As the number of Covid-19 cases continues to climb, more and more people are looking for ways to protect themselves from the virus.
The US Army has announced that it will begin discharging soldiers who refuse to be vaccinated against Covid-19.
This decision is sure to provoke a reaction from conservatives, who value individual liberty above all else. Is the Army overstepping its bounds by forcing people to be vaccinated? Or is this a necessary step in order to protect the troops and the country as a whole?
The discharge of soldiers who refuse to be vaccinated against Covid-19 has caused a lot of controversies. While some people argue that it is necessary to ensure the safety of all troops, others claim that it is an infringement on their rights. No one can seem to agree on the right thing to do, and the situation remains contentious.
However, the Pentagon is standing by its move to discharge any member of the Army due to their refusal to take the COVID 19 Vaccination.
The US Army will begin discharging soldiers who refuse to be vaccinated against the coronavirus unless the service member has an approved exemption or pending request.
“Army readiness depends on Soldiers who are prepared to train, deploy, fight and win our nation’s wars, Unvaccinated Soldiers present risk to the force and jeopardize readiness.
We will begin involuntary separation proceedings for Soldiers who refuse the vaccine order and are not pending a final decision on an exemption.” Army Secretary Christine Wormuth said in a statement Wednesday Washington (CNN)
The argument for discharge is that refusing the vaccine puts other soldiers at risk. I know I will probably get some disagreements to my saying this, but it’s a good discussion starter. When you sign up for the military, you are making a commitment to serve your country.
Part of that commitment includes taking precautions to protect yourself and your fellow soldiers. One of the ways you can do that is by getting vaccinated against dangerous diseases. If you refuse to get vaccinated, you are putting yourself and others at risk. That is why I believe that anyone who refuses a vaccine should be discharged from the military.
The right to freedom of conscience is a fundamental human right that is enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This means that people have the right to believe or not believe whatever they choose, and to practice their religion freely, or not practice it at all.
With this in mind, many people are outraged by the proposal to discharge members of the military who do not agree with President Biden’s Vaccination mandate for the military. Some argue that this violates their right to freedom of conscience. No matter which side you fall on, it is important to consider the implications of discharging servicemembers for exercising their right to freedom of conscience.
As much as I love this country and our military which is the might of The United States, They stand ready at any given moment to respond to any danger we the people may come under. As I stated early on in my article, you commit to serving your country when you sign up for the military.
God Bless America, God Bless the Veterans
