Hippo Laws

I'm really saddened that repealing the Hippo Laws is being discussed frequently in these debates. Confidentiality is essential for mentally sick people the even consider seeking help for their problems. If they know they can be ratted out to authorities for all kinds of crap they won't.

I just think it's crap to even consider making health-professionals informers of the state in this manner, since it undoubtly would harm their ability to do what they ought to: care for peoples health.
