-Obama administration is working to repeal DHHS regulation that prevents health care organizations that receive federal funds from firing or refusing to hire health care workers who refuse to dispense medical care for "moral" reasons. Still wishy-washy on actual "conscience" clauses which allow health care workers to refuse medical care in the first place. Important distinction: what is being repealed is the idea that a clinic that provides family planning services could fire someone who refuses to dispense birth control for their refusal. What is not being repealed is their supposed right to refuse care. This concept of conscience clauses and right to refuse care can and does apply to much more than reproductive health. Doctors could refuse to see or touch gay or trans patients, pharmacists could refuse to dispense medications to people who are transitioning, EMTs could withhold lifesaving measures from someone they found "repulsive" and claim conscience.

What I want to know is: what kind of conscience can rationalize refusing medical care, which in some cases is life saving and in almost all cases is necessary to some degree, on the basis of personally not wanting to encourage "immoral" behavior? What kind of conscience thinks that another person's health and LIFE is worth less than their ability to say they are "moral"? When did your right to a "clean" conscience trump the right of someone else to live? You have to think that this person in front of you has less of a right to live than you have to sleep at night. Its fucking psychotic. How dare you call yourself moral when you are willing to let people die for your conscience?

Americans have no identity.
we have no culture.
we have been seduced by the need to sanitize all that is real out of our lives, smells, bodily functions, where our food comes from.
we dont experience life, we watch tv and let those fantasy characters experience it for us. we live vicariously through a collection of tubes and wires. instead of going out and doing something, we watch "reality" tv!!!
we are told from a very young age that in order to be a person who is good/loved/wanted/needed we need to buy these products which will help us reduce the smells that our body produces, take away the hair that grows on us, and make us as close to mannequins as possible. no one will love you if you look how a human actually looks! there is a hate of ourselves. we dont want to admit to being human.
we think ourselves as equal to or above god/s by taming nature and bending it to our will instead of living within it as the functioning part of a unit that we are. we think our ability to build something that is biggest/faster/uglier/(and most importantly)NEW gives us the right to strut around as if we own the planet.

news flash dipshits!
the planet owns us! we are only here because it is. we are dependent on nature and the planet wether you like it or not. there are things that are bigger than you. get over yourself and start taking care of your mother. what does it matter if you have hair on your legs? what does it matter that when you sweat, you smell different? why is it disgusting? its what happens!!! DEAL WITH IT!!

i hate people.
