In an astounding reversal, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has suddenly acknowledged that doctors are indeed allowed to prescribe Ivermectin for the treatment of COVID-19.
Yes, you read that correctly.
Throughout the course of the COVID-19 plandemic, the FDA had consistently employed every possible measure to prevent medical practitioners from using the antiviral for COVID-19 treatment.
The agency, rotten with corruption, even went so far as to compare individuals in search of ivermectin to horses.
The agency maintained an official website headlined, “Why You Should Not Use Ivermectin to Treat or Prevent COVID-19.”
The federal government, mainstream media, Big Tech, and pharmaceutical companies created multiple obstacles to hinder COVID-19 patients from accessing ivermectin for treatment.
Following a wave of Americans lining up for the experimental COVID-19 vaccines, the FDA has suddenly reversed its stance, now permitting doctors to prescribe ivermectin for COVID-19 cases.
As reported by The Epoch Times, the “‘FDA explicitly recognizes that doctors do have the authority to prescribe ivermectin to treat COVID,’ Ashley Cheung Honold, a Department of Justice lawyer representing the FDA, said during oral arguments on Aug. 8 in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit.”
From The Epoch Times:
The government is defending the FDA’s repeated exhortations to people to not take ivermectin for COVID-19, including a post that said “Stop it.”
The case was brought by three doctors who allege the FDA unlawfully interfered with their practice of medicine with the statements. A federal judge dismissed the case in 2022, prompting an appeal.
“The fundamental issue in this case is straightforward. After the FDA approves the human drug for sale, does it then have the authority to interfere with how that drug is used within the doctor-patient relationship? The answer is no,” Jared Kelson, representing the doctors, told the appeals court.
The FDA explicitly stated that ivermectin “isn’t authorized or approved to treat COVID-19,” In court however, the agency tried to justify its corruption.
The Epoch Times report cont.:
“FDA made these statements in response to multiple reports of consumers being hospitalized, after self medicating with ivermectin intended for horses, which is available for purchase over the counter without the need for prescription,” Ms. Honold said.
A version of the drug for animals is available, but ivermectin is approved by the FDA for human use against diseases caused by parasites.
Ms. Honold said that the FDA didn’t purport to require anyone to do anything or to prohibit anyone from doing anything.
“What about when it said, ‘No, stop it’?” Circuit Judge Jennifer Walker Elrod, on the panel that is hearing the appeal, asked. “Why isn’t that a command? If you were in English class, they would say that was a command.”
Ms. Honold described the statements as “merely quips.”
“Can you answer the question, please? Is that a command, ‘Stop it’?” Judge Elrod asked.
“In some contexts, those words could be construed as a command,” Ms. Honold said. “But in this context, where FDA was simply using these words in the context of a quippy tweet meant to share its informational article, those statements do not rise to the level of a command.”
The statements “don’t prohibit doctors from prescribing ivermectin to treat COVID or for any other purpose” Ms. Honold said. She noted that the FDA, along with the statements, said that people should consult their health care providers about COVID-19 treatments and that they could take medicine if it was prescribed by the provider.
“FDA is clearly acknowledging that doctors have the authority to prescribe human ivermectin to treat COVID. So they are not interfering with the authority of doctors to prescribe drugs or to practice medicine,” she said.
Speaking with Maria Bartiromo, Senator Ron Johnson detailed the harm caused by the FDA’s decisions.
Sen. Ron Johnson:
You know, the doctors I’ve been dealing with and talking to for yours now, they believe that probably hundreds of thousands of Americans lost their lives because they were denied early treatment and they were denied it because the FDA sabotaged, for example, ivermectin. And they said, come on, you all, you’re not a cow, you’re not a horse. You know, this is supposedly horse medicine. No, this was a Nobel Prize-winning medicine that could have saved hundreds of thousands of lives.
