I was reading "World Magazine" again this weekend when I happened on an article written by a Dr. Matt Anderson in the June 20, 2009 issue, page 62.
Anderson, writing about the political/moral/ethical influence the American College of OB/GYN is bringing to bear on OB/GYN board candidates says the following: "Of course, we doctors don't take Hippocrates' Oath any longer and haven't for decades. New doctors recite a much changed charge filled with superficial, contemporary language, if they recite anything at all. Hippocrates' Oath has been relegated to the dustbin of modern ethical thought. 'I will neither give a deadly drug to anybody if asked for it, nor will I make a suggestion to this effect, Similarly I will not give a woman an abortive remedy," it reads.
"The legalization of abortion in America meant the Oath was out. But even with abortion legalized physicians could still practice according to their consciences. The American College of OB/GYN, however, threw down the gauntlet in November 2007 with its Ethics Statement 385, which defined any OB/GYN doctor who did not perform or order for abortion as unethical. The American Board of OB/GYN quickly followed with a new requirement that an OB/GYN doctor had to agree with the ethics of the College to pass the OB/GYN boards....
"Peter Singer, Professor of Bioethics at Princeton advocates infanticide when he writes, 'killing a disabled infant is not morally equivalent to killing a person. Very often it is not wrong at all."
There is an impassable gulf between the professional humanism of Singer and the Law of God. Obviously, there is nothing sacred nor nothing immoral when humanists, agnostics, atheists, and ignostics leave God out of the ethical/moral equation.
I am astounded that those who advocate the murder of infants (the commandment is better translated, "You shall not murder,") have the audacity to invoke and vote their paganistic plans under the umbrella of "Ethics". This is not ethics. This is the outworking of a politically motivated agenda by irreligious unethical politicians/physicians who have a theory of ethics but who lack understanding of the value of each life.
Thinking about the issue, might it also be true that the "Ethic" of Singer (and others of similar mind) and the American College of OB/GYN are advocating and practicing a medical variation of "cleansing," not dissimilar to that practiced in Germany under Adolf Hitler in his quest for a superior race?
The American College of OB/GYN has abrogated its historical, sacred duty and bowed to the pressures and objectives of putrified, humanistic, political objectives of social engineering.
Christ has said; "Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he would drown in the depths of the sea." [Matthew 18:6] [See also Mark 9:42 and Luke 17:2 for comparison] .God also says; "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you..." [Jeremiah 1:5].
It's hard to do...but think on these things and if you know of a countercourse of action...take it, say it, do it. e.c.
