Woman Denied Life Saving Procedure Due to Vax Status

'No one has a right to receive transplants and no one is forced to undergo transplantation surgery....'

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) A court in Edmonton, Canada ruled that a woman be denied a lifesaving transplant because of her unvaccinated status.

According to The Washington Journal, Annette Lewis was diagnosed with “a chronic, progressive disease with no cure” in 2018, and was removed from an Edmonton-based transplant wait list for not being immunized.

Lewis took the hospital to court, arguing that her rights had been violated.

Justice Paul Belzil determined that her rights had not been violated under the Canadian constitution.

“I do not accept however, that her beliefs and desire to protect her bodily integrity entitle her to impact the rights of other patients or the integrity of the [transplant program] generally,” Belzil said.

“No one has a right to receive [organ] transplants and no one is forced to undergo transplantation surgery.”

Doctors told Lewis that this transplant was “her only hope of survival.”

Washington Journal reported that hospitals scattered throughout the United States have adopted similar policies.

For instance, 31-year-old D.J. Ferguson was denied a heart transplant by a Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston because he was not “vaccinated against the coronavirus.”

Despite pressure from politicians and other concerned parties, Colorado’s UCHealth has stood firm on its decision to deny organ transplants to patients who are unvaccinated for COVID.

Twitter users had a lot to say concerning the Canadian court’s decision, with some even revoking their organ donor status.
