🔥 Urgent! Protect Health Freedom in Massachusetts.
Oppose SAPHE 2.0 the “Statewide Accelerated Public Health for Every Community Act” as written.

Ask Statehouse Leadership, the Joint Committee on Ways and Means, and your own legislators to OPPOSE the Passage of “Statewide Accelerated Public Health for Every Community Act” (aka SAPHE 2.0) as written and to request that this bill be returned to the relevant committees for further study or amended as suggested to address the defects/issues outlined below.

Please enter your info below to queue up the legislators and send them an email. You can edit it before sending. We highly recommend you personalize the first few sentences and the subject line. Thank you for taking action to protect health freedom! 

The bill as written poses several problems:

  • Disempowers local boards of health to manage their own local situations, compelling them to comply with national standards (whatever they may be) if they wish to receive federal funds to improve public health services.
  • It violates the separation of powers by granting to another body the power to make law. This bill would unconstitutionally delegate the lawmaking power to a private corporation.
  • Establishing “a minimum set of public health services, including, but not limited to, public health programs and foundational capabilities” is more than merely implementing policy; rather, it is the making of policy.

  • It has dangerously broad language that authorizes unelected officials, namely the Commissioners of Public Health and of Environmental Protection, to organize “public health responses” on the basis of an “outbreak of disease” or a “health care situation important public health.” These vague, ill-defined terms grant dangerously broad powers that would affect every MA resident to two unelected government officials, without legislative oversight.

  • Allows for increased surveillance and tracking of individuals, eroding medical/personal privacy.

It is now known that many COVID pandemic mandates and restrictions—despite bold promises of benefit to the public made at the time—ultimately proved ill-advised and harmful to individuals and the community. Lost jobs, bankrupted businesses, physical injury, psychological distress, isolation of dying family members, neglect of routine health maintenance care, and delays in children’s development are among the harmful effects. Caution, discernment, and localized responses are needed going forward, not increased powers for unelected officials to enact widescale mandates that bypass individual and community decision-making.

Note: Do not use apartment or unit numbers. If the system can not find your legislator please try using your full nine-digit zip code. Please report any issues to info.nhfa@nationalhealthfreedom.org.
