Does this mean that all medical procedures performed on men and woman have to be done by a doctor with admitting privileges to a hospital within 30 miles of where the procedure is performed? If no, why not?
I eagerly await the Legislature dictating where and when I can get my prostrate exam, colonoscopy, teeth cleaned and eyes examined. Let’s not forget blood testing, heart exams and check-ups for skin cancer.
If your medical professional doesn’t meet the new rules, you may want to schedule your medical appointments and surgery with your local legislator. Men, these Republicans think they know what is best for women’s health, so I wouldn’t be too worried about a few incisions here and there. Make sure, however, that you tell them you’re a man.
