We’re watching two interesting pieces of legislation in Texas right now re: COVID-19 “vaccinations” at the same time there are rumors swirling that the Navy Seals may be required to reimburse the government for training if they are terminated for failure to submit to the shot.
In Texas, SB51 has passed out of committee and is ready for the Senate. The bill would provide the same mandatory exemptions for the COVID-19 “vaccination” as are provided for other vaccinations in Texas. See the text of the bill: SB 51 .
Also making its way through the Texas House is HB168, requiring true informed consent be afforded anyone getting a vaccination. An individual who is compelled or coerced contrary to the person’s vaccination preference is not exercising informed consent. Healthcare providers would be forbidden to administer a shot without a person’s informed consent. See the text of the bill: HB 168 .
The combination of the two bills provides individual safety and consent upon which our system is based. These two bills codify the principle that you can cajole a person to take a shot, but you cannot force a medical procedure on anyone.
And what about the federal government decision-maker who “cleverly” leaked that the government may require a Navy Seal who refuses a shot to reimburse the government for training costs upon leaving the Navy for failing to submit to a medical procedure? Once again, the government is applying pressure without taking any real action. But this time, I think they went too far. Certainly, in the civilian world this threat would make it difficult to claim an employee had a choice. After all, what is the value of that training? Some unofficial sources put a $350,000 to $500,000 price tag on the training.
Whether or not the federal government ever charges one Seal for his training, the threat is coercion. Even if the cost is $100,000, that is a lot of money for an unemployed person to repay. The threat of that bill coming due, whether it does or not, more than likely eliminates the ability for an employee to give informed consent. I am not versed in military law, but every citizen should be outraged by this threat to people who are on the front lines defending us. And what will this do for our ability to recruit military personnel?
The court battles will be fierce. Who would ever imagine employees and military personnel would have to go to court to force employers and the government to stop such illegal activities?
What happened to anti-bullying campaigns?
More is sure to come.
UPDATE: 10/21/21. The third legislative session for the State of Texas has come to a close. And, neither SB51 nor HB168 made it to the finish line.
