"The Constitution of this republic should make special provisions for Medical Freedom."

As individuals our health care decisions are very personal. We should not be restricted in our ability to avoid drugs or medical procedures we do not want. We should not be denied treatment options. We should be given information in full context and allowed to make our own decisions.
"Dr. Rush wanted every American citizen to have the right to choose and the right to practice the form of medicine that the citizen deemed most beneficial to personal health.  This would also allow the physician the right to practice all forms of medicine.""Dr. Rush feared that medicine would in time  organize into an "undercover dictatorship" that would suppress medical competition." 200 years later, we can see a significant reduction in our ability to access safe affordable health care.We should institute Dr Rush's plan by adding a 28th amendment stating that American citizens have the right to choose and the right to practice the form of medicine that the citizen deemes most beneficial to personal health.
