Euthanasia Prevention Resources

Turning the Tide, produced by the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition and Salt and Light television media foundation, was designed to change the way secular society perceives the issues of euthanasia and assisted suicide. Secular society views the issues of euthanasia and assisted suicide to be issues related to autonomy whereas Turning the Tide shifts the focus of the issue by using a personal story style to focus on the vulnerability of the person when one experiences disability, depression or symptoms related to degenerative and/or end of life conditions. The video also focuses on issues related to pain and symptom management and proper end-of-life care. Groups that have viewed Turning the Tide have been incredibly impressed by the production quality of the video and the profound comments by the people featured in the DVD. Catherine Frazee, disability studies professor at Ryerson University comments in Turning the Tide that: “People like to frame this debate in the language of autonomy, or individual choice. They’ll say to me that it’s all right, you can say no, but other people will want to say yes, but I don’t think individual autonomy should ever be permitted to trump the safety and well-being of the community.” Wesley Smith comments in Turning the Tide that: “You have a situation in Canada and certainly in the United States, where people are having difficulty getting access to … good pain control, good psychiatric involvement and good social services. Are we going to say that the answer for these problems is assisted suicide?” Senator Sharon Carstairs, former chair of the Special Senate Committee on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide answers the...

Courage in Medical School – Starting A Medical Students for Life Group (updated 1/14)

 Update at end: MedSFLA Tour Speaker & Pro-Life OBGYN in West Virginia Continues to Fight for Women Victimized by Abortion Pro-Life Military Veteran Fights Abortion Bias to Graduate As Surgical Tech Medical Student Confronts Abortion, Becomes Pro-Life   Courage in Medical School The idea of starting a Med Students for Life [ http://med.studentsforlife.org/ ] group at your Medical School can be daunting when you consider the demands of your M1 and M2 schedule. Not to mention the stigma that is placed on students who dare to speak up on behalf of life-affirming medical care for the preborn and their mothers. Despite the obstacles, the need for med students to be the voice of truth and light on our medical school campuses is imperative to advancing a strong patient-doctor relationship based in the rights of conscience and grounded in the Hippocratic Oath to do no harm. Jason wrote us to tell of his success in starting a Medical Students for Life group at a private medical school: “Yesterday I presented to the SGA and through lots of prayer and reaching out to others, we were officially approved as Medical Students for Life. It was a tough crowd and a difficult presentation to give, but one that I made sure to be well prepared for in advance. It proves that anything is possible with prayer and I learned that it's all about the approach you take and to ask for God to be there at your side. Thank you for the prayers and support, I couldn't have done it without you! I look forward to working with you in the future...

STD Risk Assessment Resources

STD Risk Assessment Tool: http://www.stdwizard.org Program aimed at reducing the 19 million new cases of HPV, AIDS and other STDs. “The STD Wizard is a powerful web-based risk assessment tool that can help reduce the estimated 19 million new infections that occur each year, half of which are among young people under the age of 25,” said The Medical Institute national spokesperson, Freda Bush, M.D. “Whether it’s HPV or some other infection, our greatest advantage is early detection and awareness. The STD Wizard will help people understand the risks associated with their sexual activities and will reduce the spread of disease.” More than 65 million Americans are currently living with an STD and 19 million new infections occur every year. Although most people with sexually transmitted infections have no symptoms, they can still spread these infections. Additionally, these individuals are often unaware that they have an infection, or if they do know, are too embarrassed to seek treatment.   The STD Wizard is a comprehensive assessment tool developed by The Medical Institute’s doctors and scientists. The Wizard guides users through an interactive question-and-answer process focused on past and current sexual behavior. Analysis and recommendations are based on up-to-date research and take into account such factors as age, gender and geographic location. Responses are completely anonymous and confidential. Once the assessment is completed, the STD Wizard identifies specific risk factors and provides recommended action steps that can be printed and shared with a physician, healthcare provider or partner. The STD Wizard is free, takes about five minutes to complete and can be accessed over the Internet at http://www.stdwizard.org. The Medical Institute...

The Database contains over 2,000 empirical findings drawn from more than 1,250 peer-reviewed journal articles published throughout the past 20 years. The family, centered on marriage, is the basic unit of society. Healthy marriages and families are the foundation of thriving communities.

Questions from Medical Students / Residents & Answers From Practicing Physicians

Americans United for Life is working on model Rights of Conscience legislation – www.unitedforlife.org Q. How can pro-life medical students avoid being harassed for our views? Response from a top pro-life OBG: If you are harassed by your professors for your pro-life views, write a detailed description of the harassment for legal purposes. Federal Civil Rights Laws protect you.  Being harrassed for your pro life views is a given.  Expect it now and for the rest of your career. Know your position, and be able to articulate it, be sure it is conscience based.   Being penalized is what we need protection from.  And we have protection from the Medical Training Nondiscrimination Act of l995, which states:  The federal govt and any state that receives federal financial assistance (and that would be all of them!!) may not subject any health care entity to discrimination on the basis that the entity refuses to undergo training in the performance of induced abortions, to provide such training, to perform such abortions, or to provide referrals for such abortions. So programs may insist that students/residends must do abortions, but if they so insist, they stand to lose all their government money—and no program could stand that.  So, every pro-life student/resident should be very conversant with that bill, by name, and be able to quote it in your sleep.  Some suggest writing a statement to have placed in your file. As far as being sure a statement stating you will not do abortions is in your folder, I don't have an opinion on that.  Should you put such statement in your file before hand, or wait...

Ideas To Help Spread The Pro Life Message

EDUCATE YOURSELF!! Learn the facts about abortion, historical, legal, medical, and statistical. Contact resources at the end of this brochure. Wear your "Precious Feet" lapel pin or Pro-Life button/T-shirt everywhere as an opportunity to speak about the beauty of life. Place a Pro-Life bumper sticker on your car. Several thousand people may see this message each year! Keep Pro-Life brochures with pictures in your car, purse, or briefcase.  Gently remind people that preborn babies can feel pain and that they are fully formed and functioning by 12 weeks after conception. Place Pro-Life brochures / magazines in reception rooms, doctor’s offices, waiting areas, barber shops, bus stations, airports, restrooms, church vestibules, public telephone areas, malls, convention halls, restaurants (with your tips), the collection plate, in your outgoing mail, in free newspapers. Then try bulletin boards in hospitals, laundromats, gas stations, post offices, college dorms, grocery stores, libraries, churches, restaurants, banks, government buildings, coffee shops, anywhere people will find them. Mail Pro-Life brochures with your utility bill payments, greeting cards, etc. Use Pro-Life Checks. About 15 people see your checks as they are processed  and these checks carry powerful messages. Contact Heritage House '76; www.hh76.com Discuss abortion with your friends. It helps to begin by discussing the issue  with Pro-Life friends /relatives. As you become more comfortable with the facts  & concepts, it will be easier to discuss them with co-workers, friends, and  relatives who are "on the fence". Avoid heated debates and arguments; anger  has no place in this issue. A truly compassionate heart is what is needed. Write letters to the editors of newspapers and magazines regarding abortion, euthanasia,...
