This is what he gets for going against God's will

It is nice to know that a little bit of teh 1980s is with us still. :)

ELIZABETH, N.J. (CN) - A gay HIV-positive man says in court that a hospital denied him treatment and visitors, as the doctor remarked, "This is what he gets for going against God's will."

Joao Simoes sued Trinitas Regional Medical Center in Union County Superior Court. He says that the hospital admitted him in August 2011, but that "requests for his lifesaving medication were not honored," and his sister was denied visitation rights.

Susan V. Borga, M.D., from the Department of Behavioral Health and Psychiatry, allegedly approached Simoes while he was confined to the hospital's mental health wing. Borga is not named as a defendant.

If these allegations are true, this doc should lose her license.  My best friend had his VA psychiatrist tell him being gay was unnatural and he just needed to get a girlfriend.  A psychiatrist!   I can only imagine the damage saying that to someone struggling with their sexuality.  He finally reported her and got moved to another.  In the VA's investigation, she lied and said he must have misunderstood her, due to her Indian accent.  We think of doctors being more educated than the average Joe or at least able to separate their personal views from their oath, but not always the case.

every time one of these republican-led state legislatures tries to pass a health care law giving health care givers the right to not treat if it goes against their morals/values, we get closer to this happening more. Most of these proposed laws are geared towards allowing doctors to not treat people asking for abortions, the day-after pill, or other forms of contraception; however the laws are so generally worded that all walks of health care providers from pharmacists to doctors to nurses can simply just not treat a patient - no referring to another doctor, no telling of other medical options, just simply refusing to treat if "their" notion of religion, morals or values are offended by the patient or the treatment.

The recent SC legislature attempt with H. 3408 (The "Refusal of Care" Act) was thankfully tabled in this years debate; but is scheduled to come back next year ::)
