Linda Harvey urges parents to refuse care for their children from gay doctors

By Brian Tashman
Monday, October 24, 2011

Linda Harvey of Mission America has a message for parents: don’t let your child be treated by a gay or lesbian doctor or nurse.

On her radio show last week, Harvey said that parents should prohibit gay and lesbian health care employees from attending to their children because their sexual orientation is “erroneously influential to children.”

Linda Harvey

“There are a few homosexual doctors treating kids, there are far more nurses, LPNs, technicians and other health care workers in these lifestyles,” Harvey contends. “Should your child ever be hospitalized, you do not want your child treated or cared for by one of these members of the Children’s Hospital gay employees group.”

“How do you feel about open homosexuals tending to your child in a health care setting? Do you think these folks provide good role modeling at a time when your child is very vulnerable? I was thinking about this recently when I heard that Children’s Hospital in Columbus has a homosexual employees group called NCHARGE, which stands for Nationwide Children’s Hospital’s Advocates Representing Gay Employees. The meeting minutes of this groups reveal that they participated in last June’s gay pride parade, that they participated in a health expo on adolescent health this summer and that they’re concerned about same-sex partner benefits. They’re also planning to be identified with rainbow lapel pins.

“But let’s say your eleven year-old has broken her leg rather badly and needs to be in the hospital a few days, which would you prefer: a nurse who’s proud of her lesbianism, who has rainbow identifiers on her work clothing, or a nurse who does not?

“I would like to suggest that parents think long and hard about this. If you want your children to admire people who proclaim a homosexual lifestyle, they’re involvement with your child during a hospital stay is sure to be an influence.

“And let me be clear that folks involved in these behaviors can be certainly competent workers but they are tacking on to their workplace identity one that is highly offensive to many people and can be erroneously influential to children who won’t, or shouldn’t, see the whole picture of how this behavior really manifests itself.

“Here’s what parents can do: select your pediatrician very carefully, first of all. There are a few homosexual doctors treating kids, there are far more nurses, LPNs, technicians and other health care workers in these lifestyles so you may want to consider writing a letter that you file with your pediatrician that should your child ever be hospitalized, you do not want your child to be treated or cared for by one of these members of the Children’s Hospital gay employees group except in the case of an emergency situation.

“But for routine in-hospital care where contact with your child would be required, your values should be respected.”

  3. Stupid. Doctors and nurses are professionals, their sexual orientation stays out of the office so it doesn’t change a thing.

  14. I’m sorry, but I don’t know what being gay has to do with your child’s health?! It’s not a disease…your kids can’t catch it!

  15. She needs to be very careful. She never knows if she’ll end up in the hospital and a gay doctor might have her life in their hands.

    Posted on Monday, October 24, 2011 at 9:51pm
  16. Makes me so angry, as long as the child is in good care and proper care is being provided it should not matter! I hope she gets ill and has a gay person taking care of her!!! that’s okay Linda your unjustifiable judgement just makes us stronger, more proud people!

    Posted on Monday, October 24, 2011 at 9:51pm
  17. What? I could imagine it now some poor child on an operating table the doctor walks in… I’m sorry sir what is your sexual preference? Oh I don’t want you operating on my child…. SERIOUSLY?

  19. I cannot believe the IGNORANCE of some people! This isn’t the 19th century! WHAT is wrong with people? I would much rather be cared for by these gay & lesbian doctors & nurses than someone SO ignorant!!!Oh…this makes me SO mad!!!

    Posted on Monday, October 24, 2011 at 9:52pm
  20. Except in case of emergency? Well, lady, a life and death moment is no time to lay down your bigotry… If you truly believed these people to be genuinely harmful, I’d think you’d rather let your child die than be treated By a member of the LGBT community.

    Posted on Monday, October 24, 2011 at 9:53pm
  21. Looks like we better hide or we might catch the gay bug….I better have a str8 dr examine me next time I may become straight

  27. Really? Straight couples are the ones having gay kids, and most pedophiles are also heterosexual. Gay people don’t pimp out young girls, and sell them into slavery. Gays OBGYN’s don’t abuse their female patients…… the list goes on. You should be afraid your husband is online right now… wake up.

