KOKH FOX 25 :: Top Stories - Law Allows Doctors to Lie

There's something very perverse about this law. The doctor-patient relationship becomes entirely meaningless once doctors engage in deception to promote their own personal agendas. At this point, women in Oklahoma would probably be well-advised to seek second opinions for even the most routine ob/gyn exam.

It's also worth mentioning that although an idiotic law like that would probably have never come up had OK had Democratic majorities in the state legislature, there were plenty of Dems who were more than willing to go along with this Brad Henry's veto became pretty meaningless this year when it came to bills of this sort. This is bad news not only for women and our perception of the medical profession's legitimacy, but it will waste plenty of tax dollars while it ends up going through legal battles in the courts.
