As a Christian, I am very concerned about how there are no female ob/gyn practices in Marion. Women could be guaranteed a female ob/gyn for routine examinations or surgeries that were scheduled. But women could not be guaranteed who would deliver their baby because ob/gyns rotate. It really bothers me that Morganton doesn't have an all female ob/gyn practice. I think it would be nice if Morganton or Marion could get an all female ob/gyn practice where at least 3 female ob/gyns would work in that practice and rotate with each other only when it comes to delivering babies. I have a strong conviction that the husband of a woman should be the only man who can see and touch her private parts and for the wife to be the only woman to see and touch his private parts. It is a very special bond between a husband and a wife. There is a wonderful all female ob/gyn practice in Hickory, A Woman’s View ( http://awomansview.com ) that women could go to. One of their doctors used to be a missionary in Africa. Biltmore OB/GYN ( http://www.biltmoreob-gyn.com/ ). It is certainly worth driving to Hickory or Asheville to use an all female ob/gyn practice if you are pregnant.

Are you a Christian who has very high standards about purity and modesty like me? If so, I'd love to hear from you. Two good books I've read on purity are "The Purity Principles" By Randy Alcorn ( http://www.christianbook.com/purity-principle... ) and "Sex Is Not the Problem, Lust Is" ( http://www.christianbook.com/sex-is-not-the-p... ).
Many Christians teach that especially women should dress modestly to help men to not have lustful thoughts and that is great, but I feel that there is one huge cultural blind spot that is not being addressed. Many people assume that it is okay for you to be naked in front of the opposite sex in medical settings. Many women don't see anything wrong with male gynecologists because they've been taught that since they are doctors that it's okay. But male gynecologists are not morally above other men at all. Why is it okay for male gynecologists to see and touch the private parts of women who they are not married to while it is not okay for men in other professions? When I read books on purity, I often think about male gynecologists because the books talk about how you should dress modestly. Male gynecologists get to see women naked. How in the world is it possible for male gynecologists to never lust after women when they actually see and access their private parts? Many good Christian men even have a hard time staying pure in mind when they see scantily clothed women at the beach. Some people may think that male gynecologists see so many private parts that they are accustomed to it that it no longer affects them. If that was the case, how in the world could a male gynecologist be married and have children?

I asked Leslie Ludy who wrote "When God Writes Your Love Story" with her husband about 5-6 years ago how she felt about male gynecologists and you can find her response at http://allfemaleobgyndirectory.com/Conversati... .

Some nurses and doctors are taking a bold stand and refusing to do intimate procedures on the opposite sex. One nursing student who is a Christian emailed Medical Patient Modesty not too long ago letting us know that she was in a dilemma because her school required you to do intimate procedures on male patients. She was convicted that she could not do any intimate procedures on male patients at all.

OMG, "Christians" like you really need to get a grip. This is a prime example of your own perverted outlook on life.

I can't believe you asked that question. Are you that blind? It's okay for male gynecologists to "see and touch the private parts of women who they are not married to" because it's their job.

It's not okay for men in other professions because guess what, that's not their profession. Sure it'd be wrong if a construction worked "seen and touched the private parts of women who they are not married to" all day. Duh?

If you don't want a male gynecologist that's cool, go find an all-female center that's your choice, but don't preach to everyone basically condemning them going to a male gynecologist as being wrong.

Or that gynecologist as being wrong for being a male gynecologist.

This is pushing your beliefs a little too far.

God gives certain people knowledge to be doctors. It shouldn't matter what their gender is. Everyone has preferences but no one should tell us our choice of any physician is wrong.

Oh My! One would think that we are living in prehistoric times! I would like to ask just what denomination you are? If you do not want a male doctor, find a female. Keep your feelings of guilt to yourself! Of all the issues we are facing now and this is your main concern? Get real!

I have went into cardiac arrest twice this year. I am certainly glad the paramedics cut my shirt and bra off so they could put the patches on and use the paddles to bring me back. Yes, they were males both times and I thank GOD they were there. They were some of the most professional medical personel I have ever dealt with. Wonder if this person would want to wait if she was in cardiac arrest until two female paramedics got there. I DON'T THINK SO!