    Posted on Monday, October 24, 2011 at 9:55pm
  32. Oh, of all the idiotic….I really hate this “I don’t want to confuse my kids” argument. Seeing a woman with a rainbow pin isn’t going to make your kid want to go have anal sex. Shut the hell up. The sooner we start teaching kids from an early age that having a homosexual identity is OKAY and commonplace, there will never be tolerance, much less acceptance, which is what we should really be trying for.

  33. i can promise you if someone’s child is sick and/or dying, THEY AINT GONNA GIVE A FLYIN FUCK if the doctor or nurses are gay! god someone smack that dumb bitch

  37. boooooooooooo

    Posted on Monday, October 24, 2011 at 9:58pm
  38. So if your child got hit by a car, was dying, and needed emergency surgery… you would deny them that because the surgeon was gay? (How you’d even know is another question.. and id you didn’t and your child lives, wtf is the big deal?)

  53. If your child is in pain, you’re probably not going to give a flying fuck about the person’s sexual orientation — that is, if you’re a good parent, and not a NUTCASE LIKE LINDA HARVEY

    Posted on Monday, October 24, 2011 at 10:08pm
  54. If having to know the preference of a dr is soooooo important that she needs to question it while a child is in need, really does she even care about the kids? Cuz the way I was brought up was that when a child needs you, you act instantly to provide. Not question to threaten.

    Posted on Monday, October 24, 2011 at 10:09pm
  55. WOW, this is frickin unreal.
    What would she do if she or a child of her’s needed emergency medical care, would she let them die before being treated….

    Posted on Monday, October 24, 2011 at 10:09pm
  56. If someone allowed their child to die because the doctor was gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender/pansexual etc. I would push for child neglect charges.

  57. What a nut bucket!

    Posted on Monday, October 24, 2011 at 10:10pm
  58. ok, so multiple things, 1. how are you the parent going to know if your doctor is part of the LGBTQ community? and 2. normally, those in such a postion dont normally yell over a mega phone their orentation, they keep thier personal lives and professional lives separate. 3. if your children are part of the LGBTQ community that is how they were born, to me it seems like you as a parent are trying to blame someone because you cannot accept the fact your child is part of a community which i must say is more accepting and loving than some other communities i’ve known. There is no such thing as an influenced gay, we are born and this is who we are. AND PARENTS, think about it, if your child had a life threatening diease and needed immediate medical care, and the best doctor around to treat the diease is gay would you really care?? its a choice between going to an amazingly smart and talented gay doctor and saving your child’s life, or risk their death because of something you cannot accept.

Thankyou Vera Carter, for your echo comment , because it just became handy.

  76. As a 25+ year Paramedic Ive been asked a million questions by my patients: Am I going to die? Will I get better? What’s wrong with me? Can you help me? Can you stop the pain? Does anybody care about me?

    A million questions, Mrs. Harvey…some that have no answer. Some that have a very hard answer. I’ve literally shed blood, sweat and tears for my profession, for my patients. I’ve been attacked, cursed, slapped, kicked, punched, shot at, cut, spat on, bled on, pissed on, shit on, puked on, cried on, held onto for dear life, begged, appreciated, thanked, asked on a date, saved by Jesus, Napolean, and the Great Poobah. I have brought new lives into this world. I have held the hand and prayed with those leaving this world. I have gone home after a 24 hour shift with no sleep, one meal, and collapsed into the arms of my partner sobbing because of what I’ve seen and had to do.

    And I know honor and gratitude Mrs. Harvey. 5 rows of commendation bars for doing what I love well and truly. Accolades. Medals. But a 5 year old shyly coming to say thank you 3 months after a horrific wreck…trade them all fir that. Ive known joy and sorrow that you never will. More, I’ve been honored to serve. It has been the greatest gift. Ive been asked how it feels to save a life, to lose a life…yes Mrs Harvey, a million questions.

    But there’s one question in over 25 years Ive never been asked: “What’s your sexual orientation?” LGBT folks are over-represented in the helping professions. There are many factors and reasons for that, not the least of which is that we’ve all in one way or another faced adversity so very much greater than you and won. You’re an intentionally awful person ma’am. So long as you continue to choose hate, you will have no peace. To hijack a line from The Help: Arent you tired Mrs. Harvey? Arent you tired…?

