Terry Jeffrey on health care records. From Townhall
Should doctors and hospitals be required by the federal government to maintain a national network of electronic health records for every individual in America that indicates, for example, whether that individual has had an abortion, a sexually transmitted disease, a mental illness or a drug problem?
Such a system has already been mandated by the stimulus law enacted in February, and politicians in Washington, D.C., would now prefer not to answer straightforward questions about it. . .
If Obama's health care plan is enacted, not only will the government subsidize the health care of Americans making up to 400 percent of the poverty level, it will also know what health care Americans have gotten and are getting.
Liberals who used a bogus "right to privacy" to violate the right to life of unborn children now seek to annihilate the real right to privacy of everyone in their quest to socialize medicine.http://townhall.com/columnists/TerryJeffrey/2009/09/30/should_government_have_e-record_of_every_woman_whos_had_an_abortion?page=full&comments=true
