AMA’s John Nelson compares barring gay students group to suspending rapists
John Nelson, president of the American Medical Association, says New York Medical College’s decision to ban a gay students group from campus is an effort to uphold its standards. He likened it to Brigham Young University’s decisions to ban Coca-Cola from campus and to suspend four athletes accused of raping a 17-year-old girl. Yeah, it’s just like that. Nelson said doctors should treat gays “with dignity, with respect and with absolute confidentiality” and said the AMA would be concerned if New York Medical College were graduating students “with clinical biases that might affect the way they practice medicine.” But he added he has no reason “to believe that that’s the case.” We do.
