Women who have abortions were twice as likely to drink alcohol at dangerous levels and three times as likely to become addicted to illegal drugs. To find out more about post- abortion effects and how to get help, the CMA has created this video to raise awareness about choice and consequences.  Choice and Consequences www.youtube.com This brief video discusses some of the consequences of choosing abortion on the mother, as narrated by someone who experienced those consequences.

Please reach out to your local Catholic radio stations to request them to play these ads for listeners to spread awareness about the issue of physician assisted suicide.   One: To love our neighbor, means we also love ourselves. Are you living without loving your neighbor as yourself? We can meet others only as far as we have met our self.  Do well onto others less fortunate, and God will reward you with the kingdom of heaven. The CMA supports your right to know.   Two: Do you really understand how physician assisted suicide effects your life and those of your loved ones. The consequences are difficult to understand. Some medical societies now support using strong sedatives to shorten the dying process, even in the absence of pain. They look at is as a way to remove the burden, that is the person from society. The Catholic Medical Association supports your right to know.   Three: Physicians should promote healing, and avoid or minimize harm. For a physician to assist a patient in taking their own life it implies that some lives are not worth living. Physicians are called to heal, provide comfort, and promote life; not to end life. God to cathmed.org to find out more. The CMA supports your right to know.   Four: Depression may result in people wanting to end their life as a way out. In Oregon 25% of patients were given overdoses to end their lives yet none of these patients were diagnosed or treated for depression. Depression can be treated with medicine or therapy, and results in patients no longer desiring to end their life. Often a request to end their life from a patient, is really translated as a cry for help, support, or sympathy. As a physician, care and support should be provided to the patient to promote healing. Five: Exact same ad as four. Six: Physicians are called to heal others, not conflict harm. When they can’t heal, they are to provide comfort and promote life; not to end it.   1.To love our neighbor, means we also love ourselves. 2.Do you really understand how physician assisted suicide effects your life and those of your loved ones. 3.Physicians should promote healing, and avoid or minimize harm. 4.Depression may result in people wanting to end their life as a way out. 5.Depression may result in people wanting to end their life as a way out. 6.Physicians are called to heal others, not conflict harm. 2016-01-11T20:17:00+00:00 The Pulse Magazine February 2016 Issue (Blog) Continue Reading the-pulse-magazine-february-2016-issue#When:20:17:00Z To read The Pulse Magazine, click on the link below. 2015-11-18T14:22:00+00:00 Seminar: Tools for handling disabilities (Blog) Continue Reading seminar-tools-for-handling-disabilities#When:14:22:00Z To understand the day-to-day lives of parents of children with disabilities, Francis X. McNesby offers this study of a group of mothers raising children with autism. The study, reported in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, measured the levels of cortisol, a hormone "that is released in response to increased levels of stress," said McNesby, a pediatrician with the Center for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children in Philadelphia. While stress levels tend to rise and fall during the day, the study found the women suffered from "chronic stress - the same patterns as soldiers in combat," McNesby said. That level of stress has particular meaning for parents of children with autism in this region. New Jersey has the nation's highest rate of autism, with one in 45 children diagnosed - a rate that includes one in 28 boys, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported in March 2014. The 2014 Pennsylvania Autism Census Update revealed that the number of Pennsylvanians with autism receiving services has reached more than 55,000 individuals - triple that of 2009.
