Walker Wildmon, Chief Executive Officer of AFA Action (afaaction.net), is here to discuss the strange move by the Supreme Court to allow vaccine mandates on healthcare workers.
Walker Wildmon, Chief Executive Officer of AFA Action (afaaction.net), a division of American Family Association. He is also Vice President of Operations and Public Policy Analyst, American Family Association (AFA, www.afa.net). AFA has nearly 2 million constituents worldwide.
In light of the recent Supreme Court ruling that allows the vaccine mandate to remain in effect for healthcare workers, AFA Action is petitioning the Court to revisit the decision and hear the case again.
While the Supreme Court decided to overturn OSHA’s vaccine mandate for businesses with over 100 employees, the Court also ruled that Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra did have the authority to require all health care workers at institutions that receive Medicare and Medicaid funding to get the COVID-19 vaccine, unless they get medical or religious exemptions.
How does this mandate for health care workers violate their freedom of choice and rights of conscience?
Rob Chambers, Executive Vice President of AFA Action, stated: “[The Court’s] destructive opinion failed to shield healthcare workers from the federal mandate to get injected with the COVID-19 vaccine and boosters. It violates their freedom of choice and rights of conscience.”
Rob Chambers continued: “There is no factual basis to support the assertion that forcing a COVID-19 vaccine injection ‘will substantially reduce’ the chances of a healthcare worker becoming infectious. Such a notion is based on opinion, not scientific fact. For Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Kavanaugh to embrace this baseless assertion and use this fallacious information to uphold President Biden’s employer vaccine mandate for healthcare workers is a most egregious violation of justice and the rule of law.”
AFA Action is urging the U.S. Supreme Court to revisit this case which mandates COVID-19 vaccination for healthcare workers.
AFA Action also invites people to sign a petition for SCOTUS to reconsider this case.
