Catholic Health Ministry Head Decries Federal Vaccine Mandate| National Catholic Register

President Joe Biden’s federal COVID-19 vaccine mandate for many private employers drew criticism from the head of a Catholic health care ministry. “Coercing individuals into making a medical intervention is unjust,” said Louis Brown, executive director of the Christ Medicus Foundation and former acting deputy director of the Civil Rights Division of the HHS Office for Civil Rights, in an interview with CNA on Thursday. “And a vaccine mandate that could cause millions of Americans to lose their jobs, to be excluded from large swathes of civil society — to become, effectively, second-class citizens — seriously undermines the principle of human dignity and the civil rights foundations of America,” he said. President Biden on Thursday said his administration would require employers with 100 or more employees to mandate COVID-19 vaccinations, or ensure negative COVID-19 tests weekly. The emergency rule is being developed by the Labor Department, Biden said Thursday afternoon.
