Thinking Moms' Revolution
The Thinking Moms’ Revolution
“The Thinking Moms’ Revolution is made up of twenty-three moms and one brave dad. Their group stretches from Montana to Malaysia to Montreal. While parenting children with autism spectrum disorder, chronic childhood diseases and disabilities, they came together to collaborate about biomedical, alternative healing modalities and dietary interventions, as well as doctors and researchers developing cutting edge treatments. In the process, they became a tight-knit family dedicated to helping their children lose their diagnoses.”
The Informed Mama
The Informed Mama
“The informed mama was started by a medical professional who fully believed in vaccination until her children were injured. She is now dedicated to helping families obtain real science and help those whom have been bullied by their doctors.”
Modern Alternative Mama
Modern Alternative Mama
“MAM is a safe space where mothers gather, share information, and think together. We believe in moms. We know that they do what is best for their families, because they are the ones who do the research, make the choices, and who simply care the most about many of these areas. (Of course, dads are welcome too!)
Moms, especially those who make alternative choices, are really in a unique position right now. Our society isn’t kind to people who step outside the boundaries of “normal.” And moms often feel like what they’re doing isn’t quite right, but that they don’t have access to the information and support that they need to do what they do feel is right.”

HOW TO OPT-OUT
Congratulations! You’ve read the books. You’ve watched the documentaries. You’ve reviewed the science. Most importantly, you’ve listened to your gut which has led you to the decision to stop vaccinating your children.
So, now what?
The first thing everyone needs to know is that NOWHERE IN AMERICA IS IT ILLEGAL TO NOT VACCINATE!
If you are an adult that has made the decision to not receive any more vaccines, great! That’s all that needs to be done.
If you have children in public school, you will need to file an exemption in order for them to continue their public education. This is when you should connect with your state’s medical freedom group. They can help you obtain an exemption for your state. Each state has vastly different laws in regard to vaccination so contacting your local organization is always the best plan of action.
There are three types of exemptions:
All states have medical exemptions, but these are extremely hard to come by. They are generally reserved for children who have had a severe, immediate reaction (such as anaphylaxis) to a prior vaccine.
All states except California, Mississippi, and West Virginia have religious exemptions as well. This type of exemption varies greatly between states. Some states have a simple form that you fill out, have notarized, and turn in. Others, like New York, have a complicated legal process which can last many months. The wide range of religious exemption procedures illustrates the importance of connecting with your local medical freedom groups.
Please know that the Supreme Court’s decision in United States v. Seeger listed religion as a “belief that is sincere and meaningful [and] occupies a place in the life of its possessor parallel to that filled by the orthodox belief in God of one who clearly qualifies for the exemption.”(1)
This means that you don’t necessarily need to be a practicing follower of organized religion in order to obtain a religious exemption.
A philosophical exemption is a best-case scenario for opting your child out of vaccines, as it allows parents the right to make a choice based on personal beliefs. Every state should have a philosophical exemption because vaccine-choice is a basic human right. Unfortunately, only 17 states allow parents this option. The graphic below will give you a quick overview of your state’s exemptions, but please visit www.nvic.org for a more detailed explanation of each state’s laws.
Note for homeschoolers: Some states still require exemptions for homeschooling. Please check with your state’s homeschooling organization!
FIND YOUR TRIBE
Social Media is a great way to connect with local, like-minded parents.
Simply search for your state and these keywords:
- Health Choice
- Health Freedom
- Vaccine Choice
- Medical Freedom
- Parents Against Vaccines
- Vaccine Coalition
This search should lead you to a few pages or groups to find your community support system. It is not easy going against the mainstream with any parenting decision and opting out of vaccines is often met with intense misinformed vitriol. Hence, why it is necessary to find your tribe.
I promised someone before I got CrazyMothers going that I would make sure to include information on how to opt-out of vaccines, but more importantly, how to become an advocate.
It’s really, pretty simple. You just have to talk about it!
Find your tribe and jump in. You don’t have to be loud, you just have to be passionate. If you’ve decided to stop vaccinating your children, then you’ve done your research. Why wouldn’t you want to share this knowledge with other parents?
Challenge yourself to bring it up with your friends and let them know your decision.
Challenge yourself to post once a month about it on social media.
Challenge yourself to become active with your state group and start showing up in support or opposition of bills.
Just challenge yourself.
This movement is growing by the day, but we need more advocates to help us get the word out. We need more logical, informed, science-driven, brave parents to step up to the plate in order to ensure that our rights will remain intact.
Our exemptions are threatened during every congressional session. In this session, numerous states have put forth bills to mandate vaccination in some way. If more parents don’t start speaking up, we run the risk of losing our right to choose what medical procedures are done to our children.
We can’t let that happen.
