O’Donnell Statement Regarding SB 866

For immediate release:

“I consider myself a pro-vaxxer and have been vaccinated, boosted and have had COVID-19 twice. Further, I support vaccination requirements for public health purposes. However, S.B. 866 is an overreach.

“Therefore, if and when S.B. 866 comes up for a vote on the Assembly Floor, I will not be supporting it for a number of reasons. First, parents have the primary role in raising their children and participating in their medical decisions; the state should be very cautious when attempting to infringe upon that.

“Further, we must ask ourselves if this bill is the beginning of a slippery slope…will more laws come forward to disallow parental involvement in making decisions about their minor children?”
