The Hippocratic Oath Today

2,157 words

Dr. Casey practices medicine in the United States. She was a liberal egalitarian before becoming a white advocate.

The Hippocratic Oath was a remarkable work for its time, but it has since been bastardized and distorted beyond recognition by the anti-whites. All mention of duty, honor, holiness, and the Gods has been replaced with feminist-inspired platitudes such as “warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug,” and “I will remember that I remain a member of society, with special obligations to all my fellow human beings.” That the noble name of Hippocrates is attached to such drivel is a disgrace.

It is not, however, surprising. The anti-whites ruin everything they touch. The original Oath was not only a vow of holiness, it was pro-life and pro-family, two things our victimizers cannot stand. It is these aspects of the original Oath I would like to discuss here.

The original Hippocratic Oath states: “I will neither give a deadly drug to anybody if asked for it, nor will I make a suggestion to this effect. Similarly I will not give to a woman an abortive remedy. In purity and holiness I will guard my life and my art.“

Interestingly, most physicians practicing at the time of Hippocrates did not hold themselves to these standards. In fact, most physicians, as well as the general public, considered euthanasia perfectly acceptable. There was not yet a common belief in an eternity spent in Hell for those who committed suicide. If someone was quite ill and in pain, there was no social shame to prohibit him from putting an end to his own life, often with the assistance of a physician who knew which medicines would be the most effective and cause the least amount of suffering.

Abortion, too, carried no great stigma. Feticide was a shockingly common practice at the time, such that deformed, sickly, or unwanted babies were nearly always left out to die of exposure. Romulus and Remus were suckled by a she-wolf because their mother abandoned them to die. Aristotle said: “As to exposing or rearing the children born, let there be a law that no deformed child shall be reared” [1]. By extension, there was no real social shame attached to killing a fetus in the womb, either.

Many great thinkers from antiquity, including Plato, Aristotle, and Epicurus, all condoned suicide, although most thought we should avoid giving in to bodily pain unless absolutely intolerable. They similarly accepted feticide, as well as abortion in the early stages of pregnancy, as a means of keeping the population healthy and at a desirable level. Philolaus, a Pythagorean, seems to be the only ancient thinker of record other than Hippocrates who was absolutely opposed to such practices. He and Hippocrates believed that suicide and abortion were sins against the Gods, who alone could give and take away life. This philosophy would gradually take hold in the West and become the prevailing attitude for many centuries.

Hippocrates and Philolaus lived in a relatively homogenous society and protecting human life meant protecting the lives of those who were genetically similar to them, and had at least some chance at becoming productive members of a cohesive society when they reached adulthood. Abortion is a trickier subject for white advocates living in a modern, overpopulated, multiracial hellscape.

I first came face-to-face with the realities of abortion in the West as a medical student in a metropolitan area. I did a one-month rotation in the hospital laboratory, and part of the work in that laboratory was to examine aborted fetuses. The day I spent examining them felt like a day spent in one of Dante’s upper levels of hell. The younger babies were killed by dismemberment while still alive. They would arrive ripped apart, with the pieces floating in a container of formaldehyde. The medical students and residents had to take out all the pieces — a hand here, half of a face there — and examine them for obvious abnormalities. There were none. They were healthy babies, just unwanted.

You can buy Greg Johnson’s The White Nationalist Manifesto here

The older babies were not dismembered, but arrived intact. They had been injected with deadly chemicals and the “mother” sent home for a day or two to make sure the baby was good and dead. Later the women would return and labor would be induced. The “mothers” gave birth to their dead babies, who were then put into buckets of formaldehyde and delivered to the laboratory. Those babies were big enough to cradle in your arms. All the ones I saw were normal and healthy. I wept over them. I had no idea such barbarity took place in the United States of America. The anti-white propagandists had told me that the vast majority of abortions happen in the first few weeks of pregnancy when the baby is “just a ball of cells.” They also told me that most later-term abortions were performed for tragedies like major fetal deformities. That is not what I saw. Those dead babies started me on my red-pill journey.

Despite my personal revulsion to abortion, as a white-advocate I seriously considered the possible benefits abortion might have for our people. A number of studies show that abortion may decrease crime rates, although this has been hotly debated. Pro-choicers love this data — of course, they couch it in socioeconomic terms rather than racial ones — and pro-lifers hotly refute the validity of said data. However, the most recent studies from 2019 do suggest a 20% decrease in crime in the United States attributable solely to the legalization of abortion in 1973 [2]. Although not stated in the paper, this is clearly because non-whites have a higher relative abortion rate than whites, and those white women having abortions tend to be of lower socioeconomic status, although that is not invariably true. Twenty percent is not an inconsequential reduction in crime rates, particularly considering how racially skewed crime is, with whites much more often being the victims rather than the perpetrators of violence.

