Ruth Inst. Summit to Reclaim Medical Professions

Of all of the professions captured by the Sexual Revolution, the medical profession can do the most harm. At the Ruth Institute’s Survivors’ Summit, “Reclaiming the Professions for Life and Family,” July 16-17 in Lake Charles, LA,the Medical Professionals Panel is of vital importance.

Ruth Inst. President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D., explained, “Untold damage is being done by groups like the American Medical Association in advancing the agenda of the Sexual Revolution.”

In June, the AMA said sex should be removed from birth certificates: “Designating sex on birth certificates as male or female… perpetuates the view that sex designation is permanent and fails to recognize the medical spectrum of gender identity.” It also “risks stifling an individual’s self-expression and self-identification and contributes to marginalization and minoritization.”

Morse responded: “The AMA is following non-science by endorsing the notion that sex is fluid and can change based on an individual’s whims. In reality, the sex you were born with is the sex you’ll have for the rest of your life, regardless of what you choose to do to your body.”

The panel at the Survivors Summit consists of three distinguished physicians:

  • Dr. Michael S. Parker, MD, KM, is the System Medical Director for OB/GYN at Hospitalists Mount Carmel in Columbus, Ohio. He is also President of the Catholic Medical Association. He has spoken nationally and internationally on a variety of topics, including family planning, infertility, and the side effects of contraception.
  • Dr. Quentin Van Meter, MD, FCP, President of the American College of Pediatricians, has a long history of advocating for children in the American Academy of Pediatrics. He is continually frustrated by the political bent of the National AAP, which is why he switched his affiliation to the ACPeds. Now he continues to work for children and families without being hampered by political correctness.

“These physicians are eminently well-qualified to discuss the dangers of politically correct advocacy by medical associations on issues such as transgenderism,” Morse said. “It’s high time for caring professionals grounded in the Hippocratic tradition to reclaim organizations such as the AMA and AAP.”

Attendance at the “Reclaiming the Professions for Life and Family” Summit can be in person or on-line with a Virtual Conference Pass. Early Bird registration pricing ends today, July 6.

The Ruth Institute is a global non-profit organization, leading an international interfaith coalition to defend the family and build a civilization of love.
