Liberty Counsel sent a demand letter to Emory Healthcare, Inc. on behalf of a 41-year-old Georgia woman who desperately needs a kidney transplant to stay alive, yet has been refused a religious or medical accommodation because she will not take the COVID-19 shot. Liberty Counsel requests action on this woman’s case and a written response from Emory Healthcare no later than April 30, 2023 to avoid further legal action.
She is a mother who homeschools her seven young children. She suddenly developed end stage kidney disease and has been on dialysis three days a week. She was referred to the Emory transplant center in Georgia by her nephrologist. After her consultation with a nurse practitioner from Emory, this woman was deemed “an acceptable candidate” for transplant and could proceed without having the COVID shot. However, after another consultation with additional hospital personnel, the evaluation process was stopped when a social worker told her they could not continue if she did not plan on receiving the COVID shot.
Now Emory Healthcare has refused to put her on the active waiting list to receive a kidney because her sincerely held religious beliefs prevent her from taking the COVID shots, all of which are associated with aborted fetal cells.
In addition, due to her prior bout with COVID, her recent antibody test shows her immunity is higher than most people who have received a two-dose series of Pfizer and much higher than most vaccinated individuals who are more than 90 days post vaccination.
There is no FDA approved COVID shot available. All COVID shots are under Emergency Use Authorization (EUA), which means people have the right to refuse them. Therefore, Emory Healthcare may not condition participation in its transplantation programs on the taking a COVID vaccine.
The results of severe adverse events from the COVID shots continue to be revealed. In fact, Dr. Ryan Cole, a Mayo-trained board-certified pathologist and owner of the largest independent diagnostics laboratory in Idaho, is finding an alarming number of large blood clots that have appeared since the COVID shot rollout and seem to be present only in those people who have received the injection. The blood clots are not what one would normally think of a clot. Rather than a small clot the size of a BB or larger, these clots are long, worm-like, and some stretch for several inches or even up to several feet long. Cole Diagnostics processes and reports out approximately 40,000 blood and biopsy patient samples annually. Dr. Cole’s lab is able to determine the difference between a spike protein caused by the virus and a spike protein caused by the COVID shots, which are demonstrably different and much more pronounced and serious.
As a result, many people who have received the COVID shots are now experiencing myocarditis and other heart issues.
Liberty Counsel Founder and Chairman Mat Staver said, “Emory Healthcare is violating the oath of all medical professionals to ‘first do no harm.’ It is also unconscionable to deny anyone a religious or medical accommodation from an experimental injection, especially for someone who needs an organ transplant. Emory should be ashamed of its actions and reverse this unreasonable policy. These shots are neither safe nor effective and are all associated with aborted fetal cells. Emory needs to do the right action immediately and allow this woman to receive the kidney she needs to save her life.”
