Florida is turning the Hippocratic Oath into the Hypocritic Oath.
Two weeks ago we alerted you to a bill making its way through the Florida State House by Pensacola physician and Republican state Rep. Joel Rudman that would allow doctors and insurance companies the freedom to drop patients based on what they’re calling “conscience-based objection”
Yesterday the Florida House approved SB 1580/HB 1403 officially called the “Protections of Medical Conscience” Act. As written it states that healthcare providers cannot turn anyone away based on their “race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.” But gives the physicians the right to turn away LGBT+ patients without suffering any ramifications .
Florida Democrat Anna Eskamani offered up a potential scenario.
Democrat Michele Rayner-Goolsby, who is married to a woman, compared it to Jim Crow laws.
“The sponsor of the bill purports that this bill doesn’t discriminate,” she said. “But listen, y’all. I am old enough, I am Black enough, and I am queer enough, and I’m woman enough to know that the impact of this bill — and I would argue the very intent of this bill is to discriminate against folks.”
The bill passed the Senate on Friday on a 28-11 vote. It passed last night in the House 84-34 vote. It now heads to Governor Ron DeSantis’ desk for signing which he will most assuredly sign into law.
If you still don’t think that Florida is trying to kill the LGBT community you are dead wrong.
And if you live in Florida you could just be dead. PERIOD.
BOYCOTT FLORIDA TOURISM!
LGBT FLORIDIANS GET OFF YOU TANNED LAZY ASSES AND PROTEST!
IF YOU LIVE IN FLORIDA ONLY SUPPORT LGBT+ BUSINESSES!

Florida is becoming a haven for the revival of Nazi Germany. The Nazis condoned discrimination against the Jews . . . The Florida government is condoning discrimination against the LGBT Community. THIS MUST BE REVERSED!
At least some people recognize the similarities to Hitlers Germany! When will people realize how dangerous DeSantis is!!
I think since LGBT voted for DeSantis, why should anyone care about them more than themselves?
It seems that every new law puts us closer and closer to a fascist state under our present governor. I am actually entertaining the choice to leave Florida for a better state. I never imagined it would come to this. I am both sad and frightened.
I agree so much with your statement.
What and where is a better state?
WHAT is a better state? A: ANY state!
WHERE is a better state A: ANYwhere!
.I am truly scared, I love the dream home I have created. Now I may have to move. L
Transgenders leave Florida and don’t come back there is male and female just as god created if you wanna go play mr and ms potato head go somewhere else we don’t want you here imposing yourself onto others. Goodbye demons.
FUCK YOU. From the website owner. Troglodyte
Wow. Spreading hate speech. Are you a bitter person that is so lonely and miserable that you have to spew venom?. “Hurting people hurt”.Do everyone a favor and just die. Your nastiness and unhappiness with your own pathetic existence won’t be missed in Florida or anywhere else.
U ARE NO DIFFERENT FROM THEIR PRECEPTS!
If ANYBODY needs to leave the state of Florida, it would people like you, Ron Desantis and the rest of his regime! I was born and raised here in Florida, I was raised to treat people how I want and SHOULD Be treated. We as humans have COMPLETELY FORGOTTEN our history and how to respectfully treat with kindness and compassion, we’re letting the EXTREME CHRISTIAN FAR RIGHT be in control of our State government, and if certain PEOPLE are elected to our federal government, you can bet your bottom dollar that they will be there too, because they already are there. There has never been a better time in HISTORY to STAND UP AND FIGHT than now!!!!
I support you you could not have said it any better. Move to San Francisco if your transgender Florida doesn’t want you. Transgender is a mental illness
Why the fuck don’t you leave. Idiot
Shame on you. What are you going to do,when one of your loved family members gets enough courage to come out? What if one of your children commits suicide because they know their own mother or father wont accept them. God help us for what is coming. I guarantee every family has at least 1lgbtq family member. Maybe you,ll ‘”Woke Up” and realize what your saying when it hits home.I really feel bad for any family member you might have. No law can change how a person is born.
I bet you consider yourself a Christian. You know absolutely nothing about the preaching of Jesus Christ. That’s obvious by the hateful bile you’re spewing here.
I have nothing against the LBTQ community at least you know who you are but the transgenders are mentally I’ll and kids should not be messed with let them be kids until they reach 18 and let them decide
The transgenders are mentally ill but this affects all gay and lesbian folks who know their gender identity as well as the transgenders
People like YOU just don’t or don’t care to understand ANYONE in the LGBTQIA+ community, especially Trans people and Trans youth, there’s NOTHING WRONG WITH THEM, except in your self righteous close minded heartless opinion, they’re wrong and mentally ill. You’re wrong and mentally ill for thinking the way you do, you’ve been brainwashed into this kind of thinking, and unfortunately people like YOU can’t be fixed.
Like they say ” you can fix ugly but you can’t fix STUPID! “
Dan, CHECK YOURSELF FIRST!!! Trans youth aren’t mentally ill, THEY KNOW WHO THEY ARE, but people like YOU and out current state government DON’T WANT THEM TO EXIST!! Same goes for ANYONE ELSE in the LGBTQIA+ commUNITY!!! BEING HUMAN ISN’T ILLEGAL!!! Being ignorant and heartless SHOULD DEFINITELY be criminal!!!
Heather, biology and psychology are two different things! Biology says xx chromosome indicates “FEMALE”, xy chromosome indicates “MALE”,
Any other positions TRANSition to psychology, where xx is convinced (by themselves or others) that they were supposed to be xy. Now, there are (so called) “Healthcare professionals” willing to alter your body to fit what you are thinking at the moment!
God created us Male & female.anything else is sin.
God loves all of his creation, but He hates sin. He says those who practice it will not enter Heaven. Sodom & Gommorah are examples of God’s judgment on sin. It effects everyone in the city or state ,etc. Who put their stamp of approval on it. If trying to save the soul and save them from He’ll is bad, then Christians are.
Let kids be kids.
No transgendering of children.
No sex change medications for children.
Allow children to become informed adults.
Explain how my marriage to my wife has so negatively ruined your life? I bet it hasn’t. I also bet that you know many gay and lesbian individuals that you come into contact with every single day and have no idea who they are. Despite what Desantis is try to make people believe we have no “agenda” to try to get others to join us or influence them to “be gay”. Why the hell would we? Would you ever encourage some one to “choose” to be gay so everyone could speak hatefully about them? So they could live in a state where the Governor has all but said go ahead and shoot every gay person you see? Ofcourse not. I grew up with a mom and a dad, I always thought I would find the right guy but I never made those connections, it never felt right. When I met my wife it finally all clicked and I realized that I was attracted to women, not men. We went on and had two children. Both of whom are completely heterosexual. They have been exposed to all facets of the LGBTQ+ community and are better off for it as it has taught them compassion and empathy for all difference types of people. Sometimes we are so caught up in having to be right that we lose the bigger picture that we are all just people. We don’t have to like each other, or what we each do but as humans we should respect each other enough understand that we are all different and just move forward from there.
