Crossing borders for fertility treatments - Health - Pregnancy - BabyQuest | NBC News
In August of 2005, Shauna Anderson treated herself to a vacation of sorts. Three weeks in Cape Town, South Africa, more than 10,000 miles from her home just outside Seattle, for a little respite, a safari — and a round of in vitro fertilization (IVF). Not your typical vacation itinerary, but one that’s becoming increasingly popular among American women struggling with fertility issues and overwhelmed by the cost of IVF in the United States.

Single-payer health care: what Californians need to know | CALmatters
California's Democratic lawmakers are pondering ways to lay the groundwork for a single-payer health care system in the state. Supporters say such a system would cover everyone, streamline an unwieldy bureaucracy and bring down costs. Opponents say it could lead to unacceptably high taxes, a flight of doctors to other states and a rationing of care as patients’ needs overwhelm providers. We explain. March 28, 2018
How will the White House make amends for censoring single payer in its Iowa health care forum "live blog" transcript? | Corrente
Executive summary: Reuters coverage and a YouTube of the event show that the White House live blogger suppressed a single payer question asked by Dr. Jess Federowicz of PNHP. [Welcome, Kos readers. Dr. Federowicz is live blogging with us this morning!] Dr. Jess Federowicz, M.D. is a board-certified psychiatrist and clinician investigator in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Iowa. Dr. Fiedorowicz also won the lottery for a ticket to the White House's Iowa Health Care forum -- after Iowa's (Democratic!) Governor Chet Culver, most shamefully, had tried to sell the tickets to corporate sponsors! Dr. Federowicz participated in the protests outside the hall, and also spoke inside the hall at the forum. As reported by Reuters India*: Dr. Jess Fiedorowicz, a psychiatrist at the University of Iowa Hospitals who was with the protest group, told the meeting a majority of Americans support a "single payer" or government-run national health insurance program. "Can we put it on the table for discussion?" Fiedorowicz asked Nancy-Ann De Parle, director of the White House Office on Health Reform. "Can we study costing? Can we study feasibility of this truly universal, socially just and fiscally responsible alternate to our currently unjust and woefully inefficient system?" Fiedorowicz asked. Many in the crowd applauded. And yet -- and I know this wil surprise you -- Dr. Fiedorowicz appears nowhere in the White House "live blog" of the event! Is Reuters wrong? Let's go to the tape (or in this case, the YouTube): March 26, 2018
Film at 11: Selective posting from A list "progressives" who refuse to cover Anthony Weiner videos on single payer | Corrente
I'm shocked. (And who said symbols weren't important?) Our tribunes of the people do willingly link to Wiener's stunt video, where Weiner gives Republicans the chance to "put up or shut up" on abolishing the "government run" kind of program they profess to hate: Medicare. And it's a great video. Great theatre, if you will. March 26, 2018
