Religious Exemptions

“Your job or your conscience”
“Your education or your convictions.”

You are in a situation where your employer has given you a choice to either submit to an abortion-derived vaccine or lose your job. Or maybe your child must take an abortion-derived vaccine to attend school or participate in scouts or athletics. These are choices that no free American should ever have to make. This circumstance violates your God-given conscience and your deep religious convictions.

Do not despair. Do not give up. Do not quit. Do not compromise.

God is in control even though it seems like the world has gone mad. He is still in charge. He gave you your conscience to refuse vaccines made from or with aborted fetal cell lines. He will enable you to find a way to keep your conscience clear before Him.

The Good News is that the U.S. Constitution and the Law is on your side.

Here are some tips to help you write a religious exemption letter for your employer.

PARENTAL RIGHTS

No Shots, No School. Not True!

According to the law, Missouri Statute 167.181 speaks of the immunization of pupils against certain diseases, but Section 3 says that this, “shall not apply to any child if one parent or guardian objects in writing to his school administrator against the immunization of the child, because of religious beliefs or medical contraindications.” 

For the non-medical exemption, it is your right to write your own letter directly to the school administrator. You do not need to go through the local Health Department.

You can reference this statute (167.181 Section 3) in your letter and quote it along with a listing of the vaccines you’re claiming exemption for. Going into your reasons for not vaccinating can actually work against you.

The Missouri Constitution also protects your rights of conscience so being asked for explanation or if you belong to a certain religious group is completely irrelevant. See below Section 5:

Section 5. Religious freedom – liberty of conscience and belief – limitations – right to pray – academic religious freedoms and prayer. That all men and women have a natural and indefeasible right to worship Almighty God according to the dictates of their own consciences; that no human authority can control or interfere with the rights of conscience;…
