  •  Screw the Hippocratic Oath! Let Doctors Lie! (2+ / 0-)

    This regulation allows doctors and other health care workers to LIE to their patients. It breaks the fundamental oath of working in health care, "First do no harm." By denying patients the appropriate information, you are doing harm. You are lying. You are causing physical, emotional and mental anguish.

    I think the exact opposite law should be enacted. No, not that doctors be required to perform abortions, but that doctors and other health care workers be required to give correct and appropriate information if they choose not to perform those services. I can't get the information here, tell me where I can.

    Anyone giving out faulty or misleading information should lose their medical license. They should not be in the business of health care.
