The Texas Medical Board (TMB) wants to revoke the medical license of Dr. Mary Talley Bowden for using an unapproved therapy of treating covid patients with ivermectin. In a private hearing they offered her as “plea deal” if she would agree she was wrong, pay a $5,000 fine, and take remedial medical education.
Bowden refused their offer, saying “everyone of the 5,500 covid patients I treated recovered. None died. The same can’t be said for those who received the approved therapy of waiting until they are deathly sick before going to a hospital where they are put on ventilators until they either recover or die–as more than half did.”
The TMB is particularly aggrieved over the case of Tarrant County Deputy Sheriff Jason Jones who survived after his wife covertly applied ivermectin paste to his skin. TMB member Dr. Julius Noe pointed out that “neither the hospital nor the doctor assigned to Jones’ case approved this treatment, a court ruled that the hospital could not be forced to allow this treatment while the patient was on the premises. Neither could the patient be released in his precarious condition. His resulting recovery violated essential protocols.”
Noe admitted that “there is no evidence that Dr. Bowden was aware of Mrs. Jones actions. However, she did recommend ivermectin to Mrs. Jones and is, therefore, an accessory in her criminal conduct. We have already adjudicated the case and delineated the appropriate punishment. Dr. Bowden’s demand for a public hearing is an unwarranted attempt to embarrass TMB by inviting the public to second-guess our medical decisions.”
In related medical news, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) barred members of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists (AAPLOG) from hosting a booth at the ACOG conference this week. Ironically, the theme of this year’s conference is “Building Bridges: Creating Connection in Medical Education.” ACOG CEO Dr. Maureen Phipps defended excluding AAPLOG from the conference, saying “preventing a pro-life cult from occupying scarce space and promulgating noxious ideas is necessary if we want to protect the integrity of medical science.”
