People may in good faith hold differing opinions over their personal need for the vaccine, and an informed and factual debate about it is entirely beneficial and appropriate. However, what is not up for debate is the right of bodily autonomy. Every individual should have the opportunity to evaluate the evidence and make the choice that they find best suited for themselves. Just like every other medical choice, the choice to be vaccinated is (and should always be) in the hands of the individual. Never should this choice be made by politicians and bureaucrats for other individuals. History is littered with example after grisly example of governments inflicting all sorts of evil on their own populace under the ostensibly benign auspices of health, safety, or “the common good.” We cannot allow our government to take us down that road.
