Hospital System Will Deny Life-Saving Transplants to Unvaccinated Patients


By Todd Starnes for

A woman in need of a kidney transplant was turned away from a Colorado hospital because she was not vaccinated against the China Virus.

Leilani Lutali received a letter from the University of Colorado Hospital telling her that she had been removed from the waiting list for a kidney.

“The transplant team at University of Colorado Hospital has determined that it is necessary to place you inactive on the waiting list. You will be inactivated on the list for non-compliance by not receiving the COVID vaccine. You will have 30 days to begin the vaccination series,” read the letter.

“If your decision is to refuse COVID vaccination you will be removed from the kidney transplant list,” the hospital stated. “You will continue to accrue waiting time, but you will not receive a kidney offer while listed inactive. Once you complete the COVID vaccination series you will be reactivated on the kidney transplant list pending any other changes in your health condition.”

State Rep. Tim Geitner blasted the hospital’s decision, calling it “disgusting.”

UCHealth released a statement defending its decision to deny life-saving transplants to the unvaccinated.
