March 15, 2021 (American Thinker) — Although I know verification of health status is a reasonable condition of entry for countries, I am dubious about the fear of COVID as a cause for new conditions for international or domestic travel. Several countries are implementing or seriously considering having your COVID vaccination status indicated on your passport to gain entry. I am against this because, as a Catholic, I refuse to introduce something so untested long-term, and so unknown into the body God has given me. I will add that I simply do not believe that COVID is as deadly as it's been made out to be.
Leaving faith aside, I worry that just like the other damaging restrictions various governments have implemented, tying travel to COVID vaccination status is too disruptive. People like me won't be able to travel at all if this becomes the norm. As a consultant, I travel constantly, and I lost out on significant income in 2020 due to government-imposed restrictions. The incentive to feed our families will pressure millions of people to get vaccinated even though they don't want to.
Further, local businesses could require proof of vaccination to access their premises. All over the world, hotels customarily hold foreigners' passports while they stay. It is not very far-fetched, given the overblown fear of COVID, that businesses such as theaters, stadiums, and just about anywhere people gather will start requiring people to “show their papers.” We can have it noted on our driver's licenses just to make it a little easier than carrying two documents, or perhaps there's an app for that.
Regardless, now there is one more reason for the government, Big Tech, and others to track and restrict our movements. If you don't believe that all of them will end up abusing this, you're simply too young or too frightened to face the truth. Restricting people's movement based upon COVID vaccination status will not protect anyone anyway. If that were true, countries and states that implemented previous restrictions would not have the same incidences of COVID as countries and states that had few or no restrictions.

Mainstream media sources are promoting offensive suggestions by some doctors that people who refuse a vaccine for COVID-19 should be "punished" by the government and by business - effectively coercing them into taking the vaccine.
- One group of doctors writing in 'USA Today' suggested that the government impose special taxes (i.e., fines) on people who refuse the vaccination and that business simply refuse to serve them. [see story below]
- Another doctor writing in an online publication called 'The Conversation' shamelessly suggested that people who refuse a vaccine should be given a psychoactive drug to induce compliance. [see story below]
But, these suggestions are plain political posturing, and have nothing to do with science or with the recent trends of the disease.
And, in case they haven't noticed, we live in a democracy not a medical dictatorship!
Please SIGN this urgent petition which asks policy-makers and business people, at all levels, to pledge to respect the rights of those who, in good conscience, decide not to vaccinate themselves or their children.
People should not have to live in fear of governmental or corporate 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 or business to coerce someone, and their family, to take a COVID vaccine against their will to avoid a fine, or just so they can do their weekly grocery shopping.
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 for refusing a 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 can no longer accept the dictates of executive branches without question, especially now that, statistically speaking, the initial brunt of the COVID crisis has passed.
Neither can we accept the dictates of doctors who seem detached from reality and from science, and who only seem to be attached to the idea of promoting ideas which contribute to the agrandizement of power and control of political interests, and wealth of those who stand to make a lot of money from the sale of a COVID vaccine.
Please SIGN this urgent petition which asks government and business leaders to pledge to respect the rights of those who refuse a COVID vaccine, and not seek to punish them for doing so.

We cannot sterilize the world, and as I've said before, if you want to increase your chances of survival, masks and stamped passports are not the answer. Rather, eat healthily, get off the P.C., work out, and don't get fat. Obesity and its related conditions — along with advanced age — are the reasons 94% of people die with COVID. Not from COVID — but with COVID. We need not only to lift the current restrictions, but to prevent foolhardy new restrictions from going into effect.
