From Liberty Counsel Action:

On Friday, Liberty Counsel Action released an analysis of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) latest version of the “Pandemic Agreement” (aka Treaty) and the legal implications of one of the most critical global policy changes impacting national sovereignty in American history.

While this pandemic plan is a treaty, the Biden administration calls it an “agreement” or an “accord.” For the United States to enter a treaty, the Constitution requires the U.S. Senate to approve it with a two-thirds majority vote.

Joe Biden plans to unilaterally place America under the global authority of the WHO. Biden is following in the footsteps of George W. Bush and Barack Obama. In his second term, Bush made international health care a priority. In 2005, Bush unilaterally signed America on to the substantially revised International Health Regulations (IHR), arguing he had authority to do so because the original WHO Constitution was adopted in 1948.

Barack Obama unilaterally signed America on to the Paris (Climate) Agreement, arguing he had the authority because in 1992, under the presidency of George H.W. Bush, the U.S. Senate ratified the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. Now, the U.N. website clearly refers to the Paris Agreement as a “treaty” that is binding on the nations under international law. The U.S. is specifically listed as one of those nations.

This is the fifth version from the WHO that LCA has been closely monitoring. This Pandemic “agreement” establishes the WHO as the world authority by using enforceable language like “shall.” In this case, “shall” is legally binding terminology. This document states: “To implement the provisions in this Article, each Party shall …” (emphasis added).

The following are key points from the March 13, 2024, version of the World Health Organization’s draft of the Pandemic Agreement. Liberty Counsel Action’s full analysis is here. The full text of the treaty was originally published at this link (https://apps.who.int/gb/inb/pdf_files/inb9/A_INB9_3-en.pdf), and the revised version can be read here.

This treaty will do all of the following:

  • Establishing the WHO as the world authority with 164 uses of the legally binding language “shall” dictating actions of nation states.
  • Asserting the WHO’s control over any “risk” of international disease.
  • Creating digital health passports that can be shared internationally for vaccines, test results, and much more.
  • Creating health care as a right in a path to international socialized medicine.
  • Demanding “equity” in health care. This forces medical professionals to give priority to certain patients based on a set of predetermined classes (which could include anything such as race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, region, or any group identified by the WHO as “vulnerable”) while disadvantaging other patients based on these same criteria.
  • Requiring parties to exercise authority at “community levels.”
  • Controlling development and patents.
  • Implementing a “One Health Approach,” which means an integrated, unifying approach that aims to sustainably balance and optimize the health of people, animals, and ecosystems. It recognizes that the health of humans, domestic and wild animals, plants, and the wider environment (including ecosystems) is closely linked and interdependent.
  • Demanding standards of control over everything from plants to pets.
  • Controlling access to approved medicines and censoring non-mainstream treatments.
  • Creating an internationally controlled system of official medical laboratories and government-run experiment/testing centers.
  • Censoring “disinformation” and “misinformation.”
  • Forcing international surveillance.
  • Controlling “supply chains and logistics.”
  • Controlling water access along with sanitation and hygiene practices.
  • Mandating that medical staff and facilities participate in abortion, LGBTQ, forced “vaccinations,” and more without religious carve-outs or conscience protections.
  • Pushing taxpayer-funded pandemic vaccines and providing that vaccine manufacturers and distributors should be afforded legal immunity.
  • Forcing wealthy nations to finance other nations during health emergencies and beyond.
  • Mandating a two-year commitment with no withdrawals permitted during that time.
  • Provides for arbitration and reservations unless incompatible with the purpose of the agreement.

What is listed above is just the beginning. The WHO reserves the right to create further rules at any time.

This latest version of the WHO “Agreement” claims it was internally “published” on March 14, 2024; yet there has been a media blackout.

Liberty Counsel Action Chairman Mat Staver said, “We must not forget the extensive government overreach at the height of the pandemic. The level of control would be significantly worse with the World Health Organization at the helm. In America, we were able to fight back in the courts — and we won. But if the WHO gains control, the international court will have jurisdiction. The WHO, through this treaty/agreement, is a dangerous threat to our freedom.”
