CNN Medical ‘Expert’ Demands Extreme Punishments for Unvaccinated

CNN’s guest medical and ethics “expert” has called on the federal government to introduce extreme punishments for unvaccinated Americans.

Dr. Arthur Caplan, a bioethics professor and the head of the Division of Medical Ethics at NYU Grossman School of Medicine, is demanding that the tens of millions of Americans who have not yet received their COVID vaccines must face severe actions.

Caplan called for the unvaccinated to be shamed, blamed for the pandemic, and then punished severely for refusing to comply.

Just to reiterate: Dr. Caplan is responsible for overseeing medical ethics at NYU’s medical school.

Dr. Caplan made his feelings clear during an interview Wednesday morning with CNN’s sympathetic “New Day” host, John Berman.

“Look, those of us who have been vaccinated and boosted and everything else, why should we keep making sacrifices when we keep being told the vast majority of people hospitalized now with COVID are the unvaccinated?” CNN’s John Berman asked.

“So, look, first, we’ve got to get the ethical ground back on the side of people doing the right thing, that praise them, that acknowledge that they’re doing the right thing,” Caplan responded.

“When I hear people say our first value is autonomy, and liberty, and I don’t want to get vaxed, and I don’t want to do anything to help my neighbor, or help people who are weak or vulnerable, one of the important things we can do is shift the moral ground.

“We’ve got to start praising people who do the right thing.

“Not saying, well, there’s a tradeoff of values. Some people are going to help their neighbor[,] orient toward the community, try to protect one another.

“And then there are going to be jerks who aren’t going to do that.”

“Let’s get the equation straight.

“And people may be thinking, well, so what?

“What difference does it make where we put a moral emphasis? It makes a lot of difference,” Caplan continued.

“Shame, guilt, calling people out when they’re not doing the right thing.

“I don’t see moral equivalency if you’re not doing the right thing by getting vaccinated, by trying to get tested when you can find the tests, by trying to take precautions when you’re around the weak and the vulnerable.”

“We’re going to be talking about COVID this time next year if we don’t get more people to do the right thing,” he later added.

“So we can’t write them off.

“We can penalize them more.

“We can say, you’re going to pay more on your hospital bill if you weren’t vaccinated.

“You can’t get life insurance or disability insurance at affordable rates if you aren’t vaccinated.

“Those companies should not treat us as equals in terms of what the financial burdens are that that disease imposes.”
