I had the craziest doctor appt...OMG!

Recommended Posts

He'd have loved me then lol I have no religion, have an inverted pentagon on my back and ganesh a hindy god on my arse!!!! lmfao

 

I've said it before I respect everyone's own beliefs and their freedom to express them, i may not agree but each to their own, but what I don't agree with is someone forcing their views upon me.

 

I don't go around saying well I think what you believe is shite and explain why this and that happens. So why should someone preach at me and tell me what to do.

 

If he was in the UK he'd have been lynched where I live for that. I mean what would they prefer? teenage pregnancies and lots of unwanted and uncared for kids (if they want to have sex nothing is gonna step them) or BC - I know which i'd pick.

It is neat that you brought this up, Yari - this is a really huge issue right now in Ontario. The CPSO, our provincial regulatory body for physicians, has drafted a policy making exercising religious/moral beliefs while working grounds for misconduct. The policy was drafted because of new changes to our human rights code that will make physicians subject to complaints on the basis of discrimination if they did something like, say, refuse to prescribe BC pills.

 

Just like on here, it is really controversial! But show me something about religion that isn't :)

Wow, that is interesting.

Who knew that this topic would become controversial? It's sort of funny, I just went to the doctor for a normal PAP...LOL.

Good going Yari...way to rile everyone up! wink.gif I actually enjoyed this post. It shows me that in my wedding obsessed mind I can still carry on a dialogue about something other than weddings and all things related!!! I guess I have a few brain cells left after all!!

I addressed the first amendment in my reply only as a reference to the fact that he did not exercise freedom on speech as you mentioned. If anything, he exercised his personal choice and as such it is not related to the freedom of speech. Additionally, personal choice and freedom of speech still make him accountable regardless of your intent, religious or political.

I hope the responses don't set you aback. This issue has obviously touched a nerve on the forum.
Very well said. you don't get to excuse accountability b/c you are a fundamentalist about something.
