The grassroots group has been especially active in the past 6 years;
Human rights have been under a severe attack from government officials and in the marketplace. This is nothing new for some folks whose health requires special care and responsible management. Some are developing children, and others have complexed and difficult decisions where there is no clear & safe option.
This current threat to human rights is especially onerous to children. They are statistically the least vulnerable to a covid fatality, yet their bodies are very much endangered by the blood clotting dangers of the experimental gene therapies. The advocates of OKHPR are even more passionate about their children's health & wellbeing than for themselves.
Until this year, only parents of small children seemed to pay attention to vaccine policies. But when a new gene therapy was rushed to implementation without proper approval, many Oklahomans started asking questions. Sadly, the medical establishment was largely dismissive or worse. That's when OKHPR took on a much larger role than the previous 5 years.
Previously, Liza grassroots group was mostly parents of young children. Many significant reforms on child vaccine policy were a result of the hard work of the scores of young parents who worked together as OKHPR.
This year, OKHPR gained scores of professional healthcare workers, older citizens with health challenges, and employees concerned about the mandate to permanently alter their RNA in order to keep their jobs.
Liza Greve's work is far from complete. She has the agreement of Gov. Kevin Stitt & Speaker Charles McCall; to convene the legislature in special session for consideration of bills to protect employ health autonomy. It seems only Senate President Pro Temp, Greg Treat is blocking such legislative action.
"In just a few short years, Liza & her group have become a powerhouse at the state Capitol. They are one of the foremost groups pushing liberty in our state. They've helped remove RINOs from office & passed legislation to protect the rights of the people. I've been honored to work with them fighting for theses causes. Her leadership is exemplary & she is very deserving of this honor."
- Nathan Dahm, State Senator
"I cannot think of any Oklahoman who has done more for promoting and defending medical freedom. I am grateful to Liza and her organization for effectively disseminating information and for 'rallying the troops'."
-Wendi Stearman, State representative
"Liza Greve & her team have built one of the most effective grassroots organizations in Oklahoma. What they've done has inspired similar groups around the country. I heartily congratulate her for receiving this well-deserved honor."
-Porter Davis, former State Representative
"It has become patently obvious over the last two years that the natural and codified rights of bodily autonomy and parenting are under attack. Although new to many, this is not a new battle. Liza, and the organization she leads, has defended these rights for years, well before it was popular. These efforts deserve recognition."
-David Oldham, Constitutional Scholar
Even when good statutes are passed, state agencies have frequently surpassed or stifled the intent of the lawmakers(as Ron Durbin demonstrated in 2018). Sometimes a litigation is needed, as was the case last year when Frank Urbanic prevailed to end the governor's edict which would have bankrupted hundreds of restaurants and taverns, and put thousands of employees out of work.
All of the COTY recipients have gone far beyond collaborating with lawmakers. They deal with state agencies and even advocate in courtroom litigation when needed. They also help form the electoral process by backing fellow advocates who seek elective and appointed offices.
SoonerPolitics is honored to be a part of honoring some of Oklahoma's great advocates for liberty.
- David Van Risseghem, Chairman of the COTY committee for SoonerPolitics.
