Do No Harm just made an appearance at the Supreme Court. In a brief filed yesterday in Students for Fair Admissions, Inc. v. University of North Carolina, we were highlighted for showing the rise of woke racial discrimination in healthcare. We’re grateful to Students for Fair Admissions for giving us a shout-out.
This case involves racial discrimination in university admissions, which the Supreme Court currently allows under the guise of “affirmative action.” Students for Fair Admissions points out that by allowing such discrimination in higher education, the Supreme Court has encouraged the spread of this dangerous practice across virtually all of society – including healthcare.
Which leads to our shout-out. The brief mentions our criticism of the American Medical Association, which support race-based decision-making with COVID treatments. As we wrote earlier this year, the AMA supports policies that “force… doctors to change their standard of care based on a patient’s skin color. The name for that is discrimination, and it has no place in the doctor’s office.”
Of course, this is far from the only example of racial discrimination in healthcare. We’ve also highlighted how many medical schools are offering race-based scholarships and how one of Harvard Medical School’s teaching hospitals is providing preferential access to care for specific races. Driving by woke activists, discrimination is becoming more prevalent in healthcare by the day.
We hope the Supreme Court puts fairness and equality over racial discrimination. The upcoming case may not deal with healthcare explicitly, but the right ruling would still send a message that the medical establishment can’t ignore. It’s about time the federal courts helped stop discrimination in healthcare.
Get up to speed with the threats facing healthcare – and how we’re protecting patients and physicians.
