Here is what Steans introduced to Illinois 101st General Assembly, to be tentatively made effective January 2022:
The bill amends the School Code, and takes away every parent's religious exemption to any and all vaccinations and other medical examinations required by the state. Anyone who doesn't follow along with the list of vaccine mandates will not be allowed to let their child attend public schools, day care, private schools, and parochial schools. With this dictate, the state is literally claiming ownership over your child's body, allowing pharmaceutical companies to impose liability-free biologics on all children, with no rights or recourse for parents.
This is not a pro-vaccine versus anti-vaccine debate. This is the state government taking away your rights as a parent, while dictating the doctor/patient relationship. The state government and the pharmaceutical industry are using your child's education as leverage to force you to do what they want!
No college either
The bill also removes an individual's religious exemption to vaccination at the college level. Anyone entering an Illinois college will be forced to show proof that they received all vaccinations required by the government. If you object to the vaccines required, you won't be able to pursue a degree in the state of Illinois.
IL adds HPV vaccine to growing list of vaccine mandates
Not surprisingly, the Illinois House introduced Bill 4870 at the same time as this bill. HB4870 would amend the Communicable Disease Prevention Act to require students of any public, private, or parochial school to succumb to HPV vaccines in order to enter sixth grade. This bill adds the HPV vaccination to the expanding list of required vaccines for school entrance. If SB 3668 passes, the government will be able to mandate whatever they want, and you, the parent, will not have a choice in the matter!
Religious exemption only safeguard left for parents in IL, but parents shouldn't have to beg the government because the government doesn't own their child
The religious exemption is the only statutory safeguard left in Illinois to protect a parent's right to choose what is best for their child. There is currently no Parental Bill of Rights to protect parents from the scourge of pharmaceutical mandates that continue to be introduced as statutes under the law. Parents should not have to beg the government for an exemption to a biologic injection that has well documented risks.
Parents should not have to beg any authority for an exemption to any pharmaceutical decree. It should be the other way around. Any authority should have to beg each and every parent before biologics are administered or any other medical procedure. In other states, pupil dilation of newborns, dental checkups, physicals, forced vasectomies, are just a few medical procedures that have been proposed as mandatory when medical freedom is stripped from the individual. When the rights of the individual and the rights of the parent are stripped, then industries will use the government to force you to do whatever they want!
In Illinois, parents can currently choose a religious exemption to some or all vaccines, whatever is best for their situation. In Illinois, this exemption must be obtain from a doctor. In other states, parents have the ultimate say and do not have to explain their religious exemption with a doctor.
The bill is segregation toward certain children, imposing financial burden on families who do not bend to every mandate
Each and every vaccine should be a private matter and not subject to interference by the government. However, SB3668 removes all religious freedom from biologics and pharmaceutical products, segregating families from a public education if they do not comply with all injections required by the state. This bill clearly and plainly segregates perfectly normal kids from an education. These children should not be treated as an inferior race.
This bill puts extreme financial pressure on parents, limiting their income potential because they must make other arrangements for their child's education. Parents affected by this level of discrimination and segregation should be able to sue the government because the government is restricting their freedom of movement and freedom to participate in society. Moreover, persecuted families should get compensation for the financial burden that results from accommodating such longstanding segregation.
Medical exemptions will be defined by the ACIP, ignoring previous vaccine injuries and family history of medical issues
With parental rights vanished, this bill will only allow specific "medical exemptions" to vaccination - exemptions that are defined by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). The ACIP gets to decide whether vaccines are contraindicated for your child. The ACIP contraindications are extremely limited and do not include numerous serious contraindications that are listed on the vaccine insert. The ACIP does not accommodate for the medical history, previous vaccine injuries, and many medical disabilities in your family. Annual renewals for medical exemption would place a serious financial burden upon families and make parents subservient to an authoritarian pharmaceutical government. This interferes with and violates doctor/parent/patient relationship and personal sovereignty.
