Jehovah's Witnesses' refusal of blood: obedience to scripture and religious conscience. (1/41)

Jehovah's Witnesses are students of the Bible. They refuse transfusions out of obedience to the scriptural directive to abstain and keep from blood. Dr Muramoto disagrees with the Witnesses' religious beliefs in this regard. Despite this basic disagreement over the meaning of Biblical texts, Muramoto flouts the religious basis for the Witnesses' position. His proposed policy change about accepting transfusions in private not only conflicts with the Witnesses' fundamental beliefs but it promotes hypocrisy. In addition, Muramoto's arguments about pressure to conform and coerced disclosure of private information misrepresent the beliefs and practices of Jehovah's Witnesses and ignore the element of individual conscience. In short, Muramoto resorts to distortion and uncorroborated assertions in his effort to portray a matter of religious faith as a matter of medical ethical debate.  (+info)

Informed consent for emergency contraception: variability in hospital care of rape victims. (2/41)

There is growing concern that rape victims are not provided with emergency contraceptives in many hospital emergency rooms, particularly in Catholic hospitals. In a small pilot study, we examined policies and practices relating to providing information, prescriptions, and pregnancy prophylaxis in emergency rooms. We held structured telephone interviews with emergency department personnel in 58 large urban hospitals, including 28 Catholic hospitals, from across the United States. Our results showed that some Catholic hospitals have policies that prohibit the discussion of emergency contraceptives with rape victims, and in some of these hospitals, a victim would learn about the treatment only by asking. Such policies and practices are contrary to Catholic teaching. More seriously, they undermine a victim's right to information about her treatment options and jeopardize physicians' fiduciary responsibility to act in their patients' best interests. We suggest that institutions must reevaluate their restrictive policies. If they fail to do so, we believe that state legislation requiring hospitals to meet the standard of care for treatment of rape victims is appropriate.  (+info)

Medical paternalism and the fetus. (3/41)

A number of developments in the medical field have changed the debate about the ethics of abortion. These developments include: advances in fetal physiology, the increase in neonatal intensive care and the survival rates of premature infants. This paper discusses the idea of selective termination and the effects that these decisions have on disabled people of today. It presents a critique of the counselling services that are provided for the parents of a disabled fetus and discusses how this is viewed from a social perspective. The article ends with an argument that the mother deserves to be autonomous in the decision of abortion. The easiest and most fair way to develop her autonomy is to consider the relationship between a professional and a mother as an expert-expert relationship. Here both parties are considered experts in diagnostic information, treatment options, possibilities, and their history, family roots, philosophy and way of life, respectively.  (+info)

The place for individual conscience. (4/41)

From a liberationist, feminist, and Catholic point of view, this article attempts to understand the decision of abortion. People are constantly testing their principles and values against the question of abortion. Advances in technology, the rise of communitarianism and the rejection of individualism, and the commodification of children are factors in the way in which the abortion debate is being constructed in society. The paper offers solutions to end the ugliness of the abortion debate by suggesting that we would be able to progress further on the issue of abortion if we looked for the good in the opposing viewpoint. The article continues with a discussion of Catholics For a Free Choice's position on abortion, and notes firstly that there is no firm position within the Catholic Church on when the fetus becomes a person; secondly that the principle of probablism in Roman Catholicism holds that where the church cannot speak definitively on a matter of fact (in this case, on the personhood of the fetus), the consciences of individual Catholics must be primary and respected, and thirdly that the absolute prohibition on abortion by the church is not infallible. In conclusion, only the woman herself can make the abortion decision.  (+info)

Artificial feeding for severely disoriented, elderly patients. (6/41)

The issue of artificial feeding for patients with dementia who refuse feeding by hand is a wrenching emotional problem that can cloud clinical judgement. It is helpful to apply an analytic approach to decision making. There are five steps: gathering a comprehensive clinical database; defining the goal of treatment; knowing the treatment options available, their burdens and potential benefits; understanding the law; and defining the moral framework in which care is being given. Such an approach can be used to formulate a plan of treatment in the best interests of incompetent elderly patients who cannot speak for themselves.  (+info)

The contribution of embarrassment to phobic dental anxiety: a qualitative research study. (7/41)

BACKGROUND: Embarrassment is emphasized, yet scantily described as a factor in extreme dental anxiety or phobia. Present study aimed to describe details of social aspects of anxiety in dental situations, especially focusing on embarrassment phenomena. METHODS: Subjects (Ss) were consecutive specialist clinic patients, 16 men, 14 women, 20-65 yr, who avoided treatment mean 12.7 yr due to anxiety. Electronic patient records and transcribed initial assessment and exit interviews were analyzed using QSR"N4" software to aid in exploring contexts related to social aspects of dental anxiety and embarrassment phenomena. Qualitative findings were co-validated with tests of association between embarrassment intensity ratings, years of treatment avoidance, and mouth-hiding behavioral ratings. RESULTS: Embarrassment was a complaint in all but three cases. Chief complaints in the sample: 30% had fear of pain; 47% cited powerlessness in relation to dental social situations, some specific to embarrassment and 23% named co-morbid psychosocial dysfunction due to effects of sexual abuse, general anxiety, gagging, fainting or panic attacks. Intense embarrassment was manifested in both clinical and non-clinical situations due to poor dental status or perceived neglect, often (n = 9) with fear of negative social evaluation as chief complaint. These nine cases were qualitatively different from other cases with chief complaints of social powerlessness associated with conditioned distrust of dentists and their negative behaviors. The majority of embarrassed Ss to some degree inhibited smiling/laughing by hiding with lips, hands or changed head position. Secrecy, taboo-thinking, and mouth-hiding were associated with intense embarrassment. Especially after many years of avoidance, embarrassment phenomena lead to feelings of self-punishment, poor self-image/esteem and in some cases personality changes in a vicious circle of anxiety and avoidance. Embarrassment intensity ratings were positively correlated with years of avoidance and degree of mouth-hiding behaviors. CONCLUSIONS: Embarrassment is a complex dental anxiety manifestation with qualitative differences by complaint characteristics and perceived intensity. Some cases exhibited manifestations similar to psychiatric criteria for social anxiety disorder as chief complaint, while most manifested embarrassment as a side effect.  (+info)

Aaron O. Wells, MD and the Medical Committee for Human Rights: reflections on a life of conscience. (8/41)

