This is in response to Rachel Ramey's Open Forum on July 30, 2021.
She stated, "If Valley Health has no respect for the bodily autonomy of their staff, why should I trust that they will respect mine?"
Rachel, are you willing to support my right to make my own choices for my body? Will you support my decision to have an abortion?
I applaud Valley Health's mandate. They are putting their patients first. Patients cannot always make a choice when they are ill or in an emergent situation. Valley Health is doing what is best for their patients. Where is your outrage that Valley Health nurses have to get an annual flu shot? Where are your statistics about that? Did you research the risks of childhood vaccines before you gave them to your children? Childhood vaccines and flu shots were not politicized. I would be surprised to find out you have a primary care provider as you seem to think you know more than most doctors and scientists. I am comfortable "staying in my lane" and maybe you should as well.
