Doctors, Over Prosecuted by Criminal Justice System,
No Longer Able to Practice Medicine   

 Brings Attention  to the Medical Maafa of Black Genocide 

Sickle Cell Patients Dying from the
Hysteria of the Opioid Crises in Hospitals

(Washington, DC) - A White Coat Doctors Protest Rally at the 
Department  of Justice (DOJ) , in Washington, DC, has been scheduled by
during  PAIN PATIENTS ADVOCACY WEEK, on Tuesday, April 22, 2018.

The protest rally will bring attention to the discriminatory over prosecution of black and other ethnic physicians of color by law enforcement, the criminal justice system and state medical boards. It will also shed light on the unfair and biased treatment of all physicians treating chronic pain patients who are opioid non-abusers.

"Black physicians and other physicians of color have been disproportionately over prosecuted by the criminal justice system when compared to white physicians." states Rev. Ronald V. Myers, Sr., M.D.,  Founder of  Black Doctors Matter (BDM) and the  American Pain Institute (API)"It is estimated that Black physicians, who are less than 2-3% of all physicians but, along with other doctors of color, are confronted with far to many law enforcement, criminal justice system and medical board arrests and investigations, resulting in a far too many adverse actions against these physicians throughout the nation."

The  War on Drugs by the government, camouflaged by false information concerning the causes of the "opioid crises" in America, has led to a  War Against Chronic Pain Patients who are opioid non abusers, and the compassionate physicians who treat them.

Rev. Dr. Myers, the first ordained and commissioned medical missionary serving America's poorest region, the Mississippi Delta, in the history of the African American church, is no longer able to provide health care in counties that have the lowest life expectancy of any counties in the nation.

He was arrested and criminally charged with violating narcotic prescribing laws for treating chronic pain patients in Roland, Oklahoma in 2014, by former Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, now EPA Director.

These false criminal charges against the Baptist medical missionary and historic chronic pain and sickle cell anemia treatment advocate were dropped a year later, leading to the loss of his medical license in four states, including Mississippi. 

Faced with a fine of $35,000.00 by the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs (OBNDD) and a demand to pay a $41,000.00 investigation fee by the Oklahoma State Medical Board, Rev. Dr. Myers has not been able to regain his medical license due to these financial hurdles.

"Our 30 year medical ministry to the poorest of the poor in America has come to an end because of government overreach and racism," states Rev. Dr. Myers, Founder & President of the Myers Foundation for Indigent Health Care and Community Development. "As the leading physician grass roots advocate for the poor, disenfranchised, sickle cell anemia and other chronic pain patients, I have been targeted by a government that continues to violate the constitutional rights of many doctors leading to unjust prison terms."

The government has destroyed the medical careers of many physicians by misapplying laws designed to prosecute "drug dealers" who maintain "drug cartels."

Drug dealers, not physicians, sell illegal and illicit drugs, including heroin, cocaine, crystal meth, fentanyl, etc., killing thousands from opioid overdoses. 

The criminalization of physicians has lead to the suffering and suicide of many victimized chronic pain patients who are opioid non abusers in need of compassionate medical care.

"The major cause of death from the 'opioid crises' are illegal drugs, not doctors' prescriptions," states Rev. Dr. Myers.  "Billions of dollars of assets from physicians have been ceased by the government by charging innocent doctors with racketeering, murder, dispensing narcotics for non-medical purposes, maintaining a dwelling for the purpose of dealing drugs, etc., because of treating patients with chronic pain who are opioid non-abusers, that the government falsely labels 'drug addicts'."

Rev. Dr. Myers, working in partnership with the World Sickle Cell Federation (WSCF), the National Juneteenth Medical Commission and the Coalition For the Humane Treatment of Sickle Cell (CHTOSC), is concerned about the decrease in life expectancy by patients diagnosed with sickle cell anemia. 

Hospital emergency room physicians and other care givers are mistreating sickle cell anemia patients in a life threatening "pain crises" because of the misinterpretation of the CDC Guideline for the Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain. This has been a contributing factor to the medical maafa of black genocide.

"We demand that congress investigate the immoral and punitive actions against physicians who treat chronic pain patients, who are opioid non-abusers," continues Rev. Dr. Myers. "Innocent physicians should be released from prison and our abusive government must work to restore the medical practices of falsely accused doctors. The death of far too many sickle cell anemia patients must also be scrutinized."

PAIN PATIENTS ADVOCACY WEEK, April 23-30, 2018, will also include a Congressional Briefing on Chronic Pain and a third "America's In Pain!" - MARCH ON WASHINGTON - "Silent No More!" chronic pain patients advocacy rally, in Washington, DC, at the U.S. Capitol.
