It's increasingly becoming a concern because there are lawsuits surrounding business and individuals being punished for exercising their beliefs in their lives as individuals that provide a service. Some people believe that an individual has the personal right and freedom to refuse services that conflict with their beliefs and that the law should protect that.

2.) if you believe in rights and the constitution we will
4.) false i dont think that at all the line is when rights are infringed, it already exists, this wants to put the patient out and give them all to the doctor
can doctors already not do abortions if they dont want to? YEP this law isnt needed because now the Doctor will be able to flat out discriminate. Muslim doctor can refuse to treat me for any reason cause im a Christian. News flash then dont be a doctor.
Im a Christian and i would have to be mentally retarded to think i could be a doctor in a public setting and refuse to work on anybody who isn't a christian. Im simply not that stupid because i understand how laws and rights work and i respect them not only for me but my fellow Americans
5.) good thin my view point does NOTHING like tha as already proven. Maybe you should ask me my view point instead of falsely assuming.
6.)its is discrimaintion that is was magically bred over gays, it will fail just like when it was brought up against women and minorities etc etc
7.) thier ethics dont matter for it infringes on others, especially life. If they dont like it dont be a doctor or be a private practice. The rules apply to us ALL.
8.) it will do more than that and they are already free not to do those things you are mention so why make this new law? because the nutters want to expand it and infringe on others.
9) the doctor could always not be a doctor or do public services, thats the simple solution
2.) it would depend on WHY they are refusing the sign. They can not refuse because its Christian so its that simple. You can discriminate against a religious group but you cant discriminant against them BECAUSE they are a religions group. This isnt rocket science.
3.) like i said complete biased, the lawsuits are because people choose to be criminals and break the laws and rules that apply to us all
4.) im one of those people but they cant do it illegal and break the law and violate the rights of others, HUGE difference.
5.) they, you, me, we already do have the same protections
Unfortunately, this is but a preview of the kind of culture war garbage we can look forward to in the House and Senate come 2015. The social conservatives always put culture wars before fiscal conservatism.

So... just read the law as cited earlier in this thread. http://www.legislature.mi.gov/docume...-HEBH-5958.pdf
Nowhere does it mention any medical profession, any specifics about much of anything. It simply states that the government will not interfere with the practice of a religion. So everything that has been said about the effects on LGBT's, minorities, etc. is all created to bias people against the law.
In essence, the very existence of a law to protect the right to practice a religion appears to offend those who claim to respect the constitution, which says the exact same thing on a federal level.
This is the only thing the law really establishes: "(b) Laws neutral toward religion may burden religious exercise
as surely as laws intended to interfere with religious exercise. " In other words, a law that forces all people to act in a certain way may infringe upon religious beliefs, and may not be admissible.
