WEST CHESTER, Ohio (LifeSiteNews) – An Ohio judge last week ruled that a hospital must treat a COVID-19 patient on a ventilator with the drug ivermectin following a lawsuit brought by the patient’s wife.
Butler County Common Pleas Judge Gregory Howard on Monday ordered West Chester Hospital to administer ivermectin to 51-year-old Jeffrey Smith, who was admitted to the ICU six weeks ago with COVID-19, according to the Ohio Capitol Journal. The hospital is required to give Smith 30mg of ivermectin per day for 21 days, Howard ruled.
Smith’s wife, Julie, had requested that West Chester Hospital treat her husband with the FDA-approved anti-parasitic drug, though the hospital refused to do so even after running out of other treatment options, according to a lawsuit filed by Julie Smith on August 20.
The lawsuit states that Mr. Smith, who was sedated and put on a ventilator at the beginning of August, is “on death’s doorstep” and has “suffered infection after infection” while in the ICU. His “chances of survival have dropped to less than 30%.”
“At this point, [West Chester Hospital] has exhausted its course of treatment and COVID-19 protocol in treating Jeffrey, which is unacceptable to Ms. Smith.”
With the FDA's decision to officially approve the Pfizer COVID jab, calls to vaccinate schoolchildren and more university students will become louder and more insistent.
But, America's children and young people must be protected from unknown future side-effects of these drugs, and parents' rights must be respected!
Please SIGN this urgent petition which demands that COVID vaccine mandates for schools and universities be prohibited in every U.S. state.
This petition will be sent to the leaders of every state legislature and to every governor in the United States, urging them to pass emergency legislation banning vaccine mandates for primary, secondary and university students.
Students simply have the right to be educated without being forced to violate deeply held principles and their own bodily integrity!
But, unfortunately, some private schools, like the Jesuit-run Brophy College Prep School in Phoenix, Arizona, have already mandated the COVID vaccine for their students, in spite of massive parental opposition. If parents or students reject the vaccine, students face intrusive weekly testing and exclusion from extra-curricular activities.
Also, more and more universities have actually started to disenroll unvaccinated students. But, even where that is not happening, not taking the vaccine often subjects students to masking, extra testing and additional administrative obstacles.
And now, with the Pfizer jab approval, Joe Biden's Surgeon General, Vivek Murthy, is threatening more mandates.
While it is true that the FDA approval for the Pfizer jab only pertains to those over 16 years of age, the pharmaceutical industry and some state actors have been pushing to get approval for pre-teens!
So, it stands to reason that the Federal government will try to impose vaccines on schools, for those 16 and over, as well as on all university students. But, eventually, such mandates could even apply to younger and younger schoolchildren.
That's why state legislatures and governors must fight back against any attempt to coerce school students to take a COVID vaccine against their will!
Science and logic should dictate public health policy. And both say that mandatory vaccination for children and university students is not only unnecessary, but very likely dangerous for the future health of America's youth.
The CDC reports that the rates of death, injury, and hospitalization are very, very low for children and adolescents and that COVID transmission in schools, both from student to staff and between students, is also very low.
And a European CDC study concluded that "no evidence has been found to suggest that children or educational settings are primary drivers of COVID transmission."
So, right now, we know that schoolchildren are at very low risk of becoming very ill as a result of COVID, or of even transmitting the virus.
But, we don't know how a hastily-prepared, unstudied vaccine will affect the health of millions of America's youth in the future.
Gambling with their future, and the future of our nation, should not even be entertained for one second!
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition urging state legislatures to ban COVID vaccine mandates for schools and universities - both public and private. Urge them to respect parents' rights, informed consent and bodily integrity.

Julie Smith began investigating alternative treatments, according to her lawsuit, and consulted Ohio-based pulmonologist Dr. Fred Wagshul, MD, who prescribed her husband ivermectin. Wagshul is a founding member of the Frontline COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance, a group of physicians that has developed coronavirus treatment protocols with ivermectin reportedly used by hundreds of doctors around the world.
Judge Howard’s ruling requires West Chester Hospital to comply with Dr. Wagshul’s ivermectin prescription and further orders by Wagshul regarding ivermectin for Jeffrey Smith.
Several studies have shown that ivermectin, a widely-used generic drug with virtually no risk of serious side effects, can be effective against COVID-19. Federal regulators and drug makers have nevertheless aggressively suppressed the medication, though various leading experts, like RNA vaccine inventor Dr. Robert Malone, have endorsed it as a COVID treatment.
Ralph Lorigo, the New York attorney representing Julie Smith, has won similar cases in other states in recent months, including against hospitals in New York and Illinois. The patients in all of those cases improved after being given ivermectin, despite having been in critical condition, Julie Smith’s lawsuit noted.
