Ethics and Compulsory Covid-19 Shots

By: David Gordon

Julie Ponesse, a philosophy professor specializing in ethics who until recently taught at the University of Western Ontario in Canada, has a moving video in which she protests the requirement at her university that she get a covid-19 vaccination in order to continue teaching. She points out that it is her absolute right to decide what substances are injected into her body, and that this should settle the question of whether the requirement is legitimate. In this case, there is also a supplementary argument to be considered. The evidence does not show the vaccine works, and there is reason to believe it has harmful effects. At the end of the video, she breaks down in tears over the prospect of being unable able to continue her twenty-one years of teaching. She was in fact fired.
