Liberals like to claim that people should have a right to their own bodies and beliefs, but apparently that only applies to women who want to murder their unborn babies.
Colorado Democrats are making this point crystal clear by advancing a bill that would force parents who don’t want to vaccinate their children to take mandatory pro-vaccination classes. Colorado’s SB-163 bill is set to be passed by the state’s Democrat-controlled Congress, after which it will head to the governor’s desk.
Colorado Governor Democrat Jared Polis, who opposed a similar bill last year, has already pledged to sign the new legislation.
The bill doesn’t just mandate classes for “anti-vaxxers.” It also dictates that medical professionals must give vaccinations even if they believe the immunizations are not in the child’s best interest. Thankfully, there are no penalties listed for doctors and nurses who operate according to their conscience and basic, common sense, but such penalties will likely be coming in the future.
SB-163 goes on to state that parents must provide evidence of completing the modules before being allowed to obtain a state-sanctioned vaccine exemption. Without the state waiver, parents would be forced to pick between homeschooling their kids, which is not a viable option for many families, and injecting their child with a potentially harmful substance.
Sadly, Colorado is not the only state that is cracking down on parents who don’t follow the official vaccination timeline. New York, California, Maine, and West Virginia have also ditched religious exemptions for vaccinations, and Illinois is attempting to join their ranks.
There is no consideration for the fact that parents object to having their children shot up with a vial that was produced by companies using tissues from aborted babies. There is also no thought given to the fact that a potential COVID-19 vaccine would likely be rushed into production. All that matters to the left is stripping control from parents and giving the state unlimited power.
Vaccinations have been a controversial topic for many Americans for a long time. Many believe that they have led to a decline in potentially dangerous diseases such as smallpox, measles, and polio. On the other hand, other parents don’t feel the risk of side effects is worth it.
Even those who are in favor of mass vaccination should be alarmed by Colorado’s bill. America is supposed to be a free country, with freedom of speech, assembly, and religion. Parents should have the right to choose how to raise their children, and this right includes deciding if their children should or should not be vaccinated.
