Unvaxed Alberta woman facing removal from transplant list appeals court ruling backing hospital

18 Aug

Appalling she was refused a transplant because unjabbed.

A terminally ill Alberta woman facing removal from an organ transplant list over her refusal to receive a COVID vaccination is appealing a judge’s decision siding with the hospital.

Annette Lewis, 57, lost a bid last month for an injunction against Alberta Health Services and six local doctors after health authorities said she could not proceed with the transplant unless she receives her COVID shots.

Lewis claimed the requirement violated her charter rights, while AHS said it has an obligation to donors, their families and other patients to make sure organs are used on patients with the highest chance of surviving.

The specific organ in question, the names of the doctors and the community in which they work are covered by a publication ban.

    “AHS said it has an obligation to donors, their families and other patients to make sure organs are used on patients with the highest chance of surviving.”

    I agree with this policy for a reason: the way The Science is going, that’s not the vaxxed.

      If only they followed the science, and NOT ‘The Science’.™

      Oh yeah AHS?

      Let’s see all your extensive data proving the jabbed have a higher chance of surviving an organ transplant.

    This is clearly discrimination. If I were that terminally ill patient, I might go on the warpath.

      I have older friends who look forward to the “you have three months left to live” declaration so they can go kill people who need killing. I think it’s bravado, but I’m not sure.
