Obese New York University bioethics professor Arthur Caplan took to CNN on Wednesday to call for the unvaccinated to be penalized, forced to pay higher hospital bills and denied various forms of insurance for being "financial burdens" on the system.

From Breitbart, "Medical Ethics Prof on CNN: 'Penalize' Unvaccinated AmericansóDeny Them Affordable Health Insurance":
ďBy and large, if youíre vaccinated and boosted, even if you get infected, youíre going to be fine. Youíre going to be fine here. Itís the unvaccinated who are going to be hurt so why should anyone who is boosted bother at this point to do anything that makes the unvaccinated more safe?Ē CNNís John Berman asked.

ďI want us to act as a community. I want us to act as a team. Weíre fighting a war and need all hands on deck. I donít want to reject those who still havenít done the right thing. Iíll condemn them. Iíll shame them. Iíll blame them, but I donít want to exclude them,Ē Caplan replied, before detailing his desire to ďpenalizeĒ unvaccinated Americans and implement more coercive tactics to corner them into getting the shot.

Caplan continued (emphasis added):

Theyíve got to come around. Were not going to win this war ó weíre going to be talking about COVID this time next year if we donít get more people to do the right thing. So we canít write them off. We can penalize them more. We can say you will have to pay more on your hospital bill. You canít get life insurance or disability insurance at affordable rates if you arenít vaccinated. Those companies should not treat us as equals in terms of what the financial burdens are that that disease imposes.

Berman responded by scolding unvaccinated individuals, contending, ďItís the unvaccinated who arenít wearing masks. Itís the unvaccinated who arenít social distancing. Itís the unvaccinated going to crowded indoor events.

ďSo thereís this bizarre irony where the ones who are behaving are the ones being told to behave 10 times more so,Ē he added.
How about instead we penalize obese slobs like yourself?

Your obesity is costing our health care system far more than any unvaccinated people and the costs will just keep rising long after this virus is wiped out!

Is it not unethical to force everyone else to pay for your fat ass simply because you refuse to stop shoving your big, fat, chubby face with endless doughnuts?

We're asking you as a community -- please stop sucking down Chinese takeout by the gallon!

You're one man, please stop consuming enough food every day to feed fifty starving Africans!

We're not going to win this war if you're not willing to make sacrifices!
