This brief responds to the Christian and Dental Medical Associations claims that it is acceptable for physicians to deny care on the basis of their religious beliefs. A physician's decision to selectively deny care due to a patient's sexual orientation violates a patient's civil rights and is therefore unlawful despite his or her religious convictions.
