June Medical Services v. Rebekah Gee, Secretary, Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals

By Christian Medical & Dental Associations® / January 28, 2020 /

By Christian Medical & Dental Associations® / January 9, 2020 / Comments Off on Group letter to Alex M. Azar II, Secretary, U.S. Department of Health & Human Services

As you know, several U.S. jurisdictions have passed legislation giving doctors immunity from civil and criminal liability for assisting the suicide of persons diagnosed with terminal disabilities. Tragically, in these jurisdictions and for this class of persons, and for them alone, suicides are now facilitated by physicians, usually with no psychological assessment or other medical treatment, typically with no consultation with family and loved ones, and in every case without the interventions and protections provided as a matter of course to all other suicidal persons.

That engagement must take place especially at the local level, where real spiritual and cultural transformation occurs. If America returns to its spiritual foundations, the tumultuous times we live in will be nothing more than a bumpy detour in our nation’s history.

CMDA Vows to Press on After Court Ruling Endangers Conscience Protections

By Christian Medical & Dental Associations® / November 6, 2019 / Comments Off on CMDA Vows to Press on After Court Ruling Endangers Conscience Protections

Christian doctors and nurses are on the frontlines serving people in need. Driven by our faith, we welcome and care for everyone, especially the underserved. We care for homeless and migrant communities, prisoners living with HIV, and victims of gang violence, sex trafficking, opioid addiction and deadly epidemics. But our service is threatened by lawsuits brought in New York, Washington and California, which challenge commonsense conscience protections for healthcare professionals of faith. Religious healthcare professionals of all religions must be free to continue providing compassionate care without being forced to perform procedures, such as abortions, that would require them to violate their most deeply held beliefs.

This book is a compilation of stories, metaphors, insights, and personal experiences not organized around a particular theme. Throughout his 41 year career as a minister to students, the author had numerous opportunities to speak and write. Often the inspiration came straight from the humdrum of daily living and the various arenas that defined his life as a husband, father, minister, carpenter, fisherman, hunter, and gardener. The author leans heavily on his admiration and respect for the Scripture drawing parallels between Biblical truth and everyday life lessons.

End of Life Issues

By Christian Medical & Dental Associations® / July 22, 2019 / Comments Off on End of Life Issues

As a Christian healthcare professional, have your colleagues ever looked down at you for refusing to prescribe the morning after pill? Or have you ever been punished for maintaining your religious beliefs instead of believing in evolution? Or have you ever been harassed by an attending trying to force you to perform an abortion?

If you’ve experienced any type of hostility or discrimination like this, then you know how important it is for healthcare workers to protect their right of conscience. Right of conscience is defined as the right to practice healthcare in accordance with your deeply held religious, moral or ethical convictions.

Healthcare professionals are being pressured and discriminated against by employers and colleagues because of their deeply held religious or moral beliefs. Almost one in four faith-based professionals state that they have been discriminated against by employers, educators or others in the healthcare system. Nearly two out of five have been pressured to violate their beliefs by referring, writing a prescription or doing a procedure.

Abolishing the right of conscience is dangerous. It’s not just dangerous for the physicians and healthcare workers, but it’s also dangerous for our country, our healthcare system and every patient. In a recent survey of more than 2,800 faith-based doctors, pharmacists, physician assistants and nurses, 95 percent of them said they would quit medicine before violating their conscience.

CMDA is committed to providing the most up-to-date information on the legislative, ethical and medical aspects of the fight to protect the rights of medical professionals. We’ve compiled a great number of resources that you can use to educate yourself and others about this important issue. So get involved today: talk about the issue with your friends, write your senators and send a letter to your local newspaper to let others know how important it is to maintain the right of conscience.

Fanning the Flames of a CMDA Leadership Legacy

Fanning the Flames of a CMDA Leadership Legacy

By Mike Chupp, MD / June 18, 2019 /

I attended my first CMDA National Convention in April 2012 and heard devotional speaker Luis Palau make this statement: “Big doors open on small hinges.” He explained how seemingly small events in our lives may serve to open big doors that God intends for us to walk through in order to enjoy incredible blessings that follow. A small hinge in my life was a letter Dr. David Stevens wrote to me after I had served at Tenwek Hospital in Kenya in early 1988 for two months during my fourth year of medical school.

Franklin Graham, my boss, and I had just finished a meeting in the early 1990s when I walked into my office at World Medical Missions and found a letter marked “Personal and Confidential” on my desk from the Christian Medical & Dental Society (CMDS, as the ministry was called at that time). As I opened it, little did I realize it was the first step in a journey that would result in me leading CMDA for 25 years.
