NEWCASTLE, U.K., June 2, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – A 44-year old radio presenter for BBC Newcastle in the U.K. has died as a result of blood clots following her dose of the Oxford/AstraZeneca COVID-19 injection.

Lisa Shaw died Friday, May 21, at age 44. Media reports at the time merely stated that she had been in hospital for a “short illness.” 

However, fuller details only began to emerge about the successful radio presenter’s death after her family stepped in and revealed the link to one of the experimental COVID-19 injections. 

Her relatives released a second statement following her death, in which they revealed that Shaw had developed “severe” headaches only one week after having the Oxford/AstraZeneca injection, and fell seriously ill a few days later. She was then transferred to the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle and treated in intensive care for blood clots and bleeding. 

The family’s statement read: “Lisa developed severe headaches a week after receiving her AstraZeneca vaccine and fell seriously ill a few days later. She was treated by the Royal Victoria Infirmary’s intensive care team for blood clots and bleeding in her head.”

The mother of one was not known to have any underlying health problems.

Veteran journalist Katie Hopkins revealed that sources close to the family noted how the family had even been told by the hospital that Shaw’s death would “definitely not be documented” as linked to the vaccine.

Meanwhile, a statement released by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) about Shaw’s death, read: “As with any serious suspected adverse reaction, reports with a fatal outcome are fully evaluated by the MHRA, including an assessment of post-mortem details if available. Our detailed and rigorous review into reports of blood clots occurring together with thrombocytopenia is ongoing.” 

While initial reports in the mainstream media failed to mention that Shaw had recently taken the AstraZeneca jab, after the release of the statement by her family, some major news outlets subsequently reported that she died shortly after having received the COVID-19 injection.  

The BBC, Shaw’s former employer, continues to downplay the connection between her death and the COVID injection, writing only that an investigation will be conducted into the link and that a coroner will consider if the cause of Shaw’s death “might have been complicated by her having had the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine.”

The BBC says that it has seen the interim fact-of-death certificate, which lists “complication of AstraZeneca Covid-19 virus vaccination” only as a consideration, with the cause of death only to be determined following the investigation. 

Notwithstanding the mainstream media’s reticence about forming the link between Shaw’s death and the injection, a number of social media users have commented on the dangers posed by the injection. David Kurten, leader of the Heritage Party and former member of the London Assembly, quipped, “Lethal injection? BBC presenter dies after taking experimental Covid ‘vaccine’.”

Meanwhile Law-or-Fiction, a group of lawyers critiquing the government’s lockdown restrictions, wrote: “This loss is very sad. How many deaths will it take? How many to lose their sight?”

Official government advice in the U.K. is that those aged under 40 are offered an alternative to the AstraZeneca injection, due to the risk of blood clots and thrombocytopenia. The injection has been subject to numerous headlines in recent months, as reports of blood clots following its administering led a number of countries to suspend the injection for various age groups.

People of goodwill can disagree about the safety, efficacy and religious implications of a new vaccine for the coronavirus.

But, everyone should agree on this point:

No government can force anyone who has reached legal adulthood to be vaccinated for the coronavirus. Equally, no government can vaccinate minors for the coronavirus against the will of their parents or guardians.

Please SIGN this urgent petition which urges policymakers at every level of government to reject calls for mandatory coronavirus vaccination.

Fear of a disease - which we know very little about, relative to other similar diseases - must not lead to knee-jerk reactions regarding public health, nor can it justify supporting the hidden agenda of governmental as well as non-governmental bodies that have apparent conflicts of interest in plans to restrict personal freedoms. 

The so-called "public health experts" have gotten it wrong many times during the current crisis. We should not, therefore, allow their opinions to rush decision-makers into policies regarding vaccination.

And, while some people, like Bill Gates, may have a lot of money, his opinion and that of his NGO (the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation) - namely, that life will not return to normal till people are widely vaccinated - should not be permitted to influence policy decisions on a coronavirus vaccination program.

Finally, we must also not allow the rush by pharmaceutical companies to produce a new coronavirus vaccine to, itself, become an imperative for vaccination.

Unwitting citizens must not be used as guinea pigs for New World Order ideologues, or Big Pharma, in pursuit of a vaccine (and, profits) which may not even protect against future mutated strains of the coronavirus.

And it goes without saying that the production of vaccines using aborted babies for cell replication is a total non-starter, as the technique is gravely immoral.

However, if after sufficient study of the issue, a person who has reached the age of majority wishes to be vaccinated with a morally produced vaccine, along with his children, that is his business.

But we cannot and will not permit the government to make that decision for us.

Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition, urging policymakers at all levels of government to reject mandatory coronavirus vaccination.

We realize many have general concerns about vaccines, but also recognize that millions of lives have been saved due to vaccines.
