Why isn't this doctor fired. This is a clear violation of the Hippocratic oath.... Isn't it?

That's if this Doctor even took the Hippocratic oath....it isn't obligatory.

To a cretin like the Doctor at the centre of this debacle the following would be blasphemy...

I swear by Apollo the Physician and Asclepius and Hygieia and Panaceia and all the gods, and goddesses, making them my witnesses, that I will fulfill according to my ability and judgment this oath and this covenant:

There are many alternatives to the Hippocratic oath......whatever the oath she took, she is bound to be in breach of it. So much for having that virtuous Christian conscience built upon the morality gleaned from their-not-so-good book.....religious moral principles, I've shit'em.
