“‘Emergencies’ have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberty have been eroded—and once they are suspended it is not difficult for anyone who has assumed such emergency powers to see to it that the emergency will persist.”—F.A. Hayek
As previously reported, Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis was given a test this week by his own party which presented him Senate Bill 7014, a bill extending legal protection through June 1 of 2023 to healthcare providers who follow Centers for Disease Control (CDC) dictates.
DeSantis failed that test signing the bill on Thursday.
The bill means that healthcare providers can enforce the CDC’s treatment advice with deadly experiments like Remdesivir, or run-death-is-near, and ignoring the medical wishes of patients, as noted by medical freedom groups who wrote a letter to DeSantis telling him to veto the bill.
The letter stated that “,,,what has happened – on countless occasions – and will continue to happen in Florida if this law is adopted, is that Floridians are being denied treatment, checked into hospitals and cut-off from their loved ones and medical decision makers. At that point the patient loses control and the hospital uses the protocols they decide in many cases not even following the patient’s care decisions.”
The bill also provided fodder for the COVID fear pushes to say this is evidence that the “pandemic,” which never was, is still ongoing as seen in this clearly leftist report from Florida Politics: “The bill is a tacit acknowledgment that the COVID-19 pandemic remains an ongoing concern even as legislators and DeSantis have pushed laws and policies designed to keep businesses and local governments from imposing mandates and lockdowns.”
Along with that letter from health freedom groups, Margaret Anna Alice wrote a letter to DeSantis urging him to veto the bill prior to him signing it.
“Now you have a compelling opportunity to demonstrate you aren’t owned by the pharmaceutical-medical complex—as distinguished from your colleagues; mainstream media; Big Tech; compromised scientists and medical professionals; and captured agencies,” Allice wrote.
Alice added: “You can strip the health-scare system of financial immunity from the harm it inflicts on its victims and their families. You can bring comfort to those who have been irreparably injured and bereaved by corporate fraud, criminal negligence, and medical liquidation. You can choose to protect human rights and lives rather than caving in to political and corporate pressures.”
Unfortunately, DeSantis gave immunity to Big Pharma and the Medical Industrial Complex rather than standing on principles.
