(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- A group of doctors sued the Biden administration, claiming it illegally blocked their ability to prescribe ivermectin for COVID-19 treatment.
It names HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra, FDA Commissioner Robert M. Califf, and FDA as defendants.
Plaintiffs Mary Talley Bowden, Paul E. Marik, and Robert L. Apter argued that by ordering health professionals and patients to avoid ivermectin, the FDA overstepped its authority and hindered the doctors’ ability to practice medicine.
The lawsuit stated that attempts by the FDA to influence or intervene in the doctor-patient relationship amount to interference with medicine. The FDA breached this critical boundary between federal and state authorities by directing the public, including health professionals and patients, not to use ivermectin to treat COVID-19.
The filing emphasizes that the case is not about ivermectin’s efficacy in treating COVID-19 but rather who determines the appropriate treatment for each patient and whether the FDA can interfere with that process.
Dr. Bowden said she had one mission since the pandemic: to save patients. She provided testing when it was scarce. She said he kept 3,900 patients out of the hospital.
Houston Methodist Hospital chastised Bowden, and they forced her to resign her privileges because of her ivermectin recommendations. Bowden treated over 3,900 patients for COVID-19 “with a success rate over 99.97%,” the lawsuit said.
She said that fighting the system has been more challenging than fighting the disease. Despite my success in treating COVID patients, the FDA’s smear campaign against ivermectin is a daily hurdle. I’m fighting back because the FDA’s actions are illegal, and I hope this lawsuit will stop them from interfering in doctor-patient relationships.
The lawsuit cites FDA warnings against using ivermectin, including an August 2021 tweet saying, “You are not a horse.” No cow here. Y’all. “Stop!”
The lawsuit said this isn’t the first or last pandemic the country has faced. COVID-19 won’t disappear. If the FDA isn’t limited, its illegal actions will persist and repeat.
Suppose the FDA is allowed to interfere with the practice of medicine now under the cover of a pandemic. In that case, this interference will metastasize to other circumstances, destroying the carefully constructed statutory wall between federal and state regulatory powers.
Marik said that the agency felt compelled to discourage using ivermectin as a front-line treatment for COVID-19, and this ignores statutory limits on the FDA’s authority and scientific evidence from peer-reviewed research, over 60 medical trials, and ivermectin’s use in medical settings worldwide showing the drug’s safe and effective use in fighting COVID-19.