  86. I read this article this morning with a sickness growing in my stomach. As a person in the medical profession my patients love me for my ability to provide quality health care to them. None of them care about my personal life or who I lay with at the end of my shift. I was saddened by this woman’s ignorance.

  93. About all this poor misguided soul has managed to do it point out that there are gay doctors, nurses, LPNs, CNAs, and etc. out there saving children’s lives–and she wants to pretend they’re not there. She’s clearly pointed out her fear that children will realized lgbtq people are just that–people. People who are out there doing everything other people do, the same way other people do them. She’s successfully pointed out that lgbtq folks are just folks. Oh, and she’s pointed out how silly she can be. Doesn’t she realize that when she sticks her head in the sand, her butt is up there in the air waiting to be kicked?

IT DOES NOT MATTER BLACK OR WHITE, GAY OR NOT A DOCTOR IS A DOCTOR THEN GO TO CHINA OR RUSSIA OR SOME OTHER COUNTRY AND SEE WHAT DOCTOR YOU GET, I HOPE THAT SHE DOES NOT GET SICK LIKE A EMERGENCY SHE WOULD HAVE TO TAKE WHAT DOCTOR IS WORKING AT THE TIME.

Ok lady you’re kids gonna die cause you don’t want the queer and only qualified doctor to care for them what did you watch walking dead on Sunday and decide that in a zombie epidemic vets aren’t good enough. Queers make great all around people and I love the ones that deserve to be loved same goes for the straight peeps.

  116. I hope she gets hurt or has a major illness sometime soon. Then every LGBT person working in the hospital could refuse to care for her. Though I doubt it would happen since most gay people have compassion for others, that’s why they are in the health care field. What a twisted bitch!

  119. Linda Harvey continues to amaze me with her ignorance. I guess she thinks that I’m a lesbian now because I went to the doctor’s office and the nurse was a lesbian and somehow I magically found that out and thought, “Wow, I want to be just like her, so I should become a lesbian.” Puh-lease.

  120. There I was all of 7 with a compound fracture of my femur. I was in shock from the pain. I don’t remembered much not the name of any nurse or doctor. Except nurse julie …. I remember her because she had a rainbow pin on her coat. It was that moment I realized I wanted to be gay. So after three surgeries and seeing 50 or so different staff members I was discharged 2 weeks later and immediately went on the internet to find out everything about the gays and how to join.

  121. I couldn’t have said it any better, Tammy Musgrove! Thanks for all you do. Linda Harvey is an idiot.

  124. Ignorance is rude.

    Posted on Tuesday, October 25, 2011 at 6:13am
  125. I don’t know what she’s worried about since according to her a few months ago, we don’t exist anyway. Lol

    Posted on Tuesday, October 25, 2011 at 6:19am
  126. Next time I get sick with asthma and have to have emergency treatment, I’m going to ask the Dr or nurse’s sexual orientation? Yeah, right!

    Posted on Tuesday, October 25, 2011 at 6:22am
  127. I think that people like her should be ran out of town with pitch forks. It is going to be hilarious when one of her kids turns out gay or lesbian. What a fowl and awful view to have of other human beings. She needs to see a therapist.

  129. STFU, I hope you die in a fire.

    Posted on Tuesday, October 25, 2011 at 7:06am
  130. If my childs well being is at stake, I don’t care if the doctor is black, white, polka dotted, gay,straight, or transgender…. they are a DOCTOR first.

    Posted on Tuesday, October 25, 2011 at 7:23am
  131. keep the fear alive!

    Posted on Tuesday, October 25, 2011 at 7:38am
  132. Omg, really? That’s ridiculous. What does their sexual orientation have to do with anything? They could be a smart doctor or nurse. -_-

    Posted on Tuesday, October 25, 2011 at 7:47am

    Posted on Tuesday, October 25, 2011 at 8:08am
  134. BITCH!

    Posted on Tuesday, October 25, 2011 at 8:22am
  135. Get a life Linda Harvy, or stay back n the 1600′s.

