Health Care Bill Omits Access to Spiritual Care
Date:12/11/2007

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- On the eve of a vote to expand health care coverage throughout the state, Californians have reason to be concerned that spirituality is about to be squeezed out of their health care system.

Under summons from Speaker Fabian Nunez, California assemblymen are flocking to the capitol today in anticipation of a vote on AB X1 1, a bill intended to provide universal health care coverage for all Californians. At this time, legislators have been unwilling to confirm whether the bill includes provision for Californians to seek spiritual treatment for their healthcare needs.

"If their silence is any indication, this is a remarkable omission from AB X1 1," concluded Brian Talcott, state spokesman for the Christian Science Church, "considering the building tide of support in California -- and across the nation -- for the role of prayer in maintaining an individual's well-being."

Talcott praised Speaker Nunez for working to create a system to meet the health care needs of Californians in an affordable, fair and universal way. "Any plan that sets out to meet the health care needs of Californians must include access to spiritual care," said Talcott. "California has long stood for possibility and we hope the legislature will maintain the state's over 150-year tradition of opening possibilities for its citizens instead of restricting them."
