No Heart

The poor and the uninsured don't have the same access to life-saving organs for donation as other patients, Joy Victory of ABC News reports in "Need an Organ? It Helps to Be Rich." Victory used an article in a scientific journal as the starting point for her reporting, but she personalizes the story through the experiences of Brian Shane Regions, an uninsured man who needs a heart transplant. Thanks for the tip from the Poynter Institute's Al Tompkins and his "Al's Morning Meeting."
