What is a religious exemption?

Greetings from snowy Iowa,

Its been snowing here for almost 24 hours, roads are snow & ice covered, so its a good day to stay home, watch TV & so some research.

As the Autism One conference quickly approaches I think back to the conference last year when the most common question was "How do I write a religious exemption?"  This question was answered to the satisfaction of the people asking that question.

I was recently contacted by a mom from New York.  She wanted to get a religious exemption from vaccines.  She went thru the process before but was denied.  So she wanted to try again with a letter that I composed & sent to her via email.

After much prayer & bible study, I was able to put together a letter.  She submitted the letter to the school system the first part of January.  To date she hasn't heard from them.  This can be good or bad.  On the good side, her child is safe from vaccines until they make a decision based on a strongly held religious belief.  On the bad side, the school system lawyers could be trying to find a way around what I had proven scripturally.

Below is the letter I sent to this mom.  The parts of the letter in parentheses is what needs to be changed to personalize it for the parents individual needs.

You are free to use this letter for your children & pass it along to other parents as well that are looking for a religious exemption that is available in 48 out of 50 states.

Until next time,


                                                                                                              (put the date up here)

To Whom It May Concern,

I am claiming a religious exemption as granted to me in (your state law section here)  – as the parent of (name the child here) I have a strongly held belief that it is against my religion to vaccinate my child.

Vaccines have unclean animals in them per Lev. 11.  (pork, dog parts, monkey kidney cells)

Vaccines also contain aborted fetus cells.  (WI-38, MRC5, human serum albumin)  I sincerely believe that abortion is murder & God knew us before we were formed in the womb, Jer. 1:5

Our bodies are a temple to the holy spirit.  (1 Cor. 6:19)   God designed us with an immune system, he doesn't need help from man.

I thank the New York school district for granting this religious exemption.
