Over 170 Houston Hospital Employees Suspended Without Pay For Refusing COVID-19 Vaccine
Houston Methodist Hospital in Texas has suspended over 170 employees for two weeks without pay, after they refused to take the COVID-19 vaccine. The suspensions come after a new May policy requiring all 26,000 workers to get full courses of either the Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson vaccines by June 7 or face termination.
The hospital says 99% of its employees – 24,947 – are fully vaccinated, however a group of 178 workers who have refused and have now been punished.
Meanwhile, 117 employees are suing the hospital, claiming that they’ve been pressured into becoming ‘human guinea pigs’.
Which they have, and which just happens to be…problematic, shall we say.
The Nuremberg Code (German: Nürnberger Kodex) is a set of research ethics principles for human experimentation created by the USA v Brandt court as one result of the Nuremberg trials at the end of the Second World War. In a review written on the 50th anniversary of the Brandt verdict, Katz writes that “a careful reading of the judgment suggests that” the authors wrote the Kodex “for the practice of human experimentation whenever it is being conducted.”
The ten points of the code were given in the section of the judges’ verdict entitled “Permissible Medical Experiments”:
- The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.
Well how about that, a violation right out of the gate, and not the only one either. Clearly, HMH has wilfully flouted both the letter and spirit of Nuremberg. But there’s another slight problem.
The Kodex has not been officially accepted as law by any nation or as official ethics guidelines by any association. In fact, the Kodex’s reference to Hippocratic duty to the individual patient and the need to provide information was not initially favored by the American Medical Association. Katz observes that the Western world initially dismissed the Nuremberg Code as a “code for barbarians, but unnecessary (or superfluous) for ordinary physicians.”
So, no chance of Nuremberg providing any meaningful protection for people being strongarmed by Fascist goons into accepting the “vaccine” over their vehement objections, then. However, that doesn’t necessary mean the Code is entirely useless. At least it’s now been unequivocally established that the HMH personnel fall into the “barbarians” category, along with all others attempting to coerce people into yielding to Official Will™. Clarity is always a good thing, particularly these foggy days.
