Recently a petition has been circulating protesting a push by insurance companies to make a mastectomy an outpatient procedure. A bill has been submitted several times to congress for patients to receive a minimum of 48 hours of hospital coverage. The bill has not passed in prior attempts, but it is currently in the Senate waiting for approval. Lifetime has a petition available for signing if you are interested in supporting this bill.
Given that so many things circulate the internet without any inkling of truth, if you would like to check this one out, Snopes confirms that it is true. Mom
