I’ve talked before about why I think people with upcoming medical procedures need to start considering banking their own blood.* It appears that other people are now thinking the exact same thing. An unjabbed donor matching service has now started up – Safe Blood Donation.
They don’t store the blood. They just match you to somebody who is willing to give you unjabbed blood.
Here is an example of why this is important…
A baby was born in New Zealand. The little squirt had a heart condition, however – pulmonary valve stenosis – a hardening or narrowing of one of the valves in the heart that helps squirt blood to the lungs. It’s a fixable condition requiring surgery that the parents were desperate to get for their child.
They love their baby. They want the best for it.
And because of that love, they told the hospital that they would like to use unjabbed blood for the transfusion for the surgery. The parents knew the facts. They knew why.
But the doctors refused.
(Make sure you can feed your family regardless of what happens. Check out our free QUICKSTART Guide to building a 3-layer food storage system to learn more.)
The baby still hasn’t had the surgery performed yet, and this is why.
The government soon got involved, as a lawyer stepped in to appeal to the Auckland High Court for the baby to be forcibly taken from the parents, turned over to the state, and then to let the surgery proceed with whatever blood the hospital chose.
According to that lawyer, “a child with this condition would have been treated by now.”
In that, he’s absolutely right.
A child with that condition would have been treated by now, but that lack of care is not the result of the parents. That is a direct result of the healthcare “professionals.”
There were a number of protestors in the area advocating on the family’s behalf. Reports indicate that 30 of them were unjabbed matches of the baby’s blood type and actively desired to give blood to that little baby. The healthcare workers are refusing to accept it because they claim these types of donations should only be done in special circumstances and it wouldn’t give them the blood they would need for the baby’s surgery.
How can 30 grown adults not provide enough blood for a four-month-old baby?
Check out some of these headlines to see the way this story is being spun.
[Update: the baby was taken from its parents and placed in state “protection” for the surgery to proceed with whatever blood was available.]
What has happened to healthcare?
- What happens if a patient says that they do not eat pork? Do we shovel bacon onto every plate they get?
- What if a patient says they only eat halal? Do we just give them whatever we decide they should eat?
- If a patient asks for a Christian chaplain, do we then send up a druid?
Why are we being selective as to what type of care we give to certain patients? Since when did this become okay?
What on earth is the point of all that HR-mandated “diversity” and tolerance training if this is the culmination of it all? Is this tolerance of people with differing viewpoints? Or when we say “tolerance” now, do we really mean, “Shut up and abandon everything you believe in and be okay with everything that we do?”
Regardless of what you think about the jab, why, as a healthcare worker, would you want to force something on a patient that they do not want? Doesn’t this set a terrifying precedent?
Food for thought
So, again, if you live in the United States, you may want to consider banking your own blood if your health permits and you have a medical procedure coming up in the near future.
(There are clinics for this. Don’t pull a Kramer and put it in your freezer.)
If that’s not an option, then Safe Blood Donation sounds like a potential alternative.
Considering that the Red Cross, where 40% of donations come from, doesn’t label blood as either jabbed or unjabbed, nor do they believe that jabbed blood is unsafe, that’s really the only option I know of to ensure that you end up getting the “status” of blood that you would like. (In case you were wondering, you can bank your own blood at the Red Cross.)
