District 2

John Green

Regarding the rights of government and the rights of citizens: 

The Government has no "rights". All rights are inherent in citizens. The government has to keep citizens apprised as to risks dangers of anything that might adversely affect their health or safety. Citizens have a right to such information.

Regarding informed consent:

I believe we have an inalienable right to determine our own course when it comes to health care, which includes using any substance available if we determine that it will improve our health, protect us from disease, or benefit our quality of life. I believe parents have an inalienable right and an absolute duty, to make health care and education decisions on behalf of their children. Informed consent is usually the safest option, and it should be required if there is any doubt as to the safety of any procedure or conduct that affects the public. The proper role of government is to protect the lives, liberty and property of its citizens. Informed consent is a good tool for the government to exercise that duty. 



District 5A

Hari Heath

Regarding informed consent: 

Informed should mean honest accurate information not the usual biased or fraudulent "facts" Consent means voluntary action including the ability to effectively say no.


Regarding licensing of practitioners

The state should end licensing and move it to professional associations who regulate their members to maintain their reputations, ending state-sanctioned monopolies and opening free choice in a few markets.

District 11A

Josh Gibbons

Regarding the licensing of holistic practitioners:

I do not believe government intrusion into the free market is the best solution. As a consumer, choosing any medical treatment, I should make an informed decision based on recommendations and credentials when I choose to seek help. I believe in free market self-policing.

Regarding informed consent and parental rights

At the end of the day, you alone are responsible for the health of your family. The government has no business intruding into how you seek to heal or maintain your health.


District 11B

Tammy Nichols

Regarding CPS involvement when medical treatment is refused.

Parents always have the right to make medical decisions, and what is in the best interest for their children. The HD (Health Department) and CPS are not the parents and should only intervene when clear abuse and/or neglect are occurring. 

Regarding holistic licensing

I believe that over licensing and regulation is occurring and that the free market will do the best job overall. 


District 25A

Glenneda Zuiderveld

Regarding CPS involvement over treatment of a gravely ill child

Parents have the ultimate right.  It is not the governments roll to regulate this. 

Regarding the rights of parents and the government

I am for parental choice and health choice.  The original purpose of government is to preserve liberties not to restrict and regulate our freedoms to choose. 



District 25B

Lyle Johnstone

Regarding Holistic Healthcare Licensing

Does this type licensing improve quality of care? Or is it limiting quality people that would be able readily pass licensing? Is it for the Business of licensing?!

Regarding the vaccine exemption form

IN FAVOR of a bill of clarification



District 32

Chad Christensen
learn more about Chad at his campaign website: http://chadforidaho.org/

Regarding Parental Rights

I am against the intrusion of privacy by the government. The government needs to stay out of my parenting. It needs to cease trying to be a nanny and thinking they know best for my children and me. I am for absolute freedom of choice in regards to medical issues of my family. Except for blatant child abuse (physical and sexual), the government should have no authority over my children. The government should always receive permission from its people to operate and perform tasks. The government continually oversteps its boundaries year after year. A strong line in the sand needs to be drawn. I have inalienable rights whether the government recognizes them or not.
