Freedom of Conscience with Dr. Rod Story


Listen to the Podcast here:

Producer’s Notes:


Dr. Rod Story shares his story of courage, risk, and reward in this show. He offers a solution for anyone who wants freedom from America’s burdened medical system.


Dr. Story was an award-winning physician at a hospital that decided to start offering gender reassignment surgeries. This compelled him to make one of the most difficult decisions of his life. Having the courage to stand up for what you believe isn’t easy, but for Dr. Story, it was worth it.


Dr. Story Talks About:

  • His hospital’s decision to start offering surgeries that would harm patients.

  • The moment of decision when he decided to speak up and make his values known (and the drama that followed).

  • How gender transition surgeries are the exact opposite of “doing no harm.”

  • Why doctors are increasingly looking to change careers in spite of investing 12 years and a small fortune in their education and training.

  • A pro-freedom alternative to America’s dysfunctional medical system: Direct Primary Care - providing sanity for doctors, and a truly remarkable service for patients.

  • How we are less human every time we tell the little voice inside of us to be quiet.

Katie’s Favorite Quotes:


“I don’t think there is anything more important than being able to act according to your conscience.”


“There’s a number of things that are developing in the world of medicine that are very trendy...they’re really trying to turn a lot of what we’ve understood as good care in medicine on its head.”


“I don’t think anyone can imagine that removing healthy tissue – healthy genitals – from someone, to be so blunt, is good care.”
