Several healthcare workers have filed a federal lawsuit against New York’s COVID-19 vaccine for healthcare workers, citing Governor Kathy Hochul’s recent remarks at a Brooklyn megachurch where she called for a push for more vaccinations.

According to Press Connects, the lawsuit was filed by two doctors, a nurse and a scientist, from Lourdes hospital in Albany federal court last Friday. The healthcare workers, who are all Catholic, have also garnered support from Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who is the founder and chairman of the anti-vaccine advocacy group, Children’s Health Defense.

All four employees sought a religious exemption from taking the COVID-19 vaccine because it utilizes fetal cell tissues in research and development. In response, they argued that taking the shot would be committing a “grave sin” against their Catholic faith.
