(Natural News) Even though federal bureaucrats have arbitrarily decided that Americans should not have access to it, Oklahoma Attorney General John O’Connor says that doctors in his state, at least, are well within their professional rights to prescribe ivermectin to Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) patients.
The same goes for hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), another blacklisted drug that the federal overlords have decreed should never go into an American’s body because it might actually help to prevent a serious infection.
“The Attorney General’s office finds no legal basis for a state medical licensure board to discipline a licensed physician for exercising sound judgment and safely prescribing an FDA-approved drug – like ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine – for the off-label purpose of treating a patient with COVID-19,” O’Connor’s office said in a February 8 statement.
“Healthcare professionals should have every tool available to combat COVID-19,” the statement goes on to read. “The Attorney General’s office neither condones nor condemns a specific course of treatment for COVID-19. Our office maintains that proper healthcare decisions are to be made between a patient and his or her physician, and the government should not interfere with their relationship.”
