Access to Ob-Gyns Continues to Increase Belying Malpractice “Crisis” | DC Metro Area Medical Malpractice Law Blog

5 stars

For years now, proponents of medical malpractice “reform” have alleged that physicians, particularly ob-gyns, have been fleeing jurisdictions leaving more and more counties throughout the country without access to doctors.  In fact, in his 2006 State of the Union address, President Bush told the nation that there are “nearly 1,500 American counties without a single ob-gyn.”  This statement, however, is simply wrong.

In a recent study done by Public Citizen, a consumer advocacy organization, it was proven that fewer counties every year for more than a decade have been left without ob-gyns.  It is clear that the proponents of medical malpractice “reform” continue to spread myths to advance selfish interests in an effort to strip Americans of their civil rights.
