    The Hippocratic oath, which may be one of the most outdated things in existence.

    It's also not enforced either. Want proof? Drive by an abortion clinic.

    Everyone in business should, yes.

    I agree. However, that would just leave us with plastic surgeon's taking care of the Housewives of Orange County.

    So would you have a problem with a doctor who refuses to treat women or perhaps African Americans because of his personal discriminatory views?

    That's how medicine is practiced in third world countries.

    No. The shameful one is the doctor.

    I'm sure he knows full well that any patient or potential patient of his will read the sign and likely turn away if they did vote for Pres. Obama, but their vote shouldn't have ANYTHING to do with him providing care to people who seak his care. Granted, he did say he would not turn down any patient who came to his office for treatment, but he has to know some folks will be upset about his sign and turn away not because they think he's a bad doctor but because they think he won't treat them if they voted for Obama. It's as if what he's really saying is, "If you voted for Obama, I don't want you as my patient."

    I know that's not what his sign says, but I wouldn't be surprised if that's how alot of people interpret it.

    Legally, no I would have no problem with it whatsoever. That's his right as a business person, IMO. There's no reason a business person should be forced to provide their services to anyone they don't want to.

    Would I use said doc myself? Nope.
