Facebook is trying to take away certain Facebook groups that talk about vaccinations, either educational based or opinion based. It is our legal right, as Americans, to have the right to keep these groups due to The First Amendment (Freedom of Speech).

Removing Facebook groups infringes on our rights to openly speak on any topic. It is not only unconstitutional but it is a form of segregation, promoting hatred for a group of people. There are several reasonings as to why a group of like minded citizens choose to unite and discuss topics that are grievously important. Not only this, but there are groups that hold these specific beliefs and ideals due to religion. Removing groups that do not coincide with the general population is religious discrimination, as well.

Please review, “The First Amendment (Amendment I) to the United States Constitution prevents the government from making laws which respect an establishment of religion, prohibit the free exercise of religion, or abridge the freedom of speech, the freedom of the press, the right to peaceably assemble, or the right to petition the government for redress of grievances. It was adopted on December 15, 1791, as one of the ten amendments that constitute the Bill of Rights.”

Please Facebook, reconsider being this kind of company who does not stand beside a persons right to hold their own beliefs and express them. Is it not the right of the citizens of America to express what they believe and join together with like-minded individuals from across countries and in our own backyards? You are taking this away, based on a persons sincerely held belief.

If the tables were turned and you felt that Christians, Buddhist, Muslims etc. were wrong for their deeply held religious values would you remove their Facebook Groups and try to shut them down and ignore them because you felt they were wrong? If your answer is no, please realize that you are doing this same thing by trying to silence the voices against vaccinations. In addition, I would like to advise you to strongly consider why you’ve made the decision to remove the groups, silence them, and/or make moves against a considerable amount of citizens.

The point of Facebook is to bring people together. Instead of standing up for what is right, you are choosing to rip them apart. Please review what your morals, ethics, and mission/vision of the company are. As of right now, several groups across the world, are hurting and being torn apart by your choices to stand aside as citizens’ rights are being stripped. Don’t stand aside. Stand up for our rights to choose what we say, what we believe, and more.
