From a FB post:

People are talking about the medical necessity of abortion to save the mother's life. I was one of those mothers.

I was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer that was cutting off my airway at 20 weeks of pregnancy. I will never forget when the first doctor, an oncologist, mentioned abortion. We had gone thru years of infertility to get pregnant. I knew I would rather die and give birth. Then I met with another doctor who listed all of the problems the baby would have if I did not terminate. I stood my ground and refused. He said, "That is ok. The baby will probably spontaneously abort anyway."

2) I searched and found good doctors that supported me, and I gave birth to a healthy baby at 34 weeks.
I will be celebrating 10 years cancer free in May. I have a healthy, beautiful, bright, precious 10 year old daughter who is a living reminder that doctors do not know everything.

I know the name of this woman, as it was posted on FB, but I will not post it here, for fear that she will get backlash from liberals.

I love a happy ending!

I agree! There are a couple of other stories like this that I’ll be sharing in memes tomorrow. One of them is a call to Christians to support those that are pregnant. I hope you’ll read those, as well!

When a doctor no longer sees a patient and the pregnancy of that patient as life and the struggle for life, it’s time for him to fix cars!

Good point, Jazzy! I’m just wondering how a doctor can take the Hippocratic oath and then do this. Of course, one doctor on SoH told me that they’re no longer required to TAKE the Hippocratic oath! This is probably why!

They don’t have to take the oath? I had no idea. That’s not good.

Yes, I’m pretty sure that’s what @JamesAndersonMD told me. How about it James? Didn’t you tell me that doctors no longer have to take the Hippocratic Oath? I know that I had read one article that said that they can do an alternate version of the Oath that doesn’t even include the phrase, “do no harm.”

That’s right. There is no requirement to take the oath in order to be licensed, and most medical schools do not obligate students to do it. There are alternative oaths, just as 4JC mentioned, or you can choose not to take an “oath”, and just follow licensing guidelines which is sort of an oath within itself.
