Louisiana parents opposed to COVID mRNA shots for their children won a victory as the state’s department of health rescinded its mandate that schoolchildren be injected.

The Louisiana Department of Health repealed its mandate Tuesday, leading Attorney General Jeff Landry (R) to file a motion to dismiss his lawsuit, Crews v. Edwards, against Governor John Bel Edwards (D).

Landry said in a statement:

Today is the culmination of hard work by so many concerned parents throughout Louisiana. This is the direct result of moms, dads, grandparents, and guardians fighting for what is right. I thank Representative Raymond Crews, Health Freedom Louisiana, the Bayou Mama Bears, Town Hall Baton Rouge, Children’s Health Defense, and all those from across Louisiana that stood with us for parental choice.

“Child medical decisions should be made by their guardians, not the government,” Landry said. “I hope this health freedom victory reminds everyone what can happen when we all work together. When citizens are engaged and get involved, their government will listen.”

Landry also scored another major victory over COVID mandates imposed by Joe Biden’s requirements for the federal Head Start Program.

Judge Terry Doughty of U.S. District Court in the Western District of Louisiana granted the state a permanent injunction against mask mandates for toddlers and COVID shots for staff and volunteers of Head Start programs.

“I thank my fellow attorneys general for joining me in this fight for our states’ families, single mothers, and elderly raising their grandchildren,” Landry said in a statement. “I will not waver in defending our toddlers and teachers from government overreach.”.. (Excerpt from The Virginia Star)
