However, some streams of Judaism prohibit using electronics on the Sabbath, so you are demanding that adherents of them give up Shabbat and holy day services altogether, or surrender other civil rights.

False claim. Their *choice* to not use electronics is a just that--a choice. They CHOOSE to live where they are not able to get together easily in small groups. They are, and always have been, aware of these limitations because they CHOSE them. Choices have consequences. The fact their CHOICES restrict their coming together as many small groups but only as a single large group means they face dying in large numbers. Basically, they are CHOOSING suicide. Which is NOT approved by God. Either way, they violate God's law *as they see it*. Be separate and LIVE? Or be together and DIE? We already know the answer to that question. God permits medical assistance/medical care to those who need it--even on Shabbat. Why? The rationale is simple: It is better to miss Shabbat a time or few and then recover, when you will be able to celebrate many more Shabbats.

Thus, the "strict" believers would not permit medical care on Shabbat because doing ANY work on that day would be *strictly* prohibited. They would die off VERY quickly as a result of their CHOICE.
