A 24-year-old woman was arrested and charged on suspicion of falsified vaccination documents when she traveled to Illinois with a fake COVID-19 vaccination card. She did so to avoid the state’s strict mandatory 10-day quarantine, according to reports.
Apparently Chloe Mrozak, of Illinois, “also allegedly falsified information on her quarantine location.” Her card was flagged because it read Maderna, instead of Moderna.
First of all, the insanity behind the Orwellian law is obvious on its face. We started heading down this slippery slope at the beginning of the outbreak and it’s only become worse more than a year later. This is what I call a “COVID lawmaker power grab” intended to take away liberties from every day Americans.
It’s not that I don’t believe that the vaccine works but I don’t need to carry my measles, polio and flu vaccination card everywhere I go. Think about it? We are endowed with certain liberties and laws like this will always lead to arrests because in the end it’s up to each individual to do what’s right for them. The government should not force vaccines on everyone. That’s simply un-American.
In fact, new scientific studies suggest that the vaccine isn’t working as well as natural herd immunity against the highly transmissible COVID Delta.
Here’s a headline from a recent Yahoo Story: Even with the Delta variant, the ability of COVID-19 vaccines to prevent hospitalization hasn’t significantly dropped, CDC scientist says. Read it here.
I thought Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) has made the best arguments against these extreme draconian laws. In a recent and excellent column in The Hill, Paul argued with facts and science that these laws are infringing on American civil liberties.
The newest power grab comes in the form of an alleged “Vaccine Passport” which would determine your social suitability to engage in your everyday life. Want to go to the store? Show your vaccine card.Want to go to a restaurant or concert? Did you tell the government what vaccines you’ve had?Want to travel? VACCINE PAPERS PLEASE.I have been warning for a full year about the slippery slope that our freedoms were being pushed down. Even I wasn’t sure it would end with full on vaccine fascism. Let’s start with a few things the media will no doubt try to get wrong. I’m in favor of vaccines. I’m a Duke Medical School trained M.D. and I studied immunology before moving on to my career in eye surgery. Vaccines are a marvel of modern medicine, and the speed and effectiveness of the COVID vaccines have been great.I’m also in favor of people making their own medical and personal decisions.By early summer, everyone in America will have been eligible for a vaccine. Between those who took the vaccine or had COVID, there is little to no doubt we will have herd immunity by then, and danger from COVID will be low.Even the CDC now admits what I said months ago (and Dr. Fauci denied) — those who have been vaccinated are not getting sick and they are not passing along the disease to others. This makes the idea of a vaccine passport — which is a terrible idea for freedom — a simply poor idea overall, as it should have no impact on anyone.The Hill, Sen. Paul
Mrozak is the latest victim of these extreme measures. She was caught on Aug. 23, when the Safe Travels Program administrator reported a possible fraudulent COVID vaccination card after Mrozak uploaded and presented the card to the airport screener, the local news report states.
People who live in fear of the illness or those who are more apt to relying on the government to protect them may think this is ok. But remember it won’t end with COVID-19 vaccines. This law is based on fear, not on science. It is a slippery slope that will encroach on your own civil liberties one day whether it’s COVID-19 or some other issue. Once we allow the government to seize on our rights, we will only have ourselves to blame when we have none left.
“The screener failed to confirm Mrozak’s hotel reservation prior to her leaving the processing center. According to court documents, no reservation was found after contacting the hotel that she listed in her Safe Travels forms, and Mrozak did not provide her hotel reservation number and return flight information.”CBS local affiliate

College to begin offering abortion pill on campus
Barnard College, a partner campus of Columbia University, will be rolling out a plan in May that involves supplying students with abortion pills, the Columbia Spectator reported. The plan to provide the abortion service in the form of mifepristone abortion pills to students was initially announced in the fall of 2022 after the overturning of Roe. V Wade, according to the Spectator. However, the rollout’s delay has been partially attributed to an August 2023 grant the college received, which allowed Barnard to join a large network of primary care providers that will help steer the college through the procedures.
The Daily Caller News Foundation reports Barnard’s Primary Care Health Service will host student focus groups in upcoming weeks to find out student perspectives about the service and to identify new ways to support students considering abortion. “We wanted to make sure that we’re addressing this from every angle that will be supportive of students,” Sarah Ann Anderson-Burnett, director of Medical Services and Quality Improvement of Barnard, told the Spectator. Anderson-Burnett also said it has expanded the availability of its abortion providers to after-hours and year-round.
Barnard has six medical professionals, including two physicians and four nurse practitioners, who are capable of performing the procedure, Mariana Catallozzi, vice president for Health and Wellness and chief health officer of Barnard, told the Spectator. The school also launched a partnership with AccessNurse, a medical call center that will assist with patient concerns related to abortions.
“The training doesn’t end with the clinicians,” Anderson-Burnett told the Spectator. “Clinicians are trained on the actual provision, but there’s also an overall training that will be provided to key partners and stakeholders across the campus because we want every step, every touchpoint, to be supportive and to be trauma-informed and to be patient-valued and centered but also respect confidentiality and privacy.”
The University of Massachusetts Amherst spent more than $650,000 to stock abortion pills in March 2023 at the request of Democratic Maryland Gov. Maura Healey. Democratic New York Gov. Kathy Hochul signed a bill in May 2023 forcing college in the state to stock abortion pills on campus.
