PARIS, France (LifeSiteNews) – The European Court of Human Rights has rejected an emergency appeal launched by French firemen against the COVID-19 inoculation mandate. 

The Court’s decision was made public on Wednesday. 

On Tuesday, 672 French firefighters presented their appeal to the European Court of Human Rights, invoking “the right to life” as well as the “right to private and family life.” The group requested an end to the “vaccine” mandate imposed in France since August 5. They also asked for the withdrawal of “provisions banning those firefighters from exercising their activity” who “have not yet complied with the vaccine mandate” and measures aimed at “withholding their salary.” 

The appeal was rejected by the Court on the grounds that “the requests made were outside of the scope of article 39 of the Court’s regulations.” Article 39 allows plaintiffs to appeal the Court via an emergency procedure when they are “exposed to a real risk of irreparable damage.”  

However, though the emergency character of the appeal was rejected, the requests themselves were not. They will continue to be considered by the seven judges tasked with studying the case.

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.

The justices have said that their decision to reject the urgent appeal “has no bearings on any future decisions of the court and does not weigh in on the admissibility or basis of the case.”  

This open door nevertheless provides small consolation to the hundreds of firefighters behind the appeal, who, according to France’s August 5 law on the management of the COVID crisis, have until September 15 to get at least one dose of a COVID injection or face losing their salary.  

Moreover, until September 15 all firefighters must undergo regular testing against COVID-19. Earlier this month, some firefighters in the department (administrative region) of Haute-Savoie were suspended for not conforming to this rule.  

The experimental COVID jabs have been linked to thousands of deaths and millions of serious side effects worldwide. In addition, Catholics and other Christians object to the medical products because cell lines derived from aborted babies were used in their development.

Sud SDIS, the French firefighters’ union that launched the appeal, has said it is not “against the vaccine” but against “the vaccine mandate,” a measure it described as “very much unwelcomed, even by already vaccinated firefighters.” 

On Monday, the union called for unlimited nation-wide strikes to request the withdrawal of the vaccine mandate as well as contract termination measures that could be implemented as of November 15 against unvaccinated firefighters.
