Civil marriage has nothing to do with being a better ObGyn
When I am on call, I look forward to reading the latest issue of OBG Management. In November, however, I was dismayed by the Analysis & Commentary section, which seemed to have a political agenda. The article was one-sided and offered minimal facts and data to support the opinion of the author. I kept asking myself how the topic applied to my field. What does civil marriage for lesbians have to do with being a better ObGyn? Do I really need to read another article on discrimination, homosexuality, or civil marriage—all of which are constantly in the news?
There are plenty of agendas vying for our time. This was a poor choice of topic, in my humble opinion.