The southern civil rights movement compelled Dr. Aaron Wells and other doctors to find ways to use their skills in support of that movement. Through the Medical Committee for Human Rights (MCHR), healthcare workers provided a medical presence for civil rights protesters in the south during the 1960s. Formed at a time when racial segregation in professional medical associations, hospitals, and medical education was common, the MCHR also highlighted race-based inequities in American medicine. Dr. Wells, a man who lives a life of activism, was the first national president of the MCHR. During the summer of 2002, nearly 40 years after the founding of MCHR, Wells was interviewed about his experiences. Those reminiscences are the basis of this article.  (+info)

Of course all of this argument was predicated on the assumption that inculpably mistaken conscience gives rise to duties, and perhaps a reader may want to now revisit that assumption. But I think the assumption is true, leaving us with the conclusion that mistaken conscience gives rise to duties whether or not the mistake is culpable.. Now lets turn the case about. Suppose that both Fred and Sally follow their respective mistaken consciences and therefore embezzle. What should we say? Should we say that they did nothing wrong? It seems we shouldnt say that they did nothing wrong, for if they did nothing wrong then their consciences werent mistaken, which they were. So lets accept (though I have a long-shot idea that Ive talked about elsewhere that might get out of this) that they both did wrong. Thus, as in Mark Murphys account of conscience, they were in the unhappy position that whatever they did would be wrong: by embezzling they defraud their employer and by not embezzling they violate ...

Chair Joe Pitts (R-PA) said, "On August 3, 2011, the Department of Health and Human Services [HHS] issued an interim final rule that would require nearly all private health plans to cover contraception and sterilization as part of their preventive services for women. While the rule does include a religious exemption, many entities feel that it is inadequate and violates their conscience rights by forcing them to provide coverage for services for which they have a moral or ethical objection. The religious employer exemption allowed under the preventive services rule - at the discretion of the HRSA [Health Resources and Services Administration] - is very narrow. And the definition offers no conscience protection to individuals, schools, hospitals, or charities that hire or serve people of all faiths in their communities. It is ironic that the proponents of the health care law talked about the need to expand access to services, but the administration issues rules that could force providers to stop ...

Of course, conscience is the consciousness of the moral right or wrong of ones own acts or motives. This is not about consciousness in a sense of being aware that youre conscious, nor is it about whether you believe there is a such thing as right or wrong due to label & title beliefs...it is about the question: Was you born into this world with a sense of conscience or did you learn it from your surroundings and/or surrounding influential beings and/or environmental fear factors, such as thunder, for example, that may have scared you into a state of thinking there may be some other ultimate form of order?

The overall purpose of this thesis is to investigate whether there is an association between "stress of conscience" - that is, stress related to a troubled conscience - and burnout, and to obtain an enhanced understanding of factors related to stress of conscience and burnout in healthcare. Of the four "studies" included, one uses qualitative research methods and the others use quantitative research methods. The data are based on cross-sectional questionnaire studies (I, II, and IV) and open-ended interviews (III).. We could find no existing suitable instrument for measuring troubled conscience in healthcare, and so we constructed and tested the "Stress of Conscience Questionnaire" (SCQ) (I), a nine-item instrument for assessing stressful situations and the degree to which they trouble the conscience. We included 164 participants in the pilot studies, an additional 444 in the main analysis, and 55 in the test-retest verification. Participants had various occupational backgrounds and were ...
Food and mealtimes should be adapted to the older persons individual needs and desires, a fact that is often ignored in favour of a functional mealtime organisation. This study was grounded in participatory action research (PAR), and the aim of the study was to illuminate a PAR process to assist care providers in constructively dealing with their troubled conscience generated from perceived shortcomings in providing an individualised meal schedule in residential care for older people. Care providers and their manager participated in twelve PAR sessions. The participants troubled conscience was eased by reflecting on and sharing their thoughts about their perception of a lack of individualised meal schedule and a lack of opportunities for meaningful interventions. The researchers in PAR became the bridge between the care providers and the management that was needed to improve individualised mealtime schedule. This study pinpoints how difficult it can be to make small changes in a rigid ...

The driving force that impelled Newman along the path of conversion was conscience. But what does this mean? In modern thinking, the word "conscience" signifies that for moral and religious questions, it is the subjective dimension, the individual, that constitutes the final authority for decision. The world is divided into the realms of the objective and the subjective. To the objective realm belong things that can be calculated and verified by experiment. Religion and morals fall outside the scope of these methods and are therefore considered to lie within the subjective realm. Here, it is said, there are in the final analysis no objective criteria. The ultimate instance that can decide here is therefore the subject alone, and precisely this is what the word "conscience" expresses: in this realm only the individual, with his intuitions and experiences, can decide. Newmans understanding of conscience is diametrically opposed to this. For him, "conscience" means mans capacity for truth: the ...
Michael Cook reports that new legislation in Victoria, Australia, decriminalises abortion and forces doctors with a conscientious objection to refer a woman to a doctor who will do an abortion. In the event of an emergency abortion . . . regardless of their moral qualms, doctors must do [an abortion] themselves. Victorian nurses will be in an even worse predicament. They must participate in an abortion if ordered by their boss. The same scenario, in a somewhat softer version, is being played out in the United States and Canada. Here, codes of professional conduct or regulations, rather than legislation, are being proposed to limit freedom of conscience rights with respect to abortion.
The history of protection of conscience in America is directly relevant to the protection of rights of conscience of health care providers in three ways. First, protection for rights of conscience underlie and historically preceded the First Amendment. In June, 1776, even before the Declaration of Independence, the Virginia Declaration of Rights provided, inter alia, that "all men are equally entitled to the free exercise of religion, according to the dictates of conscience . . . ." After centuries of government support for the state church in Virginia, the Baptists led a petition campaign demanding that "every tax upon conscience . . . be abolished." In 1779, Thomas Jefferson introduced his Bill for Establishing Religious Freedom in the Virginia Legislature (House of Burgesses). It declared that "to compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves, is sinful and tyrannical." (If Jefferson thought that about merely funding things against ones ...
Although some healthcare professionals have the legal right to conscientiously object to authorise or perform certain lawful medical services, they have an associated duty to provide the patient with enough information to seek out another professional willing to authorise or provide the service (the duty to refer). Does the duty to refer morally undermine the professionals conscientious objection (CO)? I narrow my discussion to the National Health Service in Britain, and the case of a general practitioner (GP) being asked by a pregnant woman to authorise an abortion. I will be careful not to enter the debate about whether abortion should be legalised, or the debate about whether CO should be permitted-I will take both as given. I defend the objecting GPs duty to refer against those I call the conscience absolutists, who would claim that if a state is serious enough in permitting the GPs objection in the first place (as is the UK), then it has to recognise the right to withhold any ...
The court also dismissed the states argument that such a rule was necessary in order to ensure access to what the states lawyers referred to as "emergency contraception." It did so by noting that the state was unable to point out even one instance of any person who had "ever been unable to obtain emergency contraception because of a pharmacists religious objection.". The pro-life pharmacy owners were represented, in part, by Francis Manion, Senior Counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice. He summed up the magnitude of the victory by stating, "Todays decision is a major victory for the rights of conscience. After six long years of litigaton, our clients have finally prevailed against a state government determined to coerce them and all pro-life pharmacists into violating their deeply held religious beliefs or give up their livelihoods. Judge Belzs decision makes clear that both Illinois state law and the First Amendment will not permit this." ...

