A Cleveland hospital has condemned a child who needs a kidney transplant to death because the boy’s father has refused to get the coronavirus vaccine.

You read that right. The Cleveland Clinic won’t give a child a kidney transplant because the boy’s father has refused the jab.

This is the lunacy COVIDiots have veered into, folks.

Tanner Donaldson, a 9-year-old boy who was born with a birth defect that left his kidney irreparably damaged, is suffering stage 4 kidney failure. But the Cleveland Clinic does not care.

Per PJ Media:

Dane Donaldson, Tanner’s father, told PJ Media that his son’s kidney function is currently between 15-20%, but his numbers have been ticking up lately, so they feel he is nearing the time when a transplant will be necessary. They’ve known since birth that Tanner would eventually need the transplant and doctors have told the parents that they’ll continue monitoring Tanner’s health and, when the time comes, “they’ll be preemptive.” Donaldson told PJ Media that they won’t let his condition proceed to the point where he needs dialysis.

Donaldson is a perfect match, but the Cleveland Clinic is refusing to do the transplant because Dane has not received the COVID-19 vaccination. The hospital requires that all living donors be fully vaccinated before they go under the knife for a transplant.

In November, the family was blindsided by a letter from the Cleveland Clinic informing them that Dane would not qualify to be the kidney donor unless he agrees to take the COVID-19 vaccination.

The hospital says that because the father is not vaccinated, he is now not a “viable” donor.

“They did not remove Tanner from the transplant list,” Donaldson said, “but they removed his best possible outcome: myself, the living donor, his dad.”

Dane Donaldson explained that he had COVID last year, so he has natural immunity. But the hospital still refused him.

This is the dangerous lunacy of the left.
