Healthcare Workers and Hospital Staff in Shreveport and Monroe Join the Fight for Medical Freedom
SHREVEPORT, LA – Today, healthcare workers in Shreveport and Monroe joined the fight for personal autonomy over medical decisions, filing lawsuits against Ochsner LSU Health Monroe. The suits seek to enforce the affirmative right to refuse medical treatment under the Louisiana Constitution and the Louisiana Informed Consent Statute. The plaintiffs in both suits are requesting a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction to enjoin the Ochsner vaccine mandate.
“The fight is just beginning. Every day we receive more calls and emails from employees around the state who are being forced to decide between taking medicine they do not want and feeding their families, “ says Plaintiffs’ attorney Jimmy Faircloth. “It’s an unlawful forced choice; not a free choice.
Any doubt about the sincerity of Ochsner’s intentions was eliminated by the most recent threat to charge employees up to $2,000 per year for unvaccinated spouses.
This threat has produced the opposite of its intended result; people are becoming angry at the bullying.
We look forward to moving this important issue through the courts.
At the end of the day, the fundamental right of individuals will prevail over a narrative that becomes more detached from science each day.” Retyped from Press Release, so typos are possible. See original press release here:
