Dr. Stephen Skoly’s request for a medical exemption to the state’s vaccine mandate was denied. Then the Rhode Island Department of Health ordered him to stop his critical surgical care in October. 

Now, represented by the Washington, D.C.- based civil rights group the New Civil Liberties Alliance, he is suing Rhode Island to stop the state from prohibiting him from practicing medicine.  

Skoly shares with “The Daily Signal Podcast” why he asked for a medical exemption to the vaccine mandate, what he hopes to gain through his lawsuit, his views on the vaccines as a medical professional, and more. “I would think that in most instances a vaccination like this that was authorized under emergency use authorization, you should have some freedom of choice and some freedoms that exist still in America,” he says.
