When our health care is centralized
Politics should never come between a woman and her health care,” Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., declared on the Senate floor one recent afternoon. Senate colleagues as well as media pundits joined the chorus defending “women’s health” from being “politicized.” The implication is that some people are trivializing a critical matter and subordinating it to their self-interest. That’s a serious charge. So it’s worth investigating what these champions of “women’s health” mean when they accuse others of playing politics.
