"This creepy, controlling paternalism has plenty of fans in politics on both sides of the partisan divide. Doctors are the politicians' enablers, lending the weight of their 'expertise' to the nanny instinct of the political class in exchange for the feeling of being important. No amount of expertise -- medical or otherwise -- should give somebody the right to interfere with another adult’s choices." (08/26/11)
