Demand to Know Where Your Medical Data is Going: Will Your Doctor Protect It or Share it With the State
During the first week of April, Canadians held a two-day protest in Ottawa over Trudeau’s consistent tyrannical measures over all sectors of human freedom, from the destruction of privacy and control of speech on the Internet.
The event’s guest speaker was Doctor Mary O’Connor, who was previously interviewed by RAIR Foundation USA. O’Connor, a retired physician with over 50 years of experience, spoke about her battle with the College of Physicians and Surgeons at the CPSO in Canada.
Her struggle began when COVID-19 hit, and requests for exemptions from masks, PCR tests, and experimental gene therapies flooded in. Dr. O’Conner started writing exemptions but was eventually noticed by the CPSO, who demanded that she turn over the names of all the patients she had written exemptions, along with their charts. When she refused, the CPSO sent a team of investigators to seize her patient charts, but they could not find anything as Dr. O’Conner had already moved everything out of her office.
Despite being ordered by the college to cease writing exceptions, Dr. O’Connor persisted in doing so until her license was suspended on December 23, 2021. It appears that Dr. O’Connor did not receive the notice to stop writing exemptions in time to meet the deadline. She now wonders if this was intentional, as the notice arrived in her email after the deadline had already passed. Consequently, Dr. O’Connor was summoned to Ontario Superior Court on January 7, 2022.
Her case has received widespread attention and support from the public, with many people speaking out against the CPSO’s actions and defending her right to practice medicine as doctors have always done, based on their expertise and clinical experience.
Throughout her speech, Dr. O’Conner emphasized the importance of patient autonomy and the right to make informed decisions about one’s own health. She also spoke about the harm caused by coercion and the need for people to have access to accurate information to make informed decisions.
She advised people on how to protect their medical data from state intrusion. She suggests one way to do this is by checking with their physician and asking them to sign a statement promising not to surrender their medical files to the college. In addition, the college has recently given itself permission to access patient charts in case of an emergency. However, Dr. O’Conner warns that this could lead to sharing confidential information with the state. Therefore, taking proactive measures to keep medical data private is vital to safeguard one’s privacy and confidentiality.
Despite the challenges she has faced, Dr. O’Conner remains committed to standing up for the rights of her patients and advocating for medical freedom.
