“Doctors for Choice” Event is an Oxymoron – Students for Life of America Protests Chicago Doctors Who Betrayed Their Oath

Jordan Estabrook - 13 May 2024

Abortion supporters nationwide make contradictory statements daily. Usually, it sounds something like this:

Life is valuable – except in the womb.

It’s ok to kill a preborn child up until nine months, but when it’s born, then it can’t be killed.

It’s a baby when they want it to be – otherwise, it’s a “fetus.”

It’s more startling and concerning when trained medical professionals not only accept contradictory statements such as these but go directly against the oaths they vowed to take. The heart of the Hippocratic Oath is to “abstain from all intentional wrong-doing and harm.”

Or, a similar phrase stated by Thomas Inman, says more descriptively, “Practice two things in your dealings with disease: either help or do not harm the patient.”

Some medical personnel threw away their morals, along with dignity for all patients – born and preborn. Illinois’ biggest pro-abortion lobbying group, “Personal PAC,” held a fundraiser in downtown Chicago in Dearborn for “Doctors for Choice.” Students for Life of America (SFLA) mobilized alongside the Pro-Life Action League of Illinois to protest the event and showcase to the community the horror of abortion.

With Illinois being one of the most pro-abortion states in the nation, this pro-abortion PAC needs public disapproval, not more funding. They have already wreaked havoc on life, having funded the Reproductive Health Act, which made abortion legal through nine months, and helped repeal the Parental Notification Act, which allows abortionists to perform abortions on minors without parental consent or notice. Not to mention, women from neighboring states travel through Illinois borders to obtain an abortion. With more funding, this PAC could do even more damage in Illinois.

“Chicagoans deserve to know what is happening in their city and how lives are legally being ended through abortion in their city and state,” stated Shawna Weber, SFLA’s upper Midwest regional coordinator. “Continued funding for abortions in this state is devastating news for everyone. When the abortionists get more money, they use it to end more lives and wreak more havoc on the pro-life movement in the state.”

“As a young pro-life activist, it is essential that we disrupt the corrupt abortion industry that does not care about women but wants to kill children,” says Sarah Carter, a recent graduate and an SFLA alumni at Wheaton College. “Healthcare is supposed to heal, not kill.”

We exposed Chicagoans to the messaging about what was happening inside Dearborn – death and destruction from doctors who are supposed to protect. While we received both positive and negative feedback, overall, we were able to mobilize with other pro-lifers on such a crucial issue for the state.

“Doctors for Choice” is an oxymoron. Women in Chicago, neighboring states, and nationwide deserve doctors who inform and take their oath to protect life seriously.
