When was the last time anyone, male or female, went to a church, synagogue, mosque or legislators’ office for medical services? I hope the answer is never, since the inhabitants of those places have no expertise in medical services, with apologies to U.S. Rep. Paul Broun.
Why, then, are those whose expertise is in the metaphysics of religion dictating – to the exclusion of all else medically related – how female reproductive medical services are rendered? Why are white conservative Christian men – that is, allegedly Christian – telling women who may be Jewish, Islamic or atheist how they can or cannot deal with their reproductive health?
What’s next – the denial of scientific theory and condemnation of those who do not conform to conservative lifestyles? Oh, yeah, we’re already there.
