Pennsylvania’s Mastriano Offers Up Bill That Eradicates Rights Of The People

What is it with some who profess to be “free” that do not understand wherein their freedom lies? Those who profess freedom are quick to succumb to the flowery language of those who seek to continue oppression. Senator Doug Mastriano, senator in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, has supposedly put forth a bill in the Pennsylvania senate that would fight against the latest mandate for CONvid-19 injections by the Center for Disease Control (CDC). Yet, the language of his “bill” suggests otherwise. But, first a few truths.

Freedom is given unto us by God. God endowed us with unalienable individual rights that precede any form or type of government. And, God gave us government, instituted by men, to protect and uphold those rights. This is not debatable but evident in God’s word.

The founding fathers of the united States of America recognized these self-evident truths in the Declaration of Independence. The God-given unalienable individual rights were enshrined in the Constitution for the united States of America as the “shall nots” for government in the first ten amendments known as the Bill of Rights. Unfortunately, many professing to be “free” conveniently forget the Ninth and Tenth Amendments and push to have some of these God-given unalienable individual rights “codified” by “government”, which has no authority whatsoever in regulating or managing that which was given by God to men. Yet, some people, and writers of “news items”, promote codifying of rights by certain levels of government.

Sen. Mastriano claimed, “I introduced this bill to shield people from retribution over the medical decisions they alone have the right to make and I won’t stop fighting for that right until its guaranteed by law. The CDC’s about-face comes too little, too late for millions of Americans who were shunned for refusing the vaccine, … Protecting the right of all Pennsylvanians to make medically-informed decisions for themselves must happen now to prevent further erosion of our freedoms.”

Writer of the piece, SD Wells echoed Mastriano’s claims when he wrote, “Senate Bill 471, the Medical Freedom Act, should be a nationwide act and should apply forever, like the constitution itself, starting right now. This bill prevents state governments from imposing forced vaccination on adults or their children, plus it bans employer-mandated vaccinations.”

Wells, as well as Mastriano, missed the fact that the Ninth Amendment already prohibits government from infringing upon bodily integrity rights retained by the people.

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people. – The Ninth Amendment.

Moreover, if the people did not give authority to regulate or manage God-given individual unalienable rights to the individual States in which they reside, the States have zero authority to do so.

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people – The Tenth Amendment.

Why would anyone promote the “government” dipping its toes into that which it has no business? It’s called deception since the midterms are upon us and the ramp up has begun for the 2024 election cycle. Mastriano happens to have an “R” on his jersey; however, that doesn’t mean he stands for freedom. One look at his “bill” , Pennsylvania SR 471, confirms it.

Being referred to as the “Medical Freedom Act”, Mastriano claims this bill is “prohibiting the mandatory COVID-19 vaccination of Pennsylvania residents by the Commonwealth, political subdivisions or as a condition of employment.” Remember, The Constitution for the united States of America, as well as the constitutions for each individual State, are limits upon the government established by the people.

When reading Section 3 of SR 471, it states, “Every resident in this Commonwealth has the inalienable right to bodily integrity and should be free from any threat or compulsion that the individual must receive a COVID-19 vaccination.” The language has to be carefully examined.

Every individual possesses the right to bodily integrity, given to that individual by God, when it comes to ANY medical treatment, test, or intervention – not just “vaccinations”. This is established by The Ninth Amendment to the Constitution for the united States of America. But, this bill is codifying bodily integrity ONLY where the COVID-19 injection is concerned. However, the very next phrase states, “should be free from any threat or compulsion that the individual must receive a COVID-19 vaccination.” The optimal verb to use is “shall”. The use of “should” indicates there is an exception that could be applied by government where that particular medical treatment is concerned.

The people did not give any level of government authority over healthcare or healthcare decisions regarding individuals. That authority was usurped and is unconstitutional.

Subsection 2 of Section 3 states, “An individual who exercises the right not to be vaccinated RECEIVE A COVID-19 VACCINE must not be denied any right or privilege of citizenship.” Again, one has to examine the language. The appropriate verb again is “shall” not “must”.

