Medical board moves to revoke certification of Dr. Peter McCullough who dared question COVID vaccine narratives
(Natural News) Once again, the left’s takeover of another industry — medicine — is putting political motives over legitimate science, as evidenced by the action a noted medical board is preparing to take against an experienced cardiologist after he questioned the ‘accepted’ narratives regarding the COVID-19 vaccines.
The American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) has informed top cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough that they intend to strip him of his certifications, which will essentially force him into retirement, after claiming he misinformed the public regarding the vaccines, The Epoch Times reports.
The board is moving to revoke his certifications in internal medicine and cardiovascular disease, the outlet said, adding:
The board stated that McCullough’s statements questioning COVID-19 vaccination for healthy people younger than the age of 50 and pointing out that Americans have died after getting a COVID-19 vaccine triggered a review, which led to a recommendation that McCullough’s board certifications be revoked.
The ABIM’s Credentials and Certification Committee found that McCullough had “provided false or inaccurate medical information to the public,” the letter states.
“By casting doubt on the efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines with such seemingly authoritative statements, made in various official forums and widely reported in various media, your statements pose serious concerns for patient safety,” the letter added. “Moreover, they are inimical to the ethics and professionalism standards for board certification.”
The board gave McCollough until Nov. 18 to appeal its decisions. In an email, McCollough told the outlet he is planning to do just that.
“If he appeals, the matter will be considered by a panel designated by the ABIM’s Board of Directors and at least one hearing would be held. The panel could accept the recommendation, rescind it, or impose an alternative punishment,” The Epoch Times reported.
In May, the board noted it was considering potential disciplinary measures after learning that McCullough made “numerous widely reported and disseminated public statements about the purported dangers of, or lack of justification for, Covid-19 vaccines.”
One example cited by the board is the cardiologist’s testimony before a Texas Senate panel on March 10, 2021, in which he said that some people who recovered from the virus have “complete and durable immunity,” and because of that, there was no justifiable rationale to require them to get vaccinated.
He also said during that same appearance that there is “no scientific rationale” for anyone who is otherwise healthy and under the age of 50 to get a jab.
“In a declaration in a court case, meanwhile, McCullough said that more than 18,000 COVID-19 vaccine deaths had been submitted to the U.S.-run Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System and that the number of reported deaths was far above that of all other vaccines combined,” The Epoch Times noted further.
In response, the board claimed that those statements may constitute violations of policy that govern “providing false or inaccurate information to patients or the public is unprofessional and unethical” and could lead to disciplinary actions.
The following month, McCollough responded by listing a point-by-point refutation of claims that he provided false info to the Senate panel in Texas.
“To back up his statements on COVID-19 vaccination, for instance, McCullough referenced data that shows people younger than 50 have a minuscule risk of death after contracting the illness, particularly if they don’t have serious underlying medical conditions,” the outlet added.
“He also noted the availability of COVID-19 treatments, that the COVID-19 vaccine spike protein has been linked to problems such as blood clotting, and that the vaccines have provided poor protection against infection and no protection against transmission,” the report said.
McCollough also noted that he relied on his extensive medical education and experience, as well as a review of the then-available scientific information regarding the vaccine, none of which mattered to the leftists running the medical board.
In America, we have now gotten to a point where narratives outweigh medical data and known science, indicating anew that the collapse of our society is not far away.
