New Rule Protects Health-Care Workers' 'Right of Conscience'

And thank god, because, as a doctor, I have a moral issue with treating African-Americans for sickle cell anemia. Now I no longer have to treat this disease which is so clearly God's punishment for being black.

Dear doctors who don't want to have to practice medicine "in direct opposition to their personal convictions"... Tough shit. Don't be a doctor. Refusing to perform procedures is not a fucking free-speech issue. WITHHOLDING MEDICAL INFORMATION is not a free-speech issue. Perform the job you AGREED TO PERFORM and then go out and protest abortion to your heart's content. Pharmacists: fill the birth control prescription that is fucking LEGAL and then voice your support of the Vatican's stance wherever you please. YOU took the goddamn job and you knew what it entailed. The medical profession is ABSOLUTELY different from all other professions and you do not get to pick and choose which aspects of it are palatable to you.
