More than 100 employees of a Texas hospital have filed a lawsuit against their employer at a Texas hospital for requiring them to be vaccinated against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Virus with one of the experimental injections in circulation.
The lawsuit against Houston Methodist Hospital was filed Friday by a total of 117 hospital employees who are resisting mandatory vaccinations, FOX 26 in Houston reported.
The lawsuit states that, for the first time in U.S. history, an employer is forcing its employees to be vaccinated “with an experimental COVID-19 mRNA gene modification injection” or be fired.
The first page of the lawsuit includes a statement from Houston Methodist San Jacinto Hospital CEO David Bernard, which reads:
“100% vaccination is more important than your individual freedom. Everyone [sic] of you is replaceable. If you don’t like what your [sic] doing you can leave and we will replace your spot.”
The lawsuit states that the employees involved in the case claimed they felt they were being treated like “guinea pigs” by being forced to be inoculated with a drug whose results are currently being researched. If they did not accept it, they would be out of a job.
Dr. Marc Boom, president, and CEO of Houston Methodist, responded to the lawsuit by saying that most of the employees had already been vaccinated and that the attitude of these 100 or so people who refused to be inoculated jeopardized the safety of the rest and the hospital’s patients.
He added: “The COVID-19 vaccines have been shown through rigorous trials to be very safe and very effective and are not experimental,” which is false. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the vaccines are still in the experimental phase. They are still in this experimental stage because they have not yet been proven safe, as Boom is claiming.
Attorney Jared R. Woodfill, who represents the employees, said that the mandate on the threat of dismissal violates the World War II Nuremberg Code, which establishes ethical standards against human experimentation.
Vaccination must be a completely voluntary act, which cannot be mediated by force, deception, threat, or coercion, the lawyer stated.
In addition to the moral questions associated with the risk of forcing employees to be vaccinated, there is a legal issue that is no less controversial.
After World War II ended, the Nuremberg hearings revealed that Nazi doctors had forced or coerced prisoners of war and others into risky and even deadly human experimentation. The tribunal helped create what became known as the Nuremberg Code of 1947, which sets out several international standards to regulate human experimentation activities. Most countries, including the United States, adhere to and are party to these regulations.
The first and most extensive principle of the Code sets out the strict conditions for establishing the voluntary consent of those undergoing human experimentation. It includes that individuals may not be exposed to “any element of force, fraud, deceit, coercion, duress, overreaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion.”
There is no doubt that if the hospital requires its employees to receive these experimental treatments, it is, by definition, coercive and violates the first principle of the Nuremberg Code. That makes it, at least on this point, manifestly unethical and in breach of the legal obligations to which the United States is internationally committed.
