Armageddon Must be Nigh

How else to explain this? (Click the link, read the whole thing. I can't summarize that.)

As CIDU Bill puts it:

Largely ignored by the media was a law recently passed by the Oklahoma legislature that stated that doctors can’t be held accountable — criminally or civilly — for lying to pregnant women about the health of their babies if they’re concerned that the truth might encourage the woman to seek an abortion.

Let’s repeat that: the doctor can lie to his patient if he believes that telling her the truth might lead her to do something to which, though legal, he is morally opposed.

Wow. Fundamentalism on the rise.
