This reads like the sort of propaganda used in Orwell's 1984, by the ministry of truth. Since when has big pharma had a choke-hold on vaccinations? They have a choke-hold on drug patents and prices, not on whether or not to be vaccinated. Now, if Trump were to allow cheaper generics into the US......
Vaccinations aren't mandatory across the US. They're only mandatory in schools and institutions, so you can't join them unless you're vaccinated.
People just want to be free of the consequences of their own choices, which is ridiculous. It's like fighting against the fact that you're not allowed into staff-only areas if you're not part of the staff.
This article reads like a right wing propaganda site. It also cites the BolenReport website which is run by a very well known Anti-Vaxxer and promoter of quackery.
If you look at the source article and this one, they actually use direct lines from the BolenReport article but have altered the language.
"The Conscience and Religious Freedom Division gives many different groups a big tent under which to fight for our constitutional rights. Christians and libertarians, as well as freethinkers and people of other religious faiths, have a common interest in fighting against Big Pharma’s corrupt health establishment."
"It gives many different groups a BIG TENT under which to fight. I think it is time that Christians and Libertarians, and people of other religious faiths realize that we have a COMMON INTEREST in fighting against a FASCIST HEALTH ESTABLISHMENT." <emphasis theirs>
If you read the actual announcement from HHS about this new division ([hhs.gov], you will see it has been created to enforce existing federal laws. There is nothing HHS or this new division can do to override state laws mandating vaccination prior to attending public school.
Another thing that should be noted about all of this is that it is old. These articles and the creation of that group within HHS took place over a year ago.
