To Whom It May Concern:
I write this letter to explain the reasoning behind my refusal to comply with the protocols and guidelines set forth by the Veterans Administration in performing my duties as a Registered Nurse as it pertains to coronavirus disease of 2019 (COVID-19). This letter will provide insight to my position, as well as solutions that I believe to be reasonable and appropriate actions. Actions that, I believe and hope you will agree, provide improved patient outcomes and the best possible solution to defeat COVID-19.
As an employee of the Fayetteville VA, I have placed the safety and wellbeing of my patients and coworkers often ahead of my own. In times of active shooters or mental health crisis’s I never questioned doing the right thing to protect those around me and at this time, I feel that my actions are needed to ensure that we do the right thing for our families, patients, and peers.
Merriam-Webster’s definition of terror, terrorism, and coerce are as follows:
#1: Terror (noun):
- A state of intense and overwhelming fear. Violence or the threat of violence used as a weapon. A very frightening or terrifying aspect
#2: Terrorism (noun):
- The systematic use of terror, especially as a means of coercion
#3: Coerce (transitive verb):
- To compel to an act or choice. To achieve by force or threat. To restrain or dominate by force.
Based on the definitions provided above, I believe that by complying with the COVID-19 guidelines set forth by the Veteran Administration I would be participating in terrorism. The guidelines set forth, create an environment of fear or terror through faulty PCR testing, withholding of or limiting prophylactic or early treatment, the use of harmful medications for inpatient treatment and vaccine mandates to compel or coerce the population into taking an experimental vaccination. This is a violation of the Nuremburg Code, and I believe it to be terrorism.
I believe that by participating in the COVID-19 protocols, I will be intentionally doing harm to those individuals who will be placed in my care, and it will prevent me from practicing a primary duty of advocating for my patients. It is my belief that by forcing my coworkers and I to participate in the COVID-19 protocols, the Veterans Administration is in direct violation of Title 18 US code 373, Solicitation to commit a crime of violence (The United States Department of Justice, 2020 1081. Overview of Solicitation | JM | Department of Justice).
