Headlines: September 24, 2009

More healthcare reform news today, as we slowly move towards a resolution in this long national discussion. First up is an interesting article that describes Florida Senator Bill Nelson, who is walking a delicate tightrope on reform as he tries to help pass a substantial bill while also protecting Medicare benefits for older Americans.
Also of interest is this study on centrist Democrats. There has been a lot of focus on the few Republicans who are willing to compromise on health care reform, so this is a useful look at the other side of the aisle.
This blog argues that mandates will increase the call of health care.
Perhaps the most exciting news of today is the announcement that there has been a (very qualified) success in creating an AIDS vaccine.
Finally, here is a fascinating article on Assisted Reproduction and the Irish Eighth Amendment from the Hastings Center Report.
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!
