"C" it should be

"..argue that...and that..."
"imperative to"

D. reform of the tort system is necessary in bringing malpractice insurance premiums

the parallel structure is : has argued that ........and that ...........
Thus, A and B and C remain.
B is eliminated becoz "if" is usually used to express conditions.
Between A and C, C is preferred with the use of " to bring".
C it is.
