SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) – Lawsuits against Illinois for compulsory COVID-19 vaccination were piling up and the reason was clear: the leverage of legal claims of the healthcare conscience law act state by stating religious objections to shooting and appealing sanctions, including loss of employment, which is accompanied by denial.
Democrats who control the General Assembly got to work last month to change that, but have publicly avoided prosecution as the reason. They said their action had nothing to do with restricting religious freedom. Anyone fired from a job after rejecting the vaccination for religious reasons can take legal action under at least four different federal laws, they said.
