States can ’absolutely’ mandate vaccinations, says Alan Dershowitz

Lawyer Alan Dershowitz has said the Constitution gives state governments the power to forcibly vaccinate people in order to prevent the spread of a contagious disease. ’If you refuse to be vaccinated, the state has the power to literally take you to a doctor’s office and plunge a needle into your arm’, Dershowitz said. He added that one has ’no constitutional right to endanger the public’.

This is a dumb argument. It basically argues that the state can do whatever it wants with you, against your will, for the good of the population. That can be forced vaccinations, that can be whatever. The only thing I can think of that comes close to that is the draft... which you can still abstain from as a conciencous objector. This would be such massive overreach of government and would allow them to do basically anything to you.

Where specifically in the constitution does it say that the government has the power to hold its subjects at gunpoint and inject into them whatever the government wants. I’m all for vaccinations, they save lives. I get all my vaccines. But the government has no right to force me to inject anything into my body.

If the govt tries to mandate vaccinations, the people will burn the whole thing to the ground. Enforcing or even proposing something like that is the best way to lose election, no matter who you are in govt.

The constitution was not written to control the people. The constitution was written to put in controls and checks on the government. Case in point, the 2nd amendment protects my right to not have you forcibly inject some Microsoft bill gates bullshit chip into my arm. This statement will for sure be walked back.

No. You don't have a right to safety. It isn't in the constitution. My body my choice.

Oh trust me, I’m all about being vaccinated, I work in a hospital, I know the science behind it, and vaccinations are the way to go, and I strongly encourage everyone to keep up to date on their injections to help everyone else to stay safe. That being said, this is a textbook authoritarian line. “No one has a right to endanger the public” might be the dumbest and most thinly veiled excuse I’ve ever heard to enforce Government will. It can be used for just about anything, from cars to guns to alcohol. Don’t let them take away your rights in a moment of panic. Keep a level head and make sure they can’t take even more advantage of this crisis that they already have. And yes, I do know this is a Wendy’s, etc, etc.

Citizens can "absolutely" excercise their rights to remove you from power as well. Freedom isn't up for debate.

Doesn't the first amendment also say I can forcibly plunge bullets into them if they become tyrants?
