I will never forget the auditorium full of eager young doctors repeating that ancient oath associated with their profession.
A state school, to be sure…but I still registered shock when the good medicine of not doing harm and not administering abortions was strangely excised.
Because when you wanna convince doctors to look the other way when abortion becomes status quo you gotta take it out of the promise.
Excise babies? Excise conscience.
But the truth is that without that promise to protect life doctors are free to do unconscionable things.
The 30 mile rule is good medicine. It will save lives.
This is restoration of the unilateral protection of the law.
No more, no less.