What has led to the diminished role for practical reason in the way the bishops understand conscience? Two key conceptual matters come to mind, both taken from concerns laid down by Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI. One is the sharp opposition to the "creative conscience" outlined by John Paul II in the 1993 papal encyclical called "Veritatis Splendor." In that document, John Paul criticized any number of developments in Catholic moral theology including one that argued that consciences use of practical reason in the face of a host of particulars could lay the basis for claiming occasional exceptions to the otherwise universal mandate of the moral law. But the pope said that this view of the "creative" possibilities of conscience had things precisely backwards. Its not the creative use of practical reason that should determine what is morally required in a particular situation. Rather, its the moral law-"requiring meticulous observance," as John Paul put it-that determines what reason ...
It goes something like this: Dear Christians, thank you for feeding, housing, and caring for the poor, but unless you do it in the manner we prefer, advancing the worldview we prefer - even to the point of adopting the personnel policies we demand - we will use all the power of law and public shame to bring you into compliance. Well pass laws that violate your conscience. Well call you bigots or misogynists when you resist. And all the while, the fact that you actually do serve and sustain (physically and spiritually) millions of Americans will be lost and ignored.. This is how activists justify tossing from campus Christian groups that do an immense of amount of good works simply because they dont consent to being led by a lesbian who doesnt believe in their statement of faith. This is how legislators pass laws that will reduce the number of adoption agencies rather than allow Catholic or other Christian agencies to follow their most basic principles when placing children in loving homes. ...

Palestinian Political Prisoners and People of Conscience By Eileen Fleming. Al-Jazeerah, CCUN, May 15, 2012. Maybe Israel dodged a bullet on the 64th anniversary of Al Nakba Day, which was nearly a month after 2,000 Palestinian political prisoners began a hunger strike, which ended Monday night upon reaching an agreement with the Israeli Prison Service (IPS) to attain certain core demands. Two of the hunger strikers have not eaten for 78 days and thats eight days longer than IRA prisoner Bobby Sands, when he died on his strike in 1981. Bilal Diab and Thaer Halahleh have said they will not start eating again until their administrative detentions are lifted. Both men are members of Islamic Jihad, but they were never charged with anything, and its still not clear why theyre still being held or if, they will be released.. Among the demands raised in the collective hunger strike, included an end to the IPS abusive use of isolation for SECURITY reasons.. Juan E. M ndez, the Special Rapporteur on ...

His father thought it so vulgar of his son to write a book in Dutch that he evicted him, and the celebrated novelist of the future started for Antwerp, with a fortune which was strictly confined to two francs and a bundle of clothes. An old schoolfriend found him in a street and took him home. Soon people of standing, amongst them the painter Gustaf Wappers, showed interest in the unfortunate young man. Wappers even gave him a suit of clothes and eventually presented him to King Leopold I, who ordered the Wonderjaer to be added to the libraries of every Belgian school. But it was with Leopolds patronage that Conscience published his second book, Fantasy, in 1837. A small appointment in the provincial archives relieved him from the actual pressure of want, and, in 1838, he made his first great success with the historical novel De Leeuw van Vlaenderen (The Lion of Flanders), which still holds its place as one of his masterpieces, the influence of which extended far beyond the literary sphere. ...
Every philosopher (e.g. scientist) is slave of some formalism and tends to apply it as much as possible to any reality aspects. This is indeed a form of bias and my bias, recently, is that I tend to interpret everything in terms of bias/variance… So why not pushing this to the extreme and applying it to nothing less than the hardest issue of science and philosophy? conscience, as simple as that…. In particular I will aim here to address issues like: does conscience exist really, what is its function, may robots have one, and so on…. Lets go straight to the end of my reasoning: we could use the bias/variance formalism, useful to describe any learning procedure, to support the idea that conscience is not only an epiphenomenon but rather a necessary component of every rational cognitive process. In particular conscience is required for interacting with a complex multivariate, multi agent and uncertain reality where the criterion of effectiveness/success of such interaction is complex, ...

Rapid environmental degradation in China makes understanding how perceived exposure to environmental harm influences environmental attitudes and participation in pro-environmental behaviors among the Chinese people crucial. We used a nation-wide survey dataset in urban China to test two hypotheses: experiencing environmental harm directly affects environmental behavior; environmental attitudes mediate the relationship between experiencing environmental harm and environmental behavior. We found respondents who experienced environmental harm had more pro-environmental attitudes. Experiencing environmental harm positively influenced pro-environmental behavior both directly and indirectly through the mediation of pro-environmental attitudes. Among the pro-environmental behaviors, environmental litigation was most strongly related with exposure to environmental harm. Our results suggest that more participation in pro-environmental behaviors may be expected as rapid economic development increases ...
Conscientious objectors to the killing of others-whether through war, abortion, infanticide or euthanasia usually pay quite a high price for taking such a stand, if only in having to bear the opprobrium of opposing voices; some, however, lose their jobs altogether or at least the likelihood of promotion even if they remain in post.1 Leading medical journals,2 ,3 including this one,4 have at least up to now appeared increasingly intolerant in recent years of conscientious objection in medicine.. The recently published consensus statement of an ethics summit on the topic begins, Healthcare practitioners primary obligations are towards their patients, not towards their own personal conscience.5 This arguably creates a false antithesis from the start. Conscientious objection to killing is primarily about obligations to patients in the minds of most such objectors. The consensus statement goes … ...

