We unfairly give way too much authority and credibility to medical associations. They’re comprised of people who are no more moral or ethical than the rest of the human race. Heinous acts have been committed in the name of “medical science” throughout history: Shark Island, Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment, Nazi Science Experiments, Gosnell’s Supercoil Experiment, Puerto Rico Birth Control Experiment, Philadelphia Prison Experiments, Children with Cerebral Palsy at Sonoma State Hospital, University of Iowa ‘Monster Study’, and so many more.
So why do we accept their blatant political activism disguised as healthcare?
The American Medical Association (AMA) just released one of the most ludicrous defenses of abortion ever, entitled: “Ban on standard D&E abortion procedure is unsafe, unwarranted.” Killing our children is unsafe and unwarranted. But, when it comes to abortion, the AMA isn’t interested in humanity but histrionics. In its political opposition to Kentucky’s H.B. 454 (“An Act Relating to the Human Rights of Unborn Children and Declaring An Emergency”), the AMA laments that pro-life laws put “patients at serious and unnecessary risk.” Isn’t that what abortion does to any human being on which it is committed? Significantly increasing risk of preterm births (a major cause of birth defects), triple-negative breast cancer, adverse mental health consequences, and killing millions of America’s youngest patients…aren’t these negative outcomes unnecessary?
The AMA’s affairs with pseudoscience are nothing new. Up until 1953, the organization profited from cigarette ads placed in their own Journal of the American Medical Association despite years of research showing the serious harms of smoking. The ads would even feature “doctors” promoting the cancer sticks. In 1964, when the U.S. Surgeon General issued the first report on how cigarette smoking causes lung cancer, what did the AMA do? They remained silent. When Congress passed the Federal Cigarette Labeling and Advertising Act of 1965 and the Public Health Cigarette Smoking Act of 1969, putting warning labels on cigarette packages and banning cigarette advertising on TV, did the AMA finally sound the alarm? According to a shocking Journal of American Public Health Association article, it wasn’t until 1978 that the AMA finally publicly addressed the dangers of cigarette smoking.
How many years and how many millions of lives destroyed will it take for the AMA to do the same regarding abortion?
It took until 2008 for the AMA to formerly apologize for over a century of systemic racism in discriminating against black doctors and preventing them from joining the nation’s (mis)leading medical society. Black physicians had to create their own organization called the National Medical Association (NMA).
Sadly, the NMA has abandoned facts for fiction, too, when it comes to abortion—the leading killer in the black community with rates up to 5 times higher than the majority population. When did a negative health disparity become something to defend? Deaths of unborn black lives, via abortion, are 69 times higher than HIV deaths, 31 times higher than all homicides, and nearly 4 times higher than both cancer and heart disease deaths.
