Women are the foundation of society, and the ones who give birth to life; the more women gain morals and values, the more our societies will thrive and prosper, caretaker Minister, Melhem Riachy, said on Friday whilst representing President Michel Aoun during the opening of the Lebanese Obstetrics and Gynecology Association's 22nd International Medical Conference at the Hilton Habtoor Hotel-Habtoor, with the participation of physicians from the US, Europe, Arab states, and Lebanon.
"Medicine itself was found in ancient times to defy death, and Obstetrics and Gynecology were found to emphasize the importance of life; this tool in your hands is to affirm the importance of life day after day, because you're dealing with those who give birth to life... women, Riachy said in a speech he gave marking the occasion.
"There are working women, educated women, women teachers... these women do not only comprise half the society � they are the fertile ground for the birth of this society, Riachy added.
I invite you, gentlemen, to add some moral ointments to women's medical treatments, because they are so lacking nowadays, the Minister concluded.
