It's not false; the surgeon doesn't have to provide his service. I don't think he is justified to do so.

What do you say to those that argue that the right of an individual to refuse offering service/goods can collapse into a community refusing likewise? And if it does collapse into such a situation, how else can we remedy it other than legislating individuals?
I'm not concerned, it's not just the type of service or good - it's the entire story. It's frivolous.

I say it's a fair argument; I say legislate away well before any sign of a collapse.

Does this story signal a collapse?
