The two shared their thoughts on the matter during the April 4 episode of "Real Talk with Dr. Eric Nepute" on Brighteon.TV. Renz began by expounding on the two-page legislation introduced by State Rep. Holly Jones. According to him, HB 1169 seeks to amend Chapter 196 of the Missouri Revised Statutes by adding three new sections related to required disclosures for certain products.
"It requires anything that has gene-therapy qualities be labeled gene-therapy product and get information about how it can shed or transmit," the attorney said. "[This should be done for] any product that acts as a medical intervention, like a drug or a vaccine that you'd be given informed consent."
If approved, the amendment would apply to any entity that produces, sells or distributes a product that can infect an individual with a disease or expose an individual to genetically modified material. These include, but are not limited to vaccines, gene therapies, drugs and medical interventions.
Entities would also be required to provide all information related to the ways in which individuals who did not directly obtain or use such product may be exposed to the product or a component of the product.
Lastly, any entity described in the above provision shall provide the information requested as soon as reasonably practicable, but at least within 21 days after receipt of the written request.
While the "Lawfare with Tom Renz" host stressed that the Democratic state representatives would obviously oppose the bill, the problem lies with the fact that the Cave State is a RINO state. He named four GOP state lawmakers most likely to vote against HB 1169: State Reps. Dave Hinman, Jeff Farnan, Mike Haffner and Dane Diehl. Incidentally, all four are on the Missouri House Emerging Issues Committee.
Nepute told Renz that he went to speak with the said congressmen to find out why they are opposing the bill. The St. Louis chiropractor got a shocking response: He was told to reach out to the agriculture lobbyists.
"They're getting their marching orders from the lobbyists," Nepute said, pointing out that some of the state lawmakers think that HB 1169 was too broad. The chiropractor recalled asking what particular item in the bill could be too broad, if they are any proposed changes in its working and how could the bill be fixed.
Nepute said: "Every single one of them that are voting no said, 'I don't really have an answer for that.' Usually, I get my talking point and I can walk away."
Renz reacted to Nepute's remarks: "This is absolute gobbledygook. It's two pages, it just says 'If you're screwing with my genes or providing a medical intervention," you got to disclose it. You [have got to] give me informed consent.' That's not too broad."
