The nation is witnessing a rising show of pushback against COVID vaccine mandates. Despite businesses rolling out these requirements, many workers are choosing to quit their jobs, sue, or face termination, rather than get the COVID vaccine.
For Americans who oppose COVID vaccine mandates, it’s a matter of individual freedom for one to make their own medical choices. Countless folks across the nation are not on board with the government or private sector determining what substances someone puts in their bodies.
For many Americans, enough is enough. On Monday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott, a Republican, outlawed all COVID vaccine mandates via executive order.
Assessing the Texas governor’s executive order
Abbott’s order ultimately decrees that all entities in Texas are prohibited from mandating workers or customers show proof of COVID vaccination. In this order, the Texas governor declares the COVID vaccine as safe and the most reliable guard against coronavirus; however, Abbott also maintains that no Texan should be forced to undergo this vaccination.
That’s not all, though. Not only did Abbott pass this executive order; he also directed it to the agenda of the third Special Session. This is clearly a means of ensuring the executive order gets codified into state law.
The danger of COVID vaccine mandates in America
Quite simply, COVID vaccine mandates strip individuals of their ability to make their own healthcare decisions. None of the people mandating these shots bear any liability if someone takes the shot due to a mandate and then later suffers an adverse reaction and/or death.
Adverse reactions and deaths from COVID vaccines have happened already; yet, the media never plasters these stories the way they do reports about unvaccinated individuals who later get sick and regret not taking the vaccine.
For many Americans, enough is enough. This is why mass firings are happening across the country. It is also why Southwest Airlines has cancelled thousands of flights over the past several days.
The airline’s claim that these flight cancellations are due to weather and air traffic control complications doesn’t hold up. The Federal Aviation Administration is saying otherwise; so are Americans who report speaking with Southwest pilots and other workers confirming protests against COVID vaccine mandates are underway.
