Do no harm. Tuesday August 26th, 2003
"In 1948 the Nuremberg trials were fresh in the public memory. These had demonstrated that some doctors had decided that certain human beings were of less value than others because of race, religion, handicap, age, infirmity etc., hence it was not unethical to experiment on and to kill them. The World Medical Association, to which the BMA was affiliated, aimed to ensure that doctors would never again be diverted from their proper function; but the traditional medical ethic is once again under attack. " quote taken from www.donoharm.org.uk/
Since 1948, men and women entering the medical profession have taken this oath:
At the time of being admitted as a member of the medical profession I solemnly pledge myself to consecrate my life to the service of humanity: I will give to my teachers the respect and gratitude which is their due; I will practice my profession with conscience and dignity; The health and life of my patient will be my first consideration; I will respect the secrets which are confided in me; I will maintain by all means in my power, the honor and the noble traditions of the medical profession; My colleagues will be my brothers: I will not permit considerations of religion, nationality, race, party politics or social standing to intervene between my duty and my patient; I will maintain the utmost respect for human life, from the time of its conception, even under threat, I will not use my medical knowledge contrary to the laws of humanity; I make these promises solemnly, freely and upon my honor... The Second General Assembly of the World Medical Association 1948 Quote taken from: www.donoharm.org.uk/gendecl.htm
Yet it is these same men and women who take the oath "... I will not permit considerations of religion, nationality, race, party politics or social standing to intervene between my duty and my patient; I will maintain the utmost respect for human life, from the time of its conception, even under threat, I will not use my medical knowledge contrary to the laws of humanity;..." that slaughter the most innocent and defenseless of all human life, the baby in the womb and the elderly.
Exodus 20:13, the Thou shalt not kill.
The word kill, as used here is the Hebrew word "ratsach." Ratsach translated into English means to break or dash in pieces, to kill or slay in an unjust manner, cold blooded unjust murder of the defenseless, never used in the killing of animals. The closest thing we in the USA do to the meaning of the Hebrew word "ratsach" is abortion and euthanasia. Isn't it ironic and sad to realize that the profession that violates the commandment Thou shalt not kill, is also the profession that takes an oath to: "maintain the utmost respect for human life, from the time of its conception".
You might say that I am painting all doctors, nurses and other medical practitioners with the same brush. You might point out to me that many doctors do not do abortions, that many nurses refuse to assist with abortions, and you would be right, but, let me ask you this: When was the last time you saw a doctor taking a stand against abortion? When was the last time you saw a member of the medical profession standing in front of an abortion clinic giving girls on their way in, medical information in support of human life? When was the last time you saw a plaque on a doctor's door saying "member of Doctors for Life"? When was the last time you heard of a doctor refusing to practice at a hospital that does abortions? When was the last time you heard of a doctor refusing to belong to one of the pro-abortion medical organizations like the AMA?
It is sad that the only profession in the USA that violates the commandment Thou shalt not kill is the same profession that takes an oath to do no harm. But it is nice to know that one of the only three hospitals that still refuses to do abortions in Maine is right here in Oxford Hills, Maine.
And while not having an abortion mill in the Oxford Hills area is comforting, it is sad indeed that not one doctor or dentist from the Oxford Hills area is listed on www.cmds.org, the Christian medical and dental association web site.
Lord, you gave them the intellect to become doctors, nurses, dentists and medical professionals, could you please give them the backbone to cleanse their profession of murderers?
Lord God Creator of all things, we give Thee thanks for giving us the second chance we do not deserve. We thank Thee Lord for our brave troops who are at this very instant freeing and liberating people through out the kingdom of satan. Lord we beseech Thee that Thou would send to our men a Paul, to preach Your word to them while they go to free those held captive by the forces of evil. Touch the Presidents heart Lord, lead him in a direction to send evangelist to our troops, give him the strength Lord to serve You, to use his office, that You have entrusted him with, as Commander in Chief to authorize and send solid evangelical Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian preachers to bring the Word of God to our troops, giving them both reason to fight and the Lord's plan of salvation. And put the end of abortion at the top of his agenda.
Lord Jesus, it is in Thy Sacred and Holy Name I pray, Amen.
red are those quotes of God the Son, the Lord Jesus and the words in purple are those qoutes spoken directly by God the Father and the words in this sickly greenish color are of satan. But all of the Bible is spoken by God and should be viewed as God's handbook for us to run our lives by 2 Timothy 3:16.
God blessed America when she feared Him, now it appears, she may face His wrath.
