July 15, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Former Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius said Americans who refuse the experimental coronavirus vaccine ought to have limited mobility and participation in society.
On Tuesday night, CNN “OutFront” host Erin Burnett spoke with Sebelius. In addition to being the Secretary of Health and Human Services under the Obama administration, Sebelius served as the governor of Kansas from 2003 to 2009.
Sebelius is well-known to pro-lifers. During her time as HHS Secretary, she was responsible for the contraceptive mandate ordering employers to participate in the provision of contraception, including abortion-inducing drugs, in their health care plans.
As governor, she used her power to protect the legality of late-term abortion facilities.
During the TV interview, Sebelius said she wants COVID-19 vaccines to be fully approved by the FDA. Currently, the COVID vaccines are available under “Emergency Use Authorization.” She also encouraged private businesses to force their employees to receive the experimental shots.
“We’re in a situation where we have a wildly effective vaccine, multiple choices, lots available, free of charge,” she claimed. She failed to address the lack of evidence that the vaccines are effective or the dangerous effects.
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.

“We have folks who are just saying I won’t do it,” she continued. “I think that it’s time to say to those folks, it’s fine if you don’t choose to get vaccinated.”
“You may not come to work. You may not have access to a situation where you’re going to put my grandchildren in jeopardy, where you might kill them, or you might put them in a situation where they’re going to carry the virus to someone in a high-risk position,” Sebelius said, despite the fact that COVID-19 poses almost no risk to children and there is a lack of evidence that asymptomatic people can transmit the virus.
“That’s, I think, the point where we are, is freedom is one thing, but freedom when you harm others like secondhand smoke and issues that we’ve dealt with very clearly in the past,” she added, but did not explain how someone with vaccine-induced immunity could contract the virus from an unvaccinated person.
“So I think we’re reaching that point in the United States where those of us who are vaccinated, I want to take off my mask,” Sebelius continued, even though the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has already said vaccinated people needn't wear masks.
“I want to be able to live my life with vaccination, and right now, I’m being impinged on by people who say I don’t want to get vaccinated,” she said. “It’s fine. I want them to maybe have a limitation on where they can go and who they can possibly infect.”
