Dear AAPLOG Colleague,
Several of the lectures from our January Educational meeting are posted on our website under “Media Resource.” These are in MP3 format, along with the power point presentation. Either or both can be downloaded. Currently up are Joel Brind on Abortion-Breast Cancer, Priscilla Coleman on Abortion and Mental Health, and Freda Bush on the book “Hooked, New Science on Teen Brain and Sex.” Find all this and more at http://www.aaplog.org/media/
The exercise of Christian Conscience in Medicine continues to be an endangered species. This fight will not go away. To get up to speed, here is info from the Freedom2Care initiative that is engaged in this battle on our behalf.
Also, we strongly recommend that you go to Hippocraticregistry.com and sign on as a Hippocratic physican. United we stand, divided on this issue, and we will be defeated by the forces of secular government philosophy.
The Freedom2Care info:
Alert: Pro-life patients and physicians have been dealt a major setback by the Obama administration.
The administration recently gutted the only federal regulation protecting the exercise of conscience in health care.
While the administration could not legally get rid of the remaining federal laws protecting conscience, the gutting of the good regulation spells trouble for pro-life physicians and other professionals.

Thankfully, pro-life leaders in Congress have introduced several new bills to protect conscience rights in health care:
1. Abortion Non-Discrimination Act (H.R. 361)
2. No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act (H.R. 3)
3. Protect Life Act (H.R. 358)
To learn more about these bills, see:
What can I do?
* Phone or better yet, visit your Representative in the next few days while he or she should be in a district office near you. To find out the office contact information, see:
* If you cannot call or visit your Representative, you can write to your Representative here:
Simply tell your Representative that as a healthcare professional, you want to see strong conscience rights in health care and you are urging him or her to support the bills listed above.
By speaking out, you will be protecting the rights of pro-life healthcare professionals to practice medicine according to long-standing ethical standards.
Thank you for taking action
