CDC petition launches to end vaccine bullying: United States: Christianity Daily
There are over 135 million fully vaccinated Americans in the United States today, or 41.2% of the population. As the number has steadily increased from the time the COVID vaccines were approved by the FDA for emergency use, some remained hesitant to get vaccinated.
A number of people do not want to be vaccinated at all and this right should be protected by the US Constitution. However, the CDC continues to issue guidelines on vaccinations, allowing some companies to require their workers to be vaccinated against COVID before returning to work. This amounts to bullying related to the CDC’s vaccine.
At the Houston Methodist Health System in Texas, 117 employees have filed a lawsuit against the medical center for denouncing its vaccine mandate which requires employees and contractors to be vaccinated against COVID. According to Medscape, the trial is being led by Jennifer Bridges, registered nurse, medical-surgical nurse at the hospital, and Bob Nevens, director of corporate risk at the hospital.
“My civil rights and freedoms have been violated,” Nevens wrote in the online petition. He explained that he was fired from his job on April 15 after being given 15 days to be vaccinated against COVID. “My right to protect myself from the unknown side effects of these vaccines has been placed under the lens of ‘advanced medicine’.”
Neven claims to have “been the victim of retaliation and discrimination for choosing personal belief and personal choices over complying with their brand new vaccine policy which violates federal laws and the constitution.” Lawsuits like these can be on the rise as more businesses aim to fully reopen. However, this puts Americans at a standstill, especially those who do not want to be vaccinated against COVID.
According to the Wall Street newspaper, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission updated its guidelines to say that “federal laws do not prevent an employer from requiring workers to be vaccinated.” However, in some situations, federal laws “may require the employer to provide reasonable accommodations to employees who, due to a disability or religious belief, are not vaccinated.”
Reasonable accommodation could mean that an unvaccinated employee would enter their workplace under a mask warrant, social distancing, or choose to work from home. It is not taken lightly by employees keen to resume normal life, especially when the intimidation of the CDC vaccine hovers over their heads.
WND‘s Scott Lively, who is a human rights consultant, missionary, pastor and lawyer, calls for pushing back against CDC vaccine bullying. He cited the US Constitution and said citizens are protected from it and have the right to refuse a COVID vaccine. He argued that freedom in America has been under threat since the pandemic was declared a “national health emergency.”
Lively criticized Big Tech for obstructing free speech, the “monopoly big media ideologues” for suppressing press freedom and spreading false information and conspiracy theories (alongside Big Tech), and the government for issuing lockdown warrants that violate people’s freedom of assembly.
He also denounced the “false characterization by the left of our demonstrations as” selfish “,” dangerous “,” white supremacists “and” insurrectionary “.
Lively is now campaigning against Big Pharma and CDC, his “government authority” for attempting to “destroy our Fourth Amendment to Bodily Sovereignty by forcing the entire nation to submit to” vaccines “to generate vast Big Pharma profits, paid by our public treasury. . “
With these reasons in mind, Lively launched the “Petition Against the CDC Vaccine Bullying,” which calls for “ceasing and immediately renouncing all efforts to intimidate the American people into submitting to medical procedures that we do not want”.
The petition can be viewed at its website.
