Yesterday I was trying to keep abreast of the happenings in the world. The article of interest was “Did Big Tobacco Taint a Cancer Study”…long story short, a researcher whose finding were published in the New England Journal of Medicine, was sponsored by a big tobacco company – hence, a conflict of interest. Anyhow, the article was dry and I was beginning to lose interest when my eyes drifted to the quote of the day on TIME.com that got me upset. The quote read;
“Doctors have discriminated against us, turning us away due to their religious beliefs.”
What is my beef? The quote was by Thomas Beatie a married American man who used to be a woman before gender reassignment surgery, on the difficulty of securing care during his PREGNANCY (see picture above)!
I consider myself a very open person but this is way beyond me…thoughts???
