The ancient writers of Greece were concerned with the principle of
Plato considered the soul to be trapped within the body,
happily released upon death. Aristotle saw the body and soul as one
unit, the soul being the "life principle" of the body. Every
physician who graduates from a medical school in the United States
takes the Oath of Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, who lived
in Greece from about 450-375 BC.
The middle portion of the traditional Hippocratic Oath expressly forbids
abortion and euthanasia:
I will prescribe regimens for the good of my patients according to my
ability and my judgment and never do harm to anyone.
To please no one will I prescribe a deadly drug nor give advice which
may cause his death.
Nor will I give a woman a pessary to procure abortion. But I will preserve
the purity of my life and my art.
Jesus Christ gave us the Beatitudes as recorded in the New Testament of the Bible.
The Beatitudes are presented in a positive sense, virtues in life which will
ultimately lead to reward in Heaven. He taught us the Golden Rule in the Sermon
on the Mount: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" (Matthew 7:12).
He taught us the two greatest commandments are to love God and to love your neighbor
as yourself (Matthew 22:36-40, Mark 12:28-31, Luke 10:25-28). St. Paul taught us
to respect the human body, for our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit (I Corinthians 6:19).
Thus the tradition of Western Christian civilization and American medicine is founded
upon the Biblical ethic and the traditions of our Greco-Roman heritage.
