Ohio lawmakers want to abolish vaccine requirements:

[...] Lawmakers are working on legislation to call off the lottery immediately. They're also trying to head off any plans for "vaccine passports." And last month, they introduced a sweeping antivaccination bill that would essentially demolish public health and vaccination requirements in the state—and not just requirements for COVID-19 vaccines, requirements for any vaccine.

[...] State Rep. Beth Liston (D-Dublin) blasted the bill, telling The Columbus Dispatch, "Not only would it prevent schools, businesses and communities from putting safety measures in pace related to COVID, it will impact the health of our children... This bill applies to all vaccines—polio, measles, meningitis, etc. If it becomes law we will see worsening measles outbreaks, meningitis in the dorms, and children once again suffering from polio."

[...] "At its core, this proposal would destroy our current public health framework that prevents outbreaks of potentially lethal diseases, threatens the stability of our economy as it recovers from a devastating pandemic and jeopardizes the way we live, learn, work and celebrate life," the letter said.

[...] "HB 248 would put all Ohioans at risk while increasing the cost of health care for families, individuals and businesses," spokesperson Dan Williamson said. "This proposal applies to all immunizations, including childhood vaccines. If passed, this legislation could reverse decades of immunity from life-threatening, but vaccine-preventable diseases such as measles, mumps, hepatitis, meningitis and tuberculosis."

    Who is killing your family? Cannibals? Humanburgers??

    Your hysterical hyperbole is what bothers us. No one is forcing you to get vaccinated, no one is forcing you to wear a mask in your own home or when you walk down the street.

    You are free to reject vaccination, but don't whine when you're barred from certain activities or travel abroad. What's that? Consequences for your own choices? Womp womp

    And if you have your way, ignoring facts like herd immunity was achieved late last year (oh, God forbid you listen to any M.D. or scientist that doesn't get air time on CNN), we'll end up with a two-tiered society where some of us are more equal than others. How "Animal Farm" of you! So enlightened!
    BTW, it shows that you're doing a really poor job of "Knowing your enemy".
    How about you spend 15 minutes outside you echo chamber and see for yourself what "the other side" is saying.
    The side that is not allowed on mainstream media?
    I recommend the short video of Dr. Peter McCullough from Texas A&M. You can find it on Bitchute.

      Herd immunity would result in the number of infections going down. Because, see, it's sort of an immunity.

      Let's give it a check [worldometers.info]. Whoops, the maximum number of new infections is around Jan 08 2021. And the going down after can be attributed to many other causes, mask and distancing included.

      I recommend the short video of Dr. Peter McCullough from Texas A&M.

      If you spouted the non-sense above based on that one, I recommend you take that recommendation and stick it up your ass - at least you may derive some pleasure in doing something with an otherwise worthless piece of stuff.

      You need a better class of facts.

      we'll end up with a two-tiered society where some of us are more equal than others.

      It's the typical structure of willing ignorant versus not. Your choice which tier you choose to belong to.

      Your right to not be injected with stuff is matched by our right not be infected by preventable diseases. And there's more of us.
