The CMDA’s Letter to the Uniform Law Commission
The Christian Medical and Dental Association’s Letter to the Uniform Law Commission

Re: Potential revision of the Uniform Determination of Death Act (UDDA)
For decades, the Uniform Determination of Death Act has served as the guiding clinical framework for establishing that an individual has died. In addition to the determination of death by the irreversible cessation of circulatory and respiratory functions, the statute affirms that death can be established by neurologic criteria.
Current guidelines hold that, in the face of a devastating and irreversible brain injury, death by neurologic criteria may be diagnosed when there is loss of all functions of the entire brain, including the brainstem, as manifested by irreversible coma, absent brainstem reflexes, and apnea. Since its inception more than fifty years ago, however, the UDDA has lacked the evidence-based scientific foundations that normally are requisite for clinical guidelines. The American Academy of Neurology (AAN) itself, which has published and promulgated these guidelines, acknowledges severe limitations in the current evidence base.
An Open Letter to The Christian Medical & Dental Association: Organ Transplantation
Dear Dr. Chupp and members of the board of directors at the Christian Medical and Dental Association,
My name is Dr. Heidi Klessig, and I am writing to alert you to the proposed language changes that the Uniform Law Commission (ULC) is currently considering as a revision to the Uniform Determination of Death Act (UDDA). I am an observer to the ULC on this revision, and this is the new language that is going to be considered at their upcoming meeting this summer:
Vaccines and the Church
Some vaccines are developed using aborted fetal cell lines, and some even contain aborted fetal cell line remains. This has been the case since the 1920s, and became widespread in the 1960s, when Leonard Hayflick developed the first widely used aborted fetal cell line from the lungs of a little girl, and used to it grow viruses in her remains for use in vaccines. The Body of Christ simply has not been adequately and accurately informed on this devastating fact.
Pro-life believers have been participating in the abortion industry, most unknowingly. It is time to face that we have been taking part in unfruitful deeds of darkness, to repent, and to come out of sin.
Covid 19: The Real Facts on Disease, Deaths, and Vaccines
Dr. Peter McCullough spoke at the Faith and Medicine Conference on February 3, 2023 in Cumming, GA ( just outside of Atlanta). He presents how virtually all safeguards concerning Covid-19 and the vaccine were intentionally abandoned and lied about during the pandemic and adminstration of the vaccines thereafter.
His talk begins at 36:20 in this video. Please watch it soon… I do not know how much longer it will be posted here: Dr. McCullough on Covid-19 and Its Vaccines
A Rushdoony Quote on Transplantation
“At the same time, medical practice is pursuing this mechanical model with intense zeal. The spare parts idea is cultivated—aborted babies are a source of raw materials, and the dying are cannibalized for spare organs. Both the moral factor and the fact that the body works to reject these alien parts are sidestepped. There are hints here and there that this kind of medical practice is not the wonder-working breakthrough that the press would have us believe. In any case, increasingly, some people feel that they have a “right” to spare parts when they need them. (On one trip, I was told of the pressures put on some heartsick and grieving parents to sign over their child’s body for parts while the child was still fighting for life. One wonders: given the contempt for life shown by some of these medical men, can they be trusted with the life of a perhaps dying child whose “parts” can be used elsewhere?)”

Revisions to the UDDA Considered by the Uniform Law Commission (ULC)
The first change would seek to replace the term irreversible in the standards with the term permanent. “Irreversible” is commonly held to mean “not capable of being reversed.” The term permanent is being offered as meaning that “no attempt will be made to reverse the situation.” Since doctors will not attempt to correct the person’s problem, it becomes “permanent” rather than “irreversible.” Thus, people whose prognosis is thought to result in death will be viewed as dead before they die. The term “permanent” has to do with stopping treatments deemed futile.
