May 17, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — LifeSite’s petition rejecting mandatory coronavirus vaccination has been signed almost one million times since its launch last May.
“People of goodwill can disagree about the safety, efficacy and religious implications of a new vaccine for the coronavirus,” states the petition, before affirming that “everyone can agree,” however, that no level of government should forcibly vaccinate adults, or vaccinate minors against the will of their parents or guardians.
“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,” states the petition. Nor may people be forced to receive vaccines produced using cells derived from aborted babies, as this technique is gravely immoral.
In April 2021, CNBC released a segment arguing that states, cities, and employers can force citizens to get vaccinated.
Indeed, pressure to receive the COVID-19 jab continues to mount as institutions are requiring COVID-19 vaccinations in increasing numbers. Among others, Delta Air Lines is requiring new hires to receive the COVID-19 jab, and The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) has reported there is a trend showing vaccination requirements for employees in a variety of other fields, including office workers, restaurant waiters, and medical staff.
Freedom to breathe has also become an incentive for vaccination, with the CDC’s recently released guidance stating, “Fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing.”
In even more direct terms, President Joe Biden tweeted, “The rule is now simple: get vaccinated or wear a mask until you do. The choice is yours.”
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.

LifeSite’s petition was originally launched as a response to troubling statements made in earlier stages of the COVID-19 outbreak by officials and “influencers” pushing for forced or universal vaccination.
Microsoft billionaire turned vaccine financier Bill Gates declared that society will not return to “normal” until widespread vaccination for the coronavirus has taken place.
Liberal Democratic lawyer Alan Dershowitz also argued that states have a “right” to forcibly vaccinate residents and “plunge a needle into your arm.”
The petition reminds officials that “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.”
