PRESS RELEASE: Bongiovanni TRO
This week, Defending the Republic responded to the Biden Administration’s latest attempt to deny military service members their constitutional and statutory rights to refuse the experimental COVID-19 injections.
The case – Bongiovanni v. Austin – involves the violation of our clients’ rights to refuse experimental and unproven injections under the First Amendment and Religious Freedom Restoration Act. The latest motion filed by Defending the Republic argues in support of an injunction to prevent the government from discharging or disciplining these brave military service members, pending the results of litigation. The relief requested by Defending the Republic is consistent with court decisions across the country, which recognize the ongoing harm to service members’ religious liberties and the systemic discrimination faced by those who have religious objections to these injections.
Unfortunately, the government opposes such reasonable steps to protect the rights of our military’s heroes. The Biden Administration would rather see these patriots – who have sacrificed so much for their country – removed from the military for living consistent with their principles.
Our veterans deserve better, and Defending the Republic will continue to fight for them every step of the way.
