They only have themselves to blame, the Make-A-Wish Foundation is in hot water.
The Make-A-Wish foundation famously creates “life changing wishes for children with critical illnesses” is now snubbing thermally ill children and their families if they are not vaccinated.
Keep in mind a lot of these children are medically compromised and may not be eligible to receive the vaccination is they chose to get it.
The announcement was made by Make-A-Wish president and CEO Richard Davis in a now viral video.
“Over the past year, we spent each day at Make-A-Wish preparing for the moment when every possible wish could possibly move forward,” Davis states in the video clip. “We’ve approached this responsibility with a focus and diligence for your family’s health and safety.”
“Now we’ve consulted with doctors and medical professionals throughout the National Medical Advisory Council. We’ve been monitoring public health organizations like the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics,” he says.
Davis announced that the foundation will “resume granting air-travel wishes within the United States and its territories, as well as granting wishes involving large gatherings for vaccinated wish families, as soon as Sept. 15, 2021. All wish participants, including your wish kid and any siblings, will need to be two weeks past completion of either a one-dose or a two-dose vaccine.”
This is literally a new low for humanity. Terminally ill children will not be granted a wish.. from the make a wish foundation… unless.. you guessed it.. they’re fully vaccinated. pic.twitter.com/bjx1XMvLu6

The video did not go over well, people were furious calling the decision “utterly vile.”
After the backlash the foundation recently released a statement reversing their decision:
“We understand that there are many families whose children aren’t eligible for the vaccine yet, and we also know that there are families who are choosing to not get the vaccine,” the statement also read. “We respect everyone’s freedom of choice. Make-a-Wish will continue to grant wishes for all eligible children.”
There is no way Davis consulted with doctors like he claimed. No doctor is going to mandate giving medically fragile children an experimental vaccine.
