A Maine medical licensing board on Jan. 12 suspended Dr. Meryl Nass' medical license for 30 days and ordered her to undergo a neuropsychological evaluation on Feb. 1.
The board accused Nass, a member of the Children's Health Defense scientific advisory board, of spreading "misinformation regarding the SARS CoV-2 pandemic and the official public health response calling for vaccinations."
The board concluded Nass, who has practiced medicine in Maine for 41 years, "constitutes an immediate jeopardy to the health and physical safety of the public."
In an interview with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. on "RFK Jr. The Defender Podcast," Nass explained why she's willing to lose her medical license to fight back against "government-directed" healthcare and the push to discredit and delicense independent physicians who treat patients outside of huge healthcare systems.

"If you have a system where there are 100 doctors and 500 nurses, nobody knows you and nobody is responsible ... that seems to be what we're dealing with now. And I don't like it. And I'm happy if it's necessary for me to lose my license, to fight this ... This has to stop ... my profession is being destroyed from the inside and I don't want to stand for it."
When Nass - a leading expert on anthrax, anthrax vaccines and biological weapons - first began researching COVID treatments, she discovered chloroquine drugs were highly effective when used early.
The Chinese were using them early on, Nass explained. "They told us in February of 2020, that chloroquine was one of their best drugs. They had 20 clinical trials and it was easy to obtain - until Trump said it was a good drug."
Suddenly, at the end of March 2020, "all sorts of measures were taken" in the U.S. and other countries to suppress the drug's availability and "give it a black mark" to stop people from using it, Nass said.
Referring to the censorship of information about effective early treatments for COVID, Nass said she's, "never seen anything like this."
Nass also criticized the "dreadful guidelines" directing medical professionals to tell patients to "go home, don't do anything except Tylenol and ibuprofen until your lips are blue and then show up in the ER, and then we'll admit you and give you oxygen and maybe remdesivir."
Nass chose to not follow those guidelines but instead do what she's always done - provide the safest, most effective treatments she could find, which in the case of COVID, included prescribing ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine.
Nass has never once in her long career been accused or charged with malpractice, she said, and the Maine board's latest action against her is not based on a single complaint to the board by a patient.
Kennedy praised Nass' expertise as a physician and researcher, and her willingness to take a stand.
Referring to the Hippocratic Oath taken by all physicians, Kennedy told listeners the doctor-patient relationship is "sacred."
"That obligation of the doctor is to the patient. It is not to the state. It is not to any outside institution. And this is recognized in our law ... There's a doctor-patient privilege .. . It is the central basis of Western medicine for 2,500 years. And now you have these technocrats, like Tony Fauci, who are saying, we're gonna change that relationship. ...The obligation of the doctor is not to the patient. The obligation is to the state. The doctor is an instrument of state policy. And once you make that decision, medicine is no longer met."
Kennedy urged listeners to write to the members of the Maine Board of Licensure in Medicine expressing support for Nass before her next hearing on Feb. 11. Maine board member email addresses are listed here.
