Stand Up for Medical Liberty

Campaign Created by: Kristin Kerlin

The funds from this campaign will be received by Kristin Kerlin.

Goal : USD $80,000
Raised : USD $ 44,745

Friends in Aiken, this campaign is to help fund expenses in the fight to keep our medical and religious freedoms at the risk of our jobs. Savannah River Nuclear Sloutions instituted a mandatory Covid-19 policy in September of 2021.  They did this even before the Biden administration wrote their executive order. After summarily denying all religious exemptions due to the undue burden it would put on SRNS, on October 14 and 15 all employees who had not taken the shot had their badges and devices confiscated and were escorted off-site.  Some were forced into early retirement and the rest were put on unpaid "leave", with or without their permission.  They were told they would be terminated on November 30, 2021.  That date has come and gone, with no action from SRNS.  This lawsuit is led by almost 100 plaintiffs, Lawyer Don Brown, Aiken Citizens for Freedom, and the community of Aiken that believes in medical freedom for all.  The lawsuit desires to strike down SRNS's Vaccine mandate and to declare ANY vaccine mandate illegal via the illegal practicing of medicine by corporations.  When successful, this ruling would apply to any private company - not just those affected by the Biden vaccine mandate.

Despite the many rulings around the country putting halts on "vaccine" mandates, Judge Childs, once again, denied any type of injunction today. SRNS employees, who chose health freedom, have taken early retirement at a loss for them, resigned, or are on unpaid leave, with SRNS refusing to terminate, so they cannot get unemplioyment. This means that this lawsuit will head to the 4th circuit appeals court to be decided. Please help us continue to fund this lawsuit, which if decided in our favor, will stop ALL mandates in SC, not just those by EO.

Federal Judge Childs ruled Friday 3rd AGAINST our request for an immediate injunction.  She has yet to rule on the SRNS motion to dismiss.  After meeting with Don and interested parties at the Barn on 12-7, we have decided, by huge majority, to proceed with the case and appeal to the 4th circuit.  As many of you know, on Tuesday the 7th, a federal judge in Georgia ruled to quash the entire mandate across the country.  What does that mean for us?  We honestly have no idea yet!  Even though SRNS is contracted by DOE, they are still a private company and can "attempt" to do what they like.  We will keep fighting this front until it is COMPLETELY over!  This is not a stand we can choose not to take, for those of us involved, and for our children.  Thank you to everyone who has and will financially support this cause!  The legal process is slow, tedious, and expensive, but our God-given freedom to determine what goes into our own bodies is worth every bit of it.  It's sad that we are even in a place in which we have to fight this fight, but we will continue to do so with all of the passion our freedoms deserve!

Update on the SRNS Lawsuit:
Don filed several motions/rebuttals/etc. last week. The judge has put a rush on holding a preliminary hearing. The hearing will be held November 30 at 11:00 AM. It will be at the federal courthouse in Columbia. Don does not necessarily need anyone there, he's not calling witnesses. However, it may Update on the SRNS Lawsuit:

Don filed several motions/rebuttals/etc. last week. The judge has put a rush on holding a preliminary hearing. The hearing will be held November 30 at 11:00 AM. It will be at the federal courthouse in Columbia. Don does not necessarily need anyone there, he's not calling witnesses. However, it may look good if as many of you and your friends can, go and sit behind him so the judge can see your/our presence.

In the meantime, SRNS has to have something filed in response to Don's by end of day tomorrow. So they are not going to be happy about that rush. Then Don has to have something filed by Monday, before the hearing. I'm not sure of all the legal stuff, just that both sides will be very busy for the next week.

The ways the judge could rule (keep in mind she is an Obama appointee):

*She could put an immediate temporary injunction on the mandate. (least likely)
*She could let the mandate stand and still agree to hear the case.
*She could dismiss altogether (which we would like to appeal, if we have the money)

No matter which way she rules, WE, as a community, have to make a decision as to whether to continue the suit. We have given Don $46,000 so far, but we need more to move on. The bank account is almost empty. I realize many of you have given money, not just the plaintiffs. But the suit can only go on if it can be funded. So, please pray on it, discuss it with family and friends. Contact those others who have been let go who aren't on the suit. A positive ruling will affect them as well. A positive ruling will affect all of SC workers and possibly workers all over the country. Put out there any ideas you have for funding.
You've seen positive things happen in other cases across the country. Even our own 5th circuit has ruled to stop the mandate until it's heard in court. We have a very strong case and have the potential of making a national impact.

Sorry I've been slow to update!  The lawsuit has been filed.  SRNS immediately moved it to federal court, then made a motion to have it dismissed.  We will be filing this week a rebuttal.  Please pray that it doesn't get dismissed and that we can get it back to state court, where it rightfully should be tried.  SRNS' main goal is to run us out of money.  You guys have been amazing at stepping up financially!  And I hate begging, but that's where we are.  Please get the doantion site out to every social media platform you are on.  We cannot let Goliath win!  If we win this, it will set precedent in our state and across the country!
