All three plaintiffs in the suit alleged the agency’s widespread and public attack on ivermectin caused them to be ‘pressured, unable to prescribe medication, and threatened with or subjected to professional discipline’

The battle over proper treatment for COVID-19 and the security of the doctor-patient relationship continued on Sept. 30 as the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS), a national organization representing physicians in all specialties since 1943, filed a motion and amicus brief in support of the physicians who sued the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) earlier this year. 

As previously reported, three physicians with outstanding credentials and track records for treating patients with COVID-19, including an emergency medicine doctor licensed in the state of Washington, filed a lawsuit against the FDA on June 2, 2022, for the agency’s deliberate interference with their ability to practice medicine, explicitly concerning the off-label use of ivermectin to treat COVID-19. 

All three plaintiffs in the suit alleged the agency’s widespread and public attack on ivermectin caused them to be “pressured, unable to prescribe medication, and threatened with or subjected to professional discipline.” 

Pharmacists refused to fill their prescriptions for critically ill patients and denied it when early treatment was paramount. Hospital employers forced resignations. And medical licenses were suspended. 

Now, the AAPS, whose motto is omnia pro aegroto, meaning “everything for the patient,” has provided the federal district court in Galveston, Texas, a thorough defense of off-label use of drugs in patient care, calling such behavior “absolutely necessary” to the practice of effective medicine. 

Their brief highlights previous U.S. Supreme Court rulings that recognize “off-label use is widespread in the medical community and often is essential to giving patients optimal medical care, both of which medical ethics, FDA, and most courts recognize.” 

“Ivermectin has long been a medication fully approved as safe for humans,” the AAPS motion reads. “The drug is safe. It is solely within the authority of physicians to prescribe approved-as-safe drugs for new uses.” 

According to the AAPS, “The FDA’s unauthorized and unjustified disparagement of physicians prescribing ivermectin has wrongfully influenced multiple courts and state medical boards,” including physicians belonging to their organization. 

Much like the plaintiffs in the case, numerous AAPS members have been treating COVID-19 patients since early 2020 and can attest that the FDA’s actions have caused real harm to physicians and their patients. 

They conclude, “Defendant FDA lacks both the authority and the expertise to practice medicine, interfere with the practice of medicine, guide the practice of medicine, or advise about the practice of medicine. Federal law is clear about this, and common sense reinforces it. FDA employees are not practicing physicians and are not treating patients. FDA employees, for the most part, are not even licensed physicians.” 

The AAPS is an organization whose previous amicus briefs have been cited in multiple court decisions and even relied upon by the U.S. Supreme Court in high-profile cases. Their fervent dedication to preserving the sanctity of the patient-physician relationship and protecting it from unlawful government interference led them to file this most recent brief objecting to the FDA’s overreach.

Let us see where this goes. I do pray the doctors win and yet another evil is exposed.

Of course, there’s been no coverage whatsoever about this in the mainstream media (msm). Wanna bet it’ll never see the light of day in msn?

Of course big-pharma will bury this!

Let us all wish these brave people the very best, and pray that they will win!
Thank you all for leading by example.

MSM, bigpharma, and their cohorts will continue these shenanigans to benefit themselves whilst causing major chaos and destruction everywhere else.
Whingeing, complaining etc will only pit the victims against each other. That is exactly the goal of the evil doers: divide and conquer. Don’t allow it.
The only way to put an end to this evil is for us to unite, despite our myriad differences, and keep saying STOP.

Actions like this signal ever stronger rejection of attempts to take away Americans’ rights through the fake scam-plandemic. US, a democratic country (?), surpasses most autocratic nations in imposing coercive control. Those autocratic nations do not hide their rule of law under the banner of democracy!
Lawsuits against the recent Californian law that punishes doctors for ‘misinformation’. See below:

https://default.salsalabs.org/T306dbca8-4410-4d94-9486-92461caadc96/1f3f68f1-1e32-4c05-aaa5-2940af3c4f91

Remdesivir aka (RunDeathIsNear) was briefly used against Ebola, and then withdrawn due to a 57% mortality rate. It has reappeared, currently repurposed for Covid. Yes, it is very expensive!
There are current lawsuits against the injuries and/or deaths caused by the mandated use of Remdesivir. See below:

https://default.salsalabs.org/T017c496a-17d8-4d06-ab8e-e8d25e31a4b2/1f3f68f1-1e32-4c05-aaa5-2940af3c4f91

Despite the damage caused by Remdesivir, it is still being forced in hospitals on patients as if they have no rights as to what treatments are given. Surely that is a violation of human rights.
Ivermectin, which is proven safe and effective, is banned in hospitals in most States. Why? It is low-cost, affordable!

To put an end to these self-serving mandates, we all must put aside our many differences and unite in what is our common cause – let’s say STOP, and let’s take back our rightful RIGHTS.

Here’s yet another physician being subjected to deregistration and the now too familiar deplatforming due to Covid “disobedience”!!!!
The case is ongoing, with the next court session on 25 October 2022:

Dr Nass summarizes the first hearing, then follows up with another physician, deregistered for the same reasons, who has since built a new career.

Dr Nass is highly credentialled, has extensive knowledge of Anthrax (yes, that very same one), worked in bioweapons projects, and is very well respected. Perhaps those are the very reasons why the authorities zeroed in on her to use as an example to the medical profession.

“Why isn’t your doctor warning you about this?”
Here’s some of the many reasons:

These coercive controls will continue to exacerbate in frequency and intensity unless we, the people, collectively say NO MORE.

More lawsuits against those who use coercive control to take away our rights in order to satisfy their addiction to riches and power.

Increasingly Americans are standing up for their rights. Let’s join together to safeguard our Democracy and Bill of Rights.

Another sign that the tide is turning? During the height of the scam plandemic, this article would have been classified as disinformation.

The truth will be vindicated.
