In Arkansas, employees at Conway Regional Hospital must “affirm” their conscience objections to abortion-tainted, experimental COVID vaccines. They can do so by vowing to avoid more than 30 medications and vaccines with claimed connections to fetal cell lines.

CEO and President of Conway Regional Matt Troup said since Conway Regional Health System announced a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for workers in July, about 5% of employees have requested religious or medical exemptions, LifeSiteNews reported.

Matt Troup told Little Rock-based news station KARK that the hospital has seen an increase in religious exemptions to the COVID-19 vaccine, with the majority of them claiming a concern about fetal cells. In response, the hospital created a form requiring workers to attest that they do not use any medications, prescription or otherwise, or vaccines that were developed using fetal cells or risk losing their jobs.

“The intent of the religious attestation form is twofold: to ensure staff requesting exemption are sincere in their beliefs” and “educate staff” about the use of fetal cells in drug testing and development.

“Based on your religious exemption request, we ask that you complete the below attestation,” the form, dated Sept. 3, states. “This will help to validate your understanding of the ubiquity of fetal cell use in the testing and development of common medicines and consumer products and support your claim of a ‘sincerely held belief.’”

Tylenol, Pepto Bismol, Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Ex-Lax, Benadryl and Claritin were among the more than 30 items listed on the form. However, the hospital admitted that it was not a complete list, and staff had to guarantee that they did not use fetal cells in any of their products.

Employees must “truthfully acknowledge and affirm” that their religious beliefs are “consistent and true” and that they “do not use or will use any of the medications listed as examples or any other medication … that has used fetal cell lines in their development and/or testing,” the form continues.

According to the attestation form, those who are exempt from the hospital system’s vaccine mandate must comply with other strict requirements, such as frequent COVID-19 testing, and may be moved to a different post due to their vaccination status.

The vaccination deadline for Conway Regional employees is Oct. 8.

In addition to connections to abortion, COVID-19 vaccines have proven increasingly ineffectual in preventing death, hospitalization, and transmission. In nations with high vaccination rates, such as Israel, the “fully vaccinated” who have contracted the virus have overwhelmed hospitals recently as the coronavirus Delta variant has spread.

At the same time, mandatory COVID-19 vaccine has resulted in severe staffing shortages at medical facilities across the country, with some hospitals risking closure as employees resist mandatory vaccination, according to Becker’s Hospital Review.
