Our schools and healthcare institutions have abandoned the Hippocratic Oath and the Declaration of Geneva and replaced it with a policy of lethalism …This is a direct result of the Court’s acceptance and promotion of archaic scientific reasoning (Roe v. Wade) that, at best, would be considered pre-medieval and clearly out of touch with scientific reality. Fallout includes the expansion into fetal experimentation, human cloning, embryonic stem cell research, infanticide, and even physician-assisted suicide programs. The respect for life ethic has slowly been removed as the Supreme Court has so strongly supported the “lethalism becomes a way of life” ethic. Especially interesting is the lack of support for any positive solutions to these issues. The recognition is that life at all stages in the womb is precious and able to make extraordinary contributions to our ability to love and to be loved, to bring about peace and to be at peace, to extract love in ways that only a very young and precious life is able to extract, and to express love in ways that can be boundlessly meaningful. As we move to reestablish the human right to live, we must also move beyond lethalism and install positive, life-affirming and meaningful solutions to real human problems. God bless us all as we move in this direction!
