As if there weren’t enough problems in California thanks to Obamacare, what with doctors retiring early, moving to other states, refusing to participate in the Ocare exchange, refusing to take new Medicare/Medicaid patients, the California government seems determined to drive doctors out
(Breitbart) Gov. Jerry Brown just signed a law requiring that California health care providers be trained to better understand the specific health needs of the LGBT community.
The law is meant to target inequities in medical treatment for LGBT patients who, according to the San Francisco Examiner, suffer from a lack of provider understanding of gay and transgendered health issues.
Assemblyman Richard Gordon, D-Menlo Park, who authored the original bill AB 496, contends that LGBT patients have a variety of negative experiences with doctors and other healthcare professionals.
Lesbian couples complain that they have difficulty finding OB-GYN doctors willing to counsel them with in vitro fertilization options. Gordon adds that gays and lesbians criticize hospital staff for not treating them with respect while visiting their hospitalized life partners.
Sensitivity training is just another word for “thought control”. The LGBT community constantly tells us that they are just like everyone else. If that’s the case, why do they need extra stuff?
