Vaccine mandates without reasonable exemptions are not only unconscionable - they are criminal
Such restrictions must be necessary and proportionate to the risk and balanced against individual rights.
A young man about to complete his four year apprenticeship was unable to sit his final exam unless double vaccinated. No exemptions. The mum of a daughter who'd had an horrific reaction to a vaccine was told by the neurologist "your daughter must never have another vaccination".
Human rights can only be limited where that limitation is reasonable, necessary and proportionate in a free and democratic society based on human dignity, equality and freedom
Simply wanting to save
The severe allergic reaction had caused the girl's body to convulse so badly that it broke her bones. Recently that same neurologist refused to provide a COVID vaccination exemption for the daughter.
The mother simply wants to save her child. But this is but one of the many conversations I've had. And they all end pleading to me to help. What happened to first do no harm? Welcome to Australia.
Rights of the majority
You want to talk about the rights of the majority over the individual for the greater good - go right ahead. I'll continue to represent my people. Some time ago, I had an intractable situation. I'd exhausted every avenue on my constituent's behalf. So I grabbed the file and wrote across the front : When all else fails - there is always hope. And I sent it by hand to the Minister
In that instance, right and justice took precedence over populism, policy, prejudice, politics and fear. Vaccine mandates without reasonable exemptions are not only unconscionable - they are criminal.
