I cannot believe the way otherwise intelligent people are not taking the Covid vaccinations and encouraging others not to have them.
I got my vaccinations in February and April and got Covid in July.
Thanks to the vaccinations I got a very mild dose of Covid which was indeed unpleasant but not serious.
The people I’ve come across against the vacvines are mainly religious right-wingers, both Catholic and Protestant ones.
And some of them actually believe that the vaccines are a global conspiracy so that governments can track them – and also weaken their immune system.
And yet they all carry mobile phones – perfect devices for tracking people!
I am in favour of Covid passports.
If people have the right not to be vaccinated then the rest of have the right to not be infected by them.
With every right there is an obligation. The right not to have the vaccine gives you the increased responsability not to infect others
And if you choose not to have the vaccine you nust accept that the rest of have the right not to be in close proximity to you.
THE USE OF TISSUE FROM THE ABORTED:
I am anti-abortion except in the rarest of cases.
But the majority of people in many countries have voted for it and there is little or nothing we can do about it.
The fact that tissue from aborted babies was used in the production if the vaccines is something over which we had no control.
Refusing the vaccine because of the way in which they were manufactured is not necessarily a moral obligation for us.
In one way it’s the lesser of two evils. Not taking the vaccine and getting very sick or dying is not a moral obligation.
