PMA suspends hayden kho on the katrina halili-hayden kho sex scandal – what for?
i don’t understand why the Philippine Medical Association suspended hayden kho. the reason is “conduct offensive to the profession”.
what was the conduct offensive to the profession? hayden kho had sex and videotaped it. he did that as a human being. he may have an unusual way of enjoy sex, video taping it, but that does not make it offensive. it’s a personal preference.
hayden kho did not have sex and most specially did not video tape it as an act of his prodession as a doctor nor did he use his profession to lure the other woman to have sex with him and to video tape it.
we are scandalized by what happened because the video recording was made public and senator revilla made a big deal of it. it was like porn released to the general public. but the release of the video recording was not done by dr. kho, someone else did it.
the possible fault of hayden kho was the charge that the woman in the video, katrina halili did not know their sex act was being recorded and no permission was sought from her to record it.
that fault has nothing to do with the practice of dr. kho’s medical profession. it is a legal matter but certainly not a matter for the PMA. again, the alleged deception occurred not because of kho’s abuse or use of his medical profession.
kho did not tarnish the medical profession, he only tarnished his personal reputation. we now know as a human being kho is a jerk.

MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine Medical Association (PMA) has suspended Dr. Hayden Kho Jr. for a year for “conduct offensive to the profession,” his lawyer, Lorna Kapunan, told the Philippine Daily Inquirer Thursday.
“We were called to a hearing on September 2 by the PMA ethics committee to inform us of their decision to suspend my client’s membership for one year,” she later elaborated in a text message to the Inquirer.
Kapunan added, “My client respects the decision.”
This was echoed by Kho himself who said he would not contest PMA’s decision.
“I respect their decision … I’m happy with whatever is given to me. I’m actually ready for anything,” he said.
Kho was with Kapunan at the launching of the White Ribbon Day campaign. He even had a white ribbon pinned on his shirt.
The PMA started investigating Kho after actress Katrina Halili asked the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) to revoke Kho’s license and ban him from practicing medicine, saying he was a disgrace to the medical profession.
