other than Dr. Judy Monroe, directly from the CDC.
One of the major goals is to centralize the health departments, removing local control. Meaning that the state would dictate policies, mandates, and lockdowns. Of course, you know with the CDC at the helm, the state will likely follow orders.
If you live in an area that was more conservative with the COVID “safety measures” this could be a big change for you. Your county may lose its ability to decide what happens in your county.
We do not need bigger government. We need smaller government.
We have uploaded a copy of an informative video done by Indiana for Medical Freedom on the blog. https://hoosiersformedicalliberty.com/blog/state-health-centralization
You will be able to get the details from the video above and we will be sure to keep updating you.
If all that isn’t bad enough it has been confirmed that Federal Senator Mike Braun, is co-authoring a bill with a Democratic Senator from Illinois to place burdensome requirements on dietary supplements and increase control over what the public has access to.
Hoosiers have been using “dietary supplements” (ie vitamins and herbs) for generations to promote and maintain their health.
This bill could significantly limit your ability to minimize or avoid pharmaceutical use.
During COVID we watched as the regulatory agencies pulled tried and true drugs from the market removing hope for early intervention.
Could you imagine if Hoosiers didn’t have access to dietary supplements they use daily?
Being a citizen of Indiana we have a unique opportunity to tell Senator Braun to cease any actions in supporting this bill. Below you will see an image with a call to action. Make sure you follow up.
I wanted to be sure to tell you about this because we need to act NOW before the bill is out, but also to illustrate that the government is trying to make your health care choices across the board.
Hoosiers we must fortify our legislature with Liberty Loving people who will fight for your constitutional rights. The state legislature determines what happens right here in Indiana and is a VITAL part of the checks and balances.
That is why you must be informed and hit the polls on Tuesday May 3rd!
Find the voter guides of our favorite organizations and review them.

Beware! Not all Medical Liberty groups are created equal.
There are DANGEROUS recommendations being made by Stand for Health Freedom.

Hoosiers for Medical Liberty has been transparent about our careful vetting process and invited Hoosiers to play a role in it.
We state the facts and leave the decision making up to you.
We won’t tell you who to vote for, but rather where they stand on the issue of Medical Liberty.
We hope you will take all of this under advisement and get to the polls.
Thank you for doing your part for Liberty!

P.S. Thank you for your generous commitment to Hoosiers for Medical Liberty, we are so blessed to be able to reach so many and your donations help us do that. If you haven’t done so yet, please take a moment and make a donation today! h4ml.org/membership
P.S.S. Your favorite Liberty candidate may be looking for volunteers at the polls. I will be standing at the polls for a candidate in a district near mine and you can do the same! Most of the time you can pick a 1-2 hour slot but they would be overjoyed if you could do more.
Indiana for Medical Freedom shared this video on their page and it was so good that I wanted to be sure you all were able to see it.
In it you will learn about how the plans of the CDC and Governor Holcomb will come together this summer if we do not act NOW!
The best way to stop this is by putting 100% Medical Liberty Candidates into office Tuesday May 3rd.
You MUST get to the polls and tell your Liberty Loving friends to do the same.
What you can expect from this update:
Today: The 3rd Thursday of the month we have our virtual monthly meeting at 7pm. You can register here.
If you are in Ft. Wayne you can attend an in person meeting at Crossroads Wellness Center.
We would love to have more local meetings. You can learn more about helping host local meetings here.
Legislator Line Up
Have you seen the Legislator Line Up?
If not, head over now and check it out. We have worked to make sure that you can make an informed decision when voting in the May 3rd primaries.
We know it can be difficult to keep up on “all the things” so we tried to make it as easy as possible for you to identify where candidates stand on Medical Liberty.
In February every individual who filed for State House or State Senate candidacy was mailed a Hoosiers for Medical Liberty survey. Our survey gave them an opportunity to declare their dedication to Medical Liberty. We had a great response from liberty minded challengers, many of which scored a perfect 100% on our survey.
You will be able to see all the details here.
For challengers facing incumbents we have taken an extra step to point out some KEY votes that took place in 2021 highlighting the complete neglect for your Medical Liberty. If this bonus exists for a candidate their name will be underlined on the legislator line up and you can simply follow the link to learn more.
