GOP will argue that setting the bar for who can be a "doctor" is a matter of states' rights and smaller gubmint.  Supreme Court already putting it on the docket.

Doctor Skeeter Bob will see you now.

When gay rights where the big issue. Our University opened up Same Sex Insurance.

Because one Doctor who was a rather big deal in Microbiology, Research, Geographic medicine and early PCR DNA decoding.
He made it a point to the board that not offering Same Sex benefits caused problems for him to recruit talent from out of state.
I used to put in computers and hook up PCR machines to Macs at his lab...very nice guy and pleasure to work with.

In a few years, you'll only have to be in the military or a military spouse, just like with teachers in Florida.

It's not just about abortions. Some areas are refusing women of "child bearing age" from certain treatments based on how it can affect a pregnancy that doesn't even exist.

MLMers already do that. It will be MLM doctors and faith healers. Get prescribed essential oils for a heart attack.

Sadly, the Evil Rich pushing all of this will be just fine. They'll either jaunt off to a grown-up state, or magically know how to acce$$ a real doctor. And you can bet DeathSantis' own wife won't be getting her breast cancer treated with essential oils from a faith healer in some strip-mall outside Clearwater, either.

The tragic part in all of this is how high the maternal mortality rate is gonna climb because of a lack of trained professionals & the denial of care in these states. The disgusting part is how many white male legislators are gonna shrug their shoulders & say it's God's will.
 
2022-08-07 9:23:14 PM  
Can't blame them and I would encourage them to avoid states with abortion ban laws all together. People had their chance to do the right thing. Time to get in the bed they made.

that's a problem my province is having too.
after treating the medical professionals like thieves and villains, they're finding it hard to retain folks.

I put down roots myself so ti's a pain in the ass to move but I sure look at provinces run by more liberal or at least forward thinking groups with some jealousy.

This stuff is pure propaganda.

Most ob gyn's don't even perform abortions (literally 75% of them don't).  And that was before roe v. Wade was overturned.

After the way doctors have been treated regarding vaccines I'm surprised this hasn't become more of an issue already.

Your entire point of view is based on a lie.

Again, you couldn't even get an abortion at MOST ob gyn's before the Supreme Court decision.

The left operates on lies and fantasy boogeymen.  And then claims it's republicans who are fascist

I really wish ppl who talk the talk of social justice would realize that actual social justice means not abandoning the ppl social justice was meant for just because their oppressors have rigged the system against them. There are millions who cannot move away & are still living under the lash of Jim Crow.

Wrong.   There are very few kids who DONT receive immunizations (about 1% according to a CDC report in 2018).

And most of those are in places like Portland, Oregon.   Not exactly the type place you'd find a bunch of right wing nut jobs

I expect once healthcare becomes a crisis for these states, you will see an effort to try to apportion the supply of medical professionals to each state, much like how Congress is set up now.

In other words, they will try to force doctors and nurses to live and work in their states.

Medical licensure is already done by each individual state.

CMS funds graduate medical education, so that would be a federal lever to pull.

That's nothing new.  Mrs Samurai has been seeking a hysterectomy for 20 years and it took her almost a dozen OBGYNs to find one willing to discuss irreversible options.

Pregnancy just isn't viable with certain types of endometriosis, but some doctors are just farking scared of taking out the plumbing because "you might change your mind."

Insurance companies negotiate the price of healthcare with the providers. This will just cause insurance premiums to skyrocket in those states.
