Future Medical Professionals for Life (FMPFL) is established for the expressed purposes of scientific, educational, and charitable missions. We aim to demonstrate the scientific evidence for fetal right to life nationally via establishing local chapters, consisting of students who intend to join the medical field in the coming future. We believe this perspective and mission to be unique and basing our mission purely in science, logic, and research. FMPFL is also committed to aiding pregnant and parenting students and community members through charitable means.
Future Medical Professionals for Life and affiliates believe:
Human life begins at conception;
Life is an unalienable right that cannot be infringed on by others;
All humans are valuable regardless of disability, age, race, sex, self-sufficiency, etc.
Three Pillars of Mission
Science: To rely on objective and researched truths of biology and other fields of study to support the fetal right to life and educate the broader public, especially future medical professionals, using these facts and statistics.
Schools: To reintegrate reliable and objective science into the higher education system, particularly that of pre-medical and professional schools, via empowering students to use their voice in the face of pressures of the profession.
Support: To provide practical and feasible resources to both future medical professionals and community members via provision of scholarships and referring to reliable life-affirming resources.
Restoring the Hippocratic Oath
The motto of Future Medical Professionals for Life is “Restoring the Hippocratic Oath.” The Hippocratic Oath, as originally written, stated:
So long as I maintain this Oath faithfully and without corruption, may it be granted to me to partake of life fully and the practice of my art, gaining the respect of all men for all time. However, should I transgress this Oath and violate it, may the opposite be my fate.”
The “modernized” version of the Hippocratic Oath – which not all medical schools require their students to take – does not include the provision against abortions. The understanding that life begins at fertilization is not new. It has been recognized long before modern medicine was able to confirm this fact. It is time the Hippocratic Oath is restored and the Physician is held responsible for all of life, not just those culture tells it to be.
