Dr. gay changer

According to a Daytona Beach News-Journal article, via Pam, a woman walked into a doctor's office, was checked out by a physician's asst. as her regular doctor wasn't around, and left with "literature condemning homosexuality as 'sinful and sexually impure.'"

Her sexuality was in her file but if the physician's assistant used that information to push her personal non-medical agenda then I've got to agree with Pam when she writes: "Some licenses need to be revoked in this case. There's nothing else to it."

When she opened up an envelope Pope-Wright left at the checkout counter, she was shocked to find photocopied pages including Bible verses that denounced homosexuality and asserted God can help her change. "The information that Ms. Pope-Wright gave to Ms. Beiler was derogatory and offensive, and completely disrespected her right to dignity and privacy," the complaint says.

It's also important to point out that another doctor "deflected Beiler's concerns when she complained to the office."

In other news of the intersection of medical/pharmaceutical incompetence and American talibanism, three women are suing Wal-Mart for refusing to stock the morning after pill in their pharmacies.

(Special thanks to this CNN article for drinking at the right wing framing trough and calling the women's backers "pro-abortion rights groups"-- fools. The Washington Post version of the same AP report calls them "abortion rights groups."). (Pam's House Blend)
