Calling it an unethical practice and making it an official unethical practice are two very different balls of wax. The move taken by Britain is going to send our domestic crazies into a right bother about us doing it here. I just hope a way can be found to make their nightmare come true.

The United States are looking less and less like a first world country to me...refusal of equal rights can't go on much longer now.

Because Medical practice is licensed and overseen State by State, that is going to be a hard one. There are States that still allow electroshock and lobotomies, fer pity's sake!

Then quit bitc:hing about something that's not your concern you dumb A$$ Fa$$ot
When you hear your neighbour screaming like their house is on fire, at every minute of the day...it is your business to try and talk some sense into them.

Besides, who and what people are/are doing does not concern you...so why are you on here talking about it every day?
