Sen. Frist's family anecdote

According to Pennsylvania's WNEP, the majority leader/surgeon says he's seen Topic A come up in discussions in his own family:

The topic of discussion Thursday was medical liability reform.

Frist said the lack of it is why his own son chose not to enter the field.

"He said, 'Dad I'm not going into medicine. I've loved pre-med and I want to help people, but why would I want to subject my life to inevitable lawsuits, one after another, when I've done nothing wrong?'" Frist related.
