Our Moral and Ethical Obligation to Stop the Genocide in the Sudan
Washington State Congressman Jim McDermott suggests a way to end the Darfur genocide. Of any member of Congress, he's got the dossier to back this up - he should use his background to front this issue as much as possible. Not only is McDermott a physician, he served as a Foreign Service medical officer based in Zaire, providing psychiatric services to Foreign Service, AID, and Peace Corps personnel in sub-Saharan Africa. He also founded and chairs the Congressional Task Force on International HIV/AIDS. Add to that the fact that he is the co-author of National Health Care legislation, and that he is leading the fight in the House of Representatives to guarantee all Americans comprehensive health care coverage, and that makes him my hero.
