So...now the Hippocratic Oath can just be ignored?

Are doctors in Arkansas going to ask patients if they're LGBTQ and if the patient answers "Yes" the doc can just refuse treatment?

From the article:

Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson on Friday signed into law legislation allowing doctors to refuse to treat someone because of religious or moral objections, a move opponents have said will give providers broad powers to turn away LGBTQ patients and others.

The measure says health care workers and institutions have the right to not participate in non-emergency treatments that violate their conscience. The new law won’t take effect until late this summer.
