Texas "Medical" Association attempting to force Chiropractors out of business...AGAIN!!!

"So not only is this trade of ours in danger of falling into disrepute, but also the temple of the great goddess Diana may be despised and her magnificence destroyed, whom all Asia and the world worship."
Acts 19:27

Gregory Johnshon is a Houston-based chiropractor with a popular YouTube Channel.  We first discussed his advocacy with the Texas Chiropractic Association, in the context of the Texas "Medical" Association's longstanding war on Chiropractors, back in August.  There have been several developments in the past few weeks, none of them good for freedom of choice for health care consumers:


  • Texas Chiropractors are under assault by the Texas Medical Association.
  • TMA filed (another) lawsuit to shut down chiropractors over a year ago; the appeal in that lawsuit will be heard next week in Austin.
  • Hack Travis County Democrat judge ruled in favor of TMA in the first round; the appeal will be heard in the Third Court of Appeals.
  • "I have given thousands of dollars and will continue to give thousands more [to the Chiropractic Association."
  • "We are in jeopardy of losing our professional rights in the state of Texas."
  • TMA is seeking to alter scope of practice laws to require a recommendation from a medical doctor before you could see a chiropractor.
  • "The Evil TMA."
    • Note: Have we mentioned how much we love this guy?!?
  • "The Texas Medical Association is trying to take away your right, as a come and see a chiropractor."
  • Big Pharma supporting TMA.
  • "The TMA is trying to monopolize health care in the State of Texas."
  • If TMA is successful in Texas, it will happen in other states.
Bottom Line: Our primary objection to the Texas "Medical" Association will always be their rabid support for abortion, euthanasia in hospitals, and Obamacare.  But they do a lot of other bad things.  This assault on choice and consumer freedom cannot succeed.
