AMA national chief refuses to discipline Dr McCrae

TO her credit, the Sydney Morning Herald’s Latika Bourke today pursued the Australian Medical Association over Victorian state president Roderick McRae’s call for the unvaccinated to be left to die. Like a lot of God Complex medicos sashaying through public discourse with upturned noses these days, Omar Khorshid didn’t want to face questions. Instead, he twitter-stormed the obvious admission before using a classic “but” pivot to double-down:

The Australian Medical Association’s Code of Ethics , which is rooted in the Hippocratic Oath, requires doctors to “provide care impartially and without discrimination on the basis of age, disease or disability, creed, religion, ethnic origin, gender, nationality, political affiliation, race, sexual orientation, criminal history, social standing or any other similar criteria.”

When asked by this masthead if the Victorian branch’s comment violated the code, federal President Omar Khorshid declined to respond and instead responded with a late-night post on Twitter.

“The AMA Code of Ethics guides the behaviour of doctors and is the foundation of AMA policy. Doctors will always provide care to patients considering their right to make their own decisions, even bad ones like not getting [vaccinated],” he said.

“This means we respect your decisions even when don’t agree with them. Most importantly it means if you need – and want – treatment, we will be here for you.

But if you don’t get vaccinated you are putting the lives of others at risk, including the doctors and nurses who look after you when sick and anyone who needs a hospital. So just do it. Now,” Dr Khorshid added.

He wants the unvaccinated vaccinated because… the vaccinated have no protection from covid. If you suspect these lately sainted shamans and alleged bug-whisperers have been making all sorts of things up all along, you’d be right. The UK Telegraph is reporting that at least 26 per cent of British patients listed as covid cases were actually hospitalised for other causes. That isn’t a mere rounding error. As the newspaper’s science editor, Sarah Knapton, says, health officials are guilty of either a cock-up or a conspiracy. The two are not mutually exclusive.

    The AMA; another institution captured by the left.
    There should be absolutely no qualifying who should receive medical attention and who should not.
    Otherwise it is the grossest violation of medical ethics and the Hippocratic Oath, and those in favour of it are scum.
    A murderer or captured enemy soldier wouldn’t be treated differently (or not treated) by a doctor or medico; why should someone’s vaccine status make any difference?

  2. Lee says:

    By not taking action against McRae, the AMA is in effect endorsing his comments.
    Utterly shameful.

  3. Lee says:

    Or the AMA is at least condoning his highly unethical comments.

  4. Tom says:

    As its officials admit here, the AMA no longer swears by the Hippocratic Oath. AMA members will now treat only those who bow down to and kiss the arses of doctors with a god complex.

    Cartoonist and satirist Patrick Cook once described the AMA as the painters and doctors union. Sadly, that sort of straight-talking has gone out of fashion.

  5. Entropy says:

    The head of the federal AMA shouldn’t have to do anything. Let the idiot keep his platform. I would rather spiders be in plain sight.

  6. Lee says:

    It’s a very sorry day indeed, when a doctor or the medical profession allow politics or personal malevolence (e.g. hatred of anti-Covid vaxxers) to override medical ethics, or simple humanity.

  7. Pommyal says:

    Why does it appear a lot of so-called educated people can’t recognize scum when they see it. Swimming in the same cesspit.
    Australia is in deep shit.

  8. rosie says:

    I suppose ama membership will shrink even further.
    Good.

  9. FlyingPigs says:

    Every AMA doctor has an insurance rating… death v success so to speak.

    But the AMA cabal hide that.

    FFS… the head of the Victorian branch of the cabal is a trained lawyer.

    The medical-industrial complex rips tax money from us.

    Shamans, faith healers and practical people will have to go underground.

    Maybe this Dr Khorshid, for a Doctor he is, also took the Hypocritical Oath not the Hippocratic Oath

  11. FlyingPigs says:

    AMA

    Absolute manic Arseholes

    Does anyone know a way to avoid doctors who are AMA members?

    I wouldn’t want my life in the hands of Dr Roderick McRae … I don’t trust him one inch after he has displayed his lack of medical ethics. I agree that the AMA has been captured by the hard Left and is being used as a political platform, meaning that they are no long really doing medicine at all.

    Does anyone know a way to avoid doctors who are AMA members?

    SE Asia have some of the highest qualified medical practitioners on the Planet.

    The good one’s went overseas, mainly but not only USA, and then returned home.

    You need to have cash or similar arrangement.
