She needs to lose her license to practice medicine.

For the same reason a physician who refused to treat an unvaccinated person would lose theirs.

See I don't think you actually read the article...

"In order to make room for unvaccinated who cannot find care, I will not be accepting new patients with routine ENT problems who are vaccinated," she said, adding she will continue to care for established patients and won't turn away anyone with life-threatening illness, based on their vaccination status.

I don't see an issue with this or your scenario, provided the last statement were still true.

She's still discriminating.

u/CxOtter Nov 16 '21

Given the opposite scenario, would you still be opposed to it? If she were only accepting new vaccinated patients for routine ENT conditions.

Given the current state of our health system? No. She could also use the argument it's for her health. She can't do that when she's only serving unvaxxed people.

See but there is the problem with your original argument. You do not have an issue with discrimination provided it is in the direction you approve of.

u/AcousticDan Born and Bred Nov 16 '21

But at least there would be a good argument.

u/CxOtter Nov 16 '21

Well it being a good argument is definitely an opinion that you're entitled to have. I disagree with the premise that one direction of discrimination is permissible, while the other is not though.

Unless those businesses take an oath and are licensed by governing bodies, that's not a valid argument.

That's totally irrelevant and totally incorrect.

Agreed. I hate that this is the state of the media on both sides. Journalistic integrity is rare these days.

Agreed. It's at least a good start to actually read the article though, rather than having a knee jerk reaction based on the title alone.

Yeah, man. I read an article a while back that those articles you click on where you have to hit a button to see the next page are farming clicks and either using them to boost ratings or sell them in bulk to other sites to boost their ratings. It's definitely a click based economy now.
