Watch out for heat stroke this summer, as temperatures rise in the health care debate. The current reform efforts might make your head spin, but U.S. Catholic has the antidote to the ear aches and laryngitis caused by too much yelling: our special section, Health care with heart. Health care, the Catholic Church says, is a universal human right from conception to natural death, but what does this mean? What do we as Catholics have to contribute to the conversation? Browse our special section on health care to keep up with the latest news and opinions on health care reform from a Catholic perspective, read past health care coverage from U.S. Catholic, and share your opinion as well.
