‘The irony of debating voluntary assisted dying in the age of Covid
This week the NSW parliament will start considering a bill to legalise medically-assisted death at the instigation of the person dying.
Morning Double Shot has discontinued daily editorials, so you’re spared from getting the editor’s tortured views on this fraught moral issue.
Instead, reflect on the irony of such legislation being enacted, now in NSW and recently in Queensland, while the Covid-19 pandemic continues to rage.
For coming up to two years, our federation has been ripped apart, our society gutted, and our economy filleted, to prevent deaths from a virus whose pact with the Grim Reaper mostly is confined to harvesting the souls of the elderly and people with other health risk factors who could easily have been taken by old age, or other natural causes, rather than Covid-19.
Yet, at the same time, majorities in our parliaments are determined to make medically-assisted dying for people in extremis lawful.
Our political representatives both fear and embrace death in making laws profoundly affecting our social fabric. Verily, it’s a strange world we now live in.’
VITT is a rare, and sometimes fatal, blood-clotting condition triggered by COVID vaccines.
In an exclusive interview with The Defender, Tom Wilson, Jessica’s husband, and Thomas Ivancie, her uncle, said Twitter’s fact-checkers — who have never spoken with their family to verify Jessica’s story — affixed “misleading” and “misinformation” labels to her obituary.
Because of the Twitter labels, people couldn’t interact with Jessica’s obituary, or share the story.
On Aug. 29, Jessica went to a Seattle pharmacy to get her COVID vaccine and was told she would be receiving the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) shot. Jessica had no underlying health conditions, her husband said.
Jessica was “vehemently opposed” to taking the vaccine, “considering her stay-at-home mom status, state of good health and young age in conjunction with the known and unknown risk of an unproven vaccine,” Wilson said.
But Jessica was pressured to get the vaccine due to a vaccine mandate at their child’s school requiring “room moms” who wished to serve in the classroom be fully vaccinated.
According to Ivancie, Jessica became ill after receiving J&J’s vaccine, and went to the emergency room at UW Medical Center.
Ivancie said Jessica had been vaccinated and was suffering various severe symptoms. But attending doctors insisted on giving Jessica a COVID test and sent her home. They did not pursue any other treatment.
Once at home, Jessica lost consciousness and was taken by ambulance to UW Medical Center in Seattle, where doctors diagnosed her with VITT, Ivancie explained. A team of doctors worked to relieve pressure on Jessica’s brain, but ultimately, it was too late.
As a young mother, Jessica was a dedicated listener to Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s “RFK, Jr. The Defender” podcast. She was well-informed about COVID vaccines and adamantly opposed to getting the injections, Ivancie said.
“Jessica died as a direct result of an experimental vaccine — a vaccine that she vehemently opposed taking. Jessica felt coerced. She felt robbed of her ability to choose. Her ability to say ‘no’ — to say no to a medical procedure she did not want — was taken from her.”
Her obituary said:
“During the last weeks of her life, the world turned dark with heavy-handed vaccine mandates. Local and state governments were determined to strip away her right to consult her wisdom and enjoy her freedom.
“Her passion to be actively involved in her children’s education — which included being a room mom in her child’s classroom — was, once again, blocked by government mandate.”
Jessica’s husband said he received Pfizer’s vaccine “several months back” because his work involved traveling and being around a lot of people.
“It was best for our family that I got the vaccine,” Wilson said. But Jessica was “in a limited bubble as a stay-at-home mom, was of a young age and was concerned about the unproven nature of these vaccines.”
“She didn’t feel it was needed for her,” Wilson said. “But then as the mandates came out, Jessica and those mothers who are very very involved in their children’s lives — she wanted to be involved in every step of their lives. That was her main priority, her kids.”
In a memorial to his wife, Wilson wrote:
“Ultimately, this one-size-fits-all government policy cost Jessica her life, my children their mother, me my forever love and resulted in the loss of a very special person who touched many and was just making her dent felt on this world.”
