A woke North Carolina hospital is taking heat for refusing to allow a teenage girl to have a kidney transplant because she had not taken the coronavirus vaccine.
The girl’s parents appeared on Fox & Friends on Saturday to discuss the fate of their 14-year-old daughter who is being refused life-saving surgery by Duke University Hospital in Durham, North Carolina.
“I said, ‘So basically you’re telling us if she does not get the vaccine, then she’s not getting a transplant,'” Chrissy Hicks said. “And [the medical employee] said, ‘Yes, that is the one thing that is holding us up.’”
Chrissy and Lee Hicks of North Carolina adopted their daughter Yulia from Ukraine nearly two years ago.
The girl suffers from a rare degenerative kidney condition known as Senior Loken Syndrome, which requires a transplant, according to reports.
Though she is not vaccinated against COVID, she has had the coronavirus — so the parents believe she’s protected by natural immunities.
Dad Lee Hicks said on Saturday morning, “We’ve been up front the entire time we’ve been seen at Duke, for the last two years, that we were not comfortable with the vaccine — with the COVID-19 vaccine. And so they knew all along that we were not comfortable with this.”
The parents added that being vaccinated was just a suggestion, not a requirement. But at the last second, the hospital performed a bait and switch and changed the rules midstream.
Now their child can’t get her surgery because of this politics-driven scamdemic.Commentary
