Believe it or not the same people who push a pro-abortion agenda may not have the best interests of children at heart.

Christianity Daily: Former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center Dr. Ben Carson recently expressed his opposition to vaccinating children against COVID. Dr. Carson, who was also the Trump administration’s Housing and Urban Development Secretary, called vaccinating children against COVID a “giant experiment.”

In a recent appearance at Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Dr. Carson was asked by host Maria Bartiromo if he thinks children should be inoculated against COVID. He replied, “Absolutely not.”

“The fact of the matter is, the mortality rate for children from COVID-19 is 0.025, which is very similar to the rate for seasonal flu,” Dr. Carson reasoned, as reported by The Blaze. “And we haven’t been for years and years going through all these things for seasonal flu.”

Dr. Carson argued that the long-term implications of the pediatric COVID vaccines are currently unknown, which should spark red flags for parents. He said, “We don’t know what the long-term impact of these vaccines is, so this is really sort of a giant experiment.”

It’s worth noting that a Harvard professor of immunology who also serves as a voting member of the FDA advisory committee, Dr. Eric Ruben, indicated that the push to get kids vaccinated is like running an experiment to see what potential effects will have on children.

“We’re never gonna learn about how safe the vaccine is until we start giving it,” Dr. Ruben said.

Dr. Carson cast doubt on the efficacy of the vaccines for children, asking rhetorically if parents wanted to “put our children at risk, when we know that the risk of the disease to them is relatively small” especially when “we don’t know what the future risks are.”

You cool with gambling with your children’s health? Me neither.

According to TIME, a poll from last month showed how only 27% of parents who have children aged 5 to 11 intend to have their children vaccinated against COVID right away. The same poll showed that 30% said they will “definitely not” have their kids vaccinated.

That’s a significant pushback.

I know they’re going to try to eke mandates in. Philly public schools have already mandated that students who wish to play a sport must be vaccinated. This is a trial balloon to see how much pushback they get. If there isn’t a pushback then they will mandate everyone.

When these mandates come (and they will come) they must be resisted.
