(LifeSiteNews) — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed legislation yesterday banning dangerous gain-of-function research as well as vaccine passports requiring mRNA or emergency use authorized (EUA) shots for any disease, among other laws designed to cement health freedom in the state.
The sweeping package of health freedom laws also prevents employers from hiring or firing based on vaccination or immunity status, prevents facial covering or COVID-19 testing requirements for entry to any business, school, or government entity in the state, and ensures healthcare providers and payers can opt out of certain healthcare services due to conscience-based objections.
HB 1387 makes Florida the first state in the nation to outlaw research that enhances the ability of pathogens to cause disease, known as gain-of-function research.
During a press conference before DeSantis signed the legislation, he pointed out that gain-of-function research was halted in the U.S. in 2014 because of the realization that its “risks far outweigh the benefits.”
The WHO Pandemic Treaty looks set to be one of the biggest power-grabs in living memory, with unelected globalists seeking the power to declare pandemics, and then control your country's response.
But it's not too late to do something about it.
SIGN and SHARE this special petition telling Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus that the WHO will never usurp your nation's sovereignty.
The past two years have been rife with infringements on personal liberties and civil rights by national governments, but now the World Health Organization is seeking to appropriate those same abusive powers to itself at a global level.
194 member states representing 99% of the world's population are expected to sign pandemic treaties with the WHO that would allow Tedros, or any future Director General, to dictate exactly how your nation would respond to a new disease outbreak which they consider a pandemic.
This attack on national sovereignty will come as no surprise to those who for years have listened to elites like Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates discussing their vision for the centralization of power into globalist organizations like the World Economic Forum (WEF), the WHO and the rest of the United Nations.
SIGN this petition against the WHO's Pandemic Treaty, before it's too late.
Ludicrously, 20 world leaders calling for the treaty, including Tedros, Boris Johnson and Emmanuel Macron, compared the post-Covid world to the post-WWII period, saying similar co-operation is now needed to "dispel the temptations of isolationism and nationalism, and to address the challenges that could only be achieved together in the spirit of solidarity and co-operation - namely peace, prosperity, health and security."
Australian PM Scott Morrison is the latest leader to express support for a “pandemic treaty”.
The stated intention of the WHO is to “kickstart a global process to draft and negotiate a convention, agreement or other international instrument under the Constitution of the World Health Organization to strengthen pandemic prevention, preparedness and response.”
The wheels are already in motion, with the Biden administration officially proposing the initial steps towards handing global pandemic control to the WHO.
Biden's representatives have submitted amendments to the WHO's International Health Regulations (IHR), which would give the Director General the right to declare health emergencies in any nation, even when disputed by the country in question.
These amendments, which would be legally binding under international law, will be voted on by the World Health Assembly (the governing body of the WHO) at a special convention running from May 22-28 and set the stage for a fully-fledged pandemic treaty to be passed.
SIGN and SHARE the petition telling the WHO that you won't accept any pandemic treaty
The ball has been rolling since the last World Health Assembly meeting in December, where the United States launched negotiations "on a new international health instrument on pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response," a U.S. statement read.
"This momentous step represents our collective responsibility to work together to advance health security and to make the global health system stronger and more responsive.
"We look forward to broad and deep negotiations using a whole-of-society and whole-of-government approach that will strengthen the international legal framework for public health/pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response and enable us to address issues of equity, accountability, and multisectoral collaboration evident in the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We know it will take all of us working together across governments, private sector, philanthropy, academia, and civil society to make rapid progress towards a long-term solution for these complex problems," the U.S. statement added.
SIGN the petition today to show the WHO that you won't accept this attack on national sovereignty.
These are precarious times in which freedom and self-determination must be defended from those who would ride rough-shod over your civil rights.
We do not want to go back to global lockdowns, vaccine mandates and propoganda.
Sign the petition - speak up now!

He went on to note that the gain-of-function research was “inexplicably” brought back in 2017, and that “we know there was GOF research being conducted in Wuhan [that] very likely resulted in the emergence of COVID-19.”
SB 252 prevents various forms of “discrimination against Floridians related to COVID-19 vaccination or immunity status,” including the denial of organ donations due to lack of vaccination, DeSantis said during the press conference.
It expands existing legislation so that business and government entities “may not require any person” — not just patrons or customers — to provide any documentation certifying vaccination with an mRNA, emergency use authorized, or COVID-19 shot, or “post-infection recovery from COVID-19, or require a COVID-19 test,” in order to gain entry or service.
Businesses and government entities also “may not discharge or refuse to hire a person; deprive or attempt to deprive a person of employment opportunities … or otherwise discriminate against a person” due to lack of proof of vaccination with an mRNA, emergency use authorized, or COVID-19 shot, lack of proof of COVID-19 post-infection recovery, or failure to take a COVID-19 test.
For vaccines other than those specified (mRNA, EUA, COVID-19), “a business entity shall provide for exemptions and reasonable accommodations for religious and medical reasons in accordance with federal law.”
In addition, such entities may not require face coverings for entry or service, or “otherwise discriminat[e] against persons based on their refusal to wear a facial covering.”
SB 252 furthermore prevents hospitals from “interfer[ing] with a patient’s right to choose COVID-19 treatment alternatives as recommended by a healthcare practitioner with privileges at the hospital,” if informed consent is obtained from the patient.
Regarding such situations, “There’s a companion bill which will protect your medical privacy if you file a complaint,” DeSantis said during the accompanying press conference, referring to SB 238.
SB 1580 aims to protect doctors’ licenses “from medical or accreditation boards that are attempting to punish them for speaking out against the medical establishment.”
The law prohibits boards, or the Department of Health, from taking disciplinary action against or denying a license to an individual solely because they have publicly criticized or supported “a health care service or public policy.”
“These expanded protections will help ensure that medical authoritarianism does not take root in Florida,” DeSantis said in a statement about the legislation package.
