SB 866 is still waiting for a vote on the Floor of the State Assembly. Meanwhile, your involvement and advocacy on behalf of parental rights has had a HUGE impact on this process.
Just this morning, June 8th, Assemblyman Patrick O’Donnell publicly posted a summary of his thoughts on SB 866. He states that “S.B. 866 is an overreach… parents have the primary role in raising their children and participating in their medical decisions”. While Assemblyman O’Donnell points out that he is very pro-vaccine, he cannot endorse the invasion of parental rights that SB 866 poses.
This public statement of opposition from Assemblyman O’Donnell is a huge victory! He is the Chair of the Education Committee, a powerful position within the Assembly. Hopefully this statement will drive other Assembly Members to consider their position on SB 866 more deeply.
Please call your Assembly Representative if you have not done so already, and continue to pray for those that will be voting on this dangerous bill in the near future. The vote could take place as soon as tomorrow, June 9th.
