November 30, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro stated firmly last week that he would not take a COVID-19 vaccine his country may approve and he was “sure” that Congress would not make such a vaccine mandatory.

“I'm telling you, I won't take it (the vaccine),” he said Nov. 26 during a “subjects of the week” press conference. “It is my right.”

“And I am sure that Congress will not create difficulties for whoever doesn't want to take a vaccine,” he added.

“Forcing people to take the vaccine or say that who doesn’t take it cannot get a passport, have a public job, that’s dictatorship,” the Brazilian president went on to say. “Whoever defends that is a dictator, or a false dictator that is willing to do business with the lives of others.”

People of goodwill can disagree about the safety, efficacy and religious implications of a new vaccine for the coronavirus.

But, everyone should agree on this point:

No government can force anyone who has reached legal adulthood to be vaccinated for the coronavirus. Equally, no government can vaccinate minors for the coronavirus against the will of their parents or guardians.

Please SIGN this urgent petition which urges policymakers at every level of government to reject calls for mandatory coronavirus vaccination.

Fear of a disease - which we know very little about, relative to other similar diseases - must not lead to knee-jerk reactions regarding public health, nor can it justify supporting the hidden agenda of governmental as well as non-governmental bodies that have apparent conflicts of interest in plans to restrict personal freedoms. 

The so-called "public health experts" have gotten it wrong many times during the current crisis. We should not, therefore, allow their opinions to rush decision-makers into policies regarding vaccination.

And, while some people, like Bill Gates, may have a lot of money, his opinion and that of his NGO (the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation) - namely, that life will not return to normal till people are widely vaccinated - should not be permitted to influence policy decisions on a coronavirus vaccination program.

Finally, we must also not allow the rush by pharmaceutical companies to produce a new coronavirus vaccine to, itself, become an imperative for vaccination.

Unwitting citizens must not be used as guinea pigs for New World Order ideologues, or Big Pharma, in pursuit of a vaccine (and, profits) which may not even protect against future mutated strains of the coronavirus.

And it goes without saying that the production of vaccines using aborted babies for cell replication is a total non-starter, as the technique is gravely immoral.

However, if after sufficient study of the issue, a person who has reached the age of majority wishes to be vaccinated with a morally produced vaccine, along with his children, that is his business.

But we cannot and will not permit the government to make that decision for us.

Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition, urging policymakers at all levels of government to reject mandatory coronavirus vaccination.

We realize many have general concerns about vaccines, but also recognize that millions of lives have been saved due to vaccines.

Bolsonaro also criticized the use of masks to combat the spread of the virus, referring to them as a “taboo” that needs “to fall.”

His words on the ineffectiveness of masks echo those of a growing body of doctors (here and here) — backed by recent peer-reviewed research — who make the case that masks are “utterly useless” at stopping the transmission of the virus.

The 65-year-old Brazilian president tested posted for COVID-19 in July. He recovered in early August after spending three weeks in quarantine at the presidential palace.

“I knew I was going to catch it someday, as I think unfortunately nearly everyone here is going to catch it eventually. What are you afraid of? Face up to it,” he said at the time.

“I regret the deaths. But people die every day, from lots of things. That's life.”

The country has recorded more than 6.3 million cases of COVID-19 with 5.5 million recoveries, according to Worldometers. 172,848 deaths have been attributed to the virus, according to the same source. According to those statistics, Brazil currently trails India and the United States for number of deaths attributed to COVID-19, making it the third worst hit nation for deaths.
