“CNN medical contributor Dr. Leana Wen suggested Saturday that life needs to be ‘hard’ for Americans who have not received a C0VID-19 vaccine. Unvaccinated people, she fretted, can at the moment go about their lives as normal without any consequence,” reported Fox News yesterday.
In her shocking rant, she suggests that those who do anything other than immediately roll up their sleeve to receive an experimental C0vid vaccine be subjected to twice weekly C0vid testing, loss of employment, and be denied access to education.
Dr. Wen appears to have abandoned the First Principle of Medical Ethics, the Principle of Respect for Autonomy:
“In health care decisions, our respect for the autonomy of the patient would, in common parlance, imply that the patient has the capacity to act intentionally, with understanding, and without controlling influences that would mitigate against a free and voluntary act. This principle is the basis for the practice of ‘informed consent’ in the physician/patient transaction regarding health care, “
and apparently has no regard for the Principles of Informed Consent, the fourth of which states that a patient must voluntarily grant consent to a medical procedure WITHOUT COERCION OR DURESS.
These comments come directly on the heels of the Biden Administration’s announcement last week of their plans to send federal agents door-to-door across the country in what many see as an effort to intimidate and coerce Americans into vaccine compliance, and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Dr. Paul Offit’s claim that there are now two Americas – “There is the vaccinated America and the unvaccinated America, and I think the unvaccinated America is about to pay a price for that.”
“These are things we have long warned about here at Texans for Vaccine Choice,” said TFVC Executive Director Jackie Schlegel, “but to hear these administration officials, these health policy makers, these media talking heads brazenly calling for outright discrimination against ordinary Americans is shocking. Where is this going to lead, and more importantly, where is our state leadership in all of this?”
