    Lovely that they’re using the COVID deaths of service workers as the excuse to repeal child labor laws.

    No better way to "protect the children" than to put them back to work in factories.

    We don't live in a technocracy (though it's headed that way). So anyone that votes does have a say in the law. Based on your logic, society should not have punished or stopped Larry Nasser from molesting those gymnists because he's a medical doctor.

    I didn't realize Larry Nasser was only using medical procedures on those kids with the full approval of their parents.

    Nope, I'm pretty sure he was raping kids.

    And him being a doctor and claiming it was a medical treatment was not an excuse was it?

    You know, as someone who actually was groomed and raped by a church leader as a kid I find it a little bit distasteful how eagerly you wield the threat of child rape as some sort of moral cudgel. Maybe obsessing on transition as some sort of sinful act leads to fantasizing about children being raped by doctors or their parents? Such a weird thing to fixate on.

    Then maybe you should be understanding of the fact that just as religion is no excuse to cover up for abuse, neither is medical licsense. I had to destroy that utterly stupid argument.

    But I know, you assume that I'm religious and you could "get me" with that comment, but I'm not, so your effort was wasted.

    I’m not here to “get you”. No quantity of sympathy, patience, or logic provided on my part would sway you.

    And what medical board agreed with him? That's right. No legitimate medical board considers rape a medical procedure.

    You're really reaching here. Like, I'm afraid you might dislocate something.

    Medical boards approved lobotomies too, that's no argument. This isn't really difficult. If a 15 year old goes to a doctor and wants to be sterilized it shouldn't be legal, no matter how many doctors can be found that are willing to perform it. And there's a really weird cult-like fervor behind this. You lefties refuse to acknowledge the victims because you're so desparate for your tribe to be right.

    I don't have a tribe.
    Laws have allowed far worse than lobotomies. They've allowed actual imprisonment, torture, and murder of humans.

    Things change. Nothing you can say will make the law a better judge of medical necessity than trained medical professionals.

    Good. So just because something is legal doesn't mean it's ok, just as the fact that doctors do something doesn't make it ok.

    You can't listen to the victims who are speaking out and honestly say these procedures are "medical necessities". In fact, I don't know how you can make such a statement with a functioning brain. Since when did blocking puberty become a "medical necessity". You deluded by cult-like thinking whether you realize it or not.
