Health Care Reform: Setting Doctors Free [Livestream]
Dr. John David Lewis: Obamacare is a moral assault on free people, and an attack on human life itself.

John Lewis has a unique perspective on this issue, both as an advocate for individual rights and as a cancer patient. Don’t miss this hard-hitting lecture on the deepest evil of government medicine.
