Dr Moran in US address
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.
