(Tea Party 247) – How much do Democrats hate President Trump? Enough to threaten doctors who try to prescribe or dispense hydroxycholorquine for the coronavirus, which has thus far been successful at treating the illness, simply because the president suggested this information in a briefing meant to update us on the latest information from his taskforce handling the pandemic.
Michigan’s Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is the latest governor to issue warnings to doctors thinking of taking this route to help provide relief for patients suffering from the virus, clearly caring little for the fact this medication might actually save lives.
Welcome to the politicization of a global pandemic.
Here’s more from Gateway Pundit:
Detroit News reported:
If you live in Michigan, and you or a loved one is infected with this potentially lethal disease, you’re out of luck.
Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs literally threatened all doctors and pharmacists in the state who prescribe or dispense hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19.
The agency’s March 24 letter warns physicians and pharmacists of professional consequences for the prescribing of hydroxychloroquine (and chloroquine). Beyond the rational recommendation against hoarding as production of this medication needs to be ramped up, the letter deviates into open threats of “administrative action” against the licenses of doctors that prescribe hydroxychloroquine.
The letter from Whitmer also tells pharmacists to completely disregard orders from any physician that might call for this medication to be used in the treatment of the illness. How sick and twisted is that? It’s okay to force a doctor to go against his religious beliefs and make him or her fill a prescription for an abortive birth control pill, but perfectly acceptable to tell them to ignore doctor’s orders for a potentially life saving medication?
Folks, the left has completely lost their minds over this issue. People are dying right now. Lots of them. Their lives might have been saved had they received hydroxycholorquine to help deal with the illness. Why in the world is it such a big issue to just let people have what has been proven to be helpful?
Even worse, the letter indicates health care providers are “required to report” their fellow physicians who are prescribing these medications. This draconian measure carries ominous Gestapo-like overtones of neighbor reporting neighbor to “authorities.”
Turning physicians and pharmacists against each other during a pandemic? Seriously? What in the world is going on with these people? Listen, it’s an unfortunate thing that the man who swallowed fish bowl cleaner thinking it was medicine died. However, that’s no one’s fault but his own for not doing what the president said and seeking the medication from a doctor.
Stopping this medication from being dispensed to those who could benefit from it is cruel, unethical, and just plain evil. Someone needs to step in and put folks like Whitmer back in her place. If she truly cares about the American people, she needs to let doctors do their jobs and stay out of the way.
