I think it is wrong to force them to do that, perhaps I am in the minority on this but a doctor should be allowed to choose who their patients are.
You're right. And I don't miss Sweet Polly Purebred one bit since she left Fox, do you?
This is confusing. Who the heck is "Crosby"? What does this have to do with Rita Cosby?
"This is confusing. Who the heck is "Crosby"? What does this have to do with Rita Cosby?"
Thought the same thing on first pass.
As I have said, why cannot a doctor choose to not care for a patient.
If a patient abuses drugs, doctor shops, the doctor can say adios. If a doctor feels they cannot perform surgery and the patient insists, they go for another opinion.
If a doctor feels that insemination of a lesbian is not something he/she feels comfortable doing than I say bravo. Just like the pharmacists who disagree with providing birth control pills.
If this is their choice than the consequence may be of word of mouth and they lose their business. Doctors are to do know harm. But, these are private folks and should be able to say yay or nay.
I want to run an ad on MSNBC that says you screwed up big when you gave your interpretation of the Supreme Court decision in 2000 about the Florida ballots. MSNBC will not run that ad. If they will deny me the free speech I am entitled to then they need to not be a broadcaster.
I used to like you, but your arguement here is the lamest I have ever seen. It sounds as tho' you took the contrary position just to have someone take the contrary position.
In a million - no, make that a billion - years, that's a term I never would have used to describe the breathless one.
Is that Tucker Carlson? That twerp makes me twinge whenever I see him. The damage that he does to conservatism is just appaling. Richard Mellon Scaife should pay him to get him off of the air.
If a doctor can be forced to artificially inseminate a patient, can he then be forced to do abortions? Very scary situations can evolve from this.
Please read the second part of the interview. Rita Cosby use to do the Big Story on FOX, on the weekends.
Her pro. attitude went south for me when she sucked up to the ma and pa Jackson.
She is now with MSNBC. Good riddance.
Just a clarification there is a show on MSNBC, called the Situation. Cosby was a guest, promoting her new show, and one of the topics and doctor who refused to inseminate a lesbian, and she is now miffed.
Cosby seems to think a doctor cannot refuse care and further thinks the doctor should leave the profession.
She also called herself a middle of the road kind of gal. She thinks MJ was not guilty, give her the hook, she is now MSNBCs problem.
1 All discussion shows involving reporters sitting around pretending to talk to one another are unwatchable and unwatched.
2 The media's downfall can be traced to when they started interviwing each other rather than going out and actually covering the news and real people who do things.
I'm surprised that doctors treat patients who do not have a "release of liability" statement signed.
Yes it does, it is am important subject and Cosby's remarks just pushed me over the edge.
There is no way a doctor should have to do something they feel morally is incorrect. If you do not like him, than let folks know. He is a private provider, who needs this headache.
Jesus said: "And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore, they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder." -from THE BIBLE: Matthew 19:4-6
Didn't really read the post but I hated Crosby on Fox, glad she's gone.
Also, for Rita Cosby, good riddance, and don't let the door hit you in the ever expanding butt on your way out the door.
This is but a little preview of what would happen if, God forbid, HillaryCare ever comes to America.
I also think I'd refuse to inseminate on the basis of the legal difficulties it could cause me opening me up to lawsuit.
I tend to agree. This wasn't an emergency situation where the doctor refused to treat her because she was a lesbian.
This was a purely elective procedure and I think the doctor has every right to refuse to perform such procedure. She's free to go to another doctor.