"When she explained that her moral standing was not going to change, it was thought best that she work in another department", Mason said. ...
Last year the Victorian parliament passed the Abortion Law Reform Act, the freest abortion laws in the world. The new laws have opened the floodgates to late-term abortions, right up to and including nine months.. While the deep moral conflicts between pro-lifers and pro-choicers are long-running, the current law has brought to the fore a whole new issue of unprecedented discrimination.. An unheralded section in the Act and a world first, section 8(1), takes away the right of medical practitioners with a conscientious objection to abortion to decline any involvement in the act of abortion. These practitioners are now forced to supply the names of other health professionals willing to perform, direct, authorise or supervise an abortion.. This new law has flagrantly stripped away the rights of doctors to decline any involvement in an abortion. The legal requirement of a pro-life doctor to refer a patient to a pro-abortion doctor cannot be dismissed as inconsequential. Nor can it be argued that the ...
A national conscience can be a very strange thing, especially when the nation involved is America. It is not quite the same as the conscience of an individual human being, the chief difference being that it tends to operate after the event; that is, it functions less to keep society from sin than to bring about a return to first principles after the sin has been committed. It is the embodiment of the nations prevailing moral values, the deep essence of the lasting beliefs that give the nation its character; to trace its history is to examine the faith of an entire people and to see how that faith is perennially readjusted under the pressure of a changing environment.. Such a historical study is performed by Roger Burlingame in a brooding, thoughtful book entitled The American Conscience. Its great virtue is that it provides a new viewpoint from which to survey what the American people have done and what they have failed to do, and it leaves one once more with the feeling that the American ...
David Cameron answered: "A short answer first then a longer one. My personal view about that is no. I think abortion votes, and votes on embryology, and votes on all of those things should be free votes. They are matters of conscience and on the last embryology bill weve just had I pushed very hard (if you remember, the Prime Minister wanted to have whipped votes like they had whipped votes in the House of Lords) and I said this is wrong; this is a conscience issue; this is one where MPs have got to examine their consciences, listen to their constituents, and explain their positions and it should always be a free vote. So it should always be a free vote. My own view is yes, I think that we should change the abortion limit down from 24 towards 20 weeks; I voted that way and I think it would be right to do that. But in the case of parents who have medical evidence that they may have a very disabled child, I would not want to change that. And I speak as someone, I mean, Ive got a six year old ...
I find this straightforward defense of work in the law inspiring because Americans United for Life was founded two years before Roe v. Wade was decided, out of concern for the increasing hostility to life that was even then becoming entrenched in American law. As the legal architects of the prolife movement, Pope John Paul IIs recognition of the key role of the law has been a true source of inspiration and encouragement.. His explication of the foundational importance of human dignity provides the antidote to the pernicious idea that abortion is a purely personal and private act. In fact, he argues that a "collective conscience" - one that is ennobled by an understanding and a recognition of the imperatives of natural law - this conscience is the protector of the dignity of the human person. Without this societal mooring, peace becomes "illusory" and democracy itself becomes "an empty word.". It is here that Pope John Paul II is speaking directly and prophetically to a culture whose conscience ...

Then you come to the difficult question of, how do we assess, A, the sincerity of the conscience? Now part of that was in my answer to Prof. Meilaender, that historically what weve done - and the classic case was war, a conscientious objection to war - and then the willingness to pay the price, and it became a negotiated price within the society of willingness to be in the medical corps or willingness to - or go to jail or go to exile. But there were prices that were attached to it. When you get into the medical side of it, a part of the issue becomes, in using the pharmacy bit as the early example, saying, Well, if you find this offensive and we, as a community, insist upon this, then you may choose not to practice, and there the real test, I think, there becomes a legislative one, certainly not a judicial one. But the enactment of the law saying, if as a society, we believe that this violation forth sincerely held would be so appalling to the conscience of a civilized society or to an ...
COOPER: Tonight taking what if to the Nth Degree. But for a bullet fired as the sun was going down in the city of Memphis on Thursday, the fourth of April, 1968, we might still have the man himself among us to celebrate instead of just this day bearing his name. Martin Luther King Jr. was only 39 that day in Tennessee. Barring other kinds of bad luck, he would probably still be around to turn 76 this past Saturday. There would have been a fine party for him Im sure. Instead we have observances, memorials, speeches about him, not by him. Wonder what hed be saying these days in that warm round even voice of his. It would be ludicrous of course worse than ludicrous to guess what might now be moving Martin Luther King to speak out after all you never know what your conscience is going to say and that is what he was. This countrys conscience. Pretty often youd rather your conscience hadnt piped up at all. It tends to say things that are bothersome to hear, upsetting, inconvenient, embarrassing, ...
A report in the October issue of the Archives of General Psychiatry suggests that people who are more conscientious are less likely to develop Alzheimers disease. Conscientiousness refers to a persons tendency to control their impulses, be goal-directed and be reliable. Over a 12-year period researchers from Rush University Medical School studied 997 older Catholic nuns, priests and monks none of whom had Alzheimers at the start of the study. Their conscientiousness was assessed by a questionnaire and those who were most conscientous had an 89% lower risk of developing Alzheimers than those who were least conscientious. However, conscientiousness did not affect the tangles and plaques in the brain associated with the condition. The researchers thought that conscientiousness might be linked to educational or occupational success, both of which reduce the incidence of Alzheimers, and that conscientiousness improved peoples resilience and ability to cope with difficulties. Conscientiousness ...
This policy sets out the legal obligations under the Code for physicians to provide health services without discrimination, as well as the Colleges professional and ethical expectations of physicians in meeting those obligations. This policy also sets out physicians duty to accommodate individuals who may face barriers to accessing care. Finally, this policy outlines physicians rights to limit the health services they provide for legitimate reasons while upholding their fiduciary duty to their patients.
To be honest, the following is a controversy Id never have expected to see. Apparently, a subset of healthcare professionals have decided that they dont want to get an H1N1 flu shot. And were not
The Trump administrations new birth control rule is raising questions among some doctors and researchers, who say it overlooks known benefits of contraception while selectively citing data that raise doubts about effectiveness and safety. "This rule is listing things that are not scientifically validated, and in some cases things that are wrong, to try to justify a decision that is not in the best interests of women and society," said Dr. Hal Lawrence, CEO of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, a professional society representing womens health specialists.. Two recently issued rules - one addressing religious objections and the other, moral objections - allow more employers to opt out of covering birth control as a preventive benefit for women under the Obama health care law. Although the regulations ultimately address matters of individual conscience and religious teaching, they also dive into medical research and scholarly studies on birth control.. Its on the science ...

