Kansas to Pregnant Women: “A Little Lie from Your Doctor Won’t Hurt You”

Kansas to Pregnant Women: “A Little Lie from Your Doctor Won’t Hurt You”.

How much longer are we going to pretend the medical community doesn’t have an agenda?

I don’t trust doctors. Some would call me paranoid. Some would say I’m overreacting. I wonder how much longer they’ll be able to hold on to that theory.

Legislators, supposed christians and state leaders, have sent a message. They don’t give a shit what you think. They don’t give a shit about the AMA. They don’t give a shit about ethics. And they sure as hell don’t give a shit if you trust your doctor.

It’s perfectly okay and encouraged to lie to patients.

Do you really believe it stops there?

This touches on many topics. I won’t even touch the religion in politics or the abortion issue as this is an autism blog but understand the entirety of my opinions for all three results in no one ever cares until it happens to them.

Pro-lifers believe abortion should be illegal but would they be okay when it gets to the point of arranged marriages? Not all pro-lifers believe that they shouldn’t be able to use birth control. Not every religious person will be okay with a doctor lying to them or others. Not every religious person will be okay with their bosses asking about their sex life.

How irrational are we now? No one cares until it happens to them. No one cares about our concerns or our children. No one wants to believe that this type of thing could actually happen in this country. The medical community couldn’t really be in the pockets of big pharma or the CDC. Politicians and money can’t really be what’s going on here. We can’t seriously be more concerned with reputations and appearance than the actual health of our children. There couldn’t possibly be an agenda.

Do you care yet?

It’s hard to believe I can still get angry even when I’m not surprised at all.
