The Catholic Church and U.S. Health Care Reform
Angrosino, Michael V.
Medical Anthropology Quarterly. 1996 Mar; 10(1): 3-19.
The Catholic Church is the largest (and arguably the best organized) single denomination in the United States, and it has extensive holdings in the health care field. It therefore has a material stake in the current debate over health care reform, as well as a moral interest in a question touching on the ethics of resource distribution. The position of the church on health care is analyzed as a case study of how organized religion interacts with and attempts to influence social policy in a pluralistic society.
