This should qualify as attempted murder.
Patients sometimes wait months, or years, for a transplant.
In many cases, the need of a transplant is a matter of life & death.
But the University of Washington Medical Center has a new requirement to receive a transplant at their facility.
You must receive the experimental COVID-19 injection.
Want us to save your life by performing a transplant operation?
Then take this experimental drug that has potentially life-threatening side effects.
It’s disgusting and whoever made this policy should be behind bars.
Because this is attempted murder of hospital patients for denying critical medical care.
More discrimination and denial of medical care…https://t.co/AxQ2WDcfbr

Seattle’s KTTH had the scoop, courtesy of the Jason Rantz Show:
The University of Washington Medical Center denied organ transplants to patients who refuse a COVID vaccine as early as June 2021. And hospital officials refuse to answer basic questions about their policy.
In fact, they won’t even directly acknowledge they have a policy.
The Jason Rantz Show on KTTH has learned that UW Medicine removed a 64-year-old patient from the transplant waitlist. He says he was on the list for two and a half years. The hospital made the decision after they learned the patient refused to be vaccinated against COVID. They said they would consider adding him back to the waitlist should he satisfy their “compliance concerns.”
Last week, one vaccine-hesitant patient came forward. He says he was told the vaccine was mandatory before he could get a necessary liver transplant. The hospital does not deny any of the allegations.
In June, Sam Allen of Monroe learned that his heart transplant surgery was on the line over his refusal to get the COVID vaccine.
The list of medical conditions Allen says he’s facing is long: mitral valve regurgitation, tricuspid valve regurgitation, aortic valve regurgitation, aneurism of thoracic aorta, and dilated cardiomyopathy.
He says three leaky heart valves impact the blood pumping into his lungs. Allen says it makes it difficult to breathe, which played a role in why he wouldn’t wear a mask. He previously underwent open-heart surgery, and he says his heart was damaged in the process.
Also from KTTH:
Patients at UW Medicine are being told they must get a COVID vaccine before going through a life-saving organ transplant. One patient says he doesn’t want it, effectively forcing him to decide if he’ll forgo a liver transplant to address his vaccine concerns.
Derek Kovick is a 41-year-old father of two. He suffers from Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC), a rare and serious liver disease that damages the bile ducts. Kovick is waiting on his third liver transplant and is concerned with the side effects of the COVID vaccine.
But Kovick’s concerns don’t matter. He’s being forced to either get the vaccine or skip the liver transplant for now.
A fever can be serious for Kovick. If he gets a fever over 100.4, he says doctors tell him to go to an emergency room immediately. In fact, at a vacation just two weeks ago, a high fever from his PSC sent him to the ER.
He’s concerned a high fever will be a side effect of the COVID vaccine, and he doesn’t want to risk it. He’s not anti-vaccine and says he would get one after his procedure. But he does not want the shots before his transplant.
Kovick may not have a choice.
“I was notified earlier this week that now [UW’s] Infectious Disease has changed the rules in the middle of the game, stating that all transplant patients who are waiting for any organ will need to have a vaccine. They didn’t give us the date but said that you need to be doing it ASAP,” Kovick told the Jason Rantz Show on KTTH.
