NEW ALERT: Is the radical, anti-parent bill SB 866 all but dead?

Thursday, June 9, 2022, 5:50 pm | Randy Thomasson

UPDATE, JULY 12: 2022: The alert on this page is replaced by our July 12 alert opposing all 4 anti-parent bills, SB 866, SB 1184, SB 1419, and SB 1479.

UPDATE — Thursday, June 16: This morning, radical anti-parent bill SB 866 was amended (replacing age 12 with 15) on the Assembly floor. Eighteen of 19 Republicans voted no, as did 3 Democrats., and there 19 Democrats that we believer purposefully abstained because they’re uncomfortable with the bill. The amended SB 866 — still eliminating parental consent and inform consent on teenage injections — still might not pass the next Assembly session on June 20 @ 1pm. So tell assemblymembers the amended bill is still anti-parent!

UPDATE — Wednesday, June 15: SB 866 doesn’t have the votes to pass, so the author, “LGBTQIA+” Democrat State Senator Scott Weiner of San Francisco is reportedly amending his bill to say children aged 15 and up (not 12 and up, as the bill currently reads). This would mean amending the bill on the Assembly on Thursday, June 16, but not voting on the amended bill itself until the next scheduled floor session. And SB 866 can only be amended if a “majority…of Members present and voting” vote yes to do so.

From the Assembly Rules:
69. (a) Any Member may move to amend a bill during its second or
third reading, and that motion to amend may be adopted by a majority
vote of the Members present and voting.

69. (d) Any bill amended on the second or third reading fi le shall be
ordered reprinted and returned to the third reading fi le, and may not be
acted on by the Assembly until the bill, as amended, has been on the
Daily File for one calendar day.

UPDATE — Monday, June 13: Good news, 3 Democrats were absent today, and radical anti-parent bill SB 866 was skipped over a 3rd straight Assembly session. It can be heard on the next floor session, which is Thursday, June 16 at 9 a.m. Keep your strategic calls coming!


1. Call your own Republican or Democrat state assemblymember: https://findyourrep.legislature.ca.gov

For Republican assemblymembers say:
“Stand and speak against SB 866 on the floor. Raise your voice to expose the harm of this anti-parent, anti-child bill!”

For Democrat assemblymembers, deliver the message:
“Don’t attack parents — don’t eliminate parental rights for teen and pre-teens. Children cannot give informed consent or be responsible for knowing their risks beforehand or dealing with problems after a shot — that’s what parents are for. Oppose SB 866!”

2. Call the deciding-vote state assemblymembers. (Scroll down for names and phone numbers.)

Thank you for being pro-family — for caring for what’s best for children and for supporting God-given parental rights for yourself and others, which SB 866 would utterly trample. Here’s the latest good news and new action steps. Please participate — let’s kill SB 866!

Today (Thursday, June 9, 2022), in another abbreviated floor session that lasted just a half hour, the Democrat-controlled California Assembly again skipped over SB 866, which would eliminate parental consent and informed consent for controversial, even risky injections, into children’s bodies as young as age 12.

This second delay of a floor vote on SB 866 is thanks to you and thousands of other concerned Californians who have been calling the deciding votes we’ve identified. And, because SB 866 so blatantly pushes parents out of the picture, enough Democrat state assemblymembers seem to “get it” that voting for it would hurt them politically.

Is SB 866 all but dead? Let’s count the votes. In the California State Assembly, to pass bills requires 41 yes votes, a majority in the 80-seat lower house. There are currently two Democrat vacancies, leaving 78 members, of whom there are 19 Republicans and 1 independent. If these 20 don’t support SB 866, we’re left with 58 Democrats who could.

But if at least 19 Democrats don’t support SB 866, it will fail for lack of a majority, receiving 40, not 41, votes. Here’s our “SB 866 vote countdown” — counting from 58 Democrats minus at least 19 Democrats who won’t support this radical, anti-parent bill:

43. Sabrina Cervantes 916-319-2060 and 951-371-6860: Initially abstained on AB 2098 punishing good doctors and 2223 permitting infanticide, but then later changed her votes to yes after both bills passed

38. Mike Gipson 916-319-2064 and 310-324-6408: Thinks he’s a Christian and might support clear-cut parental rights
37. Mike Fong 916-319-2049 and 323-264-4949: Represents mostly Asian families, as well as Hispanic families

Q: So, if they’ve skipped over SB 866 multiple times on the assembly floor, is SB 866 is dead? A: We say “No, not yet.” Because our side needs more commitments from deciding-vote Democrats that they’ll oppose SB 866. And we need that pressure and assurance before the Assembly meets again (Monday, June 13 at 1 p.m.).

Please go for the win by calling anew to the phone numbers above Thursday and Friday 7pm to 8am and anytime this weekend. Also please call “independent” Chad Mayes at 916-319-2042 and 760-346-6342. Leave anonymous voicemails (because Democrat offices will “trash” your messages if they confirm you live out of their districts, so don’t reveal your identity or location, and just “mix in” with the flood of voicemails the member is receiving).

Tell them something like: “Don’t attack parents — don’t eliminate parental rights on teen and pre-teen vaccinations. Children cannot give informed consent or be responsible for knowing their risks beforehand or dealing with problems after an injection — that’s what parents are for. Oppose SB 866!”

Also, please call your own state assemblymember Monday through Friday during business hours (9am to 5pm) and identify yourself. Find your own assemblymember
