States are rising up against the unelected three-letter agency, the World Health Organization (WHO), and asserting their right to sovereignty by filing bills that would stop the organization from having the right to rule in their state. We’re watching these active bills in the 2023/2024 session.
|2024 session (Active Bills)
State sovereignty trending against the WHO
More and more states are seeing bills or resolutions guarding against the corrupt World Health Organization. States have the primary authority in public health, not the federal government, and certainly not an unelected global body.
As of February 2024, there are ten states that have bills or resolutions on the table this session. This is up from five last year, and one in 2022. Also encouraging is that we are still seeing new bills or resolutions filed; it wasn’t just a flurry of pre-filed bills. This means lawmakers are opening their eyes and ears to advocates who are educating them on the global power grab. The resolutions tend to urge the White House to withdraw from the WHO; bills tend to reassert state sovereignty and say the WHO has no jurisdiction in their state.
SHF is not advocating for a model bill, but we have shared short and sweet suggested language on our recent resource “TITLE.” Just as asserting a religious exemption, the less-is-more approach is a strong path here.
Some observations from the filed bills:
1. The less-is-more approach is powerful.
2. Focus only on the WHO or global entities. The WHO is unelected, unaccountable, and outside America. Many bills are including sovereignty assertions against the CDC as well. While it is true that CDC doesn’t have authority (unless a state explicitly gives it), a bill is more likely to meet resistance when an American agency is included.
3. Some states are hooking the 10th Amendment of our U.S. Bill of Rights to their sovereignty assertions, but that doesn’t go far enough. The 10th Amendment will protect a state’s rights in public health against the federal government, but it doesn’t prevent the state itself from adopting WHO policies with the force of law.
4. Limiting the language in the bill to the treaty alone does not incorporate the already existing International Health Regulations, which are already binding on the U.S., and amendments are being proposed to turn options into obligations.
5. Some states have added a private right to sue if globalist mandates are imposed after the bill is passed.
If your state does not have a bill yet (check here), please hook up with your state’s health advocacy group.
While looking at state bill proposals in the 2023 and 2024 sessions, using the search term “World Health Organization,” we found some striking things you might be interested to know. Through 2023 and the first month of 2024, when most bills would be filed for the session, we found lawmakers turning to the WHO as an authority in almost 300 bills. States that looked to the WHO as experts most frequently were Florida, New York, New Jersey, and Hawaii. To see more about that information look at our hand out here.