I've read the Bible from cover to cover 4 times and I haven't seen anything that remotely condemns the practice of male doctors seeing female clients. Could be your own lustful thoughts making you think the scenario is inappropriate. The problem with most of the variations of Christianity today is they all try to make the Bible say things it simply doesn't.I know this first hand I grew up in a very strict sect which taught women shouldn't wear makeup or jewelry, they should keep their hair up and they should always wear dresses and never slacks. The simple fact of the matter is the bible doesn't say any of those things. Christians should seriously stick to doing the things the Bible teaches and quit trying to make it say things it doesn't.

No where in this article did it mention paramedics. Can you not read or comprehend what you read. The article was about modesty.

I totally agree with what you are saying! I am wondering what denomination actually follows this doctrine? I also think that this should not have been posted on here.

This is a very difficult issue so I am not surprised at the responses I've gotten. I am a Southern Baptist. It is a huge cultural blind spot. We have been taught that it's okay for medical professionals to do pretty much anything. I believe with all my heart that there are many strong Christian women who have gone to a male gynecologist at least one time in their lifetime. I don't think Christian women especially those who are 40 years old or older should feel guilty about it. I just think they need to never go back to a male gynecologist. They just didn't think about it because they were taught that it was okay since he is a doctor. Leslie Ludy who wrote "When God Writes Your Love Story" encouraged me to pray that Christians' eyes would be opened to this cultural blind spot. When I was a kid, I started questioning my mom about male gynecologist. I didn't understand how it was okay for male doctors to see and examine private parts of woman he was not married to. My mom ignored my questioning because I was just a kid. But I was persistent in my concern about this and she finally listened to me when I grew up. She has not gone to a male ob/gyn in about 11 years. She said with what she knows now that she doesn't feel right about going to a male gynecologist.

I believe that it is very special for the husband of a woman to be the only man in the world to touch and examine her private parts atfer puberty and for the wife of a husband to be the only woman to touch and examine his private parts. It is a very special bond when this happens and I honestly believe that this is the way God intended.

I'm very thankful to God that we have doctors. I simply don't think men have any business being gynecologists. There are so many other specialties they could choose from. Medical professionals are humans like all of us are. They are not morally above us.

Midwives used to deliver all babies centuries ago. There are some bad female ob/gyns out there too.

I also feel there are so many extreme modesty violation cases. For example, there's no need to be stripped naked for hand surgery.

I wanted to address one more thing. Gynecological conditions are rarely life threatening. I do realize that sometimes when a lady has a heart attack that she must have heart bypass surgery. I think that female nurses should try their best to cover certain parts of her chest as much as possible. We know that most heart surgeons are male. Heart surgery has saved many lives.

I'd like to see stronger medical patient modesty. I am only aware of one female ob/gyn in Marion and it is my understanding that she only practices gynecology. The main concern is about pregnant women and their husbands who never want a male ob/gyn to deliver their baby at all. You have to choose an all female ob/gyn practice to guarantee that a female ob/gyn would deliver your baby because doctors rotate when it comes to delivering babies. Women can be guaranteed a female ob/gyn for scheduled examinations and surgeries in mixed practices.

I have no desire to hurt anyone's feelings at all. I've contacted some purity organizations. Many of them thanked me for bringing it to their attention. It was obvious many of them never thought about this. My mom said she would have never thought about this if I had not brought it to her attention.

I really would love to hear from any Christians who feel the same way as me. I know it is probably very rare because we all have been taught to not question the medical industry. There are so many other medical issues that concern me such as some doctors and nurses not washing their hands. One of my friends got MRSA from knee surgery. He is permanently disabled.

OMG, you are one sad perverted thinking individual. Would you feel the same if the female OB/GYN that was examining you was lesbian??

the hospital has a female ob-gyn who delivers babies. How could you not know this? Neither of the 2 ob docs are Caucasian - if that also one of your criteria.

Would it be OK with you if a Christian female OB-GYN had been divorced, was a lesbian, bisexual, into bondage/submission, having an affair, not attending church, had a bad bedside manner, had been sued for poor patient care, or ordered every test in the book to make money off you?

Wondering how far your criteria goes.

Are you going to interview all your female docs for all of your purity qualifications? Believe me, if you did you would be booted out the door before you could finish the second criteria - because you are religious fanatic nutso.

HOpe you don't get hemorrhoids or colon cancer, fmale surgeons are few and far between!!
