Catholic Medical Association (USA) member, Dr Peter Bleyer, recently sent a message to the South Carolina State legislature, calling for passage of the 2022 Human Life Protection Life. His comments have been highlighted in the February issue of the National Right to Life News:

“(In) addressing objections of the State Senate which killed the 2022 Human Life Protection Act, one particularly effective message came from pro-life physician Peter Bleyer, M.D. who wrote to the lawmakers, “As president of South Carolina’s Catholic Medical Guild and medical director of two SC crisis pregnancy centers, I have come to fully understand that it is our refusal to respect life in all its stages which has led to the general disrespect for our profession. If you lie about little things, you will lie about greater ones as well. In denying the humanity of the small, newly conceived human for financial gain, we denied our ethical duty to establish a doctor/patient relationship with the child in the womb and sold out to our patients…

Large physician groups have worked tirelessly since the 70s to convince America that not all life has equal value, dehumanizing that which physicians know better than anyone to be completely human. It is disappointing that government must legislate that which physicians have a natural ethical obligation to provide, but I thank you for doing so. Clearly it is necessary. Please pass H3774, the Human Life Protection Act and protect the most vulnerable members of our human family in South Carolina.”
