ICAN wins religious exemption decision in Mississippi: Why this matters
This is a critical first step to enabling a NATIONWIDE religious opt out of vaccination requirements for kids to attend school. It should now be just a matter of time until this is nationwide.
Here’s the announcement of the win:
The federal court ruling that the First Amendment requires that, by 7/15/23, the State of Mississippi afford its residents a religious exemption for their children to attend school without one or more state mandated vaccines!
If the state appeals and ICAN wins again, the decision will apply to all Fifth Circuit states. If they appeal again to SCOTUS and win, it applies to all states.
If the state doesn’t appeal, lawyers in other states have an opportunity to leverage the decision and take it upwards to SCOTUS.
I think it is just a matter of time before this ruling applies to the entire US.
That’s what makes it so important.
Congratulations to ICAN, Aaron Siri, and Del Bigtree on a very important win!
