Dr. Courtney Bennett is a cardiologist at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, where she directs the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit. She holds leadership roles on the medical education committees for both the Cardiovascular Medicine Fellowship and the Internal Medicine Residency. In other words, she’s a top doctor in one of the top fields at one of the nation’s top hospitals. She’s a pretty big deal as far as physicians go.
So it matters quite a bit how Dr. Bennett approaches her job. Well, here’s a comment Dr. Bennett made on Facebook for the world to see.
Quote: “I can’t believe we live in a society of self-centered people who get their medical advice from sources like YouTube or OAN yet beg us to help them breathe using technology developed by actual science when they’re blue and gasping for air. Do me a favor and don’t burden our hospitals because you are ignorant. Ask YouTube or OAN for help.” She ended her message with a hashtag, “Vaccinate.”
Now, Dr. Bennett is free to get the vaccine if she wants. She’s free to endorse it and promote its use to other people, too.
But a post like that certainly raises the question: Do you trust a woman like that to fairly treat people who come under her care? Think about the disturbing message she’s sending. “If you’re sick, get out and don’t burden my hospital with your ignorance.” Actually, that’s being charitable. Her message seems to be “If you make your own decisions after your own health, and don’t do exactly what I say at all times, then frankly I don’t feel like treating you if you’re ill. Please die.”
There are people out there who have had severe reactions to other vaccines, and the eye-popping record-smashing reports of adverse events to this one are publicly available for the world to see. There are expectant mothers who don’t want to get a vaccine that wasn’t robustly tested on pregnant mothers, and the New England Journal of Medicine published a study on the safety of the mRNA Covid-19 Vaccine in a Nationwide Setting that concluded the vaccine was associated with an excess risk of myocarditis, noting the risk of this potentially serious adverse event and of many other serious adverse events was substantially increased after SARS-CoV-2 infection.
There are people who see COVID-19 as dangerous, but consider that risk more worthwhile than the unknown-unknowns of a vaccine that relies on new technology we don’t understand the long-term effects of, along with a number of scientists and microscopy experts revealing some pretty frightening findings after their examination of the vials containing the seemingly top secret contents.
And there are people who simply don’t trust what health authorities say, because they’ve seen them lie over and over again, about masks, about the virus’s risk to children, about “mostly peaceful protests” last summer, and so forth.
I could go on. The point is this: Individual people are allowed to make choices about their health. And when they make the choice to go to a hospital for treatment, they deserve to have doctors who will try to treat them. They don’t deserve doctors who will seethe that they deserve to die because of the choices they make. And when you have people like this Dr. Bennett, openly saying that sick people should buzz off and die, is it any surprise that so many Americans have grown distrustful of the medical establishment over the past year?
Dr. Lee Merritt has served on the Board of the Arizona Medical Association, she’s a past president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, she’s one of the originals at America’s Frontline Doctors, she’s been an information warrior in the fight against medical tyranny like this, and she joined Stew Peters to respond to this Mayo Clinic doctor cheering the death of Trump voters.
