In the News: Anti-Vax Students Sue Indiana University Over Vaccine Mandate

A group of students at the University of Indiana recently filed a complaint over the school’s oppressive, unconstitutional vaccine mandate.

Justice Amy Coney-Barrett, who is the SC’s justice who oversees that regions emergency petitions, received a request from eight students to block the mandate and on Thursday, rejected the plea.

This past May, the university said that all students, faculty and staff must be vaccinated, unless they have legitimate reasons not to be vaccinated, such as a being a religious fanatic, or having a medical reason.

District judge Frank Easterbrook wrote in his ruling opinion:

Starting next semester, all students at Indiana University must be vaccinated against COVID-19 unless they are exempt for religious or medical reasons. Exempt students must wear masks and be tested for the disease twice a week. Eight students contend in this suit that these conditions of attendance violate due process clause of the Constitution’s fourteenth amendment. The district court denied plaintiffs’ request to a preliminary injunction, and they ask us to issue an injunction pending appeal.”

The application of the students who sued, reads:

“Students are facing IU’s imminent demand that they relinquish their Constitutional rights in order to start school this fall. And that it is coercing students to give up their bodily integrity, autonomy, and of medical treatment choice in exchange for the discretionary benefit of matriculating at IU.”

According to the right students the vaccines may be more dangerous than effects of the coronavirus.

“The risk of serious morbidity and mortality from COVID for those under thirty, ” their attorney, James Bopp, said in their defense, not citing any data to back up his claim, “is close to zero. The known and unknown risks associated with COVID vaccines, particularly in those under thirty, outweigh the risks to that population from the disease itself.”

As with any medication, there are risks involved in using those medications. Side effects are rare. I’ve had both shots of the Pfizer vaccine and have not experienced any side effects.

There is no reason for these students to refuse to be vaccinated. It’s all just a game to them. Everyone has to cater to the anti-vaxxers, the anti-maskers and their nonsense while they throw their public temper tantrums and insist they know what’s best, what’s true, and what the science really says. These people are largely the reason the pandemic is still a serious threat; we have millions of people who believe it’s government tyranny to have to follow health mandates designed to keep others and themselves safe.
