CHEYENNE, Wyo. – On Tuesday morning, a crowd estimated at around two hundred gathered in front of the Capitol in Cheyenne, Wyoming, to oppose what event organizers are calling the “Biden COVID-19 mandate exceedance unconstitutional “.
The Medical Freedom Rally is scheduled to run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and was hosted by Wyoming Campaign for Liberty, ReOpen Wyoming, and Wyoming Health Freedom.
The event organizers indicate that the following people should speak throughout the day:

- James Barth – Constitutional Candidate for Sheriff
- Freddy Flores-Salieb – Conservative Corner
- Anthony Bouchard – Wyoming State Senator
At the start of the rally, Republican Natrona County Representative Chuck Gray called Wyoming Governor Gordon on his response to COVID-19.
“The only thing that [Gordon] took action [on] is liberal stuff. We close. It’s the only thing he’s done decisively in this governor’s office, âGray told the crowd. âIt’s all chatter. No action.”
Gray spoke of the criticism the Special Legislative Session received saying that “It is not a waste of time – ever – to stand up for what is right.”
âWe had good bills. The bills they ended up going to committee. We changed them to clarify that religious exemptions would be accepted no matter what, âhe continued.
Gray said he recently learned at a Converse County rally that Banner Health and other medical institutions are going to limit the number of religious exemptions they are going to grant. He alleged that in Casper, medical exemptions were denied to pregnant women.
âIt’s sadistic,â Gray said.
Kathyrn Scigliano, founder of the “Moms for Liberty” group, addressed the public, warning that she feared Biden’s vaccine tenure would eventually end up in Laramie County School District 1.
âThe reason we’re helping here to support medical freedom is if they can access the medical side of it and the healthcare workers it’s going to trickle down to our schools,â said Scigliano.
She said schools do not have the right to immunize their children without consent.
âVaccinations should not take place in schools,â Scigliano added.
The rally comes the day after a federal judge issued a preliminary injunction on Monday suspending the application in Wyoming and nine other states of a Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services rule requiring healthcare workers to be vaccinated. against COVID-19.
This injunction was issued after Wyoming joined Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota and South Dakota in a lawsuit challenging the vaccine mandate.
Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon on Monday hailed the break in Biden’s tenure as a victory for Wyoming’s rural health facilities as they continue to grapple with staffing issues.
“This is good news for rural Wyoming health facilities, which are already facing staffing issues without the federal government imposing additional unconstitutional charges on their employees,” Gordon said in a press release on Monday. from his office. âHealthcare workers shouldn’t be forced to choose between vaccination and dismissal. “
