In addition to citizen rights to freedom of association, always acknowledged in the U.S. Constitution (as logically supporting the foundation of the Experimenting Medical Refugees Clubhouse), there is the 21st Amendment to the Ohio Constitution.
Judge for yourself:
PRESERVATION OF THE FREEDOM TO CHOOSE HEALTH CARE AND HEALTH CARE COVERAGE
(A) No federal, state, or local law or rule shall compel, directly or indirectly, any person, employer, or healthcare provider to participate in a health care system.
(B) No federal, state, or local law or rule shall prohibit the purchase or sale of health care or health care insurance.
[ (C) to (D) are aimed at Obamacare nullification ]
(E) As used in this Section,
(1) "Compel" includes the levying of penalties or fines
(2) "Health care system" means any public or private entity or program whose function or purpose includes the management of, processing of, enrollment of individuals for, or payment for, in full or in part, health care services, health care data or health care information for its participants.
)3) "Penalty or fine" means any civil or criminal penalt or fine, tax, salary or wage withholding or surcharge or any named fee extablished by law or rule by a government established, created, or controlled agency that is used to punish or discourage the exercise of rights protected under this section
(Passed in 2011)
The Emergency Medical Refugees Clubhouse would fit as a club/entity that provides its members with services and data for healthy living and self care.
Now the next question is, does the Rule of Law exist in Ohio to make this the reality for Medical Refugees? Any more than it exists in Washington DC?
