This Doctor, who probably took the Hippocratic oath to practice medicine honestly and provide her patients with the best care and for the good of them, has decided that prescribing contraceptives does not fit into the good health-care category. She fits in to that
Personally, I do not believe a doctor should ever be allowed to deny a patient care if they deem it is against their religion. They should rather just not be allowed to practice as we do not need stupid superstition in a field that can lead to life or death situations. What stops a Jehovah's Witness doctor in the same position not allowing a blood transfusion to a patient, it is after all their religious right. Or what about the Scientologist who refuses their patient anti-psychotics and psychiatric treatment as they believe its all a big fraud.
Superstition is dangerous and it needs to be kicked out of medicine and the rest of society. If not we may be heading for a new dark age with idiots like Chantelle Barry leading the way.
Lastly I want to give a shout out to GodlessPoutine of My Secret Atheist Blog who put me onto this story in the first place.
