    It should go without saying, but I'll say it:

    Medical practitioners should be swayed by nothing but science, the wisdom of their own experience, the biological particulars of the patient, and the Hippocratic Oath. If a practitioner can be shown, with evidence, to have been swayed by politics or religion in any way, to even the remotest extent, then he or she should lose the license to practice medicine and face the possibility of lawsuits for malpractice. Zero tolerance for politics or religion in the doctor's office!

I agree, although I think punishment should be based on severity. If it led to something minor than the punishment should be moreso, but leading to severe outcomes should be harshly punished.

    And by the way, here we have an instance where an omnipotent, unassailable Supreme Court is likely to rule in a way we don't like, and base it on the words, "prohibiting the free exercise thereof." Textualism would unfortunately support their conclusion, but originalism probably wouldn't, because it's highly doubtful the Framers had any intention of letting the bible dictate medical procedure. Still, an amendment would be best.

It honestly depends on what the majority wants to lean to on that day. Honestly, the limitations put on the First Amendment alone should be enough but since those are not specifically in there it is potentially at risk.

I think legally the other challenge is directly proving harm came from a comment. It likely did, but it is hard to prove for anything really. And it is where practioners of nuttiness reside.

    The Medical Practice Amendment

    Neither religious scripture, doctrines, or decrees, nor political manifestos, policies, or pronouncements, shall be permitted by Congress to legally justify medical practices out of step with the best science of the day.

I do not see a direct problem with it. I do think it should be a violation of the hypocratic oath anyway.

Medical Boards already do a cruddy job of policing their own, partly because of strict state regulation. Seems like alot of these folks are causing harm with no benefit and should be in line to lose their license at best and get in more trouble than that at worst.

Look Raist bunnies...
