Anti-Fluoride Group Submits More than 35,000 Signatures to Portland in ‘Confident’ Bid to Force Vote

Fluoride in Water

Story at-a-glance -

  • Portland is the largest city in the United States that has yet to add fluoride to its water supply, a stance that was set to change thanks to a unanimous city council vote in September. The city was set to begin water fluoridation in 2014, despite strong opposition from residents.
  • To put a halt to the fluoride plan, opponents needed to collect at least 19,858 valid signatures in just 30 days; Clean Water Portland, which opposes the water fluoridation plan, succeeded in collecting more than 35,000 signatures – and they did it a day ahead of schedule.
  • Assuming the signatures are valid, plans to fluoridate Portland’s drinking water will stop until the City Council either decides to repeal the ordinance or, more likely, add the potential ordinance to an upcoming ballot (most likely in May 2014) to let the voters decide.
  • Fluoride is the only drug that is forced as “mass medication” on large populations via their drinking water; your right to choose whether or not you ingest fluoride is an issue concerning both health and freedom.