Wilson told The Defender:
“My view on this whole story is — I want the world leaders to take notice because Jessica’s life is irreplaceable. There was a high value on her life and what she did for our family and for others. She touched a lot of people and there’s no replacing Jessica.
“I just hope that those people who are in control, who are setting these mandates at the top, are listening to her story and how we can protect the next Jessica from having to take this vaccine should they not think it’s necessary for them.”
Wilson said physicians at the hospital “100%” recognized she had a vaccine adverse event and told him they reported it to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) managed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Jessica’s VAERS report was entered into the agency’s system on Sept. 8. Her VAERS ID number is 1683324. Her family to date has not been contacted by any government officials.
Twitter censors Jessica’s obituary attributing her death to J&J’s vaccine
The tribute, published by The Oregonian, said the mother of two died from “COVID-19 vaccine-induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia.” It was marked as “misleading” by the social media giant over the weekend, according to Twitter users.
Twitter fact-checkers put a “misleading” label on Jessica’s obituary and prevented people from replying to, sharing or liking the tweet.
The fact-check warning was removed by Twitter on Monday morning following the backlash.
Wilson said he’s not on social media, but said he was disgusted when he learned from others that his wife’s obituary was being censored by big tech companies for being “misleading” or for containing “misinformation.”
Ivancie said he also received reports that Facebook was censoring Jessica’s obituary, and confirmed the family had not been contacted by fact-checkers from either tech company to verify Jessica’s story.
Ivancie said, “When you can’t have the truth come out, you’re thwarting people’s ability to make decisions. It is scary how these entities have the power to censor.”
Ivancie said it feels like a second death — a death of the truth at the hands of these massive powerful entities. “Imagine if we had a free and open exchange of truth, how this could change the narrative for others,” Ivancie said.
“We aren’t telling people not to get vaccinated,” Jessica’s husband said, “that’s not what we’re doing. We want people to understand Jessica’s story and her right to choose, and in her mind, she had no choice in the matter with all these mandates.”
“We’re just hoping people in these positions of power setting these mandates will listen to our story,” he said.
'Thank you very much, Mr. President, Ms. Commissioner, ladies and gentlemen.
Mrs. Montserrat deserves the credit for this important topic being on the agenda today.
Thank you very much for that. A lot has been said about the topic of development, purchase and distribution of Covid vaccines, but questions about the sometimes devastating consequences of vaccination have been left out. I would like to speak about this.
Did you know that more people have died this year from the side effects of the Covid-19 vaccine than side effects from all other vaccination combined in the last 20 years?
What about the countless vaccine injuries, some of them being severe?
Why do we hear so little about this? Is something being concealed here?
When the vaccination against swine flu had negative consequences a few years ago, the vaccine was quickly withdrawn from circulation.
Even today, thousands of people, especially young people, are suffering from the consequences of the vaccination.
I know a young person who was vaccinated at that time and who now suffers from narcolepsy
He has finished his education and would like to work. However, he is not allowed to have a driver’s license because of the constant danger of suddenly falling asleep, and he cannot find a job. Unfortunately, his illness is not recognized as a vaccine injury.
The manufacturer of the vaccine was exempted from liability for vaccine consequences.
Obviously the same thing is happening again today. Despite the massively increasing vaccine damage, of which, as I said, we hear nothing, hardly hear anything, vaccination continues like there’s no tomorrow. We just keep vaccinating.
Why aren’t these vaccines being pulled out of circulation, like the swine flu vaccine once was?
And who is actually liable for this increasingly obvious vaccine damage?
Dear [EU] commission, pull the emergency brake on these vaccines and stop this experimentation on humans. I beg you!
I beg you, please clarify the liability issue and the many vaccine-injured will thank you.'https://rairfoundation.com/german-mep-more-people-died-from-covid-vax-in-2021-than-in-the-last-20-years-from-all-vaccines-combined-video/
