Brazil’s Supreme Court rules against human rights, supports mandatory coronavirus vaccines
Brazil President Jair Bolsonaro recently said he would not partake in the coronavirus vaccine experiment. Now the Supreme Court of Brazil is trying to make Brazilians believe that they have no rights, that they have to take the shots or they will be . A mob of ten out of eleven justices on Brazil’s Supreme Court support mandatory coronavirus vaccines, an assault on the principles of informed consent and medical privacy.
Supreme Court wrote that anyone who refuses the new vaccines could face sanctions from federal, state and local governments. Lewandowski said, “the aggregate well-being can’t be hurt by the individuals who purposely decline to be inoculated.”
According to the ruling, individuals who cannot show will not be able to partake in certain activities or frequent certain buildings, venues or public gatherings. Brazil’s Supreme Court ruled that no one can physically force the shots into people’s bodies, but society could be structured in a way to exclude the unvaccinated. Civil authorities could require proof of vaccination at the local level, punishing individuals who do not submit by imposing fines and social ostracizing.
Only one justice voted against mandatory inoculations. President Bolsonaro supported the lone, dissenting justice: “Nobody can force anybody to take the vaccine. We’re dealing with lives, where is our freedom?”