CNSNews.com) - The Justice Department will defend against any legal challenge to the new Obama administration mandate to force employers to provide abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization and contraception, even if it goes against their conscience, Attorney General Eric Holder told a House subcommittee Tuesday.. The Department of Health and Human Services rule, part of Obamacare, violates the freedom of conscience for Catholics and other religious groups that expressed their objections to the mandate, opponents say. Already there is litigation asserting that the rule violates the First Amendments guarantee to free exercise of religion.. "I think I would respectfully disagree in the sense that I dont think the rule that HHS promulgated was one that ran counter to the religious prohibitions that are contained in the First Amendment," Holder said.. "Thats especially true looking at the compromise the president and Secretary [Kathleen] Sebelius put in place," Holder told the House Appropriations ...
Because of this emphasis on natural law, the Catholic Church has moral objections not just to the use of birth-control pills and sterilization procedures but also to in vitro fertilization.. The Social Principles of the United Methodist Book of Discipline, the denominations law book, discuss family planning in the context of "The Right to Health Care." It affirms "the right of men and women to have access to comprehensive reproductive health/family planning information and services that will serve as a means to prevent unplanned pregnancies, reduce abortions, and prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS." The passage cites John 10:10b, which quotes Jesus: "I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.". The United Methodist Church diverges from Roman Catholic thinking in "the importance it gives to individual conscience as well as its recognition of the complexities involved," said the Rev. Gary B. MacDonald, the director of Advanced Ministerial Studies at Southern Methodist Universitys ...
As Tevington comments at the close of his analysis,. When we do not shy away from the destructiveness of abortifacients/contraceptives, our arguments and witness can be enormously more effective. A case in point is the response to a 6/6/12 piece in the NY Times, which had maintained that: "Leading scientists say studies . . . provide strong evidence that Plan B does not prevent implantation, and no proof that a newer type of pill, Ella, does. . . . Controversy over emergency contraception is figuring in the presidential race and debates over the Obama administrations healthcare law." Many experts responded with factual information exposing where the New York Times had gone awry by using the facts to debunk the phony sham which the Times has consistently preached as fact. Among them is Pharmacist for Life Internationals president Karen Brauer, who wrote: Laughably entertaining is the suggestion that there is no time for levonorgestrel [clinical name for morning-after pill] to affect thickness ...
If God "has no moral duties" and no "moral obligations" or prohibitions, it really makes no sense to call God "moral" in the first place. What William Lane Craig is describing here is a completely amoral being -- a being that cannot even conceive of morality, much less act morally and exist in any sort of moral relationship. Its little wonder, then, that it would be described as massacring large numbers of people without second thought or a tiny twinge of the conscience. It has no conscience. No empathy. No moral sense whatsoever. That would all be bad enough, if such a being existed, but William Lane Craig goes farther by insisting that we all somehow have a moral obligation to do whatever this amoral being commands. Why? Simply because it commands it -- not because its a "moral" act but simply because this being is too powerful to oppose. Thats the length and breadth of William Lane Craigs conception of morality: blind obedience to whomever or whatever is most powerful and in control. Of ...
Physician Refuses to Provide in Vitro Fertilization for Lesbian Couple"; "Pharmacist Refuses to Fill Prescription…for a Teenager Getting an IUD." Most Americans have seen such headlines publicizing what some medical providers call "conscientious objection" to giving some kinds of care - like abortions, or other reproductive health procedures. But do these cases make sense?. The concept of conscientious objection arose during the Revolutionary War as a moral response to being forced into military combat - but as pointed out by a recent opinion piece in the New England Journal of Medicine by historian Ronit Stahl and bioethicist Ezekiel Emanuel, the obligations of medical professionals are simply not analogous to those of citizens subject to military conscription, and the same framework should not apply. Nevertheless, legislatures have aided and abetted refusals of basic care by passing laws that allow professionals to make such excuses with little concern for patients needs - or due attention ...
The ideas of right and wrong, merit and demerit, happiness and misery, are respectively linked each to each in the necessary convictions of the human mind. That virtue and well-being, guilt and ill-being, ought to go together, are absolute truths, as absolute as the difference between truth and falsehood, as absolute as the truth that two and two make four; it is as impossible to conceive the contrary in the one case as in the others. And though in the moral world the fact may contradict the judgment, we do not on that account abandon the judgment; we still believe that virtue deserves to be happy, that crime deserves punishment . That state where virtue and well-being are perfectly united, we call a state of perfect moral order; where this is not the case, it is a state of disorder or imperfection. The present world is plainly not such a state as the judgments of reason and conscience demand; and yet we cannot cease thus to judge; conscience still imposes its unconditional command, still passes ...
In these pages, I recently argued that Catholics and others must not comply with the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) mandate requiring virtually all employers to provide health insurance to their employees that would cover direct sterilization and contraceptive drugs and devices, including those which may cause abortions. The discussion there focused primarily on a defense of conscience and religious liberty. Here I would like to explain further why, as a matter of a well-formed conscience, Catholics must not compromise the demands of the moral law and their own faith by obeying the mandate. The US bishops witness to moral truth In its most recent statement on this matter, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) gave several examples, including the HHS mandate, in which religious liberty is currently under attack in our society, and spoke prophetically about the need to defend this most cherished freedom. The bishops rightly state that the mandate ...

And hence your duty to uphold the Act in its entirety, not just the portions of the act with which you may "personally" agree.. We would like to draw your attention to ...
2. The Church teaches that abortion or euthanasia is a grave sin. The Encyclical Letter Evangelium vitae, with reference to judicial decisions or civil laws that authorize or promote abortion or euthanasia, states that there is a "grave and clear obligation to oppose them by conscientious objection. [...] In the case of an intrinsically unjust law, such as a law permitting abortion or euthanasia, it is therefore never licit to obey it, or to take part in a propaganda campaign in favour of such a law or vote for it" (no. 73). Christians have a "grave obligation of conscience not to cooperate formally in practices which, even if permitted by civil legislation, are contrary to Gods law. Indeed, from the moral standpoint, it is never licit to cooperate formally in evil. [...] This cooperation can never be justified either by invoking respect for the freedom of others or by appealing to the fact that civil law permits it or requires it" (no. 74 ...

