MADANG - Last week, Madang governor Peter Yama announced he would file a Supreme Court reference challenging the decision of the Marape-Basil government to provide vaccines to Papua New Guineans who wished to receive them.
Yama said that, after studying a recent US Supreme Court ruling overturning universal vaccination, he had instructed his lawyers to file the reference to stop the vaccine for being provided to ‘his’ people in Madang.
He goes to state that ‘his’ people will not be used as ‘Gate’s guinea pigs’.
Gates being a reference to Microsoft founder Bill Gates who has spent billions of his personal wealth to save lives, reduce poverty and help vaccine children around the world against threats of epidemics.
So what US Supreme Court ruling was Yama referring to?
Yama shared an article, A Big Victory for Freedom in the United States, which had been circulating on WhatsApp.
The article claimed that “US infectious disease specialist Bill Gates, Dr Fauci and Big Pharma lost a Supreme Court case failing to prove all their vaccinations over the past 32 years were safe for the health of citizens.”
Was there such a US Supreme Court ruling?
The short answer is ‘no’, the article was fake news.
What I found laughable was Yama’s claim that after he studied the ruling he instructed his lawyer to file a Supreme Court reference in PNG.
So how does one study a ruling that doesn’t exist?
The only US Supreme Court ruling concerning universal vaccination was in 1905, where the court upheld the authority of states to enforce compulsory vaccination laws.
The rollout of Covid-19 vaccines in the US and in PNG is not universal. Vaccines are only for those who want them.
It appears the only people who would benefit from Yama’s nonsensical proceedings are his lawyer who is being paid from public funds and Yama himself, hoping to profit from the idiotic publicity.