However, until recently, most babies aborted in the West were white, even though non-white women have higher relative abortion rates. In 2015, 36.9% of total abortions were performed on white women, presumably most of them carrying white babies [3]. 36.0% were performed on black women, and 18.5% on Hispanic women. Since 2015, the yearly number of black children aborted has slightly overtaken the number of white children aborted.

The fact that some non-white babies are killed by abortion is simply collateral damage to the anti-whites. Their goal is to decrease white fertility rates, and they have been shockingly successful at doing so. If a few non-white babies get killed along with all those white babies, so be it. Non-white fertility in Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East remains very high. The anti-whites don’t care if a black baby in America is aborted, since the average African woman will have nine babies in her lifetime. The overall trend is still a marked decrease in white births relative to non-white births. All you have to do is import those nine African babies to the West and you get white genocide.

“But what about Margaret Sanger?” the civic nationalists will say. “Wasn’t she a eugenicist intent on wiping out Africans in America?” Yes, I believe she was, but that is irrelevant today. The only race of people on the planet currently being systematically erased is the white race. Right now, we represent about 7% of the world’s population, and that number continues to decline every year.

Physician-assisted suicide is also highly controversial among whites in general, although I think many white advocates are opposed to it because we see where it might lead. If you’re not currently opposed to euthanasia, please read about Noa Pothoven, the Dutch girl who was raped by two men when she was 14. At 17, she was so depressed that she wanted to commit suicide. Although doctors refused to give her deadly drugs because of her young age, they and her parents agreed to let her stop eating and drinking. She died after no one intervened to feed or hydrate her.

Then there is Tine Nys, a 38-year-old Belgium woman who suffered from mild autism and was depressed after a romantic relationship ended. She requested euthanasia and was given a lethal injection. The doctors involved in her death were actually tried for murder, but were acquitted. These are just a few newsworthy cases. I wonder how many more white men and women we’ve never heard of have quietly died in this manner. Certainly hundreds of thousands. In 2015, euthanasia accounted for 4.5 percent of all deaths in the Netherlands, the first country to legalize the practice.

White people are much more likely to consider euthanasia than blacks or Mestizos. A survey revealed that 65 percent of whites would contemplate euthanasia if they suffered from an incurable disease or had debilitating chronic pain [4]. It’s the opposite for non-whites. Over 60 percent of blacks and 55 percent of Hispanics would do everything within their power to save or improve their lives under the same circumstances. Whites already have a much higher suicide rate than non-whites. Legitimizing suicide by involving medical professionals and making it as painless as possible will likely only increase the number of whites choosing to end their lives prematurely.

So how should white advocates view abortion and euthanasia? At the very least, with a heavy dose of skepticism. Ideally, we would view them as Hippocrates viewed them, as an insult to life and to holiness. Our people are precious “from cradle to grave,” as the Catholics say.

Should we then be working to outlaw abortion and euthanasia? Perhaps. Such affronts to holiness will likely be unthinkable in a white ethnostate. In the meantime, however, a more effective tactic than a political fight might be encouraging and supporting young pregnant white women, emotionally as well as financially, so that they may choose life. We can also make sure that our sick and elderly know that their lives have meaning; that they still have wisdom, historical knowledge, and love to share. We can treat all of our white elders like our own grandparents.

Last year, at a store I frequent, the somewhat rough-looking but sweet checkout girl, with whom I had had many conversations, told me that she was pregnant. She and the father had broken up, and she was in a difficult situation. I knew with near-certainty that the father was white, as this young woman had made comments about her own father warning her to only date white men (bless him, what a rarity). I knew that, before falling on hard times, she had had been successful academically and athletically, and had been accepted to college. I knew how hard she had worked to overcome the consequences of some bad choices. I knew she was now stable with a fulltime job. So my enthusiastic response was, “Congratulations, you’re going to be a wonderful mother!” She was shocked. She said I was the first person in her life to react positively to her news. Everyone else had told her to have an abortion. I asked her if she wanted to have an abortion. She said absolutely not. I encouraged her to talk to her parents, with whom she was living, and to contact pregnancy help centers.

