CNN Contributor Suggests Making it 'Hard' to be Unvaccinated

We are fast approaching the point of the pandemic in which everyone who wanted to be vaccinated against COVID-19 has achieved that goal.  For the government, this should be the point where they  pat themselves on the back for making those shots available as quickly as they did, and they move on.  After all, we have bodily sovereignty here in the United States, and the feds shouldn’t be sticking their nose too far into our business on that front.

But no.  Instead of respecting the decisions that so many Americans have made, it appears as though governmental forces and corporate entities are pushing the idea of treating unvaccinated Americans like second-class citizens, segregating them within crowds and requiring them to maintain stricter safety standards than the rest of us.

Now, one CNN contributor has said the quiet part out loud, stating that life should be “hard” for those who choose to remain unvaccinated.

CNN medical contributor Dr. Leana Wen suggested Saturday that life needs to be “hard” for Americans who have not received a COVID-19 vaccine and individuals who refuse to get shots should perhaps face weekly testings.

“It needs to be hard for people to remain unvaccinated,” Wen, the former Planned Parenthood president, said. “Right now, it’s kind of the opposite.”

Unvaccinated people, she fretted, can at the moment go about their lives as normal without any consequence.

“But at some point these mandates, by workplaces, by schools, I think it will be important to say, ‘Hey, you can opt out, but if you want to opt out, you have to sign these forms, you have to get twice weekly testing,’” Wen said. “Basically, we need to make getting vaccinated the easy choice.”

The sentiment isn’t likely to go over well with the roughly 30% of Americans who’ve decided against receiving a COVID-19 inoculation.
