Headlines: July 22, 2009
by Ted Hutchinson, ASLME Publications Director
Today’s headlines continue to focus on the Obama administration’s efforts to pass meaningful health care reform. The New York Times calls today one of the “defining moments” of Obama’s young presidency as he prepares to address the nation.
Here is a related piece on the economics of health care reform, and on the difficulties inherent in selling the concept to average voters.
Finally, here is an interesting op-ed article on health care reform, and how the language we use to discuss it can be important.
There are also a few unrelated headlines worth pursuing, including this op-ed from London on Swine Flu vaccinations and this bit of news from California on taxing medical marijuana, a little bit of news that has gathered lots of media attention.
As always, I also want to remind readers that I am always looking for interesting headlines related to Law, Medicine, and Ethics. If you have a tip, please feel free to leave it in the comment section or email me at email@example.com.
Hope you all have a good day!