Do you recall the image from the top of this email? The one about the Turkish Proverb. I encourage you to go back and read it if you missed it.
You must know, the establishment is GREAT at trying to misdirect and confuse Hoosiers.
This IS the reason we are in the mess we are today.
Hoosiers we must not be fooled by incumbents who have historically done a very poor job representing our interests. We have been scrupulous at watching their tricks and theater then explaining what is happening both in public as well as “behind closed doors.”
Aren't you sick of having to fight endlessly for your rights?
Aren't you sick of government occurring behind closed doors?
Are you ready to get more Liberty minded candidates working for YOU on the inside?
NOW IS THE TIME FOR ACCOUNTABILITY!
Go, become informed, ask questions, and settle for nothing less than what you deserve. LIBERTY.
Confusion in the movement…?
Unfortunately we have received a lot of questions about the discrepancies between H4ML's Legislator Line Up and the endorsements from Stand for Health Freedom.
We are perplexed to say the least, but you must know that some of the endorsements or recommendations that Stand for Health Freedom gave are a DANGER to your Medical Liberty.
We made a video to highlight a few of the issues, it is about 4 minutes long and describes the flaws people are getting worked up over.
We encourage you to watch the video, review the legislator Line Up, and make an informed decision.
We do want to be clear, as a 501c4 non-profit organization, Hoosiers for Medical Liberty does not endorse, support, or oppose any political candidate.
Indiana has an easy set up to learn about your poling place and find out who is on your ballot. Simply follow this link.
Then you will click “Who's on the Ballot”
You will enter your info and you will be taken to your “portal." From there you will be able to view your poling place etc.
There will be a section titled “Who's on the ballot” and you can click “View all" to see everyone who will appear on your ballot.
I hope this information is helpful for you. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.
Let's talk abstinence…
Yep, we are going there!
Informed voting is a MUST! Especially in the primaries, these races are where the decisions are truly made when there is an open seat or a CHALLENGER in a republican controlled district!
I have discussed this for months and talked about the importance of voting, so what I am about to say may be a bit confusing.
If you do not have a candidate that you feel will adequately represent you, YOU SHOULD ABSTAIN from voting in that race.
You can still make selections on the ballot, there are multiple races.
Take a deep breath, I said it. ABSTAIN!!
This is not about choosing from the lesser of two evils. Simply abstain from placing a vote for a candidate that you don't think is fit for the job.
For me this choice is easy, one of my elected officials does not have a challenger and he has NOT been a good representation of what I want down at the state house. I will simply skip over that section on the ballot.
I will probably do the same thing in the general election in November.
Our votes are like points on a job evaluation. If we want them to vote the conscience of the people than we had better do the same.
I don't want to affirm poor representation.
Remember our voting is the only way to hold elected officials accountable and we must make sure they know where we stand.
🚨🚨Call to action🚨🚨
You knew I couldn't leave ya without a call to action, right?!?!
This one is going to be simple. Pick one or two:
Thank you for your ongoing dedication to Medical Liberty! This is a long fight, and the primaries are a big part of accountability!

P.S. Don't forget to hop on our meeting tomorrow night where we will discuss the election races more in depth and answer any questions about the legislator line up and voting records.
P.S.S. If you like what you see here, please make sure you take a moment to become a member or donate. We are so thankful to our loyal donors who keep this mission alive.
Being informed is hard enough, but when organizations give conflicting information it is even more difficult.
Stay informed friends.
You can click the link to the Legislator Line Up on the menu above.
It has been a long battle fought for Medical Liberty. Unfortunately, our State government is more interested in protecting big business, special interest groups, and the Governor rather than the citizens who elected them.
I know that the passage of HB1001 is disappointing.
This disappointment should do nothing more than MOTIVATE you to take your activism to the next level!
After all, if we want to win we can’t quit.
Your participation is going to be vital to eliminate employer-based discrimination. Nothing in HB1001 says that the employer must require testing or even mandate a vaccination. Working together with your co-workers will be imperative. We will have more on that later.
We have so much momentum behind us and it wasn’t coming from the legislature.
Make no mistake Hoosiers, you are the force of change.
Medical Liberty is dependent upon YOU.
When you feel discouraged, I want you to look at the success we have had thus far.
Hoosiers, together we have
Hoosiers for Medical Liberty’s activists have done this in the past two years, imagine what we can do if we continue to march forward?
