A doctor in Michigan is facing criticism after she refused to treat the baby of a same-sex couple. Krista and Jami Contreras wed in Vermont in 2012. In October they welcomed their first child, a baby girl they named Bay Windsor Contreras. Before the baby was born, they had a meeting with Dr. Vesna Roi at Eastlake Pediatrics in Roseville. Dr. Roi was recommended to them by their midwife, and the couple seemed pleased after meeting her. But according to KTVU, when the couple went to their first¬†scheduled appointment for¬†their newborn baby in October, they were surprised to discover Dr. Roi did not want to see them. They were greeted by another doctor because Dr. Roi had decided she couldn’t treat the baby after praying about it.

Bolduc was asked about the story¬†Tuesday¬†at the National Assembly. He refused to comment on the specific case, but said the practice of strip-searching students is within the rules. “There¬†are reasons why staff may have to search students, but what’s important is that they respect the law and the framework and that it’s done in a respectful fashion.”
