AB 1117

THIS bill will ensure big $$$$$$$ for medi-cal plans and doctors.  All they have to do is fully vaccinate more children by age 2.  Isn't that lovely?  Your child's health can be compromised by lining his or her white-coated god's pockets with gold.
If you're able to stop this mutilation of young children's health, please know that the Senate Health Committee his hearing this bill on July 1, 2015 at 1:30 in room 4203.  The protestors will wear red to show their opposition.  (Doing things like that is always a good idea since often we can't speak.  The visual is there, so they know without a word.)
Here's the bill:
