The US Supreme Court has ruled and now it’s time to determine what’s next for reforming America’s healthcare system.
In a statement, John Carney, president and CEO of the Center for Practical Bioethics, said the Court’s decision only protects the initial phase of healthcare reform, and much work remains to create a healthcare system that is just, ethical, fair and humane.
Carney says in coming weeks the Center will promote dialogue on the ethics of healthcare reform as we move past the Supreme Court ruling.