Bill "empowers" young children to defy their parents in matters of important medical decision-making
Moreover, this bill takes vaccination force to a new coercive level, encouraging children 14 years or older to defy their parents and seek vaccinations that the parents have not authorized. Senator Steans believes this "empowers" youth. This provision in the new bill is a form of manipulation, teaching adolescents to defy a parent or guardian in serious matters of medical decision-making.
Regardless of whether the parent or guardian consents to the administration of the biologic, children can secretly be injected with whatever they have been convinced to get, and parents and children will have to live with any consequences of the secretive act.
No privacy with vaccine decisions, HIPPA laws violated
This bill also amends the Immunization Data Registry Act, giving the government more power to track vaccine compliance by mandating that information be entered into the immunization registry data, with no choice to opt out.
This bill also amends the Communicable Disease Prevention Act, and removes language providing that the Act does not apply if a parent or guardian of a child objects to immunization of his or her child for conflicting with his or her religious tenets or practices. With this amendment, public health authorities can declare an "outbreak" even if a few people are experiencing a benign infection. The government can use this outbreak to forfeit any religious objections to vaccination in the community, targeting all individuals with hysteria-generated mandatory vaccine campaigns with no way to legally object.
Vaccine manufacturers can reintroduce mercury to vaccines
This bill erroneously repeals the Mercury-Free Vaccination Act, allowing vaccine manufacturers to again use mercury in their formulations.
Parents can be charged with "medical neglect" and separated from their child for refusing vaccine dictates
This bill also removes language providing that a child shall not be considered neglected or abused for the sole reason that specified persons failed to vaccinate, delayed vaccination, or refused vaccination for the child due to a waiver on religious grounds. This omission essentially allows any authority figure to report parents to the Child Protective Services if they do not vaccinate, potentially stripping custody away from parents for an accusation called medical neglect.
If you choose not get the HPV vaccine for your sixth grader, for example, you could be charged with neglect by an overzealous doctor, nurse or authority figure. It is not "neglect" to forgo a vaccine that you do not consider important for your child. This is an attempt to intimidate parents and shame them for making their own informed choice. As bad as all the segregation is, this provision is the most egregious part of the new bill.
Senator Steans is not the ultimate decider for what goes into your child
Senators should be introducing legislation to protect people form this kind of coercion. Instead they openly permit it. SHAME ON ANYONE WHO VOTES FOR THIS BILL AND SHAME ON SENATOR STEANS FOR BEING A SPINELESS PUPPET. STEANS is not the ultimate decision-maker for the vaccines and medical procedures for every child in the state. STEANS needs to be humbled for daring to introduce a bill that treats parents as if they are subjects. STEANS should be removed from office for daring to treat unvaccinated children as some inferior race that must be either forcibly injected like dogs or segregated like from the rest of the public.
I demand the senator reverse course immediately and introduce a Parent's Bill of Rights, upholding religious and philosophical freedom for all parents to decline any biologic or medical procedure that they conscientiously disagree with.
Legislature should be protecting public from the very segregation and forced drugging that Steans has introduced
The legislature should be working overtime to protect all parent's conscientious, religious, medical, philosophical, and scientific freedom to refuse any biologic they do not want for their self or their children.

Encourage your representative to adopt a Parent's Bill of Rights to enshrine fundamental human rights into law to protect against future mandates.
Your representative can help by urging the United States Congress to propose and submit to the states for ratification an amendment to the U.S. Constitution enumerating a fundamental parental right. It is time for the 2020 Legislature to lead the way by passing the Parents Bill of Rights which enumerates all of the existing rights scattered through the state statutes into one section of law so that parents can have an easy way to reference and understand the significant protections that the Legislature has historically preserved for ALL parents. By supporting this measure, your rep can send a clear message to all families that they respect family diversity, favor inclusivity, and acknowledge the fundamental role of parents in directing the upbringing, education and care of their precious children.
