Last week, a group of doctors held a press conference in front of the Supreme Court sharing the success of Hydroxychloroquine in their practices. They were immediately censored by YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, their posts repeatedly removed. Some have been fired, reprimanded, vilified in the press. Why? Who are these doctors who risk losing their careers, daring to speak up against the mainstream media in order to save lives?

Governors have ordered Pharmacy Boards to ban Hydroxychloroquine even though it is used in cases for Systemic Lupus Erythematosus and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Doctors across the United States are being called and asked by pharmacists to divulge the intended use. This violates Physician/ Patient privacy, HIPAA laws.
When I reached out to the local pharmacy of my county, I was told that they did indeed receive notification from the PBM (Pharmacy Benefit Managers) that the pharmacy has to ask the purpose of use since Hydroxychloroquine is not authorized by the FDA for COVID use. If the insurance company is going to pay for HQ, it must be documented for authorized use, or the money will be taken away from the Pharmacy retroactively. Patients can pay out of pocket and bypass the insurance companies.
In Nazi Germany, scientists and doctors who didn’t agree with Hitler’s race science, were also censored and silenced. Wake up America! ■
