The View's Meghan McCain calls for 'compassion' for Georgia mom who blasted school for forcing child to wear mask
THE View's Meghan McCain has called for 'compassion' after a Georgia mom blasted a school for forcing her six-year-old girl to wear a face mask.
Courtney Ann Taylor demanded that Gwinnett County Board of Education members "take these masks off of my child" as "young children are not affected by this coronavirus".
Fox News reported that the mom 'went viral' after questioning board members about making kids social distance and don face masks in Georgia.
"It’s April 15, 2021, and it’s time. Take these masks off of my child," Taylor said.
Other parents clapped and showed support for her stance.
The angry mom also told board members that despite schools acting on official health advice, Georgians voted for the five school board members – not the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The View's Meghan McCain said that "a friend in her kid's school – an 11-year-old – [reportedly] committed suicide in this Covid pandemic", during the enforced "isolation".
Viewers were told "there are a lot of different ways to die from this virus".
They also heard that the mom's child is so upset, that she "thinks she’s the only baby in the entire world [who] hasn’t been able to have a play date.
"We have to have compassion and grace for moms like her."
After the Georgia mom slammed the school board over masking, the co-hosts also discussed vaccine hesitancy as the CDC meets to look into discuss unlocking the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and relaxing some of its pandemic guidelines.
Taylor had said: “This is not March 2020 anymore.
“We have three vaccines, every adult in the state of Georgia that wants that vaccine is eligible to get it, right now, and every one of us knows that young children are not affected by this virus.
“They’re not, and that’s a blessing.
"But as the adults what have we done with that blessing?
"We’ve shoved it to the side and we’ve said we don’t care, ‘You’re still gonna wear a mask on your face every day, five and six-year-olds, you still can’t play together on the playground like normal children, seven and eight-year-olds.
“We don’t care. We are still going to force you to carry a burden that was never yours to carry. Shame on us!"
Her upset daughter had begged her to take on the board on her behalf, she added.
Taylor emotionally explained: “She says, ‘Are you going to tell them tonight? Tell them I don’t want to wear this anymore. And I say ‘Baby, it’s not time to fight that battle yet.'
“It is April 15, 2021, and it’s time. Take these masks off of my child.”
