Pro-Life Doctors Group: Pro-Abortion Health Care Bill Hurts Physicians, Patients

The new health care reform legislation put forward by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi not only includes a new program that funds abortions with government money, but would also hurt doctors and patients. That’s the message from a national organization for Christian and pro-life physicians. The 16,000-member Christian Medical Association, the nation’s largest faith-based association of physicians, has problems with the 2,000-page healthcare overhaul bill (HR 3962). The group told today that the measure far exceeds the need for targeted reforms, instead injecting massive government intervention that threatens the patient-physician relationship.
