Beit Shemesh clinic illegally told patients to "dress modestly"

They removed the notice following a complaint, but it's still something to ponder:
Patients reserving an appointment at a Beit Shemesh clinic through the Leumit Health Services website have been receiving a message asking them to "please dress modestly when visiting the clinic."

The HMO management removed the message following a complaint from the secular Israel Hofshit (Free Israel) movement.

"The Leumit HMO thinks its branches are sacred and is demanding, against the law, that its patients arrive in modest clothing," the movement wrote on its Facebook page. "What is modest clothing? Long sleeves in August? A skirt below or above the knee? Tights? A wig? Perhaps a headdress?

"Even Beit Shemesh is part of the State of Israel, and even in Beit Shemesh no one can tell you how to dress – not at the HMO, not at the grocery store, not at the post office and not in any other place. We are demanding that the Leumit HMO delete the offensive message," Israel Hofshit added.
Fortunately, they did. But this is still another galling example of comparing humans to sex objects in every way, and cannot be allowed to stand unchallenged.
