For those of you finding me via @courtneymilan@AnaMardoll, let me explain what I mean by this bill eliminates the ability to get renewals for chronic pain patients &why what Gillibrand is suggesting creates an absolute NO vote for supporting her. #OpioidCrisis#pain
(1) Before we even begin to discuss the situations this bill will create, no one who claims they are pro-life should be proposing, let alone supporting, a bill that limits a patient’s access to treatment for long term pain.
(2) The entire pro-choice platform revolves around the idea that medical treatment is for the Dr and the patient. Not the government. Not the Church. Not the community. It is for the patient and their dr to decide what’s best for them. Not anyone else.
