    Yes. I dont agree with it, but people who perform services should have the right to refuse them to anyone for any reason. That's what liberty and freedom are about; choices.

    Next thing you will want them to be forced to do is perform abortions even if they are opposed to the killing of children. And soon after that will be requiring them to kill the aged whose grand children want them exterminated so that they get their inheritance early, you know... euthanasia. And then when that envelope has been pushed to its extreme you will require them to participate in eugenics to bring about blue-eyed, blond haired babies and nothing but blue-eyed, blond haired babies.

    Yes, medical professionals should be able to put down their feet when it comes to questions of ethics.

    nooooooo the first vow is do no harm....

    come on.....how far will you go on this slippery slope?

    if the continues...medical schools will stop accepting people who profess this stuff...i hope....

    if you are not willing to be of total help to your patients dont become a doctor....simple as that

    Said medical professionals are protecting all lives presented to them rather than destroying one for the selfish reasons of the other.

    Yes they should. I know a paramedic who swears to god all Libertarians are a danger to the public. So if he comes across them in accidents and stuff, he just chants "Thank you for appreciating my liberty to observe this!" while he watches them die.

    contraception is destruction of live.....she is asking for a contraceptive that prevents the egg from being implanted....are eggs alone life?

    if so how do you feel about the millions of sperm you waste masturbating?

    No one made them become a Doctor or make them take their oath as a doctor.
