The Patrick Madrid Show: February 27, 2024 – Hour 2

Patrick dives deep into the ethical crossroads of medical decisions and religious beliefs. He explores the weighty implications of a doctor respecting a Jehovah’s Witness patient’s refusal of a lifesaving blood transfusion. Patrick also tackles the complexities of voting ethics; how our responsibilities as Catholics shape our choices in the political arena, specifically when candidates support practices like IVF and abortion. Plus, don’t miss his enlightening discussion on the significance of attending the upcoming National Eucharistic Congress for spiritual growth.

  • James – Did Mary sin after Jesus was born? (00:45)
  • Mark – Is it morally okay for Catholics to support Donald Trump with his stance on IVF? (06:01)
  • Gina – I am a doctor and I had a Jehovah Witness patient and she said she didn’t want to receive donated blood (even if it was necessary to save her life). Am I sinning if I honor her wishes and she dies?
  • Patrick shares and responds to a couple of emails about presidential candidates and their stances on IVF
  • Marie – What is the “Armor of God”? (28:18)
  • Preston Allex, Relevant Radio’s CFO, joins Patrick to share exciting news about the upcoming National Eucharistic Congress (35:58)
  • Mike – I work in the OR and I disagree with what you are talking regarding patient autonomy. So I think you should not infuse blood if it’s unwanted.
