On Wednesday, we reported on a Texas deputy and father of 6, Jason Jones, who is hospitalized with Covid and on a ventilator. His wife, Erin, has been fighting the hospital in court for the right to have an outside doctor treat him with Ivermectin. That outside doctor happens to be Dr. Mary Bowden, who we reported Thursday had her admitting privileges revoked from a Houston hospital. Her crime? Spreading “disinformation” about Ivermectin even though she’s treated hundreds of patients successfully with the medication. Strange that the hospital took this action right after Dr. Bowden testified on Mr. Jones’ behalf.

Thursday, the court ruling which would have provided Dr. Bowden to treat Mr. Jones with Ivermectin, was overturned. The hospital, Texas Health Huguley, had appealed the court order on the basis that Dr. Bowden (mentioned above) did not have admitting privileges to the hospital. The hospital argued that the court did not have the authority to circumvent its policies by ordering admitting privileges without the doctor going through the standard process. The appellate court agreed and overturned the order of the lower court. The decision is significant because Ms. Jones would have to start all over again, but also find a doctor with admitting privileges at Texas Health Huguley, who’s willing to prescribe and treat with Ivermectin.
It must be said that Ivermectin is an FDA approved medication that has a safety profile to which even Tylenol cannot compare. It has been prescribed off-label to treat Covid in India and other countries with miraculous success. Prescribing a medication off-label is a common practice doctors use frequently to treat a condition with a medication that is intended for something else. For example, doctors prescribe Aspirin to those at risk of heart-attacks, even though it was not made for that purpose. Doctors are being restricted from practicing medicine as they were trained to do. Sharing their findings and experiences is considered “spreading “disinformation”.
Restricting “disinformation” is nothing more than censorship rebranded.
Friends and family organized a prayer rally for next Monday to both show support for the family, while making sure the hospital knows their lack of human decency and compassion will not go unnoticed:
Also, a GoFundMe fundraiser page set up for the family was shut down Wednesday without notice or warning because an update mentioned Ivermectin. The action of closing the fundraiser immediately was taken in an unforced and unprofessional manner that could have been addressed properly in a number of other ways. GoFundMe has garnered a reputation for which they’re known to be politically biased and hostile against conservative causes.

More from Emily Miller who originally broke the story:
GoFundMe removed the online fundraiser for the family of Texas Sheriff Deputy Jason Jones after his wife posted an update about her legal efforts to get Ivermectin.
GoFundMe said the content falls under the “prohibited conduct” section. The company gave no warning and deleted the link from its website. Jones is dying of COVID at Texas Huguley Hospital in Fort Worth. Since I first made their names public and linked to the fundraiser to help the Jones family, the GoFundMe account went from a couple thousand dollar to $36,000 in donations from around the country. The new fundraiser for the Jones family is at Give Send Go here.
Erin, who is a stay-at-home mother of six, texted me today, “I don’t know if I will get any of the donations?”
