Senator Kelly Hancock (SD 9) is a member of the Senate Committee on Health and Human Services, a powerful Committee when it comes to your medical liberties. As an organ transplant recipient himself, one would expect that Senator Hancock would be sensitive to discrimination against patients seeking life-saving medical care. Instead, during a recent vote on a medical liberty bill in the HHS Committee, Senator Hancock attempted to emotionally manipulate his fellow members by calling on his experience with organ donation, and using it to justify forcing vaccines on transplant and oncology patients. He then went one step further by equating individuals and businesses, saying that small businesses are owned by individuals and any attempt to tell them that they can’t mandate vaccines on their employees is a violation of their individual liberties.
If you think employees ought to have the right to medical privacy and informed consent, and that patients – regardless of their medical need – should not face medical discrimination based on their vaccination status, let Senator Hancock know! Contact his office today!
