Colorado Politics: The public will not know the identities of the University of Colorado medical staff and students who are challenging the institution’s vaccination policy, after a federal judge acknowledged a hostile climate exists toward people who choose not to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
Eleven women and seven men have filed a lawsuit alleging the unconstitutionality of the religious exemption that CU’s Anschutz Medical Campus has enacted to its vaccine mandate. The anonymous plaintiffs have faith-based objections to the use of fetal cell lines used in the research and development of COVID-19 vaccines. However, the university allegedly denied each request for an exemption.
The plaintiffs then made an uncommon request to remain unidentified in the litigation, alleging a “top-down, cultural, societal, and legal assault currently underway against those who forgo receiving COVID vaccination, especially in the health care industry.”
