A nurses union is launching in Holland today a campaign "against demands for sexual services by patients who claim it should be part of their standard care," reports Reuters.
"The union said in a statement Thursday that the campaign follows a complaint it had received in the last week from a 24-year-old woman who said a 42-year-old disabled man asked her to provide sexual services as part of his care at home," according to Reuters.
The young woman reportedly saw "some of the man's other nurses offering him sexual gratification, the union said. When she refused to do the same," Reuters continues, "he tried to dismiss her on the grounds that she was unfit to provide care."
The woman is, of course, in the right. But note, secularist thoughtforms would undermine her choice to maintain her dignity and protect her body, as every human being has a right to do, having been endowed by our Creator "with certain unalienable rights."
Secularists, however, could ask any number of questions. For example:
* "What, you're ashamed of your body?"
* "What, you think sex is dirty?" Or
* "Why do you insist on crossing the line and imposing your personal values onto what clearly is a public, professional, and in this case, scientific sphere of life?"
What needs dismissing is not this young woman, but secularism, which is a woefully inadequate and ungratifying guide to the challenges of life.
