Christian Doctor Fired in UK for Suggesting Gender Is Biological

Posted by Martin C. Fox on July 10, 2018

“Firstly, we are not allowed to say what we believe. Secondly, as my case shows, we are not allowed to think what we believe. Finally, we are not allowed to defend what we believe,” he said.

Believes in free speech and is a Christian. Not a good combination in Londonstan.

by Thomas D. Williams PH.D.

A medical doctor with 26 years of experience working at the National Health Service (NHS) has been deemed “unfit to work” after insisting on identifying patients by their biological sex.

Dr. David Mackereth, 55, began training in May to become a health and disability assessorfor the government but ran into trouble when his Christian and scientific convictions ran afoul of department protocols.

In Britain’s socialized medical system, second opinions are typically given by other NHS physicians, chosen not by the parents or the patient, but by the attending physician who gave the first opinion.

I wonder if Sarah ‘Death Panel’ Palin saw the second opinion scam coming?

I admit, my reaction to the plight of young Alfie Evans is colored by my experience with my own grandson, Joseph, who suffers from a similar disorder.

I see Joseph’s innocence in Alfie’s eyes, and I struggle with the marked physical resemblance between Alfie and Joseph at that age.  I also vividly recall the doctors counseling my daughter to abort her pregnancy, to save her child from suffering.

“He will likely live 18 months, certainly no more than three years,” they told us solemnly.  Joseph celebrated his 17th birthday in February of this year… Read the rest of this entry »
