The View co-host, Joy Behar, wants to vaccinate America’s children without their parents’ consent. Dave Urbanski reports in The Blaze:
Joy Behar, co-host of “The View,” said teenagers should be permitted to get COVID-19 vaccinations, even if their “ignorant parents” don’t give consent.
What are the details?
A segment on Tuesday’s program briefly focused on pediatrician Dr. Michelle Fiscus, who was fired Monday as medical director for vaccine-preventable diseases and immunization programs at the Tennessee Department of Health after facing scrutiny over her push to get teens vaccinated, NBC News reported.
Particularly at issue was the fact that Fiscus called attention to Tennessee’s “Mature Minor Doctrine,” a state Supreme Court case ruling that says residents 14 to 18 years old may be treated “without parental consent unless the physician believes that the minor is not sufficiently mature to make his or her own health care decisions,” the network noted.
With that, co-host Whoopi Goldberg asked Behar if teens should be able to “take matters into their own hands” and get COVID-19 vaccinations, whether their parents have consented to the shots or not.
Behar was all for it.
“We like to think we’re smarter than our kids, but a lot of times the kids are smarter than their parents,” she said, noting times when her offspring exhibited “more sense that I had at various times in my life.”
Somehow it’s not hard to imagine a child exhibiting more sense than Joy Behar.