larger public.". The first part of that sentence is important. Yes, the considerations of serious health risks to the child and the public at large must be weighed; that doesnt change the first part of the sentence which ultimately reaffirms a parents right at the end of the day, after these considerations are taken into account, to conscientously refuse to obtain a vaccine derived from aborted human fetal tissue if it is unbearable to their conscience to accept such a vaccine. When one stops to consider that most of the U.S. population is vaccinized and will likely continue to be in the future (including most Catholics), I would contend that the large-scale effect on public health due to a tiny percentage of conscientious Catholics refusing the vaccine for the moral concerns cited is negligible. It sounds to me like the Vatican ultimately leaves this as a matter of individual conscience, provided prudential judgment is made in reaching the decision to accept or refuse the vaccination. Yes, ...
I presume you mean section 73, which reads as follows:. "73. Abortion and euthanasia are thus crimes which no human law can claim to legitimize. There is no obligation in conscience to obey such laws; instead there is a grave and clear obligation to oppose them by conscientious objection. From the very beginnings of the Church, the apostolic preaching reminded Christians of their duty to obey legitimately constituted public authorities (cf. Rom 13:1-7; 1 Pet 2:13-14), but at the same time it firmly warned that "we must obey God rather than men" (Acts 5:29). In the Old Testament, precisely in regard to threats against life, we find a significant example of resistance to the unjust command of those in authority. After Pharaoh ordered the killing of all newborn males, the Hebrew midwives refused. "They did not do as the king of Egypt commanded them, but let the male children live" (Ex 1:17). But the ultimate reason for their action should be noted: "the midwives feared God" (ibid.). It is precisely ...
Above all, society must learn to embrace once more the great gift of life, to cherish it, to protect it, and to defend it against the culture of death, itself an expression of the great fear that stalks our times.. He added,. [T]here are signs of an almost unimaginable insensitivity to the reality of what actually happens during an abortion, as evidenced in recent events surrounding so-called partial-birth abortion. This is a cause for deep concern. A society with a diminished sense of the value of human life at its earliest stages has already opened the door to a culture of death. As Pastors, you must make every effort to ensure that there is no dulling of consciences regarding the seriousness of the crime of abortion -- a crime which cannot be morally justified by any circumstance, purpose or law.. Each of us has specific talents that will contribute to the refining of conscience that has to take place in America. Each of us has an obligation to make time for using those talents in a ...

The states duty of religious neutrality results from an evolving interpretation of freedom of conscience and religion. The evolution of Canadian society has given rise to a concept of this neutrality according to which the state must not interfere in religion and beliefs. The state must instead remain neutral in this regard, which means that it must neither favour nor hinder any particular belief, and the same holds true for non‑belief. The pursuit of the ideal of a free and democratic society requires the state to encourage everyone to participate freely in public life regardless of their beliefs. A neutral public space free from coercion, pressure and judgment on the part of public authorities in matters of spirituality is intended to protect every persons freedom and dignity, and it helps preserve and promote the multicultural nature of Canadian society. The states duty to protect every persons freedom of conscience and religion means that it may not use its powers in such a way as to ...

In his sermon Rev. Griswold addressed the issue of whether a person might be punished by the government for the content of his speech only, i.e., whether it should be permissible to legally punish someone for expressing an opinion that is contrary to "conscience." Rev. Griswold takes the broad position that no one should be punished for their opinions as a general matter. Specifically, he says, "The position therefore is doubtless true with respect to what is strictly opinion, that a man ought not to be molested in any shape for his opinions, be they what they may." However, Rev. Griswold first questioned whether speech that is contrary to "conscience" should be free from punishment. He continues: "But the divulging of an opinion with the wanton view to excite broils and cause needless dissensions, or to influence others to do evil, is quite a different thing. This is an overt act, and, as the case may be, an evident immorality." In other words, he agreed that each person was entitled to freedom ...

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states, "Moral conscience, present at the heart of the person, enjoins him at the appropriate moment to do good and to avoid evil. It also judges particular choices, approving those that are good and denouncing those that are evil.". In this rendering, it is as if an unseen umpire sits somewhere in our minds and judges our actions.. But if the conscience is formed from birth and as the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy suggests, "is like an empty box that can be filled with any type of moral content," then our learning and understanding is the umpire and not some innate righteous force.. Is this why seemingly reasonable people see things so differently?. Take, for example, the Black Lives Matter movement. According to a recent CBS/YouGov poll, a majority of the American public, including more than half of white Americans, say they agree with the Black Lives Matter movements ideas.. The June CBS/YouGov survey also found a partisan divide exists on the issue ...

Introduction. Frankenstein, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and The Island of Dr. Moreau are excellent examples of Gothic fiction. These stories deal with the forces of good against evil. The good forces are the family, social conscience, religious belief and moral judgement, all constituents of a civilised society. The evil side is the corruption of conscience, the misuse of power, violation of nature and rampant ego. The themes of each work explore the dual nature of mankind. Behind the benevolent face of civilisation there still lurks the beast within every man and it is this fear that the protagonists exploit to justify their blasphemous experiments. The brooding gothic background is powerful vehicle for writers to express their unease regarding the imbalance between nature, science, man and spirituality. Frankenstein is the story of a brilliant chemist who discovers the elixir of life and sets himself up as a creator. The second story is The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr ...
Recent interest in the functions and structure of the health care system in the United States has focused chiefly on hospital facilities for acute care, on arrangements for care of the ambulatory patient, and on the desire for more "preventive medicine" by clinical practitioners. Chronic care has received some attention from Federal funding agencies that administer Medicare and Medicaid legislation but has not been a nidus of innovative planning by the clinical community or its professional organizations.. In this issue, Smits and Draper discuss some of the contrasts between the American and British systems, especially the care of the elderly ...
sources Ms Panjabi said However experts on Hinduism contacted by the Canadian media were baffled They said that there was no Hindu belief which would preclude wearing an FM transmitter Apparently this is a long standing conviction of Ms Panjabi because a similar incident arose in 1996 That ended up with the University giving her an exemption from having to wear such devices Memorial University issued a statement acknowledging that it had a duty to accommodate students with disabilities But in rare circumstances such as this where a student s request for an accommodation engages a competing legal right the university must determine the validity of the legal rights and seek a balance that fully respects the importance of both sets of rights Commenting on the case in the Impact Ethics blog Jackie Leach a hearing impaired bioethicist at Newcastle University in the UK argued that religious beliefs should defer to disability Standoffs like these are increasingly common as the claims of oppressed ...
A student must be fully immunized against certain diseases or must present a certificate or statement that, for medical reasons or reasons of conscience, including a religious belief, the student will not be immunized. For exemptions based on reasons of conscience, only official forms issued by the Texas Department of State Health Services, Immunization Branch, can be honored by the district. The immunizations required are: diphtheria, rubeola (measles), rubella (German measles), mumps, tetanus, pertussis, poliomyelitis, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and varicella (chicken pox). The school nurse can provide information on age-appropriate doses or on an acceptable physician-validated history of illness required by the Department of State Health Services. Proof of immunization may be established by personal records from a licensed physician or public health clinic with a signature or rubber-stamp validation ...