I have been told that in the past one of the greatest frustrations with Medical Liberty organizations & groups is that they are filled with fire during legislative season and then fall off during the “off season.” H4ML is not that kind of organization.
We are full-bore, protecting your rights year-round.
So what can you expect? We will continue with updates and communications. We will be working on collecting the remaining Candidate surveys for the 2022 primaries then sharing the information with you. Hoosiers for Medical Liberty does not provide endorsements to candidates. We will only discuss behaviors and voting habits of incumbents and compare that to how Challengers complete our Candidate survey.
We will focus on the development of local grassroots. We truly see this as where the “magic happens.” We need you to stay engaged, dig deep and help us create a future where Medical Liberty is the norm, not the exception.
Thank you for all your hard work, it is not unnoticed!
P.S. I hope you are already registered to vote but if not you will want to do so prior to April 4th. If you are not registered by April 4th you will be ineligible to vote in the May primary.
P.S.S. If you are not a member, we invite you to become one today.
HB1001 has been contested by it's author and will go to conference committee.
House conferees are listed however the Senate has not assigned theirs yet. When we know senate conferees we will put out a call to action.
We will also be watching to determine when the committee occurs.
Our hope is that during committee the discriminatory testing will be removed. That will be the focus of our calls to action.
Bear in mind that the governor could still veto the bill and send it back demanding that the vaccine portions are removed all together. We do not know what will happen, but we have to do our best ensure that discriminatory practices are not put into the law.
We will communicate as soon as we get more info!
Thank you for being so dedicated!
P.S. Don't miss out on the Convoy- check to see if it will be driving near you.
This is going to be incredibly short.
HB1001 passed on 3rd reading in the senate. However, it may make a stop in conference committee. We will provide updates for that as soon as we know but it may be very short notice.
Once we know if it will go to conference committee and who the conferees and advisors will be we will push a call to action. Our goal is to remove the discriminatory testing.
If you would like to you can work in advance collecting the information to support your stance.
Regardless of if the bill goes to conference committee the bills next stop will be the governor's desk. He can still veto and send it back. This is a very interesting time and there truly is no telling what will happen.
We likely won't do widespread calls to action for the rest of this bill, if you want the updates you will need to have already texted 260-286-0988 the code 1001 or do so now. We will use this list to send out calls to action. Please let your friends know if they would like timely updates.
When texting please only send the code: 1001. If you send anything else in that text you will not get added unless I do it manually- which is not a guarantee.
Thank you again for your dedication!
P.S. The image below has been shared on our social media outlets, please comment and share those to help increase our reach, censorship is real!
P.S.S. You can also save and share the image especially if you are on other social media networks.
We have covered the discriminatory practices that are offered in HB1001, if you need an update check it out here.
We need you to take action ASAP.
You are AMAZING! Your calls had the senate in a tizzy.
I was watching session and the tension was palpable. After they completed the 2nd reading list you could see the panic and difficulty in deciding what was going to happen even though they had already caucused TWICE during session today.
There were multiple people moving in and out of the chamber, talking back and forth in the hallway to confirm the plan.
Rod Bray, Senate Pro Temp and Republican Leader motioned to move the entire 3rd reading calendar to tomorrow! This is particularly interesting after his recent comments. See our FB post here.
They were scrambling and refused to hear HB1001 because of the pressure from H4ML activists!
Wednesday March 1st is the last day that it can be heard before dying.
It is a bad bill, we want it dead!
HB1001 is getting a hearing in the Senate tomorrow! Read the blog to see the laundry list of flaws with the bill and an important call to action!
Get it sent to you, text 260-286-0988 code: 1001
All TRUE Medical Liberty bills died in committee. It appears that leadership has no intention of providing your Medical Liberty.
The legislature is attempted to “fix” the decades-long nursing shortage. In their haste & refusal to listen to nurses, HB1003 will decrease safety of patients & staff alike.
Once all the bills are heard the end of session will conclude with “Conference Committee.” During this time, bills that were changed by the other chamber will be heard and decided upon.
We will be watching what happens there. Historically legislators pull out their greatest trickery passing things that get stripped out in general legislative process.
We know that it is very unlikely that anything will move through in regular session for Medical Liberty, but we aren't ready to give up, knowing anything is possible in conference committee.
