Question for the Evening

Doctors take the Hippocratic Oath:

Hippocratic Oath: Modern Version

I swear to fulfill, to the best of my ability and judgment, this covenant:

I will respect the hard-won scientific gains of those physicians in whose steps I walk, and gladly share such knowledge as is mine with those who are to follow.

I will apply, for the benefit of the sick, all measures [that] are required, avoiding those twin traps of overtreatment and therapeutic nihilism.

I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon's knife or the chemist's drug.

I will not be ashamed to say "I know not," nor will I fail to call in my colleagues when the skills of another are needed for a patient's recovery.

I will respect the privacy of my patients, for their problems are not disclosed to me that the world may know. Most especially must I tread with care in matters of life and death. If it is given me to save a life, all thanks. But it may also be within my power to take a life; this awesome responsibility must be faced with great humbleness and awareness of my own frailty. Above all, I must not play at God.

I will remember that I do not treat a fever chart, a cancerous growth, but a sick human being, whose illness may affect the person's family and economic stability. My responsibility includes these related problems, if I am to care adequately for the sick.

I will prevent disease whenever I can, for prevention is preferable to cure.

I will remember that I remain a member of society, with special obligations to all my fellow human beings, those sound of mind and body as well as the infirm.

If I do not violate this oath, may I enjoy life and art, respected while I live and remembered with affection thereafter. May I always act so as to preserve the finest traditions of my calling and may I long experience the joy of healing those who seek my help.

—Written in 1964 by Louis Lasagna, Academic Dean of the School of Medicine at Tufts University, and used in many medical schools today.

Does Obamacare make the medical community violate the Hippocratic Oath by making them an arm of the Federal Government?

Everyone knows obama is an illegal and needs to be JAILED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 They forgot to read that part before they passed it .

liberals have always been hypocrites, so what's new??????????????????????????????????

OF COURSE IT DOES ! OBAMACARE ISN'T ABOUT HEALING , IT'S ABOUT PEOPLE CONTROL , THE DOCTORS BEING JUST A TOOL OF THE REGIME TO DO SO .

Doctor's are like a priest in the confessional....WHATEVER they hear they cannot repeat, the Priest answers to God and the Doctor answers to his oath. The King is using the medical community to find out personal info about Americans and then he'll use it against us . I don't trust the gov't as far as I can spit !!!!! 

"But it may also be within my power to take a life; this awesome responsibility must be faced with great humbleness and awareness of my own frailty. Above all, I must not play at God." Is this a caveat to excuse abortion doctors for taking the lives of the innocent? "[W]ithin my power to take a life...?" To "take a life?" I would think it would be more appropriate to say, "to be beyond my power to save a life" or perhaps "to lose a life through ignorance or mistake" (humans are not perfect). The active voice of "taking a life" just doesn't work for me.

Yes, Obama breaks every rule in the book.

Those doctors that don't retire because of OsamaCare, will be medical bureaucrats, treating only those people that Hussein Osama allows.  The rest of us will get the death panels.

ALERT ALERT

Rudy Fires Warning Shot – Going to Release Evidence on the Biden’s Millions in Corrupt Deeds!

President Trump’s personal attorney and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani dropped a bomb this morning warning that he is going to start revealing documents related to the Biden Family’s corrupt and criminal dealings in the Ukraine and elsewhere around the world.

Rudy tweeted:

Everything I tried to tell the press last March is now coming out, and more. I will now start to reveal the evidence directly to you, the People. The Biden Family Enterprise made millions by selling public office. Then when Joe was Obama’s Point Man, they ALL made millions.

It’s time to take these criminals from the Obama Administration to task.  The Bidens, Obamas and the Clintons were criminal enterprises.
