General Hospital actor Ingo Rademacher  is suing ABC for its vaccine mandates. The actor played Jasper “Jax” Jacks on the soap for nearly 25 years, was fired last month after refusing to get vaccinated. 

ABC and Disney have some of the strictest vaccine mandates in place. Ingo Rademacher has called the vaccine mandate put in place for actors unconstitutional. His suit also claims that the vaccine mandate violated his right to privacy and is religiously discriminatory.

Rademacher revealed that he filed docs Monday in L.A for religious and medical exemptions, but that ABC had denied them. Clearly unhappy with how the last year and a half has been going, Rademacher calls the COVID lockdowns and rules the “most draconian restrictions in modern history”.

“I am entitled to a religious exemption against mandatory vaccination for COVID-19 on the basis of my deeply and sincerely held moral belief that my body is endowed by my creator with natural processes to protect me and that its natural integrity cannot ethically be violated by the administration of artificially created copies of genetic material, foreign to nature and experimental,” Rademacher wrote in an Oct. 11 email to Disney’s HR department.

Steve Burton, another “General Hospital” star, confirmed on Nov. 23 that he, too, had been fired from the show for refusing to comply with the vaccine mandate. Burton revealed on Instagram that he had applied for religious and medical exemptions, but that ABC had denied them.

Rademacher also says ABC’s actions are “blatantly unlawful” and believes most large corporations have only forced vaccines on employees to please the Biden Administration.