We just launched a new petition and hope to pressure the legislature to take action. Check it out below.
Check out the story here. As it turns out One America, an insurance company, said that these were “unheard of” numbers and it wasn't isolated to Indiana.
Ultimately there is a lot of speculation as to why this age group in seeing such a significant rise in deaths. Some speculate that it is, at least in part, related to the COVID vaccination.
Indiana has also seen it's fair share of suspected adverse events with over 25,000 VAERS reports in Indiana alone.
It is time for our leadership and medical community to investigate the issue.
If you agree, sign the petition and be sure to share it with your friends!
Calls to action & Text messages.
This year was a bit strange, legislative session has been moving super fast and I feel like I don't know where it went.
We have also had tremendous growth, but in that I have noticed that some of you want every single text message (thank you) and others are not quite able to keep up with all texts but want to remain involved.
In order to find a happy middle ground we have created a group for everyone. I am not sure if we will use this much this year but wanted to roll it out before we really need it.
As you can see from the graphic to the side all you have to do is text the name of the group you would like to join to us. After that we will keep you updated from there.
Thank you for your continued support!
I have been dreaming of this for quite some time, and it is finally here.
In addition to our zoom meeting, Fort Wayne Locals will be able to sit in on the meeting with their neighbors at Crossroads Wellness Center.
We are looking for more Local Partners and look forward to many more locations across the state! Check the website often for updates, or text 260-286-0988 the name of your county like “Allen County” for updates on local meetings.
Let's get scary!
I sound like a broken record, I know. This class changed my world and Hoosiers for Medical Liberty is the result.
If you want to learn about politics in a while new way- join us March 26ths in Fort Wayne.
The only regret you will have is not going!
Can't make the 26th? Visit h4ml.org/facl for other Indiana classes. Register NOW

How can bills be dying 3.5 weeks into session?
How do you know bills are going to die?
So what does that mean?
Even though the Senate date isn’t until the 27th, these bills die earlier. Tomorrow Wednesday Jan. 26th is the last committee meeting for Health & Provider Services in the Senate and the last chance to be heard. Public comment is only taken during committee hearings or “1st reading.” Committee chairs are required to give at least 48 hours’ notice to the public prior to hearing a bill. That means that any bills not already on the committee calendars are not eligible to be heard.
This year multiple Medical Liberty bills were filed, I am pretty sure there are more that what I listed.
Why were so many filed and not heard?
That explains why so many were filed, but not as to why they weren’t heard. The answer to this can be found in so many of our blog posts. The Indiana State legislature seems to be snared by corporate interest groups, lobbyists, and the chamber of commerce. These entities do not want the rights of the individual preserved over the rights of business.
Representatives Curt Nisly and John Jacob have both worked with H4ML over the past two years to bring about Medical Liberty. Time and again their amendments and bills are discarded and avoided at all costs. We are now seeing this type of behavior against other bills offering Medical Liberty protections. Some wonder if the only way that Medical Liberty will be permitted is if it is under the watchful eye and discretion of special interest groups.
Who is to blame?
We must take ownership of the mess we are in. Only through our involvement and continued accountability for our legislature will we see proper representation.
The purpose of this was not to chastise or discourage you. It is quite the opposite. I hope this encourages you to stay involved and become an active member of the organizations that align with your values.
If you are looking for a no-nonsense Medical Liberty group you are in the right place. We are going to keep writing these blogs, exposing truth, and educating our followers. We want you to feel empowered to take an active role in our government. This is the only way out of the tyrannical mess we are in.
We invite you to become a member of Hoosiers for Medical Liberty, make sure you are on our contact list, and of course, share with your friends!
Thank you for your attention and I hope this helps clear up some confusion.
First someone has an idea and they present that idea to a legislator. The legislator weighs the pros and cons and if they like it they draft and file a bill.
Once filed the bill is assigned to a committee in the chamber the legislator belongs to.
In committee lucky bills get to be heard- this is also called “1st reading.”
Bills are not guaranteed to have a first reading or vote. One of the most common ways for bills to die is in committee. Bills that do have first reading can be amended or “refined” in committee.
If the bill passes then it moves “out to the full chamber.” During 2nd reading any member of the chamber may offer amendments and each amendment can be voted on. Once the amendments are voted on the chamber votes to move the bill to 3rd reading. 3rd reading is when a vote is taken on the final version of the bill before sending over to the other chamber.
