Statement before the Subcommittee on Select Education of the Committee on Education and Labor, U.S. House of Representatives, Washington, DC
Description:
Koop's testimony was part of his effort to establish policies that would protect the civil rights of infants with birth defects and other disabilities, namely the right to medical treatment, an effort that succeeded when in October 1984 Congress expanded the scope of federal child abuse laws to proscribe the withholding of medically indicated treatment from such infants.
