A man was dropped from the heart transplant list at a Boston hospital and the reason why will leave you red with rage

Leftists for the better part of a decade have made a point to convince Americans that healthcare is a “human right.”

Hospitals have traditionally helped patients suffering from ailments and maladies like heart disease, even in cases where lifestyle choices may have directly contributed to their health problems.

But recently a man was dropped from the heart transplant list at a Boston hospital and the reason why will leave you red with rage.

DJ Ferguson is a 31-year-old father fighting for his life at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

This week, according to an interview with local media by his father, DJ was told by the hospital that he is no longer eligible for a heart transplant because he isn’t vaccinated against COVID-19.

According to Boston CBS, “The family says he was at the front of the line to receive a transplant but because he has not received the COVID-19 vaccination he is no longer eligible according to hospital policy. Ferguson says his son refuses to get the shot.”

DJ’s father David Ferguson says that getting the vaccine goes against his son’s beliefs.

“It’s kind of against his basic principles; he doesn’t believe in it. It’s a policy they are enforcing and so because he won’t get the shot, they took him off the list of a heart transplant.”

The hospital justified the policy by saying that research had shown that transplant recipients were at a greater risk of dying from COVID compared to non-transplant patients.

“Our Mass General Brigham healthcare system requires several CDC-recommended vaccines, including the COVID-19 vaccine, and lifestyle behaviors for transplant candidates to create both the best chance for a successful operation and to optimize the patient’s survival after transplantation, given that their immune system is drastically suppressed. Patients are not active on the waitlist without this,” the hospital claimed.

Ferguson said that he may move his son to another hospital but he fears he might be too weak to do so.

A GoFundMe page set up for DJ says he has requested that the hospital test him for the antibodies because he suspects he already contracted and recovered from COVID-19.
