“He needs an emergency surgery, and his heart is under pressure every day that surgery is delayed,” Emir said, referring to one of his doctors.
Baby W’s parents, Cole Reeves and Samantha Savage, had insisted that the baby could only be operated on if the blood used in the surgery came in. Doctors from unvaccinated donors said using donated blood from outside the normal channels is “impractical” for this condition and that performing the surgery without donated blood “is not an available option”.
With the passing of time and While the parents still objected, Judge Ian Gault ruled that it was “in Baby W’s best interest” for the court to take temporary custody until the surgery was complete.
Baby W was placed in court custody from Wednesday until she recovered from surgery, but no later than the end of January. The surgery, scheduled for Friday morning, is expected to take 48 hours. Two doctors were appointed as Baby W’s legal representatives to authorize the surgery, Reeves and Savage for “all other purposes”. Doctors said they would “take into account the views of parents” whenever possible, as long as it did not jeopardize “Baby W’s interests”.
According to the verdict, the decision came after a tense period of weeks filled with unfounded allegations.
After Baby W underwent a procedure in late October, her parents were “in distress” when they learned she needed to be “stuffed” with blood. In the decision, they demanded that an alternative be found in the future, as they did not want their children to be given “any blood other than blood that does not contain the Pfizer vaccine, mRNA, spike protein, or other relevant contaminants.” .
Reeves and Savage later told health workers at Starship Children’s Hospital in Auckland that they believed spike proteins in the blood of people who had received mRNA vaccines, such as Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines, “caused unexpected transfusion-related deaths.” “
According to the order, a November meeting between Baby W’s parents and doctors was “abducted by a parent’s support officer” who “vomited” his theory about conspiracies. The person claimed babies who have Had a blood transfusion at Starship hospital.
Two days ago, doctors met with Savage and said they “wouldn’t have any more time to think” about Baby W’s requests for blood collection from private donors. parent He must decide whether to allow surgery. Savage was “extremely upset” by the order and accused doctors of “cornering him without any support”.
Judge Gault said in a court filing Thursday evening that Reeves and Savage also thwarted medical staff’s efforts to prepare Baby W for surgery. According to the file, they told the staff, “If you touch our child, we will file a criminal complaint against you.”
In the dossier, Gault wrote that parents’ representative, Sue Gray, submitted medical comments to court from doctors in Texas and Hawaii who had “closely” evaluated Baby W via Zoom video call, arguing that “this is not an emergency.” and that surgery should be delayed for a week to “further evaluate other options.”
“It was common view before that Baby W should have surgery,” but now parents were objecting to the surgery and the preparations, not just the use of blood transfusions, Gault wrote. The development has made it “clearly necessary” for parents to order non-interference, he said.

“From a godly point of view, we don’t think that’s true.”
Gray, who has declared himself an expert on medical marijuana and “biological harm from electromagnetic radiation,” did not respond to a request for comment. there is gray known to spread false claims, especially about coronavirus vaccines. HE said CNN said Thursday before Gault’s application that Reeves and Savage, after “hours” of deliberation, concluded “there is no time to object”, adding that “the family’s priority is to have a peaceful time with their baby.” supporting him throughout the operation and operation.”
Nikki Turner, medical director of the Vaccine Advisory Center at the University of Auckland, said in her statement on the case that any component of the vaccine is unlikely to be found in donated blood and would not be harmful no matter what.
