We’ve covered how woke activists are desperately trying to stop Missouri from passing a common-sense bill to get divisive ideology out of medical schools. It’s equally true that medical students and physicians support this bill, along with citizens across the state. We’ve been tipped off to messages that prove it.
To choose just one: In support of Rep. Ben Baker’s bill, a courageous MD student at the University of Missouri Columbia School of Medicine quietly documented how the institutional leaders are trying to stop it. That includes a message from a chair for the Mizzou student chapter of the AMA and Missouri State Medical Association regarding “Steps You Can Take to Protect DEI in Our Curriculum.”
The student also documented many ways Mizzou is pushing wokeness on future physicians, such as:
The MU School of Medicine Office of Medical Education has a way for students to anonymously report one another for “microaggressions”… this is vague enough to keep anyone who slightly deviates from the woke script on their toes and afraid to stand up for what they believe to be right. This is a real threat to us.
The student also documented getting “official emails saying that we should post our pronouns in our emails and zoom names.” The student ends with a plea: “we should be able to rein in the madness.” That’s exactly what Rep. Baker’s bill would do.
The rapid rise of woke medical schools has driven students and physicians to support this bill. They are driven by deep concern for the medical profession and patient care. The loudest woke activists don’t speak for Missouri’s medical professionals, much less the people of the Show-Me State. Rep. Baker deserves praise for fighting for their health and well-being – by fighting against the dangerous woke ideology of DEI.
Get up to speed with the threats facing healthcare – and how we’re protecting patients and physicians.
