“Decertification for speaking out in favor of early outpatient treatment of COVID-19, or calling into question the monolithic vaccine narrative, is a gross abuse of authority and will generate a strong legal response.”

America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS) Associate Medical Director Dr. Richard Amerling MD today responded to the joint statement issued by the American Board of Family Medicine, the American Board of Internal Medicine, and the American Board of Pediatrics supporting the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) statement that providing “misinformation” about the COVID-19 vaccine “contradicts physicians’ ethical and professional responsibilities, and therefore may subject a physician to disciplinary actions, including suspension or revocation of their medical license.”

The American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM), the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM), and the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) wrote in support FSMB’s position: “We also want all physicians certified by our Boards to know that such unethical or unprofessional conduct may prompt their respective Board to take action that could put their certification at risk.”

Dr. Amerling responded to the statement, saying: “It’s a sad commentary on American Medicine that private certifying agencies with near-monopoly power are using their pulpits to promote a government-backed narrative of a one-size-fits-all treatment, that has already injured tens of thousands of individuals at little or no risk from COVID-19. Recent data cast severe doubt on vaccine efficacy, particularly against the delta variant.”

He continued: “It should be noted that the Federation of State Medical Boards is a quasi-legal interstate compact that has no authority over individual state medical licensing boards.

“AFLDS encourages physicians who currently hold certification from these boards to immediately apply for certification from the National Board of Physicians and Surgeons and to stop funding these corrupt agencies with ‘maintenance of certification’ fees.”

America’s Frontline Doctors’ Associate Medical Director concluded: “Decertification for speaking out in favor of early outpatient treatment of COVID-19, or calling into question the monolithic vaccine narrative, is a gross abuse of authority and will generate a strong legal response.”
