Professor Alan Dershowitz was on Tucker Carlson Tonight on May 20th to discuss his controversial opinion on a mandatory COVID 19 vaccine.
Here Dershowitz qualified his views about the circumstances that would allow forced vaccination of the entire population. Notice how many times he talked about the need for the vaccine to be proven safe.
Tucker Carlson: …In some rare cases, sometimes not that rare, [vaccines] can hurt people.
Does the government still have a right to endanger you be forcing you to take it?
Professor Deshowitz made these comments in response:
The Supreme Court has said yes. It is not a debatable issue constitutionally….
Then Deshowitz explained his views of the “moral issue” involved in forced vaccination.
I think one can make a plausible argument that nobody should be required to be subjected to a dangerous vaccination to help other people. That’s a plausible argument.
I think we should continue to debate that….
…I wouldn’t require people to take a vaccine unless it was proved very, very safe…
I general, if the vaccine was proved extremely safe, then the state has a right to compel you to take it….
What you don’t have the right to do is to circulate in society without being vaccinated, if the vaccine is proved to be very safe.
Carlson: There is so much lying about vaccines…
Deshowitz: You have to have rule of reason. If the vaccine is very effective and very safe…
Professor Dershowitz went on to use his 10 year old great-grandson as someone who might not need the vaccine as children are not generally affected.
Actually I highly doubt that the powerful forces pushing a fast-tracked COVID vaccine will let anyone opt out.
