    What you mean, is that you want the part of Hippocratic oath that you agree with, enforced.

    That law will change real soon.

    Thats the constitution not a law. Takes some doing to change that.

    Don't think it will happen? LGBTQ society can pretty much change anything. I give it about 10 years if this becomes a serious issue.

    I'm hoping the vast majority of doctors are NOT like the doctor in the opp, so that this doesn't become a big issue.

    OP's article says otherwise but it doesn't matter since the child was seen and no harm was don.

    Our Constitution gives people the right to be bigots if they want to be.

    Where? The article I read said they were seen by the doctor their doctor asked to fill in for them for that appt, then found a different doctor.

    Public accommodation laws have been held up by the Court as constitutional. And we have a right to call her and those like her out on their bigotry.
