USA Today posted a piece last month calling for "vaccination for all" and said that "it's not un-American, it's patriotic."
So much for medical freedom. What happened to the my body, my choice crowd?
The piece calls for free vaccines that don't allow for religious or personal objections. That statement along infringes on both medical and religious freedom.
They wrote, "[W]hile the measures that will be necessary to defeat the coronavirus will seem draconian, even anti-American to some, we believe that there is no alternative. Simply put, getting vaccinated is going to be our patriotic duty."
So the author admits that it is draconian and anti-American, yet still calls for it:
The reason: When an effective vaccine is available for COVID-19, it will only defeat the pandemic if it is widely used, creating “herd immunity.” It is important to note that during an epidemic, there is no threshold above which the protection conferred by herd immunity cannot be improved. Thus, the more people who are immunized, the lower the risk for all of us, including those who are not vaccinated.
Nor is there an alternative to vaccine-induced herd immunity in a pandemic. Relying on enough people becoming infected and then immune is dangerous, as exemplified by the Swedish experience where the COVID-19 mortality rate exceeds that of its more cautious neighbors. Broad induction of immunity in the population by immunization will be necessary to end this pandemic. In simple terms, a refusal to be vaccinated threatens the lives of others.
Absolutely not. As Benjamin Franklin once said, "Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."
Where there is risk, there must be choice. I'd rather die freely than live without my freedom.
