The attached 1991 Inaugural Address by Dr John J. Ring, M.D. as President of the American Medical Association, includes the following statement:

“We can accept nothing that threatens this relationship by trying to turn medicine into a mere trade, a dispassionate business venture, an impersonal public utility.  We can accept nothing that threatens this relationship by maneuvering us to work for anyone other than our patients.  We can accept nothing that threatens this relationship by trying to make us agents of any effort that would violate our duty “to do no harm” — by asking us to ration needed care, to assist in suicide, or to kill people — even in state-sanctioned executions.”
