Anti-Vaxxers Taking a Moral High Ground Are Hypocritical and Dangerous
Yesterday, “Black Panther” co-star Leticia Wright found herself under heavy criticism for sharing an anti-vaxx video on Twitter.
Following the expected backlash, for her part she said she did not mean to hurt anyone. See here.
Also, as per the agenda of the “civil liberties” crowd, months ago they too expressed a stance to avoid any Covid-19 vaccinations enforced upon them.
As with Leticia, that’s their risk. Also as with Leticia, the danger comes from their influence.
Which makes this moment the perfect time to cause trouble.
Disseminating disinformation aside, whether inadvertently or otherwise, is one thing. Education is key, and I will delve into that aspect of this madness in a future article.
For now, I want to discuss the prevalent issue of the perceived morality of this equation.
Personally, I do not believe morality courses through the veins of anyone who continues to support the current presidential administration, under whose watch nearly 300,000 Americans have died, a large percentage of them needlessly, at the present rate of one person every 30 seconds.
The evangelical pro-Trump crowd is today having a field day espousing their opposition to Covid vaccinations on moral grounds.
Why? Because while the president touts the “warp speed” of the vaccine approvals, and takes credit for their delivery, he also touts by his actions not having to follow mask, social distancing or other protocol due to the aforementioned “civil liberties.”
It’s a mixed message. The latter wins.
The moral argument regards fetal tissue being used in Covid vaccinations, or used for research in their creation.
Here’s something provocative: I don’t care. I’m taking the damn vaccination, regardless. Here’s something else: It’s not true.
Fetal tissue has been cultured — lab grown — for use of vaccine development based on cell strains for decades. But even if it wasn’t, and there was existing human fetal tissue in the mix, I’d take the vaccine.
I’ll speak plainly. Last I checked, we cannot bring aborted fetuses back to life. In the event recently aborted fetal tissue was actually used in these cases — though all indications are this is not the case — moral issues aside, if those fetuses can now save (millions of) lives, does that not matter?
I would love to hear your thoughts …
