(The Post Millennial) – Twitter has censored a post showing an obituary for a mother who died after suffering from “COVID Vaccine-Induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia.” Jessica Berg Wilson reportedly did not want to get vaccinated but did so in order to be participate as a “Room Mom” at her young daughters’ school.
Twitter tagged the post about Wilson’s death, and her cause of death, as “Misleading,” and provided links to “Learn why health officials consider COVID-19 vaccines safe for most people.” The tweet “can’t be replied to, shared, or liked.”
Clicking the links provided by Twitter brings users to Twitter’s information showing that Reuters has reported that “Scientists and public health experts say that vaccines are safe for most people.”
The obituary for the 37-year-old mom, published in Oregon Live, said that Wilson “passed away unexpectedly Sept. 7, 2021 from COVID-19 Vaccine-Induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VITT) surrounded by her loving family.”
Wilson was “an exceptionally healthy and vibrant 37-year-old young mother with no underlying health conditions,” Oregon Live reports. Her daughters are ages 5 and 3.
“She had been vehemently opposed to taking the vaccine,” Wilson’s obituary reads, “knowing she was in good health and of a young age and thus not at risk for serious illness. In her mind, the known and unknown risks of the unproven vaccine were more of a threat. But, slowly, day by day, her freedom to choose was stripped away.”
Wilson eventually got vaccinated in order to be a “Room Mom” at her children’s school, but she was unable to take on this role unless she also took the vaccine, which she did. She passed on Sept. 7, 2021, and was from Seattle, Wash.
Washington State Governor Jay Inslee announced in August that state employees would be required to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
This included workers in private health and long-term care settings, as well as contractors. Inslee mandated vaccinations for those all those working in K-12, childcare, and higher education on Aug. 18. All employees who would need to be vaccinated had to get the first shot of a double-dose vaccine by Sept. 6 to meet the Oct. 18 deadline for full vaccination.
