Dr. Treadwell: Courts Alarmed by Treadwell’s Invasive Law


ANCHORAGE — Mead Treadwell’s pursuit of an alarming policy to expose a woman’s personal information to the government is raising serious constitutional questions after a judge’s ruling.

“Mead Treadwell’s invasive policies would bring the government into the doctor’s offices of Alaska women, expose their personal information and have the state to make decisions for them,” said Susanne Fleek-Green, Campaign Manager for Alaskans for Begich.

Treadwell’s disturbing policy would force Alaska women to report their medical information to the government so the state can determine whether or not their “condition” is “medically necessary” and makes them eligible for certain reproductive services.

The regulations expose a woman’s medical records to the government and limit access to abortions for women on Medicaid – many of whom have limited economic resources and access to health care.

The State of Alaska is currently being sued by Planned Parenthood for Treadwell’s efforts, which have serious constitutional questions.
