Ron Black: Autism Insurance Coverage DOA

We kind of knew that this would not be the year to see autism coverage mandated, nor really is there a chance next legislative session.

But the rally for health care reform proved that once again, it's all about the money - all about cash flow rather than human life.

It is ironic that the Chambers of Commerce and Pam Peterson are going at it over the issue of human life, but children with autism don't mean much to the pro-lifers I suppose. Heck, I am seriously pro-life but the irony of how folks are up at arms over stem cell research on embryos but couldn't give a rats ass about kids with disabilities such as autism is staggering.

I agree. I guess because it doesn't offend any industry group.
