100. You do realize this isn't about Breast Cancer
I mean use the logic and not the passion.

There are many many ways to treat Breast Cancer, this happens to be one of them - a newer field. But it's not Breast Cancer only.

Second, there is no reason that women cannot use other forms of treatment for Breast Cancer. I mean geez, the way some of these posts are being made it sounds like HCR says that we are to never ever do anything for Breast Cancer again. And even still this isn't about women - there are many many other causes. Hell, what about the little children with diabetes? What aobut the old men with rheumatoid arthritis. But I guess it just sounds better to say "OMG THE DEMOCRATS HATE WOMEN".

This bill can easily be revisited on it's own merits. Of course it would take the work on our part to help get it happened and btw, if Biologics do work you have major lobbying firms like Susan G. Korman, JDF and other groups that are very effective at lobbying for this stuff.
