he U.S. Senate is now deliberating on a package of bills to end the Covid response policies, which in many cases violated Americans’ constitutional rights.
The end to the Covid mandates would encompass seven different bills, which are summarized by Sen. Ted Cruz’s office below.
Among its many provisions, the No Vaccine Passports Act would stop the federal government from establishing COVID-19 passports or working with third parties to establish their own vaccine passports, such as airlines or other global entities. This bill imposes a five-year prohibition on any government vaccine mandate for vaccines first authorized by the FDA through an Emergency Use Authorization. This bill also extends civil rights protections under the Americans with Disabilities Act to ensure that employees have the right to seek an exemption from any employment-based COVID-19 vaccine mandate. As millions of Americans receive the COVID-19 vaccine, Texas and at least 11 other states have already passed legislation preventing statewide vaccine passport mandates.
The GIVE LIFE Act (Doss’s Bill) is named after a teenage Texan who was denied a kidney transplant because he had not been vaccinated against COVID-19. Even after the pandemic has subsided, patients across the county continue to deny access to life saving transplants due to the patient’s COVID-19 vaccine status. The GIVE LIFE Act would prohibit denying an individual from donating and organ or receiving an organ transplant because of their COVID-19 vaccination status, and from COVID-19 positive caseloads in the patient’s locality from being used as a factor in determining eligibility to donate or receive an organ transplant. The GIVE LIFE Act would also prevent Medicare and Medicaid providers from denying services to individuals based on their COVID-19 vaccination status.
Ending Discrimination in COVID-19 Treatments Act:
The Ending Discrimination in COVID-19 Treatments Act would mandate the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to require that providers do not engage in discriminatory practices such as considering someone’s race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, religion, disability, vaccination status, veteran status, political ideology, or speech when allocating COVID-19 treatments.
