By the looks of this letter, it would appear Iowa Leadership is doing nothing to prevent vaccine passports from becoming a real possibility. This messaging is saying they support censoring information that discusses risks with vaccines which in turn inhibits true informed consent considering public health entities are not discussing the risks and only perceived benefits. If they are not talking about the real risks associated with Coronavirus vaccines, someone has to.

Scientists are divided on whether or not this vaccine will end the pandemic. Should we be relying on a pharmaceutical that has no liability or long term safety so heavily?

We find it interesting that posts on social media that are rooted in scientific fact and sourced from CDC, WHO, FDA get fact checked and labeled as misinformation but posts lying about the safety and efficacy of the vaccines being 100% with nothing to back it up do not have the same level of scrutiny.

We, too, are trying to combat misinformation and it’s much more dangerous when it’s in the hands of unelected public health entities with no accountability. We are not the reason vaccine hesitancy is growing, it’s growing because the claims of safety and efficacy are not truthful or backed up by scientific data readily given to the public and people are starting to see that.

If you find this at all troubling, contact your legislator and voice your concerns. We must uphold free speech!
