Who We are

Health Choice Connecticut (HCCT) is a grassroots non-profit organization with members throughout the state. We are a community of educated professionals, local legislators, health care practitioners, medical doctors, nurses, teachers, chiropractors, naturopathic doctors, grandparents, and parents who believe people have a fundamental right to make informed health decisions for themselves and their families. We are dedicated to protecting Connecticut families' rights to informed consent, medical choices, and religious freedom. In order to do so, we encourage individuals to educate themselves, provide informational content, advocate on behalf of families, and support families on their individual health journeys.

OUR MISSION and vision

HCCT is dedicated to preserving medical choice, informed consent, and religious freedoms. We do so by educating the community, developing relationship with legislators, staying informed about legislative happenings and proposed bills, connecting with various government agencies, testifying at the Capitol and advocating on behalf of members with schools, daycare centers, health care practitioners and more.

Why we do what we do

We love our children and are determined to preserve our existing rights and the rights of future generations. We cannot achieve this through silence. We must advocate on behalf of our children, parents, patients, neighbors, and each other! We must take action and unite to make a difference. Making a difference begins with each of us!

Our guiding principles

AWARENESS

We must recognize and face the onset of a wide range of new childhood epidemics: autism, language delays, asthma, food allergies, diabetes, and obesity to name a few. More than half of American children now have a chronic health condition.

PRECAUTION

Families must be allowed to practice precaution with regarding to child-rearing decisions including medical interventions. Likewise, physicians must be allowed to practice precautionary principles with regard to their medical recommendations. No intervention is one size fits all.

FREEDOM

All humans have the right to health and happiness which includes the right to privacy and bodily autonomy. The right to choose requires that every individual ultimately decide whether to obtain or decline any health treatment or advice.


SOVEREIGNTY

Empowering individuals with the ability to determine their own destiny without the interference of governing powers is fundamental to any free society. Calls to intrude on personal sovereignty “for your own good” or “for the greater good” create a slippery slope to tyranny.

SAFETY

Safety involves a clear vision of the larger goal of regulatory work, which is securing positive health outcomes for children and families. True safety strives for a goal of zero medical adverse events (including from vaccines).

CHOICE

Health choices are a basic human right and must be the foundation of any system of medical care. This includes freedom of mandates and coercive influences along with the right to exercise true informed consent prior to any procedure or intervention.


JUSTICE

With rising awareness of the tragic scope of the environmental injury incurred by so many citizens, young and old, will come a rising demand for justice on behalf of those injured parties.

INTEGRITY

Public institutions have the responsibility to carry out public affairs with governance mechanisms that keep decisions free of conflicts of interest and the resultant self-dealing by interested parties. We must restore scientific integrity to medicine by rigorously separating industry influence from the scientific process.

COMPASSION

The strength of human civilization is best measured by how well it treats its disabled citizens. A benevolent society connects personal virtue with the collective consciousness and finds meaning through the wisdom of love.