What has happened to our moral sensibility? Did we ever have any? What do these words mean? Do they refer to a term very rarely employed these days conscience? A conscience to do not only with our own acts but to do with our shared responsibility in the acts of others? Is all this dead? Look at Guantanamo Bay. Hundreds of people detained without charge for over three years, with no legal representation or due process, technically detained forever. This totally illegitimate structure is maintained in defiance of the Geneva Convention. It is not only tolerated but hardly thought about by whats called the international community. This criminal outrage is being committed by a country, which declares itself to be the leader of the free world. Do we think about the inhabitants of Guantanamo Bay? What does the media say about them? They pop up occasionally a small item on page six. They have been consigned to a no mans land from which indeed they may never return. At present many are on hunger ...
The general line between animals that should be protected from suffering (mammals) and animals that do not (mosquitoes) generally is connected the level of conscience and their desire to live. Gaea is sometimes interpreted as affording the whole earth a sense of being and a sort of collective conscience. Genes within a genome of a species of animal or plant (or other life-form) has a form of intelligence where genes that result in increased survival and ultimately the successful reproduction of individuals who have such a gene being active, are selectively increased in percentage among the population of that genome. Because of this, the genome of the population can be seen as a being that strives to survive and adapts accordingly. I feel a moral urge to respect this desire to live among genomes of different species.

The general line between animals that should be protected from suffering (mammals) and animals that do not (mosquitoes) generally is connected the level of conscience and their desire to live. Gaea is sometimes interpreted as affording the whole earth a sense of being and a sort of collective conscience. Genes within a genome of a species of animal or plant (or other life-form) has a form of intelligence where genes that result in increased survival and ultimately the successful reproduction of individuals who have such a gene being active, are selectively increased in percentage among the population of that genome. Because of this, the genome of the population can be seen as a being that strives to survive and adapts accordingly. I feel a moral urge to respect this desire to live among genomes of different species. This respect for genomes comes into conflict at times of respect for the desire to live among individuals within that genomes species. I will use an extreme example to illustrate ...
Last two decades have seen an enormous change in our lifestyles, behaviors, work-styles and the way we manage our lives on a daily basis. Even though we today attend to the minutest details of our lives to cope up with the fast changing and evolving world around, we pay little or no attention to our…
I dont know about the law, but religious freedom is a serious issue, and its increasingly so, and I think people that act on their conscience shouldnt be discriminated against, for sure," Bush said. "There should be protections, and so, as it relates to marriage equality - and that may change, the Supreme Court may change that. That automatically then shifts the focus to people of conscience, and, I dont know, have their faith make - they want to act on their faith, and may not be able to be employed for example." ...
When I read that, something clicked for me. Possibly there are only two true classes in the world; Im still not sure. But even if that is the case, there are not just two philosophies: idealism and materialism. There are actually three. There is mechanical materialism, according to which only the material is real; the spiritual is a shadowy offshoot, insubstantial, illusory, deceptive. Then there is idealism, in which only ideas are real; the material is the shadowy derivative, the illusion. Then there is what I call dialectical realism, what Mao calls dialectical materialism, in which matter is real and spirit is real, and they constantly interact. My teachers problem was, I then realized, not necessarily her Marxism at all. It was her American university training. Her materialism was the home-grown scientism and positivism of the good old U.S. of A. It is a genuine irony of the American left, to me, that they have needed atheism and materialism as their identity papers, when their thirst for ...
No, my beef is only with Medscape, and the sources (recruiters, interviews, surveys) they used that looked mostly at the economics of practice, not the environment affecting the care of patients. As a result, there is an inherently conservative bias built into Medscapes analysis, because by emphasizing higher physician earnings, lower cost of living, fewer malpractice suits and lower taxes over health outcomes and the percentage uninsured, its rates more favorably the states that are hostile to government programs to help cover people and reduce healthcare disparities, and less favorably the states that have more activist governmental programs to reduce the ranks of the uninsured and healthcare disparities, often requiring higher taxes to pay for such programs. ...
What happens when religious institutions get to manage public funds, absorb secular hospitals, and put theology above medical science and individual patient conscience? Individual freedom of conscience - and health - suffers.

