Doctors oaths and personal religion.
Catholic hospitals are protesting "freedom of religion" in regards to refusing to hand out birth control. Now where the fuck is their free speech violated. The law as far as I know says if you ask for public funding then you cannot discriminate if you want that money. Now if these are private hospitals, they can cut ties with the government and discriminate. No one is shutting them down.
BUT regardless, even in a private hospital without public funding, I think any doctor that cant follow their oath should not be a fucking doctor. It isnt about you, the doctor, it is about the patient. I don't want any doctor who cannot separate their personal beliefs from my care. My care comes first as a patient, not your politics or your religion.
Would these idiots like it if an atheist doctor refused to give care to a believer merely because they didn't like the fact that the patient believed.
THIS IS NOT ABOUT your right to believe what you want. This is about if you ask government for money, AND NO ONE IS FORCING YOU TO DO THAT, then when you accept money from the government, you have to obey the same laws anyone else would.
Dont ask for the money if you don't want to, but that is not a violation of your freedom of religion.
