USA Today reports:
Indiana University students are pushing back against the school’s fall COVID-19 vaccine requirement. In a lawsuit filed Monday, the students argue the requirement violates the Fourteenth Amendment, which reads that no state shall “deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.”
The eight student plantiffs are suing the school’s board of trustees. The suit also argues the right to reject medical treatment and violation of state law against COVID-19 vaccine passports. Although Indiana recently banned government-issued COVID-19 vaccine passports, the ban does not apply to universities and colleges.
Read the full article. Their lawyer is on CNN at this writing arguing that students have the right to “make medical decisions for themselves” to have control over their “bodily integrity.” Ahem. He’s James Bopp of Focus On The Family and the National Right To Life Coalition. You might recall the time he blocked the RNC from mentioning the Pulse Massacre in their 2016 platform statement.
