Alabama Republican Lawmaker Pushes Repeal Of Law Named After His Dead Patient

Secular Talk

An Alabama doctor-turned-lawmaker, Larry Stutts, is seeking to overturn a state law called “Rose’s law.” Rose’s law requires health insurance companies to pay for minimum post-pregnancy hospital stays.

The law is named for a woman who died 16 years ago from a heart attack soon after she had a child, reportedly because she did not get adequate post-pregnancy care.

The law has nothing to do with Obamacare, according to, though State Senator Stutts is trying to present it that way.

Oddly, Stutts was that woman’s doctor at the time.
