A 12-year-old girl in Canada was allowed by an Ontario Superior Court Judge to refuse a Covid-19 jab.
The case before Peterborough Superior Court Justice J. Christopher Corkery involved a young girl who said she did not want receive the experimental vaccine being forced on her by her estranged father, who told her it was essential “to protect her and to protect her classmates, her friends, her neighbors, and family.”
Judge Corkery ended up siding with the girl after agreeing that the recent vaccine rollout debacle proved complete faith should not be placed in governmental institutions.
“Government experts sound so sure of themselves in recommending the current vaccines. But they were equally sure when they told us to line up for AstraZeneca. Now they don’t even mention that word,” Judge Corkery wrote in his ruling.
“I am not prepared to take judicial notice of any government information with respect to COVID-19 or the COVID-19 vaccines.”
“The science relating to COVID-19 is developing,” he added according to Western Standard. “The ‘facts’ are changing.”
The judge was referring to the Canadian government’s suspension last year of AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 jab for people under the age of 55 following numerous reports of blood clots in immunized patients.
More on the judge’s opinion from Lake Superior News:
“What are the health implications if children receive the current vaccine but skip some or all of the boosters?” the judge wondered. “What future COVID variant will boosters guard against?”
These questions, Corkery said, “are all questions requiring answers which are currently unavailable. “It is improper for the Court to pre-determine future medical treatments at unknown times, in unknown circumstances.”
Continuing in his explanation, the Ontario Superior Court justice raised more questions. “Does safe mean there are no side effects? Is the vaccine effective in protecting her from contracting COVID-19, from spreading it, from dying from it, from severity of symptoms?”
Justice Corkery outlined how “As with informed consent there are many factors that must be carefully considered in weighing risks and benefits.”
The Toronto Sun reports the girl’s mother didn’t want to force her daughter to take the vaccine, but that her father was insistent on the injection.
