In the News…

Senator Rick Scott of Florida introduced a bill that intends to limit the international powers of the World Health Organization (WHO) as President Biden’s administration prepared to propose amendments to the group’s International Health Regulations during the World Health Assembly in Geneva. 

Some legislators say the administration will hand over U.S. national sovereignty on matters of health to the WHO if the amendments are approved. They have similar concerns about an international treaty for pandemic preparedness agreed to by more than 250 heads of government and global agencies in March. 

“The WHO’s radical pandemic treaty is a dangerous globalist overreach,” Senator Scott said. “The United States of America must never give more power to the WHO. The WHO is a puppet for Xi Jinping, controlled by the Chinese Communist Party, and helped Beijing cover up the origins of COVID-19. We must quickly pass this bill to ensure that public health matters in the country remain in the hands of Americans, not globalist puppets working for Communist China.” 

The bill would require U.S. officials to oppose changes to the WHO charter until both chambers of Congress agree to adopt change in a joint resolution and prevent U.S. officials from being bound to orders or directives given by the WHO or anyone in its branches.
