This is a subject that I never thought we would have to deal with in America. Our society has devolved so far and has allowed the vilest and disgusting practices to proliferate.  Our so-called medical field has become anything but what medical doctors are supposed to practice which is saving lives.

I must include the Hippocratic Oath that all physicians declare so we can fully understand just how deep in the gutter this profession has allowed itself to fall.  Please understand that I am not talking about the entire medical community but a small portion that seems to think of just one thing and that’s how much money they can make without any regard as to how they make it or the negative effect their actions have on the people they are dealing with and society as a whole.  The oath is as follows: I swear to fulfill, to the best of my ability and judgment, this covenant:

I will respect the hard-won scientific gains of those physicians in whose steps I walk, and gladly share such knowledge as is mine with those who are to follow.

I will apply, for the benefit of the sick, all measures which are required, avoiding those twin traps of overtreatment and therapeutic nihilism.

I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug.

I will not be ashamed to say “I know not,” nor will I fail to call in my colleagues when the skills of another are needed for a patient’s recovery.

I will respect the privacy of my patients, for their problems are not disclosed to me that the world may know. Most especially must I tread with care in matters of life and death. If it is given me to save a life, all thanks. But it may also be within my power to take a life; this awesome responsibility must be faced with great humbleness and awareness of my own frailty. Above all, I must not play at God.

I will remember that I do not treat a fever chart, a cancerous growth, but a sick human being, whose illness may affect the person’s family and economic stability. My responsibility includes these related problems, if I am to care adequately for the sick.

I will prevent disease whenever I can, for prevention is preferable to cure.

I will remember that I remain a member of society, with special obligations to all my fellow human beings, those sound of mind and body as well as the infirm.

If I do not violate this oath, may I enjoy life and art, respected while I live and remembered with affection thereafter? May I always act so as to preserve the finest traditions of my calling and may I long experience the joy of healing those who seek my help. [1]

The part of the medical profession that I refer to are the so-called doctors that perform abortions.  This has become to be known, thanks to Democrats, as “women’s reproductive healthcare”.  Anyone who believes this does not have a functioning thought process.  What we are teaching the younger generation is we don’t have to take responsibility for our actions.  When I was growing up and a young girl got pregnant it was not a badge of honor.  There was talk about the girl and it wasn’t very flattering. Unfortunately, the boy was not treated the same even though it ‘takes two to tango’.  But that being said abortions were not easy to come by.  There had to be a reason other than ‘this is going to screw up my life right now’.  That was because my generation still understood the importance of that personal responsibility I spoke of earlier and we also understood the value of a life.  We were taught that if you wanted to act like an adult then you had to accept the responsibilities for your actions.  My mom had a saying that I’m sure most parents had back then and that was “You made your bed, now you have to sleep in it”.

Kids today don’t have an understanding of this concept.  I believe that a lot of this mentality began when they stopped giving out trophies for first, second and third place.  Everybody got the same trophy because they ‘participated’.  There was no emphasis on doing your best with a reward for the best job.  There was also no stigma for being last.  ‘Authorities’ didn’t want to hurt the feelings of those that were too lazy to work hard.  They actually gave them an excuse to be lazy lowlifes.  I brought this up because it shows how the general public has allowed itself to fall into a place where the only thing that is important is what makes us happy and what doesn’t interfere with our drive for personal edification.

Today there are many forms of birth control.  I understand that Catholics aren’t supposed to use them and that’s their right but if the rhythm fails and you get pregnant then you are going to be a parent.  But the figures for women who ‘accidentally’ got pregnant and aborted is a disgrace to what our society once was. Surveys indicated that the most common reason for having an abortion was that an unintended pregnancy would interfere with a woman’s education, work, or their ability to care for their dependents, at 74%. Numerous research also supports that when women have the ability to control when and how often they get pregnant is directly correlated to higher levels of educational attainment, better finances, and more healthy pregnancies and babies.

73% of abortion patients cite not being able to afford a child at the time, followed by not wanting to be a single parent or having relationship issues, at 48%. Four in ten surveyed abortion patients said they were finished having children, and one-third did not think they were ready for a child. Less than 1% said that a parent’s or a partner’s decision had any influence on whether or not they wanted an abortion. Young women more frequently cited that they were unable or unprepared to transition to motherhood, while older women had too many responsibilities to other dependents. [2]

You can see from these statistics that most women act irresponsibly which causes that situation to arise.  What is disgusting is the one person that is not responsible for the pregnancy is the one that pays the highest price for the irresponsible actions of another.  There is no better description of an innocent life than an unborn gift from God.  How the person carrying this gift can be so callous as to allow it life to be snuffed out because of selfishness is appalling.

Next week we will look at how abortionists are profiting from the careless actions of a few.
