President Biden has ordered all members of the military to take the coronavirus jab by the end of the year. But according to an attorney in Pennsylvania, many military personnel across all branches argue it is an "unjust and immoral order."
Among those opposing the presidential edict are members of the elite Navy SEALS. Their attorney R. Davis Younts, who was a guest Wednesday night on Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Show."
"My clients are Christian men. They're men of faith. Their faith informs every decision that they make," Younts stated. "And really what they need is more time."
The former JAG officer continued: "The way this is being rolled out to my clients and many other members in the military is arbitrary. They're being given these really tight deadlines [and] just don't have time to explore all of the options and the rights.
"The worse of it is they're being told you're going to go into a non-deployable status if you don't do this."
The attorney also emphasized that his clients aren't alone in pushing back on the military vax mandate.
"My clients want the American people to know there are thousands of military members across the formation who feel the same way," he said. "My clients as Christian men [are] informed by their faith – [they] love their neighbor, they dedicate their lives, they sacrifice their lives to protect innocent life. That's what they're about … This [story] isn't about them; they want help for the rest of the military."
In an interview with ABC-affiliate WHTM in Pennsylvania, Younts further explained that his clients are being told that if they ask for – and are granted – an exemption, "they won't be able to a Navy SEAL anymore."
