Jonathan Hoenig, an Ayn Rand-obsessed hedge fund manager with no knowledge or expertise on any subject other than that is a frequent guest on Fox News. In his latest appearance, he made this incredibly stupid argument that forced vaccinations will lead to forced abortions and forced sterilizations.
Fox News guest Jonathan Hoenig said on Saturday that those advocating mandatory vaccinations for the “so-called public good” could be ushering in “forced abortions” and “forced pills.”
After host Eric Bolling noted a bill in California proposing mandatory vaccinations regardless of religious belief, Hoenig breathlessly condemned forced immunization by government.
“Think about where this could lead if government gets involved in science and medicine — forced sterilizations, forced abortion, forced pills, forced treatments,” he exclaimed.
Yeah, because the government is totally not involved in science and medicine now. Someone should tell the FDA and the Centers for Disease Control about this. 48 states currently have mandatory vaccinations, at a time when states have passed dozens and dozens of anti-abortion bills. This isn’t a slippery slope, it’s just a dumbass spouting bullshit.
