This is what happens when our chief medical officer, the US Surgeon General,  becomes a politician and not a medical professional.

For doctors who advocate this way I suggest we test how strong their beliefs are in these methods. Let’s pound their hands with a hammer and then ask them to get by on Tylenol alone. When they can do that, then I’ll being willing to listen to their sales pitch.

A new era of conservative values are spilling over at a federal and state level, some of which role back laws and precedence which have been in effect for the last sixty years. But they do more than that, some changes like the new HHS ruling for healthcare providers which add the “moral consciousness” clause, give wide latitude to individuals to act out their bias, prejudices and bigotry in ways that haven’t existed since the 1800’s
