It Didn't Seem to Compromise Their Financial Beliefs

Take the money and run. Note that it occurs 11 months after they had the money and had caused pain, now they have religious beliefs.
Lesbian: Doctors denied artificial insemination because of religion - Yahoo! News: "Benitez claims that on her first visit, Brody informed her that while her religious principles precluded her from performing the procedure on a gay woman, another doctor in the clinic would.

Benitez says, however, that after 11 months of costly, painful tests and surgeries, when the time came for the insemination procedure, she was turned down and told that she 'would not be treated fairly' or 'get timely care' at the clinic because of Dr. Brody's and other staff members' religious beliefs.

The doctors' lawyer, Carlo Coppo, said his clients were committed to fair treatment of Benitez — from fertilization to pregnancy and birth — but that aiding the actual act of conception compromised their religious views.

"[Brody] believes that participating in the [fertilization procedure], she is acting as the male," Coppo said. "It is an elective, invasive procedure, and to be there for the moment of conception, she religiously can't participate.""
By their reasoning they area ALWAYS acting as the male in this process and that argument should have never held water in court. The older I get, the more discrimination I see. This country wants to be an Aryan nation and as usual can't confront the issues directly, just tries to do it piece by piece, person by person until the haves and have mores are completely separated and encapsulated in their tiny aritficial bubbles and they no longer have to deal with us riffraff.

As a healthcare practitioner my goal was to give the best treatment possible and it didn't depend on my religious beliefs. Those belong at home, not in the workplace. We are supposed to do no harm, that is why those who prepared and administered the lethal cocktail for the death penalty should have their licence revoked.

First rule of medicine. Thou shalt do no harm. These people need new jobs that don't involve public contact.