Mr. Speaker, this bill is a very controversial subject across our land. It is probably third only to the recent bills that we have seen go through this place, one on the question of marriage and the other being Bill C-250. There are hundreds of people who have written who are concerned about Bill C-13. They are concerned about the view that this Parliament would reflect on humanity itself, the value of life and the dignity of life if we embark upon some of the measures provided for in this legislation.. Someone has said that this is not an issue of religion or conscience. I would suggest it really is an issue of conscience whether one is religious or not. I was reminded of that remark recently in the United States when we heard of someone who was fined something like $25,000 for destroying an eagles egg. I am remembering the burrowing owls that we have in Canada and the endangered species legislation that we are looking at where people could be fined for even destroying the habitat or the ...
TJM said: Who is Shrub the Second? Oh, I forgot, the first real Catholic American president, except to lefties and abortion supporters.. Okay, "Shrub the Second" is disrespectful, but really, I wish people wouldnt say such silly, embarrassing things as calling President Bush "the first real Catholic American president.". TJ said: This is absurd. I can vote, in good conscience, for the candidate I think will help this country and our people the best.. Not if you have a properly formed conscience you cant. Judging from your comment, its evident that yours has not been properly formed in the Catholic faith.. Abortion is morally evil and needs to be stopped, but so is helping starving children remain malnourished. I dont know of any candidates running this year on a platform of helping starving children remain malnourished, but I know of a candidate who is running on a platform of explicit and unapologetic support for the mass slaughter of babies.. elderly people not receiving the medical care ...
The report, released by Health Care for America Now (HCAN), uses data compiled by the American Medical Association to show that 94 percent of the countrys insurance markets are defined as "highly concentrated," according to Justice Department guidelines. Predictably, thats led to skyrocketing costs for patients, and monster profits for the big health insurers. Premiums have gone up over the past six years by more than 87 percent, on average, while profits at ten of the largest publicly traded health insurance companies rose 428 percent from 2000 to 2007. ...
Within democratic societies, a deep division exists over the nature of community and the grounds for political life. Should the political order be neutral between competing conceptions of the good life or should it be based on some such conception? This book addresses one crucial set of problems raised by this division: What bases should officials and citizens employ in reaching political decisions and justifying their positions? Should they feel free to rely on whatever grounds seem otherwise persuasive to them, like religious convictions, or should they restrict themselves to
8] The sad reality is that people with disabilities face even greater risks today. Present threats to life-abortion, euthanasia, and assisted suicide-are often aimed against disabling conditions. A fetal abnormality is routinely considered a death warrant, not a diagnosis.[9] Withholding food or treatment from certain disabled newborns has become an open secret.[10] Disabled adults are told that, by electing suicide with the caring help of others, they assert their autonomy by choosing to make themselves dead.[11] Presently, pre-natal testing, such as amniocentesis, can detect about 70 different anomalous conditions.[12] Fetuses with Down syndrome, spina bifida, and anencephaly are virtually always aborted; those with less debilitating conditions, such as Turner and Klinefelter syndromes, are aborted more often than not.[13] Further, pre-implantation testing now permits the elimination of embryos immediately following a diagnosis of suspected genetic or chromosomal defects.[14] As detection ...
Its not a big leap from pharmacists to firefighters. Down the road a bit from Sisterfuck is Millegdeville, Georgia, where Brittany Cartrett had a miscarriage. She needed assistance passing the miscarried fetus, so her doctor prescribed her Misoprostol, a pill that would help her complete what had started naturally, if sadly. When her doctor called local Walmart to have it filled, the pharmacist on duty refused to do so because, as she later told Cartrett, "I couldnt think of a valid reason why you would need this prescription." Misoprostol can be used to induce abortion, which is why it would be effective after a miscarriage. When Cartrett explained why she needed it, the pharmacist said, "Well, I dont feel like there is a reason why you would need it, so we refused to fill it ...
The defectors told the newspaper that Miscavige was a serial abuser of his staff. "The issue wasnt the physical pain of it," Rinder said. "Its the fact that the domination youre getting--hit in the face, kicked--and you cant do anything about it. If you did try, youd be attacking the C.O.B."--the chairman of the board. Tom De Vocht, a defector who had been a manager at the Clearwater spiritual center, told the paper that he, too, had been beaten by Miscavige; he said that from 2003 to 2005 he had witnessed Miscavige striking other staff members as many as a hundred times. Rathbun, Rinder, and De Vocht all admitted that they had engaged in physical violence themselves. "It had become the accepted way of doing things," Rinder said. Amy Scobee said that nobody challenged the abuse because people were terrified of Miscavige. Their greatest fear was expulsion: "You dont have any money. You dont have job experience. You dont have anything. And he could put you on the streets and ruin you ...

A few years ago WorldNet Daily News, now WND.com, ran a story about young Barry Soetoro, now known as Barack Hussein Obama, when he was in school in Indonesia. I dont have a link to that story any more but if my memory is correct it involved an interview with one of Barrys teachers. The teacher said she remembered a striking conversation in which Barry once told her: "When I grow up Im going to be president of the United States." Now every parent at one time or another has heard their children make extraordinary claims such as "Im going to be an astronaut." because they are nothing more than wishful thinking. But sometimes children repeat things that they hear from their parents, too. So what do we make of a much older boy who makes that same claim while attending college? WND.com has a few stories about a Chicago-area mailman named Allen Hulton who delivered mail on the street where the mother of Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers lived. The mailman remembers that one day he met a ...
02/21/06 ICH -- -- Blaring its typical jarringly cacophonous morning radio jabber, the suddenly welcome sound of my alarm rescued me from the maelstrom of a nightmarish Neocon world spawned within my unconscious mind. As consciousness flooded my being, I had an epiphany. My breed of human being is a pariah in the American Empire. In the minds of the Regimes loyal foot soldiers (the Neo-Tories of the Twenty First Century) American society is waging a domestic war between those they define as liberals and those they qualify as conservatives. Since 9/11, Fox News and the Bush Regime have brain-washed them into believing that terrorists and their sympathizers are lurking around every corner, poised to infect them with a lethal virus, slice them with box cutters or obliterate them with a suicide bomb. In the black and white perspective of the Neo-Tories, you are with us or against us. If you do not fit into their narrow and misguided notion of conservatism, you must be a liberal. The American ...

When the Romos traveled for conferences outside of Austin, they sought out galleries that specialized in Latino, and more particularly, Chicano Art. They were single-minded in their acquisition criteria. "We travel and go to lots of museums and it is tempting, say in Santa Fe, to buy some Southwestern Art, but we stop ourselves and ask, do you have any Chicano, Latino or Mexican American Art?" To those thinking about collecting, Ricardo also advises, "If youre interested, let your heart and your passion lead you." To which Harriett adds "and stay focused.". They still buy through Self Help Graphics as well. When Sam Coronado told them about his idea to create a workshop in Austin using Self Help as a model, they came to his aid. They bought a series of the artists prints, enabling him to purchase a new space, which became Coronado Studio, where artists can practice serigraphy or silkscreening. Coronado also founded the Serie Project, a non-profit organization with a mission to create and ...
The Episcopal Church continues its conversations about doctrine in relation to same sex marriage and the blessing of same sex relationships, and there is yet no consensus. We continue to search for ways to honor the varied viewpoints of all our members and to provide a place of dignity and respect for each of them. Therefore, I also affirm that part of L.D. 1020 that states there will be no effort to compel or coerce any minister to act in a way contrary to his or her belief and conscience. There will certainly never be any requirement in the Episcopal Diocese of Maine to act in contravention of conscience or of church doctrine. It is my expectation that The Episcopal Church will continue to engage in this conversation for some years, even as I hope the rights and responsibilities of civil marriage will be extended to all Maine citizens ...
In THE ONLY WAY psychiatrist David Justin struggles with his conscience and battles powerful government forces to save his new family after he is recruited by the CIA to brainwash detainees in secret American prisons around the globe. [Amazing. Youve somehow managed to have two first sentences.] [The first first sentence would be stronger if it ended: . . . not to become its next victim. But even then its not accurate. He was already director of Arcadia when the CIA recruited him to brainwash detainees, which is what puts him in danger of becoming a victim of the war on terror, which probably doesnt happen anyway. The second first sentence has too much information. Were bored by struggles with conscience, Justins family, and vague powerful government forces. Keep the hot-button terms: secret prisons, brainwashing, the CIA. In THE ONLY WAY, psychiatrist David Justin takes on the CIA after he is recruited to brainwash detainees in secret American prisons.
