The Hippocratic Oath - Euthanasia

Yes, you can prove that the doses of morphine are massive, that the doses of sedatives are massive, and you can have two or more doctors who swear under oath that nobody should require that high a dose. The problem? The hospice agency will hire two or ten physicians who swear just the opposite, so you have a "he said-she said" type scenario where nobody is believed for sure. Families that wish to take the case to court have no access to either the criminal or civil courts when a patient is hastened to their death. And so, stealth euthanasia continues to sweep across our nation and the Invisible Holocaust swallows up more victims.

Greek Medicine - The Hippocratic Oath

Terri is said to have "collapsed" with brain-injury in 1990. Medical records show that , she had marked injury to her neck and an L-1 injury to her spine, a posterior rib fracture and other injuries not explainable by simply having "collapsed." . No police attempted-homicide investigation was ever done. Nobody has ever explained why not. She was later examined to be in a "minimally-conscious state by physicians," but pro-euthanasia physician Ronald Cranford, MD conveniently declared Terri was in a persistent vegetative state which suited the agenda. Rehabilitation therapy had been forbidden for many years by order of guardian Michael Schiavo, and she was later admitted to hospice fraudulently since Terri did not meet the criteria for hospice; she was not "terminal." Her own physician testified under oath that she was in good health. Terri was not on any "life support" at all but had tube feedings.

Greek Medicine: THE HIPPOCRATIC OATH

They've written sections of textbook after textbook or controlled the slant of content used to train physicians, nurses, other health care professionals, attorneys, and therefore some of the justices who eventually serve on the courts, until they have succeeded in changing how the powerful-to-be think and act ... how they view the world from deep within. And now the indoctrinated are the powerful. They've even gotten rid of the Hippocratic Oath for graduating physicians in most medical schools (contrary to what we Americans assume). They are accomplishing the last acts of their grand project: changing completely how Americans die and how Americans view death and dying.

The Hippocratic Oath is one of the most revered documents of history

It may "be within my power to a life...." What does that mean? I would like to think it meant that in the ordinary course of medicine, some people might die. We can all understand that, but that is not the language most carefully chosen by the author. "Take a life" is not the same as "lose" a life! And just before stating that one must "not play at God," the oath states they may "take a life." What else is "taking" a life but "playing God?" There is no prohibition against abortion or giving a lethal drug as was included in the Hippocratic Oath. There is no prohibition against "doing harm." In fact, the word, "harm" is not contained in the modern physician's oath. Of course, each medical school chooses what oath to use, and:
