The FDA has made a disturbing move towards medical tyranny by removing the requirement to get informed consent for what they call “minimal risk” studies.

Children’s Health Defense says Big Pharma will abuse new informed consent policy

Informed consent is the ethical term that describes a patient’s right to be given full understanding of a medical intervention, including all potential risks, before agreeing to receive it.

The Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) claims the policy change will provide cost savings and healthcare advances. 

The alteration will allow institutional review boards (IRBs) to waive informed consent requirements when they determine there is minimal risk in clinical trials.

“FDA believes the amendment provides appropriate safeguards to protect the rights, safety, and welfare of the human subjects participating in such clinical investigations,” the document reads. 

But several critics of the development are condemning the development. On social media, US Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr called it a “direct violation of the Nuremberg Code”

Kennedy, who’s also the chairman-on-leave of Children’s Health Defense, further stated that this change means “researchers can experiment on you without your knowledge or permission, so long as they claim that what they are testing is safe.”

Doctors worry Big Pharma will abuse new policy

Dr. Lyons-Weiler, a systems biologist and geneticist said that the likelihood of Big Pharma abusing this new ruling is high. 

He stated the ruling is “wrong in every way possible when it comes to the culture of informed consent and human rights and medical rights.”

In December 2022, one of Pfizer’s Independent Data Safety Monitoring Board members admitted in court that she was on the pharmaceutical company’s payroll. 

“Pfizer pays me to evaluate the safety of the vaccines because I’m an expert. So, I do get paid to do the work that I’ve been doing, but I’ve been doing the work conscientiously and comprehensively,” she said.
