MADISON, Wisconsin, February 5, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Wisconsin Republicans repealed Democrat Gov. Tony Evers’ indoor mask mandate on Thursday, only for Evers to replace it with another mandate just an hour later.
The Wisconsin assembly voted to repeal Evers’ public health emergency order containing the mandate, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported, arguing the governor lacked the legal authority to issue it in the first place. Evers quickly reimposed the mandate, declaring mask-wearing “the most basic thing we can do to keep each other safe.”
“If the Legislature keeps playing politics and we don’t keep wearing masks, we're going to see more preventable deaths, and it’s going to take even longer to get our state and our economy back on track,” Evers declared.

“Governor Evers has abused his limited authority for far too long by repeatedly issuing unlawful orders beyond his 60-day emergency powers,” said Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos and Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu in a joint statement. “The Assembly and Senate voted to end the executive overreach and restore our constituents' voice in the legislative process.”
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.

Republican state Sen. Steve Nass has announced that he will draft another resolution to repeal this latest order as well, but LeMahieu says he would prefer leaving it to the “Supreme Court of Wisconsin to end this constitutional crisis.” The state Supreme Court heard arguments on the mask mandate in November, and has yet to issue its ruling in the case.
“Until the sudden spike in COVID deaths in late September and early October (which coincided with the normal start of cold and flu season), there was no discernible change in the number of COVID deaths per day over the summer, indicating that the mask mandate did nothing to lower the number of deaths,” Dan O’Donnell of the conservative MacIver Institute wrote.
“In the 139 days from March 15th (when DHS first started tracking new COVID cases) to July 31st (the day before the mask mandate went into effect), there were 52,940 total cases and an average of 380.8 per day,” he continued. “In the first 139 days after the mask mandate took effect, there were 395,501 new cases for an average of 2,845.3 per day.”
In the early days of the coronavirus outbreak, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams counseled against wearing masks, as did White House COVID adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci, claiming they were ineffective at blocking COVID. But the public later learned that health officials actually wanted to discourage the general public from buying masks to conserve the supply for health workers.
Despite the popular insistence that masking is essential outside one’s home, there remain reasons to doubt their effectiveness, such as the CDC’s September acknowledgement that masks cannot be counted on to keep out the coronavirus when spending 15 minutes or longer within six feet of someone, or a May 2020 study published by CDC’s peer-reviewed journal Emerging Infectious Diseases that “did not find evidence that surgical-type face masks are effective in reducing laboratory-confirmed influenza transmission, either when worn by infected persons (source control) or by persons in the general community to reduce their susceptibility.”
