Doctor Says Anti-Vaxxers Shouldn’t be Allowed Ventilators or Intensive Care When They’re Sick | 22 Words

A doctor has divided opinions this week with his stance on anti-vaxxers...

Because, according to this medical professional, people refusing vaccines should receive no treatment at all.

Controversial, I know. Here's the full story...

It's quite remarkable that there are still anti-vaxxers out there, isn't it?

Yep, even with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

But what exactly is an anti-vaxxer?

Well, an anti-vaxxer is a person who opposes vaccinations and the laws made that mandate the vaccination.

Anti-vaxxers aren't malicious...

They simply believe that there are healthier alternatives to vaccinations, but many argue their naivety puts their children in great danger.

And what these people need to realize is...

Not vaccinating themselves or their children is a very, very dangerous game to play.

But, sadly, there's frequently no reasoning with these people.

Anti-vaxxers are notoriously stubborn, and attempts at educating them have been known to fall upon deaf ears in the past.

So, of course...

Any opportunity to roast an anti-vaxxer over the internet is taken with the utmost enthusiasm.

But this week, one doctor took his roasting to the next level.

While on the topic of people refusing to take the new COVID-19 vaccine, German geneticist, Wolfram Henn, had some stern words.

On one hand, plenty agreed with what the doctor had to say...

However, many found the doctor's words to be "unprofessional" and "unethical."

Here's what he said.

Speaking to German newspaper Bild, Dr. Henn explained: "Whoever wants to refuse the vaccination outright, he should, please also always carry a document with the inscription, 'I don't want to be vaccinated! I want to leave the protection against the disease to others! I want, if I get sick, to leave my intensive care bed and ventilator to others.'"

He added that it is perfectly fine for people to have concerns about a vaccine that has come around seemingly so fast...

And stressed that he doesn't mind if there are those out there who have critical, well-researched issues that they wish to get answered.

He added:

"I urgently recommend that these alarmists go to the nearest hospital and present their conspiracy theories to the doctors and nurses who have just come from the overcrowded intensive care unit completely exhausted."

What do you think?

Was Dr. Henn being reasonable? Or have his ethics been completely thrown out of the window? For more on anti-vaxxers, keep scrolling...
