New bill to give PA doctors protection from lawmakers

WESA, August 19, 2014
Patients trust that their doctors are acting in their best interests, with opinions formed by years of experience, training, and studying. But what if that medical opinion was actually handed down by a politician? A new bill proposed by Pennsylvania State Senator Mike Stack (D- Philadelphia) attempts to address that issue by preventing government bodies from requiring medical personnel to make decisions that are not medically supported. "We need to get politics and ideology out of medicine," Stack said. "Right now, what we've seen is a lot of interfering with the healthcare decisions and choices and our legislation's going to, hopefully, prevent that from happening in the future."
