Assessing Health Care Reform: the post mortems are starting

Frontline tonight is doing what looks to be a highly critical analysis of how the  bill took shape and passed.  It promises an inside look at American politics, so be warned.  People outside North American ought to be able to  watch a  video of the program, but it isn’t clear when it will be up; you can  check the site here.

(h/t to nyeve’s important analysis.)

The National Catholic Reporter, which supported  the HCR bill, has an interesting and detailed report of what it means for access to abortion.  My skimming  through suggested a more positive picture than I had expected – that is, positive from the position of a feminist philosopher, as opposed  to  the NCR.   If you read it more carefully, please let us know what you think.
