Comment & Controversy
Physicians often make decisions about whom to treat
Dr. O’Hanlan’s article was thought-provoking and informative, but I found the case vignette that opens the article to be slightly inflammatory. I am left wondering what details were left out.
Does the HMO provide reproductive endocrinology and fertility services to its members? Do the gynecologists who are mentioned offer insemination? Is there a clause in their contracts that exempts them from providing insemination to same-sex couples, or other procedures they may find morally reprehensible, such as elective termination of pregnancy?
