The Cream of the Crop

February 9, 2009 | 20 Comments

One of America’s finest obstetrician/gynecologists, Dr. Pierre Jean-Jacque Renelique, followed a multi-generation family tradition in fulfilling his life-long quest to become a physician. Although he could have pursued any specialty at his pick of this country’s top teaching facilities, he decided that a particular type of family planning surgery was his calling. Like most of the highly-qualified doctors who populate that field, his only wish was to serve the poorest among us. In this case, himself: “I had to do it to survive.”

Regrettably, some small-minded Florida state officials are now impeding Dr. Renelique’s charitable endeavors over the trivial matter of some misplaced tissue. In one sense, however, I am relieved. Because originally, the medical board had imposed a most demeaning restriction on his license: they required a second physician to be present when he was plying his craft. The indignity! The waste of scarce medical resources! Every sensible person knows that men of such superb skill and judgment as Dr. Renelique could never need the assistance of some lesser being in determining The Right Thing to Do. Indeed, the wisest man in America has spoken on this very issue. Ladies and Gentlemen, The President of the United States!

    If the President said what he said I don’t think he really meant it. He meant something else. He didn’t really vote against BAIPA 4 times. He just didn’t vote in favor of it. 4 times. He is as good as his word. Change.

    Well, the question becomes “how many doctors are enough?” – if one doctor is not enough, are two? Maybe there should be four? A committee?

    If you actually read what he says, he says that he expects doctors to “do the right thing” (to paraphrase) – if doctors are not doing the right thing, then that is a problem with the doctors and/or the system, not with the president’s views on them.

    God forbid we expect the LEADER of our country to “do the right thing”…crazy talk!

    Yep, this is EXACTLY what Obama said should happen in these cases. Allowing living, breathing babies to receive medical care after they survive abortion “burdens” the mother and doctor, so just stuff ‘em a bag and let them suffocate to death. Hey, it’s just a worthless clump of cells anyway, so who cares!

    :(

    Yes, Obama has said a number of things that show his true colors…this and the fact that babies are a punishment…

    Can’t wait to see if Sebelius becomes secretary of heatlth! His administration is starting to look like something out of a Stephen King novel.

    and then of course there is our favorite nightmare fodder…Tiller!

    Hey, what is the blog address? Are these the “posters” about Obama that were so funny? If that’s what you’re talking about, I loved the one about “don’t forget to feed your pets before you kill your baby”.
    Sorry if I’m off track…you guys just reminded me of that “ad”.

    Yes, Carla, picking carrots! Hilarious.

    Kathy,

    He was a commenter on Jill’s (still is). I used to moderate that site, Carla still does.

    Cranky Catholic would post pictures he did in Photo shop every once in a while…they were hilarious. He did the one I linked to of Tiller as the Wicked Witch along with these:

    This is one that he “fixed” where a guy was pulling up hundreds of white crosses at the Planned Parenthood clinic in Aurora, IL

    Daniel, it’s not unusual to ask for a second opinion. In a case such as a baby surviving an abortion, the first doctor has already screwed up — he made the judgment call that this baby was too small, weak, young, immature, whatever to survive the abortion process. If the baby is born alive, that means that Doctor #1, the abortion doctor, made a misjudgment in his area of expertise — abortion. Are we then supposed to trust his judgment in an area outside his expertise — neonatology?

    Basically Obama was saying that a baby who survives an abortion attempt is, at most, entitled to a second look from the guy who tried to kill her in the first place, and who screwed up at that. Why is that good enough?

    MK,
    Thanks for the links. I didn’t realize that Crazy Catholic was the name of the blogger.
    I will check it out!

    You’re welcome Kathy…but it’s Cranky, not Crazy.

    His name fit him too. He’d come on and wipe up the floor with everyone then disappear only to come back weeks later, rinse and repeat. He took no prisoners. But always left you laughing…
