Posted on 10/09/2012 8:17:40 AM PDT by expat1000
Every now and then some conservative proposes that we staple green cards to any foreign students back right after he receives this diploma. I counter that proposal by proposing that stories like this be stapled to the front of anyone who thinks thats a good idea.
The October issue of the Journal of Medical Ethics contains a case study involving Muslim medical students who refuse to examine female patients because its against their religion.
A recent article published in the Journal of Medical Ethics grappled with that question in the context of male Muslim medical students refusing to learn how to examine females because they believe it is wrong to touch women to whom they are not married or related. The article arguespersuasively in my viewthat medical conscience should not extend this far because it would result in future physicians lacking an essential competency:
And by essential competency, were talking about medical schools graduating Dr. Mohammeds who have no ability or interest in treating the medical problems of half the human race. Thats about as essential as we can get.
This isnt a minor technical issue. I blogged a few weeks ago about what the impact of gender apartheid medicine in Burundi is doing to Muslim women there.
There are only three female and 15 male gynecologists in the whole of Burundi. One of them, who wants to remain anonymous, says that she is always overbooked and that most of her patients are Muslim.
Burundi has some of the worst infant mortality rates in the world. The worst infant mortality rates in the world are in Afghanistan. Even Saudi Arabia, which is wallowing in wealth, has an infant mortality rate that is worse than the Israeli West Bank, which has access to Israeli medical services. As is life expectancy for women in Saudi Arabia.
Muslim gender apartheid has a number of troubling implications, but one of them is the denial of medical services to women. The more Muslim doctors we graduate, the more we will run into this problem.
It is long past time to quit accommodating these savages.
Well said, FreedomPoster!
Thanks to an anonymous FReeper FRiend for the heads up on this thread...
Expel them immediately!
Or, better yet, don’t allow ANY MOSLEM to enroll in medical school!
Going further, I’d prefer that no Moslem be allowed to enter the USA!
And, going even further, I’d prefer to give the Moslems who are in the USA a choice to either renounce Islam, or leave!
The sooner we get tough on Islam, the better off we will all be!
Islam is not a religion; it is a political movement masquerading as a religion. And, since it is a death cult (270 million deaths in 1400 years attributed to the spread of Islam!), it is the most successful political movement in the history of the world.

Refusing pre-natal care to women lowers the abortion rate? I think you forgot your sarcasm tag.
Stupid should hurt.
LOL! Now, that is funny!
HST, if I were a doctor, I would not touch any of those women, either!
In fact, I am not a doc, and I won’t touchem!
The gyno I was referred to is a Mooselimb. I had no choice but if I can find a non-Mooselimb I will switch.
no muslim doctors for me....I’d take a gun in my purse to any appointment then refuse to let the pig touch this old body
Now that we are in socialized medicine shortage territory, we can’t afford to waste the medical school slots on these foreign cave men.
This is what will happen. Muslims will eventually be forced to mess (and abuse) with the infidel women they hate in med school and the medical profession. Then the Federal communists will say - well if Muzzies have to see women, Christians have to kill babies and conduct euthanisa...
Thank you so little
Good grief! Yes, boot them out. So sick of these barbarians.
Why is is okay to discriminate on someone because of her sex? Is it okay to refuse to treat someone based on his race?
females are property. Are we already hvg Sharia Law in medical school? Wow!
So, if doctors quit due to Obamacare, maybe some of our doctors will be the muslim brotherhood. Sounds like a plan. Be sure and have MB on the death panels - I’m sure they’ve already picked IPAB out.
