CRUEL: Unvaccinated Man Denied Heart Transplant by Boston Hospital

Unforgivable.

Published

Americans are facing a strange new pandemic of prejudice in 2022, as a number of organizations and establishments continue to discriminate against and segregate the unvaccinated from the vaccinated, and it’s beginning to get to the point where such separation could be deadly.

In restaurants and concert halls, as well as on many domestic flights, those who’ve chosen not to receive a COVID vaccination are being excluded and mistreated.  In some schools, this personal medical decision could even see you corralled around like cattle.

Now, in a stunning turn of events, choosing to remain unvaccinated could see you denied life-or-death medical help.

A Boston hospital is defending itself after a man’s family claimed he was denied a new heart for refusing to be vaccinated against COVID-19, saying most transplant programs around the country set similar requirements to improve patients’ chances of survival.

The family of D.J. Ferguson said in a crowdfunding appeal this week that officials at Brigham and Women’s Hospital told the 31-year-old father of two that he was ineligible for the procedure because he hasn’t been vaccinated against the coronavirus.

“We are literally in a corner right now. This is extremely time sensitive,” the family said in its fundraising appeal, which has raised tens of thousands of dollars. “This is not just a political issue. People need to have a choice!”

The patient had serious, well-researched concerns.

D.J.’s mother, Tracey Ferguson, insists that her son isn’t against vaccinations, noting he’s had other immunizations in the past. But the trained nurse said Wednesday that he’s been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation — an irregular and often rapid heart rhythm — and that he has concerns about the side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine.

“D.J. is an informed patient,” Tracey Ferguson said in a brief interview at her home in Mendon, about 30 miles (48 kilometers) southwest of Boston. “He wants to be assured by his doctors that his condition would not be worse or fatal with this COVID vaccine.”

Sadly, D.J.’s case is not the first such discriminatory incident, and it certainly won’t be the last unless a dramatic shift in thinking was to occur within the medical establishment.

US Air Force Reveals Successful Hypersonic Missile Test

This could put the US back in the driver’s seat as far as missile tech goes.

Much like the global arms races that came before, the superpowers of the world are now looking to add a terrifying new doomsday machine to their arsenals in 2022:  Hypersonic missiles.

The missiles, which could be loaded with nuclear or traditional munitions, fly several times faster than the speed of sound and are said to be unstoppable by current defense technologies.  (The US has played coy with this claim, however, suggesting that our nation is well-defended against them).

Russia and China already possess such weapons.  North Korea keeps insisting that they do too, but the claim is dubious.

The United States, who previously admitted that they were a bit behind in developing these projectiles, made a major announcement on the subject this week.

UPI reports a B-52H Stratofortress aircraft successfully released a AGM-1831 Air-launched Rapid Response Weapon (ARRW) over the weekend that achieved speeds five times greater than the speed of sound.

The test was conducted somewhere off the coast of Southern California, it said.

“This was a major accomplishment by the ARRW team for the weapons enterprise and our Air Force,” Brig. Gen. Heath Collins, Air Force program executive officer for weapons, said in a statement.

“The team’s tenacity, expertise and commitment were key in overcoming the past year’s challenges to get us to the recent success.”

The news comes just months after China secretly test launched a hypersonic missile that circumnavigated the globe before hitting its target.
