14. +1000! What next? They don't believe in helping Mormons, the uncircumcised or gay patients?

Oh, wait... better yet, how about those who they consider to be the devil-spawn...? Patients who practice Islam...! That's a more obvious target for these bigots and they'll take it in a second. Perhaps they should be able to also withhold services from people who have sex out of wedlock, or atheists - afterall, that would be supporting the enemy of their beliefs, no? What about a member of a gang or someone who has been convicted of murder?

THEY aren't being asked to perform an abortion but general services to patients. Frankly, it is none of their business to judge why a patient is there. If they have a problem with any medical practices legal in this country, then they should leave the practice. I'm sure they'll be welcomed elsewhere with open arms...

...not so much...
