37. Progressives could greet the anti-abortion folks with these tidbits
on Frist:

HCA does not trumpet its reported involvement with abortion. But, in April, Catholic Financial Services Corporation (CFSC), a mutual fund company, announced that it was starting an S&P 500 Index Fund that would "exclude companies on the abortion issue"�and that HCA was one of only six companies on the index that would be excluded on these grounds. A spokesman for the mutual fund explained to me last week that the company excludes hospital chains that perform abortions and pharmaceutical companies that deal in drugs that induce abortion.


Given Frist's professed anxiety about government rationing of health care services, it is ironic that he turned his Senate office into a makeshift clinic for members of Congress to receive flu shots days prior to October 5, 2004, when the Federal government asked healthy adults to forego the vaccinations because of a nation-wide shortage. Some of the Congressmen Frist treated took the shot under advice from their doctors. However it is common for high-ranking officials to obtain such privileges both as a result of influence and as a result of the fact that they are an important component of the government and their incapacitation would hamper its operation.
