Good news arrived in the district court of the District of Columbia, when it enjoined a new D.C. law that authorizes school administrators to inject the Covid and other vaccines into schoolchildren as young as 11 years, without parental consent or even knowledge. In Booth v. Bowser, Trump-appointed Judge Trevor McFadden sided with parents. The District of Columbia insisted in court that there is no constitutional right to any religious exemptions from mandatory vaccination. The District also argued that a rate of 95% vaccination was necessary to attain herd immunity from contagious diseases, which is a far higher rate than public officials have admitted. In blocking the school vaccine mandate in D.C., the judge properly held that vaccine tyranny will not be allowed to “trample on the Constitution.” Officials pushing these vaccine mandates should be defeated in elections, too.
Only about 65% of Americans opted to receive the Covid vaccine, many forced to do so, while fewer than 50% of them have received the recommended booster shot. Most Americans have rejected the demands by Dr. Anthony Fauci and so-called public health experts about Covid vaccination and masks, as have many foreign countries. Yet, vaccine mandates started at the adult level and trickled down to children as more and more Americans became acclimated to the idea of giving up their right to make their own medical decisions.
The “trickle-down” effect from adults to children can also be seen as LGBT radicals try to push life-altering surgeries on young kids, often without parental knowledge or consent. A decade ago, these radicals tried to convince us that we should accept the lifestyle choices of adults who mutilate their own bodies due to their mental illness called gender dysphoria. As society shifts to the left, they now feel emboldened to mutilate children, who are incapable of providing informed consent. Often, these children aren’t even suffering from mental illness, but are just going through the many phases that accompany the transition from childhood to adulthood.
The lesson to conservatives is clear: don’t wait until bad policies trickle down to our children before opposing them. Vaccine mandates for anyone are wrong, and gender dysphoria should be treated, not enabled.
