West Virginia Health Freedom Forum
Charleston, W. Va.— Several members of the West Virginia House of Delegates will be hosting a West Virginia Health Freedom Forum at the State Capitol in Charleston, West Virginia on Wednesday, February 16th, at 5:00 pm in the House Government Organization Committee room, East Wing, Room 215-E.
The forum is to bring attention to several bills that deal with health freedoms and are stuck in committee and are not moving. By not running the bills, the Delegates feel they’ve been denied the opportunity to bring expert testimony into the capitol and to debate the issues in committee.
Testimony will be given by two Medical Doctors via teleconference. Plus, there will be numerous other frontline healthcare workers from around the state in attendance and may be asked to speak as well.
The first doctor to speak will be Dr. Richard Amerling, M. D., Associate Medical Director of America’s Frontline Doctors, and a licensed nephrologist who has been practicing for 30 years. At the height of the pandemic in New York, he was working with the earliest and sickest COVID patients. What he saw firsthand did not match the media’s reporting.
The second doctor to speak will be Dr. Alvin H. Moss, M.D., Director of the West Virginia University Center for Health Ethics and Law at the West Virginia University Health Sciences Center. His personal interests include being a legislative advocacy for patients’ rights to self-determination.
The bills deal with several health-related issues such as the use of Ivermectin for COVID treatment, banning masks and vaccine mandates, etc.
A list of the bills along with the lead sponsor include HB2783, “Vaccine Medical Exemptions,” sponsored by Brandon Steel, R-Raleigh; HB3197, “Vaccine Religious Exemptions,” sponsored by Laura Kimble, R-Harrison; HB4298, “Ban Covid-19 Vaccine Mandates,” sponsored by Roger Conley, R-Wood; HB4030, “Immunity Protection,” sponsored by Buck Jennings, R-Preston; HB4031, “Ban the Mask Mandates,” sponsored by Roger Conley, R-Wood; HB4309, “Allow Certain Drugs to Treat Covid-19,” sponsored by Guy Ward, R-Marion; HB4320, “Equal Treatment for Natural Immunity,” sponsored by Kathie Crouse, R-Putnam; HB4455, “Allow Use of Ivermectin,” sponsored by Chris Pritt, R-Kanawha.
Other Delegates who are co-sponsors of several of the bills and are helping with the event are Mark Dean, R-Mingo; Joe Jeffries, R-Putnam; Todd Longanacre, R-Greenbrier; Margitta Mazzocchi, R-Logan; Pat McGeehan, R-Hancock; Chris Phillips, R-Barbour; Tony Paynter, R-Wyoming; and the list is growing.
Forum members are hoping to broadcast the event live on audio and if successful, those interested may be able to listen to the forum by going to the West Virginia Legislature website; click on “House” and on the dropdown go to video/audio. Once on that page, they can scroll down to the Government Organization Committee room.
The forum is open to the public and news media is encouraged to attend.
