It’s amazing this got as far as it did.
Federal Judge Trevor McFadden has temporarily blocked a law in Washington D.C. that would allow children 11-years old and up to receive the COVID-19 vaccination without parental consent. According to the Daily Wire, McFadden ruled that “the Minor Consent for Vaccinations Amendment Act of 2020 (MCA) ‘targets religious parents.’”
“States and the District are free to encourage individuals — including children — to get vaccines,” McFadden wrote in his ruling. “But they cannot transgress on the [National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act] Congress created. And they cannot trample on the Constitution.”
“A total of 42 states require parental consent for their children to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Two states, North Carolina and South Carolina, allow students to be vaccinated without parental consent as early as age 16,” the Daily Wire reports.
“Oregon state law allows children to be vaccinated without parental consent as early as 15 years old, while Alabama allows as early as 14 years of age. Some states also do not provide specific laws related directly to COVID-19 vaccinations for minors without parental consent, according to research from the Kaiser Family Foundation.”
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) attempted to stop the D.C. law last month, introducing an amendment to block federal funds to schools and child care centers that mandate COVID-19 vaccines for students and young children.
“Enough is enough. It’s time to stop the petty tyrants imposing COVID-19 vaccine mandates on families across the country,” Cruz said in a statement.
“No child should be denied an education because of his or her personal medical choice. Schools shouldn’t get federal taxpayer dollars to trample on our constitutional liberties. It’s time for all of us to take a stand. Are you with parents and kids, or power hungry politicians?” he added.
