(LifeSiteNews) – A doctor’s license has been temporarily suspended following accusations that he spread “misinformation” about COVID, “inappropriate[ly]” reported post-jab adverse events, and used “inappropriate COVID-19 treatment.”
Dr. Patrick Phillips’ career as an emergency physician in Ontario came to a halt on May 3, the Epoch Times reported. For over a year the doctor had contradicted the medical establishment in his approach to COVID — both in practice and on social media, where he had had about 40,000 Twitter followers before his account was suspended.
Prescribing ivermectin to COVID patients, reporting adverse events following the COVID jab, and giving what the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) called “inappropriate” COVID-related medical exemptions, including mask exemptions, were all cited as examples of unprofessional conduct in a 2021 hearing notice issued by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) to its physicians and surgeons disciplinary tribunal.
The notice stated that Phillips was also accused of “making misleading, incorrect or inflammatory statements about vaccinations, treatments and public health measures for COVID-19” in his online communications between about “August 2020 and September 2021.”
Phillips had been boldly and repeatedly criticizing COVID-related health policy on social media. For example, according to CBC News, in a series of tweets on Sept. 25, Phillips compared COVID-related public health measures to the treatment of people with disabilities in Nazi Germany.
The news outlet added that he had also accused Ontario’s vaccine certificate system of being “illegal” and predicted that it would be used to “deny medical care, food, banking and shelter” to the unvaccinated.
As a result of his open dissent from established medical policy, in both word and practice, in September 2021, when he was issued his hearing notice, Phillips was barred from prescribing ivermectin and from providing exemptions for COVID-19 shots, face masks, and COVID testing.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to the new owner of Twitter, Elon Musk, asking him to reinstate LifeSiteNews' truth-telling Twitter accounts which have been suspended since early 2021.
After contentious negotiations, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has purchased Twitter, thereby transforming the tech giant into a private company.
A self-styled "free speech absolutist," Mr. Musk's entrepreneurial spirit may define his approach to governing Twitter, where, in the marketplace of ideas, the best ideas - not those aided by censorship - will naturally prevail among the competition.
Of course, there are limits to free speech. But, for too long, Big Tech giants (including, Twitter, Google, YouTube and Facebook) have subjected their conservative and Christian users to all forms of censorship, desperately trying to silence our voices.
So if, as it seems, Mr. Musk will level the playing field for conservatives and Christians and allow a true exchange of ideas to occur on his platform, then we look forward to our chance to re-engage on Twitter.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to the new owner of Twitter, Elon Musk, asking him to reactivate LifeSiteNews' truth-telling Twitter accounts which have been suspended since early 2021. They are:
These accounts have been blocked by the outgoing Twitter regime for more than a year for calling a ‘transgender woman’ (Assistant Secretary of Health, 'Rachel' Levine), a man, and for tweeting an article about the same person.
The article we tweeted makes mention of the troubling paradox of having a person who denies the basic science of the human anatomy be in an authoritative position in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), but does not cast aspersions or any other such “hate speech” against Levine, according to Twitter’s "rules."
It is our fervant hope that Mr. Musk intends to allow - rather than censor - our descriptions of reality as we know them to be true in regards to human sexuality, as well as in other areas of life.
Mr. Musk evidently understands how significant freedom of speech is to the functioning of a free society as he was quoted as saying that this deal is important for "the future of civlization."
LifeSiteNews believes that being able to spread the truth in charity is absolutely vital for the future of society, as the "truth shall make you free." (Jn 8:32)
And so, in order for us to charitably spread the truth far and wide, we now seek to re-engage on Twitter's public square.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition to Elon Musk, urging him to now reinstate LifeSiteNews' suspended Twitter accounts.

In a Twitter post that month, Phillips said COVID-19 testing is “not a harm-free procedure.” He cited the example of a young girl who received a nasal swab test in order to return to school; afterwards she bled from her nose and one of her eyes, the Epoch Times reported.
In an interview with BrightLight News published October 2021, Phillips explained why he spoke out on the harms of the standard COVID response to patients despite the risk he knew it posed to his own continued medical practice.
“This involuntary harm against patients is something I’m not willing to sell my soul for,” Phillips said. “I would not be able to live with myself as a physician if I just stood by silently watching patients being harmed.”
Phillips soon thereafter explained to LifeSiteNews that he saw harm being inflicted on patients in a variety of ways: through lockdown policies, coercion from physicians to get “vaccinated,”failure to disclose the potential long-term adverse effects of the jab, and denial of medical appointments to those who chose not to take the COVID inoculations.
He noted that while he wanted to keep his medical license, “There’s so much more at stake in this fight. I’m seeing society crumble. We’re losing all of our fundamental freedoms…the very basics of medical ethics, like free and informed consent, which were the bedrock of medicine up until 2020, are being thrown out.”
He added: “You realize there’s a lot more power actually in standing true to yourself and what you believe in, rather than trying to protect yourself and protect your career.”
Phillips said in a “closure letter” shared with The Epoch Times that the suspension came “without notice,” and that he is now prohibited from issuing prescription repeats, completing medical workups, and interpreting test results,.
He has taken the news in stride, however, commenting, “I sincerely believe that all that happens in our lives is for our highest spiritual growth and evolution. Through deep and sincere forgiveness of both self and others, every hardship we face is in fact a blessing of immense value,” he wrote.
