Republicans hate vaccine passports. So now is it because of women’s right to privacy?

To the editor: When I read the article about Republican opposition to vaccine passports, My blood started to boil. Republicans describe it as “a tedious invasion of personal freedom and personal health choices.”

Imagine being a woman. Our uterus, as well as our “private health choice,” is managed in many states. And what do you guess? Unlike COVID-19, pregnancy is not an infectious disease.

I’m not sure if I support requesting the use of a vaccine passport, but there is no doubt that women support their right to privacy in their health care choices. My choice of using contraception, getting pregnant, or having an abortion is not contagious and should not be controlled by the Republican Party.

To the editor: You don’t have to mess up your vaccine passport. Everyone will be issued an official vaccination record card. Just take a picture with your mobile phone.

I took it to the next level and sent the shotcard image to a custom T-shirt company, so now I don’t even have to take out my phone. Sure, it cost me $ 25, but if wearing my shot record on my chest gives Congressman Marjorie Taylor Greene a steam case, it’s a penny. Worth

To the editor: At some point, herd immunity is reached, eliminating the need for a vaccination passport. So you can set a definite expiration date to use them, right?

I think there is no expiration date.

There are many medical procedures and tests that can be “encouraging” through your passport. All of them will improve our health, reduce costs, thus reduce insurance premiums, and give us other benefits that we are told to need them.

They can be added one by one, each with such a small, small imposition, and there is no foreseeable end.

To the editor: Republicans oppose vaccination passports, tighter banking regulations, and gun control because they want to reduce government involvement in our lives.

But they want to legislate who uses gender-specific bathrooms and plays gender-specific sports. They want to limit access to voting, contraception, and abortion.

Vaccine passports allow businesses to make decisions that contribute to revenue and enhance public safety. I’m confused, so maybe someone will provide me with a GOP rulebook.
