The Biden White House is quietly trying to force woke ideology into healthcare. So every American should pay attention to what the administration’s “COVID-19 equity initiatives” leader recently said: Namely, that more radical and divisive healthcare policies are on the way.
Dr. Cameron Webb said as much in a May 17th Washington Post event on health equity. He said:
“I think what the president has done pretty intentionally is [ask] how can we make equity a thread through all of government, infused in everything that we do… It’s certainly better than the alternative, and I think it’s an important turning point, inflection point for our country.”
We already have a hint about what this means. As our executive director Kristina Rasmussen has written, the current White House is bribing doctors to implement potentially discriminatory “anti-racism” plans. It’s also working with Congress to spend hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars on “equity” in healthcare.
The transparent goal is to put identity politics – not individualized patient treatment – at the heart of medicine. Equity is fundamentally opposed to medical excellence, since it requires that everyone be guaranteed the same outcomes, even if that means offering some people preferential care because of their skin color. The goal of healthcare should be to improve outcomes for everyone, regardless of what they look like.
Dr. Webb’s recent comments indicate that what we’ve seen is just the beginning. The federal campaign to turn physicians into activists and replace medical science with social demands is just getting started. If it isn’t stopped, patients will suffer most.
If you’re aware of federal plans to bring woke ideology into healthcare, please let us know.
Get up to speed with the threats facing healthcare – and how we’re protecting patients and physicians.
