Preserving Medical Freedom!!
It's our pleasure to stand with courageous Drs. who willingly "buck the system" to save lives. SMF is representing Dr. Turner to save his license so he can continue saving those lives.
Dr. Turner is involved in two cases with Silent Majority Foundation. He is the lead plaintiff challenging the Washington Medical Commissions COVID-19 Misinformation Position Statement in an attempt to protect the free speech of Doctors across Washington and holding the Washington Medical Commission accountable for using a Position Statement that is not a rule to punish doctors. After we sued the Washington Medical Commission we asked the judge to enjoin the enforcement of the unlawful position statement for two reasons
- It was passed without allowing doctors or the public to comment on it (among other omissions) -- a violation of the Administrative Procedures Act.
- It violated Doctors' free speech by punishing them for talking about COVID -19 treatments the Commission disapproved of.
The judge refused to rule on our preliminary injunction. Instead he chose to stay it until all of the doctors had their hearings in front of the Washington Medical Commission.
We asked for reconsideration, but the judge refused to reconsider his ruling. Therefore we are considering filing a motion for discretionary review with the appeals court. Recently, Dr. Eggleston has been granted discretionary review on similar grounds we are claiming in this case.
Dr. Turner is also facing a challenge against his license. He helped many patients during the pandemic by prescribing ivermectin among other early nutraceuticals to attempt to help reduce their chances of landing in the hospital. For this he is being brought in front of the Washington Medical Commission on charges that he has committed unprofessional conduct. Silent Majority Foundation is defending him in this challenge
