    I expect that most Canadians think that medical decisions in a modern enlightened country like theirs should not be determined by superstition (religious reasons).

        If you think religious reasons are superstition, you have no clue what you are talking about.

        Indeed.

            Ah, that would mean medical decisions being subject to such beliefs as "inoculation is dangerous."

              I mean professional decisions just like you would not want your airline pilot whipping out his Qur’an or his Bible in place of his takeoff checklist. Professionalism comes before personal preference and if the practitioner has a conflict then that is not the profession that suits him.

                Utter nonsense. There is no conflict with religion and flying a plane. This is exactly why you liberals are anti freedom - everyone MUST conform to your way of thinking and acting. And let's be honest prescribing birth control in this case has nothing to do with a woman's "health."

                  From the article cited:

                  Source: above

                  Justice Sloviter in the Startzell v. Philadelphia case reminds us:


                  If there is a bedrock principle … it is that the government may not prohibit the expression of an idea simply because society finds the idea offensive or disagreeable. In public debate our own citizens must tolerate insulting and even outrageous speech in order to provide adequate breathing space to the Freedoms protected.

                  So, the opinions of society are completely irrelivant to the law in Canada.

                    That is a pretty stupid analogy there FF since I would sure hope that my doctor would inform me of ethical concerns of my medical care as much as I would hope that a pilot would also be ethical when it comes to his job. Did you even bother to read the article in question or did you just think of the first dumb objections you could come up with and that was it?

                      The work that a physician does is prescribed by professional codes of practice. These have nothing to do with free expression. A good professional does not take his personal prejudices into the workplace.

                        Plus his analogy is pretty stupid. I would sure hope that a doctor would present me with ethical concerns with my medical care just as I would sure hope that a pilot would take ethical concerns when doing his job. I don't think FF even bothered to think before he said this argument because if he did, he'd realize how dumb comparing a preflight check list with 'using your Bible' to do a preflight with. I would hope that a pilot would follow ethical concerns with his or her aircraft and ensure it is in running order before they sign as much as I would hope a doctor would inform me of all ethical concerns when it comes to my medical care. More proof that FF doesn't think before he post...

                          That's complete nonsense FF because you can't seriously be expected to throw out ethics out the window the second you walk into an office. I don't cuss, despite the fact that many in my work place do. Do my ethical concerns fly out the window the second I walk into the building against cussing and I should just ignore my personal rule against it, just because I walked into work? Where did you come up with that insane logic from? By that insane logic, I should just do whatever I am told and never question something that could put others at risk. Is that the logic you're going with there, FF?

                            You are exactly right, Bill.

                            When Jean Chretien proposed to have same sex marriage legalized in Canada in 2003, he said, "To have a referendum to decide on the fate of the minority, it's a problem. It's why we have constitutions – to protect the rights of the minority. It's why we have the Charter of Rights. So if it is always the majority vote by referendum, who will defend the minorities?"

                            The law in Canada was changed because it is "dangerous for the majority to decide what the minority should do".

                            And Canada was assimilated long before this latest issue with birth control.

                              Do you understand how stupid you sound?

                              Every politician and judge takes his personal prejudices into the workplace. Every journalist does the same thing.

                              I have a friend who worked as a nurse for 30 years, a surgical nurse. She is a believer. When the abortion laws were struck down in this country, she refused to participate in those procedures (only done by one doctor in our community of quite a few, all the rest will not perform abortions), the hospital removed her completely from the OR. She was not even allowed to work there when it wasn't an abortion procedure.

                              Did the hospital board leave their prejudices at home when the discussed her case? They didn't remove the doctors from the OR, even my own, who is a Catholic, and will not perform abortions. Just my friend. Where was their logic? There was none. It was all because they could remove her, but if they removed the doctors, they would lose them from the community and nobody wanted that.

                              Prejudice indeed.
