Angelia Jolie’s Choice – NYTimes Opinion

Angelina Jolie wrote in the New York Times yesterday about her choice to have a double mastectomy, given her genetic predisposition to breast and ovarian cancer. However, she brings up issues of access to testing and the high cost. I’m glad she’s talking about this important issue (and encouraging others to talk about topics that were once taboo), but it also brings up serious issues related to health care in the U.S.
