Consequently, they are refusing to prescribe or dispense them.
Before I say anything, I want to state three things: I am a man and english is not my first language so pardon my awkward grammar. Third, I sometimes can be very blunt, please pardon my rudeness if I sound like that but I tend to be very honest so apologize if my comments offend you. It is not my intention, believe me.
Anyway I want to say that is considerably ridiculous. First of all, to my understanding that teachers in any schools (America) are not allow to share their or rather, impose their beliefs on students right? Otherwise they will be fired.. Would you like to have some teachers impose their beliefs or their religious on your kids in school against your beliefs/religious? Well? I don't think any of you would stand by and do nothing. That is similar conception.
Second of all, sure these 'chemical' bc are quite dangerous if misuse but it is more conventional for uneducated women (it is not bad term, I will explain in several mins. Please don't take that term wrong. Believe me..) Funny thing is that conventional doctors & hospital has been killed numbers of patients (americans) per year, yet is it ok for them to mistreat and 'kill' you by unnecessary surgeries, medication errors, etc while it is NOT ok for them to prescribe the simple bc to aid women to 'prevent' from pregnancy WHEN they want to outlaw the abortion? They ranted about that it went against their beliefs to prescribe the bc.. on contrary, that is quite bullshit and nonsense. They simply don't care
That's what I don't get it when I read this article. I must say that 'not to prescribe because it is against their beliefs' is a biggest joke of this year, wait no.. this century
. Yes, sex is mostly for procreation but we as in men & women HAVE our own pleasures to 'satisfy' our needs, why deny the most humanly feeling that God gave to us?
Here's stats on conventional doctors & hospital that needs to consider:
|ALL THESE ARE DEATHS PER YEAR:
12,000 -- unnecessary surgery 8
7,000 -- medication errors in hospitals 9
20,000 -- other errors in hospitals 10
80,000 -- infections in hospitals 10
106,000 -- non-error, negative effects of drugs 2
These total to 250,000 deaths per year from iatrogenic causes!!
What does the word iatrogenic mean? This term is defined as induced in a patient by a physician's activity, manner, or therapy. Used especially of a complication of treatment.
Dr. Starfield offers several warnings in interpreting these numbers:
First, most of the data are derived from studies in hospitalized patients.
Second, these estimates are for deaths only and do not include negative effects that are associated with disability or discomfort.
Third, the estimates of death due to error are lower than those in the IOM report.1
If the higher estimates are used, the deaths due to iatrogenic causes would range from 230,000 to 284,000. In any case, 225,000 deaths per year constitutes the third leading cause of death in the United States, after deaths from heart disease and cancer. Even if these figures are overestimated, there is a wide margin between these numbers of deaths and the next leading cause of death (cerebrovascular disease).
And yet it is ok for people to accept these mistreatments from these conventional doctors while some certain groups threw some fusses about bc or abortion? Again, that's what I don't get about these people. 250,000 people died per year, that is something that people needs to rethink on that before they can accept that physicans/pharmacists 'revoke' your rights for their so-called 'beliefs' sake. Also I hope many of you aware that hundreds, perhaps thousands of these 'conventional' medicines cause numbers of deaths & health problems (side effects) annual as well yet these people didn't complain about these.
And one more thing, many texans don't realize that giant pharmacy industry dumped Prozac in their water system for years. They feel that they don't need to disclose the informations to texans until environment team found out and exposed however they are still dumping prozac in texas water system (actually included 30 states) without
their knowledges or approvals. The moral question: is that ok for them to do that to you by taking your 'rights' away when they dumped in your water system without
your knowledge or approval?
Anyway back to 'unedcated women' term, by that, I mean I am aware that there is natural method to 'prevent' the pregnancy such as 'cycle' method (menstrual cycle) in ancient times. It was like 99.9% chance to not get pregnancy with absolutely no side effects. I am not saying that taking bc is bad for you but it is YOUR choice after all. I refuse to impose my opinions on any women about that since I am not a woman and I respect your choice since your body is yours after all. I realize that many women aren't aware of that 'natural' method to prevent pregnancy, I don't blame them since that kind of 'art of practice' is practically lost on post-industrial revolution civilization after all. Actually, there is a excellent book that explains how to do that without taking these bcs.. Well, you women may want to look into that book to get better understanding of what I said in this post. If I have a girlfriend or wife, I would rather to have my partner to get look at that book and practice that natural method so that she will not suffer these side effects such as water-retention, aches and stuff. But if I or we didn't acquire that natural method knowledge, I would support my wife/girlfriend whatever she wants as long as she think it is best for her. Heck, it is her
rights and her
body... she is the one who handle it (her health/body), not these idiotic physicans or greedy pharmacists.
If there is any kind of 'prevention' medicine for men or sperm, I am willing to try that out as well but as long as there is no side effects or surgery.
Well, whenever I finally graduate as a doctor, I am going to not allow my so-called beliefs, religious or feelings to impose on any women patients. I am going to treat any women patient based on their rights
, & needs
regardless of my so-called beliefs. That's what being a doctor means.
Also that's which why I pick osteopathic physician career since based on their practice to a "whole person" approach to medicine, treating the entire person rather that just the symptoms.
I quoted Hippocrates:
|There are in fact two things, science and opinion; the former begets knowledge, the latter ignorance.
