Linda Harvey Urges Parents Not to Allow Gay Doctors to Treat Their Children
Wow. Just wow. Mission America’s Linda Harvey warns parents not to allow LGBT doctors and nurses to treat their children in the absolutely deplorable clip below.
“Respect” for family values is at stake, after all!
But let’s say your eleven year-old has broken her leg rather badly and needs to be in the hospital a few days, which would you prefer: a nurse who’s proud of her lesbianism, who has rainbow identifiers on her work clothing, or a nurse who does not?
I would like to suggest that parents think long and hard about this. If you want your children to admire people who proclaim a homosexual lifestyle, they’re involvement with your child during a hospital stay is sure to be an influence. And let me be clear that folks involved in these behaviors can be certainly competent workers but they are tacking on to their workplace identity one that is highly offensive to many people and can be erroneously influential to children who won’t, or shouldn’t, see the whole picture of how this behavior really manifests itself.
Here’s what parents can do: select your pediatrician very carefully, first of all. There are a few homosexual doctors treating kids, there are far more nurses, LPNs, technicians and other health care workers in these lifestyles so you may want to consider writing a letter that you file with your pediatrician that should your child ever be hospitalized, you do not want your child to be treated or cared for by one of these members of the Children’s Hospital gay employees group except in the case of an emergency situation. But for routine in-hospital care where contact with your child would be required, your values should be respected.
Respect? There is nothing respectful about any of Harvey’s suggestions. If parents are to have a discussion centered on respect with their family physicians and emergency care providers, respect for human dignity, decency and life would be a good place to start.
