The infiltration of medical schools with the DEI ideology has been extensive and very harmful. The Hippocratic oath no longer resembles at all the oath of the 20th century and is no longer focused on doing no harm and not procuring abortion or euthanasia but only concerned with "diversity" of ethnicity, race and sexual ideology. It is a tragedy and will result in significant harm which is the antithesis of what medicine should be. I will certainly write my representative to support H.R. 7725. God, have mercy on us!

Thank you for your comment and support of HR 7725. When leftists use the word "diversity," they do not mean diversity of race, sex or gender. They use "diversity" to mean conformity with woke Marxist ideology. A black conservative would not be considered diverse by the woke, for example. I have written a short summary of DEI in "Woke Word Games" at https://2026.substack.com/p/woke-word-games

Ordinarily, I would be against the government regulating the medical schools. But in reality the U.S. government has already nationalized essentially the whole healthcare system. as we learned in the COVID disaster.

The federal government and medical schools are examples of the many U.S. institutions that have been captured by Marxist ideology. DEI in medical schools violates the 14th Amendment and civil rights laws and is, therefore, illegal. Since our captured institutions are not responding appropriately, I think legislative action is required to get DEI out of medical schools. Some are calling this the counter-revolution.
