land of the free, home of the bigots

I promised that I would stop talking politics but more insanity locally means I need to speak. A new bill in the Michigan Senate could allow emergency room doctors and nurses to deny emergency medical care to gay people, women who need a life-saving abortion, and even those with AIDS, for reasons of "conscience."

Michigan Senate Bill 975 would provide a "license to discriminate" to hospitals and clinics if a healthcare provider's "religious beliefs, moral convictions, or ethical principles" dictate that providing a medical care would be a violation of conscience.

The idiots are also contemplating making Michigan a "right to work" state.
