Honestly i really dont think that religion should have anything at all to do with health care. People sometimes die because they dont get the help they need! my family knows people who have died because they didnt get the care they needed because of their religion interfering with it.

It's a patients personal decision to accept or refuse any treatment. Are you suggesting we keep people from refusing medical care? Would you have the government FORCE people to receive treatment against their will? I guess I'm not really clear on your point, but if it is to disregard personal belief and choice in the name of making people better, I think that could be one of the biggest violations of individual liberty....ever.

As I said before, we shouldn't force medical care on people. If people want to follow their beliefs they should be able to, no matter what. It is an infringement on personal liberty.

So, I don't have anything to respond to. The question remains whether we should deny personal rights in the name of medical treatment. I haven't received any reason to believe we should deny personal belief and its practice. Your position is unconstitutional and unethical. You obviously haven't denied this.

It always comes down to the individual rights as the patient.

When the patient is informed of the procedure along with the options of the pros and cons, it is the patient who has the right to allow or reject any medical treatment.

Since it's not anyone's right or business on another's personal decision to impose their own view against the patient's right.

You may not agree, but,

respect it.

It is right.

..... Formal resolution = awesome. You pose a question and choose con which means you are going con the premise that "Religions do not interfere with healthcare"
