Default Vaccine and Religion

There is a story in the news today about a woman who needs a kidney transplant. She has a friend who will provide the kidney, but the hospital will not perform the surgery unless both women get the COVID vaccine. They both refuse to get the vaccine because of their religion, so the woman is prepared to die because she cannot get the surgery. I am not an expert on religion or medicine, but, apparently the woman's religion will allow her to undergo major surgery, involving multiple drugs and medical intervention, to remove her kidney and replace it with another person's kidney, and then take anti-rejection drugs forever. But, the religion will not allow her to be vaccinated for the COVID virus. Can someone please explain how this makes any sense?

"Can someone please explain how this makes any sense?"


Because it's not really about their "religion?"

It doesn't. And like Judge Judy says, "if it doesn't make sense, it isn't true"

there are actually very few religions who have documented, doctrinal reasons for not believing in immunizations.
Despite the fact that it has been dominating national news, evangelical Christianity isn’t one of them.
Still, some Christians and other people of faith are citing their religion as a reason why they won’t get the COVID-19 vaccine.

Curious as to what their “religion” is?

From what I've read, it isn't Catholicism or any other mainstream Christian sect I've heard of or Judaism or Muslim or Buddhism as all of them encourage the use of Covid (and other) vaccinations. It's weird how some folks who have had other vaccinations suddenly find objections based in non-specified religions.

If she would rather die than get the vaccination, then I guess that is her right.

And, why doesn't the news media find out what that religion or cult is. Inquiring minds want to know.

Because it is not a piece of the "agenda" puzzle!

It just means there is now one less kidney patient taking up space where someone more deserving is on a waiting list.

Hmm, in an almost, but not quite sarcastic voice, "Would her death qualify as being caused by COVID? or should the cause of death be recorded as stupidity."

Where do major US religions stand on the COVID-19 vaccination? - East Idaho News

This might be of some help.

It's her choice, and we all know that women have legal control of their bodies.....
