Health reform is legal, but is it moral? A bioethicist weighs in

Health reform is legal, but is it moral? A bioethicist weighs in

From the piece: "Critics of the Affordable Care Act have convinced America that the Obama plan stinks. The government mandate was their best bogeyman in stirring distrust of health reform. They had placed all their chips on a "shock and awe" strategy of having the Supreme Court blow away Obamacare’s mandate in one gigantic negative decision. That did not happen. 

The critics will now shift gears and start to fight a guerilla war to chip away at the plan. They will complain about cost, government meddling in the doctor-patient relationship and reopen talk of death panels. The only way to meet these criticisms is for the administration and its allies to do what they still have not done — convince the American people, not of the legality of health reform as happened today but of its morality."