    Posted on Tuesday, October 25, 2011 at 9:03am
  136. What !? I guess she’s going to tell parents to not take their kid to see any doctor and just pray that they get better.

    Posted on Tuesday, October 25, 2011 at 9:09am
  137. Maybe she should be worried about all those parents who can’t afford a doctor at all.

    Posted on Tuesday, October 25, 2011 at 9:36am
  138. Who are her advertisers?

    Posted on Tuesday, October 25, 2011 at 9:38am
  139. I wonder what the kids think about this.

    Posted on Tuesday, October 25, 2011 at 9:48am
  140. Personally, I don’t care whether the doctor treating my child is gay, lesbian, transexual or even a zombie nazi.
    As long as they’re a good doctor and can help save my child’s life, then that’s all I care about.
    I’d like to ask her this question…
    Would she rather have her child treated by a lesbian who’s a good doctor, or a heterosexual who’s a bad doctor?
    She obviously doesn’t care about her children.

    Posted on Tuesday, October 25, 2011 at 10:18am
  141. Well Linda Harvey better watch out for the mail man or mail woman, cashiers, police men and women etc etc etc!

    Posted on Tuesday, October 25, 2011 at 12:14pm
  142. MAYBE SHE SHOULD TAKE A WALK DOWN THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD BECAUSE SHE’S ONE FUCKED UP SCARECROW WHO NEEDS A BRAIN!!!!

    Posted on Tuesday, October 25, 2011 at 12:51pm
  143. I do partially understand Harvey’s arguments if I’m honest. I’m gay myself and dont understand the problem of having your kid treated by a gay doctor/nurse. What I do understand though is why she finds it strange that the gay personnel of Columbus’ Children’s Hostpital feels the need to wear (if that’s true) rainbow identifiers. At the moment you start working you’re not a gay person, you are a nurse who happens to be gay, but that fact is completely irrelevant to your patient. Furthermore Harvey never directly says that gay people shouldnt perform jobs in the healthcare system, but that she based on personal believes would prefer her children not to be treated by them. However backward I might find that, I do think it’s her right to think the way she does.

  144. it looks like they own gay sexual but does not dare to say: p

    Posted on Wednesday, October 26, 2011 at 4:12am
  145. So if ure severly sick and u go to a doctor that has the medical knowledge to help u but is gay, u tell him ‘fuck u! Ure gay and I don’t want to b treated by u!’…seriously lady, that sounds stupid, but hey, if u die because u refused medical treatment because of orientation, don’t think ure gonna b morned for long

    Posted on Wednesday, October 26, 2011 at 8:04am
  146. yup but its ok to let your children around catholic priest who are know to molest children.

    this woman has a rude awakening if she thinks she’ll get into heaven with such outright hatred.

    Posted on Wednesday, October 26, 2011 at 1:10pm
  147. lmao ignorance is so entertaining.. i am positive she would not deny nor pay attention to the persons rainbow pin or orientation in a real life or death situation when it involves her loved ones or herself.. its okay lady live with your seed of hate we will be happy for you :) everyone is entitled to their own opinion.. when it comes to someones livelihood a professional status it is measured on their work performance, public relations, and ethics.. ure failing woman at all of the above.. keep your home opinions at home and ur professional ones professional

    Posted on Wednesday, October 26, 2011 at 2:46pm
  148. How does she proprose discovering the sexual orientation of ones physician? Actually, I don’t want to know. I mean, do we assume the doctor is gay if he/she finds Miss Linda unattractive? Hell, look at her. Can’t imagine anybody thinking she was attractive … which may explain her look of friendly delight. Dipshit.

    Posted on Wednesday, October 26, 2011 at 8:39pm
  149. yes thankfully everybody her on this site is a lot more accepting towards opinions/believes/lifestyles than miss harvey. because without all your enormously educated replies on this article the world would have been lost >_>”

  150. i lol’d again at this A-class troll.
    In her statement, If you replace homosexuals with christians, and rainbows with crosses, it’s actually pretty hilarious.

  151. She deserves to die, end of story, she isnt the worth the breath she breathes
