The People’s Treaty
To Preserve Our Health Related Human Rights
We the people of the world agree that certain human rights are inalienable and non-negotiable, even in times of extreme emergency.
These rights include, but are not limited to the following…
Governments do not get to suspend human rights because of “emergencies.”
Regardless of the scope and/or severity of any disease outbreak or pandemic, human rights remain inalienable and may not be abridged.
The good of the nation is the sum total of the benefits enjoyed by all its people.
The rights of nations, states, provinces, groups and organizations are subservient to inalienable human rights.
Bureaucrats do not have the right to deny potentially life-saving medications to anyone.
The right to try is an inalienable right. Each and every human being, alone, or in consultation with the health care practitioner of their choice, has the inalienable right to choose the form of treatment that they wish to utilize in order to maintain or restore their health.
The right to refuse treatment is an inalienable right.
Bodily autonomy is sacrosanct and must ALWAYS be respected. No person, no organization and no governmental body has the right to demand that another person consume, inject or apply any treatment to their body.
Discrimination based on medical status is wrong.
No person, no organization and no governmental body has the right to place any form of restrictions that require healthy people to subject themselves to any form of treatment or test in order to enjoy their inalienable right to travel, work, seek education or gain access to public spaces or businesses to engage in commerce and to obtain goods and services.
Lockdowns and/or quarantines of healthy people are wrong.
All people who are ill with diseases that are transmissible have a moral obligation to separate themselves from other people, but other people must be allowed to visit with the ill person so long as proper personal protective equipment is utilized.
We demand complete transparency.
All depersonalized data from all clinical studies should be immediately available to everyone in the world to review in real time.
Everyone has the right to their own opinion.
Every person's experience is a valuable scientific observation. All human beings have the inalienable right to publicly express their opinion regarding the effectiveness (or lack thereof) of any treatment.
Guilt cannot be legislated or contracted away.
All manufacturers, distributors, sellers and administrators of health care products and/or procedures must be held liable for any and all damages caused by their products and services.
Government officials may start emergencies, but the people must be able to end them.
Speed can be an important factor in reacting to an emergency, but democratic principles demand that “We the People” have the right to determine when we believe the danger has passed.
WE THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD DEMAND THAT OUR RIGHTS BE RESPECTED AND OUR FREEDOMS BE HONORED.
WE VOW TO OPPOSE, WITH EVERY FIBER OF OUR BEING, ANY “PANDEMIC TREATY” PUT FORTH BY THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION THAT FAILS TO CLEARLY MAINTAIN OUR INALIENABLE HUMAN RIGHTS.

The patient has the right to considerate and respectful care.
The patient has the right to and is encouraged to obtain from physicians and other direct caregivers relevant, current, and understandable information concerning diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis.
Except in emergencies when the patient lacks decision-making capacity and the need for treatment is urgent, the patient is entitled to the opportunity to discuss and request information related to the specific procedures and/or treatments, the risks involved, the possible length of recuperation, and the medically reasonable alternatives and their accompanying risks and benefits.

The patient has the right to make decisions about the plan of care prior to and during the course of treatment and to refuse a recommended treatment or plan of care to the extent permitted by law and hospital policy and to be informed of the medical consequences of this action. In case of such refusal, the patient is entitled to other appropriate care and services that the hospital provides or transfer to another hospital. The hospital should notify patients of any policy that might affect patient choice within the institution.
The patient has the right to have an advance directive (such as a living will, health care proxy, or durable power of attorney for health care) concerning treatment or designating a surrogate decision-maker with the expectation that the hospital will honor the intent of that directive to the extent permitted by law and hospital policy. Health care institutions must advise patients of their rights under state law and hospital policy to make informed medical choices, ask if the patient has an advance directive, and include that information in patient records.
