Can Your Doctor Refuse to Treat You on Moral Grounds?

By  | 

This is a topic I read about in a recent issue of one of my many magazines, and I can't find the one: doctors refusing to prescribe birth control and other treatments because it conflicts with their religious beliefs.For religious reasons, I as a patient refuse certain treatments, but I was shocked to learn that doctors can say that they won't treat me because of a religious objection. The religious side of me understands where they're coming from, but the patient side of me doesn't give a rat's patootie. If you sign up to provide medical care, you have to do it. At least, that's what I think.Check out this video from CNN Health. What do you think?
