Pro-Life NRLC: Bias obvious in advance care planning promotion

Nat'l Right to Life Committee (NRLC)An Institute of Medicine report apparently favors advance care planning in ObamaCare – but there may be a hidden motive in advancing the concept.

When ObamaCare was first proposed, one of the provisions called for doctors to be paid to talk to Medicare patients about advance care planning – i.e., whether they would want lifesaving medical treatment. Burke Balch of the National Right to Life Committee reminds OneNewsNow that following an outcry from the public the provision was dropped – but he contends it is now being revived and, in part, encouraged by the Institute of Medicine.


"And a lot of health insurers are now paying organizations to cold call their beneficiaries – those who are insured – to start sort of talking them [about] agreeing to sign documents that say they'll forgo [such] treatment," he explains.
