Joe Biden seems to think he has the authority over your body to mandate this Covid-19 vaccine. There is no greater form of oppression and authoritarianism than when government takes control over your body. This is absolute tyranny at its highest level. No government has authority over your body. Your body is yours and yours alone and no government can tell you to take a “medicine” or force a “treatment,” and they likewise have no right to prevent you from taking a “medicine” or “treatment” that you want to take.
As Governor of Idaho, I will make our state the very first Health Freedom and Body Autonomy State. This means that in Idaho you can legally take any treatment you want to take, and the state will permit it and protect you. You will have the right to try any treatment here in Idaho. And you will be autonomous over your body like God intended.
So let me be very clear—Idaho will never mandate vaccines nor any other medical treatment for any citizen at any time when I am Governor. When it comes to vaccines, if you want to take one, you are free to do so. If you don’t want to take one, you will never be required to. Idaho will honor and protect your right to decide what to do with your body.
