New Pro-Life Doctor's Directory Available

"One More Soul," a ministry dedicated to spreading the truth about the harms of contraception and the blessings of children, has recently released a directory of physicians who do not prescribe, perform or refer for contraception, sterilization, abortion or in-vitro fertilization. The first edition of the directory was published in June and is now making its way into the various areas of the country. Included in the list are several doctors from Northern Virginia: Dr. John Bruchalski (OB/GYN) who practices in Fairfax (703/273-9440); Dr. Joseph Evers (Pediatrics) who practices in McLean (703/356-5722); Dr. John Kelly (Family Practice) who practices in Manassas (703/257-4335); Dr. William McCarthy (Family Practice) who practices in Woodbridge (703/670-0598); and Dr. Cheryl Ortel (GYN) who practices in Leesburg (703/777-8797). In Maryland, there is one OB/GYN in an active practice, Dr. Gary Smith from Hagerstown (301/714-4112). Dr. Faith D. Daggs, an OB/GYN resident is listed under the District of Columbia. Dr. Ruth Mills Oordt, writing in the directory’s introduction, states that, "We offer this as a resource to women and couples who seeks physicians practicing medicine in accord with the values and ideals promoted by the Roman Catholic Church concerning fertility." These doctors, she says, "promote Natural Family Planning to those patients who desire to space their children." Copies of the directory may be purchased by contacting "One More Soul" in Dayton, Ohio, at 1-800-307-7685 or Copyright ?1997 Arlington Catholic Herald, Inc. All rights reserved.
