Charlie Kirk says children are being treated like “lab rats” for the COVID-19 vaccine “Your children are going to be experimented on” Written by Media Matters Staff Published 10/27/21 2:59 PM EDT Video file Citation From the October 27, 2021, edition of The Charlie Kirk Show, streamed on YouTube CHARLIE KIRK (HOST): This is a guy who's voting to approve the vaccine to be used on your children. "We're never going to be able to learn about how safe the vaccine is until we start giving it. That's the way it goes." So this is the equivalent of Pelosi saying we have to pass the bill to find out what's in it. We have to vaccinate your children to find out if they're going to die. Now, excuse the graphic nature of this, but explain to me how this quote - "We're never going to be able to learn about how safe the vaccine is until we start giving it. That's the way it goes" - is different than treating your children like lab rats. I know that's a graphic thing. How is it any different? We're going to find out once we start giving it. So what? Your children are going to be test cases or beagles in cages. Your children are going to be experimented on. How is that any different? Kirk doesn't go into it, but the process for approving the vaccine was extremely robust.
