She participated in a rally in Washington: “I believe that no one should ever be forced to inject anything into their body!”
Former star of Lost and now a full member of the MCU, Evangeline Lilly went to an anti-vax protest in Washington DC this weekend, for the “bodily sovereignty“, opposing the vaccination policy imposed by the government.
“I believe that no one should ever be forced to inject anything into their body, against their will, under threat of violent attack, arrest or detention without trial, job loss, homelessness, starvation, loss of education, alienation from loved ones, excommunication from society… under any threat“, she wrote in a long message posted on her Instagram page.
The 42-year-old actress, who is above all Hope van Dyne alias the Wasp, in the Marvel cinematic universe, is thus indignant against the vaccination obligations which affect many sectors in the USA, such as the Hollywood community: “It’s not sure. This is not healthy. It’s not love. I understand that the world is afraid, but I don’t believe that responding to fear with force will solve our problems. I’m a big believer in choice, like abortion. I was before COVID and I still am today.”
In March 2020 Evangeline Lilly had previously refused social distancing and quarantine, saying that “Some people value their life over freedom, some people value freedom over their life. We all make choices.” She had to apologize shortly after, in the face of the wave of deaths that plunged America into chaos: “My direct and special apologies to those most affected by this pandemic. I never intended to hurt you. When I wrote this post, I thought I was breathing calm into the hysteria”she said at the time.
We will recall thatEvangeline Lilly will be one of the stars of the next Marvel, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumaniaalready filmed and which will be released in 2023 in cinemas.
