Freedom of Speech in danger!!

Without doctors having the ability to speak about these policies, consider different options, and debate opposing viewpoints, individuals seeking medical treatment cannot be assured that the best measures are employed in their care. Nor can the people have confidence that the government is doing its most important job--protecting the rights of a free people. After all, open debate is the bulwark of a free society. Richmond Newspapers v. Virginia, 448 U.S. 555, 587 n.3, 100 S. Ct. 2814, 2833, 65 L.Ed.2d 973, 996 (1980) (quoting Saxbe v. Wash. Post Co., 417 U.S. 843, 862-63, 94 S. Ct. 2811, 2821, 41 L.Ed.2d 514, 527 (1974)). It is only through the sieve of open and public debate that truth is realized in society, and the best debate for this purpose is a debate amongst experts in the field. Thus, limitations on the debate of health policies is not a compelling government interest.  --Karen Osborne

Dr. Moon's Story:

Dr. Moon is an exceptionally well-trained pediatrician with over 25 years of clinical experience. She trained at a top U.S. medical school, earning board certification in both general pediatrics and pediatric hospital medicine. With an unblemished career record of patient care, Dr. Moon practiced in the State of Washington for over 17 years primarily as a pediatric hospitalist at Sacred Heart Children's Hospital in Spokane. Despite caring for the region’s sickest children – patient care with one of the highest risks of malpractice claims – she has had no malpractice claims or actions against her license in Washington State or elsewhere.

Dr. Moon testified at a public hearing entitled “Covid-19 Vaccines: What They Are, How They Work, and Possible Causes of Injuries” held by a US Senator in Washington DC in December 2022. In July 2023, Washington State’s Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine reported Dr. Moon’s public testimony to The Washington Medical Commission. The Washington Medical Commission is now investigating Dr. Moon’s medical license for alleged “unprofessional conduct” for voicing concern about the dangers of the Covid-19 shots at this senate hearing. The current investigation by the Washington Medical Commission is frivolous, based on unsound policy and persecutes a physician simply for speaking.

This investigation is an attempt by the Washington Medical Commission to regulate Dr. Moon’s rights of petition, assembly, and speech, and to chill these first amendment rights and those of other medical professionals. A medical professional is not required to agree with any government agency, including the Washington Medical Commission. A medical professional has the obligation to put the well-being of his or her patients before any government-imposed orthodoxy or narrative. A medical professional has the right to gather with other medical professionals and petition the government regarding issues of public interest. In addition, medical ethics dictates that a medical professional has the obligation to speak out when there is a concern that a medical product, which is being used widely and indiscriminately, poses potential risks or where questions arise about its safety. Such debate provides a healthy check and balance on the practice of medicine and promote the primary responsibility to first do no harm.
