In Brief:

Minnesota surgeon, Dr. Jeffery Horak, was fired by the Lake Region Medical Group for his comments at an October 11th school board meeting. Horak committed the sin of telling the school board that they should “honor [parents’] wishes” when it comes to whether or not their children go to school masked. The general surgeon was let go because his “views were no longer congruent with that of Lake Region Healthcare.”

The Background:

The left and the medical establishment aren’t interested in your job performance. They are mainly interested in making sure that you believe like they do. 

Medical doctors are being fired just for believing in freedom. 

Dr. Jeffery Horak, a doctor in Fergus Falls, MN, was fired from Lake Regional Medical Group after he made public comments about parental rights at a school board meeting.

Horak testified that the school board should allow parents to decide whether or not their children are masked at school because “it’s still their responsibility. It’s not yours. God gave it to them. Honor their wishes.”

Horak’s employer, Lake Regional Medical Group, gave him the option to resign or be terminated. Dr. Greg Smith, the president of the Medical Group Board, said, “To be clear, this was a decision that was made by Dr. Horak’s peers who serve on the Medical Group Board, not by Lake Region Healthcare, the community-based hospital where Dr. Horak practiced General Surgery.”

They are admitting that Horak was fired because his peers did not like his opinion.

Horak has received the support of the local community. Hundreds of community members showed up at a local park carrying signs saying “I stand with Dr. Horak” and “We need medical freedom.”

Notable Quotes:

“Who does God put in charge of these kids? Their parents. God gave each one of these kids… to their parents and they speak for them. They may be wrong, they may be dumb, they may be imperfect in their decisions. But it’s still their responsibility. It’s not yours. God gave it to them. Honor their wishes, either side of the fence.” - Dr. Jeffery Horak
