I recently read the comments that Joan Chand’oiseau made in response to the sign in Dr. Chantal Barry’s clinic that read: “Please be informed that the physician on duty today will not prescribe the birth control pill,” in this article.
Then I read some of the comments at the bottom of the page. Then I wrote this comment:
What is so concerning is the absolutism with which the likes of Joan Chand’oiseau approach the issue. “Dr. Barry’s religion has no place in my health or my reproductive health, period.”
In other words, only Joan Chand’oiseau’s religion of “reproductive rights” should be permitted, and not only permitted, but enforced by the state. And doctors who disagree with Ms. Chand’oiseau’s view of the world should be made to act against their consciences. Doctors should simply be unthinking dispensaries serving the demands of a public who, in Ms. Chand’oiseau’s eyes, could only have her worldview – none other could be possible.
And, there should be no doctors for those Canadians who align themselves with Dr. Chantal Barry’s belief that the BCP is both poor medicine and morally unacceptable.
And then I thought to myself, it’s a scary, scary world.by
