Medical Associations Back Stripping Licenses from Doctors Who Warn Against COVID-19 Jabs
(by Jack Bingham | LifeSite News) – Three professional medical associations have backed a bid to strip doctors who speak out against the novel COVID-19 inoculations of their ability to practice medicine.
On Thursday, September 9, the American Board of Pediatrics, the American Board of Family Medicine, and the American Board of Internal Medicine released a joint statement supporting the Federation of State Medical Boards’ (FSMB) July 29 decision that all boards should revoke or suspend the license and certification of doctors who question the safety of the experimental COVID-19 jabs.
“We at the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM), the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM), and the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) support FSMB’s position. We also want all physicians certified by our Boards to know that such unethical or unprofessional conduct may prompt their respective Board to take action that could put their certification at risk,” the three boards wrote in their statement.
The Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) – a national organization representing all American medical boards that license and discipline physicians, including the ABFM, ABIM, and ABP, released their now supported position in a statement published on July 29.
“Physicians who generate and spread COVID-19 vaccine misinformation or disinformation are risking disciplinary action by state medical boards, including the suspension or revocation of their medical license,” reads the FSMB’s release.
“Due to their specialized knowledge and training, licensed physicians possess a high degree of public trust and therefore have a powerful platform in society, whether they recognize it or not. They also have an ethical and professional responsibility to practice medicine in the best interests of their patients and must share information that is factual, scientifically grounded and consensus-driven for the betterment of public health,” they added.
According to the FSMB the new disciplinary directives are necessary because of the “dramatic increase” of physicians disseminating “COVID-19 vaccine misinformation.”
“Consensus-driven” science, as mentioned in the statement, is at odds with the scientific method, which encourages debate and dissenting evidence as a way of discovering objective scientific truth. Read Full Article >