Today, that giggling baby boy is the apple of his mother’s eye, and I have never seen her so happy. She and the father were not able to work things out, but he is active in his son’s life. The baby also has stable, married grandparents who help care for him daily. It could be worse, and in the unfortunate state our people are in, I think it’s a lot better than nothing. I am a former liberal and chose not to have children. It’s now too late for me. But when I look at that little boy’s picture, I feel I did what I could to make up for that. I also lived up to the standards of the Hippocratic Oath, not the ridiculous oath I took when graduating from medical school, standing shoulder to shoulder with my multiracial classmates, but the real Oath, the one written by a white man who valued life and holiness above all else. May our people return to that ideal.

    Interesting article, but that “the average African woman will have nine babies in her lifetime” seems to be an exaggeration. According to The World Bank the current fertility rate is 4.7 children per woman in Sub-Saharan Africa and 2.8 in North Africa and the Middle East:
    https://data.worldbank.org/indicator/SP.DYN.TFRT.IN?locations=ZG

    But these rates are still far too high, since many African countries are overpopulated. What white countries can do is to offer them more help with birth control and family planning instead of regular foreign assistance.

      Yes. Only in a few countries the average rate is around 7 at the highest, so 9 for all Africa is definitely an exaggerated. I recommend revising so there’s no need to question other data. Also I do think the “anti-whites” want Africans to reproduce less, but they are perfectly willing to call any white person who says this racist. But I did really like how this article included personal experiences in addition to data and found it to be quite touching.

    Wonderful essay. The impulse to set hard and fast policies about life and death (and their assistance or resistance) strikes me as the result of a way of thinking we need to resist. For White people, some abortions may be desirable (or even necessary), just as some assisted suicides my be desirable (or at least preferable). Ideally, the decisions to effect such options are made with the community in mind and at the community level. I think that most White women who end up having an abortion would prefer their living situation was such that it were not needed. I’ve known women who wanted to get out of a bad situation and an unexpected pregnancy would have derailed doing so. They got an abortion. The regret the loss of a life, but both the mother and the baby could easily have been victims of the situation she was in. She went on to have other children. Compassion towards our people needs to be at the heart of the White Way.

      But so many people would like to adopt white babies. We should at least make them available. If they could be sold, it might incentivize the situation. Eugenic measures would be nice. I’ve selected myself out of the gene pool.

        It is not obvious to me why it would be preferable to subsidize motherhood directly than to create a market for babies. A married White couple who cannot have children is a sad thing, but I’m not sure it’s a state of affairs that demands communal amelioration. I’ve known people who were adopted. They’re haunted by something they cannot correct: The fact that their mother did not wish to keep them for her own. Better to be raised by the State inside an institution dedicated to your welfare and well-being with full knowledge of your being orphaned.

    Interesting essay. Thank you. To add:

    According to this academic source (see below) the ancient Greeks apparently did expose a certain amount of unwanted children (deformed or illegitimate) but it was similar to the modern practice of abortion in that it wasn’t done callously or without regret. In other words, there was a lot of ambiguity concerning killing new born children in ancient Greece. It certainly was not considered salutary.

    Overall, in ancient Greece, compared to the modern human rights culture there was less concern for the individual and more emphasis on what was good for the group. Deformed and unwanted infants could therefore be sacrificed for the common good, not without regrets though:

    “To summarize our results: In the case of deformed new-born infants, Aristotle recommends exposure without giving any indication of any public opinion opposed to this kind of exposure; in the case of excess procreations he personally by implication, apparently, also considered exposure a suitable means of limitation, but as he was conscious of a general or at any rate widely spread public opinion against this kind of exposure, he recommends a limitation of the maximum number of procreations, coupled with early abortion, as substitutes for exposure in communities where the public opinion is so opposed to it.”

    A good expose for one of these websites would be the phenomenon of the historically black medical schools. There are at least three, Meharry, Howard and the one in dc. These are almost all black medical schools, some with large classes, such as meharry, which I think is a class size of around 300. This is in addition to black students’ roughly proportional representation at top 50 medical schools by population percentage(seems news and world report). That’s what “privilege” looks like. Moreover, many blacks seem woefully unqualified by the standard objective metrics, and anecdotally by performance metrics. Yet they get residency and career positions at flag ship institutions. Such a report should be done by someone with real investigative journalist chops, because the process might involve impugning institutions or individuals who could retaliate litigiously. Read the section on the medical licensure examination and black passage rates in farrons Affirmative action hoax to grasp the depth of what’s going on. But from what I know, it’s some sort of feed forward clown show, let me tell you! People are getting more crazy with all that.

    In my experience, primum no nocere has become a cruel lie which doctors tell to patients, each other and themselves. Our medicine is mostly harm, most of the time.

    Interesting. As a white advocate in the medical field, what would you say about Big Pharma?
    I think that the system is at best dysfunctional and at worst malicious and exists to make money and create more unhealthy people.
