I'd really love to hear the actual quote, rather than this paraphrase. I'm guessing it sounds much worse.

I imagine it's bad but if he has a really cute Crocodile Dundee accent while saying it I'd probably cut him a little slack.

Foreigners who talk American like real people only with cute little accents are just so gosh darned adorable cause they think their people just like real Americans.

I don't prescribe antibiotics or pain medications for my Catholic patients.  It goes against my religious beliefs.

Nutjob doctors like this should either have their licenses revoked or be forced to put a large "WARNING: I AM A NUTJOB" on their ads and clinic door.

If this asshat was my doctor, even though I'm not a teenage girl (well, if I'm not in certain chat rooms, but we won't discuss that here), I'd probably switch to another doctor.  He obviously puts his own religious dogma over the best interests of his patients.

Teen pregnancy might be a girl's "destiny", he said, and it was certainly not as bad as same- sex marriage.
The only circumstances in which he would prescribe the contraceptive pill would be if a woman wanted space between pregnancies, or had at least four children. "I think they've already done their reproductive job".


What. An. Asshole. Also, what does he think will happen in the next 100 years if every woman had, at minimum, four children?

This man passed medschool?

You don't have to be a nutjob to impose your hare brained religious beliefs onto other people, but it sure helps.

FTFA: Lee also does not prescribe condoms, and encourages patients as young as 16 to use the rhythm method.

Yo, Kiwis, do people in New Zealand actually have to have a prescription to get condoms? They aren't OTC?

Somacandra: Yo, Kiwis, do people in New Zealand actually have to have a prescription to get condoms? They aren't OTC?


Not a Kiwi, but...  They are subsidized by the public healthcare system if prescribed, therefore much cheaper (free?).  They can be purchased OTC at regular price.

And here I am spending the past three months studying for my MCAT and busting my ass to keep a 4.0 GPA so I have a shot at getting into med school.

Apparently, I just have to go to NZ and they'll let any idiot in.

teen pregnancy as a girl's "destiny"?

other issues aside, this Doctor has a bigger God complex than "Greg House"

i'd bet cash money that this man has some serious issues with his sexualty

He should be in another specialty, I'm thinking one that's well away from the patients.

If you'll RTFA, I believe you'll find the quote is complete. Much like the doctor's cluelessness.

I hope he believes in high infant mortality too because else how are we to balance that all out as god intended to.

How about the patients be responsible? Is that too much to ask?

It should be fully legal to fire a doctor for refusing to give out birth control.

Any other job if somebody refused to do their job they would be fired on the spot,  Why should doctors be protected?

If it's his own private practice, and the contraception is not for a medical condition which endangers the health and life of a patient, then it's his right as a provider to not prescribe the medication, and to refer that person to another physician in the event they still want it. And there are plenty of ways he can document it to seem rational to the non-religious folks who examine the chart later on for a lawsuit.

Not saying he's right by any means, but you cannot force a doctor to write a prescription for something.

Why should the patients have to be held responsible for advice given to them by a quack? Why can't he just do the bare minimum required of him by his chosen career?

Riche: Nutjob doctors like this should either have their licenses revoked or be forced to put a large "WARNING: I AM A NUTJOB" on their ads and clinic door.


Seriously? This is the most kosher thing that quacks can do. There are people who make a living on chemically castrating autistic children and giving them chelating agents that they don't need. There are Doctors out there who are telling people that vaccines will kill them, and that diet will cure cancer.

THIS is the thing that people should lose their license for? An elective medication that a doctor is under no obligation to prescribe outside of a medical condition that warrants it?

He should lose his patients to another doctor. Taking his livelyhood for something he has every right not to do? You really want to go down that slippery slope?

right - because going to your doctor and asking for birth control BEFORE you get pregnant is irresponsible.

parasol: right - because going to your doctor and asking for birth control BEFORE you get pregnant is irresponsible.


Uh, when the doctor refuses to prescribe you birth control in the TFA, and recommends a method which is infamous for being worthless and pushes it as expert opinion, it's kind of hard for medically ignorant people to be "responsible" when in their minds, they are.

THIS.

If a firefighter said, "I won't extinguish this fire because the people who live here are not Christians" he would be terminated. If a store clerk refused to sell someone a cookie because the clerk believes the customer is "too fat", they'd be shiatcanned that day.

But somehow, doctors and pharmacists get away with this religious proselytizing via their jobs all the time, and many teachers get away with refusing to teach hard science because they don't believe in evolution or what-have-you.

Jeez... What would happen if a doctor said he couldn't prescribe painkillers because they go against his teachings as a Satanist?

Apparent it is to much to ask from religious nutballs, since her trying to be responsible was what he had a problem with.

You're comparing a doctor in private practice who is being asked to prescribe an elective medication to refusing to prescribe a life-saving prescription for a medical condition which warrants it. That's the main flaw in your argument.

Regardless of his religious derpitude, it's his right as a provider not to write a prescription for an elective medication, his only duty is to refer the patient to another doctor if they still insist on it.
