  •  Unconstitutional laws (none)
    If laws are not applied equally courts generally find them unconstitutional. As in your examples of nitrous and documenting vitals, I.E. to apply them to abortion and not oral surgery or trauma. Litigation could chip away at some of these dastardly regulations. Or at least involve the rest of the medical community. If the rest of the profession was held to the same standard they would scream thier heads off and you may find an ally.
    •  How touching that you trust the courts (4.00)
      Since the conservatives have corrupted the courts just as they've corrupted every other aspect of society they've touched, I don't think we can rely on courts to uphold the Constitution or administer justice.  There are always threadbare rationales judges use to cloak their prejudices in a veneer of "legal" respectability.  This happens from the lowliest county court to the USSC.  

      It would be nice if we could still rely on the courts to throw out these punitive, discriminatory regulations, but in a country that enforced Dred Scott and Plessy, it's not to be counted on.

      You can never be too rich, too thin, or too cynical.

      •  I'm not suggesting you rely... (none)
        entirely on the court. What I suggested is that you involve the rest of your profession in your endeavor AS WELL. If you can not receive the support of your own professional community......
         I'm also sorry you so distrust the courts. The same courts that have ruled recently on legal issues such as gay marriage and juvenile execution, in favor of the LEFT I might add. You may have no other choice in the long run other than to turn to the courts. What the right will accomplish in deconstruction in the next 3 1/2 years will be nothing short of astounding. Our only hope may lie in the court.
         I'm not trying to slam you as you did me in your reply. I'm only offering you my support and constructive thought. It's easy to get 4's slapping someone around.
