Stop the Sellout of US Sovereignty to the WHO

Email Message

As my elected representative or appointed public servant, you are accountable to me and other Americans whose lives may be affected by decisions taken by the Congress and the Executive Branch agencies it oversees. Your Constitutional duty and obligation are to ensure American interests at all times. The same is not true of unaccountable private and publicly funded foreign organizations like the World Health Organization (WHO).

So, it is appalling to me that the Biden administration is not only going along with, but has actually initiated, the greatest voluntary surrender of our national sovereignty since our Republic was founded. As things stand now, at a meeting of the World Health Assembly in Geneva, Switzerland between the 22nd and 28th of May, U.S.-proposed amendments will be considered for adoption, amendments that would materially alter the existing, Senate-approved International Health Regulations Treaty.

The changes would make the Director-General of the WHO the sole arbiter of what is a “public health emergency of international concern” and dictate and enforce how our government and others must respond to it. The term, “Public Health Emergency,” is ill-defined and could include not only a viral pandemic, but also a rise in crime rates, climate change, or any other issue that arguably may affect “public health.” Further, the attempt to slip this surrender of sovereignty through quietly as amendments constitutes an attempt to subvert the treaty process, thus performing an end-run around our constitutional treaty-making process and the legislatures of the world.

Such a surrender of life-and-death decisions to a wholly unaccountable international bureaucracy and its Chinese-compromised leader would be unacceptable to me under any circumstance – and it must be for you, my elected or appointed representative, as well. It is especially true given the WHO’s appalling record of subordinating sound public health policies to the demands of the Chinese Communist Party that has been evident in the Covid-19 pandemic.

I call upon you to act immediately to block this imminent and appalling surrender of our national sovereignty.

Thank you!
