Listen to this one minute clip in which Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz tells you in no uncertain terms that forced vaccination is legal and necessary. Beyond the obvious disgust of his statement, here's where I think he stumbles: he says that if a disease will only kill YOU, you can refuse the vaccine. But vaccines are only created for contagious diseases and disease rather by its very definition, can kill. ERGO (hey, check out that fancy Latin. I'm just a Boston College gal, but it's NEAR HAH-vud) you can't refuse any vaccine. What's the difference between a flu shot and a COVID-19 shot? Flu can kill if you spread it. COVID-19 can kill if you spread it. We've lost all sense of American liberty. Rip July 4 out of the calendar. It's gone.

Alan Dershowitz, Professor of Law, emeritus, at Harvard Law School, seems to have exceptions in his libertarian outlook on people’s constitutional rights when we’re talking about vaccinations.
When it comes to being vaccinated, there is no liberty. Overreaching powers go on forever. You have no right to refuse a vaccine.
Below are several examples of his opinion on the subject of forced vaccines.
Actually what Dershowitz is preaching here is totalitarian rule. We are to live in a society where vaccines are acknowledged to cause injury and even death, where doctors and pharmaceutical companies are indemnified and where the powerless masses have no choice but to comply and suffer the consequences for the common good. The only ones taking any risk here of course are the American people.
Dershowitz’s real view of individual vaccine rights boils down to SHUT UP AND GET IN LINE. Is that in the curriculum at Harvard?
**Notice Dershowitz never acknowledges any risk from being vaccinated. In his simplistic worldview vaccines don’t have harmful side effects, they only prevent disease. Therefore there’s no legitimate reason for anyone to refuse a vaccine.
June 14, 2019, New York Daily News: There is no religious right to refuse vaccination (OPINION)
New York just eliminated all religious exemptions for mandatory measles vaccination. It was the right thing to do. There is no constitutional basis for requiring a religious exemption. Nor, in my view, are there any plausible religious arguments against mandatory vaccinations to spread communicable and potential lethal diseases….
I read widely in religious literature, especially Jewish literature. I have never come across a coherent religious argument against mandatory vaccination for deadly contagious diseases. Jewish law has an overriding religious concept called “pikuach nefesh,” which elevates the protection of human life over virtually every other value….
…Religion is being used as a cover for a misguided political, ideological, conspiratorial and personal opposition to vaccination. …
In the Newsmax interview below back in March Dershowitz said that suspending our rights was legal as long as it was “temporary.
“As long as there’s a sunset provision, as long as it will end when the crisis ends.”
“We have to be careful about how we compromise our liberties in the name of public health. If there is a good public health justification and if it’s being done on a short term basis, as a civil liberation, I can support it.
“Hopefully we’ll get a vaccine soon, there’ll be some who will refuse to be vaccinated. They can be compelled to be vaccinated. I don’t believe religious or other objections to vaccinations if the vaccination is designed to prevent others from getting sick can be justified. I think you’re obliged as a citizen of the country to make certain sacrifices and those include being vaccinated. …
“If it’s a public health threat, then I think compromises with civil liberties, as long as they’re temporary, and as long as they’re not life-threatening, can be understood.”
Dershowitz needs to understand that VACCINE INJURY TABLES INCLUDE DEATH AS A SIDE EFFECT.
There is nothing temporary about what certain people want to do about our right to vaccine choice nor is there anything temporary about what vaccine injuries can do to people.
Just ask the parents who have spend decades caring for their children who’ve been permanently injured by their “recommended” vaccinations.

May 18, 2020, We Have NO RIGHT to NOT be Vaccinated
Constitutional Law Scholar and political lightning rod Alan Dershowitz discuss the troubling recent attacks on allegedly inalienable rights of World Citizens.
“Let me put it very clearly: You have no constitutional right to endanger the public and spread the disease even if you disagree. You have no right not be to be vaccinated. You have no right not to wear a mask. You have no right to open up your business---
“And if you refuse to be vaccinated the state has the power to literally take you to a doctor’s office and plunge a needle into your arm.”
“WHERE IS THAT IN THE CONSTITUTION?”
“IF the vaccine is designed to prevent the spread of disease.
“If the vaccination is designed only to prevent a disease that you will get…, you have the right to refuse that, but you have no right to refuse to be vaccinated against a contagious disease.
“Public health, the police power of the Constitution gives the state the power to compel that and there are cases in the United States Supreme Court.”
