A Declaration of Older Folks, Age 50 and Up, Standing for Health Freedom During COVID-19

A Stand for Health Freedom Campaign Inspired by Peter Breggin MD, Ginger Breggin and Jean Ross - Ages 84, 69 and 94

Each declaration is automatically sent to your governor and state lawmakers. Members of the U.S. Congress will receive a copy after the new session starts.

The Declaration

I understand that because I have lived 50 years or more that I am considered to be at greater risk of becoming ill and even dying from COVID-19. I also understand that if I am suffering from other illnesses, I may be even more vulnerable. Nevertheless—

I do not want the freedom of our citizens curtailed in order to protect me. I do not want the schools shut, depriving and frightening our children and youth, when only older people are at serious risk. I do not want people told they cannot work, businesses forced to shut down and churches closed. No one should be told how many people can gather in a private home, and no one should be stopped from crossing state borders whenever they wish. I want a restoration of constitutional rights in America — and an end to the shutdowns and restrictions forced upon us in the name of COVID-19 and protecting those at greater risk. We want our country back!

Older Americans care deeply about maintaining their independence, and they value their freedom. We will take care of ourselves, manage our own affairs, and avail ourselves of any voluntary services offered by the community or government, always retaining the right to make our own healthcare choices.

We reject living in fear. It breaks our hearts to see Americans made so afraid that they give up their liberty and their freedom to think independently and to openly debate public health measures. We want our children and grandchildren, and all Americans, to live again in the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Note: Although the risk of fatality from COVID-19 is markedly different for those in their ‘50s and those in their ‘80s, we’re including individuals starting at 50 because that’s when the CDC shows the risk of fatality starts to rise. This inclusion gives more adults the opportunity to join the declaration. Please only act on this campaign if you are 50 or older, and feel free to specify your age if you want to personalize the email.
