Anthony Stokes is a 15-year-old kid from Atlanta who currently has an Enlarged Heart and was given 6 months or less to live unless he receives a heart transplant. His Parents were informed that he doesn’t qualify for a transplant because he has been labeled as “Non-Compliant” due to him having past trouble with the law and low grades. The Hospital is saying that “they don’t have any evidence that he would take his medicine or that he would go to his follow-ups,” and this is partly based on that label. 

So they are willing to deny a kid a life-saving procedure because of his test scores? That’s ridiculous to say the least and I can only imagine what this story would be like if it was young white kid. He is only 15 and his past trouble with the law isn’t even that serious, but irregardless of that it shouldn’t have anything to do with the medical care he receives. This is just a prime example of how little America views Black Lives. Please share your thoughts and opinions on this.
