If it were JUST gene therapy, I might take it if it meant being able to support my family.
But given the abortive origins of it, I can't take it even if it means getting fired.
I would tell them, "I'll take it the minute you produce one that doesn't use aborted babies."
Not sure if Sputnik V used babies.
The problem is that there are many, many complications which come down the road which may very well make it impossible for you to provide for your family. Cytokine Storms!
The employer mandate thread goes into that more.
And you do NOT legally have to take it.
Even if there is a perfectly safe shot without human sacrifice involvement,
NO EMPLOYER HAS THE RIGHT TO DEMAND YOU PUT SOMETHING IN YOUR BODY.
Most importantly an experimental medical treatment.
That goes against the Neuremberg trials.
And even with a proven medication, there are risks and complications and no employer can "mandate" that.
Will they take responsibility for the adverse effects?
It's a farce and if we won't draw the line at requiring masks and lσcкdσωns etc. we must draw the line at our bodily integrity!
The precedent they are setting is enormous!
