Reminding the owner’s wife such behavior might be illegal, Miss C was told that the use medical records were approved by the patients for the anti-gay marriage referendum. Furthermore, she was dismissed on September 28, threatened by the clinic owner’s wife if she dared to reveal the whole thing, the entire Chinese medicine community would know “what kind of person she is.”
