Hooray for the Republican legislators in the New Hampshire House of Representatives for striking a blow for medical freedom Thursday when they voted to make it easier for people to obtain ivermectin.
In a 183-159 vote, the House approved legislation permitting pharmacists to dispense ivermectin to treat COVID-19 and other sicknesses via standing order.
GOP Rep. Leah Cushman, the primary sponsor of the bill, explained, “A standing order is a prescriptive protocol written by a physician or nurse practitioner that allows a pharmacist to dispense a medication without an individual prescription,” WMUR-TV reported.
One of the most bizarre aspects about the whole COVID-19 pandemic is how Democrats and the medical establishment in D.C. have come out so strongly against the use of medications that doctors have found effective in treating the sickness.
“Because of this politicization, doctors are afraid to prescribe and pharmacies are afraid to dispense,” Cushman noted.
It seems we have at least moved beyond the stage of calling ivermectin a horse dewormer, as was the case with CNN and others when podcaster Joe Rogan said he had taken the drug last summer as part of his COVID-19 treatment regimen.
It is an anti-parasitic drug used in animals, but it is also employed widely by people to treat a variety of illnesses.
The Associated Press reported last month there are multiple studies ongoing seeking to determine how effective ivermectin is in treating COVID-19.
