fgfBooks.com — The Supreme Court will soon decide if it will consider a challenge by Missouri and nine other states to the Covid-19 “vaccine” mandate imposed on the health care sector. Ten states* have filed a petition of certiorari asking the High Court to take a second look at the legality of the mandate. The amicus brief, Missouri v. Biden, being filed on June 21, will encourage the Supreme Court to grant certiorari.
The Fitzgerald Griffin Foundation will be a petitioner in the amicus brief arguing that the federal government has no constitutional or natural law authority to force medical treatments on Americans. The law firm of William J. Olson, P.C. Attorney At Law is preparing the brief.
A key issue in this case is whether or not the imposition of a vaccine mandate is a proper function of the federal government.
The Fitzgerald Griffin Foundation will be a petitioner in an amicus brief arguing that our government has no authority to force medical treatments on Americans.
Some of the main points to be discussed in the brief are:
1. Whether the vaccine mandate is in violation of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) because it is arbitrary, capricious, and unlawful?
2. Whether the mandate is unconstitutional under the Spending Clause, the anti-commandeering doctrine, and the Tenth Amendment?
3. Whether the mandate violates the APA because it was issued without notice and comment?
4. Whether the mandate exceeds the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) statutory authority?
From 1965 until 2021, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services never required any vaccinations for health care staff. However a major shift occurred on September 9, 2021 when President Biden announced multiple vaccine mandates. CMS followed suit on November 5, 2021 imposing a vaccine mandate on nearly all healthcare workers at facilities that receive Medicare.

Since that time, thousands of health care workers in America have been negatively impacted by Medicare's mandatory vaccine mandate. Some have lost their jobs by not complying. Some have quit instead of complying. FGF seeks to educate the public on this issue. Do doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals have the right to make their own health care decisions? Is this mandate constitutional? Is it a proper function of government to impose such a mandate on its citizens?
The vaccine mandate imposed on our doctors and nurses is one of the most important liberty issues of our day.
