I think one sign of a professional in situation such as medical care is if clients can't tell the political or personal views of the professional they have hired. (The same goes for a great comic or political cartoonist as well. There is plenty to joke about on both sides of the aisle and a good comic or political cartoonist would not leave half the potential material on the table simply because it might get laughs at the expense of "his team".)
Firearm safety ought to be handled by pediatricians in the same breath as storing household chemicals and medications, crib safety, stair safety, bath tub safety, electrical outlet safety, flat panel TV safety, bookcase and chest-of-drawer safety, etc. New parents ought to get some very basic printed info about the age at which infants get mobile and before which homes need to be properly "child proofed." Potentially dangerous stuff needs to be kept very much out of reach. Heavy items need to be secured so kids can't pull them over on themselves.
On the other side of the aisle, there are risks with any medical procedure and the risks of elective abortion ought to be provided in about the same way that risks of elective cosmetic surgery are handled. Both types of procedures have both physical and emotional risks well documented. Any doctor who cannot provide this information in a low-key, non-judgmental manner (perhaps because of his own religious beliefs) should refrain from providing anything more than a referral to a doctor who is qualified and willing to provide the appropriate patient counseling for fully informed consent.
Drug use--including tobacco, alcohol, prescription drugs, and illicit recreational drugs--are all legit medical issues that ought to be discussed as medical issues. Similarly, patient religious beliefs/traditions form a crucial part of patients' moral and life views and thus are an important part of patient care, especially when dealing with chronic or terminal issues. Doctors need to be willing and able to respect these beliefs and traditions regardless of their personal views on such matters.
In cases where doctors are unable to provide the appropriate level of care to specific patients due to irreconcilable differences between doctor and patient values (eg the Christian marriage counselor who cannot in good conscience provide counsel for a homosexual couple to stay together), a referral to another qualified provider needs to be permitted without any negative repercussions to the doctor. Make it safe and easy for doctors to make referrals when their own views inhibit their ability to provide optimum care in any particular case and you've make it more likely the patient gets the best care possible. An honest referral is far better than a doctor pretending to be something he isn't.
