The 3 Topics that will be the focus of Health Freedom Idaho this session are

NATUROPATHIC LICENSING
HEALTH FREEDOM IDAHO POSITION: OPPOSITION


  • Licensing through the state is not necessary, and is not time or cost effective.
  • Licensing restricted to a few accredited schools would stifle and eventually destroy naturopathy in Idaho. This exclusivity would soon drive out competition, new ideas, and new practices that are the lifeblood of our state and country.
  • This would create unemployment for most of the naturopaths in Idaho.
REPEAL OF “FAITH HEALING” EXEMPTION
HEALTH FREEDOM IDAHO POSITION: OPPOSITION

  • Removing this exemption is in violation of the constitution. The first amendment states that, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
  • Alternative treatment choices by parents for their children should not be criminalized.
  • Parents actively seeking healing and/or treatment for their child in means that differ from the AMA should not be subject to criminal charges of abuse or neglect. A recent Johns Hopkins study shows that medical errors are the 3rd leading cause of death in our nation. There are already specific Idaho statutes in place to protect children from intentional physical abuse.
IDHW IMMUNIZATION EXEMPTION FORM
HEALTH FREEDOM IDAHO POSITION: OPPOSITION

Idaho Statute permits a parent/guardian:
1. The right to choose whether to vaccinate their child
2. The right to choose to participate or decline participation in the state vaccine registry system
(IRIS).
  • IDHW REFUSES to accept the legally approved signed parental affidavits forcing schools to deny admission to children. Parents enrolling children in schools and daycare are being forced to complete IDHW’s mandatory immunization form. The form is designed to make parents state they are guilty of medical neglect, denies parents' legally protected medical privacy, and violates their legally protected right to opt out of the State Registry.
  • Idaho Department of Health and Welfare has imposed IDAPA RULE 16.02.15 (110.02), creating the mandatory IDAHO CERTIFICATE OF IMMUNIZATION EXEMPTION for school and daycare admission.
  • However, the only requirement of parents under Idaho Code is stated in 39-4802(2): to "submit a signed statement to school officials stating an objection on religious or other grounds.” The state-prescribed form, based on IDAPA 16.02.15, is in violation of Code 39-4802 and 39-4804. The form developed by IDHW falls far outside the scope of Idaho Code 39-1118(2)and 39-4802(2).
