I read in your June 21 issue (Blog Jammin') that St. Joseph Hospital's gynecologic chief of staff, Dr. Bill Weiderman, has resigned his administrative post in protest of the new policies the Catholic church has imposed.
I want to express my gratitude to Dr. Weiderman and to Dr. Kim Ervin and other courageous physicians who have the integrity to stand against more restrictions that have been made on their medical practices by this Christian sect.
I am dismayed that in America, where freedom of religion is supposed to be a cornerstone of our way of life, my rights can be usurped by any religious group. Only my doctor and I should have a say in my health care.
