Personal human liberty is a strong argument against vacine mandates. But for the moment, let's have a medical discussion.
SoonerPolitics is sharing stories from readers about the vaccine decisions that their household faces. we'd like to hear from more of you. Please comment or email your family perspectives and experiences. We'd love to add your own perspectives for future publications.
For most folks it comes down to a risk/benefit assessment. To that end, if a treatment is not properly tested and/or found to not meet it's own claims, then the reliability & integrity of the medical authorities is harmed greatly.
If the harms from the treatment exceed the initial warnings, then folks will not only stop further treatments, but be less trusting in the future.
The govt. is supposed to be a watchdog over the pharma industry, but they've become a cheerleader for big pharma and appear to be covering up important risk data.
Of the four recipients who've been recognized as 'Citizen of the Year' since we began the tradition in 2018, all of them are keen to utilize the principle of collaboration for extending human rights. OK2A President, Don Spencer (2019 COTY recipient), has worked extensively with OKHPR and other causes. Attorneys Frank Urbanic and Ron Durbin have been active in the courtrooms, legislative chambers, and agency boardrooms.
Even when good statutes are passed, state agencies have frequently surpassed or stifled the intent of the lawmakers(as Ron Durbin demonstrated in 2018). Sometimes a litigation is needed, as was the case last year when Frank Urbanic prevailed to end the governor's edict which would have bankrupted hundreds of restaurants and taverns, and put thousands of employees out of work.
All of the COTY recipients have gone far beyond collaborating with lawmakers. They deal with state agencies and even advocate in courtroom litigation when needed. They also help form the electoral process by backing fellow advocates who seek elective and appointed offices.
SoonerPolitics is honored to be a part of honoring some of Oklahoma's great advocates for liberty.
- David Van Risseghem, Chairman of the COTY committee for SoonerPolitics.
