Christian Pediatrician Won’t Treat Baby Girl Whose Parents Are Lesbians
Would Jesus have turned them away from getting their child medical care?
[su_center_ad]Krista and Jami Contreras were married in Vermont in 2012 and they welcomed Bay Windsor Contreras into the world two years later. Last September, the expectant mothers were referred to Dr. Vesna Roi at Eastlake Pediatrics in Roseville, Michigan, by the couple’s midwife.
When the baby was born, they went to see Roi, but instead, another doctor greeted them.
“The first thing Dr. Karam said was ‘I’ll be your doctor, I’ll be seeing you today because Dr. Roi decided this morning that she prayed on it and she won’t be able to care for Bay,” Jami said.
“Dr. Karam told us she didn’t even come to the office that morning because she didn’t want to see us.”
“It was embarrassing, it was humiliating and here we are, new parents trying to protect her,” Jami said. “And we know this happens in the world and we’re completely prepared for this to happen other places. But not at our six-day-old’s wellness appointment.”[su_csky_ad]
