YOU CAN GO TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD AND NOT BE GIVEN PRE-NATAL CARE, NOT GET A MAMMOGRAM, CANCER TREATMENTS, OR BE TREATED OR TESTED FOR ALL THE OTHER NUMEROUS HEALTH ISSUES, SOME AS SIMPLE AS THE FLU OR COLD, AND YET PLANNED PARENTHOOD KEEPS INSISTING THAT THEY ARE A “HEALTH CARE” CENTER THAT WOMEN NEED.  HEALTH CARE SAVES LIVES INSTEAD OF KILLING LIVES.

THEY ARE AN ABORTION MILL THAT CONCENTRATES ON MAKING MONEY FROM ABORTION, AND ONLY SEE WOMEN FOR THEIR REPRODUCTION ORGANS AND HOW THEY CAN PROFIT FROM EXPLOITING THEM FOR THEIR OWN GAIN. 

Classic Version of the Hippocratic Oath

The classical version of the Hippocratic Oath is from the translation from the Greek by Ludwig Edelstein. From The Hippocratic Oath: Text, Translation, and Interpretation, by Ludwig Edelstein. Baltimore: Johns Hopkins Press, 1943. The modern version has been changed dramatically from the original intent of the Hippocratic Oath.

 “…I will fulfill according to my ability and judgment this oath and this covenant:

…I will apply dietetic measures for the benefit of the sick according to my ability and judgment; I will keep them from harm and injustice.

I will neither give a deadly drug to anybody who asked for it, nor will I make a suggestion to this effect. Similarly I will not give to a woman an abortive remedy. In purity and holiness I will guard my life and my art.

I will not use the knife, not even on sufferers from stone, but will withdraw in favor of such men as are engaged in this work.

Whatever houses I may visit, I will come for the benefit of the sick, remaining free of all intentional injustice, of all mischief and in particular of sexual relations with both female and male persons, be they free or slaves.

What I may see or hear in the course of the treatment or even outside of the treatment in regard to the life of men, which on no account one must spread abroad, I will keep to myself, holding such things shameful to be spoken about.

If I fulfill this oath and do not violate it, may it be granted to me to enjoy life and art, being honored with fame among all men for all time to come; if I transgress it and swear falsely, may the opposite of all this be my lot.”

  1. Yes, the medical profession changed the oath so as not to have (nor suffer) any cognitive dissonance once they wholeheartedly embraced abortion on demand in the 1970s and 1980s.
