Catholic Church Waging War on Women and Gays

“Pharmacists must seek to raise people's awareness so that all human beings are protected from conception to natural death, and so that medicines truly play a therapeutic role”

Pope Benedict XVI said Monday that pharmacists have a right to use conscientious objection to avoid dispensing emergency contraception or euthanasia drugs - and told them they should also inform patients of the ... via Fables of the reconstruction

Can you bring it forward?
I don't save posts like you obsessively do. I don't remember exactly where it was. YOU are the one who goes searching for posts. Go back and look where the homophobic poster was on. It was last week sometime.

In the past year Followers children without medical care have died of a renal infection, a strangulated hernia, and diabetes. New Clackamas County District Attorney Terry Gustafson wants to file charges, but has concluded that Oregon laws providing religious immunity to charges of homicide by abuse or neglect and manslaughter, enacted in 1995 and 1997, prevent her from doing so.

If it's only a few days ago, it shouldn't be very hard to find Bitner.

But I understand why you don't bring it forward.

It takes time away from you posting that I'm a liar and a fraud and mentally ill!

The United States has a vast array of religious exemption laws that allow parents to deprive children of health care. These include religious exemptions from criminal charges, civil abuse and neglect charges, immunizations, physical examinations, prophylactic eyedrops, metabolic testing of newborns, lead poison screening, and instruction about disease.

A parent may be beating or torturing a child, but if he or she can show that the child was prayed for, criminal charges must be dismissed.

Child abuse in London linked to African witchcraft is “getting worse”, an expert warned as he revealed shocking details of a case involving the alleged torture of a 12-year-old girl.

Dr Hoskins said:“It’s a serious problem and it is under-reported. I’ve got several cases which are London-based child abuse involving witchcraft. I think it’s getting worse.”

All people that adore their own religious cults don't perceive there is a problem with religion.

It's only when they observe the neighbor's religion they fore-see a problem!

No, it takes time away from the other things I'm also doing today.

YOU are the one who's always searching for posts. Feel free. The fact is that I did agree with you. I've done so before in this last year. You are wrong when you say I haven't.

Mr Hoskins gave evidence this year in the case of Kristy Bamu, a 15-year-old east London boy drowned in a bath during an exorcism. Eric Bikubi, 28, and Magalie Bamu, 29 — Kristy’s sister — were convicted of murder.

As long as religion continues, people will believe they must perform exorcisms to relieve the believers of demons.

It just keeps on and on and on with parents teaching their children the same old nonsense.

Yes, that's true. However, even before she asked for the abortion, they had already determined that there was no way to save it.
Then that means that they were against abortion ... period ... and that "also" stemmed from their religious beliefs that "god" is offended by abortion.

What is your point anyway, or do you even have one???

My point is what it's always been. That they should be sued, not for their beliefs, but for lying to the woman, and for medical malpractice. They ignored the law, and told her that they COULDN'T do an abortion, not that they didn't want to. Even though they KNEW that there that the fetus was going to die no matter what.

What lies?

If abortion is illegal they did not ignore the law, they followed the law.

Obviously it is left up to the physicians to decide what is and what is NOT life-threatening to the women, in balance with the life of the fetus.

That is a tough call for them when abortion is illegal.

I would not sue them under such circumstances. But I would try to make abortion legal, and hope that I could find physicians in a Catholic-dominated country that would perform abortions.

That also would be a tough call.

Ireland's constitution officially bans abortion, but a 1992 Supreme Court ruling said the procedure should be legalized for situations when the woman's life is at risk from continuing the pregnancy. Five governments since have refused to pass a law resolving the confusion, leaving Irish hospitals reluctant to terminate pregnancies except in the most obviously life-threatening circumstances.

Problem-solvers are great at solving problems in "hindsight."

I wouldn't want Bitner on my case if I made the wrong call according to Bitner.

She's mighty anxious to sue!!!

Abortion to save a woman's life is NOT illegal. THAT lie, when they told her they COULDN'T do the abortion because Ireland is a Catholic country. They lied.

Did you even READ the article?

Those in religion are ever anxious to bend rules of government to suit their new darling cults.

As long as people keep on adoring religion, religion and government will never be separated. It's not possible.

In Dettmer v. Landon, 799 F.2d 929 (4th Cir. 1986), a prisoner named Herbert Daniel Dettmer who was following the correspondence course of the Church and School of Wicca, was denied access to knives which he said were necessary to his religious practice as a Wiccan. The United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia decided in Dettmer's favor, finding that Wicca was a religion, rejecting the argument put forward by the Department of Correction that it was merely a "conglomeration" of occult practices. This decision was appealed to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, and was argued before the appellate court in April 1986, which ruled that although Wicca was a religion, it was not a violation of the First Amendment to deny a prisoner access to potential weapons.
