Doctor Doesn’t Like Baby’s Name, Refuses Treatment

In June of 2012, Mohamed Morsi was elected President of Egypt. In August, he appointed Abdul Fatah al-Sisi as Minister of Defense.

The following summer, “after mass protests against the Islamist leader’s rule,” al-Sisi ousted Morsi. Al-Sisi then became the First Deputy Prime Minister of Egypt.

Not long after the July 2013 military coup, a baby boy was born in a village in Kafr el-Sheikh Governorate. His 30-year-old father, who missed the birth because he was away from home participating in pro-Sisi rallies, decided the baby should be named Al-Sisi.

The coup ended up polarizing the people of Egypt — Sisi supporters vs. Morsi supporters. The country has since been “rocked by near-daily protests, bombings and clashes in which hundreds have died in the worst civil violence in the nation’s modern history.”

In November, 4-month-old Al-Sisi was taken to the hospital with a high fever.

According to his father, the first doctor they saw was a Morsi supporter. This doctor refused to treat the baby because of his name.

A different doctor ultimately treated the baby, and the original doctor was disciplined, but…a patient being refused medical treatment over a name? Very scary stuff…
