Husband Has to Sue for Right to Touch Wife

Kept apart since last spring

A New Mexico man fought the law for the right to touch his wife, and he appears to have won. A state judge ruled to change a health order that has forced the couple apart during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The story of Gary Hein and Ann Severine is one of love, isolation, loneliness and a pandemic. The couple of more than three decades lives in the same care facility in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Hein in independent living and Severine in memory care.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Hein would visit his wife multiple times per day, comforting and caring for her.

“I know that if the tables were turned, she would be caring for me. She is the best thing that’s ever happened to me in my life,” he said.

But then, this spring, a state health order kicked in that meant the two were no longer allowed to touch each other.

“It is a loss. Her isolation, and my isolation run in parallel,” Hein said.

The loving husband took part in a lawsuit in which he claimed his constitutional rights were violated and both his health and that of his wife had declined. He said nursing home staff, even employees who had been exposed to COVID-19, were allowed near her, but he wasn’t, even though he’s repeatedly been tested for the virus.

A state judge sided with Hein, saying New Mexico’s current health order is too broad. The state has three weeks to get back to the judge with changes or continue to fight it in court.

A spokesman for the state Department of Health said the case is still ongoing and would not comment.

I’ll assume you’re Russian and still live there. Any semblance of globalist leanings within Russia?

That this “care facility” is spending money for legal expenses rather than care expenses tells a story there.

All health facilities whether they be these care facilities or hospitals are sucking off the taxpayer tit by sars2 diagnosis and treatment.

The evidence of this entire fiasco of sars 2 points to it being made up for econo-enviro-fascists and closet Caesars.

I am not a medical expert by any means BUT I know a con when I see one and this magic virus is a 100% USDA Certified Grade A Con. In the beginning I could understand maskholes missing it but by now they have made the con crystal clear enough for a child and yet the maskholes still ignore it. Now the lawyers are getting a little of the action as is shown by this article.

Maybe they’ll send him to Silver City for a forced colonoscopy next.

This is why you never subject yourself to “health care professionals.”

What a wretched sty this has become. I’m quite certain the Central Bank gang laughs themselves asleep each night.

Head of British Psychological Warfare Executive (Propaganda), Victor
Cavendish-Bentick in a handwritten note, wrote on Aug 27th, 1943, “We have had a good run for our money with this gas chamber story we have been putting about, but don’t we run the risk eventually we are going to be found out and when we are found out the collapse of that lie is going to bring the whole of our psychological warfare down with it? So isn’t it rather time now to let it drift off by itself and concentrate on other lines that we are running.”

Public Record Office Document F0371/34551 revealed by Stephen Mitford Goodson, ‘Inside the South African Reserve Bank’.
