Anderson: Changes to The Healthcare Right of Conscience Act dictate our personal liberties

State Senator Neil Anderson has released the following statement following the Senate passage of Senate Bill 1169, which narrows the scope of The Healthcare Right of Conscience Act:

“This is not about safety, this is about control. For the last 19 months our healthcare workers and first responders have worked on the frontlines of COVID-19. Passing this bills shows the Majority party’s arrogance and is a direct attack on our constitutional rights and livelihoods.

“We have asked for months from the governor, ruling by fiat, pushing his mandates over and over to be a part of the decision making process. My colleagues and I have filed legislation where I sit at the Chief co-sponsor, asking for the two equal co-branches of government to have a seat at the table.

“Passing this bill is government dictating when and where your personal liberties start and stop.”
