The ethics of health care reform

The lede:

Chicago — A panel appointed by President Bush that met here in June appears set to endorse some form of societal obligation to provide health care access to all.

The meeting was part of the President’s Council on Bioethics initiative examining the ethical underpinnings of approaches to reforming the nation’s health system and covering the estimated 47 million uninsured Americans. A report is likely to be issued after the November election.

The whole shebang.
