Justice Stephen Breyer, who handles emergency requests from Maine, said he issued the denial “without prejudice,” which means that the applicants can file another request if circumstances change.
This was truly a crushing blow for the health workers in Maine!
The court decided to refuse to block the mandate that the health workers should be vaccinated against COVID 19.
This represents a threat for the entire nation, since, courts can call upon this verdict to issue mandates for health care employees all around the USA!
“This lawsuit was filed by the Christian group Liberty Counsel, which claims to represent some 2,000 health care workers who are against the mandate for religious reasons. While Maine recognizes medical exemptions to the vaccine, it does not recognize religious exemptions,” The Hill reported.
“Governor Mills cannot override federal law and ignore the legal right of all Maine health care workers to request reasonable accommodation for their sincerely held religious beliefs, and forcing shots without exemptions is unlawful,” Liberty Counsel founder and chairman Mat Staver said in a statement last week.
“Forcing COVID shots without exemptions is unlawful,” he later added.
“The governor cannot override federal law and force health care workers to violate their sincerely held religious beliefs by forcing them to inject an experimental substance.”
Americans everywhere should be ABSOLUTELY free to make their own decisions about whether or not to get vaccinated without having to worry about losing their jobs based on what they decide. It’s unfortunate that despite having a conservative majority, the Supreme Court has come to this ruling.
