Just before I start this blog, I will state that I am not an anti vaxer…I am however anti-lemming.
I am also anti media and political hypocrisy and will call it out when I see it.
Last week, the Queensland Government passed laws to allow ‘assisted dying’, ‘euthanasia’, ‘suicide’, whatever term you want to assign to it.
There were passionate, sad and emotional stories in the State Parliament as politicians debated the emotive and controversial legislation. It was about ‘dying with dignity’ and ‘being empowered to die when the person chooses’. Protestors outside of parliament held placards often held by pro choice abortionists ‘My Body My Choice’.
Our state leaders and media hailed the vote as a great victory. People can now ‘choose’ to die with dignity. They have the power over their body.
So the celebration was all about people’s choice over their body right?
Yes, is the right answer.
Now what about healthy people who do not want to be vaccinated? Do they have power of their body? Well clearly this is where the media and politicians suddenly change. You do not have power over your body….if you want to have any sense of personal freedoms, like going to the pub, going shopping, going to church, crossing state borders, getting on a plane etc. So, when it comes to the covid vaccines, it clearly is ‘not my body my choice’.
So they celebrate the power of choice in one instance, whilst pretty much removing all choice in another?
And no one calls BS on it. Why is that? (well that is the subject of another blog)
I end with this thought…I am being encouraged to get vaccinated so that I protect the most vulnerable members of our society, whilst the Govt just voted to allow the most vulnerable members of our society to kill themselves….Oh sorry, I meant die with dignity.
Anyway, that’s what I think.
And here is a link to my blog about Euthanasia I wrote a few years ago
