The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) has put out an action alert urging Americans to contact their members of Congress to support a bill, sponsored by Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX), that would end U.S. taxpayer funding of the World Health Organization (WHO).

Send a message to your members of Congress, with just one click here, asking them to support HR 419, the No Taxpayer Funding for the World Health Organization (WHO), which seeks to stop U.S. taxpayer dollars from funding the WHO in the wake of the Biden administration’s plan to turn over U.S. health sovereignty to the global health organization.

AAPS observed there are two concerns presented to all Americans right now:

[T]here are efforts underway to double-down on failed WHO leadership with a proposal to create a new pandemic treaty that could hand international regulators more tools to promulgate protocols and procedures which will by far do more damage than good.

In addition, the WHO is set to consider questionable amendments, proposed by the Biden Administration, to existing International Health Regulations (IHR) that appear to expand WHO authority while limiting nations’ ability to contravene objectionable WHO actions. While certain analysts offer somewhat benign rationale for the changes under consideration, others warn of dire consequences for medical freedom and national sovereignty. The exact ramifications may be ambiguous, but what is clear is the need for the U.S. to disengage from this international body with interests contrary to what is best for patients and our nation.

Regarding the amendments, virologist Dr. Robert Malone told Steve Bannon at War Room, “This is one of those things that sounds like science fiction.”

“It’s hard to believe that the president of the United States and his administration are intentionally undermining the Constitution, but that’s what it is, as far as I’m concerned,” Malone added, explaining how the Biden administration’s amendments to the WHO’s IHR are scheduled to be voted upon May 22-28 at the World Health Assembly, months before the 2022 midterm elections:

There has been a direct attempt with a letter on January 18, with no public awareness from the United States, to the World Health Organization, proposing a series of rule changes. In parallel, there [were] actions in Congress that will essentially allow the president to sign a treaty without congressional authorization. Furthermore, in parallel, there was action taken in in the World Health Organization to breach their normal period of review and approval for countries from an 18-month period to a six-month period. What this means is that this will get rammed through … the American political system and the World Health Organization before the November midterm elections.

Independent researcher James Roguski also provides a website to send comments to the Department of Health and Human Service’s Office of Global Affairs and the World Health Assembly.
