Catholic medical ethics resources?


I’m going into my senior year of undergrad starting tomorrow. My goal is to eventually go onto PA school in the future a few years from now. Can anyone point me to good websites that will answer my questions regarding my responsibility as a health care professional to live out our faith in the world of medicine? I’m talking about how to react when challenged with issues like abortion, giving out contraceptives, physician-assisted suicide, IVF, etc. Any good resources?


I think you’ll need to look at the various clinics and hospitals where you may be working. What are their requirements? What do they allow already? You’ll have to follow their decisions regarding everything you’ve mentioned. Any objections you have will not matter once you’re employed in a particular place.

Hope this helps,
