Headlines: October 9, 2009

It’s a good day to be President Obama (winning the Nobel Peace Prize and all) but the debate over health care reform goes on. These two articles of interest both discuss various parts of the proposed reform. The first discusses the idea that heath care reform would reduce deficits, while the second profiles Iowa Senator Tom Harkin, who says he will continue to fight for a public option in reform no matter what.
This piece, on choosing the best (and most cost-effective) health care plan for you and your family is one that is useful not only for the layman but even for “experts,” if there truly is anyone who can be considered an expert in the complex world of health insurance nowadays.
Finally, the Hastings Center’s Bioethics Forum comes through with another fine piece, this time on the H1N1 virus and pregnant women.
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!
