TUCSON, Arizona (PNN) - July 28, 2021 - The chief of an influential physicians organization that represents doctors in a multitude of practices is warning that making COVID-19 vaccinations mandatory could endanger millions.
The comments come from Dr. Paul Kempen, M.D., who leads the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons.
He was responding to a call from a coalition of medical organizations, many with far-Left agendas, for making shots of experimental vaccines mandatory for health workers.
Kempen pointed out, "As of mid-July, 30 million people have recovered from COVID-19 in the (Fascist Police States of Amerika) and have natural immunity. Vaccination of these persons confers only risk with little to no benefit, yet these mandates do not exempt them."
He said, "Serious side effects have been identified, including paralysis and inflammation of the heart muscle, which may not resolve and may cause death."
Then, too, he noted, "As variants multiply, 'booster' shots may be required, with increasing risk of allergic phenomena."
A statement from the AAPS noted some of the other threats that mandatory vaccinations pose.
One is that although about half of the FPSA population has gotten the injections, COVID has been "proliferating, and hospitalizations and deaths are increasing, not diminishing as one would expect in an effective vaccination campaign. Both vaccinated and unvaccinated persons are succumbing."
Further, the group warned, "Long-term effects of these novel, genetically engineered products cannot possibly be known at this point. These could include autoimmune disorders, antibody-enhanced disease, infertility, cancer, or birth defects."
The statement continued, "Moreover, the benefit to the public in this instance is purely hypothetical. Uninfected persons cannot transmit infection just because they are unvaccinated. Vaccinated persons can still infect others. Many medical workers already have natural immunity, and mandated shots impose risks with little or no benefit, yet there is no provision to exempt them."
Widespread requirements for experimental treatments, AAPS explained, "would not be approved by an Institutional Review Board on both ethical and scientific grounds: no consent; no disclosure of the experimenters' conflicts of interest; no control group; no follow-up of subjects for COVID status, immune parameters, or adverse effects; no provision for medical care of the subjects; and no criteria for stopping the experiment if subjects are being harmed."
A better course would include early treatment options, AAPS said.
The AAPS pointed that all people have a right to liberty, "which they do not forfeit when they serve the sick or the disabled.”
