May 14, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — The former president of Planned Parenthood yesterday alluded to an urgent need for vaccine passports now that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released new guidance saying those who have received the COVID-19 vaccination can ditch their masks.
During an MSNBC panel discussion and in a later tweet, Dr. Leana Wen said that the CDC’s relaxation of masking policies for those who are vaccinated “only works if there’s a way to check vaccination status.”
“I am shocked by the CDC’s abrupt reversal of their guidelines for vaccinated people,” she wrote in her tweet. “While I agree that vaccinated can choose what they want to do, this only works if there’s a way to check vaccination status.”
“Otherwise, what’s to stop the unvaccinated from endangering everyone?” she asked, directly contradicting Dr. Anthony Fauci’s nearly simultaneous statement to NBC News’ Lester Holt that vaccinated people should have “no concern at all” about contact with non-vaccinated people.

“I do think that we need to send a very clear message that ‘vaccination is your ticket back to pre-pandemic life,’” allowed Wen on MSNBC. “But frankly I was shocked by the announcement. I think they went from one extreme to another, and the major step that’s missing here is: ‘How do we know that people are telling the truth [about vaccine status]?’”
Powerful nations of the world, including China, the UK, and Canada are discussing plans to require so-called 'vaccine passports' as a condition for travel, and possibly to restrict entry to shopping and entertainment venues.
Israel has already put in place a system to discriminate against those who choose not to take the COVID vaccine, and, in the United States, Joe Biden has signed a new executive order which could pave the way for the implementation of a 'vaccine passport' system. [See more below.]
This kind of medical dictatorship must be resisted, and therefore, we must act quickly before these authoritarian notions take root and spread!
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to SAY NO to government 'vaccine passports.' Tell your legislators to respect your freedom not to vaccinate without fear of repercussion.
People should not have to live in fear of government retribution for refusing a vaccine which is being rushed to market by Big Pharma and their fellow-travelers in NGOs, like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
It would be intolerable and immoral for the government to coerce someone, and their family, to take a COVID vaccine against their will just so they can do their weekly grocery shopping, go to a high school soccer game, travel on public transport, or visit their relatives who live in a different part of the country, or overseas.
Medical freedom must be respected in principle and also in practice.
So, it is now time that our policy-makers listen to all voices involved in this vital conversation, and start to represent those who will not tolerate being punished, restricted, or tracked for refusing an experimental vaccine.
Simply put, legislatures must begin to act as legislatures again.
Questions must be asked. Hearings and investigations must be held. And, the legislatures of each state and country must return to the business of representing the people who voted for them, assuming their rightful place as the originator of legislation.
We will no longer accept the dictates of executive branches without question. And, neither can we accept the dictates of some doctors who seem detached from reality and from science.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which asks national political leaders (as well as state and provincial legislators in the U.S. and Canada) to pledge to respect the rights of those who refuse a COVID vaccine, and NOT introduce 'vaccine passports,' or any other system which would discriminate on the basis of taking the COVID vaccine.

Wen brought up a hypothetical future trip to the grocery store, and wondered how unmasked patrons could be certain that everyone in the store not wearing a mask has had the COVID-19 shot.
“Who is going to be checking to see if others are also vaccinated?” she asked.
“So what does that mean if I’m bringing my son, my four-year-old who is not fully vaccinated,” she wondered. “Now he’s going to be in a grocery store potentially exposed to people who are not vaccinated who could be of danger to him.”
Wen admits she is ‘befuddled’
The former Planned Parenthood hancho admitted to being “befuddled.”
“And so I guess I’m kind of befuddled as to where this guidance came from,” said Wen. “I think there are a lot of steps that were missing. I was expecting to hear something about outdoor mask guidance today, and also I was expecting to hear, ‘If fully vaccinated people are around others who are known to be fully vaccinated, they can fully let down their guard.’”
“I wasn’t expecting to hear, essentially, that indoor mask mandates can all go, because that’s what the CDC is saying. They’re saying, ‘We don’t need indoor mask mandates anymore,” she concluded.
