New York healthcare workers who object to rolling up their sleeves for COVID-19 shots are scoring a major victory. A federal judge in New York is siding with the 17 workers who sued the state, objecting on religious grounds, which means New York can't force them to get COVID vaccinations. Judge David Hurd has granted their request for an injunction, saying "the public interest lies with enforcing the guarantees enshrined in the Constitution and federal anti-discrimination law" and not the wider public health. They claim the vaccines come from fetal cells procured during abortions, an assertion federal health officials deny.
