Doctor Issues Call To Stop `Murderous Obamacare'
by Marcia Merry Baker

Oct. 28—On Oct. 24, Dr. Mark Shelley, a general practitioner, held a press conference at his office in rural northern Pennsylvania, to issue a call, ``Doctors Against Murderous Obamacare.'' He identified Obamacare as the culmination of a decades-long process of degradation of the U.S. medical system, which has worsened as the economy declined. A ``dictatorship of money'' has arisen, serving Wall Street, not the good of the population. Doctors have been forced to ``adjust'' to the money system, to the point of violating their Hippocratic Oath.
When asked by a local reporter, ``Why do this now?'' Dr. Shelley said, ``Because I can't be everywhere'' at the same time, to ``see that my patients don't die.'' He gave examples from cases in his own practice of what he meant by this: It is now common experience for a sick individual to be judged by the system (at an emergency room, a nursing home, a hospital, clinic, or elsewhere) as not ``worthy'' of treatment—too old, already chronically ill, impaired, a coerced and generalized DNR (do not resuscitate order), and so on. Shelley has found himself repeatedly forced to intervene.
Dr. Shelley likened today's situation, to what was warned about by Dr. Leo Alexander, the American physician who was chief consultant to the Nuremberg Tribunal on Crimes Against Humanity. Shelley quoted from an article by Alexander (``Medical Science Under Dictatorship,'' 1949) to underscore his own warning about medical practice and Obamacare today.

  • Doctor Issues Call To Stop 'Murderous Obamacare'
    Dr. Mark Shelley, a family physician from rural Pennsylvania, held a press conference Oct. 24, in which he identified Obamacare as the culmination of a decades-long process of degradation of the U.S. medical system, which has worsened as the economy declined. A 'dictatorship of money' has arisen, he said, serving Wall Street, as the general welfare has been abandoned. Dr. Shelley offers poignant examples of how the 'for profit' healthcare system is forcing doctors to violate their Hippocratic Oath, and preventing them from carrying out their commitment to saving and improving the lives of their patients.





  • The Search for a Mislaid Truth
    by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

    A deeper examination of the folly of sense-perception, which began with the author's 'Nicholas of Cusa, Kepler & Shakespeare,' in EIR, June 21, 2013. Contrary to the foolish believers in mere sense-perception, LaRouche writes, 'The distinction of the human being from all other, presently known types of living creatures, lies, intrinsically, in the behavior representing a potential for effecting willfully selfdirected categories of, specifically, ontologically upward changes in the expressed, intrinsically willful characteristics of the human species per se.'
