The following is a transcript from nationally syndicated radio host Todd Starnes’ commentary heard on hundreds of stations across the country.
Hello Americans. I’m Todd Starnes with news and commentary next.
The Hippocratic Oath is one of the oldest binding documents in world history. A promise doctors make to look after the sick and afflicted – without prejudice.
A bond between physician and patient — that for most of time has gone unbroken — until now.
The other day in South Florida 75 doctors walked off the job – leaving behind their patients and the oath they swore to God.
The doctors were angry at having to treat unvaccinated Americans. Blaming them for the rise in China virus cases across the state.
Let’s be clear – They abandoned their patients to make a political statement. It was a staged protest meant for cable television news.
It was a gross violation of the Hippocratic oath. And it sends a very dangerous message to future generations of doctors and surgeons.
Let’s say there’s a car accident and you were not wearing a seat belt. Does that mean the ER doctor should not repair your broken arm?
Or what if a fat person suffers a heart attack. No bypass surgery for you, pal.
Is that modern-day medicine? To tell patients they get what they deserve?
I know this may seem like a foreign concept to the woke medical community – but what about vowing to treat all patients no matter their vaccination status.
I’m Todd Starnes.
