Doctors who would refuse treatment to those who haven't received the Covid vaccination would "set a dangerous precedent and shatter fundamental tenets of medical practice," a physician warned.

"An insidious sentiment has begun metastasizing throughout the United States and Britain, expressed by politicians, pundits, and – most disturbingly – by physicians themselves: that the unvaccinated who contract Covid-19 should be denied medical care," R. M. Huffman, a Texas-based practicing physician and author, wrote for on Sept. 5.

Huffman cited some disturbing trends that "should terrify you." Those include:

Former Missouri Democrat Sen. Claire McCaskill has proposed raising the insurance rates of the unvaccinated; an emergency medical physician in Arizona responds to a video clip of people unmasked in a grocery store with a message, 'Let ‘em die'; a liver surgeon at Massachusetts General suggests that declining a Covid vaccine should be treated by doctors as a functional Do Not Intubate/Do Not Resuscitate order.