Once the bill “flips” to the other side the whole process starts over again.
If the bill is amended in the second chamber the author can approve the changes or challenge the changes. If challenged the bill versions go to “conference committee.” In conference committee a small number of legislators from each chamber are brought together and decide on a final draft before passing. If an agreement is not able to be reached the bill fails.
If a bill makes it through both chambers unchanged it moves on to the Governor for signature.
Once on the Governor’s desk, he or she can sign or veto the bill. If the bill is vetoed, then it goes back to the originating chamber and can be voted on again.
That is a crash course in how a bill becomes a law.
It looks like they might be trying their hardest to do nothing more than the same this year, but they want you to think they are “striking balance” between the rights of the people and the rights of the businesses.
Despite over 14 hours of testimony the House Republicans refused to make any positive changes for medical liberty on HB1001 and INSIST on bowing down to dangerous demands set forth by the governor.
HB1001’s exemptions are no more protective than federal protections currently available and has its fair share of strings attached. The bill includes provisions that would allow an unelected official to accept federal funding and “any other federal law, regulation, guidance or policy pertaining to COVID-19 relief.” This is giving the federal government an open door into our state governance. The IGA has the capability to end the state of emergency without adding these stipulations into law. The administrative aspects of this bill are a threat to Liberty!
Yet neither of them were passed.
I encourage you to go back and watch the footage.
Next Rep. John Jacob brought forth an amendment for Bodily integrity. This amendment would have fixed all the issues Medical Liberty Activists saw in HB1001’s vaccination portion of the bill. It was beautifully crafted and Rep. Jacob’s speech was heartfelt and compelling. However Representative Leonard made a point of order stating that the amendment was in violation of rule 118.
Rule 118 is also referred to as “Bill pending.” Meaning that you can not write an amendment that looks like a current bill. At the time of filing the amendment, there were NO bills in the house that looked similar. Yet on January 13th HB1408 appeared on the IGA website and was eerily similar to Rep Jacob's amendment. In this story the order of events is incredibly important.
Let’s look at this timeline:
HB1001 passed through the House and has been referred to the Senate where Senators Messmer and Charbonneau are sponsoring the bill.
These two senators have not previously been champions of medical liberty, in fact Senator Charbonneau is the chair of health and provider services committee. This particular committee has historically had close relationships with the hospital association and pharma.
Some might say that the assignment of HB1001 to Sen. Charbonneau was an intentional death sentence, especially after Senate Pro Temp Rod Bray’s negative public comments about the bill.
Senator Charbonneau’s committee has already passed Senate Bill 3 which covers the dangerous administrative portions of the HB1001 without the exemption portions. SB3 will be heard on second reading today (Jan 20th).
Hoosiers for Medical Liberty drafted an amendment and attempted to get several Senators to file it on behalf of Hoosiers. Unfortunately, Senator Kruse is out of town ineligible and with the help of Dr. Dan Stock three other Senators were approached without anyone willing to take up the amendment.
My expectation is that HB1001 will die in Charbonneau’s committee and SB3 will pass through and transfer over to the House rapidly while HB1001 sits to die.
Call to action:
“I am sick of political games and misdirection. It is time to deliver TRUE Medical Liberty protections. It's time to live up to your role. I am asking you to take a stand, do what is right, help bring transparency to politics.”

This bill has passed out of the Senate Committee without any of the changes recommended by Hoosiers. Yesterday, passed second reading without amendments. There is little to stop it from becoming law.
Are you concerned about the quality of care in Hospitals?
Staffing shortages have been exacerbated by vaccine mandates and the House is trying to correct shortages via dangerous HB1003 through temporary licensing & cutting back on student clinical hours without addressing mandates.
Here is the breakdown of issues with this bill:
- The bill addresses temporary licensing for Physicians, Physician Assistants, Nurses, Respiratory therapists, and Pharmacists. It creates a temporary fix but may actually cause a bigger problem once it expires. The bill ends the last day of the quarter in which the federal emergency ends. That means temporary licensees and their employers could have notice of any where from 3 months to as little as 3 days notice that the license expires. This could easily create a vacuum effect and cause immediate staffing issues.
