A Second Drug Wave is Coming: Marijuana

By James Avery, MD | January 10, 2019

The first drug wave was the opioid epidemic. In 2016, more Americans died from drug overdoses (67,000) than during the entirety of the Vietnam War (58,200).1 The second and more insidious wave is comingā€”itā€™s the marijuana wave.

ETHICAL VACCINES: Ready for a shot in the arm?

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | March 15, 2021

With millions of COVID-19 vaccine doses already plunged into American arms and hundreds of million more doses on the way, can healthcare professionals confidently receive the vaccines themselves and also recommend them for patients?

While responses to this question often involve important emotional factors that need to be addressed, this article focuses on three rational considerations: safety, efficacy and ethics.

At the Heart of the Crisis: Personal Reflections on COVID-19

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | September 2, 2020

It is no exaggeration for me to say CMDA has had an influential impact on my adult spiritual life. Since 1999, I have been active with CMDA in one way or another. In 2017, my work with the New York City chapter was significantly increasing, and I found myself more interested in ministry activities than even my own private practice in surgery. After a couple years of praying and planning, I officially began my full-time ministry as the NYC Area Director on March 1, 2020. There was no way humanly possible we could have foreseen what would occur in NYC that same month.

Negative Health Consequences of Same-Sex Sexual Behavior

By AndrĆØ Van Mol, MD | July 27, 2011

The health effects of same-sex sexual behavior are many. The public, government, and judiciary are being lead to believe that same-sex sexuality is a normal variant with interactions and results equivalent to heterosexual sexuality. However, this position runs contrary to professional literature and the track record of history.

Pornography and Interactive Sexual Devices

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | September 2, 2020

Pornography is any medium that depicts erotic behavior and is intended to entice sexual imagination. Pornography has no beneficial use but damages human relationships. Mass communication technologies such as the Internet have expanded its reach to an unprecedented degree. Video and virtual reality have intensified its content. The introduction of sex robots that imitate human speech and sexual behaviors and are designed to perform sexual acts with humans are an extreme elaboration of pornography. All of these have dangerous psychological, social, and spiritual consequences.

Our Calling in the Coronavirus Pandemic

By Reverend Stephen Ko, MD, MA, MPH, MDiv | June 1, 2020

Few of us trained to treat sick communities and continents. Unfortunately, that is our task during a pandemic. The origin of the word comes from the Greek pandemos, where pan means everyone and demos means population. Pandemics confront us with not just one sick individual but with hundreds of thousands of ill patients. The responsible pathogen overwhelms both individual immune systems and community healthcare systems. The toll is individual and collective.

Phrases like these were extremely common in my daily practice when I served as a physician at a university student health center early in my career. Those words were often a result of simple naivete, but consumer-driven patient attitudes have intensified dramatically through the years. Here in Canada, where euthanasia/assisted suicide is legal, I currently face more serious and sinister demands in my palliative care practice.

Washington, D.C., October 15, 2019–The Christian Medical Association, the nation’s largest faith-based professional medical organization, responded today to their victory in federal court for the conscience rights of medical professionals. The case, Franciscan Alliance v. Azar, sought relief from a 2016 federal regulation that threatened to drive religious doctors out of practice if they would not perform gender-transition procedures that violate their medical judgment and beliefs. Today’s ruling struck down the rule.

The Dr. John Patrick Bioethics Column: Imposed Order

By John Patrick, MD | January 5, 2022

ā€œGo and clean your room!ā€

Now, is that likely to get immediate and rueful compliance? Probably not, yet we cannot live without a modicum of order. But order divorced from a richer framework can become a devastating obsession. As is inevitable, if we are made in the image of God, our bristling response to anyone telling us what to do meets an inner reality that we know when the command is justified. We are not mere animals responding to innate instincts. We do not even arrive as an empty slate but as rational beings with moral knowledge, but so often we are unable to respond appropriately and very, very unlikely to be grateful that we are made with moral knowledge. Blessed are the wounds of a friend, but heā€™s no friend of mine at the moment of conviction. Ah, the human condition is not compatible with Utopian dreams.

Right of Conscience | Freedom of Faith & Conscience | Religious Freedom

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® | June 11, 2019

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 youā€™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. Itā€™s not just dangerous for the physicians and healthcare workers, but itā€™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. Weā€™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.
