A former staff nurse at Boston Medical Center who believes Covid-19 vaccines are an affront to her God-given immune system and were grown out of the remains of aborted fetuses today sued Boston Medical Center for firing her in October for refusing to get the shots.
Allison Cyr is the third former BMC nurse in two weeks to sue in US District Court in Boston over their shot-related firings. Like the other two nurses, Allison Cyr claims the hospital discriminated against her religion by refusing to grant her an exemption.
All three are represented by the same Amherst attorney, who, unlike the attorney representing shot-rejecting Mass General Brigham employees, is bringing individual suits for each worker rather than filing a single class-action case. He also represents a Children's Hospital technician and three state workers who have filed similar suits.
In her hospital exemption request, filed with her complaint, Cyr said she is a member of True Hope Ministry of San Clemente, CA, from which Pastor David Hall submitted a statement on why vaccines - and even just Covid-19 tests and masks - are "an affront" to true Christians.
[I]t is an affront to a Christian to inject the body with a man-made substance in an effort to "improve" the immune system - whereas God has already created the body with mechanisms to ward off disease.
We as believers in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior believe in the tenets of the Holy Scruptures which state we are made in the image of God and we are image-bearers of God. We will be called into account for all we do - including what we do to our bodies! To be forced to do something which violates our beliefs is to sin against God.
Hall then goes on to say that Covid-19 vaccines are different from other shots a believer might have gotten because " many of these vaccines have been cultured in aborted fetal tissue and carry the DNA of a male aborted baby." However, he does not address how the leader of the Catholic church, who also opposes abortion, urged his followers to get vaccinated.
In addition to her state religious beliefs, Cyr also refused the shots because:
I am also breastfeeding my 6 month old daughter. We will also be trying for another baby soon. I will not expose my child or myself to a vaccine that has not been completely FDA approved or has had long term testing on breastfeeding moms or pregnant women.
As do all the other lawsuits filed by Peter Vickery, Cyr's complaint alleges the vaccines don't really work anyway.
