University of California President Michael V. Drake, M.D., issued a statement yesterday on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

He starts as follows:

For nearly 50 years, people in the United States have had the right to make private, informed choices about their health care and their futures.

Wow! Where has Michael Drake been?

Are people allowed to buy bare bones catastrophic health insurance?

If employers want to provide health insurance to employees that doesn’t have all the features the federal government wants, are they allowed to?

Are people allowed to get prescription drugs without a prescription from a doctor?

Was I allowed to buy the Moderna or the Pfizer vaccine before the FDA had approved it?

I could easily ask 20 more such questions. I bet many of my readers could too.

Health care and health insurance are among the most regulated industries in the United States.

Dr. Drake’s ignorance is off the charts.
