Catholic Medical Association to Join Tens of Thousands in 46th Annual March for Life
WASHINGTON, DC—Members of The Catholic Medical Association (CMA) will march through the streets of Washington, DC today to advocate for human rights. The annual March for Life brings together tens of thousands of pro-life organizations and leaders, marking the 46th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

“The physicians of the CMA, along with all people concerned for the sanctity of human life, are filled with joy at the outpouring of support for life at this event and other events in support of life around the country. We will continue our work and prayers in support of the cause of life and thank all those who are working or praying for this cause. We pray for all those impacted by abortion and for their healing, as well as for all who suffer with difficult pregnancies or the cross of miscarriage and those who long to bring a life into the world but have not been granted this gift,” said CMA President, Dr. John Schirger.

Medical Organization's Decision to Take a Neutral Stance on Physician-Assisted Suicide
PHILADELPHIA, PA—The Catholic Medical Association (CMA) today expressed deep disappointment and concern over the American Academy of Family Physicians’ (AAFP) decision to officially take a “neutral stance” on physician-assisted suicide. The move marks a shift in the American medical communities overall long and deeply held opposition to PAS.

“It is quite startling that the AAFP would be so diametrically opposed to the medical communities historical and long-standing opposition against physician-assisted suicide. It is in direct violation of the “do no harm” Hippocratic Oath. We at the CMA are dedicated to preserving life from conception (not birth) to natural death and will continue to remain staunchly opposed to any form of assisted suicide. It goes against natural law,” said CMA President Peter T. Morrow, MD.
