Who we are

Doctors for Life International is a non-profit company that was established in South Africa in 1991. Members include medical practitioners, dentists, and veterinarians worldwide. It is a platform through which medical professionals form a united front to uphold three core principles:

  • Sound science in the medical profession
  • Protection of the sanctity of life from fertilisation until natural death
  • Judeo-Christian ethics within the medical profession

This is achieved by various means including court actions, webinars, participation in news broadcasting and the development of programs such as Aid to Africa, LifeChild, and the 11th Hour Abortion Helpline.
