Nurses Who Felt Pressured—Why This Must Be Your Choice

May 4, 2021

We are being flooded with requests for help as employers, schools, airlines and cruise lines are forcing people to get COVID injections—or lose their jobs, hopes of graduating or ability to travel.

I'll share a moving story of three women below that Facebook, the media and Big Pharma are desperately trying to hide from you.

In just one week (April 17-23), reported deaths after these injections jumped 358 to 3,544 total. At the same time, there were 32,822 new bad reactions the same week, bringing the total to 118,902. This means there are 51 vaccine-related deaths every day, five miscarriages per day and more than 4,689 bad reactions every single day. These numbers are likely less than 1% of the real reactions to these shots, according to a study Harvard did on this vaccine reporting system.

The COVID shot(s) should always be your personal decision. If we don't stand for this freedom now, a vaccine passport may begin with a COVID shot, but it will not end there. Vaccine passports present a serious threat to freedom. Tell governors and legislators to Stop Vaccine Passports and tracing apps! - Mat

I watched three nurses shake as they shared their personal stories of uncontrollable, violent convulsions and whole-body seizures that started after they got either the Pfizer or Moderna COVID injections.

I wept as I heard about their heartbreaking situation.

Shawn Skelton was a certified nurse aide (CNA) for 25 years, Angelia Desselle managed a surgery center, and Kristi Simmonds, an RN and nurse practitioner, was the clinical manager of a home health agency. They were interviewed together with their bodies still quivering months after taking the shots. They described themselves as pro-vaccine. Their employers pressured them to get the COVID shots. But no one explained the potential adverse reactions.

Their lives have been forever changed. All three have lost their jobs, are unable to drive and face skyrocketing medical bills. One moved in with her retired father so he could help care for her.

Now these ladies are in contact with hundreds of others who are experiencing the same tremors and convulsions after receiving the Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson shots.

These reactions demonstrate how this injection must be your private decision, free of coercion. Now we are seeing vaccine passports being pushed across America and the world. Fight back for your freedom. We must say NO to mandatory vaccine passports and tracing apps!

Fake news and social media's censorship and coercion regarding these injections are hurting real people! I am deeply concerned about the media blackout of these serious reactions to the COVID shots.

Facebook erased these women's personal stories and now threatens to permanently ban them. PolitiFact claimed Angelia's story was fake because the reporters couldn't reach her because she was in the hospital! When she was released from the hospital and contacted the two young writers, she offered to provide work history, medical documentation and video evidence—but PolitiFact refused to speak with her or even respond.

But what is even more shocking is that these women say they uncovered the fact that these seizure-like reactions were known during the trials and then hidden! A woman who was in one of the Moderna trials is suffering the same uncontrollable shakes. Moderna hid these facts from you! And these companies have zero liability for damage their shots have caused.

These women are now advocating for informed consent for this injection and that these shots must remain the free choice of the person receiving them. That is exactly what LC Action has been arguing—that this injection must be your free choice. But New York, California, Hawaii, Alaska and Nevada are all rolling out vaccine passports; some have already launched, and others expect to be ready this summer.

Demand freedom at both levels of government through your urgent fax to these decision-makers. Say NO MANDATORY VACCINE PASSPORTS OR TRACKING AND TRACING APPS.

These women's lives have been changed forever.

When ERs, doctors and neurologists learned that their convulsions began right after the injections, some refused to treat them. Others admitted they have no idea how to treat them. One doctor witnessed Kristi have a violent convulsive episode in her office. Kristi's husband held her, reminding her to keep breathing through the seizures. "I have no idea what to do," the doctor admitted, asking Kristi's husband, "What do I do?"

For some of these women, their insurance is refusing coverage.

This injection has become a 24/7 nightmare for these women and others like them. Words cannot adequately describe their stories as they fell from full-time employment to having to ask for help to get into bed and then writhing and shaking uncontrollably.

I wept, then became angry that people are not being informed, and some are being forced to take these shots against their will. I urge you to watch them tell their stories on our website (see below). Then demand freedom at both levels of government through your urgent fax to these key leaders.

Yesterday we celebrated as Florida's governor, Ron DeSantis, signed legislation banning vaccine passports and removing all remaining local COVID restrictions. In addition, we also sent a special email to everyone we know living in Montana and gave them the tools to urge their governor to sign a similar bill on his desk. These victories and efforts are only possible because of support from people like you who keep our organization on the front lines.

Take a stand with us by signing up for monthly recurring donations or give a one-time gift today.
