Questioning The Inquisition.Dear Mr. Sullivan,
I am curious about your request for Sarah Palin’s gynaecological records. Would not your accessing them be a breach of confidentiality on the part of those medical practitioners involved?
Also, would not your making these available constitute an invasion of privacy?
As a progressive person, does not this idea abhor you as it does me?
I’m aware that as the potential Vice President there are relevant questions about her health and wellbeing (eg is she likely to have a heart attack due to a history of heart disease in her family?). However, demanding access to obstetric reports is surely not required when we have plenty of pictures on the internet available showing her pregnant.
I guess it would not be unreasonable to expect that you would request Barack Obama make his birth certificate available to the public. After all, there are many people casting doubt upon his status as a citizen and whether he fulfils the requirements with respect to being a Presidential Candidate.
Cheers and kind regards, and hoping to hear from you,
nb I have a confidentiality policy with respect to correspondence. If you would prefer that I keep this email private, please let me know within 7 days. I am more than happy to oblige. After 7 days, I may post it on my blog.
thanks to Tim Blair for pointing this one out. Another post by Mr Sullivan here.
