The California State Legislature wants you to trust the government, not the experts

A bill that could strip healthcare professionals who disseminate COVID-19 “misinformation or disinformation” of their medical licenses passed the California State Assembly with a 53-20 vote Thursday, moving it forward to the state Senate.

California’s AB-2098, introduced by Assemblyman Evan Low, a Democrat, designates the promotion of COVID-19 misinformation as “unprofessional conduct” meriting disciplinary action by the Medical Board of California and the Osteopathic Medical Board of California.

Cited in the bill is a July 2021 statement from the Federation of State Medical Boards’ Board of Directors, which informed physicians that spreading “inaccurate COVID vaccine” information would put them at risk of losing their licenses. AB-2098 would make that statement California law.

“Major news outlets have reported that some of the most dangerous propagators of inaccurate information regarding the COVID vaccines are licensed health care professionals,” the bill reads.

Aren’t we supposed to trust the experts?
