  • Benjamin Rush on Medical Freedom

    Unless we put Medical Freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship…to restrict the art of healing to one class of men, and deny equal privilege to others, will be to constitute the Bastille of Medical Science. All such laws are un-American and despotic and have no place in a Republic….The Constitution of this Republic should make special privilege for Medical Freedom as well as Religious Freedom.
