Here in the United States, bodily sovereignty is a very real thing, but the Biden administration just doesn’t seem all that keen on recognizing it.
Just days ago, President Biden himself announced a number of sweeping new COVID-19 policies, including a mandatory vaccination plan for all employees of the federal government and for any private business that employs more than 100 people. Both decisions were met with incredible resistance, however, thanks to America’s preoccupation with freedom.
Now, in a staggering escalation of this government overreach, the Surgeon General is now suggesting that the feds will be taking another look at “exemptions” to these mandates, and possibly nullifying some that they determine to be “frivolous”.
U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy has advised that the Biden administration will “monitor” to ensure no one abuses COVID-19 vaccine exemptions.
President Biden last week announced a mandate that required any company with at least 100 employees to mandate its workforce. The only way to avoid the mandate is to claim an exemption on either religious or medical grounds.
Some critics argue that the exemptions allow for simple abuse, but Murthy insists the administration will ensure that does not happen.
There was no mistaking Murthy’s intent.
“Unfortunately, as a country, we have experience in dealing with exemptions, but we’ve got to be vigilant there and make sure that people are using them, you know, in the spirit that they’re intended and not abusing them or asking for exemptions when they don’t apply,” Murthy told CNN’s “State of the Union.” “That’s an area that we continue to monitor in the days and weeks ahead.”
There has been plenty of heated debate regarding the federal government’s attempts to install these oppressive mandates, and the idea that some religious or medical exemptions could be arbitrarily disallowed after the fact will only further antagonize the already-wary American electorate.
