#TyrannySquad Queen Rep. Donna Howard is, yet again, searching for ways to increase the profits for vaccine manufacturers. This time, she is targeting vulnerable college students with HB 989. On its face, HB 989 seems benign – commissioning the creation of a state strategy plan for lowering HPV rates among young adults. However, during this bill’s hearing in March, Rep. Howard made her ultimate goal very clear as she willfully misrepresented its language. She stated that the bill would require the state to promote increased immunization as a means to prevent HPV and cancer on college campuses; though this text is not in the bill, TFVC was unsurprised and fully prepared to speak about this potential during the hearing.
Now it’s YOUR turn to speak up and keep this bill from moving forward. Read below for how to make your voice heard! Tell members of the Higher Education Committee not to allow the state to promote Gardasil for college students.

The people of Texas do not support this bill. We do not need yet more experimental drugs given the college age young people. Their supposed prevention is nothing but another way to enrich those that have invested in the pharmaceutical companies and can have very negative effects on our college age students.
I apposed billHP 989. It cause infertility and other medical problems.
The people of Texas do NOT support this bill. There are too many children and adolescents that have been vax harmed all for the pharma companies to make billions and billions more.
This HAS to stop!
