Hippocratic Oath-Framed Gold

The text reads:

A Pledge to My Patients
The Hippocratic Oath

I will guard the sanctity of life and my role as healer.
I will use treatment to help the sick according to my ability and judgment, but I will never use it to injure or wrong them.
I will not help a patient commit suicide, even though asked to do so, nor will I suggest such a plan.
Similarly, I will not perform abortions. But in purity and in holiness, I will guard the sanctity of life and my role as healer.
Whenever I enter a home, I will do so to help the sick, keeping myself free from all intentional wrongdoing and harm, especially from sexual involvement.
Whatever I see or hear in the course of practice, I will keep private and confidential, not divulging any information but considering such things to be holy secrets between the patient and myself.

Hippocrates was a 400 BC physician in Greece who objected to the medical culture of his day, in which abortion and euthanasia were commonplace. Resolving to purify the practice of medicine, he wrote this oath which affirms the sacredness of life and the doctor’s duty to protect it.
