Anti-Vaxxer Parents Celebrate Defeat of Bill That Would Have Required Life-Saving Vaccinations for Children in New Jersey
A bill that would have required children to have life-saving vaccinations, and not allow religious objections to the vaccinations, failed in New Jersey (VIDEO BELOW).
Hundreds of anti-vaccination parents loudly protested outside the Statehouse in Trenton, while a vote on the bill was called off because the state Senate fell one vote short, reports NJ.com.
The defeat of the bill brought cheers from those who oppose mandatory vaccinations, which save lives:

The BATTLE OF TRENTON II. Yesterday history repeated itself as The Health Freedom Movement struck down S2173. The original battle in 1776 was a small victory but is credited with being a turning point for the revolution. #BeBrave #Winning #JerseyStrong https://t.co/X7A2SgZMjI— Del Bigtree (@delbigtree) January 14, 2020
Yesterday was a historical win for medical freedom. New Jersey legislators tried to take away religious exemptions for vaccines for the second time, but 10 THOUSAND protesters showed up and killed the bill! I am so proud of New Jersey. #jerseystrong pic.twitter.com/CpsjvG0th2— Aliya M (@AliyaMcreynolds) January 14, 2020
