Association of American Physicians and Surgeons dismantles push to mandate COVID vaccines for all

(LifeSiteNews) — In response to a “Joint Statement” of various medical organizations supporting employer mandates of experimental mRNA COVID-19 gene-therapy injections for approximately 17 million unvaccinated health care workers, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) has issued a strong response defending the rights of all individuals, including healthcare workers, to decline all such medical interventions.

AAPS, which was founded in 1943 with a mission of preserving “the highest ethical standards of the Oath of Hippocrates,” declared in a statement “that all human beings have the right to liberty, which they do not forfeit when they serve the sick or the disabled. The ethical commitment to protect others does not require workers to surrender their bodily integrity and self-determination.”

Affirming that such experimental drugs cannot be coerced according to federal law, the non-partisan professional association lamented the increased hospitalizations and deaths that have recently come about despite “around half the population” receiving the injections, which is curiously the opposite result “one would expect in an effective vaccination campaign.”

“Reports of post-injection death or long-term disability to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) are reaching unprecedented levels,” they acknowledged.

And countering the media mantra of “safe & effective,” AAPS clarified that “[m]edical interventions are rarely completely safe or effective, and risks and benefits differ in individual patients and differing circumstances.” In addition, the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Emergency Use Authorization for these chemicals “does not confer safety or effectiveness” as “studies are not scheduled to be complete until the end of 2022” and even “FDA-approved products have frequently been withdrawn in the past.”

In addition, AAPS, whose motto “omnia pro aegroto” means “all for the patient,” defended the right of individuals to a religious exemption that was not recognized by the Joint Statement. “[M]any workers object to receiving these products based on their religious beliefs,” they said, and “[m]edical exemptions are virtually never recognized for the COVID vaccines, because there is improper denial that they cause harm to anyone.”

“Long-term effects of these novel, genetically engineered products cannot possibly be known at this point,” they observed. “These could include autoimmune disorders, antibody-enhanced disease, infertility, cancer, or birth defects.”

This point is reportedly and explicitly affirmed by experimental COVID vaccine manufacturer Pfizer. In Tucker Carlson’s commentary addressing the mandates on Wednesday, the Fox News host shared an excerpt from a Pfizer purchase agreement with the government of Albania that stipulated, “[p]urchaser acknowledges … the long-term effects and efficacy of the Vaccine are not currently known and that there may be adverse effects of the Vaccine that are currently not known.”

“Well, is that reassuring?” Carlson exclaimed. “What are those effects? And why don’t we know? And why can’t we ask? No one’s pausing to ask questions at this moment. That’s not allowed … You’re an ‘anti-vaxer’ if you ask those questions!”

With regard to the ethical relationship between employers and employees, AAPS states the former “are obligated to protect their workers from foreseeable hazards, even from risks as low or lower than 1 in 10,000,” nor are they “permitted to impose risks that may well be that significant.”
