Australian Politicians, Bureaucrats Used COVID to Destroy Legal Protections for Patients

Original article posted on LifeSite News

In the Australia that existed before Covid-19, doctors could be trusted to regard their relationship with patients as strictly private and confidential. It was considered a cornerstone of professional integrity.  

That Australia is no longer in evidence. When it comes to the so-called vaccines, privacy is no longer thought worth protecting in the work force, when attending cafes or restaurants, or when attending a doctor’s surgery. Many general practitioners will not even treat patients in person unless they have been inoculated. Some hospitals force unjabbed relatives to stay outside.  

There were supposed to be legal protections. The Federal Privacy Act says health information is considered “one of the most sensitive types of personal information … [requiring] extra protections around its handling.” There were supposed to be professional standards. The Australian Medical Association states that “privacy protection and confidentiality of health information is essential for quality health care.” There is even an amendment to the Constitution – something that is very rarely successful – which implies the importance of protecting the doctor-patient relationship. 

So, what happened? An important presentation by the former barrister Julian Gillespie to a Federal cross-party committee has revealed how bureaucratic sleight of hand and political deception were used to blackmail doctors into giving up the most basic principles of their profession: the protection of their patients’ right to confidentiality, the right to informed consent, and the imperative to provide personalised medicine.  

Doctors have become more of a menace to patients than a protector of their interests, at least when it comes to the so-called vaccines. If any well-informed patient wants to discuss the risks of what is effectively participating in a trial of an untested drug, doctors will give them very short shrift, often becoming very aggressive. 

Doctors are scared. The reason, as Gillespie explained, becomes clear in a position statement delivered by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) on March 9, 2021 which “effectively [places a] jackboot on informed consent, snuffing out that legal right within this country – and indeed they put their jackboot on the sanctity of the patient-doctor relationship. If a medical doctor with years of experience began to question the efficacy or safety of these drugs, by that position statement they were immediately to be referred to as an anti-vaxxer or an individual providing misinformation, having no regard to their expertise.”  

Who are the people issuing these brutal edicts? According to Gillespie, the board of AHPRA is composed of two social workers, one educator, one accountant, one physiotherapist, one psychiatrist, one mathematician, and three lawyers. There are no scientists and no medicos, and yet they are making scientific and medical pronouncements.

“They saw fit to tell every qualified doctor in this country that if you don’t toe the government line we would deregister you, suspend you, or place conditions on your practice,” Gillespie said. 

AHPRA was created through a little-known agreement between the federal, state and territory governments. It is completely unaccountable, beyond the reach of both the Federal parliament and judicial review. When AHPRA was asked, through a Freedom of Information request, to provide its reasoning for strong-arming doctors, the reply was that it was not a commonwealth agency, and so did not have to.  

It gets worse. The prime minister, Scott Morrison, is fond of implying that he is against mandates, which he described as un-Australian. But he has suggested that his hands were tied because state governments were in charge of health. He is lying. Gillespie points out that the Federal government was behind everything done by the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC), which is the only body that can affect AHPRA.

“People aren’t aware that the Federal government was responsible for the state and territory-based mandates, social distancing rules, masking rules, contact tracing, quarantining, and isolation rules because it was run by the AHPPC,” Gillespie stated.  

The Federal government handed out a massive $7 billion to state governments so they could implement the appalling and ineffective mandates of the last two years.

“Premiers ran back to their states and territories and started to implement as many items as they could. They knew the science but instead wanted to take the cash that Morrison was offering them,” Gillespie declared.  

The has been little independent assessment and thinking in Australia. Authorities have instead slavishly followed the often contradictory, and certainly unreliable, dictates from the World Health Organisation and other bodies like America’s Food and Drug Administration.  

That is bad enough, but there has also been no basic diligence. Gillespie claims that the intensity of vaccine batches in Australia has varied wildly, yet the authorities did nothing.

“The TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) has tested batches in this country and the variants have been 81.3 per cent down to 55.7 per cent. A recipient of an mRNA above 72 per cent is essentially getting a toxic dose … we have never seen such instability in drugs,” he said.   

Most insidious of all is the way that politicians and bureaucrats have exploited Australia’s federalist structure to ensure that their brutal attack on the citizens and doctors remains unaccountable. Australians once thought of themselves as mostly decent people with practical common sense. The last two years have shown that those who govern us are anything but.  

Gillespie is bringing an action in the Federal court alleging that revelations of fraud in the vaccine trials by the whistle blower Brooke Jackson, which were published in the British Medical Journal, should have been addressed “under the pharmaco-vigilance duties of the TGA.”  

He says that, as a matter of Australian law, if fraud is suspected to have touched a decision, then it must be suspended immediately and investigated. We wish him well. But is Australia even a country of laws anymore? Or is it a country of evil bureaucrats aided and abetted by dishonest politicians?