- Nursing students can get a temporary license prior to completing NCLEX, the MINIMUM competency licensing test. There are also no parameters on how long a student is permitted to work without completing the exam. This is very concerning, hospitals are desperate for staff and may take advantage of students in these positions. While working large numbers of hours to earn money and please their new employer students may not prioritize the exam over work. Students may also be at higher risk for burn out, mistakes, and moral injury.
- The bill also offers temporary licensing to foreign nurses. We don't hold anything against foreign nurses, however the state has seen issues with language barriers creating dangerous situations for patients. This could be fixed with a simple amendment to require English competency.
- The bill addresses nursing education allowing qualifying nursing programs to "increase enrollment at any rate the program considers appropriate." This is asking for trouble. Nursing faculty is difficult to obtain and there are no guidelines to keep the programs from over enrolling to increase. The bill adds that programs may be mostly staffed by part-time faculty and allows the school to replace important clinical hours with simulation lab up to 50%. This is astounding, clinical hours imperative for students to learn how to interact with patients and learn the skills that cannot be taught out of a book. This has significant potential to impair the education of our future nurses. These students may care for you or your loved ones.
- Finally, they NEVER address vaccine mandates for students. It seems the House Republicans want to go above and beyond to allow licensing loopholes and potentially allow for bad practices in nursing education, yet they can't address the elephant in the room. Far to many students in health care tracts are being bullied, harassed, and even removed from their programs for not taking the vaccination. This seems incredibly unfair, once in the medical profession these students will have the right to exemptions for medical and religious reasons. Other students are choosing career paths outside of healthcare to avoid vaccine mandates. This injustice must be corrected!
Call the Authors & your Rep and tell them: "HB1003 needs to be amended. Vote YES on Rep. Nisly's amendments calling for respect of religious exemptions for health care students and increased safety in temporary licenses and health care education."

Our Virtual Meeting dates have changed!
That means we will be meeting Thursday Jan 20th at 7pm EST
We look forward to seeing you there!
What an incredibly wild ride it has been. I want to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays as you close out your year.
2021 started out with a bang as we embarked on our first legislative journey learning along the way. H4ML & it's Membership was the driving force behind SB74 and nearly 20 amendments on other bills to secure Medical Liberty. We have been working behind the scenes to make sure we can continue creating change here in Indiana!
I want to end the year with a last update and sharing my New Year's Resolution, but more on that later!
Here is what you will read today:
- Ashley's New Year's resolution.
- Monthly Meeting Date is MOVING! Exciting changes, coming in 2022!
- Legislative Plans for 2022.
- Candidate questions, and why we can't go there.
- Success & Growth.
Why?- Let's revisit this in a little bit.
Right now, we are all living in a dystopian world where everyday happenings seem surreal and impossible.
So many of us would like to just return to “normal.” As much as I hate to admit it, normal is never coming back.
We will never go back to the “pre-pandemic” way of life.
In a lot of ways, that is a blessing.
Hoosiers have learned so much over the last two years. Many of us have become politically active for the first time, perhaps in our lives. For so long we took the importance of politics for granted.
I don't enjoy politics, but I never want to go back to apathy. This has been an incredibly empowering time for all of us. Even though most days it can feel overwhelming or even as though we are up against insurmountable odds.
The truth is, the American spirit is THRIVING.
The American Dream isn't possible without American Politics.
My New Year's resolution is to never return to normal.
My New Year's resolution is to find balance between politics and the American dream.
My New Year's resolution is encourage and inspire those same things in each of you.
My hope is that you will join me in this resolution and share this message with others, so that they may be inspired to shake off apathy and join in defending Liberty.
But… I mentioned before- New Year's Resolutions are often forgotten.
Why do we break our resolutions?
Do we make resolutions that are unattainable?
Maybe there is a lack of support?
Or, life just gets busy?
Sure these are all reasons why people break their resolution.
This resolution is attainable, its a work in progress.
This resolution will be supported, because we are all working on it together.
Of course, life is going to get busy, but we must never forget where we are. We must never forget how much time we have sacrificed to reclaim our rights.
Even after victory seems apparent is going to be vital to remain “in play." By staying engaged we will ensure we never come back to this place again.
Will you join me in my New Year's Resolution and help make it a reality?
I have put the final touches on the agreement forms and now we can recruit local professionals to assist in hosting meetings.
