Dr Mo­ran in US ad­dress

Novem­ber 1950

Drogheda Independent - - NEWS -

IN New York at the World Med­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion, Dr. Pa­trick Mo­ran, the Ir­ish Med­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive, was one of the more vo­cal vot­ers against the prac­tice of eu­thana­sia. Dr. Mo­rah’s views are well known and re­spected since his hav­ing the “le­galised abor­tion” clause re­moved from the As­so­ci­a­tion’s prin­ci­ples.

Grey-haired, fifty-ish and un­af­fected in dress and dic­tion, Dr. Mo­ran has been likened to the late Will Rogers on the grounds of phys­i­cal re­sem­blance as well as for his com­mand of phi­los­o­phy of the “home­spun “va­ri­ety.

In pro­fes­sional life he is the med­i­cal su­per­in­ten­dent of the Ardee Men­tal Hos­pi­tal where he or­gan­ised a highly ef­fi­cient model farm for the ben­e­fit of the pa­tients and he has con­trib­uted much to­wards the en­cour­age­ment of model farm­ing through the Young Farm­ers move­ment. His pub­lished pa­pers are about equally di­vided be­tween med­i­cal ethics and agri­cul­ture which, ap­par­ently, is by no means a bad com­bi­na­tion.
