The Injustice of "Social Justice" in Medicine
Beth Haynes, founder of The Black Ribbon Project, wrote an excellent post rebutting the ethics of "social justice" which "the AMA is actively working in conjunction with Association of American Medical Colleges to inculcate [in] young physicians." This "social justice" movement goes hand in hand with efforts to turn doctors into indentured servants - placid appendages of the nascent state health bureaucracy. I hope her efforts, and those of others, continue to awaken the medical profession to the ethics of individualism and the politics of liberty and individual rights.
