Martha on the Issues
Medical Freedom and Bodily Autonomy
I will work to end all mandates requiring people to take inoculations and wear masks, which science shows are useless to protect them and which have many proven harms, and to make sure that New Yorkers and their children will never again be forced or coerced into any medical decision. My first priority will be to ensure that New Yorkers are never denied their rights to health freedom, including
The right of individuals to decide on their healthcare, what medications, inoculations and medical procedures they undergo;
The right of parents to make decisions about their children’s healthcare, including medications, procedures and inoculations;
Protecting individuals from all forms of discrimination and legal harassment as a result of their health decisions about any given medical procedures, inoculations or medications;
Protecting the right of healthcare providers to use their best judgment and knowledge in advising and caring for patients;
The right of individuals to full informed consent for all medical decisions, which includes free and uncensored access to all information and the full range of expert opinion necessary to be properly informed to decide.
I will work to end the government by decree via unconstitutional and unlawful mandates to which New Yorkers have been subjected over the past two and a half years. New York is not a monarchy; the legislature must rein in the executive branch and unaccountable state agencies, which have been riding roughshod over the law and constitutional rights of New York citizens. I will work to implement reforms such as
Placing a strict time limit on any state of emergency and making it unlawful to renew a state of emergency. Open-ended and constantly renewed states of emergency have always been the tool of tyrants; thirty days should be enough time to handle an emergency, and enough time for the legislature to pass any necessary laws upon free and open discussion with their constituents in the event it is not resolved in that time;
Repealing laws that give the governor, mayors and health department powers to override the New York State Constitution and laws duly passed by the legislature;
Limiting the powers and increasing the transparency and accountability of state agencies and the officials who run them, for example, boards of health and health commissioners;
Guaranteeing that the rights to freedom of speech and religion granted by the US Constitution and the New York State Constitution will be protected and defended.
Schools and Education
Our children and young people have the right to a good education in a safe and nurturing environment, where they are given a strong foundation in the basics, are challenged intellectually and encouraged to develop critical thinking, independence and creativity. Our schools are not meant to be indoctrination centers for the latest social theories, nor are they meant to replace parents and the community in inculcating values and morality. Still less should they be places where fear and alienation are instilled by unscientific and harmful practices such as masks, distancing, testing and bullying pressure on those who have chosen to avoid the injections. I will work to
Eliminate the practices of masking, distancing, testing and “vaccine” mandates, which have been scientifically proven to be ineffective, destructive and abusive;
Make sure schools stay open and that children are not barred from attending in person based on meaningless and unscientific tests;
Ensure that parents are welcomed into schools at all times to observe and take part in their children’s education;
Require that school curricula focus on teaching basic skills and encourage critical, independent thinking and creativity, integrating humanities, literature and the arts;
Eliminate indoctrination in radical social theories and sexual concepts with materials, discussions, etc. that are not age appropriate and that serve to confuse and alienate children from one another and from their parents.
Encourage and support programs in the arts, music and the humanities.
Encourage and support the teaching of a strong, well-designed civics and history program.
Health and the Environment
Public health is not supported through mandated injections and other pharmaceutical interventions, nor through unscientific and draconian measures such as distancing, mask wearing and mass quarantining of healthy people. True health of communities comes about as a result of environmental measures guaranteeing clean water and air, good public sanitation, space for healthy exercise, contact with nature, education about and access to good nutrition, and supplements when necessary. It also means that we must guarantee that New Yorkers have access to a full range of healthcare options and that they can afford them. I will work to
Make sure New Yorkers have clean water, free of toxic pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, fracking compounds, and drug residues;
Work to phase out the addition to water supplies of fluoride, a proven neurotoxin, for which there are numerous other sources available to those who wish to consume it;
Work for review and independent studies, free from industry influence, of EMF exposure such as Wi-Fi, smart meters, cell phones, 5G, cell phone towers, and body scanners in airports, and for an institution of the precautionary principle, requiring assurance of safety before the implementation of new technologies;
Support legislation allowing people to have freedom in choosing their healthcare and to make sure that it is available and affordable to all;
Encourage and support urban farming (for example, Red Hook Farms), farmers markets, and Community Supported Agriculture;
Support the development of affordable and available healthcare for all New Yorkers.
