Allowing doctors to get away with citing religious beliefs, and their supposed superior morality to not do their sworn jobs needs to be stopped. If this keeps on, what next? A Jehovah’s Witness doctor that will refuse to allow transfusions during surgery? Or a Christian Scientist who believes you can pray cancer or heart disease away refusing chemotherapy and medications? Or other fundie religion that only sinful people have children with cerebral palsy (wasn’t took long ago this was the ‘belief’) What about diabetes? Stop giving patients insulin or other BGL lowering medications.
Right now, the Conservative Right Wing Nutjobs are focused on birth control for women, as they still think pregnancy is the punishment women get for having sex. It’s ok for men to have recreational sex, but women? Oh no, can’t have that. The RWNJs are doing their damnedest to drag the world back into screaming barbarism.
To all you suddenly ‘my moral and religious beliefs’ doctors, you need to be reminded of the Hippocratic Oath, which I am quite sure didn’t have a codicil of “unless I can force my beliefs on the patient”
No one is asking YOU to take birth control/contraceptives. And it’s rather hypocritical of you to deny women birth control as it’s against “God’s Will” (excuse me for this interruption, but doesn’t you own holy writings state that claiming to know the mind of your god is a most egregious sin?) then so is impotence, so stop giving men prescriptions for Viagra, Cialis or other erectile dysfunction.
No one is asking for your approval.. we are only asking… no, DEMANDING you do your damned job and keep your nose out of OUR reproductive choices.
