For Pennsylvania's doctors, a gag order on fracking chemicals

This is completely unacceptable.

"Under a new law, doctors in Pennsylvania can access information about chemicals used in natural gas extraction—but they won't be able to share it with their patients. A provision buried in a law passed last month is drawing scrutiny from the public health and environmental community, who argue that it will "gag" doctors who want to raise concerns related to oil and gas extraction with the people they treat and the general public."

It is unacceptable

I can't understand how a body of elected officials could vote "yes" on such a bill. So much for fighting against tyranny.

Except for the fact that IS acceptable

Which is exactly the place we've come to. Raping the environment to save a buck for a few more years on natural gas? Punishing doctors who tell their patients about the poison in their bodies?

Good job, human race. Really. Nice work we've all done.
