Indiana’s attorney general is doubling-down on his insistence that parents, and not schools, make the decisions for kids.

Todd Rokita issued a new Parents Rights memo, this week, focusing on vaccines.

Rokita says there are no statewide requirements that kids get the coronavirus shot, and said parents have an absolute right to make healthcare decisions for their children.

Rokita said in his open letter that schools should play a “supporting role,” and that parents “lead in raising and educating our children.”

“Indiana’s attorney general is doubling-down on his insistence that parents, and not schools, make the decisions for kids.”

The fact that the state AG has to point this out speaks volumes as to exactly how bad our “schools” have become.

Rokita would prefer the parents be brainwashed by QAnon before he turns them over to teach their kids the real meaning of bigotry.

Ironically, your feeble attack reeks of bigotry.
