22 AGs Oppose WHO Pandemic Treaty, Citing Threats to Sovereignty and Civil Liberties



A group of 22 state attorneys general (AGs) on Wednesday told President Joe Biden they oppose the federal government’s plans to grant the World Health Organization (WHO) greater powers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We will resist any attempt to enable the WHO to directly or indirectly set public policy for our citizens,” the AGs wrote in a letter organized by Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen.

The WHO will discuss drafts of its proposed pandemic agreement and amendments to the International Health Regulations (IHR) at the upcoming World Health Assembly, May 27 to June 1. The proposals aim to give the WHO more authority to prevent, prepare for and respond to pandemics.

The AGs argued that the proposed amendments would “transform the WHO from an advisory, charitable organization into the world’s governor of public health.”

They emphasized that the WHO lacks the authority to enforce its recommendations and that the U.S. Constitution reserves public health policy powers for the states, not the federal government.

They also said the amendments could pave the way for a “global surveillance infrastructure” because they ask the member states who sign the agreements to “cooperate, in accordance with national law, in preventing misinformation and disinformation.”

“This is particularly dangerous given that your administration pressured and encouraged social-media companies to suppress free speech during COVID-19,” the AGs stated.

This news comes after 49 U.S. Senators last week urged Biden to reject the WHO proposals and made it clear they would vote against them.

The U.K. government also announced on Wednesday it would not sign the WHO pandemic accord unless the agreement respected the U.K.’s national interests and sovereignty.

“This is HUGE!” wrote Dr. Meryl Nass in her Substack post, “22 Attorneys-General in the US have told Joe Biden that the WHO will not be making public policy in their states!”

Nass, a prominent critic of the proposed WHO amendments and founder of the Door to Freedom website, expressed gratitude for this outcome to those who called and wrote letters to their government representatives.

UK refuses to sign WHO pandemic treaty

The U.K. government has refused to sign the WHO’s pandemic accord, primarily objecting to the requirement to give away a fifth of its therapeutic resources during a pandemic, according to Reuters.

The WHO is currently negotiating a pandemic accord that, according to a draft, would ask wealthier nations to contribute more to assisting the global community during pandemics. This includes setting aside 20% of their tests, treatments and vaccines for the WHO to allocate to less affluent countries in times of crisis…