As is predictable, Subsection 3 of Section 3 indicates, “Currently this Commonwealth allows for medical and religious exemptions for immunizations and these rights should be given to all Pennsylvania residents who do not want to receive an immunization A COVID-19 VACCINE.”

So, a resident of Pennsylvania, possessing the God-given right to bodily integrity, recognized, guaranteed and protected by the Ninth Amendment to the Constitution for the united States of America, has to ask permission from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for a medical or religious exemption to exercise their God-given right to determine their own healthcare and make their own healthcare decisions when it comes to “immunizations.” How is this bill again upholding medical freedom when it establishes the “state” as the authority over healthcare concerning immunizations and “allows” residents to ask permission to be exempt? It doesn’t. And, the verb “should” is used when referencing the CONvid-19 injection.

Do you see where this is leading for the residents of Pennsylvania? And, SD Wells, the writer of the referenced article, supports “national” codification of this. The Pennsylvania bill is a disaster, but it turns into a catastrophe beginning with Section 4.

Section 4. Prohibition.

The following apply:

(1) The Commonwealth or a political subdivision of the Commonwealth, or an agent thereof, may not mandate an individual in this Commonwealth to receive a COVID-19 vaccination.

(2) A State agency or political subdivision may not enact or issue a rule, ordinance, order or any similar policy that would result in an individual being required to submit to a COVID-19 vaccination.

(3) A State agency or political subdivision, or an agent thereof, may not take an action which would result in an individual being required to submit to a COVID-19 vaccination, including as a condition of employment, access to education, the ability to travel, entry to a public place or contracting with a State agency or political subdivision.

(4) A COVID-19 vaccination offered by the Commonwealth as part of a mass vaccination effort may only be provided to individuals who consent to receiving the vaccination, without coercion, after receiving full information of all known ingredients, risks and benefits prior to the COVID-19 vaccination.

(5) Employers are prohibited from taking any adverse employment action against an individual who declines to receive a COVID-19 vaccination, including, but not limited to, termination, suspension, involuntary reassignment, unpaid leave, demotion, harassment or coercion. If an employer violates the provisions of this paragraph, an aggrieved employee shall have the right to apply for and receive unemployment benefits.

(6) An individual may not be discriminated against, denied entrance, service, the ability to purchase goods or receive medical care or to participate for refusal to accept a COVID-19 vaccination.

(7) A citizen may not be forced or coerced to sign a COVID-19 vaccination declination waiver that is condemning, self-incriminating or does not properly express the citizen’s beliefs.

Looking at the use of verbs, “may” indicates there is some wiggle room for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to ignore the rights of the individual recognized, guaranteed, and protected by the Ninth Amendment at its discretion.

Subsection 5 of Section 4 has to be read carefully. It states that employers are “prohibited” from taking any adverse employment action and defines what some, but not all, actions are included. It doesn’t say the employer “shall not” take any action since it provides for the employee to receive unemployment benefits for an employer violating that provision. Interesting, there is no consequence for the employer except to pay unemployment benefits. And, it lists applying for and receiving unemployment benefits as a “right”. But, rights do not come from the “state” – rights comes from God. Anything coming from the “state” is a privilege that can be revoked at the state’s discretion. The employee does have the option to file litigation against the employer for violation of the right to their own bodily integrity, right to make their own medical decisions, and the usurpation of other rights by the employer. However, this “bill” did not mention any of those.

Notice, as well, there is no stated consequence against entities denying individuals entrances, services, ability to purchase goods or receive medical care, etc. for exercising their God-given unalienable rights.

It is important to remember the “state” has zero authority over private employers, only those entities falling under it, such as “state agencies” allowed under its constitution.

Does this “bill” cover local government entities? Does “political subdivision of the Commonwealth” mean local government entities? How that term is defined falls under the purview of “the Commonwealth”. Connected to that is the verb “may” which gives plenty of latitude for defined entities to maneuver into a mandate.

Friends, please see this for what it is – an attempt to garner support for the “R” team in the upcoming elections as some sort of “defenders” of freedom when the “R” jerseys are just as evil as the “D” jerseys because both are unconstitutional and have implemented unconstitutional voting procedures in all the sovereign States. This bill in the Senate of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania needs to be defeated and it certainly does not need to be codified at the DC level of government.
