    Michigan republicans prepare to pass bill refusing right of gays to treatment

    10 or 12 years ago, I never thought I would read one article like this, about human rights in the US (Well, ok, maybe I read a few articles, but you could count them on one hand), let alone hundreds of them. It's a disgrace that people could be refused treatment, because of either their colour, race, sexuality, sex etc..Before the right wing extremists lecture any other country about human rights, they should take a good look at themselves in the mirror:

    The Conscientious Objector Policy Act would allow health care providers to assert their objection within 24 hours of when they receive notice of a patient or procedure with which they don't agree. However, it would prohibit emergency treatment to be refused. Three other three bills that could affect LGBT health care were also passed by the House Wednesday which would exempt a health insurer or health facility from providing or covering a health care procedure that violated ethical, moral or religious principles reflected in their bylaws or mission statement.
