So they'll condemn you to a slow, lingering death for not being vaxxed?

 

I was outraged to read a tweet yesterday, providing a copy of a letter from a Colorado transplant unit to a patient.  Here's the letter (clickit to biggit).



In so many words, at this facility at least, unless you're vaccinated against COVID-19, you won't be eligible for an organ transplant - even if you've previously been through all the tests and procedures, and been approved for one as soon as a donor organ is available.  What's more, because you've chosen not to be vaccinated against a disease with a better-than-99% survival rate on average, you're being condemned to a slow, painful death that's guaranteed 100%.


This is morally and ethically unconscionable.


One person said to me, in so many words (I've edited out the abundant profanity), on reading that letter:

"I think anyone being rejected for a transplant because they won't accept a COVID-19 vaccination should take careful note of every single person involved in that decision, and the senior medical staff and administrators of the facility that rejected them - their names, addresses, photographs, the lot.  If and when they die of organ failure, they should ensure that their friends send every one of those people to join them in the afterlife as soon as possible.  It's only fair, after all:  'You condemned me to death, so I'm going to make sure you enjoy the same fate!'."

That's hardly a Christian perspective, but it's very difficult to disagree with his sentiments.

I will continue to try to live my life as a good Christian, until they won't let me or leave me alone. Then I will unleash my inner Gaear Grimsrud on them and their entire families.

I wonder how much wood chipper rentals are these days?

These people are oath breakers, and should be treated accordingly.

When you consider that HIV infection is NOT a contraindication for a person getting an organ transplant , you realize just how political medicine , or, at least the management of the medical system , can be .

Now Peter I seem to recall some verbiage in the Good Book regarding an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.
It does not seem all that unreasonable to expand that philosophy to a kidney for a kidney and a life for a life.
And I am aware that the original caution was intended to restrict unreasonable and disproportional retaliation for minor offenses committed against those in power.

Anyone who receives this type of letter should, at a minimum, be involved in the various class action lawsuits. It isn't the only solution but it needs to be a part of the solution. There are federal laws regarding transplants although I am not familiar with their details. I only know of them because I am aware of the prohibition on selling your organs to transplant programs.

If you haven't already, start developing your "personal accountability list"...

And what are the studies showing the effect of the COVID vaxx on people requiring kidney (or any other) transplant?

Hmmm, what's that form of government where everything is subverted to the decree's of the state...

If and when they die of organ failure, they should ensure that their friends send every one of those people to join them in the afterlife as soon as possible.

Except that... your "friends" wont have anything to do with it. After all, those people didnt do anything to Them. At best they'll shake thier heads and mutter something about "somebody should do something".

Friends. Uh-huh.

Nowhere in the Bible, Old Testament or New, does it say you have to treat the forces of Satan and those who embrace pure evil as if they were good people.

Evil is meant to be fought, morally or physically. Fought and beat back.

This is the point we are at now. Fighting evil all around us.

At an absolute minimum, people should be sending that hospital a letter saying that given this policy they will never be an organ donor.

That's going about it all wrong. Do unto the people who sent the letter, and leave them in the street - or at least their heads. Then ask the next guy down the line in the administrative chain if he'd like to reconsider his predecessor's decision. Rinse and repeat until a "You know what, I really, really would! And it's going to be on the house!" answer is achieved.

Just your daily reminder that 'democrat' is a synonym for 'grotesque subhuman monster.'

Aesop said...

Why would anyone wait, and hope their friends avenged them?

Anything worth doing is worth doing yourself.
Pour encourager les autres.

It would be a salutary lesson to 100 other transplant centers as well: "Decisions have consequences to you, as well as those you hold in your power. Choose wisely."

As far as I'm concerned, anyone who becomes judge, jury, and executioner to that entire transplant board is doing humanity a service, and deserves the thanks of all mankind. Those who would inject their politics into a life and death medical decision deserve to let other people's politics act accordingly, back on them.

It's the only way such tyrants ever learn.
A bullet to their faces is the ultimate exposition of that lesson.
Pray that it happens, and swiftly, lest the error grow.
