  • Any doctor who agrees with this law is immoral. If you are a doctor in Arkansas and work for a hospital and disagree with this law you should refuse treatment of straight patients using the excuse of being unsure of the patients sexuality. Especially if they are non life threatening money making procedures for your hospital.

I'm sorry but many Christians always want to get on their high horse cz according what they think or believe is right or wrong BUT do the same to them then they want to march & have a hissy fit.

  • Throwing a temper tandrum won't change anything. But if you read into the bill, it doesn't exclude anyone from recieving treatment for medical emergencies. What is does is simply allow providers to refuse to participate in procedures that may be questionable - such as giving children hormone blockers, permitting gender changes to people under a certain age, refusing to committ abortions under particular circumstances, etc. And frankly, you could go to other providers who are willing to go through with those procedures.

That's not a decision based on science. It's just a product of the -religion-, cultural morality she was raised into. It's the same thing. It's just when it's her cultural morality it's automatically justified and objectively correct. When it's other people's cultural morality they need to bend to hers. The hypocrisy is thick.

The issues is whether or not a doctor's personal religious views should be allowed to influence treatment of a patient. The answer is no. The doctor and patient both have the right to freedom of religion and this means they both have the freedom to disagree with each other on religious matters.

On the other hand, Anna does not refer to her own cultural morality as a religion, but it's just as much a "religion" as that of the people whose values she deems a religion.

  • What she says might be true if it weren't for that pesky Constitution thing (that "paper" ruins so many things). Specifically, the First Amendment part of the Constitution. It goes something like this "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof." So, according to this, the law that was passed protects that religious liberty of people that might have a moral dilemma over a medical procedure. The law does not make the procedure illegal, just lets the medical professional opt out if they have a problem with, for instance, performing a gender transition on a child or an abortion. There is a name for making people do something they don't want to do...coercion. Are we really ok with forcing a person to do something, anything, they don't feel is right?

    • There are other words for people refusing to service "those people"... words like "discrimination", "bigotry" and "illegal", to name a few. The 1As protection of religion extends to belief, it does NOT extend to actions. You don't get to do whatever the hell you want and claim yourself above the law, because of "religious freedom". Have you completely missed all civil rights teachings in school? Did you not learn how morally and ethically WRONG it is to deny service to people because you "don't like their kind"??? Did you miss how we had massive social unrest and upheaval because of the legal discrimination that existed, and the numerous laws passed since to stop it? This law is so christians can discriminate against minorities, as they've done since time immemorial.

    • Wow, open racism (or at least as open as it can be while you cower behind the anonymity of a troll account) makes you look so edgy and totally not like a pathetic child desperate for attention he knows he can't earn any other way because he's too small and unremarkable. We're all extremely impressed.

  • So, if you’re gay in Arkansas, you have to lie about who you are to receive the medical care to which you are entitled. Lying to exercise a right. Welcome to America.

  • Where’s the law that allows pacifist doctors to refuse to treat cops, soldiers, and pugilists? Oh, there isn’t one? Politicians are logically inconsistent? Got it.

    Elisa WhitmanElisa Whitman6 ditë më parë
    • Arguably (though it's a bad faith argument), pacifism isn't a religion, so it wouldn't be afforded the same protections as Christian supremacy. Now, if you had a religion that has pacifism as a tenet of its belief structure and that justified the passive violence of denying care to others, it might...oh, who am I kidding? It's all about Christian supremacy, so of course such a law wouldn't protect practitioners of whatever religion I'm talking about.

I don’t drink or do drugs, I have been with my partner since 1990, never have I been arrested. All on my own, not because I fear a wrathful deity.

If it's concerning puberty blockers and/or HRT for minors, that's a completely different thing. Unfortunately, TYT doesn't make a distinction between those two cases.

Mortal man's interpretation of how they choose to believe. Christ didn't discriminate but helped and supported people. Ana, you are so right.

The penis is not separated during the transition... but yeah, that would require you to do some research instead of making bullshit assumptions.
