(Manila) A member of the surgical team that performed a second operation on former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo at St. Luke’s Medical Center has revealed that her doctors may have been less than forthcoming with their statements regarding the nature of her operations.
“It’s true that she has a medical condition involving her spine but the solution they are trying isn’t quite what they told the media.” Dr. James Frederico said.
According to Frederico, the operations that have been performed on Arroyo so far are part of a plan to transplant the former president’s brain to a robot body. Frederico also claims the transplantation is part of a greater plan to restore Arroyo to the presidency in 2016.
“The constitution prevents any person from running for the presidency twice but.. a cyborg… is not a person.” the doctor explained.
Frederico’s revelation came shortly after Arroyo’s doctors announced that her second operation was not successful and that a third one would be necessary.
“The allegedly unsuccessful second operation is a ruse. They are just trying to justify the third operation which will finally move her brain to the robot shell.” the doctor explained.
Giant Peppershaker Robot
Frederico also provided parts of the blueprint which allegedly shows the robot body to be used by the former president.
“It looks like a giant peppershaker with a mechanical eyestalk mounted near the top. It also has a gun stick and a manipulator arm.” Frederico said.
Meanwhile, Dr. Davros Alek, the lead surgeon of the team that performed both operations on Arroyo denied all of Frederico’s allegations.
“Preposterous. There is no such thing as a Dalek… and if there were Daleks they would probably be friendly… and beautiful.” Alek answered after being confronted with Frederico’s claims.
Alek would not explain what he meant by ‘dalek’ but repeatedly denied that Arroyo’s operations had anything to do with brain transplantation.
Meanwhile, Frederico’s revelation has caused considerable concern in some civil society groups that claim a cyborg Arroyo could could theoretically run for president in 2016.
“The constitution only requires you to be ‘a natural-born citizen of the Philippines, a registered voter, able to read and write, at least forty years of age on the day of the election, and a resident of the Philippines for at least ten years immediately preceding such election’ to run for office. Cyborg Arroyo can be all of that.” Philippine Election Weekly People’s Election Watch (PEWPEW) spokesman Jarvy Manlapat said.
“The question is whether a person who has become a cyborg is the same person. The constitutional prohibition is for the same person to run for the office twice…” Philippine National State University of the Philippines (PNSUP) Professor Pedro Abrigo said.
Arroyo’s camp has declined to comment on the issue.
