Of late, there has been a lot of noise about mandatory vaccines. We came back from the festive season break to find many businesses and academic institutions implementing and imposing mandatory vaccination policies on their employees, students, and staff from the end of last year.

On the 24th June 2021 I wrote an article discussing the unconstitutionality of mandatory vaccination passports and policies and legislation.

The recent Supreme Court decisions in the USA and the Superior Court of Canada regarding mandatory vaccines have, to a great extent, supported this view.

In this matter, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), a federal agency in the USA, had given businesses until February 9th to comply with the mandatory vaccine rules or face the possibility of fines.

The USA Supreme Court (highest Court in the land) however, ruled that the mandate would represent a “significant encroachment into the lives – and health – of a vast number of employees.”

Another precedent-setting-case in Ontario, Canada – Coutinho v. Ocular Health Centre Ltd., 2021 ONSC 3076 – found Ontario’s Infectious Disease Emergency Leave Regulation (IDEL) under the Employment Standards Act which was enacted at the beginning of the pandemic, did not take away a dismissed employee’s right to sue for constructive dismissal. Justice David Broad found that COVID-related temporary layoff is constructive dismissal. This was the judgement of the Ontario Superior Court.

These critical court cases should send a very loud message to the USA, Canada, and nations around the world and let them know that you cannot ‘willy nilly’ impose mandatory vaccines on people and endanger and encroach into the lives and health of people.

There is a vast difference between being an “anti-vaxxer” and being a “Pro-choicer”. Most people who are against mandatory vaccinations have been erroneously labelled as “anti-vaxxers” and yet the truth is that many of these people, including myself, have been vaccinated early on in childhood. If one has previously been vaccinated then it is false to label them as an “anti-vaxxer”.

What people are opposed to is not vaccinations, per se, but to improperly tested vaccinations being made mandatory. This is more so when such vaccinations still fall under clinical trial experimentation phase and the adverse effects associated with the vaccine have not been fully comprehended.

In this battle of mandatory vaccines, the one thing we must not lose sight of is defending our constitutional rights. Freedom of Choice is both a God-given right and a constitutional right .

Deuteronomy 30:19 says, “I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you today that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing. Therefore choose life, so that you and your descendants may live.” This scripture demonstrates that God has given us free will and freedom of choice.

Section 10 of Chapter 2 of the Constitution in the SA Bill of rights affords us all the “right to dignity” which the Courts have interpreted to include the right to “freedom of choice”. Section 12 (c) of the same constitution affords one the right to bodily and psychological integrity, which includes the right: (c) not to be subjected to medical or scientific experiments without their informed consent.

This battle goes beyond mandatory vaccines. It is a battle to secure hard fought and hard won constitutional rights. We cannot afford to lose those rights. Today the constitutional rights issues are centered around “mandatory vaccines”. Tomorrow it will be a different issue, but with the same agenda of taking away the rights of citizens. This is a clandestine and stealthy move towards totalitarianism, authoritarianism, and dictatorship.

Arise citizens and defend your God-given, biblical, constitutionally-entrenched rights and contend for the faith!

  1. I am in agreement with this article and strongly oppose mandating “vaccinations” for all the reasons you have stated. I live in a retirement home and they became quite unkind at times about those who would not comply with being vaccinated. now that the booster is available once again I am being mocked, its okay, so was Jesus.
    keeping my eyes on Him,The Author and Finisher of my faith.

  2. I was bitten by a bug never seen before and a local doctor insisted that I be admitted to hospital. I was assaulted, my hair was pulled, I wasn’t allowed to get water, the one nurse slapped me every chance she got, pushed me over the bed. I was held down and was forced to take a PCR test against my will. I fought back and demanded a Refuse Hospital Treatment form and said I was going to report the abuse I received. They decided to let me go. I have had nightmares since I’ve been home. The entire experience was horrifying and it was only my faith and constantly praying that gave me strength. I saw demons dressed as nurses, but there were angels there too who helped me. The hospital was a place of evil incarnate. I pray for all of the people who have no defense against the abuse that is being carried out against them, it was horrific.
