Vox Populi

The comment by http://www.wvrecord.com/content/img/f214184/SZ200_dmckinney.jpg
Darrin McKinney, confoundedly, represents the business-bias view that patients, somehow or the other, deserve what they get.

He is not in command of the facts. Yet, organized and aggressive, lobbyists like the American Tort Reform Association churn out position and quotes to the point that their voice dominates the narrative.

How can individuals address this? By supporting, through their own writings (like this blog), supporting the efforts of others, and finding and encouraging court cases like Rebecca Williams Jackson V. MCMC (SCOTUS docket: 11-1272)http://www.supremecourt.gov/Search.aspx?FileName=/docketfiles/11-1272.htm.

Her case, in need of amicus briefs to encourage the court to hear it, presents a national platform to discuss/debate these regional violations of patient's rights.

We need to fight these bills. There is a Senate meeting on Tuesday May 29 in the Boji Tower in Lansing. It is suppose to start at 3 pm. Here is the address: 124 West Allegan Street, Lansing, Michigan.

These are the following bills that will be debated: Senate Bills 1115-1118.

These bills are VERY dangerous for victims of medial malpractice and patients alike. The public needs to go and show its opposition towards these bills. Our voices must be heard. This is a VERY important meeting for individuals in Michigan to attend.
