    Why does this thread keep going off the rails with hypotheticals?

    No, not in every state. I dont know about Michigan.

    However it is clear from the OP, the doctor and the legal case, that it's based on *her stated* religious beliefs. Now...why are you going off on a tangent?

    Is it your opinion she did it based on bigotry towards gays?

    A HUMAN doctor. And this is yet another advantage to working in a medical GROUP. If you don't like the doctor, or the doctor doesn't like you, there are more doctors in the group. And again, what ****ed up parents want their child's doctor to be someone who objects to their lifestyle?

    I notice you're still ignoring the clear implication here.
    That would be consistent with her ignoring that this is about discrimination and segregation, and not about someone having to see another doctor

    All the bitching and moaning going on in this thread are based on the premise that people are owed someones labor or the falsehood that people serve the public. Saying that people are not owed the labor of others and no one serves the public is relevant to the nonsense reasoning people are giving.

    Who says they would have to die to cause hardships for the person, their loved ones? What if their causing a delay in the refusal to see the patient leads to complications? What if that delay leads to requiring more extensive stay in a hospital, more bills? What if it causes people to not get the early diagnosis that would improve their chances?

    Even with just these checkups, refusal of service could lead to someone having to either a) drive far out of their way to see a doctor that will take them as a patient only due to something like their sexuality or their parents' sexuality, or b) go outside their insurance network for a doctor that will see them, accept them, not due to the doctor having too many clients or not specializing in what they need, but rather only out of bigotry. Why shouldn't someone be compensated for discrimination that causes them measurable hardship?

    What are you talking about? This is, if you did not know a public bulletin board. Oh wait you know that because you say so ion your next sentence. As such I am not posting to you, but commenting on post made by you. Perhaps you should learn the difference.

    I don't know where this "like or dislike" you came from.
    I have no idea what you are talking about.

    This is a message board. I'm not posting to like or dislike people.
    Nobody said you were. You are posting about a topic and it is a clear indication that you condone the bigotry that is the topic of this thread. You just lack the integrity to acknowledge it.

    But feel free to post one more emotional post.
    You are confused or just diverting, but hardly a surprise.

    I'm not going to read it.
    I do not give a crap about what you read.

    I'm posting about the subject of this thread, which is a baby being seen by a doctor's partner because the doctor didn't want to work with the baby's gay parents. Happy Friday.
    No the thread is about bigotry of a doctor who refused to see a 6 day old infant. Your posts indicate that such bigotry is acceptable to you. Happy Friday to you too and a great week end too.

    His was a ridiculous objection. Circumcision does no harm. It may be painful but many procedures doctors perform are painful. Doesnt make the wrong or unethical, lol. Yeah, that injection was totally unethical! Give it to me on a spoon instead! lol. Oh, dont pierce my ears! It's unethical!
