Group holds anti-vaccination protest in Hartford

News

Vaccinations are a controversial topic in Connecticut right now with certain lawmakers pushing to remove the religious exception, while others fight for it.

Protesters representing Informed Choice CT gathered in Hartford Friday morning, outside Attorney General William Tong‘s office.

And it didn’t stop there. They continued to protest marching to the Department of Public Health.

“We’re here today protesting an unconstitutional law of the state to try to take away our religious freedoms. So I have this sign that says religious freedoms are civil freedoms. Religious rights are civil rights,” said Shannon Gamach, Ashford.

 “Well there needs to be a seperation between church and state, number one. No one should ever have to explain their religious beliefs or what their creed is to their government,” said  LeeAnn Ducat, Founder of Informed Choice CT.

Protesters call it  irresponsible to kick students out of schools who religiously object vaccinations.
