I don't know if I can cope with Virginia much longer...

So I got recommendations from my doctor for an OBGYN to refill my birth control. He gave me the names of two doctors who are near my apartment. The first one is on my insurance company's list of approved doctors (second one isn't), so I called her office. Here's how the conversation went...

Receptionist: Hello?
Me: Hi. I was wondering if Dr. Anderson is accepting new patients.
Receptionist: What do you need an appointment for?
Me: I need to get an annual exam and also to refill my birth control.
Receptionist: Oh, right, we're a pro-life clinic and we don't prescribe birth control so we wouldn't be able to help you with that.

Me: Wha..... um...... uh..... okaaaaaaaaaaaaay...... mmmmmm .... hahaha .... I guess, nevermind then.

WOW! That's crazy!

That's crazy!!!! It's not like you'd be killing a child. Instead, you'd be preventing the creation of one.

Good thing they aren't accepting new patients. Looks like this office is a bit confused.

Good luck, and maybe your new call will go much smoother :)

too weird for words...............

yeah. Some folks think that preventing a fertilized egg from attaching to the uterine lining (which is what BC does) is abortion or murder too.

I'm impressed you found a place like that in Fairfax. I thought NoVa was pretty forward thinking...
