AUSTIN, Texas  (LifeSiteNews) — Dr. Peter McCullough, a prominent physician and expert on COVID-19, is being sued by Texas-based health system Baylor Scott & White (BSWH) after appearing on the Stew Peters Show to warn Americans against the COVID vaccines.

Dr. McCullough is being sued for having allegedly misrepresented himself as a spokesperson for BSWH during an interview in which he expressed his expert opinion and listed his concerns on the coronavirus vaccines. The lawsuit coincides with a decision by BSWH to mandate vaccination for all their 40,000 employees.

McCullough is in fact a prominent graduate of Baylor University and worked as a Vice Chair of Internal Medicine at Baylor University Medical Center from January 2014 until February 2021. Though he himself did not claim association with Baylor during the interview, his former title was displayed on screen during the Stew Peters show, and this resulted in the lawsuit.

Stew Peters himself has since then reacted on his program and denounced the lawsuit as being: “nothing less than an attack on Dr. McCullough’s character meant to discredit [him].”

Peters also pointed out that Dr. McCullough’s association with Baylor is public knowledge.

“As a current active member of medical staff for both Baylor University Medical Center and Baylor Heart and Vascular hospital with his office on campus, Dr. McCullough is associated on public internet platforms and groups with countless links and mentions to BSWH,” he said, adding that the Dr. McCullough is also a “prominent graduate from Baylor with an endowed scholarship in his name” and is “commonly associated as a point of pride for Baylor” who “kept him up on their website until mid-July creating a whole bunch of confusion with hundreds of media personnel.”

Peters acknowledged fault in the editing mistake which allowed BSWH to file the lawsuit: “We made an error, and as a result of our error (…), he is being sued.”

Dr. McCullough has since issued a statement to Health Freedom Fund insisting that he has “not falsely represented [himself] as a spokesperson for Baylor Scott and White nor has [he] publicly claimed past senior leadership roles at any prior institution.   With >800,000 third party internet profiles and ~16 M hits in Google, [Dr. McCullough’s] views have always been represented as [his] own and not those of any organization.”

This is not the first time that Dr. McCullough, the most published author in his field and one of America’s leading physicians on the early treatment of COVID-19, has suffered serious consequences simply for expressing his expert view on the response to COVID-19. In 2020 a video he published on YouTube discussing early treatment for the disease was censored for “violating the terms of the YouTube community.”

In a recent address to Texas Senate Health and Human Service Committee, McCullough condemned this censorship, which he deemed a “near total block of information” about a treatment that could have reduced COVID-19 fatalities by 85%.

McCullough was already then expressing skepticism over the COVID vaccine, stating that, “given an 80% level of herd immunity, broad vaccination has no scientific, clinical, or safety rationale.”

This new lawsuit appears to be yet another way to censor and discredit one of the few physicians who dares to contradict the mainstream media narrative on COVID vaccines. The real motive of the lawsuit appears even more evident as it coincides with the imposition of a vaccine mandate on BSWH’s employees.

“They announced the lawsuit on the day they announced the ill-advised COVID-19 mandatory vaccination program for their 40,000 employees, many of whom do not want this shot,” Stew Peters stated.

Peters ended his reaction video by stressing that this lawsuit and the constant censuring and persecuting of prominent scientists such as Dr. Peter McCullough could, in addition to being an attack on free speech, have serious consequences on public health

“Free speech and scientific discourse are the bedrock of progress in medicine, and Baylor Scott & White’s ill-advised lawsuit is an attack on civil liberties with serious implications on public health and policy far beyond a lawsuit,” the podcast host said.

People of goodwill can disagree about the safety, efficacy and religious implications of a new vaccine for the coronavirus.

But, everyone should agree on this point:

No government can force anyone who has reached legal adulthood to be vaccinated for the coronavirus. Equally, no government can vaccinate minors for the coronavirus against the will of their parents or guardians.

Please SIGN this urgent petition which urges policymakers at every level of government to reject calls for mandatory coronavirus vaccination.

Fear of a disease - which we know very little about, relative to other similar diseases - must not lead to knee-jerk reactions regarding public health, nor can it justify supporting the hidden agenda of governmental as well as non-governmental bodies that have apparent conflicts of interest in plans to restrict personal freedoms. 

The so-called "public health experts" have gotten it wrong many times during the current crisis. We should not, therefore, allow their opinions to rush decision-makers into policies regarding vaccination.

And, while some people, like Bill Gates, may have a lot of money, his opinion and that of his NGO (the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation) - namely, that life will not return to normal till people are widely vaccinated - should not be permitted to influence policy decisions on a coronavirus vaccination program.

Finally, we must also not allow the rush by pharmaceutical companies to produce a new coronavirus vaccine to, itself, become an imperative for vaccination.

Unwitting citizens must not be used as guinea pigs for New World Order ideologues, or Big Pharma, in pursuit of a vaccine (and, profits) which may not even protect against future mutated strains of the coronavirus.

And it goes without saying that the production of vaccines using aborted babies for cell replication is a total non-starter, as the technique is gravely immoral.

However, if after sufficient study of the issue, a person who has reached the age of majority wishes to be vaccinated with a morally produced vaccine, along with his children, that is his business.

But we cannot and will not permit the government to make that decision for us.

Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition, urging policymakers at all levels of government to reject mandatory coronavirus vaccination.

** While LifeSite opposes immorally-produced vaccines using aborted fetal cell lines, we do not have a position on any particular coronavirus vaccines produced without such moral problems. We realize many have general concerns about vaccines, but also recognize that millions of lives have been saved due to vaccines.
