At Our Bodies Our Blog: Research Priorities, and More BS Posturing on Women’s Health for Political Gain

July 2, 2009

Yesterday at Our Bodies Our Blog, I posted about the list of priorities for comparative effectiveness research compiled in an Institute of Medicine report as part of the process for allocating funds for this research from the stimulus package. It’s really more interesting than that sentence makes it sound. Several women’s health and childbirth-related topics made the list. Check it out.

Christine has something more urgent today, Trading Women’s Health for Votes: Legislators Call for Excluding Abortion Services from Government Health Plan. Apparently

“Nineteen House members sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stating that they will not vote for health care reform legislation ‘unless it explicitly excludes abortion funding from the scope of any government-defined or subsidized health insurance plan.’

Go see C’s post for more details. For my fellow Tennesseans, one of them was Lincoln Davis.
