Teen denied transplant over COVID shot status … gets her kidney!

A teen girl who was denied a kidney transplant during the COVID pandemic because she did not take the experimental vaccination has gotten her transplant.

But a report from the Christian Post confirms that a lawsuit over the discrimination she suffered at the hands of Duke University as well as a proposal that would make it illegal to do that to others, continues.

The Christian Post said it was Yulia Hicks who just days ago was given a kidney from an “amazing live donor.” The report cited an update on GiveSendGo’s fundraising page, “Kidney for Yulia.”

Her family had charged last winter that Duke University refused her a transplant because of her vaccination status.

She is the adopted daughter of Chrissy and Lee Hicks, and according to the Christian Post report is recovering well.

The update said, “We are now focusing our attention on Yulia’s healing, getting Yulia’s law passed, and the lawsuit with Duke.”

The law, House Bill 586, is pending in the Republican-majority state assembly in North Carolina, and would state plainly that “an individual’s right to health care is not diminished by a refusal to get a COVID-19 vaccine.”

It would make such discrimination illegal. It already has been adopted by the House and is pending in the Senate.

Further, the family has pending a lawsuit against Duke, in federal court in North Carolina, charging that the hospital violated Title II of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that bans discrimination on the basis of religion at places of public accommodation.

The complaint seeks $5 million in compensatory damages for the “intentional infliction of emotional distress” as well as undetermined punitive damages.

IMPORTANT NOTE: “Election denier!” “Science denier!” “Climate-change denier!” “Conspiracy theorist!” And then there’s “hate speech,” “fake news,” “disinformation,” “misinformation,” even something called “MALinformation.” A bizarre new lexicon has been conjured up by America’s elites, the SOLE PURPOSE of which is to discredit and ridicule – and if at all possible, CENSOR ENTIRELY – speech that doesn’t support their increasingly dark and deranged agenda. Tucker Carlson is just the latest.

In the greatest imaginable irony, the nation once boasting the most robust culture of freedom of speech and the press – undergirded by the strongest constitutional protections for those rights – is now ground zero for a total war on free expression.

How could this possibly happen in the United States of America? It’s all explained as never before in the sensational new issue of WND’s critically acclaimed WHISTLEBLOWER magazine, titled “THE ELITES’ ALL-OUT WAR ON FREE SPEECH.” WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
