The University of Colorado Health hospital system in Colorado is taking one of the most drastic steps to promote Biden’s tyrannical vaccine mandates – refusing transplants to most unvaccinated patients under “almost all situations.”
Under the new policy, it would require all organ donors to be vaccinated, and the hospital we thought can save our lives is becoming woke.
In fact, it has already prevented one woman from receiving life-saving treatment.
Leilani Lutali has stage 5 renal failure and met her kidney donor, Jaimee Fougner, at Bible study. Lutali and Fougner are not vaccinated, with Fougner saying she doesn’t want to get the vaccine for religious reasons. In September, UCHealth sent them both a letter about the vaccination policy, saying they had 30 days to get their first dose. If they refuse, Lutali and Fougner will be removed from the transplant list.

In August, Lutali, who has stage 5 renal failure was told by the hospital that she would not need to be vaccinated in order to receive her new kidney and after she was able to find a known donor willing to donate a kidney, she was only informed of the hospital’s new segregation policy when she received her letter in the mail.
About the hospital’s policy and their reasoning behind foregoing the rushed vaccine, CBS4 Denver spoke with Lutali, which is it has “too many unknowns,” according to her.
“I said I’ll sign a medical waiver. I have to sign a waiver anyway for the transplant itself, releasing them from anything that could possibly go wrong.
It’s surgery, it’s invasive. I sign a waiver for my life. I’m not sure why I can’t sign a waiver for the Covid shot.”
CBS Denver reported:
Jaimee Fougner, who is donating a kidney to Leilani Lutali, said she hasn’t received the vaccine for religious reasons. Lutali said she hasn’t gotten the vaccine because there are too many unknowns. The women, who met in Bible study, didn’t know about the need for vaccines before surgery until last week.
“It’s your choice on what treatment you have. In Leilani’s case, the choice has been taken from her. Her life has now been held hostage because of this mandate.
Here I am, willing to be a direct donor to her. It does not affect any other patient on the transplant list. How can I sit here and allow them to murder my friend when I’ve got a perfectly good kidney and can save her life?”
On Wednesday, The University of Colorado Health (UCHealth), which operates dozens of medical facilities and hospitals throughout the state, confirmed the segregation policy to the New York Post, claiming that they were making the change because Covid-19 patients are 20 percent more likely to die.
But, if they catch Covid before receiving a life-saving transplant, how much more likely are they to die? Or even if you don’t catch Covid? Many of those on the waiting list are presumably medically ineligible to receive the vaccine, there’s no doubt that it’s higher than 20%.
Not to mention the vaccine is so bad at preventing breakthrough infections that the tyrannical US health order is about to force a third booster dose, which will be most likely followed by perpetual doses every six months – Being vaccinated doesn’t even provide immunity (just check the CDC’s updated definition). Vaccinated patients waiting for an organ are about just as likely to contract a breakthrough case after a transplant as the non-vaccinated.
UCHealth doubled down on their refusal to operate on the unvaccinated, saying that several other surgery centers have covid vaccine mandates for their patients in place already, and many more are following suit.
“In almost all situations, transplant patients and living donors are now required to be vaccinated against Covid-19 in addition to meeting other health requirements and receiving additional vaccinations.
Physicians must consider the short and long-term health risks for patients as they consider whether to recommend an organ transplant.”
The hospital’s policy has forced Lutali to search elsewhere for her operation. Unfortunately, she has checked with every surgery center in Colorado who would be able to perform a kidney transplant and none of them will provide care to her because she is unvaccinated. She is now looking outside the state for a hospital that will be willing to take her.
Like Lutali’s donor said, her life is being held hostage over this vaccine mandate.
How many others will be denied care and left to perish because of these policies?
So much for that “if we save just one life” nonsense. That was never the case.
