Dr. Peter McCullough says medical establishment has threatened ‘disciplinary action’ over COVID stance by Ashley Sadler for Life Site News
‘They are attacking the doctors who are the leaders in helping American people,’ Dr. McCullough said.
Dallas-based internist, cardiologist, and epidemiologist Dr. Peter McCullough, who has authored 54 peer-reviewed publications on COVID-19 and testified before the U.S. Senate on the pandemic response, told LifeSiteNews during a Tuesday interview that he has received notice of potential disciplinary action from the American Board of Internal Medicine because of his stance on the COVID-19 response.
According to McCullough, the letter from the Board “cited public statements” the cardiologist has made concerning COVID-19 with which the board disagreed.
McCullough has publicly and repeatedly denounced the draconian COVID-19 restrictions, lockdowns, and mandates imposed over the past two years, advocating instead for the cultivation of natural immunity and early treatment through effective therapeutics.
According to McCullough, the Board said his previous comments “could lead somebody to think the vaccines weren’t effective or that they would not take a vaccine.”
The prominent doctor said the letter makes it obvious that the American Board of Internal Medicine has made “the presumption that the vaccines are safe and effective.”
However, he argued that since the jabs have only been rolled out under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) and lack long-term studies, “no board, no doctor can ever encourage or discourage people to take them because they’re experimental.”
The internist and cardiologist further asserted that if the Board believes people should be pressured into taking the experimental drugs, they are “implicitly violating the Nuremberg Code,” the post-World War II ethics code that prohibits forcing people to take part in medical experiments.
McCullough said that the Board’s letter included quoted comments he made under oath during his testimonies before the U.S. Senate and the Texas State Senate.
