I see I may misunderstood, but mind i chime in with an extreme view here on why your view is not correct in the eyes of the law? consider:Some view it that way, I don't agree, but I'm not for forcing them to bake the cake, and neither should the government force them, it's a personal decision for them to make. Again, no one is entitled to the product of someone else's labor, because to say you are is basically slavery and it doesn't suddenly become ok because you pointed a gun to their head and gave them some money when they complied... as for that second sentence, this is in no way comparable to slavery or miscegentation, which was government discriminating and using religion to justify it, I'm talking about individuals, not the government. As I said, the constitution is there to restrain the government, no one else. In some cases, the refusal may be racist, but being a racist isn't illegal nor is saying racist things. I don't agree with those
Most patients have the final decision on medical care, including the right to refuse treatment. Learn the exceptions and how to use this right.
Exceptions to the Right to Refuse Treatment
In instances of an emergency situation, informed consent may be bypassed if immediate treatment is necessary for the patient's life or safety.1
In addition, there are some patients who do not have the legal ability to say no to treatment. Most of these patients cannot refuse medical treatment, even if it is a non-life-threatening illness or injury.
- Altered mental status: Patients may not have the right to refuse treatment if they have an altered mental status due to alcohol and drugs, brain injury, or psychiatric illness.2
- Children: A parent or guardian cannot refuse life-sustaining treatment or deny medical care from a child. This includes those with religious beliefs that discourage certain medical treatments. Parents cannot invoke their right to religious freedom to refuse treatment for a child.3
- A threat to the community: A patient's refusal of medical treatment cannot pose a threat to the community. Communicable diseases, for instance, would require treatment or isolation to prevent the spread to the general public. A mentally ill patient is another example of a patient that cannot refuse treatment if the person poses a physical threat to himself or others.

Interesting I thought discriminatory practices was basically against the law of everything, no wonder extreme right wing are pushing boundaries, cuz holes like this exists.
Wolf I spend a lot of time on my posts, I need to sleep, I will get back on that anti cake thing, as you may of seen I retracted something in this area though.
