Texans need to rapidly become reacquainted with the important, wonderful, powerful word in the Declaration of Independence - UNALIENABLE.
You know the thing, right?
"endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights"
Governments are instituted after all "to secure these rights." Not violate them, or force or allow employers, or schools, or transportation companies to violate them.
So, what does "unalienable: mean?
If you want to know what the framers meant by the words they used, there is no better place than Noah Webster's 1828 dictionary. That is why he wrote it, after all. (See )
Unalienable, according to Mr. Webster means "not alienable." Duh.
But then we see the meat of the matter, "may not be transferred; as unalienable rights."
If you go a bit deeper, you find the definition of "alienate": "To transfer title, property or right to another; as to alienate . . . sovereignty."
So the question, fellow Texans, is: is the natural right to bodily autonomy (including the right to decline vaccinations) unalienable? Can this right be bargained away in exchange for employment, or travel, or education, or governmental service?
I don't think so. What say you?
