A growing number of doctors have threatened to withhold treatment from the unvaccinated,..👇1/

2/ “…sparking backlash from doctors and bioethicists who say such sentiments violate the Hippocratic Oath. Those critics are even more troubled by the silence from professional organizations tasked with upholding medical ethics.
3/ “ Doctors in Tennessee, Florida, and Alabama have announced they will refuse to treat unvaccinated patients, while Dallas hospital workers reportedly discussed considering vaccinated status when delegating ICU beds.

Such comments have infuriated top medical professionals.
4/ “ Dr. Brian Callister, governor of the Nevada chapter of the American College for Physicians, said doctors should never blatantly refuse to treat unvaccinated patients who are otherwise willing to comply with the rules set out by the practice.
5/ “ "It is absolutely unethical, period, end of story, to not treat a patient in need,"

Callister told the Washington Free Beacon. "It is absurd and amoral for any physician to say they will not treat unvaccinated patients."
6/ “ Callister has served as the state chairman of the American Medical Association, the largest doctors lobby in the country. The group sets the standard for not only medical professionals and ethics, but also shapes public policy as a resource for lawmakers and regulators.
7/ While the AMA has publicly supported vaccine mandates,it has remained silent on the public campaign to refuse treatment to people based on vaccination status. An AMA spokesman declined to address the issue, though he did refer a webpage outlining reasons for refusing patients.
8/ “ The simple fact is unless a significant percentage of our population is vaccinated against COVID-19—we could be stuck fighting this virus for many more months or even years to come," Gerald Harmon, president of AMA, said in a statement.
“ 9/ Now is the time for the public and private sectors to come together, listen to the science, and mandate vaccination."

AMA has more than 200,000 members, representing roughly ONE SIXTH of all physicians in the country.

It represented three-fourths of physicians in 1975..
10/ “.. then saw a sharp decline in membership in the coming decades.

The organization spends roughly $20 million on lobbying annually, according to the Center for Responsible Politics.
11/ “Michael Shapiro, a retired professor at the USC Gould School of Law who focused on ethical medical treatment, criticized AMA for not speaking out on a key matter of medical ethics. He said the organization's stance leaves open questions as to whether vaccination status..
12/ “.. is a justifiable reason for refusing service.

“Such ‘guidelines’ generally serve as matters of show," he told the Free Beacon. "They sound good, but say little."
13/ “The AMA's Code of Medical Ethics Opinion 1.1.2 states that doctors cannot decline services based on infectious disease status, race, gender, or any other characteristics irrelevant to needed care.

Doctors are allowed to deny patients for other reasons so long as they are..
14/ “.. not seeking emergency care.

“Physicians should not decline patients for whom they have accepted a contractual obligation to provide care," the opinion states. "However, physicians are not ethically required to accept all prospective patients.
15/ “ Physicians should be thoughtful in exercising their right to choose whom to serve."

No American president has ever given as divisive a speech as the one in which Biden announced his vaccine mandates (something he denied wanting to impose only nine months ago, in December of 2020).
3/ “ Lincoln, despite the Civil War, a war in which more Americans were killed than in all other American wars combined, called on Americans to have "malice toward none."

Biden, as mean-spirited a president as this country has ever had, has called for malice..
