    So much for religious freedom. eh?

    It has absolutely nothing to do with religious freedom. It's about doing ones job.

    Your religion cannot be imposed on another person. Pharmacists and doctors are there to dispense meds and medical care, not to impose their religious restrictions on perfectly legal medical procedures and care. If they don't like it, find another profession more in line with their religious insecurities.

    Today's Hippocratic Oath


    I swear to fulfill, to the best of my ability and judgment, this covenant:

    I will respect the hard-won scientific gains of those physicians in whose steps I walk, and gladly share such knowledge as is mine with those who are to follow.

    I will apply, for the benefit of the sick, all measures [that] are required, avoiding those twin traps of overtreatment and therapeutic nihilism.

    I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon's knife or the chemist's drug.

    I will not be ashamed to say "I know not," nor will I fail to call in my colleagues when the skills of another are needed for a patient's recovery.

    I will respect the privacy of my patients, for their problems are not disclosed to me that the world may know. Most especially must I tread with care in matters of life and death. If it is given me to save a life, all thanks. But it may also be within my power to take a life; this awesome responsibility must be faced with great humbleness and awareness of my own frailty. Above all, I must not play at God.

    I will remember that I do not treat a fever chart, a cancerous growth, but a sick human being, whose illness may affect the person's family and economic stability. My responsibility includes these related problems, if I am to care adequately for the sick.

    I will prevent disease whenever I can, for prevention is preferable to cure.

    I will remember that I remain a member of society, with special obligations to all my fellow human beings, those sound of mind and body as well as the infirm.

    If I do not violate this oath, may I enjoy life and art, respected while I live and remembered with affection thereafter. May I always act so as to preserve the finest traditions of my calling and may I long experience the joy of healing those who seek my help.

    I am really pleased- although not surprised- that Obama is following through with his promise to rescind this piece of garbage.

    Oops. Shame when those little details get in the way of a perfectly good rant.

    Why are you having this dialog with yourself when you've done nothing to prove what you're saying? Did you know that Medicare denies more claims on average than the insurance industries? Did you know that an increasing number of physicians are refusing to take Medicare because of low payments and onerous paperwork? Your opinion does not reflect reality.

    Funny thing is, it's been that way since 1966. It's not like it was breaking news or anything. LOL

    Do you oppose soldiers declaring a contiencious objector status in the United States military? Killing the enemy is a soldier's job. Yes?

    Depends on what job they signed on for. I would fully expect a chaplain to object while someone who signed on as infantry, I would see court martialed for refusing to perform that duty.