Our plan is to have 5 locations in January. Each location will live stream the typical monthly meeting for the first 20 minutes and then the rest of the meeting will be for community building and outreach planning.
We think this is going to add so much life to the movement, rapidly accelerate growth, and success.
As we add locations you will be able to find them under the H4ML Near Me page nestled under the “Get Involved" tab on the website.
You can also text 260-286-0988 with your county for example: ADAMS COUNTY to get notified of new meeting places.
If there is a local professional in your area that would like to consistently host monthly meetings please have them text 260-286-0988 the word: PARTNER to get more information.
You will still be able to participate from home via Zoom just as before. You will need to register for the meeting again.
Thank you for helping us make this a success!
Yet here we are, waiting with baited breath to see what kind of legislation will pop up surrounding Medical Liberty.
So far there are two bills filed by Senator Kruse. SB 30 which is very similar to our bill last year, ensuring exemptions. SB 31 which is specific to COVID. Senator Kruse has a third bill being drafted off of language we presented and we are pretty excited about the prospects.
The House of Representatives has only filed one bill…
We have all seen House Bill 1001, which is a far cry from protection for Hoosiers but we anticipate many more bills yet to come.
We will be keeping an eye on legislation and could use some volunteers.
We will be reaching out to those who have specifically asked to help in the past and will have a zoom to discuss bill reading.
Be on the lookout for that email.
Haven't signed up yet? No worries, click the link for volunteering and sign up now.
Much like this year snuck up on us and flew past, we know that the May primaries won't be much different.
We would love to be able to answer all the questions we get about the best liberty candidates, but as a non-profit, we cannot do that. In fact, we do not endorse, promote, support, or oppose any political candidate.
We don't want to leave you hanging. Liberty Defense PAC is an amazing organization run by a good friend of H4ML and they are fully equipped to help answer all your candidate questions.
From what we have heard there is going to be a large number of new candidates hitting the scene. This event will give you the opportunity to meet them and learn about what they stand for!
Go get your tickets quickly, I have heard they are selling fast.
Rep. Curt Nisly and his wife Mary will be featured speakers!
You truly make this all happen. Through your generosity we have accomplished so much in the past year. Let's take a quick review of what your donations have accomplished:
- Our amazing website, full of resources, education, and petitions. It is not only appreciated by Hoosiers but we get traffic from all over the country using our resources for exemptions.
- 24/7 access to education on exemptions including sample forms, educational videos, blogs and so much more.
- 12+ in person exemptions trainings, and another 10+ online exemptions trainings
- Nearly 5,000 Hoosiers have been part of one of our many exemption trainings
- Thousands of emails with updates, education, and encouragement
- 70,000 text messages sent to engage and activate Hoosiers in the development of Medical Liberty policy.
- Monthly Zoom meetings. Including an upgraded meeting space to accommodate 1000 participants after we outgrew the old platform.
- Education on the political process, how to navigate the Statehouse etc
- Educational literature and handouts for rallies, events, and seminars.
Some of our work has not cost a dime, lets celebrate that too!
- Building community and a network of Medical Liberty Warriros
- Connecting citizens with their legislators
- Streamlining communication for attorneys and plaintiffs in the Ascension case
- Connecting citizens with legal counsel when needed.
- Utilizing social media to elicit change
- Training 600 Hoosiers in Confrontational politics by the Foundation for Applied Conservative Leadership
- and so much more…
We couldn't be more grateful for the way the state has pulled together in order to defend our Medical Liberties.
While we celebrate this, we do ask that you take a moment and consider becoming a monthly donor.
As you can see we have been hard at work and will continue to be, as we grow so do our costs.
Text messaging has been revolutionary to the liberty movement and we are so happy to be able to provide quick alerts for our members especially when only about 20% of the emails we send are read.
Text messaging has made a remarkable impact on the speed and EASE of which Hoosiers participate in politics.
We hope you will continue to support these efforts!
Some of you may be able to donate $100, $50, or $25 per month, but know that donations of $10 monthly make a huge difference!
If you are already a member you can easily edit your donating preferences. If you need help, please reply to this email.
If you are not yet a member please do so now and consider the possibilities if you decide to donate monthly.
Thank you again, for all that you do. Merry Christmas, from my family to yours.
