In May, these bills were introduced by the Rhode Island Department of Health. While many who attended the hearings suggested that an OPT IN with informed written consent should be added, including the RIACLU (see below) it has fallen on deaf ears.
The Threat to Liberty & Health
The erosion of medical freedom and privacy under the guise of protecting the public health is a threat to individual liberty. It is a threat to the very foundation of freedom as we have known it since the Constitution was ratified in 1787 and amended by the Bill of Rights in 1791.
A de facto medical dictatorship, which has been set up by government health officials using police powers assigned by state legislatures, affirmed by the Supreme Court in Jacobson v Massachusetts, fueled by federal funds, and aided by politicians eager to believe that doctors should track citizens “for the greater good,” is destroying the most sacred of all individual freedoms: the human right to self determination.
The human right to choose what one is willing to die for or, in the case of a parent, what one is willing to risk a child’s life for is a basic human right. If the state can tag, track down and force citizens against their will to be injected with biologicals of known and unknown toxicity today, then there will be no limit on what individual freedoms the state can take away in the name of the greater good tomorrow.
