Canadian Physicians for Life (CPL) is a national association of pro-life physicians, medical students and residents, and retired physicians. CPL was founded in 1975 and is a registered charitable organisation. It promotes healthcare in the Hippocratic tradition that situates the patient’s good at the heart of all medical practice. Dedicated to humanizing healthcare, it advocates for the value of every human life. CPL affirms that the proper goal of medical science and, therefore, of its practitioners is to preserve and protect life across the full breadth of the human experience.
