Medical persecution bill passes California Senate - Analysis

A California bill that would allow the California Medical Board to punish medical professionals who openly disagree with government health authorities successfully passed the State Senate Monday and awaits Governor Gavin Newsom’s signature, reported America's Frontline News.  

AB-2098 charges the California Medical Board (CMB) with punishing healthcare professionals who “disseminate medical misinformation” in the form of treatment or advice.  

Sponsored by Assemblyman Evan Low, the legislation cites the mainstream media as evidence that criticism of the COVID-19 injections is “misinformation”. 

"Major news outlets have reported that some of the most dangerous propagators of inaccurate information regarding the COVID-19 vaccines are licensed health care professionals,” reads the bill. 

Also included in the legislation are statements which have raised concerns among medical professionals for being disinformation.  

The Legislature finds and declares all of the following:  

(a) The global spread of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, or COVID-19, has claimed the lives of over 6,000,000 people worldwide, including nearly 90,000 Californians.  

(b) Data from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that unvaccinated individuals are at a risk of dying from COVID-19 that is 11 times greater than those who are fully vaccinated.  

(c) The safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines have been confirmed through evaluation by the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the vaccines continue to undergo intensive safety monitoring by the CDC.

The bill comes even as the CDC this month removed any distinction in its guidance between the vaccinated and unvaccinated. 

According to Dr. Aaron Kheriaty, MD, the bill's statements are “demonstrably false”.  

Regarding the bill’s first claim, he says in his Substack newsletter, those death count figures "are grossly overestimated by hospitals failing to distinguish dying from COVID vs. dying with COVID and the financial incentives from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to overestimate COVID deaths.”  

As for claim b, “the efficacy of vaccines has declined with time and new variants, so the statistic cited here is no longer true of the vaccines against omicron.”  

Dr. Kheriaty then points out that the CDC’s “intensive safety monitoring” never happened, as reported by America’s Frontline News.    

“The CDC has consistently failed to follow-up on serious safety signals, apart from myocarditis, and the post-marketing surveillance data acquired from our FOIA request showed serious safety issues in the first three months of vaccine rollout,” said the physician.  

"The supposed scientific ‘facts’ mentioned in the bill make it clear just what information will be considered ‘misinformation’ under this law,” Dr. Kheriaty added. “This bill will spell the end of scientific integrity and medical freedom in California.”  

Neither the bill’s authors, nor the major news outlets they trust, nor the California Medical Board are headed by medical experts. But the California State Assembly has found a willing executioner in CMB head Kristina Lawson, an attorney with no medical background. 

As reported by America’s Frontline News, Lawson has been rabidly against medical dissent – even deputizing California citizens to inform on physicians for “COVID-19 misinformation” – while remaining alarmingly forgiving toward physicians who sexually assault their patients.  

According to a Los Angeles Times report, “. . . 10 of the 17 physicians who lost their licenses for sexual misconduct and petitioned for reinstatement since 2013 succeeded, board data show — a rate of 59%.”  

Civil rights organization America's Frontline Doctors confronted Lawson as part of its docuseries Doc Tracy: Physician Investigator

A group of physicians is currently suing the CMB after the board opened an investigation into Dr. Douglas Mackenzie, reported America’s Frontline News. Dr. Mackenzie made remarks critical of the COVID vaccines during a Zoom meeting last year with the Santa Barbara School District. 

Six days after the lawsuit was filed, the CMB dropped its investigation against Dr. Mackenzie.  

However, a dropped investigation made the complaint moot and unnecessary – so on July 29, 2022, Jaffee filed an amended complaint involving medical rights activist group Physicians for Informed Consent.  

The amended complaint included meeting minutes from a board meeting in February, in which CMB President Kristina Lawson, who also has no medical experience, announced the CMB would be targeting physicians who speak out against the government’s response to COVID-19:  

Ms. Lawson stated it is the duty of the board to protect the public from misinformation and disinformation by physicians, noting the increase in the dissemination of healthcare related misinformation and disinformation on social media platforms, in the media, and online, putting patient lives at risk in causing unnecessary strain on the healthcare system.  

Ms. Lawson elaborated in July 2021, the Federation of State Medical Boards released a statement saying physicians spreading misinformation or disinformation risk disciplinary action by their state medical board.
