The ‘deceptive acts’ these doctors were accused of providing were, in actuality, courageous acts of life-saving compassion.” A member of the FLCCC’s legal team responds to the NY AG’s “cease and desist” letter to doctors and healthcare providers.

The mountains of medical evidence and peer-reviewed scientific papers prove the safety and efficacy of ivermectin.

On November 23, 2021, the office of Letitia James, Attorney General of the State of New York, issued a letter to physicians listed as telehealth providers on the FLCCC website. She warned these doctors – many of whom were from other states – that they must “cease and desist” from prescribing ivermectin to residents of New York State; and that they must amend their telehealth “advertisement” on the FLCCC website to indicate they do NOT serve residents of the state of New York.

The letter further threatened that failure to comply with the Attorney General’s directive could result in a lawsuit seeking to “enjoin deceptive acts”; and to seek restitution, damages and penalties of up to $5,000 for each violation.

The “deceptive acts” to which the AG referred were outlined in the letter. (Note: All of the following noted by the AG are demonstrably FALSE, as evidenced by peer-reviewed science.)

FALSEHOOD #1: Providers of ivermectin are misleading consumers as to the effectiveness of ivermectin for COVID-19.

FACT: The effectiveness of ivermectin has been proven in over 70 scientific trials.

FALSEHOOD #2: Adverse effects associated with ivermectin are increasing, as shown in a rise in calls to poison control centers reporting overdoses and adverse effects.

FACT: After the New York Times reported that the Mississippi State Department of Health attributed 70% of its calls to ivermectin adverse events, they were forced to retract the figures. In fact, the ivermectin-related calls to the Mississippi State Department of Health represented only 2% of the total calls; and that 70% of those calls (1.4% of all calls) were from people who ingested veterinary grade ivermectin. (NOTE: The FLCCC has consistently advised against the use of animal-grade ivermectin.)

FALSEHOOD #3: The National Institutes of Health has determined that there is insufficient evidence to recommend ivermectin for COVID-19

FACT: The NIH has a “neutral” stance on IVM use.

Very soon after the issuance of that letter, doctors listed on our website who provide telehealth for residents of New York began sending us the copies they received. Understandably, many asked to be removed from our website, or to have their listings amended to exclude provision of services to New York residents.

The “deceptive acts” these doctors were accused of providing were, in actuality, courageous acts of life-saving compassion. Robust epidemiological studies from around the world validate the science in the real world and point to the effectiveness of preventive protocols based around ivermectin. But the well-coordinated and well-funded media campaign against ivermectin has strangled true science and caused the senseless deaths of hundreds of thousands.

Attorney General of the State of New York, Letitia James

Upon reading the AG’s letter, the physicians and scientists on our team immediately knew that Ms. James had “leapt before she looked” by failing to evaluate, investigate —or even acknowledge— any of the peer-reviewed and published scientific data that overwhelmingly support ivermectin-related protocols in radically lowering COVID-19 related hospitalizations and death. Instead, the AG mindlessly parroted the severely  compromised—and profit motivated—Big Pharma/FDA narrative that the vaccines are forever and always the only solution to the pandemic; and now maybe some new, and of course, extremely expensive antiviral drugs that have neither the efficacy nor the safety profiles of ivermectin. (The vaccines are but one of many solutions.)

For advice on how to provide guidance to our telehealth doctors, we turned to our esteemed legal counsel, Alan Dumoff. On our behalf, Alan wrote a response letter to the New York Attorney General’s office to address the gross misconceptions and twisted science that was masquerading as fact by the AG’s office.

This letter and its powerful legal, scientific and ethical arguments can be utilized by doctors and nurses prescribing ivermectin to New York residents – or to the residents of any state that attempts to dictate to health care providers how they can or cannot treat their patients.
