Clark County Republican Central Committee ratifies Informed Consent Personal Rights Resolution
The Clark County (Washington State) Central Committee, at their third quarter meeting on September 9th 2023, voted to approve and endorsed a resolution that affirms a person’s right to informed consent. The resolution affirms that a person is only secure and undisturbed in their private affairs if allowed to voluntarily consent or refuse a medical intervention, product, or procedure, while in the absence of coercion.
The Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution protects the natural “right of the people to be secure in their persons,” and the Ninth and Fourteenth Amendments protect the fundamental right to bodily integrity, while Article 1 Section 7 of the Constitution of Washington State states that “No person shall be disturbed in his private affairs.”
