Sr. Deirdre Byrne, a surgeon and family doctor, was granted a religious accommodation Friday morning for her moral opposition to COVID jabs by the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia
Byrne’s rejection of the COVID shots is based on their connection to aborted babies via testing on fetal cell lines, which she denounced during a speech at the August 2021 Truth for Health’s “Stop the Shot” conference.
In the lawsuit, Byrne argues that she believes abortion, the killing of babies in the womb, is a “diabolical medical procedure,” and that abortion “interlocks with and supports experimentation involving abortive fetal tissues and cell lines derived from them, which are now central to the vaccine industry, most recently respecting the mRNA and DNA COVID-19 genetic, experimental injections.”
The only stated basis for the denial of Byrne’s religious exemption was that it would pose an “undue hardship” to D.C. Health.
Thomas More Society attorney Christopher Ferrara “observed that D.C. Health does not seem to have granted a single request for religious exemption from the vaccine mandate.”
“During D.C. Health’s nearly six months of purported consideration” of Byrne’s religious exemption request, “Byrne practiced medicine without need of vaccination, and without objection by any of the hospitals and clinics that benefit from her unpaid volunteer medical services for those in need,” the Thomas More Society noted.
