“My child, my choice”

"My child, my choice” is a parents’ rights saying that has been printed on many images. The saying often refers to the choice of vaccinating a child, and can refer to educational choices as well. It is similar to the saying “My body, my choice” about abortion.

My Child, My Choices Healthy eating when you are pregnant (1991) was published by the University of Wisconsin—Cooperative Extension.  “Vouchers. My Child, My Choice” was printed in the Atlanta (GA) Journal-Constitution on October 5, 1993. “Vaccination My Child My Choice Forum” was the title of a post in the newsgroup misc.kids.health on September 25, 1999.

“My Child, My Choice”? Mandatory Curriculum, Sex, and the Conscience of Parents
Author: Lauren Bialystok
Publisher: Wiley-Blackwell. 350 Main Street, Malden, MA 02148. Tel: 800-835-6770; Tel: 781-388-8598; Fax: 781-388-8232; e-mail: ; Web site: http://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA
Edition/Format: Article Article : English
Publication: Educational Theory, v68 n1 p11-29 Feb 2018
Summary:
In this essay Lauren Bialystok argues that the standard liberal defense of parental opt-outs is inconsistent in the case of comprehensive sex education. Using the recent controversy over a new sex education curriculum in Ontario, Canada, as a case study, Bialystok examines the aims and effects of sex education and the self-described conscience of opposing parents to reveal that children’s interests may be harmed by deferring to parents’ views on sexuality.

Bill to remove vaccine exemptions returns to Oregon Capitol, sparks charged debate
Connor Radnovich, Salem Statesman Journal Published 3:41 p.m. PT April 23, 2019
A bill that would remove the nonmedical vaccine exemption for schoolchildren once again drew hundreds of parents and children to the Oregon Capitol Tuesday, bringing back to attention one of the state’s most emotionally charged debates.
(...)
A crowd of around 1,000 gathered Tuesday on the steps of the Capitol and spilled over onto the nearby mall. They waved signs reading “medical freedom!” and “No on HB 3063” and “My Child My Choice” and chanted “we do not consent.”
