Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ New Plan Prohibits Vaccine Passports & Protects Doctor’s Free Speech
Ron DeSantis recently announced plans to put forward legislation that will prevent Florida from transforming into a “biomedical security state.” The legislation will prohibit all vaccine passport mandates.
DeSantis proclaimed that the bill’s aim is to “prescribe freedom.”
“When the world lost its mind, Florida was a refuge of sanity, serving strongly as freedom’s linchpin,” the Republican governor stated on January 17, 2023. “These measures will ensure Florida remains this way and will provide landmark protections for free speech for medical practitioners.”
“It required us over the past few years to stand against major institutions in our society: The bureaucracy, the medical establishment, legacy media, and even the President of the United States who, together, were working to impose a biomedical security state on society,” he continued
Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo signaled his support for the bill due to how it would safeguard medical professionals’ ability to freely exchange ideas among themselves.
“As a health sciences researcher and physician, I have personally witnessed accomplished scientists receive threats due to their unorthodox positions,” Ladapo commented. “However, many of these positions have proven to be correct, as we’ve all seen over the past few years. All medical professionals should be encouraged to engage in scientific discourse without fearing for their livelihoods or their careers.”
In addition, DeSantis’ legislation would defend medical professionals’ freedom of speech by protecting their religious beliefs and their right to offer dissent to the prevailing narrative. In addition, the bill bolsters medical freedom of choice by prohibiting discrimination based on mask usage, testing, and vaccination status.
At some point, the Right will have to come to grips with the fact that the managerial elites will not be convinced by arguments. They will ultimately learn their lesson when the Right starts using legislative force to rein in the managerial class’s excesses.
DeSantis is showing the GOP how to behave against predatory enemies on the Left. Let’s hope that other Republican leaders take note and start signing tough legislation that punishes their enemies and upholds freedoms.
