How many doctors & scientists must be lost to political games before people see the risk to society?
September 23, 2021: Minnesota Gubernatorial candidate, Dr. Scott Jensen, discusses the case of Dr. Aaron Kheriaty (Bioethicist, Physician, and UCI Professor) against the University of California (UCI-Irvine). The case filed by Dr. Kheriaty underscores UCI's excessive use of baseless Covid mandates and a stubborn unwillingness to recognize the health advantages of those who have proven natural immunity against Covid.
Dr. Kheriaty closes his official statement to UCI-Irvine with a single question:
"How can I continue to call myself a medical ethicist if I fail to do what I am convinced is morally right under pressure?"
There is only one ethical answer to this question and Dr. Kheriaty has expressed the correct answer through his noble actions. Let's all hope that many more doctors find their way to the ethical paths being traced by courageous leaders like Dr. Kheriaty.
