Social conservative Linda Harvey on Tuesday warned parents to steer their children away from gay doctors.

Harvey is the founder of the Columbus, Ohio-based Mission America and is a frequent contributor to the conservative website, which is run by Joseph Farah.

“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?” Harvey said on her radio broadcast before railing against a group of openly gay and lesbian medical professionals.

“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, their involvement with your child during a hospital stay is sure to be an influence.”

“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. (The audio is embedded in the right panel of this page.)
