Part 13 The Pressure on Doctors to Prescribe Contraceptives

The original Hippocratic Oath included the following vow:  “Moreover, I will give no sort of medicine to any pregnant woman, with a view to destroy the child” and the guiding principle of physicians was Primum Non Nocere which is Greek for “First, do no harm,” but the Hippocratic Oath has been changed.  The guidelines and standards of contraception prescription have been promulgated by the Medical Societies for a culture that demands sex without respect and commitment. There is a great pressure on doctors today to prescribe hormonal contraceptives. Contraceptives are multibillion dollar business and the pharmaceutical industry spends enormous amounts of money to advertise these products.
