ACOG nondiscrimination clause should be amended


 

WHY WE MUST MAKE A STRONGER COMMITMENT TO LESBIAN FAMILY HEALTH KATHERINE A. O’HANLAN, MD (ANALYSIS & COMMENTARY, NOVEMBER 2009)

I strongly support the statements of Dr. O’Hanlan. In particular, I agree with the demand that the ACOG Code of Professional Ethics be amended to include sexual orientation and gender identity in its nondiscrimination clause. In this way, it must unambiguously prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation.
