U.S. Catholic Medical Association focuses on freedom of conscience

600 Catholic physicians attending a four day conference in St. Paul, Minnesota, were warned that they are practising medicine in an increasingly toxic culture and that even physicians who do not follow Church teaching may be forced to do things that they believe to be wrong.  Bishop Robert Vasa of Santa Rosa, California told the audience that “American Catholic physicians, have to wake up to the fact that they can no longer presume that their individual choices about how they practice medicine in this country will be respected.”  John Brehany, the CMA’s executive director, described the current situation in the United States as a “very dangerous crisis.” [NCR]
