    I'm not sure if I'm the only one who thinks this but, if you become a doctor you are under oath to help your patients even if they have a life style you dont agree with...

    I'm a doctor, I don't believe in oath & I regret that I took the oath...
    I believe more in responsibility...an oath can makes us force to do what we don't want...but responsibility will not!

    & coming to that bill, A doctor is known commonly as 'The healer' If a doctor doesn't heal the patients whom he/she don't want to just because of some crazy reason ,then he/she is a doctor only for name sake!

    Religion says to help the others..
    If a doctor doesn't treat patients because of religious reasons, then he/she is neither religious nor a doctor!

    And the Bill is morally unacceptable and stupid.

    There are couple of things that bugger me about this article. Mind you this is only my opinion. First: I was under the impression that people studied and practiced health care to care for people. The money, benefits, societal status and personal beliefs by definition must become secondary to caring for others. Second: Republicans or Religion; it makes no difference. Both are examples of our modern society being encouraged to scream me, me, me. It's all about tolerating me! We do not need more labels divisions and groups. Nor do we need more laws to validate labels, divisions and groups. It seems in some cases these folks never emotionally matured past third grade. I don't have to validate and tolerate anyone or anything. I choose instead, to care.

    The fundies have a hold of this state from gerrymandering. We go blue for the president/nationally, but republicans just control everything else state related and continue to fuck it up.

    Needless to say, I am not surprised about the bill.

    Anyone who thinks their clinical decisions might be influenced by their religious beliefs has no business becoming a doctor in the first place.

    Lovely, so much for it being all about the economy and fiscal restraint.

    How much gov't time (and as a result, money) has been wasted on this so far?

    ....and here's the kicker; this kind of freedom of religion allows muslims to refuse to treat christians who can refuse to treat satanists who can refuse to treat both christians and muslims and the beat goes on.....and the beat goes on.

    Somewhere along the line they forgot freedom of religions pertains to all not a select one. icon_wink.gif

    The Gov. of Kentucky just vetoed a 'religious freedom' bill (love this '1984' doublespeak) that opens the floodgate to deny more than medical care....but living space, goods and services, (etc) to people who offend ones 'religious convictions.

    The canard was a case where Amish farmers were required to use fluorescent orange triangles to warn motorists. The Catholic Church is on-board as a means to spread Health Directives and the fundies love it because it circumvents LGBT Fairness laws on the books in KY's largest population centers. The Assembly will be in a few days to try and override his veto.

    There is nothing spiritual about this kind of stuff.

    Great, so all the muslims can evict the christians who can evict the pagans who can evict the jews who can evict the satanists...icon_lol.gif

    Agree x1000. Any doctor who would reject a patient or alter treatment in a negative way based on something like "religious conviction" should lose their license. Probably should be shunned by other physicians too...
