But Boyer remained haunted by the ER doctor's refusal — so profoundly, she hasn't been to see a gynecologist in the two and a half years since. "I haven't gotten the nerve up to go, for fear of being judged again," she says.How dare this prick of a doctor set himself as judge of someone. Has he ever been in her shoes? Of course not. What a double standard here. Men's choices don't seem to be a problem to these assholes. A man can get a vasectomy or condoms or Viagra and I don't see anyone stopping them. But a simple prescription for the pill or a morning after drug seems to let some doctors start playing god.
Perhaps NOW or some woman's organization needs to start protesting when cases like this happen. I would be happy to grab a sign such as This Hospital Discriminates Against Women, No Double Standard for Reproductive Care, or Stop Playing God with Women's Health Care, etc, and stand outside of a medical clinic or hospital.
