Administrative Rules Public Comments
I want to change the world but I don’t know how! How do I submit public comments? We have provided the email addresses but the hardest part can be that blank screen and blinking cursor. What do you say? We have provided several examples of comments made by active HFI members to help.
Rainee Saunders offered to share her letter to legislators and administrators publicly for our readers.
Greetings honorable legislators and administrative agency professionals:
I am gravely concerned about upcoming proposed rules with regard to the following:
- Parental choice for immunizations
- Over reach from the Idaho Department of Public Health Department through CPS
- Mandatory medical testing on newborn babies
I earnestly request that you take into consideration my position on these areas. I am opposed to government or legislative intervention, and am a staunch proponent of health freedom without mandates put into place which would restrict the right of anyone to make those decisions for themselves. When there are risks to medical treatment, there must be education, transparency, protection and choice for citizens, not rules that cater to agencies, corporations, and government operations.
Please reference the following dockets:
IDAPA 16 Department of Health and Welfare Docket 16-0000-1900
16.02.11 Immunizations of children attending licensed daycare facilities in Idaho
IDAPA 16 Department of Health and Welfare Docket 16-000-1900f
The proposed measures in these documents represent a clear violation of human rights as they go beyond the scope of the law and seek to coerce and bully parents into compliance. These violate Informed Consent, bodily autonomy, and allow agencies to operate outside the scope of the U.S. Constitution to permit activities which represent investigations conducted without due process and which nullify liberties protected by RIGHT of PROPERTY and PURSUIT OF LIFE.
They also directly violate innocent-until proven-guilty precepts and give preference and protection to criminals – one example being the CPS system which removes children from loving homes under false pretense and places them in foster care where abusers and pedophiles are granted access to children legally.
Thank you for your consideration.
Here’s another example from an active HFI member:
Dear Idaho Administrative Agency and Legislators.
As a temporary admin rule, this does not benefit the public, where there are clear medical risks, there must be clear and disclosed informed consent. This is not the case for the rules regarding mandatory vaccinations, coercion in the medical professionals.
I believe that immunizations should be a parental choice. And exemptions should be clearly expressed disclosed as informed consent at each encounter of mentioning vaccine recommendations and NOT MANDATES. The meningitis rule to MANDATORY FOR “Student” is in clear violation of statute if it hasn’t been changed.
CPS agencies are acting outside the scope of the US Constitution and the IDAHO Constitution
There is clear violations of Basic Human Rights as protected by the US Constitution when parents are investigated by child protective services without due process of law, no clear crime committed and guilty until proven innocent and all hearing completed behind closed doors with little to no outside support. These children are being traumatized time and time again by being removed PRIOR TO CLEAR CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS. Criminals have more rights than these children and in many cases these parents are NOT ACTING CRIMINALLY. I am VERY concerned about the overstep of the Health Department through the department of child protective services.
Finally any forced medical testing on anyone including adults children and especially newborns, is clear violation of informed consent and the freedom and liberties PROTECTED BY THE Right of PROPERTY AND PURSUIT OF LIFE.
NOTHING SHOULD EVER BE MANDATED WHEN IT COMES TO ANYTHING PERTAINING TO THE BODY. ONES OWN BODILY AUTONOMY IS ONE OF THE FUNDAMENTAL BASIC GOD GIVEN RIGHTS AND SHOULD NOT BE REGULATED AT ANY LEVEL.
These rules are NOT EMERGENCY AND IDAHO IS A FREE REPUBLIC AND THE PEOPLE DO NOT WISH TO MANDATE THESE THINGS ACCORDING TO FEDERAL RECOMMENDATIONS FROM AGENCIES WITH CLEAR CONFLICTS OF INTEREST AND WHERE THE STATE LOCAL AGENCIES CLEARLY BENEFIT WITH BUDGET PERKS AND FUNDING BENEFITS.
Thank you for your prompt attention and corrective action.
Please remove these unnecessary rules and alleviate the burden on the state citizen and fiscal responsibilities of these administrative rules. Please seek alternative legislation that ensures basic fundamental liberties are maintained and not violated. These and other like rules are unconstitutional and hindering public trust in the legislative process.
