California will criminalize Informed Consent if Newsom signs AB2098
If you want the government to be your doctor, then please do nothing
Bye bye bodily autonomy, informed consent, any medical freedom. Stick out your arm for the shot when so ordered, because only government apparatchiks will be allowed to practice medicine. As California goes, so will the nation, or at least its bluer half. Say hello to AB2098.
Here is the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons’ discussion of the bill. It is too polite. But it tells you where to send your message.
As you likely have heard, a dangerous bill, AB 2098, has been passed by the California legislature that will punish physicians who seek to publicly speak out about issues that directly impact their patients' well-being.
For example, under AB 2098, physicians who advocate for early treatment with off-label drugs, who ask questions about COVID vaccine safety, or challenge the wisdom of harmful lockdowns and unscientific masking mandates, will be charged with unprofessional conduct for promoting "misinformation or disinformation" and risk losing their medical license.
Physicians must not be coerced into blindly following the establishment "consensus" and refraining from entering into debate that is crucial to advancing both science and rational public health policies.
AB 2098 will harm the welfare of California patients, the integrity of the medical profession, and the well-being of the entire state.
Please take a few moments to send a message to Governor Newsom asking him to VETO AB 2098.

Even if you are not in California, you can send Gov. Newsom a note. If this bad law is enacted in just one state, it emboldens those who seek to push these harmful policies across the nation.
Thank you for speaking out. Your voice can make a difference!
As a licensed California physician I find this likely the worst thing that has happened in the decades that I have been licensed. This is the end of any kind of physician/patient relationship. The doctor will now have to recite the State Diktat regarding everything or lose their license.
This will just cause more of us to flee the state (I have several other licenses and use them) and will deprecate health care in California even more...hard to imagine, considering.
The medical societies have been useless with regard to this bill, sponsored by State Senator Pan, probably the worst physician in the history of politics. Even the doctor associations are overrun with far left ideologues in control positions -- they think this is great.
Only a lawsuit will stop this eventually, but the fact that it would get this far and that no one is shouting it from the hilltops is scandalous.
Bless the AAPS -- And we all used to laugh at them...
Email Done! I’m in CA and I have been horrified by the ABs they have been trying to pass. It’s a nightmare. Im considering relocating because this state is a mess. I write this as I sit in the dark because of power conservation restrictions. Meanwhile Newsom wants to go all electric vehicles?! What an epic disaster of an idea! We can’t even buy gas lawn mowers here now. Yet big corporations continue to dump single use plastics into the oceans and landfills. Im a former Dem (now Independent) who voted Republican for the first time in the primaries and will do so again at mid terms. These policies have to go!
