I highly recommend Canadian Physicians for Life. They are an excellent organization that is building an ever-growing network of medical personnel who uphold, protect, and defend the dignity and value of all members of the human family. Furthermore, their ethical formation of the next generation of doctors through their annual student conference is rock solid. Canadian Physicians for Life can be counted on to use their knowledge and skills to compassionately care for the most vulnerable among us, and for this I am most grateful and encouraged.
On matters of bioethics and healthcare social issues, I cannot overemphasize the significance of the CPL. This national organization is a proven, vital resource not only for physicians and med students, but those of us in social services, pastoral care, public institutions and media.
CPL is one of the leading voices for medical ethics in Canada. By training and equipping medical students and doctors to engage winsomely with society through media, conferences, speeches and writing, and to think critically through current medical-ethical issues, CPL is an invaluable asset in ensuring the millennia-old Hippocratic tradition remains a force for good in Canadian medicine.
Canadian Physicians for Life gives medical students a gift. By providing them with the time and experts to talk to, medical students are able to consider the realities of excellent medical care alongside the big questions of how to provide that excellent care in a system that is often hostile to their worldview. Canadian Physicians for Life is a reliable resource and community for not just medical students but also practicing doctors.
The Canadian Physicians for Life represent a phenomenal resource for the training of medical students throughout Canada. The Euthanasia Prevention Coalition appreciates our collaboration at conferences and through sharing a common goal of preventing euthanasia and assisted suicide.
As Canadians, it is imperative that we understand how to protect the lives of the marginalized and vulnerable amongst us. Canadian Physicians for Life brings a professional medical voice and perspective to this challenging conversation.
I trust and respect the way Canadian Physicians for Life operates. This organization has integrity and a history of ‘telling it like it is’ when addressing the issues our culture and its members face. I also appreciate how Physicians for Life offers robust, useful support to physicians and trainees. As a long-time donor, I'm grateful to be a part of this organization and its efforts.
Advocating for public policy protecting pre-born children necessarily requires credible experts in the fields of medicine and bioethics. We applaud Canadian Physicians for Life for providing solid research in the areas of fetal pain and fetal development. Perhaps even more encouraging are their efforts in training new medical students in these areas. This bodes well for the future advancement of pre-born human rights in Canada.
It is my pleasure to endorse Canadian Physicians for Life whose mission it is to successfully support medical students, residents, and physicians who are facing new and unprecedented challenges to their conscience and religious rights. Their support and educational resources are vital at this crucial time in Canadian history as we see a shift in the approach and understanding of the value and dignity of human life. CPL has become an important resource and partner within our post-abortion ministry.
Medical school, and medicine in general, is a challenging environment for those who believe in the dignity of human life. Abortion and euthanasia are taught as societal goods without one mention of the negative repercussions, let alone the lives lost to "legal procedures". CPL was a breath of fresh air for me and my pro-life minded colleagues. It was so encouraging to see there are others throughout our country that care about life and the Hippocratic tradition, that we are not alone, and that it is reasonable to promote life and pursue justice for those in difficult circumstances. CPL has great resources for students, residents and physicians alike, and I keep turning to them throughout my career to get a balanced view of the life issues that are reported in the media.
